Perhaps it’s a good idea to have a PC case that also works as a mini cooker, so you can simply cook your lunch right on top of it. Here comes the PC case mod that is made to look like a mini cooker, and it even comes complete with a full-size cooktop and blue LED “gas burner”, making it to look so much like the real deal.
The entire system was built by hand, work involved welding together metal chassis, and creating custom plastic knobs and the faked burners out of acrylic.
We need to be exposed to certain amount of lights a day in order to stay healthy and in good mood. For those who always keep themselves in darkness, having very low exposure to lights will lead to develop depressions like winter blues and cabin fever.
Exposure to lights here doesn’t mean you need to be exposed to sunlights directly. You can simply point a lamp at your face, that will give you certain amount of lights. But, it’s definitely not a pleasant feeling for having to point a lamp on your own face as it simply blinds you from seeing other things for a moment.
Now, thanks to Philips, which they’ve just released a handy gadget, called the goLITE, which emits soft and pleasant blue lights that our body needs. Our body responds best to certain wavelengths of light. The goLITE simply emits the suitable wavelengths that our body needs. It uses optimal frequency blue LEDs to deliver the most positive effect on the body.
The light from the goLITE is actually not weak, but it is okay to human eyes, which gives little bit of visual imprint when you glance away from it. It’s certainly much better than having a lamp shining on your face that most likely blinds you for a short while. The light emitted by goLITE will give you the feeling like sunshine in winter.
The device is also equipped with a back lit touchscreen which can be used to adjust the light intensity, set timer or alarm clock, and it can be used as a desktop clock when it’s not used to shine the blue light. There is also a magnetic stand on the back that keeps this unit up on your desk.

A little chip has been invented which is used for testing blood and it takes only 10 minutes and needs only a single blood drop to carry out the most precise test.
The conventional blood test carried out in the hospital or clinic will normally involve doctors or nurses to 10 to 15 mililiters of blood into several vials. It will then involve multiple technicians to carry out the analysis, which may sum up a total cost of $500.
The new micro chip is claimed to be able to do the same, and it needs only one drop of blood. And it’s able to produce the test result showing you with full information about your healthiness in only 10 minutes. In another words, you’ll know within 10 minutes whether you’ve got cancer, HIV etc.
This microfluidic chip is being developed by James Heath, a chemistry professor at Caltech, and Institute for Systems Biology founder Leroy Hood. The chip is able to segregate cells and proteins in the blood drop, and tag those proteins so they will light up under a microscope if anything is found.
