It just looks like tin-foil. Any excuse for some free pizza is fine with us though. Hopefully this will make the Pizza industry a bit greener.

Solar-powered rainbow machine

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on December 23rd, 2010

Rainbows are a beautiful and amazing creation of nature. But sadly, they are rare and don’t last very long. If only we had a machine that could make rainbows whenever we wanted them. Well we do and we can.

Michael Jones McKean’s artificial rainbow machine uses reclaimed rainwater and sunlight to create rainbows. It “uses a series of high-powered jet pumps and custom fountain nozzles to spray water into the air, creating the conditions needed for a rainbow to appear.” Maybe now he can work on some double rainbow technology. The machine is set to be installed at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts in Omaha, Nebraska next June.

Logitech has a new solar keyboard with an ultra-slim 1/3-inch profile and laptop-style chiclet keys.

Solar powered concept media player has Sony brand

Posted in Concepts by Shane McGlaun on October 1st, 2010

I like a nice concept product because it lets us have a glimpse at what the gadgets of the future might look like. I have no doubt that at some future date solar power will be the main means of powering all manner of electronic devices. Today isn’t that day though with solar panels that are generally unable to power much of anything quickly or for a long time without room for a very large solar panel.

A new concept media player has surfaced that has the Sony brand. It’s not an official Sony concept apparently and it is called the Eclipse. The Eclipse has a solar panel on the back that gathers all the power the thing needs to operate. It has integrated speakers and a touchscreen for viewing video content.
