TellSpec tells consumers just what’s in their food

A war is taking place between consumers wanting to know more of what’s in their food and government lobbyists dedicated to making sure that doesn’t happen. The concerns go beyond getting labels on food containing genetically modified ingredients. A new device called TellSpec will let consumers know the details of what’s really in their food. Developed by Isabel Hoffmann with mathematician Stephen Watson, this hand-held scanner will warn you about chemicals, allergens and ingredients you’d rather avoid, help you figure…

Thermodynamic Cell Phone Charger – A low-tech way to keep your hi-tech phone alive

It’s a cruel irony of our hi-tech life that smartphones allow us to stay connected with the rest of the world 99% of the time, but during that 1%, when we really need that digital lifeline (like during storms or power outages), we become victims of that little flashing battery icon. How do you charge a phone when there’s no power? You use science.

Wipebook – It’s like a big Whiteboard stuffed into a notebook

Students are getting ready to enjoy a much-needed break and looking forward to Santa bringing them notebooks for Christmas. Notebooks? Yes, because the old ones are filled to the brim, with assorted notes being scribbled on every spare inch of paper available. Wouldn’t it be easier – and cheaper – to simply erase all those unnecessary notes and use the same notebook again? Now you can.

PowerCap – The head-topper that lights the way

Hands-free lighting is a great thing because sometimes we have too much going on to deal with also holding a flashlight. Unfortunately, most hands-free lighting set-ups leave a lot to be desired when it comes to looking cool and stylish. Now it’s possible to have extra light without it looking like someone jammed a flashlight into your forehead.

BlinkerGrips – The bicycle grips that say, ‘Hey! I’m riding here.’

There are a lot of reasons to ditch the car in favor of a bicycle: Pedal-power is environmentally-friendly, riding is a great way to stay in shape (and why not exercise as you go from Point A to Point B), and it’s usually easier to find a spot to park your bike than it is a car. However, bicycles do require a little more caution, including easy ways to make sure other people on the road see you.

Stop Phubbing – become a nicer person, put down your phone for a minute…

There’s a movement happening people, a protest against the erosion of human values and decency. It’s not about crime, politics or even gender, it’s about connecting or the lack thereof. We’re absolutely in agreement with the sentiment and we promote the policy here to try and encourage everyone to join in. After all, it’s only polite.
