Original DeLorean Time Machine Restored, Made into a Documentary

If restoration shows are porn to you and you also happen to be a huge Back to the Future, then we bet you will be thrilled that Universal Studios has collaborated with a bunch of BTTF fans with “knowledge, passion and the obsessive attention to detail” to save the original 1985 DeLorean Time Machine. Yes. That was Doc’s ride that took Marty McFly back to the past, into the future, and into the gunslinger era and they are in the process of making a documentary covering every aspect of the restoration work like any great restoration shows do. Restoration-loving, cable fanatics will know what we are talking about. The elements familiar to reality shows should be expected, which includes success, setbacks and possibly, some doses of resentment in the team (though we are not sure of the latter. It’s speculation on our part). Continue reading Original DeLorean Time Machine Restored, Made into a Documentary

Gas Scale Not Only Lets You Know How Much Gas is Left in the Tank, But Also Detects Gas Leakages Too

By now, gas level sensing device isn’t new. In fact, we have featured a couple of such devices here. However, the Gas Scale here stands out as one that not only let you in on how much gas is left inside the tank, but it also doubles as a life-saving gas leakage detector. Since gas such as LPG is heavier than air, it tends to sink and that’s where Gas Scale’s built-in gas detector picks up the leak. It then pushes this alert to your smartphone via Bluetooth LE, so you can take appropriate action before it is too late. Of course, the gas detector is only as useful if it is used indoor, or when the gas tank is placed in an enclosed location such as the RV or boat’s gas storage compartment. The Gas Scale also stands out as one, one-size fits all gas level sensor. Continue reading Gas Scale Not Only Lets You Know How Much Gas is Left in the Tank, But Also Detects Gas Leakages Too

There is an inverted exponential phenomena in the world of gadgets, particularly laptops, where we are seeing lesser USB ports but an increase in USB port-dependent gadgets. It’s probably not a big deal, but nevertheless, an inconvenience that we rather not live with, which is why we have USB hubs. Problem solved, you think? Yeah, probably.

Neo Smartpen N2 Lets You Write in Analog and Records Them Digitally without Additional Hardware

We are well into 2015, but looking around us, we can see that the good’ol pen is still many people’s best friend. With the pen, you can whip it out and start scribbling or doodling away. No hassle, no fuss. However, that analog piece is no good in the digital world, isn’t it? What we need is a bridge that will let us have both analog and digital copies. Sure, you can take a digital image or scan it, but that’s hassle and why do so when you can have a pen that lets you do whatever you wished in analog and keep a digital copy too? And doing so without any additional hardware other than the pen itself and special notebook. Sounds too good to be true? Well, not really, because that’s what the second generation Neo Smartpen, N2, is geared up to do and it is not a concept. It is a real working product which you can buy now, but we will come to that later. Continue reading Neo Smartpen N2 Lets You Write in Analog and Records Them Digitally without Additional Hardware

Grifta Morphing Gamepad Wants to Replace Your Keyboard Entirely

Game controller or more correctly, gamepad, has evolved over the decades. It started as a simple flat rectangular box of the classic Nintendo console and evolved to become more ergonomic like those controllers offered by Xbox One and Playstation 4. However, despite the evolution, one thing remain unchanged and that is, it is still a one-piece device. Nothing quite wrong about that actually, but a UK-based company thinks otherwise. They thought that the left and the right should be separated when needed and hence, they invented Grifta Morphing Gamepad, a modular game controller that comes in three separate modules: the left unit, the right unit and a connector to bridge the two when you prefer to use the left and right as one piece. Continue reading Grifta Morphing Gamepad Wants to Replace Your Keyboard Entirely

The World’s Smallest Working 3D-printed Cordless Drill is No Bigger Than Your Index Finger

To be clear, we are not sure if it is really the ‘world’s smallest’ 3D-printed cordless drill, but looking at how small it is and the fact that it is actually a working drill, it doesn’t really matter. It is still something to behold. And yes, it wasn’t a typo; this thing actually works. For what purpose? We are not quite sure. Created by Auckland-based engineer by the name of Lance Abernethy, this super tiny power tool is just 17mm tall, 13mm long and 7.5mm wide, and it is designed to accept a 0.5mm twist drill which, according to Lance, can pierce soft objects. Why of course, it can. A 0.5mm drill is almost like a needle, which I guess it doesn’t quite need drilling to pierce any soft objects, does it? However, the point here is not if it can or cannot pierce whatever; it is 3D-printed and it is working. A freaking 17mm tall power tool that works. That’s the point.
