DuPont To Embed Wireless Charging In Corian Countertops

DuPont Building Innovations has joined the Power Matters Alliance (PMA) to develop embedded wireless charging technology into its popular Corian countertops.

PMA’s efforts have brought embedded wireless charging into public and commercial spaces around the New York City area such as in Starbucks stores, Regis Hair Salons, Delta Airlines terminals, Madison Square Garden and the Barclays Center in Brooklyn under the banner of its Power 2.0 initiative, but the embeds are essentially Duracell Powermat charging pads countersunk into tabletops.

DuPont’s entry in the category may open the door for other furniture and design materials manufacturers to consider including wireless charging in household and commercial construction and installations.

YO! Sushi Launches Their New Burger On A Flying Tray

2,w=650,c=0.bild

Famed for being the first Sushi chain in the UK to deliver food to customers on a conveyor belt, YO! Sushi has gone one-step further with the introduction of the world’s first flying tray to deliver the YO! Burger to YO! Sushi lovers.

The ‘iTray’ air delivery system is a clever marketing ploy to showcase the low caloric count of the new burger (maximum of 423 calories). So light it can float on air…

The high-tech flying platter is custom built using the most advanced RC Drone quadicopter technology and is remote controlled through an on-board Wi-Fi system and iPad software. The gadget is made from a carbon fiber frame and consists of four propellers making it incredibly light and maneuverable. Two built-in HD cameras allow YO! Sushi kitchen staff to check that the new burger range is delivered through a real time video broadcast viewable on an iPad screen.

The tray-copter is now being trialled at YO! Sushi Soho with plans to roll it out across the UK next year.

Developed by YO! Sushi’s Executive Chef, Mike Lewis, after spending a considerable amount of time researching different regional foods in Japan, the YO! Burger removes the traditional bun and greasy beef patty and replaces it with innovative buns made from the highest quality Japanese toasted rice and a range of five fillings – teriyaki chicken, kimchi salmon, prawn katsu, tilapia katsu fish and tofu katsu.

Each YO! Burger is served on a Japanese bento tray and is accompanied by pickled daikon slaw, nori crackers in place of fries and instead of ketchup, misochup.

Gibson Min-ETune

Gallery_CPU_1

Min-ETune is a compact, battery-powered robot tuner that tunes your Gibson guitar in seconds—and delivers 80-100 tunings on one charge. Adjust the tuning pegs manually, turn on the Min-ETuneTM to tune all six strings to perfect pitch automatically, or select any of 12 popular alternate tunings (including six you can program yourself). You can even adjust your guitar’s tunings to match other instruments.

Gallery_Headstock

Available on a wide range of Gibson guitars so you can find one that is just right for you. A guitar with Min-ETune feels the same, looks the same (the unit mounts onto the back of your guitar’s headstock), and plays the same. But most importantly, it sounds the same—Min-ETuneTM works by tuning the physical strings, not by digital trickery that degrades your tone.

Save time and money in the studio, keep the flow going onstage, enhance your creativity with new tunings, and more. You take care of the playing—we’ll handle the tuning.

Marvel’s Announces Project Gamma At 2013

ProjectGammaR

Marvel’s Project Gamma is a unique immersive experience that brings fully adaptive music and sound together with digital comics to create an entirely new audio-visual event.

Project Gamma represents a landmark partnership between Marvel Entertainment, Momentum Worldwide and CORD (A Cutting Edge Company), the composers and producers of such award-winning films as the Harry Potter series, “Looper,” “Drive” and “The King’s Speech.”

An adaptive audio experience, Project Gamma dynamically tailors itself to both the events in the comic and the individual reader’s behavior, no matter the time invested in each page and to each issue. In short, with this new technology each reading experience becomes unique to itself.

Launching later this year with a Marvel event that will be announced soon, Project Gamma will be partnered with Marvel stories that truly compliment what it offers in expanding the reader experience.
