The Equil Smartmarker can stream notes made on a whiteboard surface to mobile devices

The notes made on a whiteboard during a meeting or lecture might be important, but once the board is wiped they're gone. The Equil Smartmarker, however, can make sure that's not the case. It can capture whiteboard notes and stream them to computers and mobile devices.  Read More

Beam is a smart projector that can be screwed into a light socket

Beam is a new projector that functions a little differently than others on the market. Not only can it be plugged into a traditional power outlet, but it can also screw directly into a light socket, making it easy for users to utilize anywhere.  Read More

A 3D CNC router (computer controlled cutting machine) assembled from UberBlox, which is a ...

As cool and wonderful as Lego is, those plastic bricks can be tricky to handle if you want to step up from mere constructive play into serious custom-built prototyping. UberBlox hopes to fill that gap. It's a metal construction set and prototyping system with a single-connector locking mechanism and a variety of control boxes for accommodating whatever computer connection or automation needs a project might have.  Read More

Swyp aims to slim down your wallet by condensing up to 25 cards into one

Over the last couple of years we’ve seen a number high-tech cards that aim to slim down your wallet, all offering pretty similar functionality. The Swyp Card is the latest to make a bid for your hard-earned cash, promising to condense your wallet into a single metal card that stores info from debit, credit, loyalty and gift cards.  Read More

Researchers from South Korea have developed a thin, highly-flexible film that could enable a new generation of wearable devices that wrap around your finger or wrist. The multiferroic film even amplified the properties inherent in the bismuth ferrite it was made from, and the enhanced properties were preserved when the film was curved into a cylindrical shape.  Read More

The way snails control the growth of their shells has provided inspiration for a new appro...

In an ongoing effort to improve the performance of lithium-ion batteries, scientists have looked to the techniques that snails use to control the growth of their shells. This biological inspiration, combined with a peptide found to bind very effectively with materials used to make cathodes, has potential for making lighter and longer-lasting batteries.  Read More

A new method developed by University College, London (UCL) has managed to double the dista...

A new method of processing signals via fiber optic cables could vastly increase the distance at which error-free data is transmitted via submarine cables without additional signal amplification. As the technique is capable of correcting corrupted or distorted data being transmitted, it may also assist in increasing the capacity of all optical fiber communications.  Read More

The Voltera V-One is designed to speed up and simplify the process of electronic circuit b...

In designing and prototyping electronic circuit boards there is no quick or simple way to produce results. Many hours of design and development need to be expended on prototype layouts along with masking, etching, and populating those boards with components. Even after all of this, just one simple layout mistake can ruin all of your work and you have to go through the entire process again. The Voltera V-One aims to change all of that with the promise of a one button, conductive ink printing system solely designed to reduce the effort in rapid, small run hardware prototyping.  Read More

The Sonicable is said to charge any device twice as fast as standard charging cables

When you're in a rush, it can feel your phone is taking forever to charge. A new cable, however, promises to cut the time it takes to charge mobile devices from a PC. The Sonicable is said to be able to charge any device twice as quickly through a PC's USB port than they would with regular charging cables.  Read More
