Made of polypropylene. Steel wires. A retractable rubber handle. You’ll think feral animals are the kind of beasts on whom this Supercollar will be imposed on. Not quite, as it’s meant for the average mutt you consider a best friend aside from the person you share innermost secrets to. Strange comparisons aside, this Supercollar is something you should know about.
This guy named Bill Brown just rendered a hundred cute camera illustrations using Adobe Illustrator. Viewing the gallery on the website he set up should be a blast for cam enthusiasts (hey, that rhymed!). Bill Brown doesn’t mind random people actually toying with his work so long as he’s given credit. While his motivations are unclear, Bill set out to visually chronicle several species of camera together with their attachments. It’s a fun display worth a few moment’s perusal.
Long story short, this new immersive display from Crescent seeks to eradicate the invisible wall separating gamers from their diversion. That’s pretty basic, as the technology for this dates back at least (by our estimates) 20 years. Of course, its latest incarnation as the Immersive Digital Entertainment headgear is quite an attraction. The event pictured below is the 3D & Virtual Reality Exhibition.
Hardly a year after the cassette playing Walkman was finally consigned to oblivion, news has broken out the same fate will be shared by the MiniDisc. In case the MiniDisc never made a difference in your life, don’t fret. Since it’s debut in the early 90s the MiniDisc has only managed to sell 22 million of its kind. That’s a meager sum by Sony’s standards.
It’s called the CATRA System and instead of being tested in a lab, it’s already been embraced by medical professionals to detect cataracts. Cataracts are ugly and have reduced countless human beings’ quality of life. The great thing about the CATRA System is it’s available for all iPhone generations. Oh iPhone, where would modern medicine be without you? The next step here would be to make it universal to more smartphones, as the CATRA System could do a world of good to people across the globe.
Cape Canaveral, 11:29 am. A sizable congregation of onlookers were transfixed by the poetic ascension of the last manned shuttle flight. Half an hour short of most employee’s lunch breaks yesterday, the space shuttle Atlantis began its mission to deliver supplies to the ISS. After this, the end of the beginning is final.
Seen below is the BioLite, an exciting new cooking appliance being marketed to campers and rural communities. There are actually two variants of the BioLite, the CampStove and HomeStove. Both are fueled by a moderate amount of natural residue—wood, dung, or husks—which creates enough power to juice a cellphone.
The awful news is they come in two variants: 5 and 6 dpi. A creation by a Belarusian designer, the pixelated sunglasses look retro for their conspicuous lack of ergonomics. This means they probably won’t match most outfits today and wearing these compels you to dig up old clothes in your neighbor’s closet.
Our consumer society shares a special relationship with germs. The invisible microorganisms are the arch-villain for many a product, be it bathing soap to hand sanitizers. Somehow, germs are pure evil—and they are. But this is too much of a blanket statement. As a recent article here at Geeky Gadgets pointed out, bacteria actually help strengthen our immune systems over time. But is anyone listening?
Sure, the Japanese just love consumer items; the cuter the packaging the better. But this newfangled cooling gel borders on the utterly strange. Cooling gel seems to be a growing trend in Japan, especially for the male demographic. It’s geeky as hell for sure, ut does anyone wonder about the chemicals they’re exposing themselves to?
What’s that? Soviet space shuttles were supposed t deliver nuclear missiles? This from an ISS veteran and cosmonaut who shares the straight dope on the late USSR’s impressive shuttle effort, the Buran. Cursory research indicates that the Buran was tested once in 1988 and was far more advanced than some Western observers were willing to admit. For starters, it was completely unmanned and managed to orbit the Earth twice before a flawless landing. But that’s not all.
In case you missed the news, Tumblr is one the largest free blogging platforms a round. So huge, in fact, it produces enough content to rival more established platforms like WordPress. Small wonder then that corporations are hopping aboard to make their brand more visible. But amid all the hoopla, General Electric has produced a special log-type exhibit of all its hardware. Judging by the below, the pictures are impressive.
