Phonebloks Modular Smartphone Design

Consumer technology goods continues to fill our landfills, with smartphones being one of the main contributors. One problem is that a broken speaker or screen can render most smartphones obsolete.

To combat this disposable-system, Dave Hakkens has thought up Phonebloks. With his new smartphone design, individual hardware pieces become easily removable and upgradeable with a simple modular design. 

The only question is, can this science fiction become a reality?

Bicycle Powered Tree House Elevator

Ethan Schlussler is in the process of building a house up a 30 feet tree. The house is progressing nicely, but one big issue that arose was climbing up and down the tree constantly while working on it. 

To solve this problem, Ethan created his very own Bicycle Powered Tree House Elevator that works surprisingly well. Too cool! He’s well on his way to out do the Swiss Family Robinson family.

Comedian Eric Buss has just unveiled his newest invention that very well may change the world, but definitely won’t.

He hacked an everyday bicycle to include a large roll of bubble wrap that would feed under the front wheel. As Eric peddled on his bike, the wheels would endless roll over the bubble wrap to create noise as loud as firecrackers.

Bawku posted this commercial for the GrOpener last November, but the video has only exploded onto the viral video scene now, quickly amassing over 300,000 hits.

The GrOpener is a one-handed, patent-pending device to simply and quickly open beer bottles. The name is inspired from Grab Opener, as the user must simple grab the bottle with one hand and flip the lever to open their bottle of suds.

The technological work of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency never ends. Their latest project in collaboration with Boston Dynamics has been ATLAS, a new super-advanced humanoid robot. 

This new video demonstrates the capabilities of ATLAS, including walking up stairs, being pushed while balancing on one foot and not falling, and more!
