Comments Off on Can Americans Rediscover Their Love of Rail Travel?

“Trainsforming America” is a new documentary that takes a hard look at why America has fallen behind the rest of the world when it comes to properly investing in an efficient passenger rail system. Filmmakers Rebecca Autumn Sansom and Katie Chen interview rail riders, experts and policymakers to find out what people think about the future of passenger rail in the country. Chen travels to Europe to experience their passenger rail system and compares the ease of train travel on the other side of the Atlantic to America’s antiquated rail system . Once the envy of the world, U.S. rail has fallen into disrepair and forces most Americans to rely on overloaded roads and overburdened airports.

Comments Off on Philips Unveils the Hue: The World’s Smartest LED Bulb

The light bulb has come a long way since Edison introduced the carbon filament back in 1879. Even within the last couple of years, we have seen improvements in the modern LED light, including the futuristic smart-phone controlled LIFX and Lighting Science Group’s bulbs that can be controlled via smartphone. Now, we can add the Phillips hue , a new web-enabled LED system that will be offered exclusively through Apple. Each hue kit will contain three bulbs that are able to fit into any standard socket, and a bridge that connects them through wireless routers. Users will be able to control the hue by iOS or Android phones, allowing them to customize their home lighting experiences, change the hue’s color, and manage daily schedules for maximum efficiency.
