The time spent on the Internet is becoming a concern for researchers and doctors. We are always work on multi-tasking, and this type of action increases our stress levels, it kills our creative thinking. 

Compared to 1960, we consume three times more information. Is the human brain ready for this?


This is how internet looked like in 1988. It's just like a home network between few cities. 24 years passed and now everyone in the world is connected to the internet. That's how far we've come...


The Korean manufacturer launches LG Optimus VU, a smartphone with a 5-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels. The new model can be used with capacitive Rubberdium pencil. The device weighs 168 grams and measuring 139.6 x 90.4 x 8.5 mm.


Nokia has introduced to Barcelona exhibition the PureView 808 smartphone, which has a 41 MP camera.

Nokia surprised everyone at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, where they presented a smartphone that has a fabulous 41-megapixels camera resolution, the Nokia 808 PureView

This looks suspicious if we remember that at this time top-level compact cameras stop at about at 16 MP. And if we take into account the price for this smartphone (around 450 euros plus taxes), very low compared with 41 MP cameras, it is natural to ask whether Nokia 808 PureView is serious business or marketing strategy.

before this phone, the best camera phone released from nokia was Nokia N8


US company developed a device that could radically change smartphones, tablets and laptops.

The wireless system can charge mobile phones, laptops or tablet in your purse or pants pockets.

The system, called WiTricity, uses magnetic induction. The gadget allows loading devices at a distance of 2.5 meters using so-called "repeater pad", which sends electricity throughout the house.Producers hope that future technology will be used to create wireless vacuums that takes power from the underlying platform.

The company has already signed a contract with a company in Taiwan to produce this system. More details about how the project on


The collaboration between Nokia and Microsoft seems increasingly stronger. Since they became competitive on the smartphone market with the new Windows Phone, Nokia smartphone have become an inspiration to designers around the world.

After Nokia Snow Concept and Nokia Lumia Tablet, another designer has a new design: Nokia World 1000 including PureView technology. The phone could run Windows 8 and would have the same 41-megapixel camera found on Nokia 808 PureView.

Nokia World 1000 concept design features:
  • Dual Core Intel Atom processor clocked at 1.8 GHz Z2580
  • 544MP2 PowerVR SGX graphics processor
  • 2 GB of RAM
  • 64 GB internal memory
  • VGA secondary camera for video calls
  • slot microSD
  • NFC, USB 3.0, FM radio, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS
  • qWERTY keyboard with joystick

The display could be a Super AMOLED pf 4.3 inch with a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels.

Do you think this will be available soon? How do you like the specs?

Launch of the PS4 and Xbox 720

2012 saw the launch of Nintendo's Wii U - the first of the eighth generation games consoles.* By late 2013, it is joined by the PS4 and Xbox 720.

Inspired by Nokia: The Rise and Fall I thought it would be nice to see the first Nokia Phone - Mobira Senator - released in 1992. I'm sure who owned this phone was rich and famos. A piece of history.

Thank you Nokia!

Highly flexible touch sensors are appearing in a range of gadgets

Highly flexible, film-based touch sensors are entering the smartphone and tablet markets.* They are also extending touch capabilities into a range of new consumer and industrial products. Using roll-to-roll metal mesh technology, they provide a high-performance alternative to existing touch sensors. Larger, lighter, sleeker, curved and edgeless designs can now be developed for handheld devices. Thinner sensor stacks with flawless touch performance, excellent optical clarity, low sheet resistance and low power consumption are enabling designers to turn unique, futuristic concepts into functional designs at lower total system costs compared to previous market alternatives.


Whenever you have loved wearing jewelery and marveled why it can not imitative eye and mouth motions just as a bodiless Furby, you are lucky. Japanese Islands has come to your saving with these crazy cool rings that convert your thumbs into a robotic face. The Keio University appears to be the perfect location if you are looking for some technology, gadgets and gizmos fun. 

Do you like these interactive robotic rings?


Is it me or some folks really love movies. I think the helmet is really interesting. Does this scooter has a "Fly" Button?



The Swedish furniture maker plans to launch a complete system composed of advanced TV, DVD player, blue ray player and audio system - all incorporated into one unit available in a variety of colors.

Build This Backyard Water Rocket

Never has learning Newton's third law of motion (equal and opposite reaction) been so much fun. This easy-to-build, kid-friendly water rocket turns any afternoon into a blast.

SAFETY FIRST: Parental supervision strongly advised for build and launch. 

Tools and Materials

· Electric drill with 1/16-, 5/32-, and ¼-inch bits
· One No. 4 size rubber stopper (1 inch long, 1-inch diameter at the fat end)
· One 8-inch length of 3/16-inch (outside diameter) copper tubing
· Bicycle pump with inflation needle
· Heavy card stock
· One 2-liter plastic bottle
· Duct tape
· One drinking straw, minimum ¼-inch diameter
· Four 1-inch-square wood blocks
· One ½-inch plywood board, 12 to 16 inches square
· One ¼-inch threaded steel rod, 18 inches long
· Four ¼-inch nuts
· Two washers, ¼-inch hole, 1-inch diameter 


Make the Stopper Assembly

1. Drill a 1/16-inch hole through the middle of the stopper. 

2. Widen the hole by drilling the 5/32-inch bit about ½ inch into the top (wider part) of the stopper. 

3. Insert the copper tubing into the 5/32-inch hole. 

4. Push the inflation needle into the hole in the bottom of the stopper so that it feeds into the copper tube. 

Build the Rocket

5. Make fins from card stock; attach to the bottle with duct tape. 

6. Tape the 8-inch drinking straw to the side of the bottle (oriented from top to bottom). 

Build the Launchpad

7. Attach square blocks to the corners of the launch platform (plywood), using quick-setting glue or 1¼-inch wood screws. 

8. Place the rocket in the center of the launch platform and mark the spot directly below the plastic straw. 

9. Drill a ¼-inch hole through the mark; insert the steel rod into the hole, and fix in place with nuts and washers. 

Prepare the Hydro-Pump Rocket for Launch

10. Attach the bicycle pump to the inflation needle. 

11. Fill bottle one-third full with water, below top of copper tube. 

12. Push the stopper assembly firmly into bottle's mouth. 

13. Invert the rocket, and slide the soda straw onto the rod. 

Launch the Rocket

14. Pump air into the rocket. The amount of pressure required to fire the rocket will vary, depending on how clean the seal between the rubber stopper and the rocket is and how firmly the stopper is placed. 

15. After several pumps, the pressure inside the rocket will be great enough to overcome the friction holding the stopper in place. Now comes the cool part, as the stopper releases from the rocket, and the rocket launches high into the air, shooting a trail of water behind it. Zoom!
