Researchers at MIT have come up with something incredible, a bracelet that regulates your body temperature. Literally meaning that this wristband replaces your AC, your heating system and even your jacket.
Wristify, as they call their device, is a thermoelectric bracelet that regulates the temperature of the person wearing it by subjecting their skin to alternating pulses of hot or cold, depending on what’s needed. The prototype recently won first place at this year’s MADMEC, an annual competition put on by the school’s Materials Science and Engineering program, netting the group a $10,000 prize, which they’ll use to continue its development. It’s a promising start to a clever approach that could help alleviate the energy crisis.
Ototo is an experimental PCB based synthesizer from design and invention studio Dentaku, which is designed for people who don’t know how to program or code. And the idea is that you can use this to turn virtually anything into a musical instrument. Your imagination is the only limit.
Ototo allows you to combine sensors, inputs and touchpads and easily create your own electronic musical instrument. You can make a drum kit out of some saucepans or an origami that sings when touched. Ototo is designed to let anyone unpack a kit and interact with sound however they want to, no soldering or coding required.
This Carbon fiber Flask is supposed to be virtually indestructible. After watching the video i do believe it is. They dragged it behind several cars, ran it over and dropped it from a helicopter.
The team behind The Flask felt that traditional lab-based product testing didn’t quite match the work that went into the final product. These “Test Sessions” are the result of a few well-placed phone calls to some great friends. One flask was very badly harmed during the course of testing — but the whisky inside it was not. Result!
