In the future, there could be moving train stations

by Mark R

If there is one thing that can make trains more efficient, it is less stops. Unfortunately, people have to get on and off the train, but what if the stations themselves were moving, and all the train would have to do is slow down in order to board and unboard? You can watch a video of how it would work after the jump. It is computer-generated, but I would imagine …

New Batmobile design is earth-friendly, designed by a legend

by Mark R

We have seen a lot of Batmobiles driven by the caped crusader in the movies, television, and comic books. Most of them have interesting gadgets, and many are not grounded in reality. Think about the Batmobile that drove up the wall in Batman Forever. Some people don’t like the Humvee look in the latest Batman films, and Gordon Murray, legendary Formula One car designer, created this one. As far as …

Orange UK’s new T-shirts can power your mobile devices, with sound!

by Mark R

In case you are wondering, these are not mouse pads that these people have on their T-shirts. This is Orange UKs new technology, and it could be what you need to charge your mobile device. It does so using piezoelectrics with the absorption of vibration from sound. I going out on a limb here and guess that the white pads on the belly are sound sponges. I would also imagine …

Concept Rotary Powered Cellular Phone

by Mark R

When I was growing up, my family was one of the first to still have a rotary phone. I remember having friends over, and some of them had never even seen a rotary phone before. You can imagine my embarrassment, as we were always slow to adapt to new technology. I’m sure if my family got cell phones back then, we would have had something like this. Designed my Richard …

We have a hoverbike!

by Mark R

I think that Hollywood has taught us that in the future, everything that is has wheels will be hovering. Think of any episode of The Jetsons, or the Back to the Future II hoverboards. An Australian inventor named Chris Malloy has figured out how to build a hoverbike, using nothing but parts from motorcycles. These propellers are powered by a 1,170-cc engine for 107 horsepower, with a 231-pound thrust-to-weight ratio. …

Interactive Story Telling Mirror

by Mark R

It seems like I am always reporting on how the mirrors of the future will be touch-interactive. This Through the Looking Glass mirror takes it one step further. Designed by Romy van den Broek, this mirror allows children to experience an interactive fairy tale. If you have ever seen one of those interactive storybook iPad apps, then I am guessing that the experience is going to be quite similar. Right …

Replicating Reality at the E3 2011: I feel dizzy

by Mark R

Just to let you know, that guy sitting in the driver’s seat isn’t me, but I did get to go after him. Man, I am glad that I did. This was the Fourth Dimensions Displays (ForthDD) booth at E3, and it took me for a ride. I would say literally for a ride, but it was only virtually. In my little Matrix, I was a race car driver. My viewer …

Natura helps save the environment even as you pee

by Edwin

Guys, what do you normally do when you go to the loo to relieve yourself? Normally, most guys do one or the other – which is to look ahead or stare straight down, no one really turns to the left or right just to check out how your neighbor is doing, size-wise or otherwise. If you are the type who stares down, then have you noticed just how urinals have …
