Jet Hitter floats the ball before you hit it

by Mark R

I’m sure some of you remember Tee-ball from grade school, but this Jet Hitter from Japan’s Meiji University takes Tee-ball to the next level, all the way up to the big leagues. Meiji U teamed up with Sapporo-based MR Corp to make a machine that can hold a ball on air to create a hovering ball that a heavy hitter can hit very well. It is definitely baseball of the …

Cloaks of Invisiblity are now a reality

by Mark R

Okay, before you get too excited about getting some magic invisibility cloak like Harry Potter, you should know that so far, this technology has only made one thing invisible: a bump on a gold bar. Yes, it is a bump that is only 0.00004 inches high and 0.0005 inch across, which you probably wouldn’t see in the first place, as it can only be seen with a magnifying glass. Still, …

Legend of the Sikker

by Mark R

I never did use a Baby Monitor in my house, but if I did, I would definitely want to use the Sikker. The Sikker isn’t like the ones that are essentially over-priced walkie-talkies. At least, that’s what they were several years ago. I’m sure that mobile technology has improved since then. Anyway, what makes the Sikker different from other baby monitors is that it comes in the form of two …

Laptop doubles as its own carrying case

by Ally

Instead of buying a case to carry your laptop, you could have a laptop that doubles as a case.  This concept would allow for you to carry around just a little less and maybe even spend a tiny bit less money.  Sure, some people carry around too much gear and need the bag, but in those cases when you need a bag, the handle could also be used in other …

Bloom Light unfolds for more luminescence

by Mark R

It’s always nice to see when technology takes a cue from nature. In this case, the Bloom Light. The Bloom Light is the creation of Patrick Jouin. It is merely a concept for now, but it could very easily be something that I would put in my reading room. This would be assuming that I have a reading room, which I do not. As you can see, it is something …

Make mowing fun with this Lawn Mower Scooter

by Mark R

If there is one thing that I hate, it is lawn mowing. Perhaps I should get one of those remote control lawnmowers, like the GOAT. I know that can’t afford a riding mower, and don’t have that much of a lawn to use it with. What I wouldn’t give to have this riding scooter. The Lawn Mower Scooter is designed by Vicky Petihovski, and I believe that it is a …

Mr. Klein Washing Machine reuses water

by Ally

For those of you that are big clean freaks, you might not entirely like this concept.  I’m not even obsessive about germs and dirt, but this still doesn’t entirely sit well with me.  Most washing machines wash your clothing and then send the dirty water down the drain.  As far as the green aspect goes, that’s a huge waste of water and therefore a bit of a bad thing.  This …

GM working on new enhanced vision systems

by Mark R

Research and Development at General Motors, in cooperation with several universities, is developing a way of using augmented reality in automobiles. This isn’t the same type of augmented reality used in scavenger hunts, but it is able to gather data from vehicle sensors and cameras to project images generated by compact ultraviolet lasers right on the surface of the windshield itself. Here is a link to a video where you …
