This could be what 2014 is like

by Mark R

You should take a few minutes to watch this video by TAT. Honestly, I have never heard of TAT, but “TAT’s technology powers 470+ million devices, in more than 15 percent of all new phones in 2010 and 20 percent of all touch phones. TAT’s technology also powers DTVs, STBs, car clusters and tablets”. This video, which shows the future of touchscreen technology, shows us “a normal day in 2014″. …

Power Plug Concept Cover for little fingers

by Ally

The idea that your house could ever be completely childproof is a bit of a pipe dream.  Sure, you can make it a whole lot safer, but there are always things you never would have thought could cause an injury.  The idea is to keep those injuries minimal and try to make them happen as little as possible.  One area that hasn’t been taken care of is when a metal …

Toshiba’s ApriPoco

by Mark R

Toshiba has some interesting projects going on with televisions and computers, and this particular one is a robot that looks more like a side project, really. It is called the ApriPoco, and I’m not sure what the translates to. If you ask me, it sounds like Acapulco, which I’ve heard is a very nice place to go. Okay, I’m clearly getting off-topic. Anyway, this 8.4 inch tall robot is apparently …

Power going out is just a part of life.  Storms hit and power lines sometimes go down and it’s even worse if you’re living outside of town.  This rechargeable LED bulb may function as a normal bulb most of the time, but it has extra features that’ll keep you feeling safe and secure even during bad storms.

Carnegie Mellon making robotic snake

by Mark R

Nothing that I like more than robots, and we have reported on a lot of interesting ones. This one is under development at Carnegie Mellon’s Biorobotics Lab, and it bears a resemblance to the Omnitread. That was a snake-like robot with treads on it like a train, designed to slip into small places. This robot lacks the treads, but looks like it could creep into small places. In other words, …

Virtual Mirror for augmented reality cosmetics

by Mark R

We have reported on a lot of interesting tech that begins with the mirror, such as the interactive Magic Mirror. This system called EZFace uses both mirrors and augmented reality technology. EZFace is powered by IBM technology. Simply put, EZFace allows customers to see what makeup looks like, without having to try it on for themselves. It begins when a customer has their picture taken in a virtual mirror, which …

X-Frame folding vehicle

by Mark R

Some of you might remember the end of the Jetsons title sequence. After George dropped off his family, he went to work and his flying car folded up into a briefcase. There’s some technology that would save us a lot of parking space, wouldn’t it? Unfortunately, this X-Frame folding vehicle is not at that level, but it does have some of the folding thing down. I couldn’t find a good …

Power Laces, as seen in Back to the Future II

by Mark R

I think we all know that Back to the Future II has inspired much technology that is yet to become real by the year 2015. That was the year that Marty and Doc traveled to at the beginning of the film, for those that don’t remember it. Granted, we are closer to a hoverboard than we were before, and someone is working on “Power Laces”. Hopefully, you remember the scene …
