Despite the iPhone not being one of the top radiation emitting mobile devices currently available, there’s no stopping some from salvaging the opportunity to create an accessory with that focus in mind. Pong or Pong Research have created an iPhone case which claims to reduce radiation released by the iPhone by up to 60%.

Boy do we love OLEDs and this one especially. This latest demonstration of OLED technology was brought to our attention by Kodak. We all know these amazing displays can be twisted and bent but we didn’t know they could also be submerged into a bucket of water! OLEDs are known to be notoriously moisture-sensitive, this allowed the Kodak researchers team to display a fishy image on the flexible display once it sensed that it was dipped into water. Check them out, it is truly quite an achievement!

Nissan’s second attempt (after the Altima Hybrid) to actually become known as a green(ish) automaker in America? The Nissan Leaf is a four-to-five seat, front-drive C-segment hatchback.

Nissan’s main selling point for the Leaf is not just that its a specialty urban runabout, but rather, it was designed as an everyday vehicle that meets the needs of 70% of the world’s motorists. Strictly speaking, we think Nissan’s perspective has been based upon practicality (though important) more than the needs of motorists in terms of exterior design.

From Nissan’s point of view, Nissan says that fully 80% of US drivers travel less than 100km per day (62 miles), making the Leaf a solid fit for America’s motoring majority, even taking into account power-sapping external factors like hilly terrain, accessory draw, and extreme temperatures.

pc-pro-optical-discClaims have arised from a group of Australian scientists that they have come up with a way so that up to a whooping 10TB of data can be stored on a single disc. The team from Swinburne University of Technology, Australia, have successfully added “the dimensions of colour and light polarization” to our already existing technology in DVDs giving it massive boost to its maximum storage capacity.

These new discs will be capable of storing 10,000 times more data than our current DVDs, so far they have already been able to achieve 1.6TB discs and these could be on sale through Samsung within the next five years, as a deal has already been snatched. In addition to that, 10 TB will eventually be possible but we’ll need to look further ahead – next ten years.

GM and Segway have teamed up before the New York Auto Show on what they’re calling the PUMA project. The prototype vehicle was exclusively unveiled today on the Today Show in the States. Personal Urban Mobility and Accessibility is what I believe PUMA stands for. Outside of NBC’s Today Show this morning was a demonstration of the PUMA project developed by GM in partnership with Segway, knowing how popular the tv show is, not surprisingly lots of fans and viewers turned up to see the PUMA in action.

A genius team of researchers at MIT takes us one step closer to living in the world where Tom Cruise played in Minority Report and had computers equipped with technology even fancier than that of the Surface PC (not so fancy anymore I guess). Sixth sense! Is it possible? The video after the jump is not to be missed!
