Geek store Cognitive Surplus attracts chemistry buffs with a variety of glassware that are embossed with the molecular structure of the molecule(s) in the drink suited to each glass. There’s a glass for water, coffee, beer, wine and whiskey.
Molecular modeling kits usually use sticks to connect models of atoms. Veritasium creator Derek Mueller came up with a beginner kit that’s more realistic, intuitive and easier to use. He calls it Snatoms.
Snatoms consists of plastic atomic models embedded with spherical neodymium magnets.
It appears that everyone is getting into the Olympic spirit, including scientific geeks at the Royal Society of Chemistry, IBM Research-Zurich and the University of Warwick. Working together, the team of scientists and researchers have created an imaged the smallest possible five-ring structure.
Aaron Alai made sure that prospective employers – and lovers – will remember him. They’ll remember him as the nerd with the business card that lights up.
Touching two points on the card activates the small LED on the lower right of the card.
Here’s an innovative way to shed some light on your drab old living quarters.
Product designer Maarten DeCeulaer’s Nomad Light Molecules can be interconnected to create completely new organic shapes on demand.
Each individual sphere of light can operate independently for up to 4 hours on a single charge.
