MightyText sends phone calls, texts to your browser

Posted in Text Messaging by Reuben Drake on July 7th, 2011

Maybe you forgot your phone at home. No need to drive home and get it. Texts and calls can just be routed to your computer and inside Google Chrome. We aren’t talking about Google Voice, but it’s similar. MightyText will route calls and text messages into Google Chrome instead of sending them to your email. Pretty handy when you lose your phone or leave it behind.

The new service was started by former Google employee, Maneesh Arora. It’s basically a routing service for text messages and calls. It’s in Beta now.

Meat smoker texts you when your meat is done

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on September 2nd, 2010

This DIY meat smoker is a must make. Real men need meat. And they need to know when it is done. Simple as that. And so this meat smoker will alert you via a text message whenever your meat is ready. Peter Rauch decided to use a proportional-integral-differential (PID) controller which can modulate electrical power to a heating element.

It even has a touchscreen display that allows you to adjust the controller, while a J-type thermocouple located in the top of the smoker delivers a voltage signal for the feedback loop to control the temperature. When you combine meat with tech, the results are delicious.

Summer. It’s a time of sun, fun, bikinis and…bike thieves. This concept from designer Steve Hunt looks just like a halo. It’s designed so that the connector cable is housed within the frame of the lock itself, which makes it harder for thieves to cut your cable.

The coolest feature however, is that Hunt wants to have an integrated wireless card inserted into the lock itself, so that when your bike gets stolen, the lock will notify you.

The idea is to hook up obese kids to a “mobile body network,” consisting of a device to measure the skin’s electrical conductivity along with a heart-rate monitor, accelerometer, blood glucose reader and GPS for location, and connecting it with a battery sensor on the child’s body.

The system uses a Smartphone to send the collected behavioral data to the university’s computers, where it is then figures out what the information means. If your kid is laying around, text messages will be shot his way to get him to do get off his ass and do something.

Ghost Pigeon: Untraceable calls and texts on your mobile phoneAre you doing stuff that you shouldn’t be doing? If so, then you probably don’t want to get caught doing that stuff. We don’t want to know. But the Ghost Pigeon can help you keep things on the down low. It’s a piece of cloaking software that masks all incoming and outgoing calls and text messages on your handset so people can’t examine your phone and discover who you’ve been in contact with or even when.

It’s not all shady stuff. It’s likely useful for employees searching or interviewing for a new job on their company phone, or for CEOs negotiating a golden handshake and stuff like that. I mean, not everybody is a drug dealer or a smuggler etc.
