Elizabeth, I like the the same two you do...and the smoker is also cool. We have cat and raccoons that get in the trash all the time. That zapper might just do the trick!

As someone who has used, and watched my kids use, pitching machines, I like the idea of the pitch alert systems. Part of hitting is timing the pitcher's windup (or stretch) to get ready for the arrival of the ball.

I like the pest zapper, too, as long as it doesn't hurt the animals! I guess you don't actually have to aim directly at them! There are a few neighborhood cats in my area I'd like to deter from eating the food put out for my cats. I also think the interactive beer pong table is pretty funny. It would have been quite dangerous to have when I was in college!

The variable golf green

The variable golf course is quite an interesting system indeed. I can see that some other versions using that same machanism could be the basis for a product that might sell well at some upscale golf courses and country clubs. It could duplicate some of the tougher holes from around the world. There is a whole lot of potential in the concept. And that mechanism is a great idea, good use of fairly standard materials and technology.

Love the foam machine gun pest zapper.  (Does it work on salesmen too?)

The first photos made with a 3D-printed telescope are here and they're not as fuzzy as you might expect. A team from the University of Sheffield beat NASA to the goal. The photos of the Moon were made with a reflecting telescope that cost the research team 100 to make (about $161 US).
At Medical Design & Manufacturing Midwest, Joe Wascow told Design News how Optimal Design prototyped a machine that captures the wing-beat of a duck.
The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment.

Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
