Worrying about whether your period may have leaked is theworst.You check seats every time you stand up, go to the toilet a thousand times a day and wearing white is a no no.Now, thanks to a new piece of tech, you can monitor how full your tampon is and prevent those embarrassing leakages.The small device attaches to the string of a specially-formulated tampon and then clips on to either your underwear or clothes.The tampon features an insulated and extremely long string which then connects to the device and enables information to be transmitted from your body to your smartphone.The app not only prevents leaks, but it also lets you monitor your flow on a month-by-month basis.
There s a reason the microwave oven in your kitchen is a heavy brick: it uses a magnetron and vacuum tube technology that dates back to World War II.But since then, microwave technologies have been vastly improved see cellphone towers and a company called Wayv in the UK is finally using them to shrink the microwave oven.The Adventurer looks like nothing more than a fancy thermos, but it s actually a fully-functional 200-watt microwave oven that can efficiently heat 500 milliliters of liquids or solids in about four minutes.Its rechargeable battery will keep it running for up to half an hour, which is more than enough time to reheat a bowl of stew at lunch or a jar of baby food while you re on the road.Instead of vacuum tubes or magnetrons, the Adventurer uses laterally diffused metal oxide semiconductors—or LDMOS—transistors to generate heat.Wayv is planning to bring the adventurer to the United States next year with a price tag of about $200.

The nearly 300-year-old State Hall in Vienna, Austria, boasts carved wooden galleries, baroque-style statues, and frescos, while Taipei's Beitou Branch resembles a treehouse more than a shelter for books.It's one of the oldest libraries in Europe.Source: Visit Copenhagen and arcspace.comThe zebra-like stripes on the University of Aberdeen New Library are insulated panels, cutting energy costs.Bookshelves surround visitors at the Musashino Art University Museum & Library in Tokyo.When the British set aflame the original Library of Congress in 1814, retired President Thomas Jefferson offered his personal collection as the seeds for Washington, DC's new library.
Take a stroll through Kickstarter or Indiegogo and you ll find no shortage of weird, useless, and downright stupid projects out there — alongside some real gems.The project was a massive hit with the crowdfunding community, and the project was a resounding success — but the creators didn t just stop there and call it good.You ve probably never heard of Kopin before, but despite the company s general lack of name recognition, it was way ahead of the wearable curve.Once activated, the box blows a gentle breeze of air over the frozen core and out toward you — and because it s sitting inside an insulated box, it stays chilly for hours before you need to re-freeze it.On the outside, it looks like your average compact wallet.It s slim, its sleek, and it s made out of high-quality leather — but it s more than just that.
The uncrewed Cygnus cargo ship departed the International Space Station ISS on Tuesday at the end of a 12-week stay.The detachment procedure was carried out mainly by NASA controllers back on Earth though ISS astronauts Tim Kopra and Tim Peake also offered some assistance during the operation.Five hours after leaving the space station, NASA set the ship alight.The findings could also validate NASA s material selection criteria, and offer better understanding about how microgravity and limited oxygen affect flame size.These will form part of a remote sensing satellite constellation that provides global ship tracking and weather monitoring.A couple of days later, however, Cygnus will experience an altogether more serious burning sensation as it disintegrates upon re-entering Earth s atmosphere somewhere high over the Pacific Ocean.
GIFFor some reason every superpower has to come with a downside.The X-Men, for example, are rejected from society for being mutants.It turns out it can, you just need to be a mad scientist like Colin Furze, and build your superpowers yourself.In Furze s latest series of videos, he turns a mish-mash of insulated tubing, compressed cylinders, valves, and a vat of liquid nitrogen into a wearable rig that gives him the same powers as the X-Men s Iceman—mostly.His blast range is limited and he probably couldn t survive a day in the Arctic without a snowsuit, but with his newfound scientific powers Furze can freeze water, air condition a room, and even make his own ice cream.What else could you ever really need from a superpower?
During CES 2015, we got a look at the Kube, a combination Bluetooth speaker and cooler that could offer up hot tunes while keeping your favorite beverages cool.In the meantime, numerous Kickstarter-funded projects popped up with various takes on the idea, but none of them seemed to take the ultra-premium approach of the Kube.The speaker may not be out yet, but at CE Week in new York, we got a chance to spend some hands-on time with it, as shown in the video above.Whether or not this is an essential purchase likely depends a lot on the type of person you are, but if money is no object and you want the best cooler / speaker combo possible, this is probably your best bet.Bluetooth isn t the only name of the game when it comes to connectivity here, with AirPlay and built-in streaming from Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, and more.No exact release date has been specified so far, but the Kube will begin shipping in September.
Sous Vide cooking is appealing because it promises restaurant level results in the comfort of your own home.By maintaining a constant, precisely-controlled temperature, you don t have to worry about overcooking expensive steaks or delicate seafood.The ChefSteps model I m testing is the Beta version, sent to me by the company, and—as much as it pains me to do so— I will be sending it back when I m done testing it out.Anova Precision Cooker $199 for WiFi enabled model, $179 for Bluetooth enabled model : The Anova Precision Cooker has been the sous vide device to buy for some time now, with many of the top voices in home cooking singing its praises.ChefSteps Joule $299, $205 if you pre-order : Seattle-based cooking site ChefSteps is releasing their own device in September, and it looks like a worthy contender to the sous vide throne.The Hardware: The Joule Is Smaller and Mightier, but Absolutely Requires the App to Use

