Google believe technology should work for you — to be there when you need it and get out of your way when you don’t.

A team within the Google[x] group started Project Glass to build this kind of technology, one that helps you explore and share your world, putting you back in the moment.

Follow along with them at http://g.co/projectglass as they share some of our ideas and stories. What would you like to see from Project Glass?

 

So How Much Vomit Would One Need To Fly? | Gizmodo.com

By Andrew Liszewski

Completely forgetting that today is supposed to be about romance, Minute Physics asks if it’s really possible for the Milk Man superhero, featured in Freddie Wong’s video, to fly by spewing milk from his mouth.

The unsettling answer is of course yes, but the vast quantities of highly dense milk required to get someone off the ground unfortunately make this dream unattainable for the common man—but not Milk Man. And if you have no idea what I or Minute Physics is talking about, you’ll want to check out Freddie Wong’s original video which I’ve included.

Box rides on iCloud’s coattails, offers 50GB of free cloud storage to iOS users — Engadget

Box rides on iCloud’s coattails, offers 50GB of free cloud storage to iOS users — Engadget

No, your eyes don’t deceive you — Box is offering 50GBs of free storage inside its cloud for iOS users — just like it did for TouchPad owners back in June. Anyone who downloads the latest version of Box’s app for iPad and iPhone will receive their massive lot for data storage after registering a personal account (existing accounts can join in on the fun as well). To make better use of that extra space, Box will also be bumping upload capacity from 25MB to 100MB per file and baking in AirPlay support. Look, Box is obviously skitching on iCloud’s tail, but it sure seems like a crazy good deal considering that space is yours “forever.” The promotion will last for 50 days, officially starting at 12AM on October 14th — although, we’re already seeing the update on our end. Full details in the source link.

The Slingshot Madman Makes Death Portable

The Slingshot Madman Makes Death Portable.
By

Our appreciation for bald, vaguely Eastern European, totally insane slingshot purveyor Joerg Sprave is long-established and unbounded. And he apparently loves his fans right back, if this extremely dangerous, reasonably-sized death-by-wood-and-rubber contraption is any indication.

The only problem with previous Joerg creations (read: machete crossbow) is that they were a bit unwieldy, hard to carry down the street or to a family reunion without garnering a lot of awkward stares. Not so the ultra compact Bullpup Slingshot Crossbow, a condensed version of Joerg’s apocalyptic vision. Full instructions on how to build your own are coming soon, but for now, enjoy the retro-mayhem.

Thermochromic Urinal Makes Peeing Fun » Geeky Gadgets

Alright, cat’s out of the bag. The truth is we’ve always enjoyed drawing stuff with pee. A gross use of body fluid, yes, but creativity has no bounds. Such a mindset likely produced the Thermochromic Urinal pictured below. There’s scant detail about who made it or where it’s used. Judging by the photographic evidence, however, it does take a fresh approach to the concept of a urinal. As its name suggests, the Thermochromic Urinal is a heat sensitive wall that registers the temperature of the urine on its surface. It’s nutty, but also looks like fun. And a work of art. Since the pee graphic is done in bright orange, the Thermochromic Urinal presents a rare opportunity for pee artists to scrawl their names with whizz. Amazing.

For the first time in almost fifty years, an official Mini team is entering the World Rally Championship.

In 1964, the Mini turned its iconic status into world fame when it won the Monte Carlo rally.

The new BMW Mini, built and run by Prodrive, will take part in its first rally in Sardinia on 5th May.

The Banbury-based team is hoping to challenge for individual rally wins next year, and the championship in 2013.
