Electric Avenue: this road wirelessly charges moving cars

Recharge while driving? As part of an initial test, Tel Aviv is preparing to wirelessly power its public buses. A receiver under the carriage will collect energy from wire coils placed under the street. This first phase covers a third of mile. Later, ElectReon, the brainpower behind this, plans to expand to routes across the city and extend the technology to personal vehicles.

Affordable Bluetooth ‘Tile’ finds your stuff

I like this! It combines consumerism with investing (and, might help me find my misplaced keys).

Tile(TM) is a Bluetooth tracking device that enables you to track your lost items. What’s more, you can share the tracking data across multiple Bluetooth devices so you and your significant others can form a ‘search party.’ PLUS you can leverage the network of Tile users and devices to create a swarm of search agents (sounds cool and freaky, huh?)

You can pre-order on the vendor’s website. Units are expected to ship in Winter 2013.

Or watch the vendor plea / pitch, below.

Cheers!
