Bluetooth speaker powered by candlelight

Pelty is kind of amazing, and is most definitely going on my Zombie Apocalypse Survival List. Pelty is a Bluetooth speaker powered by fire.

How it works: Thermodynamics and a little thing called the Peltier effect. The Peltier effect basically means that electric current is created when electrons move from one material to the other with the help of temperature differentials. So basically, science.

This will go great with my handcrank phone charger.

And in making my life a lot easier news, there's a little thing called A Better Queue.

A Better Queue "lets you filter Netflix's instantly streaming movies by Rotten Tomatoes' Tomatometer, number of reviews, years, and genres. It also lets you add movies straight to your queue."

I think it's time for a staycation.


Mapping movements with Human

Human is an app that tracks your walks, runs, rides and more. All it wants you to do is move for 30 minutes a day. That in itself is pretty great.

But then the folks over at decided to map their users movements in various geographic locations. The result is a beautiful visualization of humanity in motion.

SmartyPins is a game that utilizes Google Maps and trivia. How it works: Choose a category, and read the question, and drop the pin on the correct geographic location. The closer you are the better, because you will be deducted for every “mile” off. Run out of miles and it’s game over. But don’t worry, you can always try again. And again and again.

Categories include Arts & Culture, Science & Geography, Sports & Games, Entertainment and History & Current Events. Bonus: When you get answers correct, the game includes cute messages of encouragement and funny GIFs like the Google Streetview guy dancing in a banana suit.
