This compact machine is capable of unravelling proteins, a revolutionary development that has huge implications for the treatment of cancer, the manufacture of pharmaceuticals, the production of biofuels and food processing.
The VFD can do the unthinkable in the process of demonstrating its capabilities - it can unboil an egg.

Picture, if you will, a lamp that requires no sunlight to charge, no batteries to replace, no power cord to plug in. It's the GravityLight, a lamp that runs like your grandpa's clock - lift the weighted drive belt, and the kinetic energy from gravity pulling the weight back down gives you 20 minutes of light. You can still get in on the already-funded indiegogo campaign here!

Truly, everyone loves a Slinky. But what if you loved it so much that you wanted to see it go down stairs endlessly? Here's one look at how to go about it (including several failed attempts).
The Dunkin' Buddy is a plastic device invented by Connecticut-based husband and wife team Kiana Machnicz and Jason Wells that allows for hands-free cookie dunking. The simple gizmo uses magnets to connect the dunker to a handle outside of the cup, saving the user's hands from getting wet in the dunking process.

Much like the Segway, a personal transportation device. Only no handlebars and a very limited range. But it's light (only 9 pounds) and recharges very quickly (about an hour).
Available January 2014.

Meet the Sensebridge Northpaw, an anklet consisting of a directional unit and 8 cellphone vibrators that when worn will teach your body which way is north at all times. In short order, you can ditch the device and never lose your sense of direction again. Fucking brilliant.

The National Center for Craft and Design has selected the un-knitting machine as one of the best student design projects of 2012. This highly unusual bicycle, designed to help recycle unwanted woollen clothes, unravels any clothing item back into its pre-knitted form.
Do you have a complex about your nose? Then reach for the Hana Twin Nose, a much cheaper alternative to plastic surgery and it doesn't hurt either! The makers reckon that 20 minutes per day is enough to strength and straighten your nose to help you achieve that perfect nasal profile you so desire!
When someone rings your doorbell wouldn't it be nice to know about it when you aren't home? Well this project will do just that. Pressing the doorbell will send a message to your cell phone and send you a picture of who is there. You often hear that burglars often ring the doorbell to make sure no one is at home before breaking in. I am thinking that a few of the Arduino outputs could be purposed to spray a water gun and turn on a siren.

This is a fridge magnet that you press to automatically order your favorite pizza combo from Red Tomato Pizza in Dubai. Don't live in Dubai? Then you're stuck ordering online or calling LIKE SOME FUCKING CAVEMAN HOBO.

Behold the BioLite camp stove, a 2-pound portable canister that burns sticks, pine cones, pellets, and other biomass instead of gas or liquid fuel. Not only will it warm your tents and cook your steaks, it will also recharge your TomTom and iPhone.

Stingrays are one of several new technologies used by law enforcement to track people's locations, often without a search warrant. A stingray works by mimicking a cellphone tower, getting a phone to connect to it and measuring signals from the phone. It lets the stingray operator "ping" a phone and locate it as long as it is powered on.

It's not uncommon to see umbrellas in use here in the Valley of the Sun, even though it hardly ever rains. That's because an umbrella is a good way to keep the oppressive sun from turning your skin bubbly in mere seconds. This particular umbrella goes one better, and has a fan inside to help blow some of that 120° heat away from you as well.
