Russian artist Julia Borovaya has created Solaris, a tank of neon green slime that reacts to the thoughts of the participant in an interactive art exhibit. Facilitated by an EEG headset placed on the participant’s head, Solaris interprets brainwaves to create fantastic visuals that dance around the slimy surface.

Comments Off on PhoneDrone turns your smartphone into an autonomous flying object

Ready to buy a drone but feeling like the cost is a bit prohibitive? You may be able to reduce the cost by turning your powerful smartphone into a PhoneDrone . Simply dock your phone in the drone and watch it go. What better incentive not to crash it? Designed by Indiana-based xCraft, the company is the same that gave us the X PlusOne drone, the PhoneDrone can be flown in a couple of ways. First, using a free app on your phone, users can enter a “ flight path which the PhoneDrone will then autonomously follow.” The second way is to use another smartphone or tablet and keep that one with them and use it to manually pilot the drone via WiFi – they’ll also be able to watch live streaming video from the drone’s phone camera while doing so. The drone works with iPhone 4s and up as well as Android phones. The PhoneDrone is available through Kickstarter for $199. + xCraft + PhoneDrone Kickstarter Image via xCraft Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: android drone , DIY drone , drone app , drone for smartphones , iphone drone , personal drone , PhoneDrone , smartphone drone , wifi drone , wireless drone

Comments Off on The world’s first plantable coffee cup replenishes local flora

In America alone, over 145 billion disposable coffee cups are discarded annually. People’s coffee habits have led to a startling amount of waste, much of which fails to end up in recycling bins. Then again, they can only be reused  a couple of times before they end up in landfills too. Enter the seeded cup: made of post-consumer paper, these compost-certified cups have organic native wildflower seeds embedded in them, so they can be planted after use to help replenish barren soil and attract/feed indigenous local pollinators. A Kickstarter campaign is currently underway to fund their production—read on to learn more!
