Sciences 10 inventions that could have changed the world

Posted this video following a chat with Brown Beard just the other day. We were discussing how Tesla could have released his wireless electrical current tech to allow us to charge up our power hungry gadgets on the move … imagine how liberating that would be!


Gear-heads Assemble! The Olloclip 3-in-1 iPhone Lens!

So over on Kickstarter you’ll find a whole bunch of fun, interesting and darn right ingenious gadgets. Here’s a little gadget most of you will love…the Olloclip 3-in-1 iPhone lens. I picked one of these guys up a few weeks back and thought I’d share the love and let you see what all the fuss is about.

Here’s a macro shot of a tiny spider I found on a recent trip to Scotland. Normally you’d need to whip out your dSLR, macro lens and tripod/steady hand to shoot this. Thankfully it’s now possible with a simple little attachment for the iPhone…thank you Olloclip! Good work Patrick O’Neill and Chong Pak – keep it up.

Major MacBook Pro upgrade


So the WWDC (World Wide Developers Conference) kicked off this week with some major news. iOS 6.0 previews, OSX Mountain Lion, MacBook Air updates, MacPro updates and the much deliberated and anticipated MacBook Pro update.

And it was huge!

Talk about a complete overhaul. New speakers, new microphones, new iSight camera (720p), new fan system, new Retina display, thinner body, lighter body, new Mag charger, no CD drive, 2 x Thunderbolt ports, 2 x USB 3.0 ports and all flash storage.

It’s a damn revolution.

Apple are continuing to lead the way with computer technology by pushing the bar higher and higher. PC fans reading this would argue that you can just install Linux on a super super PC that cost £500 to build and you’d have a better computer. But would you? If you think you would, you probably need a shave and a good wash…because you’re stuck in the 80s with the rest of the Bill & Ted gang.
