Crowdfunding site specifically for Sony product concepts, is an all-or-bust funding style, and ships only to japanese addresses. Close but no cigar Sony.

Getting to “Yes” for Corporate Innovation | Steve Blank on
This is pretty good advice actually, but need a C-level innovation leader (CiO) to back it or it has no legs.

Gofor: Drones on Demand
Fake, but will probably become real. Imagine a defense contractor providing mercenary services this way? UCAVaaS,HALEaaS,EVACaaS, yeah it can keep going. UGV as a commercial service, like an autonomous self-following cargo suitcase/segway.

Peter Thiel putting his money where his mouth is, supporting a incubator like organization to support independent scientists and small groups for breakthrough research. Because big research is largely gone (corporate labs have either died or turned into short cycle incremental improvement developers) or screwed up (university labs).

METI trying to get into the web 2.0 game. Some interesting ideas, like converting closed school facilities in rural areas (which are numerous) into distributed datacenter operations. Which might actually work if you razed the schools and put in containerized datacenter pods, containerized generators, and containerized cooling on the former front lawns.

Due to a lack of good science coverage in mainstream media, a pack of universities decided to get together to create their own science news wire service. Whether this is just a simple meta-aggregator, or the beginning of something new and good is still up in the air.

Cell Beta Prototypes
A potentially worthy attempt at re-imagining the academic journal article format in the day of the information age. Making articles dynamic and adaptable to the user is a major step up, interfacing with the end user's personal tag/bookmark/citation information store.

may 2009 by asteroza / UK - Robot achieves scientific first
I thought things like this already existed, at least for pharmaceutical companies. Basically a robot that can test it's experiment results immediately, that does a brute force material/genetic/chemical combination testing regime to try to identify/quantify/catalog every possible combination. It's a kind of basic research that would take forever to do with humans, and is sometimes useful to double check existing data which actually was determined over 100 years ago that nobody has bothered to actually check since and assumes is accurate. Using AI to narrow the search parameters and not do a full brute forcing of every possible combination is in some ways smart, especially for biological/genetic studies where there can be predictive indicators from current experiments to assist in narrowing down which branch of a combinatorial tree is best to follow first.

Two Stanford students rethink the light switch « Nudge blog
If I understand this correctly, it's a variable torque resistance rotary dimmer light switch. If energy is in high demand/expensive, it makes it harder to turn, but won't stop you from turing on the light to the degree desired. Only problem is that it is best paired with analog lighting devices, so any light that can't be dimmed wouldn't benefit, at least not directly unless the switch provides resistance to a traditional on/off switch motion.
