iGo Power Smart Wall

by Mark R

I had a chance to visit iGo’s meeting room at CES last week, and they promised me a product that could help me get rid of the “Vampire Power”.

This is the Vampire Power that they were talking …

They have launched a series of products devoted to this need, and one of them is the mCube Mini, which is the World’s Smallest …

Just how green is the Canon X Mark I calculator? Well, for starters, it looks very Apple-sque, and is made up from recycled PowerShot lenses – at least where the glass elements are concerned. At $30 a pop, this makes for a very expensive calculator compared to those Made-in-China staples that tend to break down when you need it the most. Well you can tell that plenty of love has …

The Solar Powered Dragonfly Kit

Lawn ornaments are still found in a great deal of yards, yet slowly they’re changing.  It used to be you could watch them change as soon as there was a strong breeze.  However, instead of these dragonflies flapping their wings with the wind, they are powered by the sun.  Thankfully, they do still keep their power source eco-friendly, but in a slightly more hi-tech way.

Implantable solar cells the way of the future

by Edwin

solar-biodevice

Solar energy seems to be the way to go regardless of where you stay (we’re talking about populated areas and not some of those tribal peoples who live in extreme cold conditions, introduced to us through National Geographic), as it is free, environmentally friendly and capable of keeping your devices juiced up no matter what, albeit requiring far longer than usual compared to a regular power outlet. There is a …
