Not Just 3D Goggles

Not Just 3D Goggles

Do these look familiar to you? These goggles? These… 3D goggles? To my, they look like the “Awesome” 3D Environment games they used to have at the state fair. It was sooo 3D! Almost like real life! These are not a game. They are heavy, so do not touch them. This is REAL real life. These are a medical instrument for elderly people. The “ForeSeeHome” by designer Eitan Shariff of I2D: not to be having fun with.

Dirty Kitchen Towels Make Me Sad

Dirty Kitchen Towels Make Me Sad

Kitchen dish towels are basically vacation spots for the propagation of bacteria. Put it under a microscope and I’m sure you’d see a whole Club Med resort. Gross! We don’t wash our kitchen towels nearly as often as we should. WIPE-C DISHCLOZ is a mini washer designed just for kitchen towels. Drop it in the very cool iris opening top and voila! Clean kitchen towels. Not sure if it uses water and detergent but I’m already sold on the idea.

Zip Up Tangles

Zip Up Tangles

Your trouser fly just influenced my friend Ji. Quit smirking, coz his YI earphones concept will take care of a lot of wire-tangle-hassles in the future, if it ever gets to production. Simple thought process and application! If pants can have a zipper to hold in the essentials then why the idea can’t be used on earphones to manage them when not in use! Zip then open when you want to use them; zip them shut when you want to store them.

Visualizing the Peanut Gallery

Visualizing the Peanut Gallery

Whom amongst you partakes in the art of search engine optimization and general internets traffic-directing? How’s your web-page doing? I’m sure a lot of you use such as Google Analytics or whatnot. But what if you want a giant bowl-clock with pretty amazing lights that help you visualize your traffic fate? It’s big and crazy and good.

What a Sense of Direction! Orbita Mouse Review

What a Sense of Direction! Orbita Mouse Review

We don’t often review mice here on YD unless it’s something really unique and or special. When Cyber Sport approached us about reviewing the Orbita, a hockey puck shaped mouse, we thought “hey why not!” My last experience with a puck mouse left a bad taste in my mouth (ahem: iMac) so I was prepared to be let down, or was I? Hit the jump!

The Case of the Disappearing Home Interior

The Case of the Disappearing Home Interior

Whoa. Where’d it go? Oh shizzle it’s future day! This particular project is projected for 20 years from now. It’s meant to take full responsibility of the technologies that will be available in 2029. So it uses… buttons? Oh wait. It’s also made to retain the humanity of it’s users: humans. That’s why the furniture and whatnot is made of nice wood, steel, and glass. The entire system of this kitchen is contained under and above it, entirely concealed when not in use.

Eggy-Blob for Television President

Eggy-Blob for Television President

What in the heck is this thing? Is it an egg? Is it a blob? Nay! It’s eggyblob -I mean, actually, the “Infinity Remote Control.” Designed by Damien Crossan, this remote was designed to fit a model of a possible remote 7 to 10 years from now. This remote utilized “4G” technology, lithium polymer batteries, and flexible touchscreens. And for its next trick, separation anxiety!

Apple Mac Folder

Apple Mac Folder

Is it next MacBook? no, but everyone likes to put their 2 cents in. It’s called the Mac Folder – not all that different from any other laptop but this could be the netbook everyone wants/expects Apple to make. The UI has been reworked to work more like the interfaces seen on the iPod Touch and iPhone and of course it has a multi-touch screen and OF COURSE it’s as thin as Kate Moss if not more. Want one?

Braille E-Book

Braille E-Book

Visually challenged people require braille books in order to read. However, not many books are available in braille due to cost and inefficiency. Translating a 500 page book into braille nearly doubles the thickness. EAP is a technology that can dynamically change the surface pattern by way of an electromagnetic signal – simulating braille text. Not exactly a new idea but a nice executive nonetheless.

3,500 Bacteria Per Square Inch

3,500 Bacteria Per Square Inch

Holy crap that’s how much there is on the average elevator button according to designer Skeet Wang. Skeet Wang, yes, Skeet Wang, has taken the idea of the touchless button and applied it to elevators. Which is a good idea if the other fact Skeet Wang says is true: that the 3,500 is 17 times greater than the average toilet seat.

SpacePilot Pro 3D Mouse BREAKING!

SpacePilot Pro 3D Mouse BREAKING!

A few weeks back 3Dconnexion gave me a sneak peak at the SpacePilot Pro 3D mouse. It addresses a number of issues I had with SpaceExplorer and ups the ante by adding a barrage of new technologies. It seems they really wanted to hear from users. Professionals spanning multiple mediums all gave their 2 cents and today the SpacePilot Pro makes its debut. Hit the jump for the official press release. We can’t wait to get our hands on one!
