In our first last episode, we brought you the first in our three part series on LASIK, where we hit you with our definitive LASIK FAQ video. We followed that up with our LASIK surgery video. Now we are back, and head in for the follow-up visit to see just how successful the LASIK surgery was.

We find out what it is the doctors look for in the eyes after a LASIK surgery, and also how you should care for your eyes so that you can aid in healing.

We are bringing you an in-depth look at in our three-part , thanks to Lasik Plus.

In our last episode, we brought you the first in our three part series on LASIK, where we hit you with our definitive LASIK FAQ video. At the end, we told you that in the next video, it was surgery time - and here we are.

We continue following Monica through her LASIK experience, this time bringing our cameras in the operating room. We get the scoop on the different lasers that are used, and what each one does, and the doctors go into expectations of what one would feel during LASIK surgery. Then, it’s showtime, as the LASIK surgery begins. We bring you some extreme close-ups, so if you get squeamish with these kinds of things, you may want to cover your eyes, and the eyes of your loved ones. Monica even gives us a nice voiceover during the procedure, so that she can tell us how she was feeling during the procedure itself.

In our next episode, we continue the LASIK series, as Monica goes in for her follow-up appointment.

We are bringing you an in-depth look at in our three-part .

In this first episode, Monica goes in for a pre-op consultation, and meets with the folks over at LASIK Plus. During the visit, we captured just about every question about LASIK and laser vision correction surgery that we could, and we bring you all the common questions that most people have about LASIK, in great detail. We also show you some of the pre-op procedures that are done in order to determine if a candidate qualifies for vision correction, and ask about other alternatives for those who don’t.

That’s it for this first episode - if you are someone considering LASIK, or just wanted to know more about it, this is the video to watch. In our next episode, we give you a look at the actual procedure, as we take our cameras into the operating room. Be prepared.

At HP’s event in Berlin, Germany, we caught up with the CTO of HP’s Public Systems Group, Phil McKinney, who had some very interesting things to say about where HP believes the future will take us.

Phil talked with us about what’s coming in the future of technology - everything from wearable computing to a very advanced “avatar” that is programmed to make decisions just like you would, only you can send it to a meeting while you get to go play video games. We look forward to seeing what the future holds. Thanks Phil!

Cordless extension cords?  Powerbeam has it covered.  Right now, Powerbeam is perfecting a wireless, laser-based power transfer system that can act as an extension cord to power devices using a line-of-sight system that will send power as far as you need it to go.  The lasers are about the size of pepper flakes, and will transfer tens of watts of power, and in the future could transfer more.

Powerbeam has patented a battery powered safety system on the back end of the product that will stop the laser (which creates a warm feeling where it comes into contact with a person, nothing ray gun-esque here) when someone crosses its path.

Powerbeam estimates that their power transfer system is 12 months out to the consumer market.

Last February we told you about iHearSafe Headphones, which protects the hearing of children (or, really, anyone) by limiting audio decibels to 80 or below, regardless of how high the volume is cranked on the device. The headphones are available for $20 USD. By chance we literally ran into iHearSafe inventor and mom, Christine Ingemi, at this year’s , getting the word out about her earbuds. Check the video for the full scoop.

We visited at and checked out their TV specifically for gamers. It’s the GP3 Series of 1080p LCD TVs, with a 6 millisecond response time, which reduces lag time between your beloved console and the TV. It’s even available in 3 cool colors: Red, White or Black. Available for $1500. We also checked out their D64 Series of LCDs, 20% lighter and thinner than the previous D62 Series. Sizes range from 32” - 65” and are available now.

We loved AquosNet, an internet service in which up-to-the-minute, customizable information (weather, stocks, sports, traffic, Hollywood news and more) appears on the side of the TV screen at the push of a button. AquosNet is free with the SC94 and D74 Series.
