Comments Off on The Orée Board is a Wireless Wooden Computer Keyboard that Mixes Tradition with Technology

Technology and tradition combine in this beautiful, handcrafted wireless keyboard, known as the Orée Board. The Orée Board was created by the French technology entrepreneur Julien Salanave , who worked with a traditional craftsman known as a “Compagnon” in southern France to create this keyboard out of a single piece of wood. We love the simple style of the Orée Board and think it would be a great companion for any tablet, smart phone or PC.

Comments Off on Canadian Scientists Use Scotch Tape To Turn Semiconductors into Superconductors

A team from the University of Toronto has developed a new technique that transforms semiconductors into superconductors using the most simple of products — Scotch tape. The international team of physicists used the household product  to induce high-temperature superconductivity in a semiconductor for the first time, and they believe it could pave the way for new devices with greater energy-efficiency. If Scotch tape is the latest breakthrough product in the world of physics, surely it’s only a matter of time before Blu-Tac steps up to the plate, right?
