Featured here is the G1 glass pool table. The fully transparent surface of the G1 is constructed from a toughened glass and protected with a special resin leaving it with the feel of a typical pool table. Users claim they don’t notice a difference in the “feel” of the table or an effect on their game. I can imagine it would effect my game at least until I became used to seeing through the table. An additional effect is being able to watch the sunk balls as they travel down a rack that hangs from the support beams of the table to the holding tray. The price of this rich mans toy runs about $25,000. Enjoy.
I reported on the wireless charger concept quite a while back with WiTricity or wireless electricity. The Powermat wireless charger is in major retailers now. I have personally seen them on the shelves at Best Buy. You will need to purchase the receiver for your device which runs about $30 USD for an item such as the Iphone. The Powermat itself has a sticker price of $99.
This spring Honda Research Institute revealed their efforts in new technology that allows the human mind to control the actions of a humanoid robot. Asimo the humanoid robot can perform simple actions controlled by the monitoring of electricity and blood flow in a persons skull.
