Generate Electricity While you Play

March 15, 2013 Leave a comment

Energy Harvesting is a growing field that may become significant in our lives someday.  Here’s a link to a great article on harvesting energy from a soccer ball.  Looks like it’s making a debut on Kickstarter, too.

While the article isn’t explicit about real world application, I imagine a model where the kids go out to play soccer for an hour or two and then the ball is brought back so the energy can be consumed.  What I’d like to know is do child labor laws apply?  😉

PlayLater: Online PVR Bliss?

March 14, 2013 Leave a comment

Check out http://www.playlater.tv.  I’ve been researching ways to cut cable without getting the shakes too hard.  This looks like a potentially handy tool.

On another note, I wonder if this is another way to get your Netflix content on a Linux box.  It’s probably a few extra steps, but might be handy.

Let us know if you’ve tried it out!
