Kinect – Top Selling Tech Toy

Kinect – Top Selling Tech Toy, with an estimated 100,000 units per day being sold.

With Kinect for Xbox 360, a Microsoft product
You are the controller. No gadgets, no gizmos, just you!

Controller-free gaming means full body play. Kinect responds to how you move. So if you have to kick, then kick. If you have to jump, then jump. You already know how to play. All you have to do now is to get off the couch.

Sounds like a lot of fun!

Gasifying Biomass with Sunlight

Gasifying Biomass with Sunlight

A solar-driven process could yield far more fuel than conventional biomass production.

Sundrop Fuels, a startup based in Louisville, CO, says it has developed a cleaner and more efficient way to turn biomass into synthetic fuels by harnessing the intense heat of the sun to vaporize wood and crop waste. Its process can produce twice the amount of gasoline or diesel per ton of biomass compared to conventional biomass gasification systems, the company claims.

2 B in Action – The Plan

2 B or not 2 B (in Action) … that is the question!

Most of us have periods of inaction, often called procrastination, where our ideas, inventions, and innovation slow.

If we let “inActive” take charge of any area in our life, it typically ends up affecting all areas.

Whether it’s a Role you play or a Goal you have, you always need to “2 B in Action”. Resetting your Goal for each Role, whether it is in family, fitness, or one of your many business ideas/activities, motivation is key 2 B in Action.

2 B in Action – the Plan(TM)

I use “2 B in Action” as a driver … focus moves my actions forward. “2 B in Action – the Plan(TM)” is the key to Success in all areas of your life. It is as simple taking action right now, order your Plan. and make your dreams come true.

2 B in Action – the Plan(TM) focuses on developing a quick action plan, achievable, doable and launches you on the track to Success.

For example, everyone wants to be fit. “2 B in Action – the Plan(TM)”, would list the next 2 actions to focus on to drive you to fitness, ie take your dog(s) for a walk, do 10 push ups today!

I know, everybody tells you to make you “To Do” lists. I have them, but I find I need to link each “To Do” with an activity to be successful.

That is why I created “2 B in Action – The Plan(TM)”. That is why I believe that selecting and focusing on the next 2 actions is a much more useful tool. 2 B in Action – the Plan(TM) with a workbook to drive your ideas, will be formally roled out shortly.

I want to hear from you, let me know how it works for you.

China's High-Speed-Rail Revolution

This is cool. We need some of this in Canada. China has begun operating the world’s fastest dedicted rail line: a 968-kilometer line linking Wuhan, in the heart of central China, to Guangzhou, on the southeastern coast. The “WuGuang” line trains (locally built variants of Japan’s Shinkansen and Germany’s InterCity Express high-speed trains) raced along at up to 394 kilometers per hour (or 245 miles per hour). They have also recorded an average speed of 312 kph in nonstop runs four times daily since the WuGuang’s December 26 launch, slashing travel time from Wuhan to Guangzhou from 10.5 hours to less than three.

3D TV

3D TV is being billed as a possible saviour for recession hit manufacturers looking to boost sales.

On the opening day of the Consumer Electronics Show, CES, in Las Vegas, all the big names unveiled 3D TV’s.

Industry experts said the picture looks promising with a survey showing around 3.4m 3D TV sets will be sold in the US this year.

“It’s a challenging market. We need something to kick us out of this,” said Panasonic’s Elsuke Tsuyuzaki.

“To me, the thing that’s going to get us there is 3D,” added the firm’s chief technology officer.

“2009 is a year none of us want to repeat,” said Gary Shapiro the president of the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) which hosts the annual tech gathering.
