Gadgetzz will be at the next Destination Star Trek in Germany. Stay tuned!
Bass Egg is an amazing little gadget that turns any surface into a powerful speaker. It’s essentially a portable vibration speaker, unlike regular speakers the Bass Egg skips the speaker cone and sends vibrations directly into the surface it’s on. Cool enough so far, but the sound quality is beyond all expectations. You can literally feel the bass in the floor. While it produces amazing bass it also manages to make a fairly clear sound.
In this TED talk video Eden Bayer explores the possibilities of using Mushrooms to make plastic.
“There are three principles that should govern better materials. Firstly, they should be able to be created almost anywhere on the planet. Secondly, they should require considerably less energy to produce than current materials. Lastly, they should be able to be disposed of by nature’s wonderful open-source recycling system.”
This is the worlds roundest object, it is made of the same material as micro processors, and so it costs a fortune! So why make this incredibly round ball of silicon?
The world’s roundest object helps solve the longest running problem in measurement — how to define the kilogram.
A kilogram isn’t what it used to be. Literally. The original name for it was the ‘grave’, proposed in 1793 but it fell victim to the French Revolution like its creator, Lavoisier. So begins the tale of the most unusual SI unit. The kilogram is the only base unit with a prefix in its name, and the only one still defined by a physical artifact, the international prototype kilogram or IPK. (more…)
There are many unique types of gesture control devices out there, but this one is slightly different. The device ‘transforms’ your palm into a gesture interface, so you’ve essentially got a keypad or touchpad, right on your hand. This is made possible by the fact that the tiny device is programmed to recognize each segment of your fingers. The current version of Fin can carry up to five different commands per device, but its creators might be aiming for more in the final version. It connects to most smart devices via bluetooth. Also it will come with a powerful built-in battery that can last for more than a month. (more…)
