I think this one is pretty cool:

New Camera Technology Could End Movie Piracy
ATLANTA, June 27, 2006 -- A prototype device that effectively stops digital cameras from working in a specific area by flooding their image sensors with white light could mean an end to movie piracy, photographic espionage and other invasions of privacy involving digital still or video cameras, its creators said.

The device, produced by a team in the interactive and intelligent computing division of the Georgia Institute of Technology's College of Computing (COC), uses off-the-shelf equipment -- camera-mounted sensors, lighting equipment, a projector and a computer -- to scan for, find and neutralize digital cameras in a given area. Team members said the system works by looking for the reflectivity and shape of the image-producing sensors used in digital cameras.

I found a self stirring mug where you don't have to worry about a spoon. You just press the button and it stirs your drink for you. It reminds me of a blender that doesn't need to be plugged in. It might be a nice gift for the person on the go.

Evaporative cooling shirt. When backpacking in hot weather, I often stop to wet my shirt in a stream. The cooling from the evaporation as it dries is wonderful. If a shirt had little water "tanks" on the shoulders, a shirt could be kept wet and keep cooling for hours, perhaps. They would have to be lightweight, and they would have to release the water slowly. Even better would be tanks with an adjustable rate of flow, so you could have the shirt wetted at the same rate is was drying.

SEE BABIES BETTER! :) lol...Stroll-Lights are lights that you can put on your baby-stroller so that you and your baby can be seen at night.

It's basically a string of illuminated wire, called, "Electroluminescent Wire". In fact, you could use this for just about anything, for jogging, bicycles, trailers, backpacks. You could put them on your boat when you go night-fishing.

Stroll-Lights are available in two lengths 3' and 6', and can be combined into longer lengths of 6' and 9'. They're available in colors of white, red, pink, lime, orange, and aqua. They come with clips to attach to your stroller. The lights are powered by 2 AA batteries, and is waterproof and produce almost no heat.

That link is to a video about a device that is...well, crazy to say the least! Not crazy bad, but a good kind of crazy. It's for a Bluetooth device for your car, you put it on your car key and when you extend your key to put into your ignition it is activated and blocks your cell phone from sending/receiving calls and text messages.

The only call it can make in this mode is 911 and/or a number that a parent or "phone admin" adds to a list for the device for emergencies. The device can also be configured to a GPS system to track the speed you are driving at as well as traffic light violations.

If anything is violated or if a person driving tries to send a text message it will block the message and send a text message to a parent and tell that that their son/daughter is trying to text or call while driving, thus they can be scolded when they get home rather that being called by a parent (defeating the purpose).

Personally I think this little bit of technology is a pretty good idea. Just the other day I was driving to the store to pick up some milk (milk is good) and I was almost ran into by a lady who was...you guessed it...talking on her freeking cell phone. Waiting to leave Torpins I saw at least three people on their phones driving and one of them was a State Patrol officer. If auto companies made these an optional feature in cars and trucks it would probably cut down on a lot of wrecks and/or fender benders.

When I watched this video I thought the device would cost about $150 or more but actually they are expecting it will actually be less than $50 when it is released (a beta version of the device and software in about 6 months).

So there is the blog I have created, I think it is well constructed actually...or not....

Mercedes-Benz split view LCD
(http://www.popsci.com/cars/article
/2008-12/mercedes-benz-splitview-
clever-lcd-screen-keeps-driver-
informed-passenger-entertained)

Picture this: You're motoring down the highway, following route guidance on the navigation screen, when the guy in the passenger seat decides he wants to watch Raising Arizona on DVD. Mercedes-Benz and Bosch jointly devised a novel gizmo can satisfy both viewing requests, without a sword and the smarts of Solomon. It's a dual-view LCD monitor system called, elegantly enough, Splitview.

Splitview is a dashboard-mounted display screen that allows driver and passenger to view two different images simultaneously. Here's how it works: The eight-inch active matrix, backlit color monitor nests a second image feed on adjacent pixels. A masking filter divides the combined image such that, depending on seating position, only one set of the pixels can be seen.

With Splitview, the driver has access to information from Mercedes's control and display system, called COMAND, on the display, while the front passenger can use a remote control to watch DVDs, TV channels or music videos, though the car's speakers or via headphones. Mercedes-Benz says it will introduce Splitview in the company's flagship S-Class sedan in mid 2009.

