Nexdock

This is the Nexdock. It was an +Indiegogo project that I contributed to back in March. It's a universal dock that connects via HDMI and Bluetooth to provide a keyboard/display to anything that supports HDMI, a Bluetooth keyboard/mouse, and a 1366 x 768 display resolution.

As far as Indiegogo or Kickstarter projects go, this one went pretty well. Their estimated delivery was June and they made it in September. But, that's not unusual and actually probably better than average. Also, they had to deal with a fire at the factory that destroyed much of their inventory and some manufacturing defects.

The Nexdock is not for sale yet. They are still trying to finish up their Indiegogo deliveries. The Indiegogo project indicated the estimated retail price would be about $149.

Here's their website where you can be notified when they become available again.

Artwork + Memes  - 
 
I'm sure like me, most of you are feeling a bit bombarded or almost overcome with all of the news articles about this Pokémon Go phenomenon. Our own beloved Ingress never received much attention.

I keep having these ideas for memes running through my head as a result. So, here's one.

And, I'm not hating on Pokémon Go. I'm trying it too. Although, I think I still much prefer Ingress.

I put an Enlightened badge on him, because that's what I am. I hope my Resistance friends can still appreciate the thought. :)

+Helene Catnip Thanks. I was perhaps being a little overly sensitive because the great Ingress moderators must have decided that mentioning Pokémon in a meme about both Ingress and Pokémon Go, meant that the post should be removed from the community. :)

DeLorean 35th anniversary.

Celebrating the 35th anniversary of DeLoreans rolling off the assembly line in Belfast this weekend. There are 70 of them in attendance, including three Germans who drove their DeLoreans around the world, ending the trip in Belfast to attend the event this weekend.

All I want is just one of them!!

Actually, you can buy a pre-owned DeLorean from http://www.delorean.com/ for the low $30s to $70s. There is also information there concerning the plans to build new replica DeLoreans.

Seventy DeLorean cars made famous by the Back To The Future movies cruise through Belfast.

Correlated Magnetics Polymaget - designed and printed magnets

You've probably never seen magnets like these.

Correlated Magnetics is a company that has come up with a way to "print" magnets they call polymagnets, with a very intricate distribution of north and south poles.

Very strong magnets can be created by placing many north and south poles on the same face. Normally, magnets have a north pole on one side and south on the other, with the field going around the magnet. Placing many north and south poles on the same surface, creates many small magnetic fields which in total, create a much stronger magnet.

The precise distribution of north and south poles allows the creation of magnets that have characteristics that you might not have thought possible. Such as a magnet that attracts at one distance and repels at another.

The Star Trek Axanar fan film may be back on.
At last night’s Star Trek fan event, the latest trailer for Star Trek Beyond wasn’t the only newsworthy event: J.J. Abrams announced that Paramount Pictures’ lawsuit against Axanar Productions was “going away.”

Sharknado 4

The saga continues on Sunday night. The entertainment value should far exceed that of either of the two recent political conventions. :)
Ian Ziering will slay again in Sharknado 4, reprising his role as shark-fighting hero Fin Shepard, while Tara Reid is set to return as April Wexler to reveal the outcome of the fan-voted #AprilLives or #AprilDies social campaign

Ingress and Pokémon Go

I made this meme and shared it to the Ingress community. They removed it I suppose, because it contained the words Pokémon Go. Some seem to lack a sense of humor over there.

An unknown pianist towed his piano behind his bike to the Dallas police memorial. He played one song, then quietly left. :)
People gathered at a memorial outside the Dallas Police Department were taken by surprise on Sunday when a man pulled up on a bicycle, a piano in tow. Without saying a word, the gentleman began playing a rendition of John Lennon's "Imagine."

An immersive light and sound installation built inside a jet plane fuselage.

I saw this posted over on facebook and searched G+ for a similar post.

Ode to Mothers

This was actually on Amazon for use as an eGift card. Posting it from there was sort of messy. But, it originates from American Greetings and they will at least let you watch it.
