we always talked about capturing the moment that matters to us the most to us as we go about our daily routine, but how do we actually know which is the ‘moment’? our brains know that and with the help of the Neurocam by Japan-based Neurowear, it will detect that moment and record a five-second video.
we have seen a few interesting concepts of how to ride on what the nature has to offer, namely fire and heat, to charge your portable gadgets, such as the CampStove, the FlameStower, and of course, the usual solar chargers, and now Hydrobee joins the rank with an interesting proposal: using the power of running water to charge up a portable battery that could be used to charge virtually any USB-powered devices.
we said it again and we will say it once more: we don’t always try to shove things into your face that begs you to buy, buy and buy (though we most certainly always do that). that said, we would like you to meet the Wildcat Robot, the latest creation of Massachusetts-based Boston Dynamics, a robotics design company. obviously, you won’t be able to buy one of these creatures
usually, skateboarders will never fail to get the rightful attention, however, if you ever need a boost in the look-at-me department, then look no further than the Hydroflex Hi-tech Composite Skateboards. seriously, if these funky colored (we are tempted to say psychedelic) skate decks don’t attract any attention at all, we don’t know what will.
just when we thought desktop 3D scanner was revolutionary, the Structure Sensor completely blew our minds away. Structure Sensor is basically a portable 3D scanner made specifically to work with iPad to capture objects as digital 3D models. beneath its anodized aluminum enclosure are IR emitters and cameras to do
breaking an arm or a leg in a game of sports is a norm. we are not saying that it should happen, but if it happens, it happens. it is not going to take away your life or anything like that. you recover and you pick up the game again. but we can’t say the same for head injuries, which could often lead to permanent damage, long term inconveniences and even death. scary eh?
with well over 800 shark attacks over the last two hundred years or so in Australia alone, there is little reason why divers and surfers shouldn’t be worried. however, a new type of camouflage wetsuit jointly developed by Shark Attack Mitigation Systems (SAMS) and Ocean Institute at University of Western Australia, dubbed the SAMS Shark Deterrent Wetsuits might help in reducing the odds of you being snack on the next time in take a dip into the open water.
keeping mozzies off can be a risky business. you know. it is either you get a super effective solution that will possibly harm your health, or risk catching mosquito-borne diseases like Malaria, Dengue and the likes, if you fail to stop the nasty pest from taking 1,000,000th of a gallon of your blood. but that’s until now. the folks behind the Kite
most people dream of heading into space, but how many of us average joes can afford a 200+ grand tickets for a flight to the space few years down the road? almost none, i believe. lucky for us, there is an affordable alternative to show your family and friends your presence in space and that’s to take a space selfie without actually being into the space.
for all intents and purposes, helicopters are never designed for speed, but for hovering which allows them to perform what traditional fixed wing crafts can’t and go to places where other crafts can’t. as such they have been doing pretty damn well in areas such as transportation of crews to and from oil rigs and
