SensDevice is a mouse therapist for you

SensDevice is a mouse therapist for  you

A few years ago I was sharing a house with a friend and they became so enraged with their computer that they threw it across the room. I’ll admit I’ve been really upset and wanted to do that but never enough that I actually did it. My friend could have used the SensDevice therapist in a mouse.

Conceptual Fire Extinguisher puts out flames by throwing balls at it

Conceptual Fire Extinguisher puts out flames by throwing balls at it

Last year there was a huge fire in my town that did some damage to my place of work. It was the first time “devastating fire” ever really hit home with me and I’m not ashamed to admit I have a slight fear of another fire being started to finish what the first one didn’t. I like to be safe and feel safe and I actually keep a fire resistant body shield in my vehicle. You can never be too safe. I’d really like to the Capsule fire extinguisher brought to life, I’d feel a lot safer with one around.

Carina Implantable Hearing Aid

Hearing is something some of us take for granted. My sister has some hearing problems due to birth complications so we’ve dealt with all sorts of different solutions and hearing aids for her.

Glucoboy Blood Sugar Tester

I’m just about the only person in my family who doesn’t need to test their blood sugar everyday. Maybe that’s a good thing but the gamer inside me is a little disappointed after seeing the Glucoboy, even though I don’t own Game Boy.

Siemens Acuson P50 is a MacBook Pro pimped for medical use

Siemens Acuson P50 is a MacBook Pro pimped for medical use

Germany’s Siemens dropped a medical bomb recently with the showing of this magnificent MacBook Pro. Personally I think these notebooks are small works of art without addition, but adding an ultrasound machine is an amazing feat.

Furthermore, it doesn’t add too much girth to the laptop, well, at least not for a freaking ultrasound machine. You can still use the MBP as a regular notebook with web surfing, email, all that usual stuff, but there is the added hardware for the Ultrasound machine, and there is some added software for the same.
