Really ingenious combination of an LED, battery, microcontroller, & accelerometer.

What would be even cooler is if the product actually flashed the brake light in relation to how much deceleration was occurring. EG. slow flash is light deceleration, fast flash -> always on is high deceleration.
Brake lights inform following traffic that the vehicle is slowing down, but what happens if the deceleration is not the result of braking? The Stoptix automatic brake light alerts other road users that deceleration is taking place in front of them even when the brakes have not been applied.

Getting rid of the automatic transmission may help people pay more attention to their surroundings and many cars ahead of them

A 90% reduction in bearing friction PLUS a weight reduction too? And all I need are some Dremel skills? Yes please!

+Brad Hopper The gist of it was, if I remember, that the variable track profile introduces both rolling and sliding friction and increases wear. In the end you're no better off than with a regular bearing.

+Ascent AeroSystems is currently using Kickstarter to ramp up interest in their unique take on a rugged & portable UAV.

Based on a prototype pictured in their Kickstarter video (2:04 minute mark) it looks like the bottom blade is using a swashplate to allow for pitch and roll control. I'm curious to know if the swashplate complexity and weight can be done away with if using the system described in the following video from +ckBot instead.

About a year ago, [Scott] completed what is probably one of the finest builds ever shown on a YouTube channel. It was an expanding wooden table, a build inspired by a fantastically expensive expanding table that was itself inspired by a creation by a mad…

Why have I never heard of this before?!

When going abroad, take your SIM and put it in the internet connected #Strone Roam while putting the Strone app on your smartphone. Now all texts and calls will be sent over the internet to and from your phone wherever it has data - but you're not roaming because the SIM and cellular connection is sitting pretty at home!!
Melbourne-based startup Strone is looking to make phone bill shock after an international trip a thing of the past, with a smart device that stays behind to forward all your voice calls and texts to your mobile phone through an app.

My argument is that 3d printing is a "skill" and requires a fair bit of "knowledge" it is not ink jet, the typical 3d printing user would have no problem firing up google to search "opening a suitcase without a luggage key"

From my internet research, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMdS65_E_X4 apparently you can do this with aluminum and copper electrodes?

Lol, saw the Batmobile on Hwy 401 going home today. Turns out it's owned by the Brampton Batman.

You're going to want to sit on the East side of the building - A/C doesn't work well enough for the West side.

Place smells like wet dog. Old and dated. Weird that the sink is outside the bathroom. Staff was polite and helpful.

The suites at this hotel are more like one bed + den apartments. Very happy with the size. Check-in was a breeze as was getting there in the first place. It's a bit of a walk to the center of the downtown core but well worth it. Sadly no room service at all - but free wifi is good.

Very happy with my stay here. Recommend you sign up with the free Hilton Hhonors so you have the complimentary WiFi in the room as well instead of just in the lobby. We received complimentary breakfast for all the days we stayed here. Great location too, straight shot from LAX down the 105 to this hotel. Then 2 seconds from I-5 straight to Disneyland in 20 minutes.

Stopped by for dinner, had the fish and chips. Service was quick and polite. Was the off season so not many other people there. Good decor and TVs weren't too loud. Good view from the windows and the lighting was not dim.

Overall I was very happy with my stay at Delta hotels. The location was beautiful and Scenic and the check-in was painless. The rooms were great and the complimentary breakfast in the morning was delicious. My only issue with my day was how close the stream of water from the bathroom sink tap was to the back of the sink itself. I was very self-conscious about making sure my hand didn't touch the back wall of the sink whenever I was washing them.
