Electric Dream Machine

Electric Dream Machine

Is that the cross section of a Foo Fighter? No way, it’s a tattoo machine. It’s the newest tattoo machine. It’s the best. It’s weight is less than a third of the average machine. It’s carved out of solid aluminum. It’s much less painful to the tattoo collector than the classic machine. It’s got two methods for mayhem: while it’s the first air-powered tattoo machine in the world, it’s got an attachment which allows it to also run on electricity as well. It’s the “Neuma Hybrid Tattoo Machine” pokin’ through.

Big Ears Has Its Advantages

Big Ears Has Its Advantages

Will you think less of me if I confess that even at my age I find cartoons and children’s programs adorable? I mean, why is that grownups have to be judgmental and scorn Mr. Bean or scoff at Tom & Jerry? Why can’t we be as easygoing as innocent children? For example I can literally visualize many of you going “Tch Tch, why is this Shrek MP3 player here? This ain’t a toy store!” FYI, it’s here coz many well known MP3 manufacturers ignore something as vital as earphone management while designing their players.

My Only Dreem! To be Sponsored by a Label!

My Only Dreem! To be Sponsored by a Label!

Hello Extreme Sportsmen-and-women. You know as well as I do that the way to go pro, the way to keep your brain on the slopes, the coping, and the air, is to get sponsored be an awesome label that will pay your way. To get seen by these labels, one of the ways to get seen, that is, is to film and/or photograph yourself being extreme. How to do this? Get the “4P.” It has 2 pieces: the camera and the strap-on band. They work in concert using fast GPS to find and film you in major action.

Medical Nanny

Medical Nanny

I find it really funny that the guy who gave us the awesome Lounge Bar has devised a medication manager. It’s like first tempting you to drink and then telling you- no worries, tank up, I’ve got the hangover pills ready for you to pop! The Braun Clever Care Medical Coach not only stores all you medicines, but also syncs in your medical records and prescriptions straight from the doc’s office via GSM or Internet. It also provides a database to hold all medical records for the entire family.

This Ornate Scroll Is A Gadget

This Ornate Scroll Is A Gadget

It’s inlayed with some mother-of-pearl work and looks like the Korean ‘Najawnchilgi’ lacquer ware craft, but Gyo-Ji is actually a translation device. Compared to the ViewTrans that we saw recently, this scroll features a rolled-up screen and allows you to write the foreign script directly onto it for translation. Another way of getting the job done is to place the screen on the foreign script and then hit the translation button. At this rate I think translation dictionaries and handbooks will soon be redundant.

3D TV Glasses, Geek is Chic

3D TV Glasses, Geek is Chic

3D TV glasses make the movie or television show you’re watching look exponentially more real – with objects flying off the screen and careening in your direction, and creepy characters reaching out to grab you. Wearing 3-D glasses makes you feel like you’re a part of the action – Good times

Apple Ate My Mouse

Apple Ate My Mouse

I think very few people have ventured into concepts regarding the mouse let alone an Apple Mouse. So naturally when I came across this slim-trim device I was tempted to prod further. Besides looking AWSOME, the Apple Slim Mouse packs in Bluetooth and switches between trackball (400dpi) and laser (1600dpi) with a micro adjustment. Smooth sailing is what you get, and the options of aluminum or plastic finishes. BTW, I wonder why would anyone want to design a trackball mouse in this day and age!

Let's Spill Some Pics And Splash Some Music

Let’s Spill Some Pics And Splash Some Music

Every time I have to do a Mac post I get butterflies in my stomach, coz you guys laud him too much or pan him badly! Either ways, I’m a big fan of concepts, hence here we go again. On the platter is the iAcqua iPhone Dock with a transparent touch screen, speakers and a projector. Place your phone on the top slot and tilt it slowly to either side (like a faucet) to access your photos, songs or movies. Amazingly all the icon images cascade down randomly like the flow of water. Touch a particular icon (before it disappears) to access it.

Is this Starfox on Wheels? Polygonal!

Is this Starfox on Wheels? Polygonal!

Get your Somersaults, Bombs, and Barrel Rolls all gathered up, folks, cause here’s the “Polygon Hot Rod.” From an old face with mad new ideas, designer Adam Zerbib brings this aesthetic-heavy concept to the streets, but not to the race track. Zerbib mentions wind-tunnel trials but tells them off as a limit!

Freeze it Until There's a Cure

Freeze it Until There’s a Cure

Don’t trick yourself! There’s no cure for smelly food. This pail right here thinks it is hot stuff. It’s called the “Minus” and it’s basically cold hearted. Open the lid, place the banana peels inside, close, click shut, set temp, and press go. Coldness. Do not drop your pop cans in here unless they are all the way empty. Also probably not a good place for dead animals.

Don’t Talk To Me, Talk To My Robot

Don’t Talk To Me, Talk To My Robot

The future of technology simply overwhelms me at times. For instance this Nokia Nia project that designer Sebastian Müller undertook along with the Nokia Research Center in Helsinki. Nia is a robotic communication device that strives to make everyday communication more intuitive. It’s that kinda device that takes care of your e-mails, messages, calls or news instantaneously. It adapts to your needs and executes operations as per your requirements.

Robots Are Now Precision Surgical Assistants

Robots Are Now Precision Surgical Assistants

Robots doing nip, tuck, snip are not new to the medical industry; therefore one would wonder what the agile MIRO is doing here. Well it’s here coz it’s a light-weight, versatile precision surgical assistant that will probably redefine open surgery as well as minimally invasive surgical procedures like endoscopic heart surgery. MIRO weighs almost 10 kg and has dimensions similar to those of the human arm.

Sittin' on a Pole with Cold Cathode

Sittin’ on a Pole with Cold Cathode

This thang is called the “Plof.” It’s a self-bearing structure (a sort of relaxed pole snake) with a 30mm diameter methacrylate tube containing a cold cathode lamp. The cold cathode light emits no heat, lives for 45,000 hours (aka 10 years,) and does not exceed 1000 Volts. You know what that means: big-time low volt party! Everyone party around the Plof!
