Posted in Apple by Darrin Olson on October 23rd, 2013

Apple iPad Air MiniOn Tuesday Apple announced the release of its fifth generation iPad mini, named the iPad Air as an offshoot naming of the Macboook line of products, confirming rumors of the anticipated release earlier in the month. The new iPad Air primarily features a new lighter, thinner design weighing in at just one pound and 7.5 mm thick (that’s less than a third of an inch to you metrically challenged folks).

Apple has also added in a faster A7, 64-bit chipset, where Apple states it doubles the processor speed with the same battery drain as its predecessor. They’ve also added dual WiFi antenna’s with MIMO, the high resolution (2048×1536) Retina display on a 9.7-inch screen and kept up to 10 hours of battery life.

Apple is releasing the iPad Air November 1st with prices starting at $499 for a 16GB …

Adobe prototype Android tablet running Air and Flash

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on May 5th, 2010

Not only did they demonstrate Flash running on phones like the Nexus One and Palm Pre at the Web 2.0 Expo, but Adobe also has a prototype Android tablet that, according to Zedomax, runs Flash and Air apps “flawlessly.” There aren’t any details on the tablet itself yet, but it seems that it does indeed run Air and Flash pretty nicely.

It runs Wired’s Air-based magazine app and plays YouTube videos without any problems. However, we would like to see it pushed a little harder. Hopefully we will learn more soon. You can check out a video below.

Indian students design an air-powered motorcycle

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on May 11th, 2009

The air-powered bike you see in the video above was designed by a team of engineering students from India. To help combat the ever-increasing pollution levels in the atmosphere, they designed themselves a working model that runs on air rather than gasoline.

Sure, it will only cover 18km/h. But at least this bike isn’t dirtying the air. It only emits Oxygen. This bike runs on air and emits air. That’s an eco-win all around. Now if they can just figure out how to get more out of it…

Black and Decker Thermal Leak Detector

Posted in Tools by Conner Flynn on December 4th, 2008

Black and Decker Thermal Leak DetectorWinter is here. And so, it’s time to fix those cold air leaks. That’s where Black and Decker’s Thermal Leak Detector comes in. Your current method of sliding your fingers down window seams until you feel cold air works okay, but the leak detector takes a high tech approach.

It detects temperature changes as small as a single degree. When it finds a trouble area where cold air is leaking in, a blue spotlight points you towards the problem. Pretty handy little tool for $40. Once it starts detecting leaks and you start sealing them, it will pay for itself in no time.

Gyration MotionSense Air Mouse

Posted in Mouse by Conner Flynn on September 24th, 2008

Gyration MotionSense Air MouseMovea’s Gyration Motionsense Air Mouse weighs in at under 4-ounces and has fancy gyros and accelerometers inside so you can control your computer as if you were playing your Wii, by waving it in mid-air without the need of a wizard’s spell. The mouse uses 2.4GHz wireless technology with a 100-foot range and it’s got customizable buttons and gesture recognition. Two rotational gyro axes and three linear accelerometer axes detect your movements and it starts up in 20ms.

But if all that scares you, or if your arm tires, it has a standard laser mouse option. The Gyration MotionSense Air Mouse will be available in October for $100. One day we will have one motion device to rule all of our devices and our arms will be strong, where they once were weak.

Scented MP3 Players that stink

Scented MP3 Players that stink
I think we all want an mp3 player that does more the just pump out tunes. In this case, these mp3 players give off various smells. They only feature 256MB of storage, but they make up for that by acting like a human air freshener, with scents like chocolate, rose, lemon, strawberry and some others.

No Pine Tree car freshener smell? I would have thought that was a given. Chances are you, like I, are not going to get one. On the other hand if you walk around with a foul cloud about you like Pigpen from the Peanuts cartoon, this might help clear your personal airspace a bit. And I wouldn’t expect these to mask any flatulence problems by being in your pocket.


Thanko Cooler USB Keyboard

Thanko Cooler USB Keyboard
The way I see it, if sweaty palms are a problem for you, you can either keep a rosin bag next to your keyboard like Baseball pitchers use or you can get yourself a keyboard with air vents. Thanko has just such a keyboard, so stop being nervous and sweating through your hands already.

The Thanko Cooler USB keyboard works just like those bowling lane machines, with air vents to keep your hands dry. The built-in fan has a switch so you can turn it off whenever you don’t need it. Not sure how loud it is, but it will cost you $62.

