1. Energy Efficient Heating

    Some Canadiens have developed a nifty device that basically just uses a fan to move air and a panel to build up heat. The panel apparently consists of soda cans painted black. It's a little more complicated than that as the unit is outfitted to turn on and off automatically, etc. But it's definitely something innovative and simple, and doesn't take a lot of sunlight to heat a good 1,400 square feet. Too bad I can't stick one of these on the outside of my apartment, it'd save some money in the winter.

    Frame from EruptionThis is amazing! It is from an experiment where they demonstrate how sand can look like a liquid. There is a video to watch that isn't all that exciting if you don't know it's sand. Pretty nifty.

    From MacMinute

    The iTunes Music Store (iTMS) is now offering free audio downloads of the 9-11 Commission hearings. The 9-11 Commission is an independent, bipartisan commission investigating the circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001 tragedy in New York.

    Hmm. It will be interesting to see if this becomes that happens with more regularity, or if it's a one time thing.
