Self-Assembling Chips First Step Towards Extra-Bendy Evil Robots

It may look all innocent, but this little logic circuit is made from organic molecules that lined themselves up to form 300 transistors, without the need for machine production. This kind of chip-in-a-test-tube approach to creating semiconductors, demonstrated as effective for the first time by Philips Research, could… » 10/19/08 5:30pm 10/19/08 5:30pm

Tributaries Flexible Power Strip Bends 90 Degrees

We've seen our share of interesting power strips, but Tributaries' PWRS-T10 has five standard outlets and five twistable outlets that give you a good way to plug in multiple large AC adapters at once. Because each one of the five slots can be twisted at up to 90 degrees, you can position them at say, 0, 45, 90, 45,… » 10/26/07 2:14pm 10/26/07 2:14pm
