The supercapacitor-powered Hydrogen portable speaker from Blueshift recharges in five minu...

Rechargeable batteries are the Achilles heel of portable electronics, requiring hours to recharge and generally having a life of around 1,000 recharge/discharge cycles before charge capacity starts to fall noticeably. To avoid both these problems, Sam Beck from Portland, Oregon-based Blueshift has created portable Bluetooth speakers that can be charged within five minutes and boast rated lifetimes of 500,000 charges thanks to being powered by supercapacitors.  Read More

MINER is a portable neutron scatter camera

It’s been a common trope in films since the 1950s; a madman with an atomic bomb holds a city for ransom while the authorities race to find it in time.

Targeting such users, iBox is introducing the smaller-scaled iBox Nano, a portable resin-based 3D printer designed specifically to print cheaply, easily, and quietly at a price far below larger UV-based resin machines, while still maintaining a good print quality.  Read More

Virtual pianos and synths in mobile device apps are great fun but nothing really gets your creative juices flowing like a real keyboard. If you want to marry the virtual and real worlds and find devices like Ion Audio's Piano Apprentice just a little too traditional, the similarly-priced K-Board from Keith McMillen Instruments might just tick your boxes.
