Gear  |  Projects
It’s a credit-card sized and shaped piece of plastic with a capacitive area. This turns it into a stylus which you can use with any touch-sensitive device. The traditional stylus is hard to carry. But you can carry this in your wallet with all your cards. We’re not sure when or if it’ll ever come out of the Quirky labs, but if it does, its projected price is $4.

Rocking-2-Gether Chair

The Rocking-2-Gether Chair designed by Paul Kweton. 
"The rocking-2-gether chair (patent pending) is a hybrid between a rocking chair and dog/cat house. This project initially started in 2011, generating digital 3D models. Several 1:8 scale 3D printed models followed, refining the balance and rocking behaviour of the chair. The prototype 2.1 chair is made out of CNC milled birch plywood. The density and amount of the CNC milled "ribs" can be controlled with differently sized wooden spacers (see photographs), ergo controlling the visual connection between the person and his/her pet. The design process and final full scale prototype of the rocking-2-gether chair showcases the successful combination of digital modeling and digital fabrication"

Students launch a rubber chicken into space

Gear  |  Projects
This rubber chicken named Camilla. Camilla was tied to a helium balloon and floated 120,000 feet above earth to study solar storms as part of an experiment by a group of high school students and fifth graders. It used a helium balloon to launch Camilla and a lunchbox filled with cameras, a cryogenic thermometer, GPS trackers, seven insects, and 24 sunflower seeds 119,000 feet into the air.  The chicken was outfitted with radiation badges to measure the storm. The high school students involved in the project are part of a group called Earth to Sky from Bishop, California. Camilla was on loan to the group courtesy of NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory where she serves as mascot in residence encouraging young women to pursue Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) careers.

Array
Gear  |  Projects
The lightweight and recyclable plastic ear was conceived by Evan Clabots. He created it because the back-facing speaker of the iPad has less than optimal sound. It will enhance your iPad’s integrated speaker. It works by redirecting and reflecting the sound of the iPad through a Mickey Mouse ear-shaped cup. Amplifiear was launched as a Kickstarter project, and you’ll need to pledge at least $15(USD) to get yours.

Flashdance Chair Socks

Protect your floor with Chair Socks, by Leanne, Adventuregurl on Ravelry.
Leanne wrote, ”The real inspiration behind the Flashdance Chair socks was the cheap, stick-on felt floor protector circles I kept buying from the Dollar Store, that always peeled off after a month or so. The answer to all my problems is usually knitting, and this case was no different. I set out to whip up some ‘socks’ for my chairs, only they didn’t end up being short, like the crocheted floor protectors your Grandma had. They were more like knee-highs or legwarmers! As a true child of the 80’s, when I think Legwarmers, I think “Flashdance”. No one rocked the legwarmers like Jennifer Beals…‘She’s a maniac, maniac on the floor’.”
