Static Electricity Eliminator – Protect your electronics!

Static Electricity Eliminator – Protect your electronics!

One of the things I can’t stand the most would be getting shocked due to static electricity. I fear the metal doorknob or desk that might give me that tiny little jolt. Maybe that shows just what a sissy I am but it’s true and I won’t deny it.

Now, though, thanks to the Static Electricity Eliminator I can be jolt free and so can you. It’s all very simple really, you just touch the rubber end to any grounded object and voila, a little flash will indicate you are static free and safe to roam the metal jungle. Of course, since you’re static free now, you don’t have to fear harming any of your electronic goodies, it’s a win/win.

Fold Away Scooters – Another step in making the world a greener place

Fold Away Scooters – Another step in making the world a greener place

MIT unveiled what it calls (quite reasonably) a fold away scooter. As the name suggests you can fold this scooter up. It reminds me a little of that commercial where the lady transformers her vehicle into a tiny box she drops in her purse… Well this shows you just how close we are to making that a reality.

The design is yet another step in making the world a “greener” place. MIT’s Smart Cities Group wanted to provide a clean, silent electronic scooter. Obviously this would be great for big cities but a problem lies in storage, that’s where the folding comes in. Like I said before, it folds up into something equivalent to rolling suitcase that can be toted and stored in a small area of your office or what-have-you.

Send in the Drones

Send in the Drones

When your manpower is lacking it’s only plausible to turn to your laboratory to build something or another to do the work you’re incapable of handling. It’s simple (Mad Scientist) logic. So it’s easy to understand why the Miami police have come to this same conclusion.

Starting next year, FAA willing, the Miami police force will be using drones to patrol areas during SWAT team and tactical operations. The MAV (Micro Air Vehicle) is made by Honeywell and soar over 10,000 feet. These unmanned units, which the military has been using for sometime, will be controlled via a remote used only by licensed pilots.

Watching Your TV Bed – Hollandia Platinum-Luxe Elite

Watching TV in bed just got a whole lot easier with the TV bed, that’s right, the TV is built in. Personally, I prefer my TV on the ceiling. Hollandia International, who are known for luxurious, restful, and expensive sleep systems, have made the next obvious step in bed design.

This system sports a 32 inch Sony Bravia HDTV right in the footboard, but that’s not all. You’ll get a Sony Bravia theater system which includes a five disk DVD/CD changer, five speaker surround sound and a subwoofer conveniently located under the bed. Oh, and there’s also and iPod docking station.

Samsung SGH-i620 aka Sangria hands-on

Samsung SGH-i620 aka Sangria hands-on

I had a chance to get some hands-on time with the Samsung Sangria here at Mobius. Make sure to click through for a walkthrough video (special thanks to the lovely Judie Lipsett from GearDiary).

The Sangria can be summed up as applicious, thanks to the ipod-like scroll wheel and the white chassis. I found the portliness form-factor refreshing. The slide out keyword is comfortable to use and the UI is also easy to use.

Asus makes source for Eee PC available

Asus makes source for Eee PC available

In a move to bring its company back in line with the goals and requirements of the GPL, ASUS made the sourced code for the OS on the Eee PC available. They even went a step further and said they are working on and SDK to aid in the development of stuff for the Eee PC.

If they are running a Linux Kernel, I don’t know why they need an SDK, but then again I don’t fully understand programming either. So that’s your Eee news for today.
