How a quartz watch works

Gear  |  Tech
This is great explanation of how the piezoelectric effect of quartz is used to keep accurate time. 
The amazing everyday wristwatch: We never think about it, but only because engineers have made it so reliable and durable that we don't need to. At its heart lies a tiny tuning fork made of the mineral quartz. In this video Bill takes apart a cheap watch and shows extreme close-ups of the actually tunings fork. He explains how the piezoelectric effect of quartz lies at the heart of the watch's operation.

New Mondo Darth Vader Poster

New Mondo Darth Vader Poster
Gear  |  Pic
TITLE: King’s Lead Hat
ARTIST: Rob Jones
EDITION: 255
SIZE: 24”x 36”
PRICE: $50
"There's a scene in Star Wars where Grand Moff Tarkin strides into his council room on the Death Star announcing the dissolution of the Imperial Senate. His officers express concern over the Emperor's ability to maintain control of star systems without this governing body. To this Tarkin retorts, 'Fear will keep the local systems in line. Fear of this battle station.'
This exchange made me consider the motivation behind the Emperor's construction of Darth Vader. I'm not referring to just the cybernetic bits maintaining Vader's body but also the active manipulation of his mind to bring him to the dark side. The Emperor created in Vader a weapon no different from the Death Star in its ultimate purpose, a means of generating fear amongst the vast populace he ruled. An administrative tool that became the executor of the Emperor's cruel commands. With that in mind, I decided to depict Vader as a facility harnessing and directing his immense natural power towards malicious ends." - artist, Rob Jones

"In Japan there is a "my chopsticks" movement because the wooden disposable chopsticks are a waste of resources. But people miss the feeling when they pull them apart. That is ritual is the starting sign of the meal.
"Stickpecker" is a solution for that. The Magnet resembles the feeling of pulling apart wooden chopsticks. Also the wood pecker and wood design reminds you of a peaceful forest that you are protecting at that very moment. You can say good bye to the wooden ones. Acrylic

Low-Cost Solution to Keep On Biking

LowCost Solution to Keep On Biking

LowCost Solution to Keep On Biking
Gear  |  Bike
A low-cost solution to keep on biking. One of the cyclists at Dutch Bike Co. was caught without studded tires when it started snowing in Seattle. But there's nothing that a box of zip ties can't fix! MacGyver trick isn't new, but now that winter is here... Fritz Rice, the the DIYer on these photos, says that while the ties look "completely ludicrous", they work "beautifully":
"I can accelerate, brake, and corner with aplomb, even on the vile snowpack/sheet ice mix the plows leave in the bike lanes. The zip ties dig nicely into the hardest packed surfaces, but they're thin enough not to bounce the bike around at low speed or on short pavement sections. "
