Keypad Watch

“Just push any number 0 through 9 on the watch, and it’ll blink out the current time using small LEDs mounted into the face of each button. The display supports both 12- and 24-hour time modes. A press of the pound sign shows the date, using the same blinking LED method. The chunky buttons are supposed to be reminiscent of a computer keyboard, but to me they look more like an old pushbutton phone. Either way, it’s definitely a unique design, and I’m pretty sure the guy standing next to you won’t be wearing one.” w/ photos

Street Light Powered By Wind

So it’s extremely refreshing to see concept designs like the Tulipa, which is a wind powered street lamp that lights up the streets at night without need to be connected to the grid. It’s built with a wind turbine, transformer, and generator that takes wind energy and coverts it into electricity, which is then stored in the battery. The day-night sensor detects once the sun has set below the horizon, and the LED light then illuminates.” w/ photos

Why Young Couples Aren’t Getting Married

Young couples in the U.S. are holding back from taking the plunge and getting married because they are worried about suffering the strains of a divorce, research has shown. More than two-thirds of the cohabiting couples questioned admitted they were worried about the social, legal, emotional and economic consequences of marriage breakup. The findings back up those of another recent study which showed only half of American adults have tied the knot, with nearly half believing marriage was irrelevant to modern life. Last week, the Pew Research Centre revealed the ‘market share’ of marriage has fallen from 72 per cent in 1960 to 51 per cent today – with a staggering 5 per cent drop in the last year. With findings based on an analysis of U.S. Census data it predicted the share of American adults who are married will dip to below 50 per cent ‘within a few years.” w/ photos
