Snap Power USB Charger

You know a product is a great idea when a couple of pictures describe the entire product.

With that in mind, we’ve all seen wall outlet USB charges, but the Snap Power, in my opinion, will rule them all.

The design is clever. Installation is ultra-easy. Accessibility supersedes all others.

Take a second and just look at it:

In my mind there are three things which make this a brilliant wall charger. If you don’t mind me walking you through the obvious, here we go.

Or skip the highlights and jump right over to their website:

The design is brilliant. The User keeps both outlets available for normal use while a sleek looking USB port is added underneath. At the time of this article there is one USB socket, but visiting their website you can see two sockets, one on either side. They are constantly improving.

Installation is very easy. Simply unscrew your current face-plate and replace it with

(Infograph) History of Portable Storage Devices

The history of portable storage is an interesting one and starts earlier then you probably think.  Starting in 1928 the punch card is what started it all.  Like the punch music you probably remember on your grandmothers piano where the piano played automatically from the punch roll.

Eliminating Moore’s Law With Phosphorus Atom Transistor

Scientists are trying to break the boundaries of Moore’s law by taking a phosphorus atom and create a working transistor as the gate to control electrical flow.

Moore’s law describes a long-term trend in the history of computer manufacturing whereby the number of transistors that can be placed in the same amount of space doubles approximately every two years.

Michelle Simmons, director of ARC Center for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology at the University of New South Wales, Australia, took an atom and etched it into a silicon bed with “gates” to control electrical flow and metallic contacts to apply voltage to start/stop current.  It’s the first such device to be precisely positioned using

Web Receipt Is Snap Shot of Web

Little Printer is a thermal printer which browses the web and prints up interesting snippets of information.

I love my iPhone and use it for many things, keeping a calendar, phone book, email, text etc, but I still prefer a piece of paper to make my daily list of to-do’s.  Likewise, it’s best to read a story from a book or magazine.  Well, along those same lines of “analog” textual feeling is the Little Printer.  A printer designed to print up a receipt of information for a grab-n-go read.

For all the douche-bags who are going to write about going green, or go paperless, or get with the times and read your phone – you know I’m right when I say – screw you!   Sometimes paper is better.

Jelly Batteries – A Better Solution

In a jelly battery the jelly would replace the liquid electrolytes currently used in most lithium batteries.  University of Leeds dreamed up a very unique solution to our never-ending-quest for more battery power.

A new prototype of battery, the jelly battery, avoids what the pros call “thermal runaway.”  The thermal runaway is what causes batteries to over heat and [sometimes] catch on fire.

The Leeds research team says their secret to success lies in the blending of a rubber like polymer with a conductive, liquid electrolyte into a thin, flexible file of gel.  That film sits between the battery electrodes.

“Safety is of paramount importance in lithium batteries. Conventional lithium batteries use electrolytes based on organic liquids; this is what you see burning in pictures of lithium batteries that catch fire. Replacing liquid electrolytes by a polymer or gel electrolyte should improve safety and lead to an all-solid-state cell,”

said Professor Peter Bruce from the University of St Andrews, who was not involved in the study.