Parents are always worried their child are calling or texting while driving, well now they don't have to worry. There is a new bluetooth set that is built into one's car key where when the key is in the ignition it puts a lock on your cell phone so you cannot use it. It allows the driver to call 911 or any other number the parents choose, other than that they can't use the phone while driving.This new technology can also be used to monitor the drivers driving methods, like speeding, abrupt stopping or driving through stop signs. A professor made this so parents would have to worry so much and also to keep young drivers from being distracted.

I think the new digital camera that is a touch screen. those are going to be nice because they have a nicer view and a bigger screen because of the buttons you have on the camera that will be gone. and also they have more mega pixals on them. They are also putting HD on the cameras when you make a movie. I think those are pretty nice

I found that there is many new cutting edge robots constantly being made. They have many human like qualities making it almost scary to know that they are completely robotic!

There's a new device out that is both a remote and a phone for a household. You can use it as a phone but it also controls things in the house like lights, television, radio, etc. It's a phone and a remote in one.

Google recently announced that Chrome google had been released out of beta, with the 1.0 version having been made available for download for the Windows operating system, while support for Linux and Mac OS X is still in the works, according to the Web giant.

Basicly what the chrome google is , is a browser like fire fox and safari. I think that google is eager to see how the browser is going to work, and how many will subscribe and use this browser, im sure there will be plenty.

The new Cowon O2 portable multimedia player seems pretty cool. Its said to be one of the first of its kind to actually have a good picture and sound to watch movies on. Even people that hate watching movies on small screens did not mind watching movies all this cool little device with great resolution.

There is a lady who lost her eye in a crash and now she is working to make a bionic eye. This eye will have a video camera in it. She said it give a new meaning to Point of View.

The vox amPlug is a great gift to give someone for christmas. This is a tiny amplifyer and it plugs into an electric guitar that plugs into headphones so you can rock out to yourself.

There is a feature on the iphone that if you put it up to the radio or your cd player. and play a song you dont know what it is called, it will look for the song and tell you what it is called. I thought that was really cool when I first saw it.

Ashton's COOLPIX S60 is a camera where you can look at your pictures with your fingertips. And you can write on the picture, with your finger also, and design it the way you want, and if you have a picture of more than one person and you want to see them upfront, then just touch the face and it zooms and focuses on that one person. It's a pretty neat little camera, I would like one for Christmas, if I could, but maybe some other day right? We'll just have to see!

New Science Tech is talking about self cleaning windows. They are using butterfly wings as there muse, their waffle like micro structure prevents water from spreading out as a result it beads and rolls off taking dirt along with it.They use a polymer to create the mold and then MTEOS is added to create the glass. They plan to use it in windshields for cars, that make my life easier.

I found something kinda neat called the "Jollbot," it is a robot that can leap like a grasshopper and roll like a ball. They are going to use this robot for space exploration to jump over rough terrain, and roll over smoother terrain, because it is the first robot to do so. They are going to use this robot to explore planets and moons. Because it can form into a spherical formation it can roll any direction and not get stuck in potholes or anything. It has a cage-like surface and it weighs less than two pounds. Its jumping is controlled by electrical motors and it mimics the jumping formation of that of a grasshopper. Scientists are currently researching how it can power itself in space.

So the other day i was watching CNN news from the NYC room and they had a hologram of a news lady from clear across the U.S. it was sooo cool it was one of the first times they have ever done that, for those of you that dont know what a hologram is its basically almost cloning yourself threw a computer projecter. She was there and looked just like a really person it was awesome! but if you touched her you would just go threw her it was one of the coolest things I've ever seen, I have seen it in movies but not in real life it was sweet.

I found an article about a transparent toaster. It lets you watch your bread as they toast. It should help reduce the amount of burnt toast in the mornings :)

Well I think that the motoskimobile will be a good idea because that you ride a motorbike in the snow then there are the ski on it so that you can be able to go through the snow better. Its like riding in the summer time but now it is winter. i thought this was a cool invention

I found an article about a scientist named Paul Connolly from the University of Manchester, UK, who created an ice cloud chamber that allows physecists to study the processes in the formation of a snowflake. This study could help predict when snow is likely to fall!
