This is an interesting development for science that involves glass. You know the problem of how it is transparent, imagine if it just wasn't. Now, there is turnable glass that uses nanocrystals and metallic nanostructures, but it is pretty costly. That could change as Professor David Clarke and Samuel Shian at Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied … [Read more...] about Glass Turns from Opaque to Clear in a Second

Okay, every once in a while, I see some kind of new device that I think is going to change the world. I think LG has already seen it. We have been living in a world where the smartphone has been just a touchscreen with very few buttons. We obviously have Apple to thank for that, but what is the next step? After all, it is very clear that those old flip phones from a … [Read more...] about LG wants their phones with Flexible OLEDs

This is Patent No. … [Read more...] about Samsung patents a foldable tablet

One of my Sources says that this is real. The Amazon Dash is a one click shopping method that involves no logging on whatsoever. Basically, it is a button that you can push to order things that … [Read more...] about Amazon Dash is apparently a real product
What you are seeing here in this man's hand is the Runcible, and it is created by someone name Monohm who is wanting to create the "anti-smartphone". I guess the best way to describe it is somewhere in between a wearable and a smartphone. After all, smartwatches are wearables that give you a ton of notifications, and then you can actually do something about them on your … [Read more...] about Runcible, otherwise known as the “anti-smartphone”

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the future! It is an invisible plane, just like the one that Wonder Woman flies. Actually, it is only invisible on the inside, as you can see on the video above. Seriously, it is not. However, this plane has some kind of touchscreen technology on the walls that allows the user to see outside the walls. Not only do you get quite a view, … [Read more...] about Invisble Planes and Cars! Here’s how.
I think we all want to prevent the amount of gun accidents, and I found it amazing that Kai Kloepfer, a Boulder high school student, came up with a way to make it happen. Kai is the grand prize winner for SmartTech for Firearms Challenge, and his design uses an embedded fingerprint sensor on the gun itself. These fingerprints can only be used on the gun, so it can't be … [Read more...] about Welcome to the age of the smartgun, thanks to a high school student
I said three days ago that Apple's Pay could change everything, and it certainly has the potential to change the way we pay via smartphone. Now here's another device that could change the way we pay. You know that plastic bar that you use in the grocery store? The one that blocks other person's load of groceries so you don't pay for his or her stuff? Well, imagine that … [Read more...] about Motion Display Checkout Divider
I saw a picture of the Spheree on my Source, and I thought it was some kind of crystal ball, but with holograms. Seriously, wouldn't you pay good money for something that? After all, who wouldn't want some way to communicate with their friend as a 3-D floating head? Unfortunately, this is not what the Spheree is. It is essentially a ball-shaped screen where you can work … [Read more...] about Spheree, a 3D Interactive Spherical Scalable Display
It's pretty clear that Google Glass is going to be the new smartphone, as soon as imitators bring the price down to at least below $1,000. I believe that the controls are done with voice or touch, but now the power of mind is getting into the equations. This is the MindRDR, and it uses a method of controls that I have seen before, like with the NeuroSky with their … [Read more...] about MindRDR gives the Google Glass some brain power
This is one of those products that I can't believe will ever be a reality. This plane is apparently under development from BAE Systems, a UK aerospace and defense contractor, and it looks like an 80's kid's toy. In fact, it is even called The Transformer. It certainly looks like it is from the 80's cartoon that eventually turned into four (count 'em four) Michael Bay … [Read more...] about BAE Systems introduces The Transformer, a plane you wanted to see as a child
