Bluetrek Carbon Bluetooth Headset is Made from Carbon Fiber

Bluetrek Carbon Bluetooth Headset is Made from Carbon Fiber
I am not a huge fan of Bluetooth headsets because I think wearing them outside of a car when you must have both hands free makes you look like a massive douche. If you are just walking in the mall wearing one, talking into thin-air, I think you deserve a kick in the scrotum.

But while Lee had to use a Wiimote and IR diodes (and a PC) for his hack, Jeremie Francone and Laurence Nigay of the Grenoble Informatics Laboratory were able to pull off the same trick on the iPhone 4 and the iPad 2 using only the front-facing cameras on the devices.

Building A Life-Sized AT-AT: Utter Craziness?
We’ve just started to see some powered exoskeletons, and they are still pretty clunky affairs. So how can we even think about starting to build a real AT-AT? That doesn’t seem to faze the Mike Koehler, the man behind AT-AT for America – a campaign to build a fully-functional full-size AT-AT.

Swarm Has the Perfect Accessory for the Heavy-Drinking Bike Rider

Swarm Has the Perfect Accessory for the Heavy-Drinking Bike Rider
There are two things that I have never really thought about putting together. Drinking adult beverages and riding a bike. I guess the need to pop the top off a frosty brew while on the trials or riding around a park is high enough that a new product is on Kickstarter to allow you to open a bottle without having to find a place to stash your bottle opener.

Maybe it’s because I have a horrible sweet-tooth, but for some reason, I’ve got candy on the brain today. Heck, even some gadgets are starting to look like candy to me. As a matter of fact, I thought I was looking at a digital camera, but all I see is a chocolate bar.
