Here is a good project for anyone with a 3D printer. In this project as described in the first episode of the Mojoptix podcast and video series, we see a demonstration of how to create a 3D printed sundial that can display the time in digital format without electronics.
The sundial works by allowing light to pass through a carefully arranged array of "tiny tunnels" that turn the individual pixels of the display off and on as the Sun moves through the sky.
For anyone interested but unable to 3D-print the parts themselves, kits are available for purchase that come with all the parts needed to assemble the device.

Just when I thought Send Me To Heaven was the best prank ever dealt to mobile phone types, Apple nixes the headphone jack and someone comes along to exploit the void. Bravo, you internet wag. Bra-VO.

You would think that some of these are so basic and common sense but people still place their routers in really stupid places.

Anyone who's ever bought a new electronic device or pair of shoes will be all too familiar with those little "DO NOT EAT" sachets that come in the box. Most of us have a vague idea that they're somehow keeping our products fresh, but toss them as soon as the box is open without a second thought.

But it turns out that just might be one of the worst ideas ever because, as Eames Yates reports for Business Insider, these free sachets can be used for a whole range of life hacks that can save you time, energy, and money. And we're never throwing one out again.

Designers at China's Dalian Nationalities University have created the Bike Washing Machine, a combination bicycle and laundry machine that lets users exercise and wash their clothes at the same time. The machine replaces the front wheel of a traditional bicycle with a washing machine drum, and as the user pedals they can power a display screen or store the generated electricity.

In a Russian shopping mall, handicapped parking spaces are protected by technology. If you have a handicapped sticker, no problem. If you are lacking one, a man in a wheelchair tells you how rude, selfish, and wrong you are for taking his spot.

Wind turbines kill birds. Dams kill endangered species. Burning coal and oil kills everything. Nuclear is a disaster waiting to happen. Just how do we get our electrical energy? Water pipes may be the answer.

Imagine, if you will, one of those little drone helicopters with all the rotors that're so popular with the teens these days. Now make it bigger, big enough to sit a couple of people in - it's the Volocopter.
