Coda’s all-electric sedan goes on sale in California, hopes to entice buyers with fancy keychains

Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

It took a couple of kicks to the sticker price and a range-slashing redesign, but Coda’s all-electric sedan is finally ready to take you a stone’s throw away from your nearest EV charger. Haggling starts at $37,250 at select dealers in California, although exploiting the right tax credits could knock as much as 10k off the MSRP. The 31kWH 125 mile range sedans are mostly rolling out dealerships around Los Angeles, though the car can be found in Silicon Valley and the Century City Westfield Mall as well. The first 500 electric motorists to bite will be awarded with a commemorative keychain, a numbered plaque for their vehicle’s center console and other “limited edition features” for adopting early. Read on for Coda’s official press release.

‘The Collective’ steampunk USB drive is the stocking stuffer Jules Verne always wanted

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

Miffed you didn’t buy that $300 8GB steampunk USB drive we shared over the summer? Well, the good news is if you’ve got $395 worth of shillings lying around, Will Rockwell’s 16GB steampunk USB drive christened “The Collective” is yours for the taking. Besides its J.J. Abrams-like name, particularly cool details to highlight include a brass manifold featuring four coolant pipes, a large framed cabochon which acts as a service light, and a faux-gauge made from a domed cover and watch hand. A storage tank serves as a cap for the drive and there’s even a tiny plaque bearing Mr. Rockwell’s engraved John Hancock placed smack dab in the middle. Last but certainly not least, the elaborate thumbdrive ships with a velvet platform and a glass museum case, so that all who visit may bask in its craftsmanship and finally see the rusted version owned by that Victorian-poser down the block as the tetanus carrier it really is.

This Is Where the Web Was Born [Internet]

Tim Berners-Lee cites this spot (specifically that plaque on the wall!) at CERN to be the birthplace of the world wide web. Note the series of tubes on the ceiling. Those played a critical role, I understand. [davidgalbraith] More »

Arterial tandem: coronary drill gets cleared for use, MEMS sensor distinguishes between kinds of plaque

Saturday, December 26th, 2009

We know discussing things involving “arteries” and “coronary plaque” generally don’t do much for one’s appetite, but being the holidays and all, we honestly can’t think of a more fitting way to remind you not to pig out this evening. Up first is a MEMS-based sensor designed by downright enlightened researchers at the University of Southern California, which is used to “distinguish between stable and unstable atherosclerotic plaques in coronary arteries.” The idea here is to more easily determine whether a patient needs immediate surgery or simple lifestyle changes in order to remedy artery issues, though the process is still awaiting clinical approval before it can be used en masse. In related news, Pathway Medical has just received European clearance to sell its Jetstream G2 NXT coronary drill overseas (or “peripheral atherectomy catheter,” as it were), which does exactly what you’d expect it to: clear clogged blood vessels in the treatment of PAD. If you’re not already grossed out, feel free to tap the links below for more information on head past the break for a couple of video demonstrations. Mmm, honey ham!
