Needless to say, I look at their stuff often. Just to see what they are up to.



Wireless Electricity – Tesla’s Dream

Standing on the shoulders of GIANTs this guy is on to what we should have been doing for years.

Eric Giler wants to untangle our wired lives with cable-free electric power. Here, he covers what this sci-fi tech offers, and demos MIT’s breakthrough version, WiTricity — a near-to-market invention that may soon recharge your cell phone, car, pacemaker.

About Eric Giler
As the CEO of MIT-inspired WiTricity, Eric Giler has a plan to beam electric power through the air to wirelessly power your laptop or recharge your car. You may never plug in again.



IBM Scientists First to Image the Anatomy of a Molecule

This is amazing stuff.
I wonder what then next thing will be?

As reported in the August 28 issue of Science magazine, IBM Research Zurich scientists Leo Gross, Fabian Mohn, Nikolaj Moll and Gerhard Meyer, in collaboration with Peter Liljeroth of Utrecht University, used an AFM operated in an ultrahigh vacuum and at very low temperatures ( 268oC or 451oF) to image the chemical structure of individual pentacene molecules. With their AFM, the IBM scientists, for the first time ever, were able to look through the electron cloud and see the atomic backbone of an individual molecule. While not a direct technological comparison, this is reminiscent of X-rays that pass through soft tissue to enable clear images of bones.



Chemistry and BANG!

Chemistry – Cool

Lots of experiments here, Thermite, Explosives, frozen bombs, and other cool stuff. Watch a few classice videos of stuff so dangerous that NOBODY trys them now in a classroom. Enjoy classic science we no longer teach to kids and college students.



Make your own metal detector

Kinda geeky, but cheap and works!

Or just buy one below



Einstein and the Philidelphia Experiment

A long one, but very odd. History Channel Video. Funny how conspiracy theories and myths came along.



Tesla – More about the Man

This man is so important to our way of life that we could NOT be here without him. We would be far behind. Everything I learn about him makes me more amazed. His coming to the USA was a gift. He was under appreciated, and most of his late work is still classified US Secrets.



Lesson from MIT on Electricity and Magnetism

Ever wonder how you can get some great classroom knowledge from MIT? Online of course! Another great lecture, I am very impressed with the “Review” before the test for the students. All the math, formulas, and explainations to take a solid smart person and give them more! Thanks MIT, you made my day!

Try to stay Awake for all that Math and enjoy the WILD HAIR (Einstein wannabe?) and Clothing choices of the instructor!
