  • IndieGoGo: Meet JIBO, the friendly family robot

    It's a Gadget
    Oli Anderson
    19 Jul 2014 | 2:25 pm
    Robotics have been making leaps and bounds, but their applications as an actual consumer product have been limited. Until now, thanks an IndieGoGo funded project called JIBO. Created by Dr. Cynthia Breazeal of MIT, JIBO is being hailed as the first “family” robot. It is meant as more than an appliance, the crowdfunded project explains. It is a companion, meant to simulate realistic interaction and tailor itself to the personality of the humans around it. It recognizes faces, which allows it to adapt to each person and keep them in their systems. It adapts to each person’s…

  • The Incipio OffGRID Thin iPhone Battery Case is the Total Package

    Gear Diary
    Perry Brauner
    20 Jul 2014 | 4:00 pm
    I love iPhone battery cases. They’re convenient because they provide an extra boost when your phone’s battery inevitably wears down, but most battery cases are bulky and heavy. Introducing the Incipio offGRID, a thin battery case for the iPhone 5 and 5s that provides an extra 180% battery capacity with minimal bulk. The Incipio offGRID retails for $79.99. The Incipio offGRID is not a novel concept; there are many iPhone cases out there with the same purpose and a similar design. However, I’d argue that the Incipio offGRID is the best iPhone battery case that I’ve ever tested. The…

    Have you ever taken a photo of your lunch, or dinner, and posted it to your favorite form of social media? Some of your friends might like your photo, but that’s about all that can happen with it. Virgin Mobile is giving people in Australia a way to turn their food pics into real meals. This may influence people to post food photos more frequently than usual – but that isn’t a bad thing! You can turn a photo of food into a real meal for someone else. It is very easy to do. First, take a photo of delicious food. Next, share it on Twitter with the hashtag #mealforameal. OzHarvest…

  • Kobe Bryant Met With Jony Ive To ‘Talk Product’

    Adnan Farooqui

    A few weeks back there were rumors that Apple had roped Lakers’ legend Kobe Bryant to test out its new wearable device. Bryant was also spotted out and about at Apple’s HQ in Cupertino, California. As expected there was endless speculation about the purpose of his visit and neither the company nor Bryant’s camp said anything about the visit. In a new interview Bryant himself reveals that he did indeed spend a day at Apple, interacting with design czar Jony Ive to “talk product.” Hold your horses there, Bryant isn’t confirming that Ive strapped an iWatch…
  • iPhone 6 Preorders Already Being Taken By Online Sellers In China

    22 Jul 2014 | 7:19 am
    Apple is yet to officially announced the iPhone 6 and yet several online sellers in China have already started taking preorders for the next generation smartphones. China is one of the most lucrative markets in the world as smartphone adoption there grows whereas it reaches a saturation point in the West. Which is why a lot of companies are focusing on this crucial market, Apple being one of them. These online sellers require people to pay a deposit in order to secure a unit when the iPhone 6 finally comes out later this year. One big issue that Apple faces down in China is the gray market.
  • Next Generation iPad Mini Will Be 30% Thinner [Rumor]

    Adnan Farooqui
    22 Jul 2014 | 7:10 am
    In a few months Apple is going to unveil its new smartphones and tablets. This year the company’s third iPad mini is going to be released. Last year it updated the tablet with a Retina display and a faster processor. Rumor has it that this time around there’s a big change coming. The tablet’s moniker will apparently be changed to Air primarily due to the fact that it is going to be 30 percent thinner than its predecessor. Apple crowned the 9.7-inch iPad with the Air moniker last year so it wouldn’t be a surprise if it did the same with the iPad mini. Rumors coming in…
  • Netflix Apple TV Channel Gets Post-Play Feature

    Adnan Farooqui
    22 Jul 2014 | 7:02 am
    One of the things I like about binge watching TV shows on Netflix is that I don’t have to do anything to launch the next episode when the one I am currently watching ends. This feature is known as Post-Play and works with all TV shows available on the online streaming service. However this feature only works if you’re viewing Netflix using a PC or mobile app. Netflix’s Apple TV channel, or app if you will, has never had this feature, but that might soon be about to change. Post-Play gives users a countdown before the next episode starts to stream, the countdown is generally…

