Smart Meter may help CO2 reduction while puts you in control of your energy cost.
By 2015 something like 250 million smart meters will be installed worlwide.
According to a new report from Pike Research, more than 250 million smart meters will be installed worldwide by 2015, representing a penetration rate of 18% of all electrical meters by that time, up from 46 million in 2008.
A 150$ Cisco Router, together their Flip video camera, will be a threat for Apple TV?
Cisco Systems, which acquired the Flip products in March, has come out with the FlipShare TV –- a set of products that helps people transfer their videos from a Flip camera to a PC and then to a television.
The FlipShare TV has three parts. First, there’s basically a small router that connects to a TV via composite cables (the red, white and yellow ones) or an HDMI cable for better quality. Then, there’s a USB stick that plugs into a home computer. Finally, there’s a remote control.
Just an iPhone and a small Chemical Sensor to read your Health status… it’s so interesting and awesome!

Jing Li, a physical scientist at NASA’s Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, Calif., along with other researchers working under the Cell-All program in the Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Directorate, developed a proof of concept of new technology that would bring compact, low-cost, low-power, high-speed nanosensor-based chemical sensing capabilities to cell phones.
The device Li developed is about the size of a postage stamp and is designed to be plugged in to an iPhone to collect, process and transmit sensor data.
