General Motors Invents A Power Glove To Increase Your Strength

General Motors Invents A Power Glove To Increase Your Strength

It’s like Nintendo was way ahead of time when they brought us the Power Glove. It was a powerful (not really) tool to help us get even more immersed into our games. Well, a number of years later and someone apparently took the concept and adapted it to something real. As you might know, a lot of companies are working on exosuits and other technologies to allow us to become superhumans. Now, […]

New Google Search Site Enables Searches ’80s-Style

If you experienced the ’80s, you know that during that decade there were a lot of things that inspired us, and there were also things that made us positive and ultimately annoyed. The first is kind of easy to understand, but the annoyance of the ’80s could be one of the harder ones to figure out. What exactly made us annoyed and why? Well, it’s not quite as difficult to understand as you might think since the fact is that we could all predict what was to come in the future when it came to Internet speed, content and experiences. We could have predicted it in the most accurate of ways, but we didn’t have the technology to take us there yet. That is what has been developed in the years since then. Now that we are here, we can marvel over the retro ways things worked back then. It’s quite an interesting paradox if you ask me.

36 Pictures Of The Construction Of The Titanic


Advertise here with BSA

The tragic events that transpired on April 14th, 1912 after the unsinkable ship called the Titanic collided with an iceberg and sealed the fate of 1,517 people have become a legendary reminder of how fragile technology can be despite our beliefs that everything has been foreseen. It is also one of movie history’s most successful films ever. In two days, it will be 100 years since that groundbreaking engineering feat went out on its maiden voyage and met her ultimate doom. It’s a tragic saga that will most likely travel through time like a passed down memory of how seemingly simple human mistakes are sometimes the only things needed in order for a catastrophe to grip its claws around our lives.

14 Star Wars Models Created Entirely Out Of Paper

There is a lot of crafting going on around the world. Whether it is Minecrafting or just regular hand crafting, there is a lot of it. Recycling is of course an important aspect of that. It is also a way to preserve a little part of the world, and to save her from going sour prematurely so to speak. But it is when crafting goes a little bit more intricate that we really start to pay attention to it. Bit Rebels is of course a big fan of recycling, and we do whatever we can to preserve what we can in order to help. However, what I’m about to show you could only be created with the resources of trees. Sure, you could probably use something else as well, but they wouldn’t become the epic creations that they are without a nice, clean sheet of paper.

Intricate Guide To Finding The Perfect Sci-Fi Book [Flowchart]

The summer is on its way in some parts of the world, especially here, and people are starting to plan their vacations. There is a wide variety of destinations to choose from, but for some people, it doesn’t really matter where they are heading as long as they have a nice book to page through. Sitting in a chair soaking in the sun is one of the highest priorities you can have while on vacation, and choosing a book might seem like a small problem before going. But, as it seems, that couldn’t be farther from the truth. It can make or break a vacation completely if you decide on the wrong book while finding yourself miles away from the nearest book store.

Occupational Alphabet: The ABCs Of Popular Professions In 1850


Advertise here with BSA

This alphabet takes the word retro to a whole new level. If you were alive in 1850, what kind of job do you think you would have? I think I would have been a wax-chandler, a fishmonger or a wharfinger. Nah… I’m not even sure what those are, but apparently they were popular 162 years ago.

There are 59 professions on this list from 1850, and surprisingly, 47 of these careers still exist today. Of course, some of them are very unusual and odd, but they are still around nonetheless. This very charming example of woodcut art is such a fun way to learn about a little history.

The Real Twin Lens Lego Camera Build

When things start to get really advanced in technology, it can sometimes be hard to understand exactly what it is that our gadgets do. Well, of course we know what they will do, but understanding how they work and how things are accomplished within the mechanics are not always so clear. Some people strive to understand their gadgets, and they do so by completely disassembling them only to put them all together again. There is another layer of resourcefulness as well, and that is called Lego. Some builders out there concentrate on building gadgets entirely out of Lego to see if they can replicate the real deal with their creative blocks.

The Smallest Art Gallery In The Whole World

When a photographer who takes massively large photos wants to showcase them on the Internet, it can be a challenge. After all, our computer screens are only so wide, so capturing the full depth of a photograph of this magnitude can require a creative mind to figure out the details in order to display it in a way that does it justice.

Different photographers take different approaches to achieving this end. For example, some choose to feature their works via a panoramic effect, giving an interactive 360-degree experience to the viewer. Others choose to come up with a never before seen custom approach by using some imagination and a photo stitching software.

Aqua Tek S Ultra: Strongest Solar Powered iPhone Case To Date


Advertise here with BSA

I have friends who pretty much cover their entire iPhone with some weird looking case so the pioneering features of the phone itself don’t have a chance to shine, if that makes sense. I understand why they do that though since having a cell phone that is all scratched up because we have at some point bumped or dropped it isn’t exactly fun. Those scratches can annoy the hell out of you if they are in a bad place. We have featured a lot of cell phone cases here on Bit Rebels, and we are not about to stop just yet. The common theme lately has been that they are all made just to make our iPhones a little bit more personal. They are, as we say here, customization cases.
