StylusFlex bendable stylus performs multiple tricks

 SFlexMainNo matter what kind of smartphone you have, I’m sure there are times where a stylus could come in handy. The challenge that usually arises – where do you keep it when not in use or put it where you won’t forget it? Enter StylusFlex, a new creation being made available on KickStarter. It’s a bendable stylus that not only cleverly attaches to your phone making it easy to carry around; it also performs other valuable duties as well.

It’s uniqueness starts with one end; it’s shaped like a standard headphone plug. This is how it stays attached to your phone. Plus, beyond being bendable, it’s totally flexible so it can wrap around your phone and you can easily slip it into your pocket without any excess bulk. It’s also long enough that it can reach any part of your screen without removing it from the jack.  Read more…at Canoe Tech Blog.

Whoosh! wipes out your smartphone’s bacteria

Whoosh

It comes in the form of a kit that consists of a clear spray solution and an anti-microbial 6″ x 6″ orange microfibre cloth. There’s no alcohol or ammonia in the solution, which can be harmful to the coatings on some screens, particularly those like the oleophobic coating found on the iPhone.

Screens like the iPhone are designed for capacitive touch. This means that it relies on the ever-minute electrical particles found in the human finger that makes touchscreens possible.  That’s why touchscreens don’t really work if you’re wearing regular gloves.

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?

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.
