In Pictures: The 31 weirdest, wackiest and coolest sci/tech stories of 2012

From Google Android development to crazy iPhone stunts, it’s been a busy year

What do you get when you combine work experience at Apple, NASA, MIT and BMW with an expert industrial designer? One helluva cup of coffee apparently. This is no run-of-the-mill coffee brewing system either, unless you have the $11,000 the new Blossom One Limited system costs. Blossom is the invention of three key people. Jeremy Kuempel, president of the company and the inventor of Blossom's core technology. He has an engineering degree from MIT and has worked with Apple (on the iPad2), Tesla Motors and BMW. Matt Walliser is the chief engineer and worked for NASA. Joey Roth, is the lead designer who has designed some of the world's great teapots, the company says.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
