Many people are drinking bottled water nowadays because they are suspicious of ingredients that might be hidden in regular tap water. Only downside of bottled water is that there are too many plastic bottles being used every day, but there are also all sorts of reusable bottles that have built in filters – its just that they never get noticed. Even if these bottles have existed for some time, none of them have had a design like this one.

The new ioSafe Solo external hard drives are not only just waterproof (something that many external HDDs are now claiming to be able to do) but also fire proof! If you’ve ever lost photos or videos from a defective memory card, you will know what that aching feeling is like.

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!
