Laptop Ninja
A blog FOR Laptop Ninjas, not about them. A Laptop Ninja is a cousin of the more common Web Ronin. As a solitary figure who's skills with computer technology and design, the Laptop Ninja survives by performing contract work from cafes, public parks, and sometimes rooftops. The Laptop Ninja's sword is his 802.11 connection, his iPod his throwing stars, and his Bluetooth cellphone his Nunchucks. All of which are usually carried in a discreet messenger bag.

Today lap counting, tomorrow underwater PSP!!
Swimming bores the crap out of me, though for some reason I do it. So anything that makes the endless laps somewhat less catotonic sounds great to me! A student in Scotland designed these goggles that give a head's up display of the number of laps (and, judging by the pic, the time of day or lap time). They count the laps by detecting a change in the direction of an internatl compass.

If you can't grow gills, wear them!!!
An Isreali inventor has submitted patent applications for a breathing apparatus that works without oxygen tanks. I don't presume to know much about chemistry, marine biology, physics, or any other science, but I know my way around breating, and it seems this thing works the same way that fish gills do. Could this be a temporary fix to human over-population?
