How Technology Is Transforming The Kitchen & Making Us All Chefs

But what we don't realise is just how much it has affected our personal space. With more and more people in the world, there's less space to work with and so more efficient means of using this space is needed. Of all these spaces, the kitchen has undergone the greatest change. What was the home of cookbooks and large unwieldy stoves has now become sleeker and better designed.

Now, you're more likely to see iPads and other devices helping you with your cooking, brewing coffee for you and room temperature. Below, we gathered the best ways to take advantage of this as well as giving you a glimpse into what might feature in the kitchen of the future.

YouTube dropped a little bombshell of a news announcement yesterday on their blog when they released two new changes for embedded videos.

How to Remove YouTube Logo & Branding from Embedded Videos & Player

The first is the addition of HD Preview Images for videos higher than 480p. But the potentially-huge news is that YouTube has enabled publishers to remove the YouTube logo from embedded videos. New HD YouTube Preview/Thumbnail Images First things first, the HD Preview Images. Which would probably be pretty cool news on its own if it weren't dropped into a post with the other piece of information. But now that changes. That is a huge improvement. YouTube's Logo ► Now Optional on Embedded YouTube Videos This is the news that will get most of the attention, rightfully so.

While it might, on the surface, sound like a small change, it has big implications. Enterprise level online video platforms have been selling their product for years by reminding customers that if they go with YouTube they'll have that logo on all their content. ? ... src=" ...

Check Out This Awesome iPhone-Compatible iWatch Concept

Now there are products like the I’m Watch and multiple wearable cases that turn the iPod Shuffle into a high-tech ticker. But if none of the current offerings are doing it for you, maybe this one will. The iWatch 2 is an iOS-compatible wristwatch that has enough features to make James Bond himself jealous… As the name suggests, the iWatch 2 is ADR Studio‘s second iteration of the product. If the name sounds familiar, it’s because these are the same guys behind the SJ iPhone concept we showed you earlier this year. If its sharp looks don’t impress you, then maybe its feature set will. Keep in mind that the iWatch 2 is only in the concept phase, and there’s no word on if it will ever materialize. If available, would you buy an iWatch 2?

Motorized Inversion Table. Since we live in an era where most things are motorized or at least have some sort of robotics function built-in, don’t you think it makes sense to have a Motorized Inversion Table as well for fitness buffs?

Motorized Inversion Table

This rather unique inversion table will be able to gently recline and return to its upright position at the touch of a button. Just what benefits does inversion therapy bring to the table? For starters, it helps alleviate back pain through the decompression of the spine, helping relieve pressure on nerves as well as realign the ligaments that support the back. There is also an adjustable rotation control to make sure you are able to achieve your ideal angle of incline, even being completely inverted if you will, in a single, smooth motion driven by the quiet motor. In addition to that, the vented, injection-molded plastic bed will further reduce friction in order for the body to readjust itself comfortably. The asking price?

Nine amazing wearable gadgets for sporty geeks

For instance, an athlete would prefer such a gadget that does not break easily and has a robust body. Same way a swimmer would prefer a waterproof or water resistant gadget that must have a waterproof and tight shield on it.

Here is a description of some wearable gadgets. 1. Wav wireless mp3 player is a cool gadget for swimmers. 2. The Nike + iPod sport gadget is meant for runners and athletes. 3.

When you mention the word “robot”, what comes into your mind?

Robot baby sends shivers down the spine

Most of us would have thought of characters from Transformers, or even Go-Bots (if you know what I am talking about, then you’re about in the same age bracket as me), and perhaps even the Terminator. Those who think that Chucky is scary enough might want to check out this particular robot that mimics a human baby, positively sending chills down my spine when I look at the YouTube video of it in “action”. Created by the UK’s Chris Clarke, this robotic baby will writhe around, struggling in its crib in such a convincing manner that we have taken yet another step closer to the uncanny valley.

This is one baby that I hope it will never grow up, and someone might just make a new genre in movies – techno-horror, where robots like these go on a murdering spree, only to have good ol’ Chucky intervene and save the day for us humans. I won’t diss those dolls anymore, I promise, as there is an even greater nemesis out there now. Source. MAKE. Smartphone Booklet by Ilshat Garipov.

Smartphone Booklet by Ilshat Garipov

Yes these tiny, near invisible objects can revolutionize the bio medical, optical and electronic fields so designer Ilshat Garipov put pen to paper and came up with the Smartphone Booklet – a disposable phone as thin as a cardboard made possible by switching from traditional silicon to nanoparticles. The Booklet unfolds like a pamphlet with each side representing a commonly used application or function. Manufacturers can cut it to any size and once it’s worn out, just recycle it. Don’t worry about private information because everything is served from a cloud. How close is this to reality? Designer: Ilshat Garipov.

Flotspotting: Jose Hurtado's Tandem with a Twist. Posted by Ray | 20 Jan 2012 | Comments (15) Spanish designer José Hurtado started out as an architect before shifting his focus to industrial design.

Flotspotting: Jose Hurtado's Tandem with a Twist

Among the projects in his newly-launched portfolio, one project in particular jumped out: the "Twist" bicycle concept. Twist [is] not just a bike, [it] is a union between people. Sometimes a change of direction in your life helps you to find yourself. With Twist, the change of direction will lead you to meet and enjoy the people, like you, who love cycling, mobility and [a healthy lifestyle]. The bike is designed to be reversible; hence, the unusual shape of the frame and positioning of the handlebars and saddle.

The bike frame has a single arm that holds the wheel on two points, thus preventing movement and anchoring it securely. Thus, the hubless wheels aren't just for show: they serve as a point of attachment for a second frame, such that the tandem bike becomes a mirror image of itself when viewed in profile: Draco Design DRACO IV Case for iPhone 4/4S Review. It seems like every day there’s a new case out for the iPhone, and today is no different.

We’ve been over this aluminum bumper case road before, so we kind of know what to expect here, and the Draco IV falls comfortably within in the status quo for the most part: Assembly Like most other aluminum case designs, this is a two-part case, one piece enclosing three sides of the phone, and one long piece finishing off the remaining side. Fit & Finish Reception General Use Product Information. iConvert Lets The iPad Scanning Frenzy Begin. By David Ponce I’m being overly enthusiastic here. I mean, lets face it: who still has paper?

… Well, ok, maybe a couple of you still do, and I guess that’s why the iConvert exists. I guess my point is that no one is excited about paper; it’s just one of those figments of a distant past we still have to live with. And for as long as this is the case, and people are still buying iPads, there might be a place for this portable scanning machine. It’s $150 and ships in February.
