All of us want to impress a date by cooking a edible meal for them. While we can’t do anything about the potential food poisoning you may cause, at least we can the cooking process much easier. With The Steam Roaster, you have a mixing bowl for all your preparations, which magically turns into your steam roasting or baking pan, and finally after a quick rinse, it is now your serving dish. The silicone material that makes up The Steam Roaster allows this bowl to take almost any shape you need. Cook and eat an entire meal and only have one dish left on the counter that you will never clean, instead of the normal infinite stacks. So get yourself a date, The Steam Roaster, a basic knowledge of food preparation, and the number for poison control because you sir, are living the dream!
By now, you’ve heard about the Chilean miners who were trapped underground for months and survived with the help of many others. Well, one of TechVert’s sponsors, Zephyr Technology was able to help the Chilean miners by monitoring their vital signs with their product and sending it wirelessly to a base above ground where doctors could manage the miners’ health. Pretty cool if you’re trapped in a mine for months.
So, how did doctors keep them healthy, oxygenated, and monitored?

Paranoid about getting your car stolen or just generally hate using keys? Well now, you can get this biometric vehicle starter that will start your car after reading your fingerprint. Maybe it’s overkill, but come on, if you can’t get girls with a biometric car starter then you’ve got bigger problems.
When your fingerprint is identified by the system it then looks for pulse, blood pressure, and body temperature. Finally it scans the capillary patterns under the skin. The entire process only takes milliseconds to complete, and the system has verified the input was made by an actual living person. Advanced features of the Fingerprint Starter include Access Control, Ignition Interrupt, Computer Override, and Fuel Pump Cut-Off. Only those drivers with enrolled fingerprints can start the engine or enable/disable system features.

Possibly one of the greatest additions to the viewer experience of football games has been the addition of the digital first down marker, or, the yellow line. Being able to know where on the field a runner needs to cross in order to get a first down has put an end to many an argument and enhanced the information a viewer can take in while watching the game.
But how does it work? Well, it’s complicated, but this video from NBC does a good job of explaining how they get that yellow line onto the field and not only that, but how they get the yellow line to appear as if it is really on the field, underneath the players.
Besides being the weirdest bike you’ll see all day, Michael Killian’s SidewaysBike is either a revolutionary way to get from place to place or a quirky apparatus to work on your balance.
Introducing a new bicycle invention by myself, Michael Killian. This bicycle is ridden forward and is balanced by using human Left to Right balance. This bicycle uses independant (non linked) Front and Rear steering. The ride is very wavy sort of like skiing with a capacity to drift to the right or left. The front and rear steering makes the bike much more maneuverable than a single steer bike. Your hands are by your side and you don’t exert a lot of pull on the steering. Its sort of like riding a horse where you cannot lean on the reins but all body movements come out of your seat and saddle. The saddle is nessicarily a unicycle saddle (You would slip forward off a regular bike saddle). I would predict that the audience for this bike would be teenagers to young adults.
Microsoft Corp is hoping to reverse the recent slump in video games and kickstart the holiday shopping season as it launches the latest version of its blockbuster Halo video game early on Tuesday.
Halo: Reach, the fourth in the popular series that pits the player against murderous aliens in a variety of settings, will be available from midnight in stores across the United States.
The game has sold more than 34 million copies in the nine years of its life — boosting the popularity of Microsoft’s Xbox console — helping the world’s largest software company grab a slice of the $20 billion U.S. video game business.
The new Halo: Reach, technically a prequel to the main Halo narrative, has better graphics, more complex fighting scenarios and new ways of playing with others online, which analysts say could bring some excitement back to the slack video game business.
