    Thomas has DIY a steam powered iPod generator, a weird idea.
    "Hi, thought you might get a kick out of my latest project. I coupled a Lego Technic Motor to a Jensen #75 steam engine to make a crude generator. From there I built a 5V regulator circuit and soldered in a female USB connection to power any USB device. Since I wanted to use it to charge my iPod, I put in a diode and a .5 amp fuse to provide some circuit protection. Attached are some pictures of it and here are some links to videos of it in action. Unfortunately you can't see the charge light on the ipod, But as you can hear, the iPod really loads the engine. I was somewhat surprise it could hack it. ", Thomas writes.

    This week Exmovere Holdings has unveiled a wearable transportation device, called the Chariot. Wow, what it looks like? The robot? The Chariot is a self-balancing, hands free concept vehicle which is a wearable, sensor-activated pod designed for use by amputees and others who have difficulty standing.
    Unlike other self-balancing vehicles(segway), the Exmovere Chariot is controlled by subtle movements of the lower torso and hips. Sensors inside the cocoon-like shell of the vehicle predict the intended motion of the wearer. The Chariot requires no manual dexterity, minimal physical effort and allows wearers to closely approach and reach objects. The upright form of the Chariot allows its wearer to make direct eye contact with others. The Chariot is battery powered and can travel up to 12 miles per hour.
    Exmovere will also develop a feature of the Chariot that can switch the wearer from upright to seated position. Exmovere seeks to partner with an automotive manufacturer to eventually launch a performance-oriented Chariot.

    BakerTweet is a way for busy bakers to tell the world(send out messages via Twitter) that something hot and fresh has just come out of the oven. All of the baker's followers get a Twitter alert to tell them that it's bun-time. Or bread time. Or whatever. By Poke London. The BakerTweet installed an Arduino board and a Linksys Wi-Fi adapter into a single, bakery-proof box. The dial is used to scroll through a list of baked goods, the button will send out a pre-configured tweet.
    "Everyone knows the best time to get your baked goods is when they're fresh out the oven. So we figured that this could be a killer use of Twitter. Letting followers know that fresh goodies are ready right now. But bakeries don't want laptops or phones lying around in the kitchen. Flour, eggs and technology don't mix so well.
    So we built BakerTweet.
    It's a bespoke piece of hardware (with Arduino-based guts) that allows our friends at Albion across the road to select what's just been baked and ping the relevant Twitter message to local customers. Meaning that you can time your trips to Albion to pick up the freshest freshness. "

    Wireless webcams are difficult to set-up and they need power. Vue Personal Video Network($300; Pre-order) system includes two cameras, a base station and the webcams are battery powered. The system uses a 2.4GHz network called a FrameMesh that connects to either a base station or another camera up to 50 feet away.

In short, these are disposable cameras for home use that can stick almost anywhere and use very little power(Uses small coin battery; Up to one-year of battery life under normal usage ). The base station sends the video to VueZone.com where you can activate different cameras and watch what's going on in your home. Sadly, the kit has no motion sensor so you're stuck checking things out whenever you feel that something might be amiss They film in VGA at 10 frames per second with resolution of 640 x 480. The kit with two cameras costs $299 and additional cameras cost $99.

    Impress is a "real" flexible interactive display, developed by Silke Hilsing. The prototype was built by foam and using pressure sensitive sensors that reacts to your movements on the screen.
    "Impress is the deliverance of the touch screen from its technical stiffness, coldness and rigidity. It breaks the distance in the relationship of human and technology, because it is not any longer the user which is subjected to technology, but in this case the display itself has to cave in to the human. Impress is a chance of approach of user and technology, above all, from technology.
    It is a matter of a flexible display consisting of foam and force sensors which is deformable and feels pleasantly soft. Impress works with the parameters position and time like other touch screens as well, but in addition to that, it reacts, above all, on the intensity of pressure." Watch video of it in action.

    Steampunk Lamp by Michael Pusateri. Made of an old wooden cigar box, two 60 watt bulbs, a handful of copper wire...
    "I used an old wooden cigar box, a few ceramic bulb mounts, a rheostat and few other odds and ends. I did get a little fancy and paint the ceramic mounts with textured copper paint. The wiring was trivial, but I got a chance to use an Underwriter's Knot. There's a lot more steampunk I could have thrown at it, but I like the simplicity of this. I used two 60 watt bulbs, so it can get quite bright. It's much more pleasant at a lower light level."
