The Quiet Hair Dryer

Hair dryers can be annoyingly loud. As the title of the post suggests, this model is different as it is described as being quiet.

According to the technical details of the quiet hairdryer, a regular one has a dB level of 81.8 while the quiet version generates 72.8dB which apparently makes a big difference. It uses 1500 watt electric motor that forces air out of it at 48MPH.

Star Trek Style Doors Powered by Air

If you want the doors from Star Trek in your home then go and check out the tutorial at Instructables.

Someone managed to create some air-powered doors that open at the push of a button and then close shortly after. The doors are split down the middle allowing each half to slide in to the wall. Inside the wall is an air vent that lets air in and out when needed. A controller is to be found next to the door that lets you push the button to open. It also contains another switch that lets you permanently keep the doors open, should you be carrying something through it. [Read more…]

Toshiba To Reveal Glasses-Less 3D TV By End Of Year??

There was a lot of speculation surrounding Nintendo’s new upcoming handheld console, the 3DS, when it was announced last year because of the fact that you won’t need large, unsightly, and expensive 3D glasses to experience 3D images. Equally as many people thought (and some still do) that trying to produce this on a larger scale would undoubtedly bring with it a bucket load of more problems. [Read more…]

Neato Robot Vacuum Gets Reviewed

Engadget managed to get hold of a Neato XV-11 robot vacuum to test to see if it’s any good at cleaning floors. The Neato XV-11 goes up against the Roomba as well as other makes and models of robot vacuums.

The Neato XV-11 is different in how it works when compared to the Roomba. When using the Roomba it has a large bumper across the front that when it bumps in to something, it changes direction. A sensor does detect an object but is there to just slow the Roomba down before hitting the wall. The Neato has a laser scanner installed that can scan the room while vacuuming to know where it can and cannot go. [Read more…]

Google TV Announced

After months of rumours, Google [GOOG] has finally announced Google TV. The new service will either come installed on new TV’s that have the processing power to run it, or be provided on a set-top box for those who already have a TV without it.

The Google TV service was designed because of how complicated TV surfing can be. With programs being on at a specific time on one of hundreds of channels, Google say we often need to change our schedule to fit in with the TV.

Compare that to the internet where everything is on demand on sites such as YouTube. These services allow users to just type in what they want to watch and then watch it.

Google TV is an attempt at merging the two technologies… ie, the on demand web with the regular TV which is a more fun way to watch TV show. [Read more…]
