Charge All Your Devices With a Solar-Powered Bonsai Tree - Hot Penguin If you’ve got a lot of gadgets–and who doesn’t these days?–you know that it can be difficult to keep track of all of their different chargers, not to mention hard to find outlet space to plug them in. One stylish former Kickstarter project aims to solve that problem while also beautifying your space. The electree+ is billed as “part sculpture, part appliance” because it mixes form and function, offering a practical product–a multi-unit solar charger–with a beautiful form. The product was inspired by bonsai trees and nature’s fractal patterns, with 27 square silicon solar panels on each tree and a 14,000mAh internal battery that stores enough power to recharge an iPhone nine times or an iPad2 twice. Power is provided through two USB ports and a Qi wireless charging zone that works with most smart phones and can be adapted to work with iPhones. If that all sounds (and looks) great to you, check out the their website where you can pick up your very own Electree today. Related posts: Comments

Found Photography » Tips for Buying a Camera on Ebay I spend more time than I would care to admit watching cameras on Ebay. I have a feeling that my knowledge of cameras has come as much from Ebay, as it has from anywhere else. Why? Because when you are considering making a purchase, you do research. Research builds knowledge, and before you know it you are an expert on obscure cameras that haven’t been in production for decades. I thought I would share some of the things that I look for in a camera on ebay, before I make a purchase. First of all I want to give a shout out an Ebay seller named certo6. If you can’t buy a camera from certo6, you are going to drop down a notch into the deep sea of the unknown. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. If you follow these camera auction tips eventually you will end up with a great camera at a fair price.

ReBelle Girls CES Roundup: 16 Cool Gadgets from Sunday at the Vegas Tech Show It’s tough to numerically pinpoint which days of CES are which. If you’re in the tech media, Monday’s really the first full day of CES, but you show up on Sunday (or earlier) because there are a few things on Sunday; if you’re a tradesperson, Tuesday’s really the first full day of CES. Actually, Tuesday is the first official day of CES, seeing that the show this year runs from January 7 to January 10. January 7 is the first day the show floor is open. A lot of stuff happens before the show floor opens, though, and Monday is the first full day that a bunch of stuff is officially scheduled starting first thing in the morning and stretching well into the night.

The Big Picture They got their start under street lamps, singing doo-wop and soul for family, friends, and neighbors in the Village, a historically black neighborhood of West Newton. That was decades ago. Brothers Walter and Stephen Cooper and a cousin, Richard Evans, have never stopped singing. Айвита.ру: Создатели Lumoback представили Lumo Lift Компания Lumo Body Tech на выставке CES 2014 представила еще один продукт, предназначенный для слежения за осанкой — Lumo Lift. В отличие от ее же Lumoback, новичок проследит конкретно за тем, чтобы его владелец не сутулился и не опускал плечи. Устройство к тому же еще и дешевле, чем «оригинал». несколько месяцев назад протестировала Lumoback и нашла, что свою работу гаджет делает очень хорошо, неумолимо и безжалостно — если у вас хватит духу его носить, осанку он вам поправит. Lumo Lift представляет собой маленький (25.5x46x7 мм) гаджет, который с помощью магнитной клипсы крепится к одежде или нижнему белью. Обещано, что общий принцип работы Lumo Lift останется прежним — гаджет будет предупреждать о том, что осанка далека от идеальной, обычной и не очень сильной (в отличии от Lumoback) вибрацией. И да, Lumo Lift можно использовать вместе с Lumoback, так как гаджеты хоть и похожи, однако не замещают друга. Стекло Gorilla Glass научили убивать бактерии In "Медицина и здоровье"

Birdsong Photography 6 | Unlock Your Bike With Your Phone, With This Smartphone-Controlled U-Lock Here is a basic fact of modern life: You're more likely to lose your keys than a smartphone, which would be like losing a limb to a growing portion of the population. That's one reason that smart locks--locks that will open from a smartphone--are gaining in popularity. BitLock, a smartphone-controlled Bluetooth bike lock, is bringing that trend to the cycling world, where smart locks have yet to take a foothold. Created by electrical engineer Mehrdad Majzoobi, the BitLock is purportedly the first keyless bike lock tailored to the peer-to-peer bikesharing community, where the ability to easily grant someone else access to a bike is paramount. "I come from a hardware security background, and came to look at this problem from a security point of view first--looking at the implications of using smartphones as access control or keys," he says. For most cyclists, a regular U-lock is just fine--and a lot cheaper than the BitLock's $140 expected retail price.
