    The human body is a walking scientific spectacle. Even though the DNA between you and me is virtually 99% the same, it's that 1% sliver that differentiates all of us. Some like it hot. Some like it cold. Some can take the heat. Others simply drop like flies. For the ground thumpers out there, carrying a mini fan with you everywhere you go can be a nuisance and at times embarrassing. Thankfully there is the solar powered hat fan. Featuring two small solar panels and an actual miniaturiz...

    Imagine a world where we didn't have to have lights in every room with accompanying fixtures and stands taking up valuable space in our living quarters. Imagine a world where light could be placed anywhere we wanted, invisible to the naked eye until we needed it. Jonas Samson has envisioned and created what is quite possibly the coolest interior design product ever: Light Emitting Wallpaper. The paper is actually constructed of several layers; one for electricity, one where the LED's reside...
  • Chevy volt nabs 230 MPG rating…but how straightforward is that estimate?
    by Mike
    Posted August 11th, 2009 at 9:38 am
    Now, I'll just get straight to the chase and say it; Chevy was given a rating of 230 MPG for their electric car, the Volt. Now, at first you my think holy cow, cross country trips on a single tank of gas. But hold it there boys and girls, the marketing that GM is going to push and has already shown to be taking the spotlight, the 230 figure, is kind of misleading. While the car can technically go 230 on one tank of gas, the test for that number assumes the driver drives roughly 50-60 miles ...

    In search of the next geeky gift to give to the gadget lover in your life? Look no further than the Water Powered Calculator. Whether or not you'll actually ever use it, or if you even like math for that matter, you can't discredit the coolness and draw to a calculator (an electronic), run solely by water (the enemy of electronics). The greatest part about this calculator is as the title suggests, it uses nothing but water. No worrying about batteries and other money draining energy source...

    Even though many decades passed with the standard incandescent light bulb remaining largely unchanged, science in this past decade as finally set its sites on one of the world's most commonly used gadgets. A company called Eternaleds has launched a new liquid cooled LED lightbulb given the name "Hydrolux". The cooling of the internals comes by way of paraffin oil. Don't worry about toxicity as the oil is completely safe and has been deemed so by UL and ROHS standard. Currently the bulb onl...

    Like most gamers (I assume), I often turn of the TV after a gaming session and simply leave my PS3 or 360 on so that later I can come back and start right back up without waiting. Now, the more green readers out there may be a little red faced about this. But, it's what I do. Get over it. Then there are those other people that turn off the TV and simply forget to turn off their console -- their minds have a bit of a goldfish moment. Trickle Star would like to let you know that their new "...
  • Best Buy: Your new electric vehicle mega store?
    by Mike
    Posted July 7th, 2009 at 9:40 am
    Sure there are some mom and pop shops and other various smaller electronics chains throughout the U.S., but none of them can hold a candle against Best Buy, the electronics retail giant. Since the death of Circuit City, Best Buy has enjoyed success being the only one at the top. Though, with that success and power comes the need to constantly innovate and move forward. So how do they exactly plan on doing that? (Hint: Segway, electric bikes...) (more...)...
  • Go Green with your camera lenses…Literally
    by Mike
    Posted July 7th, 2009 at 6:03 am
    All good things in life come to an end. That shiny new gadget that wowed you 8 months ago has somehow lost its luster this morning. It isn't that hot blondshell babe that it once was. Instead, it is a 45 year old middle aged women with smokers cough and rotting teeth. While not quite as nasty or extreme, gadgets to lose their luster and over time become yet another thing that eventually gets tossed in the garbage set out into the open world to spend the rest of eternity not rotting away in...

    Mobile junkies and gadgety geeks are always looking for ways to get just a few more precious minutes of battery life coaxed out of our favorite gadgets while on the go.

Thankfully the forward thinkers consisting of Mathieu Servais, Camille Lefer, Clément Faydi, and Mickaël Denié, all third year students in France at t...

    When the mercury starts rising, many people start heading for cooler pastures, particularly ones with nice soft carpet, comfy couches, and a nice ambient air temperature. That pretty much describes your typical living room. But for those unlucky souls who have to venture outside, a decrease in clothing is often warranted to keep them from melting. However, the true geek never worries about himself but about the life of his gadgets. When others are passing out left and right, you can proudl...
  • Ensure your camping trips are full of green and white LED light
    by Mike
    Posted June 22nd, 2009 at 1:46 pm
    The whole idea of going camping (usually) is to get away from it all. The city life, a fast paced world, electronic distractions, and other gadgetry are abandoned as campers aim to reconnect with nature and enjoy being self sufficient. However, one of the slightly problems with living in mother natures grassy fields is that light...after rather scarce. Instead of fumbling with a flashlight or some other lantern, why not capture the light from the sun and reuse it later? That is ...

    Say you want to save a tad bit of water in your home, what do you do?  You could of course cut back on showers, dishes, watering the yard, etc.  But what about your washing machine.  Many people often overlook this in-house water-sucker as it is a machine that is often buried deep inside one's home, far from ear and eye - almost forgotten.  It is no secret that washing machines, even today's highly efficient models consume large amounts of water.  Gaining more mainstream attention in re...