MacBook Air now $500 cheaper

MacBook Air now $500 cheaper
The MacBook Air may be slim, but it’s price is pretty hefty. Thankfully, Apple is now selling the super slim MacBook Air for $2598, that’s down from $3098.

The slashing of the price is due to a cut in price for two of the components. The Intel Core 2 Duo processor upgrade for the Air’s 1.8GHz went from $200 to $100. Also, the cost of the Flash memory based 64GB SDD drive upgrade from $999 to $599. Now, you can configure a 1.6GHz MacBook Air with a SDD Drive starting at $2398. Still pretty expensive, but that’s quite a savings.

AirWater Machine extracts gallons of fresh water from thin air

AirWater Machine extracts gallons of fresh water from thin airWe all know it’s coming. That future Mad Max apocalyptic world where the only things that matter are gas for getting around the wasteland and water to survive. Are you going to be one of the helpless or one of the new kings? If you have water, you have power. I won’t even get into the zombies. The point is with this Klimatec Base 1 AirWater Machine you have power.

It extracts gallons of water right out of the air. It will give you a whopping five gallons of fresh H2O every 24 hours. It even cleans the extracted water with a carbon filter, runs it through an ultraviolet light chamber to kill bacteria, and then serves it up to you hot or cold. It offers a solar power option too, but you’ll need powerful solar cells, since it requires 480W to operate. No price info yet.

Nose Mask Pit fights allergens

Nose Mask Pit fights allergens
Those with severe allergies can’t do much to avoid them without wearing a face mask, which no one wants to do. This little device should help and it will barely be noticable. They’re basically small air filters that sit up inside your nose.

I imagine they are not very comfortable, but they are very discrete. Only a small clear band is visible at the base of your nostrils. You can get a pack of them for around $14 and they’ll be a real life saver for those with severe allergies. My only concern would be that they might get stuck up my nose.


Eclosion pump up sofa concept

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on April 22nd, 2008

Eclosion pump up sofa concept
The Eclosion pump-up sofa is an interesting take on the futon/sofa-bed concept. Closed it looks like a yellow and black torpedo, opened up, it looks somewhat like a sofa. One side has a hidden air bladder that can be pumped up, which turns it from a small bed to a sofa that can hold a couple of people.

It was designed by Olivier Gregoire and yes it is basically just a fancy air filled futon, but I’m pretty sure that if it were available, the price would be un-futon like. Judging by looks alone, it seems like it would feel pretty weird just like a futon as well.

A moped that runs on fresh air

A moped that runs on fresh air
A former sheepherder and current rocket scientist/inventor Jem Stansfield, took a couple of air canisters that are typically used by firefighters for their breathing gear, and strapped them on a moped. The result is an air-powered bike that spits out cleaner exhaust then the air that it initially takes in.

Both compressed air cylinders drive a pair of rotary air engines that propel the bike to a top speed of 18mph. It will only go about 7 miles until more air is required. Lucky for him, he has a local dive shop where he can fill up and he’s good to go. It’s people like this that tick off the oil companies, which I find awesome.

Intelli Cool: Outdoor air conditioning

Intelli Cool: Outdoor air conditioning
Close the door, you’re letting the cool air out. It used to be a bad thing, when you heard a parent say that. But apparently, there are those who actually want to cool the outside with an air conditioner. The Intelli Cool is tauted as the first ever outside air conditioning unit that uses a special water evaporation technology. The fans attached to it cool the air in your nearby surroundings.

But the fun doesn’t end there. It also provides bright light so you can enjoy yourself on those not so sunny days. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of info otherwise. It seems fairly ridiculous to me and it looks…freakish.

Breeza 4-stage deodorizing toilet seat

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on March 23rd, 2008

Breeza 4-stage deodorizing toilet seat
At long last a new development in toilet seat technology. Sure, there are a number of products that fight odors in the modern outhouse that we call the bathroom, but most of those are sprays that smell almost as offensive as the bomb you just inflicted on the citizens of toilet-town. This solution is built right into seat.

Once you plump your butt cheeks down onto the toilet seat and get ready to play bombs away, it knows what you’re about to do and it will begin the decontamination deodorization process that captures odors, purifies and freshens the air. The mysterious process includes fans, filters and fragranced vents. If your bomb bay doors don’t like the cold, there’s a heated version available. No need to wear a Haz-Mat suit ever again when entering your throne-room/library.
