'Lumigrids' Lights Up the Road While Cycling at Night

read
LED projector helps cyclists avoid crashes by emitting a square grid on the ground ahead

Night cycling is about to get a whole lot safer (and more Tron-esque) thanks to Lumigrids, an LED projector developed by a team of engineers from Sichuan University. The device, which can be powered either by battery or by the rotation of the wheels, affixes to the bike's handlebars and projects a square grid on the ground ahead. As the road surface changes, the grid bends, curves and......read more

Why bother with an iPod when a Coby will do?

When I bought the first-generation iPhone, it took me all of four days to leave it in a cab, never to see it again. Meanwhile, the phone it was meant to replace, a not-remotely-smart Nokia brick dating from the previous century, had weathered a drop into a toilet and traveled with me to Europe and back -- twice. It still works. Sound familiar? Maybe not, but there's something to be said for......read more