    It’s taking Parker Brothers long enough to make a Harry Potter-themed edition of Monopoly, so CustomLumos decided to take matters into their own hands. The result? This awesome, one-of-a-kind Monopoly board came that both wizards and muggles can enjoy. The rules remain the same, although the entire game plays out with a touch of magic and mystique. It starts with the packaging: instead of the usual box, the game comes in a chest instead. From the paper money and actual board itself to the cards and tokens, every little element featured in this custom-made board game has been…

Too ugly doesn’t mean it doesn’t taste as good or is less nutritional, so French supermarket chain Intermarché decided to buy these leftover fruits and veggies, and sell them heavily discounted (30% off) in a special aisle named “Les Fruits Et Legumes Moches” (“The Inglorious Fruits And Vegetables”).

    BBQ traditionalists will probably have a fit at the sight of the Handheld Food Smoker, but having had the chance to try a meal prepared with a similar contraption, we’d like to tell them to keep a open mind. Clearly you won’t be making any fall-off-the-bone ribs with this smoke, seeing as it’s cold. But you will be able to infuse a bit of a smoky flavour into some meals, just as they’re about to be served. The device holds smouldering wood shavings, the smoke from which is blown through a tube thanks to its internal fan. If you get a little dome to go over your plate,…

    Date rape is a real problem. Anything you can do to put the odds back on your side is a good thing, so we’re excited to report on the pd.id, the Personal Drink ID. It’s a small device, roughly the size of a stick of gum, that once dunked into your drink will alert you to the potential presence of drugs. To determine the contents of the drink, the device appears to analyze its spectroscopic signature, its reaction to an electric current, and its temperature. These three tests are combined and analyzed against the company’s database to determine if you’re in the clear.

    This article first appeared in the San Jose Mercury News Samsung, according to TechCrunch, is in talks to buy home automation company SmartThings for $200 million. As of my deadline, the deal hadn’t been confirmed, but if it goes through, it would put the giant Korean electronics company in direct competition with Apple and Google. But even if this deal doesn’t pan out, you can be sure that Samsung — along with just about every other consumer electronics company — will be entering this market.

    In May, the Federal Communications Commission issued a proposed new rule on network neutrality that critics say would open the door to fast and slow lanes on the Internet. The reason I’m writing about it now is because Friday is the extended deadline for posting comments on the proposal. You can comment on other people’s comments until mid-September. Network neutrality, or what some call “an open Internet,” would guarantee that Internet service providers not discriminate between content providers based on business factors. Almost all agree it wouldn’t allow an…

The company has been dominant in the online retail market, but it has also pushed into other services such as video streaming with Amazon Prime, tablets, and even drones. Amazon’s recently-announced Fire smartphone is an intriguing a product within a given...
  • Apple Anticipates Record iPhone Demand, Asks Suppliers To Prep 70-80 Million Large Screen Handsets

    22 Jul 2014 | 5:00 am
    Apparently Apple is anticipating not only record demand for its next iPhone launch, but a near exponential rise in sales compared to previous models (slight exaggeration). Or perhaps Apple wants to avoid lengthy backorders -- either way, it's being reported that Apple has asked suppliers to ready between 70 million an 80 million iPhone 6 devices...

  • Moto X Is $100 Off for 16 GB & $125 off for 32 GB & 64 GB Versions Until July 23

    Wayne Schulz
    22 Jul 2014 | 8:15 am
    Sure the Moto X Android smartphone seems like it’s perpetually on sale, so I cannot say if you miss this current “sale” of $100 off a 16 GB (no contract) or $125 off a 32 or 64 GB that the deal will be lost forever. What I can tell you is that this is one rock-solid piece of Android. At $299 for an off-contract near skinless device, you’d be crazy to overlook it. Yes the screen is about average at 4.7″, and rumors are floating of an X+1 model soon. But for those needing an immediate replacement – it’s tough to beat these perpetual off-contract deals.
  • The Narrative Clip, A Gadget I Really Wanted to Love

    Daniel Cohen
    21 Jul 2014 | 1:00 pm
    When the Narrative Clip arrived I was excited. Sure, having a small 5MP wearable camera that takes a new picture every 30 seconds would have been great during my recent trip to Israel but it sadly arrived the day after I left. Still, I could see many ways this unobtrusive gadget might make a great photographic diary going forward.The unit I was sent is just a 30 day loaner, but my initial thought was that after sending it back day 29 of the loan I would order my own and keep using the service. After just a few days with the unit I’m honestly not unhappy to be sending the loaner back and…

