Automatic is an app that tracks, analyzes, and encourages users to improve their driving habits. After the Automatic Link is plugged into a car's data port, the "smart driving assistant" can monitor users' driving habits and prompt drivers when their actions waste gas. The app provides a weekly driving score with information on how to save fuel, and also shows where your car is parked. If your check engine light comes on, the app will notify you and offer possible solutions, and if you're in a crash Automatic will notify 911 of your situation and location. Automatic Links for iOS and Android are currently available for pre-order, the iOS model will ship in May, and an Android version will be available this fall.

Jason Allemann built this very clever LEGO ball clock that displays time using balls on a series of tracks. Three tiers of tracks are used to display time: the bottom track is hours, the middle track is 10 minute increments, and the top track is minutes. The LEGO Ball Clock is based on the rolling ball clock, a 70s novelty clock that was designed by Harley Mayenschein.

Time Twister consists of two LEGO Mindstorms bricks communicating via Bluetooth. The master brick keeps track of the time and handles the minute digits. The slave brick handles the hour digits and the second indicator.
Each digit is made up of five layers with black and white tiles layed out in different patterns. Each layer can rotate 360 degrees before it hooks to the next layer. By twisting the top layer back and forth in a specific pattern, you can arrange the layers so that the desired digit is displayed.

if machines could even slightly surpass human intellect, they could improve their own designs in ways unforeseen by their designers, and thus recursively augment themselves into far greater intelligences ... it would become better at becoming more intelligent, which could lead to a cascade of self-improvements and a sudden surge to superintellignece (or a singularity).

Researchers at Rice University have developed a lithium-ion battery that can be painted on virtually any surface. "This means traditional packaging for batteries has given way to a much more flexible approach that allows all kinds of new design and integration possibilities for storage devices," said Ajayan, Rice's Benjamin M. and Mary Greenwood Anderson Professor in Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science and of chemistry.
