Aura: wirelessly powered Christmas lights

Gear  |  Projects
Aura is a wirelessly powered Christmas lights. No Charging. No Batteries. Select the WiFi Aura Power Ring and you can control your lights from the app on your smartphone. Turn all lights on and off, set schedules, and timers on the go.
"From the beginning, Aura was designed to be a safer Christmas light. By removing the wires that short circuit, heat, or spark in your tree, Aura eliminates the potential fire hazards of traditional Christmas lights. For even more safety, we only use LEDs which produce close to zero heat."
They are looking to raise $50,000 on Kickstarter to out them into production. Unfortunately they will not be available for this Christmas, but if they get funded then they will be available next year.

I lived with the monks for about a week, and this picture reflects the peaceful, almost heavenly atmosphere that characterizes this place. The Monastery is almost 4,000 meters high, and I had to climb almost 500 meters more to get this panorama. This place is a touch of heaven. (Photo and caption by Natalia Luzuriaga)"

How To Fold The World's Farthest-Flying Paper Airplane

Gear  |  DIY
The paper craft was designed by John Collins. In February 2012, John Collins, a.k.a The Paper Airplane Guys, broke the all-time distance record for paper airplane flight by throwing his airplane at a total distance of 226 feet and 10 inches.
Collins' new book, The New World Champion Paper Airplane Book: Featuring the World Record-Breaking Design, with Tear-Out Planes to Fold and Fly:
Paper airplanes embody the scientific method. Every throw is an experiment. It's a hobby that begs the paper pilot to understand ever more in order to excel. Hypothesis, experiment design, trial, and results—it's all built into every plane and every throw. To play with a paper airplane is to dabble in science, whether you know it or not.
We have a number of global issues confronting us. Global energy shortages, food shortages, water shortages, and something people are calling global warming are all worrisome. These problems will have answers that only science can provide. We have no spare brains on the planet. We need everyone thinking about these challenges in a rigorous way.
Imagine this: a world of people playing with science, who get up every morning, focus on what's good, and imagine how to make more of that. You can call me a dreamer. I don't mind. You don't have to believe a word of what I say. Just make a paper airplane and experience how exhilarating that feels. We're born makers. When you make something, anything from a pie to a pencil drawing, it's like waking a dormant part of you. The world shifts slightly. You can feel it, and it feels good.

Lunar Mission One, a Private Crowdfunded Mission to send an unmanned robotic to the moon

Gear  |  Projects
Lunar Mission One is an private crowdfunded mission to "send an unmanned robotic landing module to the South Pole of the Moon – an area unexplored by previous missions."
"We’re going to use pioneering technology to drill down to a depth of at least 20m – 10 times deeper than has ever been drilled before – and potentially as deep as 100m. By doing this, we will access lunar rock dating back up to 4.5 billion years to discover the geological composition of the Moon, the ancient relationship it shares with our planet and the effects of asteroid bombardment. Ultimately, the project will improve scientific understanding of the early solar system, the formation of our planet and the Moon, and the conditions that initiated life on Earth."
This project is currently up for funding on kickstarter (get £271,836 till now).
