Mike Tyson has a female equal

Mike Tyson

If you’re like me you are not liking boxing as a sport right now. Boxing is missing its pageantry, it’s celebrity, but most importantly the one punch knockout (not just any knockout punch, but one that when you see it, you’ll feel it. Watch this and after realize two things:

1.Boxing is not dead

2.When LL Cool J told us "Mamma said Knock You Out" BELIEVE IT

Enviro-friendly showerhead that kicks ass?

All us ninjas here at MNP place a high priority on being environmentally-friendly, and we love green tech, but sometimes, even we don’t want to be eco-friendly. Case in point - remember those low-flow toilets that would clog all the time? Or the restrictors in showerheads that make your shower nothing more than a trickle?

Well, some pretty cool folks over at Australia’s National Research Agency have designed a showerhead attachment that makes your shower use 30% less water, but still feels like you are under one of those earth-wrecking units. How? When the device is retrofitteed to fill the water droplets with a tiny bubble of air. The result is the shower feels just as wet and just as strong as before, but now uses much less water.

Check it out

Cool but scary tech of the day - the Bionic Hornet

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel is using nanotechnology to try to create a robot no bigger than a hornet that would be able to chase, photograph and kill its targets, an Israeli newspaper reported on Friday.

The flying robot, nicknamed the "bionic hornet", would be able to navigate its way down narrow alleyways to target otherwise unreachable enemies such as rocket launchers, the daily Yedioth Ahronoth said.

An E-Book with pages

turnover.jpg

The only thing the internet seems to be struggling to bring us for free is books. I can find movies, TV, music, comics, and so on, but e-books will still leave me wanting the real thing instead. But maybe not for long.This new take on the e-book, called ‘the Turnover’, will display text on what looks like a regular page, and when your done you turn to the second display.While you’re reading the second page, the first refreshes itself as the next page in the book, and so on and so forth. I couldn’t find any iller images than these, but the text looks great [if this is a working prototype, and not just printed on text…i dont really know for sure], and turning pages will really add that book effect.

Photo Backpack

This amazing new backpack lets you access the gear inside of the backpack without taking if off of your back. This allows you the comfort of a backpack with the convenience and accessibility of a beltpack.

The rotation 360 degrees exponentially increases your ability to access your gear as quickly as possible, with the least amount of effort to change lenses and access accessories. Then, just as easily, you can rotate the belt back back into the backpack and out of the way.
