CHECK OUT THIS SMART BIKE PEDAL

Normally we’d be telling you that this new gadget here is the only particular version of a particular product that you’ll ever need, because it’s the best one that has ever been made available. But when it comes to bike pedals, it’s kind of difficult to get terribly excited, since they’re just bike pedals.

However, the Connected Pedal will actually be the only bike pedal you’ll ever need, except for the normal one on the other side of your bike to make it, you know, go. Filled with GPS and GPRS equipment, which connects to the accompanying app, the pedal will keep track of your speed, incline, and all that other good stuff to decipher just how good a work-out you had on your latest bike ride.

On top of that, the pedal is charged from all the pedalling you’re doing, so there’s no need to charge it any other way. Plus all that GPS data means that should you bike get stolen, or forget where you’ve chained it up, you can track its location from your phone.

There’s no word on a price or release date just yet, but since it’s currently being shown off at the Las Vegas Consumer Electronics Show, we imagine it won’t be too much longer until you own the Best Bike Pedal Ever Made!

For a minute I allowed techno-romance to gnaw at me, but only for a minute. Tomorrow's open missal from Blackberry reminds me more of a fake letter that appeared in Chinese newspaper, The Southern Metropolis Daily a couple of months ago, and then found it's way around China via the micro-blogging Weibo.

NASA Game Changing 3D Printing success really matters

Last night I tweeted a link to the Press Release from NASA regarding their success with  testing a rocket engine injector made through additive manufacturing, or as we say these days,  3D printing. What surprised me was the reaction I got via re-Tweets, messages and people just saying 'wow!'. I think what caught people's attention was the potential highlighted by the success in NASA's test, the potential for manufacturing and for business.

Social Media: quality always tops quantity

In recent years I have had the privilege to speak at a number of different events on Social Media. Typically the area of greatest interest has always been Facebook. The same question always pops up during the Q&A part - “I don’t have a budget for Facebook, how do I get to 100,000 fans?” To be fair, there is not one answer to this question for every industry but I will try to give you an answer that should set you on the right path.
