The simplest alarm as a knob

The simplest alarm as a knob

What we’re looking at right here is a device that essentially amounts to a countdown sound-blaster with a user-interface that’s just about as easy to use as humanly possible. That’s what it’s all about, and it’s the details that make it just fantastic enough to be the most awesome little twist-and-snooze gadget on the block.

Immacuate Extension

Immacuate Extension

HECHEK is an electrical outlet extension which offers a simple solution to the problem of cumbersome cords. The outlet base features 3 independently rotating sockets that together form a triangle that’s perfect for wrapping excess cord around. As an added safety feature, each socket remains closed until it is rotated 90 degrees to unlock with green/red lights indicating status. Until wireless charging technology takes over, it’s a great solution for keeping things tidy.

Voice Memo With Benefits

Voice Memo With Benefits

Vmo is quite a clever way of combining Voice Memos with QR Codes and Smartphones. Basically its a way to mark and capture data, be it voice or visual, and then revisit it at a later date. Essentially this means, if you are in class and taking notes, you may also want to record the lecture, so you tab and the recording using a supplied QR Code Sticker (that nestles sweetly in an allocated space in the smaprtphone jacket), scanning the code and readily accessing it later. The video below explains it all.

New Kinda Spy Cam

New Kinda Spy Cam

The Zipper is a flying indoor camera and recording device that can be used in a number of scenarios. The device uses the principle of gas balloons and combines it with the wit of propellers driven by a precision electric motor. Basically the hovering camera moves around a room very fast and silently and doesn’t consume much energy.

Computing Is Entertainment

Computing Is Entertainment

Insights to the paradigm shift in home computing have led to the development of the Microsoft KeyFlex. The device is a modern way to epitomize home computing with organic manipulations to the keyboard like instead of just pressing buttons the user has to bend, squeeze, twist and flex the device. To elaborate further, instead of tapping the “volume up” key several times you just bend the device upwards.

Capturing Elements in 3D

Capturing Elements in 3D

The 3D Material Straw is the ultimate hi-tech designer’s tool that goes beyond the limitations of photography for design research and uses discoveries from MIT’s recent exploration into elastomer sensitivity for recording true-to-life 3D surfaces and textures. When the devices is pressed into an object, the elastomer component mimics the surface and records information into a digital file format that can be used as an additional element in the design process.

The Computer Phone Is Here

The Computer Phone Is Here

What I like about the TPM VIPNI Concept P.C.P. Professional Computer Phone is that the concept is not ‘inspired’ by any existing design. Moreover it features components and aspects that are envisioned with existing and available technologies. Essentially this means you can build this powerhouse of a Pocket Computer Phone, right away!

Music In My Control

Music In My Control

The MusixCube is a hand-held controlling device for a given piece of digital music production software. It is meant for stuff like Ableton Live, Logic, etc. and combines several hardware items, like drum computers and other MIDI controllers. The aim of the project is to keep the music creators away from the computer and literally give them controls in their hands. Interaction between the device and music creating apps is based on the Rubik’s Tower.

The Daily News

The Daily News

With the advent of e-readers and tablets, the way we consume newspapers has changed drastically. To keep up with the trend is the Eco-newspaper, a projector device that projects the daily news to the table countertop while you flip through your favorite paper. The idea is not only to use technology to its best advantage, but also to cut down on the newspaper waste and conservation. Digital reading is here to stay, so I guess traditionalist will have to adopt it one day!

Gum Power

Gum Power

Poor Singapore, chewing gum is banned in that country so I suppose they may never get to experience the Chewing Gum Battery Concept! It is a simple and innovative idea where paper battery is kept charged at a solar empowered dispensing station, and can be easily used for gadgets whose battery dies out unexpectedly. I suppose it is intended for tourist places or maybe college campus, but it sure is a neat way to get instant power.
