Batteries are used to run almost every electrical device we have, including our indispensable mobile devices. Imagine if batteries had never been invented, we would be solely dependent on wall sockets and wired technology. Batteries are not, however, that kind to the environment, and they have been known to suffer catastrophic failure occasionally. Sony has […]
As futuristic designs go, what looks most impressive would probably be see-through glass designs. If you’ve ever seen the conceptual glass phone design, you would know what I’m talking about. Now, with enough funding, this glass keyboard and mouse design will be coming to you through this Kickstarter page.
3D printers have been around for a while, being used for all kinds of reasons, including to print chocolate. A recent development on our beloved 3D printer however, is that it is now being used to create a material that is “bone-like” and researchers say it could be used to mend your bones.

While not a problem with large displays, as they are hardly moved around, glare can be rather disadvantageous for our handheld devices. To solve this problem of glare, Nippon Electric Glass Co Ltd has developed an “invisible glass” that exhibited last […]
There have been many ways people have tried to add the sense of smell to what we see and hear through the TV or monitor. Imagine being able to smell a field of lavender, or that delicious steak being prepared. Perhaps to some it might sound like a bad idea, but maybe it’s just able […]
There have been many modern advances that have tried to make technology more accessible to the disabled. Certainly, there have been some companies that have tried to design specialised touchphones for the blind, and even proper laptops with Braille keys are much too expensive and rarely very useful in everyday situations.
