Pacific Rim 2 penned, awaiting green light and plotline

The original Pacific Rim was released this summer - it was met with mixed reviews by critics, but more than a little bit of a positive response from those key to the success of a potential series: the fans. This week it's been revealed by the director of Pacific Rim, Guillermo del Toro, that he's been flattered by reports of hardcore fans seeing the film in theaters several times. It would appear that the film has struck such gold - be it underground or straight through mainstream ticket sales - that a second film is being written right this minute.

ECOXPOWER adds a headlight and smartphone charger to your bicycle

ECOXPOWER adds a headlight and smartphone charger to your bicycle

At first glance, this seems like a weird device. It's designed as both a headlight and a smartphone charger for your bicycle in one device. Every time I see something like this it reminds me of that episode of The Simpsons where Bart has the headlight dynamo generator thingy that makes it nearly impossible to pedal his bike.
