What if all solid objects could adapt their forms to outside stimuli? Imaging having a car wreck where both automobiles adapt their shape upon impact in order to cause less damage. Or imagine uniforms for soldiers, police, and firemen that modified their structure when rubble, bullets, or fire threatened the wearer. It’s an interesting concept […]
Lighting is essential to our mood and body rhythms. So why not have a little fun with it?

Who said you can’t relive the past? With the rise in throw-back technology, we’ve gotten pretty close to bringing back all the wonderful, clunky, unreliable, comforting tech pieces of yesteryear. I enjoyed seeing the cassette tape cases showing up on iPhones over the past year or so, but this Nokia 3310 iPhone skin really takes […]
This 11 second video of a cat paw unlocking the new iPhone 5s is insanely cute. My mind said “No” but my heart said “Yes”. I fell in love with both the kitty and the phone. Apparently the new iPhone can be programmed to respond to a cat paw with a special “paw recognition”. Thanks […]
Despite recent complaints of Google Glass being too expensive, rude, and likely to inspire mistrust, one man decided to take a leap of faith and make a pair for himself. And he saved around $1500 in the process. Whether you call it faking it or just being smart, this guy may have taken DIY science […]
This is probably the most educated form of social media I’ve come across. It’s a sort of Instagram for medical professionals. Known as Figure 1, the app invites doctors to take pictures of ailments and fellow doctors can give feedback and suggestions on their post. This app isn’t for casual socializing and flirting like most […]
In the digital world, we place an inordinate emphasis on the broader social implications of Likes, Shares, “bookmarks” and “favourites” – our digital book and catalogue collection. Fish: A Tap Essay is a simple app by Robin Sloan which reminds us of what it means to truly love something — books, music, film, images and […]
Do you remember the early days of the Worldwide Web? I remember hearing about it and imagining a huge spiderweb that somehow connected the entire earth. Now, a generation that has grown up with the web as a staple of modern life can go back to the very beginning.
With this possible new advance in space technology, anyone can save up the money to take a trip to the moon. This lunar lander design by Golden Spike Company could put ordinary, non-astronaut people on the moon as early as 2020. But you’d better start saving now. The price per seat is being projected at $500 million. Now […]
With all the recent hype surrounding Google Glass, it’s interesting to take a look at what this new augmented reality technology development might mean for the porn industry. With the first porn app already created and then banned, it’s obvious that new technology also means new ways to access it. As a result of the […]
This one robot is out to top all other robots. Not only will he pour you a beer, but the little guy tries to anticipate if you’re about to move your glass so the beer doesn’t end up soaking your jeans. Thanks to the brains at Cornell’s Personal Robotics Lab, the robot has been primed to […]
As tedious as it is to type long messages proficiently on an iPhone, it’s no wonder YouTube user Sonitdac created a dream iPhone 6 concept with a large, light-projected keyboard. The phone would be able to project a full sized mac keyboard onto any surface allowing users to type more quickly with their phones. Your iPhone […]
‘I’m fine to drive’. Yeah, we’ve all hear that one before. The unfortunate reality about being drunk is that you tend to have impaired judgement, which means you’re likely to make a poor call when it comes to knowing if you’re safe to drive or not. But thanks to the first ever smartphone breathalyzer, you can check your BAC with the same accuracy of a police breathalyzer.
Thanks to the magic of modern technology, my childhood favorite pastime, Tetris, just got a cool new twist. I remember the rush of navigating the falling blocks with the arrow keys of my Gameboy. I remember twisting the game this way and that as if the game might have a sense of motion and follow […]
