Techknow Thursday!

Alright, I have a couple of techknow gems for you all today as I am constantly trying to find the best there is or if not the best, the strangest. This first one is just a bit of novelty and a video which produces the question, how or why does that happen? The answer is still elusive as of right now, but should I find out, then of course, I will share with the class. It's simple. A guy places a piece of scotch tape on frosted glass which consequently allows him to see through the glass. Weird, but why does it work? The world may never know, but here's the video.

The other techknow beauty is this guy's invention. Apparently he's built an automatic safecracker (to open his own safe, of course). It's not much to look at for now, but I can see him selling this to whichever company sees it as the biggest liability -- or biggest asset. Not really, because it would take a while to get any safe open as the "box" basically runs through every possible combination to crack the safe, so it'll be there for quite some time. Personally, the best thing about the safecracker is its appeal with those two ominous eyes staring at you. That's just speaks advanced tech! Awesome indeed.
