The new LifePoint function distills each user’s mistakes into one easy-to-find moment when their lives irrevocably took a turn for the worse.
This desktop tornado is a cool alternative to a lavalamp. It uses an atomizer to make the smoke out of water, and fans to make it swirl. It includes seven different experiments you can do with it. It looks pretty cool, but it’s fairly expensive.
These headphones are cleverly designed to look like bullets, and they seem to be quite good too. The earbuds are machined from a copper alloy housing coated with titanium, and the cable is made of Kevlar-reinforced fabric. So they are made to last.
And they are powered by a 9mm driver fit inside what they call a “Bass Enhancing Chamber engineered to produce the deepest most accurate bass without distortion.”. (more…)
Scientists from Germany have developed a way for airplanes to be controlled directly by the pilots brain. Quite similar to the Neural Interface used in Star Trek to control starships with their brain alone.
They had seven subjects (one with no cockpit experience at all) use a flight simulator, and apparently, they all navigated the virtual skies with enough accuracy to pass a flying license test. To make the brain-to-plane communication possible, the group outfitted the subjects with a cap connected to EEG electrodes. Signals from the subjects’ brains were then translated into commands using an algorithm developed by the TU Berlin scientists.