  • Case Logic Berkeley Plus Backpack: From Babies to Books, It’s Got Your Back

    21 Jul 2014 | 9:00 am
    We were using a generic LL Bean backpack as a diaper bag, but when sent the Case Logic Berkeley Plus to review, we switched to it as our main backpack and never looked back. This is a backpack meant for a 15.6″ laptop, but we found it does an amazing job holding kiddo stuff PLUS delicate electronics; it’s only $59.99. This is a fairly well structured backpack, and it’s quite stiff and holds form even empty. Even when it’s stuffed to the gills it doesn’t expand to an enormous size, which is nice. It holds a great deal, as we’ll see in a moment, but you…
  • The Incipio OffGRID Thin iPhone Battery Case is the Total Package

    Perry Brauner
    20 Jul 2014 | 4:00 pm
    I love iPhone battery cases. They’re convenient because they provide an extra boost when your phone’s battery inevitably wears down, but most battery cases are bulky and heavy. Introducing the Incipio offGRID, a thin battery case for the iPhone 5 and 5s that provides an extra 180% battery capacity with minimal bulk. The Incipio offGRID retails for $79.99. The Incipio offGRID is not a novel concept; there are many iPhone cases out there with the same purpose and a similar design. However, I’d argue that the Incipio offGRID is the best iPhone battery case that I’ve ever tested. The…

    Samsung's tablet approach the last few years has been to toss every conceivable size into the stores to see if anything takes. They tended to all look they same, perform the same (not great), and vary by just an inch or two here and there. The Galaxy Tab S is different, though.

This cool looking mini-house is made from Finnish pine and has a six-sided charcoal grill as it’s centerpiece just begging for a huge hunk of meat to be placed on it.

  • Civil War carbine with a "coffee grinder" for corn and wheat

    Cory Doctorow
    11 Jul 2014 | 7:55 am
    Notwithstanding the rumors of Civil War era carbines with attached coffee-grinders to help soldiers with their bean-juice, the grinder on on this 1859 "Coffee Mill" Sharps Carbine is thought to have been used for corn or wheat. An excellent history of coffee's role in the Civil War by Jon Grinspan has kindled interest in guns that doubled as coffee-mills. But the curator's notes from the Springfield Armory Museum for this piece notes that tests by an historian suggest that it was not used for that purpose. Manufactured by Sharps Rifle Co., Hartford, Ct. - Model 1859 Sharps single-shot…

I first saw the $130 campstove demonstrated by Vinay Gupta, a permaculture/refugee tech guru whom we've featured here before. It uses an electric fan to drive combustion to unthinkable heights, allowing it to power a small thermoelectric generator that keeps the fan going (a small battery starts things off). The generator puts out enough power to run a USB charge-port that you can use to keep your phone and lights charged. The whole thing is the size of a 1l nalgene water-bottle…

As usual, they are unappreciative little jerks. Except the one kid who wants to dance to the theme song and loves Leonardo, he seemed decent. After watching the intro, they then had the children vote on whether or not they'd be interested in watching more of the cartoon. It got voted down 7 to 5. May God have mercy on your souls.

  • Prayers Answered: Spray-Can Cake Batter Is Coming

    22 Jul 2014 | 9:00 am
    20-year old Harvard student John McCallum had a dream. A dream of spray-can cake batter that cooks in the microwave in about a minute and still has the same texture and taste as regular cake. And he made that dream come true. The only dream I've ever had come true? The one where I trip and fall and lose teeth. After learning about the chemistry behind what makes cakes rise, the 20-year-old decided to see if the accelerant in aerosol cans, which releases bubbles into the product as it comes out, would also allow cakes to rise without any baking soda or baking powder. Luckily for us, it did.

This is a video of that performance. You think the Queen is the one masterminding all the complaints to George R.R. for taking to long to finish the series? "I'm already 88-years old -- George needs to hurry the f*** up!" I imagine her yelling to the roomful of royal guard gathered in a secret command center deep beneath Buckingham Palace.

