How Much Energy Do Your Home Appliances Use? VISIUALISATION

With this data visualisation tool, you can see how much power each of your appliances use. You can also see how much it costs ($) and how much it consumes in gallons of gas.

Clicking on various appliances turns them on or off. An overall energy consumption rate is calculated in the lower right corner of the tool.

A hair dryer uses more power than a room air conditioner. O_o

Nice Advert for Nissan Leaf Electric car

Electric cars are a  great idea, but how is the electricity produced? 
I believe electricity production would be a lot cleaner in the near future anyway.

Solar Hand-Bag. Charges your phone during the day

Unlike most solar hand-bags and backpacks, this one doesn't look that bad.

The Solar Handbag from Diffus, a Danish design studio, integrates 100 "solar sequins" in a pattern that ladies may actually find socially acceptable, perhaps even attractive. During the day, the bag is capable of generating 2 watts of power, enough to charge many portable gadgets. After the sun sets, however, any leftover energy is redirected to a set of optical fibers, which glow whenever you open the bag to search for mascara, ABC gum stuffed in crumbled receipts, or whatever else you've decided may never leave your side. There's no word on whether the bag will actually come to market, but if it does go to production, it may just end up being affordable, given that many handbag budgets far exceed the amount we set aside for gadgets. -Engadget

Funky-Music Apps (Must have!)

  • The  first music app I'm going to briefly talk about is iAmBeatbox. This app is too cool. You can make sick beats with this thing just by moving the 'gems' around the grid. It's a lot of fun. Let this video demonstrate a little.

Cool Photo-editing Apps

In the next few days, I will be posting some cool apps you must should have on your phone. I use an iPhone btw. If you don't have an iPhone, don't lose hope yet, as you can find similar apps on your own platform(Most of the time) :-)

"ColorSplash is super easy and fun to use. You simply use your finger as a brush to remove or bring back the original color from regions of your image. Using a two finger pinching gesture you can quickly zoom in and out in order to work on fine details or larger areas."

This is was what I was able to do with the app.... B-)

It was free when i got it... Even if it costs anything now, It shouldn't be much. Try it!
