Better Than The Innovention’s Dream Home Kitchen

Better Than The Innovention’s Dream Home Kitchen

Wishful thinking for a home like the Disney Innovention is futile coz Neverland brought Michael only grief! It’s safer to sit on the fence and review similar concepts while hoping technology will sustain the efforts one day. For example, this N1 Robot Table 2012 (farfetched?) can give the kitchen table found in the Innoventions home a run for its money. It’s got stuff like touchscreen, built-in camera, internet connectivity, speed dial, music, recipes, screens, energy consumption meter, etc.

Where Do Me Like to Go Today?

Where Do Me Like to Go Today?

Everyone who reads entries here on Yanko knows that I, Chris Burns, even though born in the USA and aboding here my whole life, speak and write English terribly! I don’t do it without intention though! So I titled this entry as it is because this thang we’re talking about is called “Mee-go!” It’s a personal map and communication device. It’s made for “tweens” like Miley, but I want to need to got to have it.

Eco-Friendly Cool Air

Eco-Friendly Cool Air

A bunch of people have been working on a project called Artica, which is a natural cooling, ventilation and heat recovery system. The beauty of the design is that it not only looks and works well, but it also boasts of using less than 10% of the energy of a conventional air conditioning system. Its ratio of thermal to electrical energy rating or COP is 32 making it ten times niftier than the gas chamber of AC you have on your window. Using Artica will reduce your carbon footprint as CO2 emissions are cut by 90%.

Self-Aware All-Sports Steady-Cam

Self-Aware All-Sports Steady-Cam

Not quite on the level of chwarzenegger or Optimus Prime, but it’s getting there. The Chasercam intelligent sports-camera comes basically in two parts: the camera (with base), and the sensor target. When activated, the camera turns on it’s base and up and down, seeking in all directions the sensor target. What you do is stick one to the person doing the tricks, and one to the person who is chasing the person doing the tricks. Total coverage!

One Cannot Resist the Romantic Fruit Pianist

One Cannot Resist the Romantic Fruit Pianist

Oh the iPod DJ. Have you ever seen one? You know how… not awesome… it looks. But take a peek at this. This is the electronic piano – Apple stamped on it – that can display your music, turn your pages, and teach you to play! Those who’ve gotten especially good at turning the page while playing might be a little sad on this, but those are the same people that got mad when they found out CDs would make music a lot clearer than vinyl. (And noone’s got love for 8-tracks but Cheap Trick.)

Interactive Solar Energy Eye

Interactive Solar Energy Eye

While solar power and other such similar “green energy” solutions might very well be the solution to the 36% of carbon dioxide pollution sent up by commercial buildings in Europe, the business owners are reluctant to join the team. What this particular interactive eye on the wall does is to connect the customer to the direct result of the business using environmentally sound solutions – in particular, solar energy.

My Body Paint Communicates With Lights And Music

Imagine painting your body with a specially formulated ink and your gestures, movements or touch allowing you to communicate with electronic devices directly.
