All Four On One Interactive  Pad

All Four On One Interactive Pad

InterPad was probably conceptualized way before Facbook privacy issues surfaced, so I’m going to ignore that function till the dispute is settled. For this is an all-in-one controller that allows you to surf between Facebook (everyone’s moving!), Youtube, iTunes, and webcam with easy. Music, video, camera and games can be configured and downloaded via the easy hotkeys. Basically for those who are into the web world just for entertainment purposes. Sit down, relax and let the fun-times begin.

Meet My New Laptop Friends

Meet My New Laptop Friends

Allow me to introduce to you Monami, French for ‘my friend’; but here a project by the versatile Andrew Seunghyun Kim. The Monami set consists of Lacie’s pet: an external hard drive, an intuitive mouse and a mighty USB Stick…all packed into this desk-friendly device. The beauty about this project is that it’s quite do-able and simple. Jump ahead for the details.

GPS in a Hand Disk

GPS in a Hand Disk

This one’s for those of you who have low or no visibility with the eyes. Blind, sometimes people say. This is what’s known as the “DROP” GPS system, and it’s all hand-held. It uses the 3D dots you might be used to calling braille, here known more as Tactile Display technology, and it all works in conjunction with things such as a cane or seeing eye dog sometimes used by the blind. Smooth sailing on an abstract device.

Slim But Watch It! Wide Load Coming Thru

Slim But Watch It! Wide Load Coming Thru

OM is a wireless, optical mouse with an incredibly slim profile. If you thought Apple’s Magic Mouse was too slim, your hand is probably cramping up just thinking about using this. Wait up tho! Studies show most of the strain on your hands comes from the extremities so this mouse was made extra wide – almost as wide as an average hand to provide full support. At only 10mm at the highest point, it almost feels like you’re using nothing at all – just a bunch of people pawing at their desks. I’d love a picture of that.

Recharging With The Rubik’s Cube

Recharging With The Rubik’s Cube

We have seen the Rubik’s Cube do a lot of stuff. In fact if you hit Rubik here, you get to see an MP3 Player, a Braille version and security codes. The Cube Magic here is a battery charger that works on the electro magnetic induction principles; play with the cube, harness some energy and covert it to juice for recharging gadgets. Awesome!

Doggy Bone Is A USB Hub

Doggy Bone Is A USB Hub

The SMART • E is a smart USB Extender that saves you the embarrassment of pulling out the wrong plug out of the hub. Imagine losing out precious data or function just coz you pulled the wrong plug! How lame!

The practical dog-bone shape diversifies the sockets to the four ends and keeps the wires under control. Hopefully this won’t stay a concept for too long.

Flip Flop Mouse

Flip Flop Mouse

The Toe Mouse is especially designed for those who have upper limbs disability and cannot use their hands to move the mouse. This ergonomically designed gadget uses our natural ability to grip between the toes, for manipulating the Mouse. You need to slip it on, between the big toe and second, just as you would wear your flipflops. The sensor below the big toe acts as the left click button and the one below the second toe is the right click.

JAWS Revisited As A Mouse

JAWS Revisited As A Mouse

One can never picture sharks as these tender loving creatures thanks to the Hollywood hangover! Maybe this is why I have a mental block for the Shark Mouse Concept. The designers are convincing in their presentation: recyclable thermoplast body, minimum contact with the surface for reduced friction, slender design and chic aesthetics…

Maybe I should picture this more as a Necklace CarpetShark than a Great White and get over my musophobia!

Projecting With OO

Projecting With OO

Built from semi monocoque carbon fiber, the durable OO wireless projector is a part of the GEO series from designer David Riesenberg. As he explains, the projector displays high definition (1080p) data via WiFi or internal SSD storage and works independently from any wire for up to 3 hours. It does rely on its internal Li-Ion battery for some support but hooks up to any power source (via a single wire), should the need arise.

Free Diving is a Dangerous Sport

Free Diving is a Dangerous Sport

And yet more and more people are doing it. Why people why?!?! Listen, we weren’t meant to be underwater. The fact that our cell walls start to explode and oxygen levels deplete in a few minutes should be half a clue that mother nature didn’t design us to be here. Then again, nature didn’t design us to fly nor sit at the computer blogging all day so I digress. If you love free diving, then you may need the D-eepdive gadget.
