One of the most popular characters in all of comic book history is the mysterious Rorschach from the Watchmen graphic novel series by writer Alan Moore.

In the comic, it is explained that the mask is made of a cloth that is heat and pressure sensitive. Think of it as black and white Hypercolor from the eighties.

It was a special effect in the movies, but apparently the transforming inkblot face is possible by using some type of special paint. There is a video after the jump if you want to check it out for yourself.

The Auto Finder – Stop the wandering

I’ll never forget the time I lost my car. After an hour of searching, I came to the realization that it really was stolen and called the police, it took a phone call to my husband to be reminded that I had HIS car.

If only I had the Auto-Finder, a new safety product that uses a patented micro antenna system that is very different from GPS. The new Fynder™ platform can get you to your car much more easily because it doesnt require access to satellite signals and it doesnt even need you to enter your location each time you park your car.

British student invents a solar-powered refrigerator

In Namibia, Miss Emily Cummins is known as “The Fridge Lady”. This is because she invented a solar-powered refrigerator that is can help many poverty-stricken Africans.

The solar-powered refrigerator works with two cylinders, one inside the other. The inner cylinder is metal while the outer one is wood or plastic. In between these two cylinders is either sand or soil, which can be soaked with water. The sun’s rays heat the wet material, and as the water evaporates, the heat is removed from the inner cylinder. This keeps the fridge at a cool six degrees Celsius.
