Seismic Cloak Could Protect Your House, But Your Neighbors Won’t Be Happy

When someone starts talking about cloaking devices and technology, I immediately reference the Romulan tech of Star Trek. However, when it comes to earthquakes, scientists are working on a way to cloak entire structures from tremors.

STM Grip iPad Case: Colorful Kickstands for Adults & Kids

iPad cases comes in all shapes, sizes and colors, but there are only a few that work well if you have rambunctious kids wanting to play with them. While I’m all for having specifically kid-like cases for iPads, when you take it out of your home to work, it does look a bit strange (imagine taking the iGuy to the office!).

Moshi iGlaze iPad VersaCover: The Origami Cover That Goes Both Ways

The Apple Smart Cover works reasonably well to prop up the iPad, but if that’s not enough for you, then check out the Moshi iGlaze with VersaCover. It basically works in a similar manner to the Smart Cover, except that users can fold it in more ways to get the most out of it.

Scooter Commuting Vista

Scooter Lights

A couple of weeks ago, I was in Taipei, on the bottom of Fuxing North Road. I was stopped at a light and waiting for it to change. It was nearing to the end of the count. As usual, more and more scooters and cars tried to get through before the lights changed to red. This was on a Saturday, so traffic was somewhat light compared to the rush hour. The light changed, and I was ready to go, when I saw that more scooters were trying to get through. Some of them thought that they could go through the light, but obviously couldn’t. Traffic started moving, and one girl was driving too fast for her own good. She tried to turn away from the traffic, but hit another scooter. Then she hit the pavement. She was wearing a helmet, but it wasn’t a full face helmet. Luckily she wasn’t going too fast. I left to run my errands.

Stuff like that happens all of the time in Taipei. People aren’t careful enough when riding their scooters and rarely wear enough protection. These things go fast. My new scooter reaches 110 kph, pretty quickly.
