    NASA Shows Off Latest Mars Suit Design
    Gear  |  Tech  
    After 233,431 total votes were cast, the "Technology" option has won NASA's Z-2 Spacesuit design challenge with just over 63% of the total vote. This design now will be incorporated into the final version of the suit, which is expected to be ready for testing by November 2014.
    NASA's Z-2 suit is the newest prototype in its next-generation spacesuit platform, the Z-series. With the agency laser focused on a path to Mars, work to develop the technologies astronauts one day will use to live and work on Mars has already begun. Each iteration of the Z-series will advance new technologies that one day will be used in a suit worn by the first humans to step foot on the Red Planet.
    There are many key advances to be found in the Z-2 suit when compared to the previous Z-1. The most significant is that the Z-1 had a soft upper torso and the Z-2 has a hard composite upper torso. This composite hard upper torso provides the much-needed long-term durability that a planetary Extravehicular Activity (EVA) suit will require. The shoulder and hip joints differ significantly based on extensive evaluations performed during the last two years with the Z-1 to look at different ways of optimizing mobility of these complex joints. Lastly, the boots are much closer in nature to those that would be found on a suit ready for space, and the materials used on the Z-2 are compatible with a full-vacuum environment. [ link ]

    The SaddleBaby($90) is a Child Shoulder Carrier that enables parents to carry their children directly on their shoulders hands-free. Yet, you need your hands always available, to hold bags, dog leashes, cell-phones, cameras...

The SaddleBaby shoulder carrier allows you for the first time to safely free your hands to do more and focus on spending quality time with your child. This shoulder carrier gives you the flexibility to go places that you couldn't navigate with a stroller."

    This Is What Happens When You Turn a Street Into a Slip n
    Gear  |  News  


    More than 95,000 people applied for just 360 tickets to slide on inflatable lilos down a soapy water slide in the city centre. The setup behind the slide was surprisingly simple, with Jerram using only plastic sheets and hay bales to construct the slide. Riders slid down on pool rafts for cushioning, and, to add a little extra slip, the water was mixed with dishwashing liquid.

    "Cast concrete dodecahedron housing 12 speaker drivers to give a total of 40W of sound projected in all directions. The speaker is left raw and hung from a bent plywood stand, ceiling hook or sat on a desktop. Most importantly it sounds great. In this case I used concrete because its cheap and would give the speaker a unique look."

    From June to December of last year, Gallup asked at least 600 people in each state, "Regardless of whether you will move, if you had the opportunity, would you like to move to another state, or would you rather remain in your current state?"
    After compiling responses, Gallup created the map and charts that you see above. The dark green areas indicate a more intense desire to relocate out of state. Fully 50% of respondents in Illinois wanted out.

    Harkins is a fantastic artist who transforms a beach into alternate realities by creating 3D sand art. Harkins told The Herald:
    We've seen other people doing stuff on beaches, but it's always been geometric, flat shapes, like a pattern, so we thought we'd get into the whole 3D thing," he said. "And I kind of like the fact that it disappears at the end of the day when the tide comes in. It makes it impermanent."

    Gear  |  Gadget  


    The new Nod gesture control ring($150) has been designed to seamlessly transforms your hand movements into commands, allowing you to control devices and applications simply with a wave of your hand. In essence, the ring is an input device, just like a mouse, keyboard, or trackpad. Slip it on your index finger. Wave your hand in the air. Swipe your thumb over its touch-control surface. All your gestures and motions can be used to control other consumer electronics. “We want you to be able to address any pixel of the digital world in the real world,” says Anush Elangovan, Nod Labs’ founder and CEO. Watch the video!
    The $150 gesture-control ring is packed with an accelerometer, gyroscope, compass and temperature sensor. The ring’s chunky business end responds to capacitive touch. Battery life is rated for 24 hours. There are 12 different band sizes, and Nod is waterproof.
