How many people do you know who regret their tattoo? You grow up, you dump (or get dumped), or maybe you picked a tattoo "artist" that learned their craft in prison using ballpoint pens and a sharpened paper clip. At that point, your choices are: deal with it, get it covered up, or get shot with lasers to take it off. ThisIsWhyImBroke.com - StumbleUpon. Will Smart Contact Lenses Be the Bluetooth Headsets of the Future? Imagine instant access to the latest market segment information at a meeting, or seeing the fourth quarter earnings for a company in (literally) the blink of an eye.
Although it might sound like something from a science fiction novel, scientists at the University of Washington are working on solar powered contact lenses with transparent LEDs embedded onto the lens. This technology could be applied in countless ways, from health monitoring to text translation right in front of the wearer's eyes. In 2006, my team at SKD designed a very similar concept for our "Cautionary Visions" project. Analyzing current trends in technology and popular culture, from emerging demands for constant connection to the increasingly blurred boundaries between natural and artificial, my designers imagined the dark alleys down which these trends could take us. Now it seems like our idea might become a reality. But I haven't asked that question in years. Panoramic Camera Ball - Atomik - We Find The Awesome For You.

Help We Are Atomik grow! The Panoramic Camera Ball takes a panoramic picture of it’s surroundings, but only when thrown through the air. The Panoramic Camera Ball is made up of 36, 2 megapixel cell phone cameras packed inside a bright green, 3D-printed frame. There’s a full explanation in the video below, as well as a few good examples of what the camera can do: Source – HackADay via Jonas Pfeil.

With the increasing use of portable data devices, keeping your data private has become quite hard. I often forget and leave my USB at the office or at friends’ houses, fortunately I don’t have much private data on my USB drive but a lot of people do. For those people the Crypteks USB Drive is the perfect solution. The Crypteks USB Drive comes in a very stylish cylinder shaped package that not only provides digital security but also physical security.
The physical security is provided by a five ring combination lock, each ring contains 26 letters and one symbol for a total of 14,348,907 combinations. If someone got their hands on your Crypteks USB drive, it’ll take them quite a long time to just open the case and get to the USB stick which protects your data with another layer of security in the form of a 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption, which is a U.S. approved standard for up to “Top-Secret” data encryption.

IBM scientists unveil Racetrack memory chip prototype. 6 December 2011Last updated at 13:58 GMT Images of the Racetrack chip show a single column of 40 nanowires, and close-ups of the wires.
Details of the first real-world test of a new memory chip technology have been revealed by IBM scientists. The demonstration involved Racetrack memory - a system which stores information as magnetic patterns on tiny wires. IBM said the technology promised faster data access speeds than were possible using hard drives or flash disks. However it faces a challenge from other next-generation memory technologies being explored by other companies. Speedy The team - based in New York, California and Taiwan - has been working on the process since 2008. The prototype chip consists of 256 Racetrack cells. Each cell consisted of a single magnetic nanowire, 60-240 nanometres wide and 15-20 nanometres thick.
Electric pulses are applied to the wires creating "domain walls" with "regions" between them. Minimalist Multi-Touch Glass Keyboard And Mouse. Here’s a cool project from kickstarter.com by Jason Giddings, a multi-touch glass keyboard and mouse.
No this keyboard is not made by Apple but it does use the same less is more mentality. The multi-touch glass keyboard and mouse are currently in the concept phase and pledges are being taken to make them a reality. The mouse and keyboard looks very elegant and modern and are sure to be a conversation piece at the office. They have been designed to make use of existing proven technology and don’t contain any moving parts. The devices are wireless and will come with rechargeable Lithium Polymer batteries, Bluetooth support, and sound and light which can be disabled. The multi-touch keyboard contains all the keys you’d find in a traditional keyboard but they’re drawn on the back side of the glass, so they won’t rub off over time.
