Save your PS3 games in the cloud

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on January 29th, 2011

Sony has told developers that the PlayStation 3 will soon have the ability to save games in the cloud. They’ve named it simply Online Saving. Soon you’ll be able to save your games and access them from anywhere. You won’t have to carry your PS3 to your friends house anymore.

It isn’t free however. This cloud service will only be available to PlayStation Plus subscribers. If you are among those who subscribe to this, you can expect to get Online Saving with the upcoming 3.60 firmware update.

Posted in Power Strips by Conner Flynn on June 16th, 2010

If you know what’s happening with your energy, then you have the power to change the way you do things and save some cash. You need to know just how much energy you use and where you’re using it. The new Belkin Conserve Insight is a $30 power-outlet adapter with a small screen that tells you just how much the item plugged into it is costing you.

Knowing is half the battle. The display can tell you just how much juice is being used by any device in watts, dollars or carbon dioxide. When you see how much money is going out the window, you’ll be inspired to change things around a bit and stop leaving things running when not using them.

SmartSwitch is tougher to flip when consumption is high

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on February 24th, 2009

SmartSwitch is tougher flip when consumption is highWe hear about the saving and the wasting of energy all the time. It seems like we don’t actually pay attention until it affects us in the real world. Which is how this light switch helps. Peter Russo and Brendan Wypich of Stanford University developed the SmartSwitch, a light control with tactile feedback that helps you “see” how much energy is already being used, whenever you try to flick the switch.

If the total energy consumption in the house is low, the SmartSwitch is easy to flip. But if the consumption is higher, the SmartSwitch is physically harder to flip, thanks to a brake pad within the mechanism. The idea is that people will use this tactile feedback to decide if they really really need that light on or not. And it gives users a physical interaction with how much they are using.

Phone controlled street lights save energy

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on February 22nd, 2009

On Call Street Lights save energySomething interesting is happening in Germany and for once it has nothing to do with David Hasselhoff. It has to do with the fact that municipal budgets are tight. Many towns throughout the world are turning off street lights at night to save money. Saving money and electricity is awesome. But we need light when we need light. Like when old ladies are walking home.

So some German towns seem to have found a solution. Their lighting grids have been modified with a system called Dial4Light. That means that residents can use their cellphones to turn on the lights street by street. When 15 minutes passes, a timer turns the street dark again. That means less wasted energy and residents still have light.

Robot Money Box looks tough, stores money

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on January 26th, 2009

Robot Money Box looks tough, stores moneyIt makes sense to switch from the classic piggy bank to a robot, where guarding your money is concerned. Piggy banks can fall easily to any hammer and spill out their nickel and penny stuffed guts. A robot on the other hand won’t give up the dough so easy, but one downside is that it’s smart enough that it may even spend your dough on stuff it wants.

This cute looking but money-hungry robot money box can even talk to you, tell you the time and let you know how much money he is guarding inside his body. One cool feature is that you can set a target amount you want to save and he will tell you how close you are to your goal as if taunting you.

New vent controlling device saves you money

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on December 29th, 2008

New vent controlling device saves you moneyHaving central heating is easy and convenient, but not very cost effective. For one thing, you’re heating rooms that are not in use. Most homes do not need every single room to be the same temperature. hat’s where this device comes in handy. The Vent-Miser Programmable Energy Saving Vent saves you money by controlling individual room temperature.

Just program the temperature you would like the room to be and Vent Miser will allow or restrict airflow to keep that specific room at the desired temperature. These electronic vents replace the vents you already have to help regulate airflow, rather then replace your current heating or cooling system.

Save electricity with dying flowers

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on November 30th, 2008

Save electricity with dying flowersSaving electricity in the home is a good thing. We all benefit. Cutting back on the power you waste can save plenty of money on the electric bill too. But we’re only human and could use a little reminder sometimes. A reminder that isn’t some treehugger starring in a PSA on TV.

The Wilting Flower from English designer Carl Smith will remind you. It’s a little known fact that people pay more attention to a flower then they do to a preaching hippie. Plus, the flower looks like it’s bathed. This little wilting flower changes from blue, to red, to yellow, to purple, then turns off, as our power demands increase. But as it changes, the petals slowly close and the flower keels over in its vase. In other words, you are a murdering bastard and it hopes you feel bad.

Taxi Walker Pedometer shows you how much you save by walking

Posted in Exercise Gadgets by Conner Flynn on October 21st, 2008

Taxi Walker Pedometer shows you how much you save by walkingThe Taxi Walker Pedometer from Japan gives you the usual calorie and distance measurements of a standard pedometer, but what’s interesting is that it integrates a meter displaying how much money you are saving by walking rather then taking a taxi the same distance. A good gadget to have in this economic climate.

Apparently, it’s fully programmable, and will calculate cab fares depending on your geographic location. You can even set it to make sound effects whenever a cab fare increases. The device is available in yellow, orange, white, or black for $29.00. Yeah, but will it yell at you in a foreign accent and honk an imaginary horn?

The Blade will save gas & money

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on September 3rd, 2008

The Blade will save gas & moneyThis device sounds too good to be true. It’s called the Blade and it screws onto the end of your tailpipe. Through extensive testing, it supposedly shows from 16-34% savings on gas! That’s an average of about 3.8 MPG’s. As an example, a US driver goes an average of about 30 miles per day or 10,800 miles per year. At the national average of 22 MPG that means about 490 gallons of gas. At $4, that’s roughly $2,000.

Apparently, when you add the BLADE to your tailpipe, you would only use about 418 gallons or about $1,675. Your savings would be roughly $325! Since I suck at math, I’m forced to take their word for it. The device costs $200, so you could make your money back in several months and still be saving after that. It saves gas, money and the environment. What more do you want?

GreenCore 10200: Air Conditioning from solar power

Posted in Solar Powered by Conner Flynn on August 14th, 2008

GreenCore 10200: Air Conditioning from solar powerAir conditioners are not usually solar powered because they use so much power you would need a large surface area of solar panels to keep it going. What’s interesting here is that the GreenCore 10200 solves this problem by using a battery pack that it recharges continuously throughout the day. (It can also be charged directly from the wall)

The GreenCore comes with a configuration that will not be enough power to run the air conditioner completely on it’s own, but what it will do is save you some serious money on your next power bill by doing it’s part and it can be combined with other solar panels to supply its complete power needs. The technology looks pretty promising and can be used in a variety of ways.