    I’ve had a similar Rinnai direct vent heater similar to the newer model for over 3 years. It replaced an older Italian made direct vent heater that was poorly designed. The Rinnai has a digital thermostat and uses a piezo lighter. It comes on reliably and there’s no pilot light at all. It direct vents to the outside through a very small pipe and is very easy to install. This heater heats my office in Connecticut from October to April reliably and efficiently. It has a low setting that keeps the temperature above 5OF and then you can set the thermostat from 60 to your preference.

Then, in my thirties, I discovered SuperMemo, and within a year I had memorized thousands of Spanish words and phrases and was finally on my way to speaking Spanish. SuperMemo is software premised on the idea that there is an ideal time to practice any item you are trying to remember. You want to practice when you have almost forgotten it. Too soon, and you waste your time, and even interfere with long term memory formation. Too late, and you’ve lost the trace, and have struggle to learn…

Cooking them at 140 degrees for two whole days makes the best tasting beef dish I ever had. The meat is totally different texture than what a braise gives you and they still are pink on the inside. It sure beats spending $400 for a sous vide water oven. I just set it up in the garage and let it go.

    After seven years of development, engineer Justin Lee created Vessyl, a smart cup that helps people master their health by tracking their liquid intake. The cup has sensors built into the walls that measure the amount of liquid consumed and identify contents so Vessyl can break down things like calories, sugar, protein, and caffeine content via molecular analysis. The information is logged in an app where users specify health goals for customized record keeping. Beyond calorie tracking, Vessyl boasts a feature called Pryme, which estimates and displays real-time hydration levels throughout…

Japanese plant physiologist Shigeharu Shimamura, CEO of Mirai Co., partnered with GE Japan to make his dream of a water, space and energy efficient indoor farming system a reality. Despite having only started production a year ago, the farm is already shipping out 10,000 heads of lettuce per day. The farm is located in Miyagi Prefecture in eastern Japan, the area that was badly hit by a powerful earthquake and tsunami in 2011. At 25,000 square feet, it is nearly half the size of…

    Let’s face the cold, hard facts – many of us actually work in a comfortable, air conditioned environment. In fact, we all have computers that we can more or less call our own at the office, not to mention a nice cubicle that can be turned into a “home away from home”, so to speak. However, some of us do have issues with allergies, especially those that deal with the nose simply because of the air that we breathe. Things are fine and dandy in the countryside where industrialization has not taken place, but for majority of the cities around the world, smog and unhealthy air is one…

    Whether or not we mean to, we do a lot of little things that make our electric bills more than they need to be. There has been a rise in Eco-products that will save us a lot all at once, or in tiny increments over a long period of time. Sometimes they’re a grand idea that help us and the environment, but other times it’s nothing but a waste. The Eco Drain is a good idea that has potential to pay off, so long as you can look at the big picture.

    If you are a fan of beer, then you know of the variety available to you. Some are cheap and gross unless they’re ice cold, and others can be a higher temperature and still hold their own. If you’ve gotten to a point where you want to be a bit more specific, then you might like to know the exact temperature to keep your beer at for optimal enjoyment. If you don’t want to constantly stick a thermometer in every few minutes, then you might like the idea of the Koolernaut.

  • Passwords Are Not Broken, but How We Choose Them Sure Is

    Guest Author
    1 Mar 2014 | 7:55 pm
    By Bruce Schneier, author of recent book, Carry On: Sound Advice from Schneier on Security I’ve been reading a lot about how passwords are no longer good security. The reality is more complicated. Passwords are still secure enough for many applications, but you have to choose a good one. And that’s hard. The best way to explain how to choose a good password is to describe how they’re broken. The most serious attack is called offline password guessing. There are commercial programs that do this, sold primarily to police departments. There are also hacker tools that do the same thing. As…

    The folks at TheSnugg.com saw our review of the My Pad iPad case and wanted some GfG love for their iPad case too. We were more than happy to oblige and covered their leather iPad case. I tested out a brown iPad 3 flip case in distressed brown, and was quite pleased with it. I only had minor quibble which I’ll get to later. Much like their name, the iPad fits snuggly in the case with the appropriate cutouts and holes for buttons, switches and cameras. The cover is a smart cover that works well and has a decently strong magnet that stays closed without requiring a crowbar to open it up.

