Bean-shaped Audio Earbuds Because, That’s The Ear Shape Everyone Has

It’s funny how biometric never gets to the ear since it is a known fact that no two person ears are the same. Ok. That will be totally weird. Anywho, we are not going to talk about the anatomy of the ear, but we heard the science of the shape of our ears had some in-ear headphones makers wanting to custom earbuds for each individual – that’s if, of course, the individual is willing to pay the price, which usually is, how do you say? Alarming? However, there’s a Netherlands-based outfit, Allocacoc, said it has discovered that, despite the differences in individual’s ears, they actually found there is actually a common shape in all ears.

This Dive Tank Floats On The Surface So You Dive Without Being Weighed Down

Remember how Qui-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson) and Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor), led by Jar Jar Binks, dive underwater to reach Otoh Gunga in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace? In that scene, the Jedis used futuristic tiny breathing apparatus on their mouths to survive underwater.

The idea behind AirBuddy is to let avid divers explore shallow water without being bogged down by heavy and clunky dive equipment. It bridges the gap between snorkeling, which you literally just scratch the surface of the ocean, and scuba diving.

Take for example, in the U.S.A, the Transportation Security Administration, or more famously known as TSA, is the authoritative figure to ensure our flight is free from terrorist-related dangers, but the search methods, like the full body scanner, is nothing short of controversial.
