Supercomputers to explore nuclear energy

Mon, 25 Jan 2010 14:08:27 GMT

(image) Ever wanted to see a nuclear reactor core in action? A new computer algorithm developed by scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory allows researchers to view nuclear fission in much finer detail than ever before. A team of nuclear engineers and computer researchers at Argonne National Laboratory are in the process of developing the neutron transport code UNIC, which enables scientists for the first time to obtain a highly detailed description of a nuclear reactor core........

Weather Alarm Clock Photo Frame – triple function combo keeps you dry, happy and on time

Mon, 28 Sep 2009 04:17:05 GMT

(image) The Weather Alarm Clock Photo Frame crams a lot into a mini desktop sized package. You’ve got yourself an indoor outdoor weather temp station thingy, a 16MB digital photo frame and an alarm clock. Wake up, check the weather, remember the wife and pop down for breakfast in the seedy motel dining room. Perfect. .........

Mon, 28 Sep 2009 03:55:48 GMT

(image) Simple to use, the patient simply insert a test strip into the meter and take their test as usual. The Contour gives the test results on the easy to read color OLED display and logs it for later use. Able to hold up to 2,000 test results, the devices is a great way to track blood glucose patterns which can be a boon to both doctors and patients.

Infrared Nighttime Camera

Fri, 01 May 2009 02:24:10 GMT

(image) Camouflaged, waterproof, silent and heat sensing, this Infrared Nighttime Camera grabs 3 megapixel stills and/or video and stores them onto an integrated 1 GB SD card. We’re talking 2800 photos or 500+ 10 second video clips. The rechargeable battery lasts for around 14 days and charges up in 2 hours, and the whole thing hooks up to a USB port to allow downloading onto your computer. A great way to capture scavengers, ne’er do wells and the next door neighbour stealing your hubcaps. .........



All in one electric hub powers up your old bicycle

Thu, 05 Mar 2009 03:27:40 GMT

(image) The boffins at MIT are working on an all-in-one electric wheel hub called the GreenWheel which when retrofitted to old bicycles converts them to electric power. There are plenty of Chinese electric wheels on the market, but this one goes a stage further by folding all the technology, including batteries, into the single hub, making it easier to install and use. The development prototypes still need to have the wheel spokes rejigged, but they’re working on an alternative so it can become more DIY friendly. What’s more, the single wheel should be able to power the .........

Fri, 27 Feb 2009 04:26:01 GMT

(image) Rugged PC makers, Trimble, have just released another go-anywhere PC. The Yuma is an outdoor, high reliability portable tablet PC designed for the more rugged and outdoorsy type jobs or for people who are a little more clumsy than most. The Yuma can survive most types of punishment. It has an ingress protection rating of 67, so it’s pretty much dust and waterproof and it can handle temperatures from -30C to .........



Is a paperless postal service possible?

Wed, 18 Feb 2009 20:17:44 GMT

(image) Is this what the postal service of the future could look like? If so, frankly, my mind is blown. Thanks to Zumbox, Businesses and organizations can now send mail for free - without the use of paper. .........



Toronto Considers the Wireless Canada Program

Wed, 18 Feb 2009 10:53:26 GMT

(image) As the web and web-based applications continue to garner greater attention in our lives, the city is looking at ways to make broadband access more universal.

A current proposal making its way through city hall is offering to place one thousand internet-ready, no-cost computers in public venues across the city. Better yet, as part of the plan, the city will actually generate a profit. Take a deep .........



Just Another Bugatti?

Tue, 23 Dec 2008 02:56:27 GMT

(image) Sometimes it seems that every high-end classic car auction has to have a Bugatti on the block. Considering that the French marque was a low-volume sports/racing machine, one wonders how so many survived. (On the other hand, would you have kicked Ava Gardner out of bed?) So let's show due respect to this 1937 Bugatti 57SC Atalante Coupe, which will be auctioned by RM in Arizona Jan 17, 2009 with preview Jan 16. Finished in its early 60s restoration colours of Patrol Cream and Lemon Oxide, it is one .........



Adjustable surge strip to fit your adapters

Tue, 12 Feb 2008 23:41:53 GMT

(image) If you have a lot of bulky adapters, a single power strip is usually not enough, even if it has a sufficient number of sockets. They vie for space, and something usually has to go. This clever yet simple idea called Socket Sense from Ideative solves this problem by making the sockets adjustable and set at an angle so that you can stack your adapters for a perfect fit (though there may, of course, be exceptions if you''ve got one that''s truly ginormous). The surge strip with 6-foot power cord sells for $40 at .........



Baby Quasar: Electronic elixir?

Thu, 24 Jan 2008 01:08:07 GMT

(image) Suckers for a quick-fix, we''ve featured a number of home healing, anti-aging products (Zeno, Marvel Mini, NuFace, etc.) however, another electronic elixir has made a striking debut. Baby Quasar uses Red and Amber light, both known to have powerful anti-inflammatory properties and promote Fibroblasts to increase the body''s production of collagen (the cheek and lip plumping stuff we lose as we age). .........

VoIP in the Works for the iPhone and iPod Touch

Thu, 13 Dec 2007 03:38:45 GMT

(image) Here's a double-whammy for Apple's buzz-generating smartphone and limited-functionality PDA. I'm not really sure how it works, but some hackers have managed to make the iPod Touch run some communications protocol called SIP. Apparently getting SIP to run on a device makes VoIP possible, and apparently this iPod Touch procedure is doable on the iPhone. This is honestly beyond the limits of my comprehension, as some low-level coding and modifications are necessary. Interested parties may check out the TUAW post on the subject. And to anyone who can explain things in layman's .........

Forget Lasik, Get Eye Power!

Mon, 10 Dec 2007 04:21:19 GMT

(image) This reminds me of a do-it-yourself lasik kit I saw as a gag once. However, given this is coming from Japan, and I can't read Japanese, I have no idea if this Eye Power thing is real. The theory goes, you stare into this machine for 10 minutes and "ultrasonic technology" restores your myopic, near-sighted self to perfect 20/20 .........

FireWire reader

Wed, 05 Sep 2007 03:08:07 GMT

(image) Since the arrival of USB 2.0, FireWire, as a transfer medium, has lost some of its luster. The introduction of FireWire 800 helped its cause a bit, but only marginally. However, most of us have computers with FireWire ports in them, and we have something else: with the popularity of USB, we often have a dearth of USB ports to plug things into. So wouldn't it be handy to put that old FireWire port to good use with something like the Delkin FireWire CompactFlash Reader .........
