The Honda That Travels At The Speed Of Light!

Any Star Wars fan (and, of course, any sci-fi fan) knows that light speed is the shizzle that’s not yet possible, for humans that is. However, that doesn’t mean that we won’t keep trying until we figure it out. As a matter of fact, there are several institutions and scientists that are working on the problem on a daily basis. Progress has to be made with small steps since security is the main concern. I don’t think anyone would want to try it out only ...

Here Is An App That Lets You Own A Talking Cat!

There are so many apps that are developed everyday, and for those of you who have either an iPad or an iPhone, you can attest to the number of hours you probably spend searching for the best ones to use. I like to download utility apps, photography apps and apps that are very entertaining like games. One app that I recently downloaded is called the Talking Tom Cat app. My sister and friend @myniffie have been playing with this app since I downloaded it, and ...

Creative Locks Will Lock Your Doors Beautifully At Night!

Design stretches way farther than we sometimes think about. It’s not limited to pretty pictures, beautiful shapes of a cellphone or the power of a revving engine. It’s a part of everything that you can see or hear. Everything has a certain design that fits the object best, or at least that is what we all think. We have designed and redesigned so many things throughout the years since human beings first picked up a tool, and we have learned that there is no such ...

Design: The Little Blue Cozy Chair Created From Rope

I rarely write about furniture designs, not because I’m not interested in them, but because I don’t often find a piece that speaks to me. However, there is just something about this blue rope chair that I find really interesting. To me, it’s kind of like a fancy beanbag chair for adults, without the beans. This innovative sculptured chair, created by Tom Price, was recently featured at the Museum of Art and Design in New York City. He recently wove five of these chairs together ...

Go Out In Style: The Mercedes-Benz Coffin

Here in the States, most of the time death is associated with a lot of sadness. Many people still wear black to funerals, and there is a lot of crying and mourning. However, it’s not like that in all countries. Surprisingly, in many places, death is viewed as an event to celebrate someone’s life or to rejoice that they have passed on to their next journey. Ghana is one of these places. They view a funeral as a joyful ritual, which eases sadness instead of ...

1989 Flashback: How Lego Bricks Are Made

Out of all the interesting articles on Bit Rebels about Lego bricks, I don’t think we’ve ever covered the most obvious one, which is how Lego bricks are made. Have you ever thought about that before? I’ve noticed that Lego products are more expensive and higher quality than other building block brands. After watching this video from 1989, I understand why. I found it fascinating that there are over 1,300 different Lego brick shapes and each one is cut to 5,000th of a millimeter, making ...

Geek Alert: Brain Cells Under A Microscope!

Back in the 80s during the “Just Say No” anti-drug campaign, I remember listening to the television ads, which said, “Don’t smoke pot, it kills brain cells.” And, of course, we all remember the fried egg commercial that said, “This is your brain, this is your brain on drugs.” I was really young when President Ronald Regan and his wife Nancy started that campaign, and it really had an effect on me. I was scared to death to try any kind of drug because I ...

Signs of Life: What Makes You Feel Alive?

What makes you feel alive in your life? What are those things that make your heart beat fast and let you know that you are actually alive? Those moments when we wake up from the monotonous parts of our day and breathe a little deeper knowing that this is our life and we only get to live each day once are the moments that really count. There is a big difference between playing the game of life to win and playing it not to lose. ...

Angry Birds: Fun and Addictive Game App!

Having an iPhone can be quite handy when we are waiting for a meeting to start or waiting for habitually late friends. We never have to get bored anymore while waiting. Aside from using our iPhone to call and send SMS messages, there are a whole bunch of apps that we can download and have hours and hours of fun with. In addition to updating our social networking sites like FaceBook and Twitter, we can also play a lot of games that can be fun ...

Beware Criminals: McDonald’s Will Spray You With DNA!

This is awesome! I don’t know much about DNA technology, but what I do know is that if a thief leaves a trace of DNA, he’s totally busted. Of course, I learned that from watching CSI: Miami, which is surprisingly educational. Well, McDonald’s is banking on the fact that most criminals agree with my assessment about DNA. A McDonald’s in the Netherlands recently implemented a new system to combat crime. If a thief tries to rob them, he will be sprayed in the face with ...

Now There Are Silly Bandz For Geeks!

When I was in the U.S. last July, before visiting Chicago, we dropped by Tucson to visit with my aunts, uncles and cousins. It was a family reunion since I have not seen them in years. While having dinner at a cousin’s house, my cousin’s girlfriend asked one of our nieces where she got her colorful silly bandz. We were told that it was the craze with kids, and apparently with some adults as well. Silly bandz are colorful elastic bands that come in different ...

Halloween Gift Ideas To Thrill Any Geek!

When October comes, the first thing that comes to mind is Halloween! It may not be as big here in Manila as in the other parts of the world, but we are getting there. The fun part of Halloween is dressing up in cute or really scary costumes. Not only do kids enjoy this holiday, but also adults. People host Halloween parties and even decorate their house to look really spooky. However, what if your friend’s birthday falls on a Halloween?  Or what if you ...

Photography: Colorful Thread Transformed Into Stunning Artwork

These beautiful, colorful linear installations aren’t computer generated. Designer Sebastien Preschoux sets these up himself, outside in the natural world. He likes working in the forest, among the trees. According to an interview on Trendland, Sebastien likes working outside because, “no one disturbs you, you take the time you want, the time you need.” He uses thread to create these lines and to create graphics in places where there were none before. After stretching the thread in the forest between the tree branches very precisely, ...
