Earphone Cord Static Retention
Headphone wearerers have all experienced a loose cord tugging free from reaching or catching. The market offers cord retention clips which restrict movement, tear away and/or crimp clothing. Obviously it's our turn.

A fibrous slotted tag (imagine a dryer sheet or gauze as reference) with very little provocation can be statically charged by briefly rubbing the tab(g) along an article of clothing. This will then aid in the retention of the cord to anywhere on your clothed person whilst walking, reaching or bending over. It will then also remain easily freed should you extend beyond the movement of the cord's limitation and as easily, often autonomously, returned to a suspended position. The image below is an approximation the while a more aesthetic version is more likely.

Google Chrome Orbital Clock Extension Update 6.5.4.3(0)
This afternoon witnessed the unveiling of a moderately sexy and evolving update to the Google Chrome Orbital Clock Extension which significantly altered the aesthetics and added several new beads of information including Lunar rise and set, weather and solar alerts. The Sun rise/set accuracy has been advanced in addition to the globe placement. Bugs are present, though we felt this platform was stable enough to release while we update from behind the curtain which requires no effort by your Google Chrome browser. If you haven't already joined the over 620 users who have begun the process of unifying knowledge and world, install the Orbital Clock extension today. As always, we remain open to suggestions from scientific minds for additional statistics to display. Saunter over to the request page and storm our brain.
Ultrasound Transducer Concept
A classified sonography technicianologist did not recently challenge us to conceive a transducer that dispenses ultrasound gel. Inevitably, we took it a step further to relieve fatigue and have first drafted this limber concept.

Modeled after a convex or linear probe, the pencil grip has been replaced with a palm down position, allowing even pressure, mor stable maneuverability and ergonomic comfort. A thumb wheel freely rotates the lower base, allowing the operator to reach sans an awkward wrist positioning or discomfort to the patient and ease of transition on radial imaging scans. On the keel of the lower base is an access to store a small volume of gel which is dispensed via a levered pump operated by the ring and four finger.

Why Not? Erogonomic Mobile Phone Camera
To recap, the Why Not? series interrogates overly complex components in practice today, ie defied no-brainers, such as asking why a more comfortable mobile phone camera angle seems to be protested by a sole minute element easily trounced, lens scratch protection?

99.9 per cent of mobile phone owners will operate their device in the comfortable ≤ 45 position. Engineers feel that then holding the phone vertically at eye-level is an easier design ingredient to cheat regardless that it is less comfortable for the user both physically and visually. A more stable platform is in the innate operational position which is adapted to both biological attributes. Thus, we have to ask, why not?
