Shaving Helmet turns a head bald, quickly

by Mark R

When I saw this picture of the shaving helmet, I couldn’t help but think of the beginning of Full Metal Jacket which showed the several men getting their head shaved for the army. All I could think of was how easy it would be for multiple head shavings with this shaving helmet. It can actually turn a head with some hair into a cue ball in about 20 seconds, without …

Now there is a way to lift fingerprints off fabric

by Mark R

I think that we all know that most of the technology that we see on that CSI show is more advanced than actual forensic science or, in some cases, just plain non-existent. However, some researchers in Scotland have just discovered some new techniques that could crack a case on the next episode of CSI: Whatever city we’re in. The technique involves getting fingerprints off of clothes. It involves vacuum metal …

Esper Dominoes re-defines the domino effect

by Mark R

It seems like we as human beings just have to put technology in things that don’t require it. Case in point: Dominoes. I believe that Dominoes are one of the oldest games in the world, and these particular stones (I believe that is the term for individual dominoes) can be adjusted for different values. All you have to do is shake it one way to increase the value from 1 …

Black Pyramids could harness solar energy in the UAE

by Mark R

Did you ever wonder why the Egyptians built the pyramids? It wasn’t because the desert was too boring, but they were tombs for the pharaohs. In the case of this particular concept design known as Lunar Cubit, these pyramids could be built for the purposes of solar energy. Lunar Cubit is the winning entry in Land Art Generator Initative, a contest in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) made for designing …

iCar has discovered the secret of flight: It’s the wheels

by Mark R

I always love to report on flying cars as much as I can. This one, which is called the iCar, doesn’t need any wings or magic to fly but uses specially designed wheels. Apparently round spinning surfaces can create lift, which is called the Magnus Effect. The iCar takes advantage of the Magnus Effect to turn its wheels into wings. On the ground, the iCar is a one seater sports …

BMW creates ball-bearing boot travel suits

by Mark R

You remember when we discussed that car of 2100 that we talked about that was designed by a former BMW writer? Well, as it turns out, it looks like BMW is imagining some other type of future where the single human is the primary form of transportation. Apparently, the future is like that of Rollerball, but without the bloodsport. Everyone is rollerblading, but their boots have these ball-bearing soles that …

Find-My-Car insures that you never forget where you park your car

by Mark R

Did I tell you that I lost my rental car at the Caesar’s Palace parking garage during CES 2011 in Las Vegas? Of course I didn’t. I was way too embarrassed to put it in print. Of course, if the garage had the Park Assist System, there would be a series of high-resolution digital cameras that can track a car by a license plate number. Then it would have scanned …

The Affinity Chair can turn invisible

by Mark R

This is the Affinity Chair from designer Ben Alun-Jones, and it is a chair that can turn invisible. Actually, it is a chair that is already invisible and can turn visible when needed, seriously. The Affinity Chair is made of some clear acrylic that uses the mirror film that is seen to tint car windows. If someone approaches, there is an ultrasonic sensor that kicks into gear, then a pulsating …