Once upon a time, these were only to be seen in James Bond movies as mere fantasy. Fast-forward to today, and not only are many of those figments now real, they are extremely affordable. We’ve featured more than a few here at GfG ourselves. The folks at UK’s Online Spy Shop put together a nice infographic that highlights some of the real-world spy gadgets that exist today that once made their debut on the silver screen. Ah, the future…

I just finished watching There’s No Place Like Home which is a documentary about a gentleman who has a crazy dream to purchase the official rules of basketball (James Naismith) at a Sotheby’s auction.  Only one tiny problem:  he does not have the finances to make it happen by himself and the estimate is that the auction will be $1M+.

    This week, the inaugural Code Conference took place on the West Coast and much of the buzz was about Google’s self driving car.  Google co-founder Sergey Brin unveiled the car and showed at least one video of a driver-less car which pretty much looks like a gondola. (image from recode) I’ve been thinking about self-driving cars for a little while now.  As you might (or might not) know, I enjoy cars.  I’ve blogged about the automotive industry a bit, I got to work on multiple automotive pitches on the agency side, and over the years frequent the Greenwich Concours…

  • The MacObserver Publishes Fantastic WiFi Tips from a Former Apple Engineer

    Dave Aiello
    11 Jul 2014 | 12:02 pm
    I get a lot of requests for help from people who have performance issues with WiFi networks at home and in public. It's often difficult to help because most people know WiFi like they know electricity: as long as it does what they want it to do, they don't think about it. The MacObserver published a great article yesterday called 4 Wi-Fi Tips from Former Apple Wi-Fi Engineer. This is not a comprehensive how-to, but there is something in the article for many people who think fairly deeply about the WiFi systems they use. Just to give one example: in the article, Alf Watt says, "Use {the} same…

    FiveThirtyEight.com, a website that's part of ESPN Internet Ventures, is one of the coolest sites on the Internet for data geeks. They constantly come up with articles that pique my imagination. Today they published an article which says that classic rock isn't what it used to be, citing data compiled from "25 classic rock radio stations operating in 30 of the country's largest metropolitan areas for a week in June". This is a fantastic article, in part because the author, Walt Hickey, built a scraper written in Python to compile the data from public play lists. I have to look back at this…

    During last year's Tour de France, I said that Ted King Should Still Be Riding in the Tour de France because he was eliminated after finishing Stage 4 7.6 seconds slower than the required time. King separated his shoulder in last year's Stage 1, managed to finish Stages 2 and 3 under the time limit, but was eliminated in one of the fastest team time trials in Tour de France history. This year Ted King is back riding for Cannondale Pro Cycling, and supporting team leader Peter Sagan who is a sprinter and one of the leading contenders for the Green Jersey. Another reason for me to root for Ted…

  • 3D Printing Gives BMW Workers an Extra Strong Thumb

    Robert
    22 Jul 2014 | 5:54 am
    A novel idea to reduce stress in workers’ joints is being tried out at a BMW production plant in Germany. The Munich factory has given out 3D printed thumbs to workers, for them to use while they are putting together car parts. These so-called super-thumbs are more correctly known as thermoplastic polyurethane thumb protectors. They are made to size for each BMW worker by using a mobile scanning device to measure their hands. The thumb protector is then printed off using a 3D printer and fits snugly over the worker’s real thumb like a second skin. Becomes Rigid When Straightened The…

    The controversy caused by the removal of many links from Google has led to some of them now being reinstated. The issue came about thanks to the internet giant starting to comply with the European Court of Justice “right to be forgotten” ruling. The initial batch of removed links, to articles in the Guardian newspaper and other sites, included details on the former Merrill Lynch boss Stan O’Neal and Scottish referee Dougie McDonald, who was caught lying about a decision he had made. However, the articles whose links had been removed have now been reinstated. Peter Barron is the head…

    Google TV looked like a good idea when it was first announced a few year ago so what went wrong? More importantly, what has changed since then to make Android TV from Google something that it more likely to be successful? The plans for Google TV were unveiled a long time ago now but it never really took off in the way that the internet giant expected it to. However, there are some differences with Android TV that might make the difference. For a start, it has been designed to fit in more easily with the technology we already have in our homes.

