WeKast presents from your phone to any screen anywhere

Have you ever had an opportunity to do a pitch or presentation at a business but it took longer to get all set up than to do the presentation? Maybe it was the wrong cable, the Wi-Fi too slow or locked down or your laptop wouldn’t boot up and oh well, so much for first impressions. Enter WeKast, a pocket-sized plug and “cast” solution. It’s designed to eliminate all the fuss and complexities and help you get to what you need to do – make that presentation.

Plug and Cast

BrewLock keeps draft beer as fresh as Day 1

7c80665f17d37362172959b7ff689726I certainly enjoy having a pint of draft now and again especially when it’s hot and sunny outside. But I’m sure you’ll agree that depending where and when and what kind of beer is on tap the brew experience can sometimes be hit and miss. And that’s not a good thing, so Heineken is introducing a beer they claim is as fresh as the day it left the brewery in Amsterdam. No, it’s not a new beer, but rather a new revolutionary draft dispensing technology called BrewLock that’s allowing them to make those claims.

“Canadians can experience Heineken just like in Amsterdam, without having to go to Amsterdam,” said Laurens Raven, Global Draught Master at Heineken. “This is a new chapter in a long history of innovations driven by Heineken and it will set the bar for how draught beer should taste. BrewLock provides a brewery fresh taste, the way the brewmaster intended it to be.” Read more…at Canoe Tech Blog.

Dyson Supersonic is a new hair dryer

100122255The Dyson Supersonic was just unveiled in Tokyo and with no doubt; the name immediately stirs up imagery of an ultra high-speed vacuum or fan. And while I’m sure some of their existing technology is in this new product, James Dyson and his crack team of 100+ engineers and 30 in-house motor specialists have come up with what they think is the ultimate fast, focused and intelligent hair dryer and the answer to all hair drying problems.

“Hair dryers can be heavy, inefficient and make a racket. By looking at them further we realized that they could also cause extreme heat damage to hair. I challenged Dyson engineers to really understand the science of hair and develop our version of a hair dryer, which we think solves these problems,” says inventor and company founder James Dyson.

Cool CreoPop pen lets you draw in 3D

CEOPOPIf you think 3D printers are cool, then how about a pen that allows you to draws objects in 3D that’s truly cool? It’s called CreoPop from a Singapore-based company of the same name originally funded through Indiegogo. The pen uses specially designed ink made from photopolymers that flows freely from the pen and solidifies when exposed to LED diodes.

Cool in More Ways

Now when I say cool, I mean it in multiple senses of the word. Yes, it is cool – very funky; imagine you can draw almost in thin air. It’s also cool because of the types of inks it uses (more later) and again cool, since the ink that flows from the pen is more or less cool to the touch. Read more…at CanoeTech Blog.
