DumpsterMap

Grassroots crowdsourced tech service lets users mark dumpsters with smartphone app and GPS to locate finds. Video embedded below shows the app in action:

An online resource for freegans and dumpster divers to locate other divers and post dumpster locations for others to find.

The app was very much designed for the Reddit DumpsterDiving community.

For those spontaneous meals that involve browsing a new recipe from the internet, the task of balancing your tablet can become cumbersome—especially when your focus needs to be on that sizzling frying pan or boiling pot of stock. Nils Wessell of Brooklyn Butcher Blocks used his woodworking skills to come up with a simple yet shrewd solution that also saves space: adding a slot for a tablet to his high-quality, handmade, wooden cutting boards. The chopping block is also reversible, which can save a wash or two during the cooking process.

In an effort to prepare for a world after peak oil, design student Mark Colliass has invented a bike accessory that can only be described as Peak Hipster. His clever contraption transforms a fixie into a rolling factory capable of cranking out arty, limited-edition lampshades that would make killer Etsy listings.
The project makes manufacturing as easy as, well, riding a bike. A bespoke rotational casting machine attaches to a bicycle’s handlebars. A small shot of liquid resin is poured into a rubber mold and it is inserted into the rig. As the rider pedals, the front wheel rotates the mold, sloshing the plastic around the cavity. A chemical transformation begins, and 40 minutes later the rider can remove a fully formed lampshade.

Placemeter | Making your city better

Imagine never having to guess how busy your favorite restaurant is or waiting in line at the grocery store. Placemeter is making it possible, one sensor at a time. Be smarter about your time—and help your neighbors do the same—by becoming a Meter.

Startup wants to use your old phone taped to your window to track how busy locations are.
Previously posted, without knowing the source of the imagery: video of Placemeter’s algorithmic output.
Video of Placemeter’s pitch at Websummit: “Many of you look at this video and see Times Square. But I have 20 years of computer vision experience, and I see a data mine here.”

This sounds like a joke, so I assume it’s serious.

In the 1960s, GE engineers developed the Cybernetic Anthropmorophous Machine, or Walking Truck. In 1966, the US Army awarded GE a contract for building the experimental vehicle. However, its hand and foot controls not only fatigued operators, but were impractical for prolonged use on the battlefield, so the project was discontinued. Kevin Weir at flux machine recently reanimated the Walking Truck so the mechanical beast could gallop once more. 

Here’s another thing I made for GE!Imagine this fearsome beast ambling after you on the battlefield.And then tripping over a pine cone and exploding everywhere.Also imagine a walking truck ice cream truck.
