Seventeen-year-old Kai Kloepfer’s idea for a finger-print sensitive smart gun came to him in a dream. This week, the Colorado teen won a $50,000 grant from the Smart Tech Challenges Foundation with the hopes of bringing that vision to life.
In an interview with FOX’s Denver news channel KDVR, Kloepfer said that he believes his invention could improve America’s gun safety and reduce accidental gun deaths. He describes a design that is simple and user-friendly.
“All you have to do is pick the firearm up and the way you naturally rest your hand on the firearm unlocks it,” he says. “So you don’t have to swipe or anything like that.”

There isn’t much one can do with the classic bike’s design, right? Wrong! Japan, has yet again surprised us all with this new design of the classic bike that will allow you to walk while you conveniently commute. The stepping bikes or officially known as the Walking Bicycle Club (WBC) relies on the up and down movement of the legs instead of the rotational movement to ride the bike.
WBC comes with three wheels and is also equipped with an electric motor that is responsible for helping the cyclist while going up a hill. The bike weighs about 36 pounds and is about 3.3 feet in length. The group that came up with the design is known as Katayama Kogyo says it wanted to create a new experience that would be the combination of walking at the speed of cycling.

At the resplendent China World Hotel in Beijing, scores of cameras snapped as colorful confetti floated down from the ceiling. It was Aug. 11, 2005, and this was the global coming-out party for Alibaba, the Chinese e-commerce upstart. After months of frantic negotiations, the American Internet giant Yahoo had agreed to invest $1 billion in cash and create deeper business ties, in exchange for a 40 percent stake in Alibaba.
Alibaba’s founder, Jack Ma, thin, energetic and standing just over five feet tall, was beaming. He gushed that it was China’s Valentine’s Day and this was a beautiful match: “You’d be foolish if you said no.” It was his coming-out party too; the partnership would pave the way for Alibaba to become an international juggernaut.

In the space between somewhat practical vehicles like the Segway and completely fad-driven curios like the Tamagotchi, there exists a middle ground of outlandish gadget that almost seems to make sense, but is weird enough that you might be too embarrassed to use it in public.
It’s still early days, but that appears to be the case with Acton’s RocketSkates, which look like a joint creation by the art departments of Judge Dredd and Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. Offering to motorize your feet, they are a recent Kickstarter success story. And depending on your temperament, the RocketSkates either look like a glimpse at the future, or an expensive prank.
Do they work as described? A demonstration video indicates that, yes, you can use the RocketSkates to traverse the city at fairly rapid speeds. But there are limitations.
