Links from the Gregg Zone!

1) First up for the week is another of those advancements in technology where I think we get the biggest bang for our buck, helping people who have problems to solve. Kind of like the exoskeleton, a few weeks back, but a little more conventional, although not much. This has to be the coolest wheel chair ever to hit the market place. It will be a wonderful future if this becomes the main stream, I do believe technology is our evolution as a species. If you are unfamiliar with this item, you should check it out.

2) This item might appeal to the geek in some of you. It strikes me as an example of someone with way to much time on their hands, but I will leave it up to you. It is a musical composition using only the sounds found in windows XP, and 98, I thought it was interesting but to long. Amazing what you can accomplish during a three month bout with cabin fever,

3) Now to answer the question, are there people out there in their garages inventing our future? Or, at least trying, using the internet in an attempt to breakthrough to the masses, well yes there are. Here is an example of a man and his son with a dream, while I do not think they are going to make it, I have to give them credit for trying. If they can get the numbers they talk about it would be most impressive, but they really need a design man, at least when it comes to curb appeal.

4) In the do it yourself department I found this one, would be a great project for kids. It is an easy and not to complicated way to build your own world clock, for a few pennies. Looks like it works pretty well to me, although I have little need for one, as a teaching aid it might have some value.

5) In the green planet department for the week how about a lamp that runs on gravity, and will last 200 years, now that is hard to beat. Very cool, check it out here.
