Technology & Design
What makes our lives run a wee better and it's Design ;)
Ouya - Sporting a Tegra 3 quad-core processor, Android 4.0, 1GB of RAM 8GB of flash storage, HDMI, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and a wireless hardware controller, it's got the chops to output fine-looking games, and thanks to an open SDK combined with the guarantee of digitally-delivered, free-to-try titles, it could up-end the console business as we know it.
Hovding Invisible Bike Helmet - This unique helmet serves as an airbag for cyclists, wrapping around your neck like an extra collar and using a gas inflator to pop the collar open and inflate the crazy, alien-looking airbag in roughly 0.1 seconds. Accelerometers and gyros detect accidents, sending 10 seconds of movement data to a black box for further analysis. Like any respectable modern gadget, it also features a rechargeable battery and charges/upgrades over USB.
