Aston Martin makes some beautiful cars, and I have to say that I really like the look of this concept DBC. The low stance and curved lines are reminiscent of a McLaren, and it looks very fast and agile.
I’m more interested about 3D printers than ink printers these days, but I couldn’t pass up sharing the Stack printer with you. It’s a concept by industrial designer Mugi Yamamoto that’s meant to save space and gives you a better idea of how much work it has done.
Rechargeable batteries are pretty eco-friendly in the sense that you can recharge them and use them, again and again and again, until they stop holding a charge. However, most battery chargers are bulky and are a pain to carry around, especially if you’re traveling or need to use it on the go.
If you paid even the slightest bit of attention during science class, then you know better than to drink seawater. Despite how inviting it may seem (“hey, it’s still water after all!”), seawater causes severe dehydration so you’re better off thirsty than taking a drink of it.
I live in a country where rice is a staple in almost all of our meals. However, in many other countries, rice is just a side dish that’s prepared once every few months.
Cooking rice is like boiling water for most of us; but if you don’t have the time to figure out how to cook rice, then these Rice Packs are definitely what you need.
The global human population is booming. Some studies predict that we’ll soon run out of resources (read: food) to feed everyone as this growth continues.
One of the proposed solutions? Breed insects and use them as an alternate protein source.
Mosquitoes suck. They’re hard to kill (especially if you have bad hand-to-eye coordination) and they can infect us humans with potentially life-threatening diseases.
A project called Kite was launched recently on Indiegogo, which is essentially a patch that makes people “invisible” from mosquitoes.
Receiving transmission. Here’s our intel: an independent developer called Reactive Studios is working on a top secret game for iOS devices. It’s called Codename Cygnus, an interactive drama where you play a spy. Here’s where it gets interesting: the game plays like old drama radio shows, except you can talk to it.
I recently bought one of those elongated spoons because I got tired of ending up with sticky hands all the time after getting the last few spoonfuls of peanut butter from the jar.
I’m sure many of you have a problem with the same thing.
People lie to their doctors all the time, even though it’s for their own good. There’s a new invention in the works that makes it impossible to deny you had that extra slab of steak or that you smoked a couple of cigarettes: tooth sensors.
There aren’t that many maglev trains in operation yet (one is currently operating in Shanghai, China and another is in Japan). There have been skytrains and monorails before, but this is the world’s first magnetically levitating system of mass transit, which will be built in Tel Aviv, Israel.
Would you drink your sweat? Obviously, we’d all choose to drink water if we had a choice. But if there’s no clean water, would you drink sweat instead?
The Sweat Machine was created by engineer Andreas Hammar upon the request of Unicef.
The streets are often empty in the dead of night, but they’re all still well-lit anyway. That makes sense, because I’d want it to be well-lit in case I find myself walking home in the wee hours of the morning.
We’ve already seen a couple of 3D printed headphones, but they were mostly proofs of concept, not for daily use. Designer Julian Goulding hopes to incorporate the revolutionary technology into consumer-grade earphones with his Accord concept.
These days, even a cheap phone has the ability to record sights and sounds using its camera. But that’s just two of our many senses. With her concept for an “odor camera”, designer Amy Radcliffe hopes that she can encourage electronics makers to make devices that can record scent.
