Noria Air Conditioner
Noria updates the traditional window air conditioner with a fresh, modern design and an app-based interface that works with iOS & Android devices. At just 6-inches tall, it is lightweight & easy to install. At 5,000 BTU it will quickly & efficiently cool a 10 X 16 room. It also features a fresh air mode that eliminates the compressor to simply circulate fresh air in from outside.
Smart Health Talk Top Greening Your Life Tip. Solar Powered Window Socket. Are these awesome or what. Think of the applications. How about hotel rooms where they never have enough plugs. Could you carry one with you everywhere just in case of an emergency and your cell phone was dying. Just shows what kinds of things we could invent.
Turn your $60 router into a $600 router
Of all the great DIY projects at this year's Maker Faire, the one project that really caught my eye involved converting a regular old $60 router into a powerful, highly configurable $600 router. The router has an interesting history, but all you really need to know is that the special sauce lies in embedding Linux in your router. I found this project especially attractive because: 1) It's easy, and 2) it's totally free.
