Gear  |  Gadget
Wireless webcams are difficult to set-up and they need power. Vue Personal Video Network($300; Pre-order) system includes two cameras, a base station and the webcams are battery powered. The system uses a 2.4GHz network called a FrameMesh that connects to either a base station or another camera up to 50 feet away. Originally developed for the Army, Avaak is also testing a system that uses thousands of tiny cameras - cubes about an inch across - that you can throw around a scene and watch remotely. In short, these are disposable cameras for home use that can stick almost anywhere and use very little power(Uses small coin battery; Up to one-year of battery life under normal usage ). The base station sends the video to VueZone.com where you can activate different cameras and watch what's going on in your home. Sadly, the kit has no motion sensor so you're stuck checking things out whenever you feel that something might be amiss They film in VGA at 10 frames per second with resolution of 640 x 480. The kit with two cameras costs $299 and additional cameras cost $99.

impress - flexible display

Array
Gear  |  Gadget
Impress is a "real" flexible interactive display, developed by Silke Hilsing. The prototype was built by foam and using pressure sensitive sensors that reacts to your movements on the screen.
"Impress is the deliverance of the touch screen from its technical stiffness, coldness and rigidity. It breaks the distance in the relationship of human and technology, because it is not any longer the user which is subjected to technology, but in this case the display itself has to cave in to the human. Impress is a chance of approach of user and technology, above all, from technology.
It is a matter of a flexible display consisting of foam and force sensors which is deformable and feels pleasantly soft. Impress works with the parameters position and time like other touch screens as well, but in addition to that, it reacts, above all, on the intensity of pressure." Watch video of it in action.

Steampunk Lamp by Michael Pusateri

Gear  |  Gadget
Steampunk Lamp by Michael Pusateri. Made of an old wooden cigar box, two 60 watt bulbs, a handful of copper wire...
"I used an old wooden cigar box, a few ceramic bulb mounts, a rheostat and few other odds and ends. I did get a little fancy and paint the ceramic mounts with textured copper paint. The wiring was trivial, but I got a chance to use an Underwriter's Knot. There's a lot more steampunk I could have thrown at it, but I like the simplicity of this. I used two 60 watt bulbs, so it can get quite bright. It's much more pleasant at a lower light level."
