    Paper Jamz Crams Working Electronic Instruments Into Cardboard-Like Frames

    Xetum Watches Bring Swiss Quality And Understated Class At A Reasonable Price

    I can appreciate a complex timepiece just as much as the next guy.  Given the choice, though, I’d just as quickly go for classy and sophisticated.  Those two qualities are exactly what Xetum’s minimalist designs bring in droves. Founded by San Francisco designer Jeff Kuo, the new watchmaker only started operations late last year.  All designs are made locally, although the pieces are manufactured and assembled right in Switzerland. Xetum’s initial models consist of the Stinson and the Tyndall, two [...]

    NASA Builds Humanoid Robonaut 2, Gives It Human-Like Hands

    We all love robots.  Humanoid automatons, on the other hand, are just freaky to me.  I don’t want my robot housekeeper to look like Robocop, thank you very much.  That’s not going to stop NASA, though, who just finished introducing the Robonaut 2 (R2), a humanoid robot capable of many precise, human-like actions. Created in collaboration with General Motors, the automotive assembly line is obviously one of this machine’s more likely destinations.  NASA’s interest, however, is in space exploration, where [...]

    Reebok Zigtech’s Zig-Zag Sole Energizes Your Legs, Allows You To Train More

    Reebok calls the ZigTech an “energy drink for your feet.”  The rationale is that, as their most technologically-advanced running shoes, it’s configured to minimize the work performed by your leg muscles.  As a result, you get to run more while straining them less. It sports a design aesthetic that’s completely new.  Or maybe I just don’t keep up with kicks all that much.  Whatever the case, they basically took the shoe upper and rested it on a zig-zag cushion, with [...]

Laziness is underrated.  If the masses weren’t so lazy, no one would bother to innovate for them. That’s why I herald the minuscule yet efficient gains this little modification to the [...]
