They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. As it turns out, it’s also in their DNA.
Thanks to some truly innovative thinking, now your DNA (or that of a loved one if you can get it) can be turned into beautiful works of art. The company that can help you with this nifty little trick is DNA11. read more »
A brief item crossed news wires Tuesday announcing a Japanese company’s invention of water-powered batteries. The company, Total System Conductors (TSC), says the batteries are as powerful as everyday batteries currently in use and will offer a cheaper alternative to what’s on the market. Plus, they have an unlimited shelf life, unlike common batteries which lose up to 25 percent of their charge per year when stored unused. You could stow a battery in an emergency kit today and use it 50 years from now without consequence.
But are water-powered batteries really new? read more »
France is known for its artists, Germany for its conductors, Italy for its opera singers, England for its thespians, and Ireland for its literary giants. Names like James Joyce, Seamus Heaney, Maeve Binchy, and William Butler Yeats roll off the tongue when we discuss that brilliantly contemplative, Guinness-drenched country.
However, Ireland may soon take its place on the world stage as the next scientific wonderland. In the 1990s, it made a name for itself as the technology capital of Western Europe; and now, budding from kernels planted in the era of the Celtic Tiger, is a new discovery that could potentially overhaul everything we think we know about science. Free energy: free energy that breaks the first law of thermodynamics and will turn the world on its head if the rumors are true. read more »
With Halloween behind us, it's nigh time we take a good long look at ourselves and separate the hype from the actual very serious science of hunting vaporous spirits and capturing evidence of them on tape so we can prove once and for all that there is life after death, or at the very least, Photoshop. read more »Ghost hunting is a fairly new field that's only existed for a few decades in its modern form. Before digital cameras and EMF detectors, ghost hunters were forced to hunt ghosts with Davy Crocket muskets and a large flour sack . The flour sack could be used to toss onto the ghost, and, if captured, their trusty mule would then haul to the beet patch until such time as your resident Leprechauns would have a chance to scourge all the evil out of him. Ghosts had it pretty rough back then.

Our guest blogger, Emily Swan, graduated with highest honors from Butler University in Indianapolis. After school, she worked in public relations for Borders Group Inc, the book, music, and movie retailer. She's since jumped the PR fence and now works as a freelance writer. An avid science junkie, we hope you'll enjoy her quirky (and sometimes philosophical) takes on modern gadgets. Emily gives us a glimpse of what our future can be like while we're watching TV at home.
Here's Emily's article for AmericanInventorSpot.com:
At the beginning of the twentieth century, French writer, Marcel Proust, explored a theory that human senses are intricately entwined with memory.

NatureMill's ComposterDo you know of any self-contradictory or "oxymoronic" inventions? You know ... inventions that defeat its own purpose?
Our guest blogger, Phil Jones aka "bottleslingguy", is the inventor of his own brand of nursing bottle slings (you can check them out at http://www.bottleslingguy.com/ ). Phil is an avid fan of AmericanInventorSpot.com (he's been with us since the beginning), he loves to pick on Doug Hall and plans on changing the way people bottlefeed their children. Auditioning right after Robert Amore and Francisco Patino of ABC's American Inventor, his two minutes of fame never made it past the cutting room floor. Now he likes to hang around here and remind people to check out his invention and let us know about an invention that seems just doesn't seem right.
Here's his article:
