You might have a great love for cycling, but there are also safety concerns for you to think about. After all, the bicycle is not the largest vehicle on the road, and if you were to ride at night, lowered visibility would work against you. Hence, it is always important to wear the right clothes at night, including a reflective vest of sorts. This particular Indiegogo project that is known as the Supaheroe happens to be a high tech safety cycling jacket that would help you stand out from the rest of the crowd, literally. Designed by Wolfgang Langeder and engineered by Fraunhofer IZM and Stretchable Circuits, it will cost a whopping $1,850 a pop which would clearly put it out of reach of many people.
What would you do if you were to grow an extra limb? Embrace the oddity as well as advantage of it all, of course! Jason Barnes from Atlanta who had his right arm amputated from below the elbow two years back was on the receiving end of a robotic prosthetic arm, thanks to a certain Profession Weinberg, where this particular robotic arm is capable of manipulating a pair of drumsticks. The first stick will be controlled with electrical signals emitted from his upper arm muscles, while the other stick can tune in to the music being played, where it will then have an algorithm that helps it improvise on its very own beat. Not quite General Grievous in the Star Wars universe, but we’re on our way there.
