Thanks for all the great feedback!
I’ll have more answers to your "homework assignments" when I join Dave Dickson on C-FAX 1070 Radio (www.CFAX1070.com) on "The Buzz" from 6-6:45 p.m. tonight (Sunday) and again when I Join Joe Easingwood on "C-FAX Newsline" starting at 9:30am tomorrow (Monday).
Links to all of the things I’ve found will be posted here later in the week.
In the meantime, here are a few more…
- a $10 "ThirstyLight" — a stir-stick-sized stick which you push down into the soil near a plant or flower, and it starts flashing a bright LED when the plant needs watering! www.ThirstyLight.com
- from Mattel, "Mind Flex" — in which you use just your mind (you wear a small neural transmitter on you head like a single headphone) to make a ball move via a stream of air and float through a hoop and other objects. $80, to be available this summer — and it works! ubergizmo.com/15/archives/2009/01/mindflex_game_by_mattel.html
- from Nokia, "LocalSensor" — a cellphone feature which allows you to find missing keys, briefcase, etc, by attaching small postage-stamp sized "tags" to each devie, and if you lose it, an arrow comes up on the cellphone screen to tell you in which dirtection and how far away it is. Conversely, if you leave your cellphone somewhere, press a button on one of the tags and the cellphone will beep. Or, if you go more than 30 metres away from it, it will lock the phone and email its GPS coordinates to you. Not available yet. www.Nokia.com
- locking HDMI cables for your HDTV so they don’t fall out. available for $50 online at www.Connect2PPC.com
check back for more later in the week, including photos!
