Hapilabs' Smart Fork

Array
Gear  |  Projects


Hapilabs' HAPIfork first debuted at CES in January, and is now available to pre-order for $99. The original Kickstarter campaign raised $134,000 to develop and manufacture the HAPIfork and a video explaining the function of the HAPIfork. The HAPIfork recorded each movement from fork to plate, which is recorded as a "fork serving," monitoring how long it takes to finish a meal, the number of fork servings consumed per minute, and the interval between each fork serving. It is designed to alert users when they are eating too fast, an issue that can lead to "poor digestion and poor weight control," according to the Hapilabs website.
HAPIfork is a revolution! It will help millions of people eat more slowly, adopt good eating habits, lose weight and feel great! Additionally, with HAPIfork comes the HAPI.com platform for web and mobile. Our cross-device platform makes the experience of changing bad habits easy and fun. Here we’ve created a coaching program providing helpful nutrition and fitness tips and motivational social games to help keep people implement their new healthy habits.”

"Nino Sarabutra has filled the gallery floor with more than 100,000 miniature porcelain skulls and invites you to walk on them. Entering the gallery, every step you take you will be treading on the skulls, unavoidably. In truth, each step we take brings us one step closer to our own demise, yet we never know which will be our last."

Pressy Kickstarter project raises over $500,000

Array
Gear  |  Projects
The next big project from crowd-funded website Kickstarter is Pressy. This is a button that fits into the 3.5mm earphone jack on an Android phone and can be set-up to do a number of things with your handset like toggle Wi-Fi on and off, act as the shutter for the camera, or start an audio recording. Anything your phone can do can be set up to run using Pressy. The very first day, the project received twice the $40,000 it was seeking and is now up to more than $500,000 in funding. What will the company do with all of this money? For one thing, they are creating a push-to-talk system they call Pressy-to-talk. Just hold your Pressy button and talk. The other party will hear you and can communicate with you as long as they too have a Pressy button. Expected to come to market in March 2014. The lowest price funding option still remaining that comes with a Pressy is $17, which includes a Pressy and free access to the corresponding app.

The Aluminum Airship begins flight testing following FAA certification

Array
Gear  |  Projects


After a 70-year absence, it appears that a new rigid frame airship will soon be taking to the skies over California. Aeros Corporation, a company based near San Diego, has received experimental airworthiness certification from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to begin flight testing the Aeroscraft airship, and it appears that the company has wasted no time getting started. This fully rigid airship, dubbed the Aeroscraft.The Aeroscraft has been under development by Aeros Corp, since 2006, and the US Government has contributed some $35M for research, along with expertise in aerodynamics and control systems from NASA. The Aeroscraft's is made of aluminum and carbon fiber—and maintains its buoyancy with a series of gas-filled bladders. And unlike hybrid airships, the Aeroscraft doesn't require forward momentum to generate lift via a set of wings. It's all helium power. At 266 feet long and 97 feet wide, the Pelican prototype is just about half the size of what a full-scale Aeroscraft will be. If completed the Aeroscraft will measure more than 400 feet long and be capable of lifting 66 tons or more. The Aeroscraft is equipped with a series of pressurized helium tanks. When the pilot wants to increase altitude, non-flammable helium is released from the tanks through a series of pipes and control valves, into internal gas-bladders called helium pressure envelopes (HPEs). This increases the amount of lift the helium generates, reduces the craft's static heaviness, and allows it to rise. When the pilot wants to descend, the process is reversed. This allows the Aeroscraft to easily land and take on cargo or passengers without having to be tied down or add external ballast. Additionally, the Aeroscraft will be equipped with a trio of engines—one on each side and a third on the belly—and six turbofan engines to provide thrust and augment the COSH's lift, as well as aerodynamic tail-fin rudders and stumpy wing control surfaces, for high speed travel—that is, above 20 mph.

Jody Steel's Leg Drawings

Boring lecture? Many of us doodle in class, but artist Jody Steel eschews paper and uses her body as canvas instead. Her leg drawings were so impressive, she says, her professor at Emerson College in Boston hired her to illustrate a novel. You'll see why when you see her leg drawings - they're so good that they're often mistaken for tattoos.
"I really started because honestly, I didn't have any paper around," she told HuffPost Weird News. "I was drawing a lot in class, and people began to notice ... I'm just really pale and my skin is most equivalent to paper."

Chiu Chih’s Survival Kit for the Apocalyptic Future

Gear  |  Projects
The project is called “Voyage on the Planet” by designer Chiu Chih. A backpack of fresh air provided by a lone plant stored in the clear backpack. Clearly the series (and the design) is more on sending a strong message rather than proposing an actual thing that might be produced in the future.
"The design responds to a sense of curiosity towards this ever-changing environment – where old buildings are demolished and new modern ones continue to rise. Society and culture modify from one moment to the next, which in some cases Chiu Chih believes renders people hopeless, while for others it brings about hope and new expectations."
