London's City Wide WiFi To Come Before Olympics

London’s Mayor, Boris Johnson has promised to bring city wide WiFi to London prior to the 2012 Olympics. Boris Johnson was speaking at a Google event in Hetfordshire and he has promised that every lamp post and every bus stop in London will one day very soon have WiFi. The project is called ‘Wireless London’ and it is part of Boris Johnson’s try to make London the technological center of the World.

Whether or not they will be able to put this into operation before the 2012 Olympics remains to be seen, as a number of cities around the world have tried to pull this off before without much accomplishment. There are no details on whether the WiFi will be free, or if you will have to pay some sort of fee to use it.

Update Your Drivers In Just Minutes

One thing we should do in order for our computers to function properly is to update all our drivers because outdated drivers may lead to reduced PC performance or hardware malfunction. Drivers are very essential to any computer since they let the operating system communicate with the computer hardware. Computer parts require a driver because they do not employ typical commands.

Drivers are downloadable and can be found online. But it can really take us hours of searching before we can find the correct one. Luckily, I’ve stumbled on a site that can answer our problems within minutes. It’s pretty mind-boggling but it’s a fact. DriverAccess can fix outdated drivers in a jiffy.

Cord-Free Tetra Nightlight

With totally no cords attached to this nightlight, you can put it anywhere you like. You won’t be restricted by the location of outlets within your home. Just find a dark corner that you’d like to brighten up and leave it there. It’s actually made for a child’s room, but it won’t discriminate between adults and children. It’d be happy to offer light to all ages.

This looks like an odd little milk carton, so it would be even cuter if your child has a toy kitchen of some kind. To turn it on you just press the button that’s directly on the bottom. You won’t have to be troubled about it hurting anyone, because it doesn’t have a single hot spot on the light. In order to keep it powered you just need 3 AAA batteries.

Try Lock Bumping

Believe it or not but there will always come a time that you just simply forget something. I mean really a “thing”. One common object that we usually forget is our keys. It maybe keys to the house, keys to the car or even keys to your vault or something. We usually fail to remember to bring our keys with us or where we’ve put them previously. Well that’s ok when you have an extra key along with you. But what if you don’t have a spare key at all?

You should try lock bumping. It’s a lock picking method for opening a pin tumbler lock using a specially-crafted bump key. This is very useful especially when you’re in a hurry and forgot to bring your keys. When used accurately, a bump key can easily and rapidly unlock just about any lock the key fits into. Yes, there are bump keys for different key brands. That includes a Schlage bump key. Bump keys are available online if you’re interested in buying. You can choose from a single bump key to a set of bump keys. But you can make a bump key of your own if you want. Tutorials in using bump keys are also available online.

Just remember one thing though. I’m sharing this method because this was made to help people and NOT to intrude other people’s property. It’s still up to you. Peace guys!

LOLA Humanoid Robot

A group of German researchers has developed an interesting robot called LOLA. LOLA is a humanoid robot that walks on two legs at a snail’s pace right now. The researchers hope to increase her speed to that of the average walking human in the future.

The cool part is that LOLA can walk around all on her own using the pair of HD webcams she has for eyes to avoid obstacles. The robot is 180cm tall, weighs in at 60kg, and has 25 joints in its body.

New Swatch Watch Concept

Designed by Allen George, this concept Swatch watch design is aimed at a young market that needs a vigorous timepiece which can take knocks but preserve a unique style.

Allen’s design has removed the glass completely which has been replaced by a rubberized protection pad that allows only the tips of the hands to be viewed at the edge.

The design echoes one of the very first Swatch watches to be launched by Swatch which was completely black. Unfortunately this design is currently only a concept.

Paw Plunger for your Dogs

Alright dogs need to go outside to do their business, even on exceptionally rainy days. Then when they go traipsing through the house they leave their muddy footprints all over the floor. Now with kids you can bellow out for them to wipe off their feet, making it so you don’t have to mop every 2 minutes. Sadly yelling that out to the dog usually just makes them drop their head and leave the footprints a little slower than normal. This Paw Plunger may look silly, but at least it keeps your carpets clean.

On the inside it has soft bristles, then you just slowly move their paws up and down within the plunger. That is after you fill it up with some warm water. The bristles will knock off all of that dirt and the water cleans off any excess dirt. You can also apparently use it to do medicinal soaks and to melt the ice balls that attach themselves to your dog’s paws.

The Rain Drum Concept

If you’ve ever enjoyed the way the rain sounds when it hits a metal roof, then you’ll love this umbrella. It keeps you dry, but not like other umbrellas. Others just give soft little pitter patters, whereas this one will sound more like a drum. Sure, you’ll probably make everyone else around you a little crazy, but at least you’ll have a little rhythm while you’re out walking in the rain.

The umbrella has all sorts of sections on it that makes it look a bit like a toy drum set. Each one of those parts will make a different sound when the raindrops hit. It has a snare, tom-tom and bass drum. Plus a crash symbol and a hi-hat symbol. Of course this is only a pretty little concept design as of now, so there won’t be any way to purchase it for a while if ever.

The Broom Groomer

If you do not have the ability to purchase a vacuum cleaner and still rely on good old hand power using a broom, why not settle for the most efficient broom possible? That is now available in the form of the Broom Groomer, where it comes with a row of rubber teeth protruding from the back end of the dust pan to clean the broom’s bristles when you’re done sweeping, doing away with dust bunnies for good.

Apart from that, there is a built-in foot rest at the dustpan handle, letting you steady the dustpan for hands-free sweeping. The body of the Broom Groomer itself is made out of hard, durable plastic, featuring rubber accents on the handle grip, wall-hanging hole, bristle cleaning teeth, and front edge guard.

ClamCase for the Ipad

Are you still missing a portable full size keyboard for your iPad? The Clamcase can help you convert your iPad back into a laptop. Once your iPad is inserted into the case the keyboard connects to the iPad via Bluetooth.

It seems like a good idea on the surface but it might be missing the whole point of the iPad and running a keyboard via Bluetooth will definitely eat your batteries to the core over time.

Unfortunately there aren’t many other details available at the moment but the Clamcase is expected to be shipping sometime in the fall this year.
