Scarab: A self-driving, electric police pursuit vehicle

by Mark R

Once again, it would appear that science fiction has somehow turned into fact with the Scarab car. Basically, the Scarab is a car that is self-driven, like K.I.T.T. from Knight Rider. This self-driving car works a little different than the one from the TV show. In other words, there is no David Hasselhoff sitting behind the wheel to patrol the streets. The idea behind the Scarab is to to have …

Slip Watch makes life easier

by Ally

Every single time you want to check your watch to read the time, you have to twist your arm around just to read it.  Thankfully someone has finally had the common sense to create a watch that you don’t have to be a contortionist to read.  Sure, you could always turn your arm to read the time, but this is so much easier.

EQP2 Excursion is one light electric plane

by Mark R

Sometime, in the year 2013, when we have realized that that whole 2012 end-of-the-world thing was just another Y2K, we will (hopefully) see the EQP2 Excursion. The Excursion is a Light Sport Aircraft (LST) that has enough space for two people and baggage. You may note that it has two propellers on its tail, but what you don’t know is that is completely electrical. Yeah, there is no expensive jet …

Hypospray from Star Trek is real, but with lasers

by Mark R

Nothing I like reporting more than reporting on tech from science-fiction that becomes science fact. Especially when it comes to Star Trek, the original series. Sure the original series just looks bad if you watch it now, and we still haven’t got most of that technology. Sure, most of our cellular phones look like James T. Kirk’s communicator, but as far as hypodermics are concerned, there are still needles. Not …

Robot Fish could help steer fish schools

by Mark R

The other day, I was watching the news about the oil spill in the Gulf, and I had heard that a pelican had been saved. Apparently, the Pelican went in the spill to catch a fish, but a team managed to clean him off. My first reaction was: “Man, why did that pelican go into the oil-infested waters for that fish?” Yes, there are more fish in the sea, but …

AirSwing is a new way of scrolling through choices

by Mark R

My source seems to insist that this AirSwing from Toshiba is Minority Report technology, which always makes me want to write about it, honestly. I think I’ve probably referenced this film in more posts than any other science fiction film, and this includes Blade Runner. There are no special gloves like the ones that Tom Cruise wore at the beginning of Minority Report, but the AirSwing does use webcams to …

Cub Lamp makes wood shine

by Ally

This is one concept design that would probably baffle your guests if they happened to see it while the light was off.  When the light isn’t on it just looks like a big hunk of wood with a mysterious cord coming out of the back.  The true colors of the light aren’t revealed until you happen to flip it on.
