    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 [...]

    Aircruise: The Luxury Aircraft Of The Future?

An airship may sound like a step back in technological development, but it does make perfect sense.  We’ve been conducting air-powered flights long before engined planes and it might be time we explored how we can take [...]

    Transfer Cutting Board Makes Your Kitchen Chopping And Dropping Duties Faster

    Some kitchen innovations really do wonders, turning erstwhile difficult chores into simple tasks.  Others like the Transfer Cutting Board may sound lazy but hey, if you’d like to save a couple extra seconds after chopping piles of garlic and onion for the duck  stew, I’m sure it will help. 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 [...]

    How To Build A USB Hard Drive With No Enclosure…Not

    When I first saw this image of the DIY USB Hard Drive, the only thing in my mind was “How do I build my own?”  After reading further, I laughed out loud.  It’s a trap. Well, not really a trap, but a clever, clever mod.  The first time you see it, you think some guy managed to figure out how to retrofit a hard disk with a USB plug.  Unfortunately, that’s not really the case.  Imagine the look on your [...]

Despite the older gentleman riding one, it’s not meant just for old people.  I think its a perfect ride for lazy folks like myself also. I’d probably use it as an electric scooter everywhere also.

    Mad Scientists Build Robots That Evolve Hunting, Cooperative And Altruistic Abilities

    Do you think Robots are dumb?  Well, throw in neural networks and random mutation and things change rather quickly.  According to a bunch of Swiss researchers (who are not really mad scientists), the experimental droids eventually developed adaptive abilities, evolving a whole new set of skills such as finding their ways through a complex maze and (gasp!) hunting for prey. According to Dario Floreano (of the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne) and Laurent Keller (of the University of Lausanne), in [...]
