Intellego UV-Sensing Wristband: Never Get Fried by the Sun Again

Intellego UV-Sensing Wristband: Never Get Fried by the Sun Again
Tanning can be dangerous, especially if you fall asleep on the beach while soaking in some rays. These UV-sensing wristbands will let you know when you’ve had too much sun. Once you’ve had your fill, they change colors to let you know when to cover up.

Rotundus GroundBot: Rolling Surveillance Robot from the Future

Rotundus GroundBot: Rolling Surveillance Robot from the Future
I don’t know why robotics experts haven’t thought of this before, but this tire-like surveillance robot is the way to go for mobile and autonomous operations. Even better since it looks like it’s right out of science fiction, from Terminator, The Prisoner or Fahrenheit 451.

Mutewatch: The Ultimate Minimal Watch

Mutewatch: The Ultimate Minimal Watch
This has to be one of the most minimal watches that I’ve ever seen, and it also has a vibrating alarm function, which is something that I’ve been wanting to see in a watch for a long time.

Ice Hotel Gets TRON Legacy Suite

Ice Hotel Gets TRON Legacy Suite
TRON: Legacy will be released next week, but if you can’t wait, you can try out the TRON: Legacy suite at the Ice Hotel in Sweden.

Husqvarna Demolition Robot: the Ultimate in Automated Destruction

Husqvarna Demolition Robot: the Ultimate in Automated Destruction
Destroying things is fun. Destroying things with robots is even cooler, especially with large robots that are basically used in construction and have a full-sized jackhammer on board. That’s the DXR 310 in a nutshell. I love how Husqvarna uses the words “compact” in the description of this robot, but I’m not sure what they’re comparing it to for size reference.

Looftlighter: Flame on Without a Flame on

Looftlighter: Flame on Without a Flame on
Instead of fire, or even sparks, the Looftlighter uses hot air – hot as in more than 1000°F – to light things up. The Looftlighter is named after its inventor, Richard Lighter. No wait: his real name is Richard Looft, a (former?) theater director who got tired of having his barbecued chicken taste like lighter fluid.

Green Algae-Based Batteries Show Tremendous Potential

Green Algae-Based Batteries Show Tremendous Potential
Almost every aspect of electronic devices have been vastly improved – or at least miniaturized – these days. Touchscreen displays are becoming common. Monitors and TVs are becoming larger, thinner and the overall quality of their displays are improving as well.

Xb Elegant Edition Casemod: the Xbox 360 Gets Boxy

Xb Elegant Edition Casemod: the Xbox 360 Gets Boxy
The guys over at the AcidMods forums recently spotted this dramatic redesign of the Xbox 360 and immediately speculated that it must be an act of clever Photoshoppery. And I’m happy to tell you, this puppy is for reals.

A Devastating Story: Industrial Robot Nearly Kills Swedish Factory Worker

A Devastating Story: Industrial Robot Nearly Kills Swedish Factory Worker
More pants-wetting robo-news here at technabob: A defective robot “generally used to lift heavy rocks” attacked and nearly killed a Swedish factory worker that was actually trying to repair the machine. According to The Local, the unnamed worker thought that he had cut off the machine’s power supply so he “approached the robot with no sense of trepidation.” Unfortunately, the robot suddenly sprang into action and grabbed the man’s head.

Glofab: Fiber Optic Lights That Don’t Suck

Glofab: Fiber Optic Lights That Don’t Suck
When I think of fiber optic lighting, all that comes to mind are those awful 1970s starburst lamps. So I was so thrilled when I came across these beautiful organic designs which use the same basic lighting technology that begat such ugliness in the first place.

The Pixelated Man

The Pixelated Man
At first glance, this sculpture might look like it’s made out of LEGO blocks, but it’s actually an intricate handcrafted work of art by Swedish sculptor Thomas Broomé. The artist’s Low Res Man was fabricated from thousands of precisely arranged 1cm see-through acrylic cubes, then painted to look like a real person when viewed from a great distance.

Lamp Thinks It’s a Speaker

Lamp Thinks It’s a Speaker
This may look like some sort of funky 2-way speaker perched on a tall stand, but it’s actually a floor lamp. The Lightspeaker Lamp from Sweden’s LYX Furniture and Light features a “tweeter” and “woofer” which reflect light instead of sound.
