Creativity Plus Technology Equals Awesome Origami Bulletproof Shield

When creativity meets technological genius. This is a Kevlar ballistics shield inspired by the art of folding paper. It was created by professors in mechanical engineering Larry Howell and Terri Bateman and their colleagues at Brigham Young University.

This shield has 14 layers of Kevlar with an aluminum core, can be deployed very quickly (5 seconds) and has a great angle of protection, which covers up to three people. Compared to the usual shield (90+ lbs) it is half the weight (55 lbs). Because of the way it folds, it saves a lot of space (reduces its size by 4 times) and protects against 9 mm .357 Magnum and .44 Magnum handguns (tested).

Does it not remind you of Star wars?! Hopefully it makes it into the market. The concept is amazing but I think that it’ll be a long time before this amazing origami shield will start doing its job. Maybe one day, in the near future, we will have force field shields!

While Everything is Getting “Smart”, Do We Really Need Smart… Socks?

It’s not just because you can do something that you should actually do it. Or at least, we fail to see why adding connectivity to your freaking socks is of any importance at all. That hasn’t stopped a company called Blacksocks from creating the Calf Socks Classic with Plus+. Yeah… Smart Socks.

Imagine your phone could communicate with your socks. Your phone would know:

– which socks belong together,and could help sort them out,
– how often you have washed your socks,
– when your socks were produced,
– when you ordered your socks and
– when your socks were dispatched.
– Your iPhone can also tell you if your black socks are no longer properly black and help you buy new socks.

This is something we dreamed about and we have made the dream come true. The result is Smarter Socks – probably the smartest socks in the world. They are undoubtedly the first socks which leave their mark on the internet via the Sock Sorter and your iPhone.

We can just imagine the company meeting where these socks were born, and how many ideas were thrown about until something stuck. We admire the company’s enthusiasm and hopefulness, but given the $189 price tag (for socks!!), we’re not sure the market will respond as enthusiastically.

How to Beat the Flu Season with Technology

Using Technology to Beat Flu Season? It's Downright Possible These Days

I’ve nursed a cough for nearly a month when the year has started. I had worst days, but coughing and sneezing are affecting my productivity. It’s also kind of embarrassing when you can’t stop coughing when you’re in public.

So, for you guys to dodge the flu, you can get help from technology. We use technology mostly for entertainment and work. We better use it for our health watch too. Here are ways on how to do that.

Do preventive precautions

As they old healthy saying goes, “Prevention is always better than cure.” For us to avoid flu and stay healthy, we should always be hydrated, get the right amount of sleep and if needed, check on our vital signs. There are gadgets that can help track these like Thermos smart water bottles, Sense sleep monitor, and Withings blood pressure monitor.

Alleviate body pains

Sometimes, body pains come with the flu. Or sometimes, people tend to overlook the chronic pain that they’re feeling because it’s always there and they’ve learned to deal with it. The Quell Pain Relief is a wearable that serves as a revolutionary solution for this. Quell comes with a companion app that lets users set the pressure so pain on certain parts of your body can be minimized.

Monitor body temperature closely

If flu has finally kicked in, what you can do aside from going to the doctor and take the recommended medications, is to monitor your temperature closely. If you have smart thermometers from Kinsa or Withings, you can track your temperature simpler and keep graphs of your readings so you will know if you are getting better or not.

That’s how technology can help us live better. Keeping these smart health products in your home lets you kick flu and sickness in the butt. If you want to take a closer look at these products, you can read our guide on beating the flu season with smart gadgets.