    19 Jul 2014 | 4:30 am
    This is an adapter to be inserted into the middle of a Jobo 2502 film spiral. It makes the spiral wider so that 70mm aerial-surveillance or bulk-portrait film can be developed using a basic Jobo 2xxx system; you don't need to buy the expensive and rare 3035 (tank) and 3075 (spiral) designed for 70mm. The adapter changes only the width of the spiral, not the length of film that it holds so you can't develop a whole 5m cassette of 70mm on a single spiral; you must cut it up first into pieces about the same length as a 220 roll. This is for use ONLY with 70mm film and the Jobo 2xxx rotary drum…

It will cost you couple extra baks and you will get unique clocks, nobody else have. This clock face is from 11x11 inches. If you need different material or size - let me know and I'll do it for you.

    Having a supplier contract with Apple can be a very lucrative but difficult option for a company. Losing one can be just as tragic. That’s because Apple is such a large company with large needs. While Apple tends to limit their public discussions about suppliers, we did get a chance to learn a little about the inner workings due to a statement put out by Jeff Williams, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Operations.

  • Watch Futurama’s Intro In 3D

    Jeremiah
    19 Jul 2014 | 8:55 pm
    Remember those days you’re lazying on the couch getting ready for an episode of Futurama and you realized that you ran out of beer? Well thanks to Alexey Zakharov, a creative animator from Russia, you won’t even realize you don’t have the beer anymore. Made with 3ds Max, Nuke, Photoshop, and After Effects, his 3D rendering of the intro is some sort of amazing. Feels like getting a cool upgrade, like getting a salary raise or a new Ferrari, makes you wish the studios would hire him full time for a total remake. Enjoy! You can find the complete renderings here.

    Unlike good whiskey or a nice leather belt, technology doesn’t get better with age. For most places, the market for decade old devices simply isn’t there and in a world where people camp overnight for the newest version of electronics, we must consider: what happens to our old technologies once we don’t want them anymore? For many, that answer is stored away in a drawer full of miscellaneous objects that you open every few months when you’ve misplaced something and you swore you put it in there. The collection of flip phones, Discmans and old chargers slowly grows with each passing…

    Remember the Asimo? Honda first introduced it about 15 years ago but now they are back with a better, blacker, badder version. With a smile. A creepy, malicious smile that tells you all sorts of weird you can imagine from a robot. And artificial intelligence laden robot too, which could single out multiple faces and voices in a crowd. It also has been enhanced with 13 degrees of hand dexterity and the ability to run faster, forwards and back, jump smoothly, and climb up and down the stairs effortlessly.

    Nigel

    In case you hadn’t heard, food is getting more expensive, mostly due to rising harvesting, shipping, and processing costs. One answer to the problem has been to start looking at alternative, more local and efficient ways to produce food for communities wherever they are, and Aquaponics looks like a solid solution. The system marries aquaculture (aka fish farming) with hydroponics, to deliver fresh home grown vegetables along with fish supplies when needed.

    Apple is expected to launch their new Apple iWatch later this year but we still really don’t know what it will look like, and there is actually no confirmation that it will be called the Apple iWatch. Now, some new patent filings have been revealed for the Apple smartwatch which have been granted to Apple recently that might point to a new name. The Apple iWatch patent filing comes with U.S patent No. 8,787,006, and it is for a ‘wrist worn electronic device’, that can be connected to other devices like the iPhone, iPad and iPod. As noted, much of the invention pertains to a…

    Samsung’s follow up to the very well received Galaxy Note 3 could give buyers more choice. There are fresh rumours doing the circuit that speak of Samsung preparing a dramatic revamp for the Galaxy Note 4. These whispers claim that there will be two variants of the Galaxy Note 4, one being of a metallic construct whilst the other retains its plastic dressing. Whether or not that plastic will keep the faux-leather textured coat is yet to be seen. The source also claims that this device will sport a flexible display, though that’s an odd rumor to mate with the claims of a particularly…

    I’ve been pretty much 50/50 about smartwatches until I saw this Star Trek: The Next Generation watch face. Now I am all “make it so”. Android Wear smartwatches were always going to be open to customised and modified faces, just as Android devices have different loaders and themes, and this Star Trek: The Next Generation face is must for any Star Trek fan. The touchscreen UI found on this face came from Star Trek back before Patrick Stewart was a social media hit. Heck it was before social media was really a thing and smartwatches were still a mere fantasy. But, as with all…

