50% Funding for jaja

After a big boost yesterday we’re heading more swiftly to our goal!

20120114-140258.jpg

We’ve hit 50% funding and still have 24 days to go – looks like we might get there, but still need your help, visit Kickstarter now and get a jaja for close to 1/2 retail price.

The worlds first and only pressure sensitive stylus you can use on an airplane – Bluetooth and wifi can’t be used in airplane mode – high frequency sound can, and due to our noise canceling algorithms and sequences the jaja can be used anywhere.

Self Manufacturing

I totally agree with this venturebeat article, and home based manufacturing is going to contribute to this movement.

3D printing is where printers were in the 80’s with dot matrix! Moores law will apply, and I’d expect home manufacturing (or at least very local) for many products to be available in the next 10-15 years. I’m buying one of these Replicators to get our family started! :-)

Nice Quote

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

different ways in one watch; digitally and with lines.


The wrist band is made of a thin sheet of stainless steel that wraps around your wrist like a bracelet, the e-paper is positioned beneath this band to form the time and information display.


The watch vibrates to give message, mail and call notifications from your cell phone and these will appear on the screen via Bluetooth wireless technology. With this design, the buttons are positioned at the top of the band.

Value of Olympic Medals!

The world champion athletes at the Winter Olympics receive gold, silver, and bronze medals that contain roughly the same amounts of metal as the last Summer Olympics.

A gold medal contains 550 grams of silver and is layered with just 6 grams of gold.
A silver medal has 509 grams of silver and about 41 grams of copper.
The bronze medals likely contain about 450 grams of copper and 50 grams of mostly tin and zinc.

At current market prices, a gold medal is exchangeable for about $494, a silver for about $260, and a bronze for just $3. If the gold medal was solid gold with the same mass, it would be exchangeable for almost $20,000.
