Since Duracell and Powermat formed their wireless charging alliance late last year, we’ve seen the Powermat debut at CES and heard quite a bit about the company’s vision for future battery tech. Today the company is unveiling a new charging system which, while not drastically different from the Powermat we’ve seen before, bundles a few useful products together. In addition to a Powermat for charging the iPhone or iPhone 4, the 24-Hour Power System includes a phone case (necessary for juicing a phone on the Powermat) and a portable backup battery with both microUSB and Apple connectors. The whole package will set you back $ 100, and it’s available online and in NYC stores starting today. Though the system currently only supports the iPhone, the company says it will add compatibility with “an array of other leading smartphones” by this fall. Check out our hands-on demo with Duracell Powermat CEO Ron Rabinowitz below.

Sprinkles, an upscale Cupcake bakery, is opening a 24-hour ATM at their Beverly Hills location (WHICH I WILL VISIT AND REVIEW) that will serve cupcakes, cupcake mixes, dog cupcakes (cupcakes for dogs not made WITH dogs), ice cream and apparel 24-hours a day. Need a red velvet cupcake at 3AM? Your boyfriend just broke up with you! Also, it’s not actually an ATM, it’s an automat, so after you touch-screen your order there’s gonna be a person behind the thing pushing your food through. I know, not as cool. Still, if it’s between late-night cupcakes or taquitos and a Slurpee from 7-11, I’d definitely…”Taquitos, hands down — plus they sell dong bags behind the counter.” AHAHAHAHAHA — Don Juan, ladies and gentlemen!
Thanks to Elizabeth and FNC, who get their cupcake fix at 3AM like normal people: with a tub of Betty Crocker frosting and a spoon.

For the past two years, all sorts of gadget, social media and design geeks have descended upon Savannah, GA. The goal is clear: to spend the weekend hearing from the nerds they look up to, including our pal Major Nelson, who spoke back in 2009. This year was no different — and to make things even more interesting — event organizers invited attendees to participate in the first ever Geekend Hackathon. Teams of up to four members, fueled by a copious supply of Mountain Dew and pizza, were given 24 hours to come up with the most innovative desktop, mobile or web application they could. There was just one catch: teams had to incorporate at least three out of five key words that were randomly assigned to them. The only other stipulation was that if the code used to create each app wasn’t already available online, they had to place the open source that they developed in a web repository before the event.
We were there to catch the results, which showcased a mixed bag of entertaining (and useful) applications. Projects ranging from an app tracking vegetable eating habits to one that uses image recognition to bring your favorite comics to a mobile device showed just what could be done in a day — given enough caffeine, of course. Another allowed you to feed your urge to hug every cat, while a neighborhood advocacy community enabled concerned citizens to vote on issues in their area. Rounding out the field was a field trip database for teachers to share ideas on sites to take their students for the best experience. Two winners — judge’s choice and people’s choice — received a super geeky trophy (pictured above) and a major boost to their street…er online cred. If you’re yearning to find out more about this year’s happenings, hit the coverage link below and start booking your trip for next year.

Boy, these Franco-Swiss research teams sure do like to exhibit their work to the world. After the Large Hadron Collider crew did a live webcast of their record-breaking 7 TeV proton collisions, here’s Captain Piccard’s Solar Impulse gang showing off their latest feat via a live video stream. Taking off shortly before 7AM Central European Time today, the HB-SIA craft is currently cruising above the idyllic plains of Switzerland, with the plan being for it to start gently descending through the night and plopping itself back down on terra firma early in the morning. Hit the source link to track its laps in real time, replete with sporadic commentary from the monitoring crew. It’s riveting stuff.
