Colin hacks : macro lens and a light for the iPhone

Making a macro lens and a light for the iPhone | Hi, I’m Colin Devroe.

So this is one of the most analog hacks I’ve seen in a while. Sorta looks like a pirate or a borg. Colin must have been really bored. Or maybe creativity just over took him and this is what happened. Either way I’m digging it.

You can also take a look at some of his iphone photos at flickr. This link will take you to a macro shot of an m&m you’ll like it.

SEPTA Go Green

oh no

“One SEPTA rider consumes about half the amount of oil than that of a private commuter. Imagine what a busload can do.”SEPTA also has been working to minimize the environmental impact of its fleet.

It operates 32 diesel-electric hybrid buses and plans to add 400 more by 2011. These are 30 percent more fuel efficient and emit significantly less carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide, according to SEPTA. Other buses have been retrofitted so they can use cleaner, ultra low-sulphur diesel fuel.

Ok so who knew?

I hate buses, I love trollies. I want more trollies. I hate the noise that buses make and the smell when the engine isn’t running clean… the heat from the engines. I hate buses.

But, at least something progressive is happening. And if riders are up maybe we can get something better than a bus — like a trolly.

So, when do we make the taxis hybrid?
