These gloves translate sign language to speech in real time. Software engineer Roy Allela wanted to create something that would let his deaf niece communicate with people who can’t sign. The gloves are controlled by an app where users can switch between different languages, voices, gender, and the actual pitch of the translator.
Yup, you read that title right, in the age of smart everything it’s no surprise that there is finally a “smart” beer fridge. In fact, it’s not even the first smart fridge on the market. The Drinkshift, made by Tokyo-based Shiftall Inc, has the technology to order you more beer when you start to run low.
Now before I get into this insane new item that is being sold at Costco I do have to say one thing, I am definitely PRO mac and cheese! It’s one of the highlights of my week when I chow down a pot of kraft dinner (still in the pot obviously) and binge watch a new Netflix show. But I’m not sure if I can get on board with this 27-pound bucket of macaroni and cheese.
As some rumours swirl around the internet that there will be more plastic than fish by 2050, there are also some great stories about local recycling, like this one about Goby The Fish.
This local beach decided to do something simple, instead of just placing a ton of boring old garbage cans around the beach, they made a giant see through fish out of some barbed wire and mesh, and added a sign to it that said “Goby loves plastic, please feed him”.
It’s fair to say that the Rubik’s Cube is one of the hardest puzzles to solve. Everyone at one point or another has tried to solve it, and if you’re anything like me, you probably failed too, but what if you could get one that solved itself? Well a Japanese computer programmer by the name of Takashi Kaburagi spent 2 years of his life working a Rubik’s Cube that would do exactly that.
Stockholm Sweden has a very strange way of dealing with speeding motorists. They call it the Speed Camera Lottery. If you drive under the speed limit while going by a speed camera you’ll be entered in a lottery where the prize fund comes from the fines of the speeders. The biggest pay out to date was a whopping $20,000 Krona, which is roughly $2,200 US dollars.
These unique bathroom sinks are inspired by those old fashioned turntables from the 70’s. The bowls are painted to look like a record spinning around and the faucet is designed to look like a tonearm spigot. How has no one thought of this before?
This may just be the most difficult puzzle in the world. It’s not because it has a ton of pieces, in fact it’s actually quite small, but the shapes the pieces form are guaranteed to blow your frickin brain off. I do have to say that though that putting that last piece in must feel fantastic!
