Aura tree ornaments for those dreaming of a wireless Christmas

The Aura Christmas lights are powered and controlled wirelessly

Raise shields: Protective invisible barrier found surrounding Earth

A natural shield has been found to protect the Earth from 'killer electrons'

The idea of putting a Star Trek-like force field around the entire Earth seems like the fodder for a fairly silly science fiction epic out of the 1930s, but according to space scientists, such a barrier already exists. Discovered by a pair of NASA space probes, the natural shield protects the Earth and near-Earth satellites from so-called “killer electrons” with a precision that cuts it off like a wall of glass…

Line 6 starts home invasion with the AMPLIFi TT

The Line 6 AMPLIFi TT guitar tone processor and Bluetooth audio streamer

I only have three now but it is not hard to find some out there for $5-10. I had liked the one on the left at first (a Continental) because it had that classic pebble look, but the edges that open aren’t treated in any way, so you can feel the burr when it’s closed. The ones on the right (Ronson Whirlwinds of different models) both do a better job of hiding that they are made from sheet metal, like that rolling chamfer in the front. Not a bad thing to learn from …
