Will Smart Contact Lenses Be the Bluetooth Headsets of the Future? | A Sense of the Ridiculous | Scoop.it
Imagine instant access to the latest market segment information at a meeting, or seeing the fourth quarter earnings for a company in (literally) the blink of an eye.

 

Scientists at the University of Washington are working on solar powered contact lenses with transparent LEDs embedded onto the lens. This technology could be applied in countless ways, from health monitoring to text translation right in front of the wearer's eyes.

How To Heat Up Your Room Using Just a Candle: Kandle Heeter! | The Green Optimistic

How To Heat Up Your Room Using Just a Candle: Kandle Heeter! | The Green Optimistic | A Sense of the Ridiculous | Scoop.it
Doyle Doss, a Northern California Inventor, has created a candle powered space heater. It sounds like science fiction, but it really is a simple and green energy device, that could save you a lot of money by only lighting a candle, in the long run.

Withnail's comment, January 16, 2012 6:45 AM
"Warm up? We may as well sit round this cigarette." I think this will probably give out as much heat as a candle, although it may be able to store the heat and release it more slowly. N.B. Heat is not the same thing as temperature. An object can reach a high temperature without emitting much energy (heat), especially if it is very small. The sparks from a sparkler are thousands of degrees celsius, but do not burn you, whereas a bath at 90 degrees C would kill you. Also greenoptimistic.com has disclaimers about the accuracy of its information. With good reason. There's a lot of shall we say, "overly optimistic" stuff on the site, the kind of optimism that PT Barnum would have loved.

Lol! Thanks for that @Withnail - I didn't really consider the output, I kinda just liked the 'Bill and Ben' look :)

You are welcome, a bit disturbing though. I gave up alcohol, never really enjoyed it, gave up tobacco after heart attack, not sure how easy it would be to give up the internet!
