Mobility for kids

All-terrain Whizzybug enables mobility for handicapped UK kids
“The all-terrain vehicle can reportedly handle asphalt and green pastures without issue, and sports a blistering top speed of two miles-per-hour. Additionally, it can be controlled by the caregiver or the youngster, weighs in at just under 70-pounds, has a “fully adjustable seating system with memory foam cushions and a programmable joystick,” and to top things off, this bad boy even touts a trailer hitch for towing those weak Power Wheels rigs out of the rough.”

Logical in spreadsheets

Logical spreadsheets
“In the last 20 years, spreadsheets have become essential tools. Still, they have some limitations. In particular, if they handle mathematical computations, they’re not designed to deal with logical formulas. Now, computer scientists at Stanford University have developed a prototype of a logical spreadsheet using logic instead of math to help us with data management in an innovative way. The U.S. Army would like to use the technology to organize troop deployment and training. And Stanford is already using it to schedule classes, events and rooms. The next step will be to integrate this technology on the Web to replace the forms that we routinely fill by “websheets.”

Solar concept

Solar Powered Beach Umbrella
“Heading to the beach? Why not waste all that sunlight? And what if your boombox runs out of batteries? That’s where the Sun~Brella comes in. It’s just like any normal beach umbrella except it’s coated with solar panels and has an electrical outlet on the stem. And, for those super-hot days, it’s even got a built in fan just under the panels.”

Musical identities

Music As Identity With The Lifehouse Method
“A project by The Who’s Pete Townshend will allow people to create their own musical identity through music. The Method is an Internet-based software program that enables the user — or “sitter” – to generate music from unique, inputted data. The sitter can upload four strands of personal information into the system, consisting of a digital photo, a rhythm, a sound and a voice.”
