Steer is designed to prevent you falling asleep at the wheel. It accomplishes this by monitoring your heart rate using 16 different sensors around the wristband. It then takes an average of your heart rate so it can alert you when your heart rate drops due to you falling asleep at the wheel. It follows this up with a flash of the light coming from the band and a gentle vibration, if this doesn’t have an effect on you it then shocks you with an electric shock that gives you a jump which increases the quantity of serotonin, cholesterol and other hormones that will get your heart rate back to normal as well as giving you a bit of energy to carry on with your drive. As an unbiased third party writing about this gizmo I can see the obvious benefit of reducing the number of accidents on roads by keeping more people awake yet there is the large flaw of the possibility of it malfunctioning which could give you too many or to power of an electric shock that could lead to an overdose of hormones. As a final note, this product is currently on Kickstarter and is expected to come out in November for approximately 100 USD.

 These new state of the art glasses simulate sunlight. They work by having an LED light reflect off a mirror and hit your face just over your eyes, to prevent getting blinded by the light and so you still have full vision. The purpose of this set of glasses is to reduce seasonal defective disorder and to increase sleep quality. These are better than sunlight lightbulbs for your lights due to that they have a constant focused area and that you can use them on the go. Their app makes it easy to use with instructions as well as a notification whenever the 20 allocated minutes of needed usage is over.

The epicenter of global technology is about to move! Apple park or as its officially called ‘apples new mega-campus’, is opening before the new year in Cupertino, California.

Big tech companies have been making their smart products grow in size and variety. Starting at the classic music players, then to smartphones, smart tablets, smart televisions, smart boards, and finally apple is making a smart oasis. Not referring to Noel and Liam though. I’m referring to Cupertino’s technological oasis that consists of vast meadows with over two miles of cycling and walking paths, spots of drought-resistant trees and an access tunnel which has a small forest planted on top to space yourself from the outside world. Apart from the main doughnut-shaped building, there are many other facilities, including a visitors center, a fitness gym, a theatre named after the late Apple CEO, Steve Jobs, found in the center of this epicenter. 

Now just to place a sense of the scale of this mega campus, although mega is a scale in itself. The main building is wider than the Pentagon, has a larger diameter as the empire state building is tall and the overall plot could fit more than 100 football fields inside it. Yet this space is not put to waste, with over 1300 employees planned to work there, each has to have access to 7 different cafes. They don’t even have to worry about parking, the park has 14,000 spaces in its giant, solar energy producing parking lot. And if they want to take a break from all this tech and get some fresh air they can take advantage of their surroundings and grab one of the 1,000 freely accessible bicycles and take a tour of the park where they can take a breath of fresh air filtered by over 7,000 trees.

Now. This park isn’t just a green oasis because it filters a bit of air through all its trees, it is also 100% reliable on green energy meaning that all the energy comes from the solar panels on the parking lot roof and the long stretch of solar panels covering the roof of the main building. And you may be thinking that this must seem like a fortune to produce, and it is. Costing at approximately five billion US dollars to apple, which is surprisingly only two percent of the companies savings!

RGB shades are programable LED glasses that can make any pattern of your choice. They follow the old retro blind model yet unlike the old blind glasses these can actually blind your friends whilst you are comfortably shaded from its light. They are perfect for nightclubs and parties. Now they do come with Pre made moving patterns yet you can easily program your own to give your point of view from your point of view.

This nifty gadget pairs a music player, mood lighting, centerpiece and flavor enhancer into one doohickey. No even though this sounds really appetising hold your horses for now, it’s just a concept, so you can’t buy one just yet. On the device’s website, it’s pegged more as a smart centrepiece that happens to have a salt dispenser. And a Bluetooth connection to your phone to play music. And a rainbow of light colours to “create the ambience that’s right for the night.” The device hopes to be on Indiegogo by June 15 to raise money for its launch, but in the meantime enjoy the idea of the “first multi-sensory device to make dining experience fun.” The company’s blog includes a few articles about the longtime practice of using centrepieces to decorate the home and innovations in kitchen technology, fusing tradition and the future. Just like this souped-up salt shaker. See more at http://www.mysmalt.com/

Recycling is evolving all the time but with new research scientist have designed a battery made with old glass bottles. The scientists at UC riverside created nano silicon anodes which is a vital part of the battery which provides and stores more energy than a regular battery. This battery can store up to 4 times its original capacity once combined with a lithium Ion battery. And this will reduce the billions of bottles getting dumped into landfills. Making one mans waste into another mans super battery.

The aim of VR has always been to make the digital world as real as possible. Normally this is done by higher graphics and a more ergonomic controller, but now a team at the Hasso Plattner Institut in Germany has added a whole new variable

This piece of equipment allows you to feel inside the VR world hooking onto your arm and hand sending electric currents which can stop your movement when it passes a certain point like a wall. It also can give you mild electric shocks if you accidentally electrocute yourself in the game. This doohickey can even simulate strain on you arms if you ever try to pick up a heavy object and give you mild residence in the process of pushing a button or pulling a leaver. This will start off as a gaming software, but the technology can be applied, in the future, to making virtual gyms where you actually build muscle, social meeting points to chill with your friends or even give a love one a hug now and then. As soon as we can add a sense of smell and taste to Virtual Reality, it will become truly no diffrent to real life.

This innovative suit made by Suit X can make manual labour over sixty percent easier. It is composed of three main sections: Shoulder X, Back X, Leg X. Add an Arm X, and  a load of guns your practically Iron man. The leading function of these new and exiting  suits is to help manual labourers do their job faster whilst bearing less damage to their body. The suit can also be used in military practice, fire safety departments and the police force so they can have extra strength in times of urgency. The same life saving company designed a suit to help the disabled called Phoeni X which can give legless people an opportunity to work.

Don’t you hate it when it takes years for those builders to build something as simple as a pool. Well now this won’t be a be a problem. Australian-based construction company, Fastback Robotics has created a prototype that can print a brick house from the ground up in just two days. ‘Hadrian X’ is due to be released commercially by the end of 2017. It moves bricks up its arm while applying perfect coating of glue. Once it reaches the arm the robot places the brick seamlessly (without messy cement) like lego bricks. This mobile device has taken the internet at storm with its amazing, mesmerising, mathematical and practical building skills. Is this the future of building or is it just another job disappearing again.

All large electronics such as kindles or iPads have been banned on most aircrafts due to the facility of hiding bombs and detonators in there. Many are angry at this new rule, especially those with young children who depend on there iPads, kindles and tablets to keep them quiet and distracted.
