Children can come up with some very weird-awesome ideas. Those ideas do make amazing toys, but inventions are a totally different game. British designer and inventor Dominic Wilcox started the Inventors! project to convert ideas of children into real products.
Tony might have a killer armor, but I’m willing to bet he’d feel some pain once we get 3-D printing in order and start churning out exoskeletons. Once we do get that in order and find a power source (like the arc reactor) we’ll all be superhumans.
We love the idea and thought that went into creating these e-Ink shoes. The Volvorii Timeless shoes show quite an interesting idea and design. The exterior of the shoes is an e-ink display that works with a Bluetooth module to connect with your smartphone, and to allow customization of the design/patterns on the body.
Let’s Pizza is a vending machine that will not just sell you a pizza, but it will cook a pizza all fresh for your pleasure. You place your order and the machine starts right with the basics – mixing flour and water, ultimately cooking it and delivering the pizza in a few minutes.
It’s mind boggling to imagine that the email is old, 44 years old. Computer engineer Ray Tomlinson sent the very first email in the year 1971. It’s difficult to say if Tomlinson realized the importance of the historic event he was presiding over, but he doesn’t quite remember what the email was about. In such a case, I think it is best to assume that it was a fart joke, because that’s what emails are for.
You may not care about technology, and you may not even know it yet, but you do totally love the USB Type-C. The new iteration of the bus has all the advantages of the classic USB, and removes most of the complaints leveled against the USB. The list of the new offerings is huge, and we’re going to run by it with quick information to highlight the capabilities of the new standard.
This offering from Crazy Case is exactly what you could have asked to get your nerd cells ticking. Haters might call it impractical, but you know it is awesome, especially when you get to see it in action. The DMC-12 has amazing detail with lights and wires that glow when you get a call or notifications.
You could have your very own band or orchestra at your beck and call, housed comfortably in an elegant handcrafted oak cabinet. The self-contained Hootenanny, apart from having a lovely name, also houses 17 musical instruments. Let’s go back a bit, Hootenanny… that’s a great word, and I’m going to try to sneak it into conversations all week. That, and bamboozled, because it’s cool.
Smartwatches are cool, although they rarely look as awesome as the ZenWatch. We like the ZenWatch because it is sleek, has the usual and useful features, and looks pretty darn good. Going to the gritty details and specifications, the watch has a slightly curved 1.63-inch 320×320 AMOLED display. It runs on a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, has Bluetooth 4.0, and 512 MB RAM.
A remote controlled, fully functional steam powered tank, now that’s the stuff Steampunk fiction is made of. The steam turret tank by Ian is based on a 1/16th scale Tamiya King Tiger die-cast model tank. Supplying steam to keep the tank in action is a 3.5″ diameter marine boiler. This miniature boiler is fully functional, and includes pressure gauges, safety valves, and a ceramic burner.
