Veloboo Gold is a limited edition bicycle draped in gold from side to side and made from frame of bamboo which is a totally insane combination. The gold-plated bicycle carries a hefty price tag of 27 grands and is most definitely not for the ordinary. Frame of the bicycle is made surprisingly from bamboo colored in matte surface which has vibration soaking properties, as well as internal strength just like aluminum. Veloboo is only going to produce 30 of these...

Foldable drone transforms into next gen UAV in the blink of an eyehttp://www.damngeeky.com/2015/05/21/31539/foldable-drone-transforms-into-next-gen-uav-in-the-blink-of-an-eye.html http://www.damngeeky.com/2015/05/21/31539/foldable-drone-transforms-into-next-gen-uav-in-the-blink-of-an-eye.html#comments Thu, 21 May 2015 08:24:53 +0000 http://www.damngeeky.com/?p=31539 UAV’s have come a long since their early development, and in the next phase of evolution, UAV’s are going to get a miniature form-factor which is apparent from some of the drones that we have seen in the last year or so. Going by the same theme is this foldable drone that deploys in the blink of an eye within 0.5 seconds to take flight on mission unknown. The inspiration for developing this folding drone came from origami art, according to the makers Laboratory of Intelligent Systems (LIS) at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and NCCR Robotics. This...

But L’Oreal believes it still has a long way to go considering skincare, so it has teamed up with bioprinting experts Organovo to make human skin using 3D printing technology. Apparently, Organovo has already made in-roads in medical science by 3D printing a human liver tissues, and this new venture will also test their prowess to the limit. L’Oreal already cultivates 100,000, 0.5 sq cm skin samples donated by plastic...

Now, they have taken this technology further ahead with an unbelievably thin 55-inch wallpaper OLED display which was revealed at a company event in Seoul yesterday. LG Display revealed this 0.97 mm thick OLED panel weighing just 1.9 kg, making it a huge leap in OLED technology thus far.

I’m sure you’ll safely say a “No” to that, but medical science and technological innovation is about to prove you wrong. Being able to see three times better than 20/20 vision criteria is what Dr. Garth Webb, a British optometrist has developed in his research facility, literally perfecting your vision at the age of 100 with a technologically advanced bionic lens. Far ahead of the contact lenses, this bionic lens will give the users super-human like vision. The Ocumetics Bionic Lenses can be installed surgically inside the eye within just 8...
