Flashbag: The inflating USB flash drive


This product is only at the concept stage, so you can't buy it. But, it's a standard USB drive that has a tiny pump in it that inflates when you load it with data.  So if your drive is full of stuff, it blows up like a balloon, but if it's empty it remains flat and rectangular.

Sounds like some concept allright. But, we can't think of anyone who would want something like this. Would you carry a full size mango in your pocket? No, then why would you carry this, aye? > Read more

This is one hell of a Super Computer: 24000 processors and 400 Terabytes of memory

Baker is what they call this big-daddy super computer from Cray, which has approximately 24,000  2.6 GHz quad-core AMD Opteron processors and  is to be comissioned in the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Though the system is still in early stages of development, it's expected to have either 187 or 400 TB of memory and one to 11 Petabytes of storage and have a speed of more 1 Petaflops, which is equivalent to quadrillion floating-point operations a second.

That's some heavy numbers, ain't it? We wonder how much it's going to cost... maybe we should pick one too, after we sell our oil-wells i.e. ;)

Apple Mouse projects a real mouse picture


Heh, this has to be one of the best discoveries out there. It turns out that if you have a Apple Mighty optical mouse, it can project a real mouse hologram on the desk. Try it. Update: We found it does the same on a Apple Wireless mouse as well, though this one looks like a "Mickey Mouse" from some angles.

PS: It seems the  Microsoft optical mouse projects a picture of a devil <just kidding> :)