    Even around this house, these things are weird. Like every kind of object in the world, there are collectors for thimbles. Of course, that crowd is going to create new collectibles for their own delight. If you asked me, I would have denied it, but I guess it makes a kind of sense that someone would create sci fi thimbles. There's no year on the Dalek thimble. My guess would be the late 70s when the show was seeing a tremendous surge of interest thanks to Tom Baker's portrayal. The thimble is genuine ceramic, with a little gold trim on it. I could see it being a cherished little thing for…

    Bill Wyman was the bassist for the Rolling Stones, but found time for a solo effort. Here's a rare 16mm kinescope that a friend of mine just transferred ro video. It's a "Live" (lip-synched) performance of his song "Monkey Grip Glue". I don't know anything more about the clips, except that it looks like it's from a "Top Of The Pops" style show. Not only is this a different version of the clip that has been around on YouTube, but the color is unusually good considering the age of the film, and that color kinescoping didn't usually work all that well.

It doesn't do maps or email, nor will it play fancy games or allow me to Tweet. But the battery should last a couple of weeks, and it turns out that I can still text at a reasonable pace using…

    I’ve recently gotten my greasy hands on a Sphero 2.0 remote controlled robotic toy. Did it deliver the giggles promised in the advertisements? Overview The Sphero 2.0 is the latest evolution of the Sphero toy. Inherently comical, the tennis ball sized toy created a lot of buzz on the Internet when its first edition came out. Made possible mostly by the fact that they can sell it without a remote control since it requires a tablet or smartphone to control it which helped keep the costs down. The range if the original Sphero was limited at 50ft and the speed 3ft second, it did glow in…

Flare Pans, which use FIN-X technology are the work of Oxford engineering professor Thomas Povey and his team of masters students. They claim that their pots will reduce the amount of energy required to reach temperature parity by 44%. These more efficient pots unfortunately come with pretty hefty price tags.

On top of that, it also includes a TV-B-Gone-esque TV killer. Mix all of that together with flashing colors, phaser and Enterprise sound effects and vibration feedback – and you have a remote that is probably a lot more interesting than the stuff it controls.

    To the growing contingent of Game of Thrones fans who are concerned that he might not make it to the end of his series, George R. R. Martin has two words to say – and one of them isn’t pretty. But are the worried fans really that far out of line? All men, as the saying goes, must die (or Valar Morghulis if you prefer). Martin is a husky man in his mid-sixties, which makes him a prime candidate for heart attack and stroke. He has been well-compensated for the many thousands of hours that he has no doubt spent writing the series, and many more hours have been collectively spent…

As a high school teacher, yours truly deals with chalkboards on a daily basis – for up to three or four hours a day. In the classroom, I will take a well-made chalkboard over a dry-erase board or projector any day, but not in my house. The merits of the chalkboard are many: chalk is cheap, you can see how much of it is left, chalkboards work when the power is out, they don’t distract…

    Ritot is a new smartwatch that uses a pico-projector to project images on your hand. The team behind Ritot launched an IndieGogo crowdfunding campaign and managed to quickly raise the $50,000 they wanted. In fact, as of today they already raised over $170,000 (and there are 38 days left on this campaign). This is a great concept, but I have doubts whether it is actually practical. Will they indeed fit a pico-projector in such a tiny bracelet? Will the battery enough power to actually be usable? On one hand the projection distance is very small, and so it can be bright even with a low power. I…

These materials, the same materials used to make some rewrite-able DVD discs, may enable ultra-low-power (non-volatile) full-color displays with a much faster refresh rate compared to E Ink displays.The researcher use small jolt of power to change the crystal structure of the material, which changes the way light bends when it hit it, and so it changes the color of the material.

    22 Jul 2014 | 7:58 am
    Here we have a new victim of Microsoft’s recently announced paring of jobs. We are talking about Nokia MixRadio and it seems that the stand-alone music streamer will still be found on Windows Phone handsets.

The executive has been meeting with several potential investors in the U.S., Europe and Asia and we like the idea. As you remember, back in 2011 when it was released, the service was called Nokia Music. Nokia made the…

    Do you know that Jolla’s smartphone will soon reach the Indian market in partnership with Snapdeal? This is not a rumor but an official confirmation of what is going to happen. The company launched its own smartphone running the Sailfish OS, an open source OS based on MeeGo and although it cannot necessarily be called a success, things don’t look at all bad either. Other than its button-less design and gesture-based UI, Sailfish also gives you the chance to run Android apps on it, so those who have bought it were not at all disappointed.
