Steve Wozniak Showing Off His NIXIE Tube Watch

The ultimate geek toy

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak shows us that a nixie tube watch is probably a better idea in theory than it is in practice. It’s so bulky. Sure looks like a lot of trouble he has to go through just to change the time zone. Never mind that, if they could just make these things a whole lot smaller, we’d really be lusting after one.
Woz also talks about how his fellow passengers start to get worried when he adjusts his nixie watch, which to the uninitiated might look like a crude bomb triggering device. Also of interest is how he can smuggle a ceramic knife on board an aircraft without being arrested. We weren’t aware he flew commercial.

But they only come in blue. We put several coats of red Krylon on the head piece after we drill some holes for attaching the upper holder for the miniaturized feeding tube.

Wearable Robotic Arm

Wearable Robotic Arm 

Tail-wrist-II

Paraplegics and the elderly often face problems with their joints and muscle movements. When stuck to bed owing to their illness, patients tend to develop contraction of muscles that could be irreversible, and regular range of motion exercises through physiotherapy is the only alternative left. There are a few muscle and joint extractors available to assist, but Tail-wrist-II seems to be a novel makeover in the category. Developed by Hideyuki Tsukakoshi, assistant professor of Mechanical Control Systems at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, the Tail-wrist-II is designed to prevent contraction of muscles and joints.

Trans-Atlantic Supersonic Maglev Vacuum Tube Train

 Trans-Atlantic Supersonic Maglev Vacuum Tube Train
 Piece of cake.  No serious engineering needed here

The idea is as wondrous as it is audacious: Get on a train at New York City’s Penn Station and hit Paris, London or Brussels just an hour later. “From an engineering point of view there are no serious stumbling blocks,” says Ernst Frankel, retired professor of ocean engineering at MIT.
