A New Wearable Battery: More Flexible and Durable than Anything Else - Core77 - 30-07-2014

There are at least two big challenges with creating wearable technology. The first is to actually design something that people will want to buy and use, and the second is to keep the device in juice. Here we're going to look at the second. The battery design and function of a wearable device is anything but trivial. We need to develop batteries that are flexible, thin, long-lasting and durable...a huge set of requirements that is very difficult to achieve. But one startup, Imprint Energy, thinks it's got a...

Core77 Design Awards Spotlight: SOAK Charging Side Table - Core77 - 30-07-2014

Ever more powerful portable devices increasingly enable our always on-the-go lifestyles, yet even the fastest microprocessor needs a power supply, and we find ourselves tethered to outlets in moments of repose, and (mis)managing the wires, cables and cords that serve as veritable lifelines for our power-hungry handhelds. It should come as no surprise that the backup battery industry is booming, but what about the way we reboot at home? Instead of attempting to achieve invisibility through reduction, Youmin Vincent Kim has seen fit to hide a charger in plain...

Martha Stewart Loves Drones - Core77 - 30-07-2014

If you asked me a year ago which famous persons are advocates of drones, homemaking maven Martha Stewart would not have topped that list. But after receiving a camera-outfitted drone for her birthday last year, she became enamored of it while flying it around a New England beach and observing the vantages from her iPad. Pronouncing herself "hooked," she continued using the drone to capture subsequent parties, nature hikes and outings. Earlier this year, a member of Stewart's security team purchased a similar drone, and was given permission to learn to fly the thing over Stewart's...

The TSA Wants You-- To Design a Solution to Our Collective Airport Security Woes (For a Chance to Win to $5K of Prize Money) - Core77 - 30-07-2014

The airport security line is the kind of universally despised ordeal that extraterrestrials, should they exist, would dread; even a seasoned traveler will bristle at the thought of the rigmarole of boarding pass / I.D., uncooperative scanners, doffing footwear, unwieldy bins, more scanners. At best, it's a mildly demeaning nuisance, but what are you going to do about it? Well, it turns out that the TSA wants to know—they recently announced an Ideation Challenge soliciting proposals for expediting the process, specifically for TSA Pre✓ passengers but ostensibly for us plebs as well. "America's Next...

An Ingenious Little Plastic Gizmo that Makes Up for an Apple Design Flaw - Core77 - 30-07-2014

I'm a heavy Apple user and I love their products, but I'm bewildered by some of their design decisions. The one that drives me the most nuts is that my Thunderbolt Display's USB ports are on the back. As someone who is frequently connecting and disconnecting things, this gets super-annoying. So I was excited when I saw this little gizmo by BlueLounge, the Jimi USB extension: (more...)

Next generation: as Honda's Asimo robot grows up, we quiz engineer Satoshi Shigemi about its future - Wallpaper - 30-07-2014

The future looks good. Honda's Asimo robot has served a dual purpose throughout its 14-year development as an ambassador for the Japanese brand's technical ambitions and as an R&D platform that feeds into all aspects of the conglomerate's business. Its teenage transformation is looking increasingly promising. We recently travelled to Brussels, the rather incongruous European HQ of Honda's robotics division. Here, in a nondescript business park, Asimo is oiled up and rolled out for press calls and educational trips, as well as receiving endless tweaks from the robotic HQ back in Japan. One such tweak has just arrived, and it's enough...

Core77 Design Awards 2014: The Best DIY Designs of the Year - Core77 - 30-07-2014

There's something singularly rewarding—magical, even— about sketching an idea, taking stock of materials on hand, crunching numbers on backs of envelopes, and then actually making it into a real thing... which is why we're always excited to see the projects in the DIY category of the Core77 Design Awards. And while many of the honorees seen here can be reproduced, with a bit of time and effort, by any maker out there, Awards duly recognize the folks who came up with them in the first place. Moreover, these projects...

Onboard Storage Design: Why Vikings Never Fought For Overhead Bin Space - Core77 - 29-07-2014

Vikings loved to brawl, with both their enemies and with each other. Viking sagas are filled with tales of even longstanding friends happy to settle disagreements with steel. But as they piled onto their longships to go pillaging, their boarding process was a good deal more civilized than the melee that is modern air travel. For one thing, their storage was one-to-one; when 30 Vikings got onto a ship, there were 30 places to store things. That's because they carried their seating on board with them, and their seating doubled...

Tonight at Curiosity Club: Kate Bingaman-Burt "8 Days A Week" - Core77 - 29-07-2014

Tonight's Curiosity Club is "8 Days A Week" with the prolific Kate Bingaman-Burt, illustrator, educator and all-round creative badass. As she puts it: Kate will involve colorful visuals, excitement about personal projects (both hers and others), her path from wanting to be a morning TV personality (watch out Kathie Lee) to teaching (it was an accident, I swear) to drawing every day (my hand is cramping as I type this). Also, she has a problem with slipping from third person to first person while writing (I am so sorry). Also, she usually...
