Tag Heuer has launched a new mobile phone, Link. They haven’t spent much time working the interiors, because bling and beauty, as we all know, lies in the exterior. Link has a screen made of gorilla glass to make the touchscreen durable and resistant to falls, a body that can be steel, titanium or rose gold, and a covering of alligator skin. The phone runs on Android and costs $6700.
You can’t expect to catch a projectile shooting from a tank with a normal camera, even high-speed cameras would struggle to capture such an image. This video was captured using Photron, high definition camera shooting at 18000 fps. The tank in question is a Russian T-90 third generation tank shooting a 125mm shell.
It’s little things like these that make stuff interesting. You could let the power outlet be, or you could give it a personality. Personally, I’d go with mustaches, they almost give a life to sockets and cars.
Going by the stunning details on oil paintings by Johannes Wessmark, they could very well have been photographs.
It’s all just a matter of priorities and thoughts, and probably ambition which we guess this robot seriously lacks. It wants to be a human armpit. The robot delves into human armpits, emotions and the smells that go along with such feelings. Using a chemical called androstadienone, the robot mimics the same smell as in human sweat, showing off its response with the smell of fear. A more respectable way would have been to simply beep or light up an LED, but that’s just what we think.
Tango was faced with a problem where the kids in Britain didn’t quite enjoy drinking soda because of the difficulties involved in picking up the bottle, taking it to the lips and possibly even with using straw. To solve the problem Tango set 40 researchers to work, with the aim of creating a “new” soda delivery system. It is basically the Turbo Tango, an orange soda that comes in aerosol cans and sprays out as foam. Problem solved.
If you’ve got to make something, you got to make it strong and preferably out of concrete. These concrete building blocks to look cool, but they aren’t quite a match to the charm of the real, plastic Lego bricks. Still noteworthy, if only for the novelty. Cost $8.50.
I’d never thought of it, but apparently sitting on a subwoofer while it plays at full blast can be fun. And I just had very inappropriate visuals of things vibrating while someone sits on the woofer. Made by Ministry of Design, the chair has a fiberglass frame and a soft seating area. This thing would be a real blast for the ears and the bums.
The joy of music shows its best when you get to share it with someone. That’s all fine if you’re playing music through speakers, but things get a bit difficult if headphones or earbuds are in the action. It is at these moments that “Plug it in” headsets by designer Dorien van Heijst show their magic. Basically, the headphones have gold plated audio jacks where an additional headset can connect and share the music, without going through all weird motion of sharing the same headphones. Made from leather, porcelain and wood, the headphones have been designed to have rich sound.
Things would be remarkably easy if you could simply draw circuits and wires with a pen. That’s exactly what can possibly be done with this silver-inked rollerball pen. Developed by engineers Jennifer Lewis and Jennifer Bernhard at the University of Illinois, the ink of the pen is mostly silver, which can be used for circuits when dried, and allowing it to go through multiple bends and folds and still being functional. While this isn’t exactly a new idea, the handheld pen could significantly lower costs and make flexible and disposable circuits easier to create and use.
