Visitors attending the Amsterdam Light Festival have been treated to some spooky goings on with an appearance from a ghost ship. The ghost ship can be seen moored on the canal and is all thanks to modern technology. [Image Courtesy of Visual Skin] If you are heading to the Amsterdam Light Festival you can take in the Ghost Ship located just off the island of Oosterdok which is in front of the Amsterdam Centre For Architecture and the National Maritime Museum. The ship was designed by Visual Skin and is an illusion projecting an image onto two screens of perpendicular water that intersect. […]
You probably guessed from the title that this is a water bottle with a wireless speaker on it – and you’d be right. This nifty little device is perfect for those who want some music accompanying their cycles without the danger and hassle of headphones. It also doubles up as a portable device charger, for topping up your smart phone or tablet. The 11.75-ounce-capacity bottle has a wireless Bluetooth speaker as a secondary lid (so that water doesn’t go everywhere when you want to take the speaker off). Its a 3-watt speaker and the 3000mAh battery serves up 6 hours of tunes, which […]
Google’s Project Wing has been working on a VTOL (Vertical Take Off and Landing) drone that can deliver parcels that also switches to fixed wing for flight. This allows it to fly much faster than your traditional drone. Up until now there hasn’t been a commercially viable product of such, but you may be able to get your hands on one soon by way of the X PlusOne. [Image Courtesy of xCraft] The X PlusOne can be used in hover mode to take off vertically and land. At the same time it can take aerial video from the small camera that comes […]
Sony has announced that it is developing a module that can be clipped onto any pair of normal glasses and turn them into a Google Glass rival. The hardware can function on its own and offers a single OLED display with a high pixel density that they claim offers superior image quality. To try and give the headset a kick-start, they are now trying to encourage developers to get on-board. [Image Courtesy of Sony] What makes the Sony smart headset stand out as being interesting is the fact that it is universally compatible, meaning that it can be clipped on to a pair […]
You may remember a video back in 2012 that featured some modified traffic lights that let those waiting for the green man to pass time playing pong with someone on the other side of the road. Called StreetPong, it offered pedestrians a way to pass time while waiting, especially those anxious crossers who may try to cross early. The designers behind the project, Amelie Künzler, Sandro Angel, and Holger Michel, have since been working to further develop the tech after it went viral. Since 2012, they have worked with other design firms and traffic experts to create a fully functional device and now, […]
The creators of the Brio power outlet designed it so that it would keep children safer around the home. The outlet is a smart and safe one that the designers say can tell the difference between an electrical appliance being plugged into it and a child’s finger, and will only put the power on when it detects an appliance. [Image Courtesy of Brio] The Brio comes with two outlet points and it fits onto the wall just the same way as the standard power outlet. In its default state the Brio is off and there is no electricity flowing through […]
