Very interesting to see how far the Tricorder concept has come along.
Consumers will test 10 prototypes in the next phase of the Tricorder XPrize

A bold and creative idea by HP - a "workstation" for makers. 
Hewlett Packard wants to infuse life into PCs with a new kind of machine that uses a built-in projector for surface-enabled touch and 3D scanning. Will makers and creatives get on board?

Another Interesting Kickstarter project. A low power bluetooth controlled lock.  Pretty clever idea and the software looks intriguing -- especially the ability to grant others the ability to unlock for various time durations. I'm in.   (Full disclosure - we've worked with the industrial design team and they are very good).
TEO is the first key-less padlock that you can unlock, lock, access and share with our app on your Bluetooth enabled device.

Our new foster dog seems to like relaxing in the garden -- literally. What's up with that?

My shiny new Xperia Z3 phone.   I was considering a Nexus 6, but in the end chose the Xperia largely for the battery performance. So far I have not been disappointed. I've been running 2 days on a single charge, which is at twice as good as my Nexus 4.  Also, once I loaded the Google Now Launcher, the phone has a very similar experience to stock Android.

Another Foggy Day in Steveston

What appears to be Captain Nemo's Nautilus approaching, is actually a dredger.

Very clever idea indeed. Paper crumple zones for your bike helmet.
 
Could a paper bike helmet (shown here on the left) offer more protection than a traditional polystyrene one? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-25681895

The inspiration behind it comes from the natural world, in particular the woodpecker.

I had no idea that Google Reader was being used to circumvent censorship in various jurisdictions.  Not sure if any rss reader replacements will be able to provide this benefit too.
