The Hoverboard Distance World Record Smashed.

Representing the ultimate form of personal freedom hoverboards for now remain a dream but many people are working hard to keep the dream alive, Hendo included. Catalin Alexandru Duru is another such individual, having spent the past 12 months working on his own propeller driven hoverboard he has this week proven his tech works by riding it to a new distance record for Hoverboard flight.

With Guinness on hand Catalin took to the air flying 275 meters before setting down in the calm waters of Lake Ouareau in Quebec, Canada. A record that surpassed the previous by 225 meters. Very little is known of the technology used in Catalin’s interpretation of the Hoverboard, it appears to be 4 very powerful quadcopters, but for a first official flight it seemed to work well. This may be one situation where lots of smaller propellers really is better than a few large propellers.

Presented for your viewing pleasure is the World Record flight of one impressive flying machine and its whacky pilot. Sit back relax and prepare to be amazed by the hoverboard that does more; slices dices mixes dispenses. But wait there’s more.

HP Pavilion 15-P001AU Laptop, the Hunt for Value or How Cheap is Too Cheap?

Recently after being tasked with finding a value laptop as a Mothers Day present I proceeded on a journey, a hunt for the perfect computing device for mom. Being a light user; web, photos and a little Skype raw computing power wouldn’t be as important as user experience and value.

Like walking a tightrope if you lean too far in either direction (value or performance) your balance will be lost and tumble down you go. But how low down the performance scale can you go before slow is too slow even for a light user? This was the question rattling around in the back of my brain as the journey began.

Tugger The MicroTug, Micro Machines Finally Pull Their Weight…

A new generation of micro machines have recently begun tugging random objects around Stanford’s Biometrics Lab. Putting insects to shame the latest micro tugs, or Tuggers, are able to pull over 2000 times their own weight. Equivalent to a human dragging a Blue Whale down the beach.

Tugger can also drive forward, turn left or right and when he wants to get to work pulling on things he plants his foot down and winches away. The secret though is less in the winch than it is in the foot.

The Most Hilarious Form of Self Torture Ever, Speech Jammer Storytime…

Speech Jammers have taken the internet by storm over recent months. The Jammer itself is a simple gadget that till now really had no purpose, other than to shut people up. Then everyone realized the hilarious potential of these humble headphones. The sheer delight of watching a person try to speak coherently while their brain is doing back-flips.

The effect of the headphones isolating you from your own voice and add to that playing back with a delay causes and massive confusion reigns in the speech centers of your brain. Causing a kind of stumbling mumbling speech that gets funnier as the speaker tries to speak faster.
