aXbo alarm clock


Heres quite a useful gadget I think. An alarm that detects when you have had enough sleep and then sets itself off.
A wristband that you wear detects your body movements and decides when you have had the optimal amount of sleep.
One downside that I can immediatly spot is the fact that it would be useless in waking you up in time for work or school, which is when you really need to be up at a set time. Also, you wouldn't need it on weekends because you can sleep in for however long you want.

A dog biscuit launcher...



What? This has been advertised as a new way to play fetch with your dog. And, according to their website this launcher “helps to fight against pet obesity by encouraging your pet to be active."
Right. Could work I suppose, I just can't see it taking off in a big way.

2007 TT spy shots


Heres a pic of the 2007 audi TT, both the coupe and the convertible models. No more word on the specs yet. So heres a link to more pics to keep you going.

s-chat

So, I was walking home from school the other day, pissed off because none of my teachers had bothered to show that day! I began to think, what if there was somewhere where I could voice my anger and let people know what my school was really like (as it supposedly has a good reputation).
This is where I got the idea for s-chat.
At the moment traffic is slow on the site, and most of the posts are utter rubbish. I'm trying to spread the word as best I can at the moment.

Four door Aston?


Aston Martin unveiled a 4 door concept car at the detroit motor show this week, and frankly, it looks stunning. Think a stretched DB9, but MORE elegant!
It reminds me of the Mercedes CLS, a fast, four door coupe. It should retail for around $250,000 and AM hope to begin production next year.

Mogo bluetooth mouse


Heres what i think happens to be a great idea, the Mogo mouse. Its an ultra compact mouse that slots away into the card slot on your laptop when not being used (where it charges), and then is easily accessible when you want to use it.
There are no wires as it utilises your laptops bluetooth connection (assuming your laptop has bluetooth) which makes it quite possibly the perfect mouse for those who dislike carrying bulky peripherals.
Buy it here.

2006

A bit of a late greeting but, Happy New Year everyone, Happy Christmas, Chanukah or just happy holidays!

Long time no post (yet again)

Sorry for the absence from posting. What with holidays and various exams coming I haven't had much time for blogging.

Flexible batteries from NEC


NEC have announced that they have made a flexible battery that is about 0.3mm thick, and can allegedly recharge in 30 seconds.
'NEC sees it being used in the future for self-powered ID cards and powering electronic paper in as discreet a manner as possible'.
Well, whatever, but it seems like quite a breakthrough to me. Although i'm not so sure about the self powered ID cards.

Aston Martin to release 'hard-core' V8 Vantage

Looks like Aston Martin is set to release a hard-core version of its V8 Vantage - The Vantage RS.
I should be a direct rival to Porsches' GT3 and Ferraris' F430 Stradale. The V8 Vantage RS, currently under test in Europe, will have a stripped-out interior, an uprated engine, and stiffer suspension. It is also likely to be followed by a similarly lightweight 'hard-core' version of the DB9.
Aston should be raising the power of the engine from 380hp to about 420hp resulting in a 0-60 time of around 4.5 seconds and 0-100 in under 10. Also a top speed of 190mph.
It's due before the end of 2007 priced at around $150,000, or about £90,000.
