Super Magnets

 Neodymium Magnets
The most powerful magnets on Earth!
This site, United Nuclear seems to have very strong neodymium magnets for sale. And they really mean strong!
All our magnets are high grade Neodymium, grade N40 or higher. They are much, much stronger than
common Neodymium magnets (N28, N35, or N38) on the market today.
This website really means that these magnets are dangerous as there are quite some warnings and disclaimers shown.
In fact they say:
Two of these magnets close together can create an almost unbelievable magnetic field that can be very dangerous. Of all the unique items we offer for sale, we consider these two items the most dangerous of all. Our normal packing & shipping personnel refuse to package these magnets – our engineers have to do it. This is no joke and we cannot stress it strongly enough – that you must be extremely careful – and know what you’re doing with these magnets. Take Note: Two of the 3? x 1? disc magnets can very easily break your arm if they get out of control.

Self Destruct SMS

Staellium UK Ltd. is ‘upgrading’ the SMS market to the ‘Mission Impossible’ state.
How you may ask? Here’s what they’re saying:

“This tape will self-destruct in five seconds” became a household phrase in the 60s and 70s thanks to the creators of Mission Impossible, and now 30 years later the ability to send your own self destruct messages has become a reality thanks to a new innovation – called StealthText launched by Staellium UK Ltd.”

Hmmmm! Looks it’s a function many would like to have; but I think it’s main use is for the defense and financial sectors as they deal with sensitive information on a daily basis, though for the main market of regular users it could be used for many reasons… (I’ll leave this to your imagination…)

Presently it is only compatible with WAP enabled mobile phones, but considering the advance of mobile technology and the craze for the latest funky mobile phone, this could mean about 70% to 90% of the population!

Solar Powered Traffic Signals

Why aren’t traffic signals solar powered?
There must be some good reason—like maybe the idea doesn’t work…?
Well, Lintec Corp is marketing solar-powered traffic signs. They are wireless, too, and supposedly save loads of money as they use no electricity.
The lights use LEDs, which means the bulbs don’t need to be changed for a decade. But that’s assuming there are no typhoons, earthquakes or Midnight Club street racers wrapping a car around the pole …

Remote Control for Men

Remote Control

Well, unfortunately this has not hit production yet!

If such thing ever gets invented, I don’t know what men would be ready to pay for it to get one; on the other hand, I don’t know what women will pay to destroy it!

Lol! Dream… dream… dream…

Japanese Probe to Try Landing on Asteroid Twice

TOKYO (AP) — A Japanese space probe will make another attempt at landing on an asteroid on Saturday after it successfully landed and then departed from its surface over the weekend, officials said Thursday.

The Hayabusa probe was heading back toward the asteroid Itokawa and expected to land on the asteroid around 7 a.m. Saturday.

On Wednesday, the agency announced that the probe had successfully landed on the asteroid 180 million miles from Earth in an attempt on Sunday, overturning an initial announcement that the attempt had failed.

The probe landed on the asteroid within about 100 feet of the landing target for about half an hour although it failed to collect material, according to JAXA.

JAXA Associate Executive Director Yasunori Matogawa said it was the first time that a probe had successfully landed on an asteroid and then taken off.

After Sunday’s landing, there has been no damage found on the body of the probe or any trouble that would hamper an attempt to land on the asteroid, collect material, and then bring it back to Earth, an official said.

Hayabusa was about 19 to 25 miles from the asteroid as of late Thursday, he said.

Hayabusa was launched in May 2003 and has until early December before it must leave orbit and begin its 180 million-mile journey home. It is expected to return to Earth and land in the Australian Outback in June 2007.

Examining asteroid samples is expected to help unlock secrets of how celestial bodies were formed because their surfaces are believed to have remained relatively unchanged over the eons, unlike those of larger bodies such the planets or moons, JAXA said.

A NASA probe collected data for two weeks from the Manhattan-sized asteroid Eros in 2001, but did not return with samples.

Waterless Washing Machine Developed

Singapore – A waterless washing machine that removes stains from garments in a few minutes has been developed at the National University of Singapore, the facility said on Wednesday.

The appliance uses negative ions, compressed air and deodorants to clean clothes.

Industrial design students Wendy Chua, 21, and Gabriel Tan, 23, said they were inspired by the technology in air purifiers, which uses negative ions to clump dirt and bacteria, making it easier for the particles to be sucked out. The ions are a natural cleaning agent.

The sleek and compact design is modelled after a waterfall, a natural negative ion generator.

It does away with the expensive task of sending clothing to be dry cleaned and protects favourite garments, said Chua. No detergents are used.

“It’s not meant to replace the traditional washing machine, but it’s more a hybrid of the washing machine and the dry cleaner,” The Straits Times quoted Chua as saying.

We saw one of these recently and it’s bigger than it appears – just about the same size as a bowling ball. It’s also the closest thing to an RC Samus as you can get (other than going cosplay, and that’s just not the same thing.)

  • Fin blades which move at the touch of a button
  • 3 key modes for movement: Defence mode, Explore mode & Attack mode
  • Articulated tail for stability and attack functions
