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.

Climbing 103 flights of stairs without collapse is a noteworthy achievement for any human being, but when said human only has one leg, it’s nothing short of miraculous. Thirty-one year-old Zac Vawter lost his right leg in a motorcycle accident, but he didn’t let that sidetrack his life. Wearing a bionic leg that’s controlled by electrical impulses from his brain, Vawter recently climbed 103 floors of Chicago’s iconic Willis Tower , becoming the first person ever to complete the task wearing a mind-controlled prosthetic limb.

Comments Off on The O2 Pursuit is an Air-Powered Motorcycle that Can Travel 62 Miles on a Single Charge

Developed by Dean Benstead , a graduate RMIT University in Melbourne, the O2 Pursuit is a pretty extraordinary bike. With a range of about 62 miles per ‘tank’ and top speeds of 87 mph, the modified Yamaha WR250R is powered entirely by compressed air. A canister with a compression of 3000 PSI, the same as those used by scuba divers, appears to power the bike as effectively as many electric motors—and Benstead’s technology has been nominated for a James Dyson Award .