Looking up at the summer sky, it is the luminous moon, the brilliant stars and the occasional meteor that draw our attention.Human beings are visual creatures, and we build our everyday model of the world based on what we see.In sensory deprivation experiments, people are isolated from external stimuli.They float in specialized swimming pools, within dark sound-insulated rooms.Under those conditions, people invariably begin to supply their own stimuli.Unmoored, floating, bathed in a featureless, preternaturally bright pure white, I didn t know where I was or which way I pointed.

As a general rule, I don t believe in miniaturising things for the sake of miniaturising them, and that includes dogs and baked goods.But this tiny house is an exception.It s called France, and it s a prototype designed by Joshua Woodsman of Pin-Up Houses, which sells plans for sheds, cottages, and tiny houses.According to Woodsman, his latest creation only costs $1,200/£909, and takes a team of three people about three hours to put together.Woodsman says the prefabricated tiny house has 21 insulated panels connected by threaded rods.It comes with three sections—red, white, and blue—that feature a sleeping space, a day zone with a table and chairs, and a tiny kitchen.

Cryogenics and sleeping pods are a common sci-fi trope, but the idea of intentionally freezing the ill or 'declared dead' until such a time when science may revive them from their mortal slumber isn't so far-fetched – at least according to supporters of the practice."I figure the future is a pretty decent place to be, so I want to be there," says Max More, CEO of Alcor, one of the largest cryonics companies currently in existence.Founded back in 1972, the self-described 'Life Extension Foundation' currently has 1,100 post-mortem 'patients' stored in towering, vacuum-insulated silver capsules at its Arizona-based facilities.Each 'dewar' is regularly topped up with liquid nitrogen, which keeps the bodies inside at a cool 196 degrees below zero.Critical to the entire process is maintaining the patients' biological integrity after their last breath.Essentially, today's doctors are saying, 'there's nothing much more I can do for this patient, I could try and revive them for a while, but they're just going to die again'.
After completely wowing us with its new line of Marvel and DC Comics secret identity and alter-ego formal wear, Fun.com is back with a line of winter coats and snowsuits that will make you envious of every 10-year-old who s out sledding while dressed like Iron Man, Batman, the Hulk, and other superheroes.Even the Superman, Thor, and Captain America versions are fan-freaking-tastic, despite those characters being less of a fan favorite.Each coat is completely water-repellent and insulated, but also feature custom-shaped zipper pulls and buttons, pockets for electronics and lift tickets, a removable hood, wrist gaiters to keep the sleeves pulled down, and adjustable straps so it always fits snugly.They range in price from $80 to $100 if you pre-order, with delivery expected sometime in November.Fun.com has also added a collection of Marvel and DC-themed winter gear for adults, but the designs are a little more toned down and aren t quite as role-playing-compatible as the kids coats are.However, there is an adult version of that Iron Man snowsuit you will undoubtedly happily wear the next time you go snowboarding.

Some of our best outerwear material comes from our fellow Earth-dwelling mammals, such as goose down and wool.Two years ago, however, a trio of college students turned their gaze to the stars for material inspiration and formed Oros Apparel.What sets Oros offerings apart is its use of SolarCore Aerogel, the lowest conductive solid in existence, which is also what NASA uses to insulate its space suits.Thanks to this material technology, Oros claims that it can make the world s thinnest and warmest jacket.The difference in all our outerwear is the SolarCore technology, explained Michael Markesbery, CEO and co-founder of Oros Apparel.To test the insulating qualities of SolarCore, Oros blasted a jacket with liquid nitrogen to bring the outside temperature down to -321 degrees Fahrenheit, while the inside remained a toasty 89 F.
