Five Must See Water Infographics!
Five Must See Water Infographics!

Giving those who have nothing the opportunity to improve their lives is something that I find very close to my heart. I think one of the best ways to make a global impact is to help improve upon clean water infrastructure. Half of all illness in Africa is due to unsanitary water. Diarrhea  is the number one killer of children in the world. [...]

10 Beautiful Fractals
10 Beautiful Fractals

Fractals are natures way of showing us incompetent non-mathies that math is freakin’ sweet. From sunflowers to snails to those fossilized spiral shell things, fractals are everywhere, which is in part why they can have such a profound effect on the senses. If you look at a fractal long enough you will get lost in it, partly because it turns out the brain is damn good [...]

The Wonderful City of Tomorrow, Circa 1920
The Wonderful City of Tomorrow, Circa 1920

Everyone seems to love to speculate about the future. Hell, it’s pretty damn fun. So here are some future city sepculations from the 1920′s. Sadly, their ideal 1950′s city has yet to come to pass. Maybe someday future cities will have three layers of roads, crazy cars, and blimps. These designs were created by Harvey Corbett, who designed many modernest [...]

$15,000 Bullet Proof Watch!

If you are lucky, when you retire from your illustrious career someone you barely know, from some department you have never heard about, will give a speach and if you are lucky will hand you one a Tread 1, designed by Devon Works, in lieu of the traditional gold retirement Rolex (or Rollexx depending on where you work). This beauty defines the term “analog digital [...]

Honda Innova Scooter Eco Mod
Honda Innova Scooter Eco Mod

The plain Jane Honda Innova gets 100 mpg and tops out at 55 mph, which puts it somewhere between a honda metropolitan and a kawasaki in terms of badassness. However, longtime recumbent bicyclist, scooter aficionado, and Dutchman (of course) Allert Jacobs took a look at his little Honda scooter and decided to ratchet up the badassness factor by improving the scooters design with [...]

Paintball Printer
Paintball Printer

The Facade Printer is frankly nothing more than a glorified paintball gun, a paintball gun that can calculate distances and shoot with 99% accuracy to create magnificent pieces of art. Facade Printer utilizes a paintball tank attached to a computer controlled barrel, which is comparable in design to those used in sniper paintball guns. Built by three Berlin designers, the rig is meant to create huge images on [...]

Cell Phone With Morphing Braille Screen
Cell Phone With Morphing Braille Screen

I just recently wrote a post on Braille Watches and it got me thinking about other neat braille technologies. This gem is a braille cell phone developed by samsung for the visually impaired. It is the ultimate minimalist phone. When off only the number pad remains raised. The screen uses an Electric Active Plastic which raises dots to form the braille alphabet on the screen using electric [...]

Abstract Art That Sucks… CO2 and Cleans the Air!

Carbon dioxide is a hot topic these days, with global warming, dieing polar bears and whatnot. A lot of people have started to ask questions. How is carbon dioxide formed? Where is carbon dioxide found? What is carbon dioxide used for? It is important to ask questions, but more important to take action. Global Research Technologies has asked their question and [...]

The Future of Braille Watches
The Future of Braille Watches

Braille Watches are not new, there have been silvana braille watches and various other brands of pendant braille watches, but they have all been standard watches with faces that open so one can feel where the watch hands are. Frankly, ye classic braille watches are just normal watches with open faces. But that could all change! American designer David Chavez [...]

Five Terrible Alarm Clock Concepts

Tantrum Alarm Clock: Have you ever thought: I just really want to wake up to a screaming three year-old every-morning? Well if you do, this could be the perfect alarm clock for you! It screams bloody murder until you smack it on the head. You can’t do that to a toddler. Grenade Alarm Clock: For the soldier in you, it only turns off when [...]
