Edit Video on Video, Confused?

Edit Video on Video, Confused?

Okay so recording video is pretty simple nowadays. Companies have pretty much aced usability and made it super easy for even the most tech-challenged. Problem is a lot of video stays in memory, unedited and uninteresting because editing is a little harder than pushing a button. Of course people with Macs know iMovie does a great job editing video (OMG did I just plug Apple?) but what about the rest of us? Maybe you need the Video concept.

iShow, Micro Projection for Your i-memes

iShow, Micro Projection for Your i-memes

During his studies at H.I.T., Moti Barzilay had to design something iconic in the realm of Apple products – something he felt was missing from their lineup. He came up with the iShow. Yes another “i” meme. It’s a portable projector designed for Apple’s line of iPods, iPhones, and MacBooks. The clam inspired body turns on when you pull the two discs apart to expose a pico projector and ports. He doesn’t mention pixel resolution but the projection system is LED based and no you can’t use it as a Yo-Yo.

The Age of Aquarius... in Sprinkling

The Age of Aquarius… in Sprinkling

While automatic lawn and crop sprinklers have existed for some time, the Aquarius takes automatic watering to a new level. While current automatic sprinklers activate on a time-based schedule, Aquarius detects moisture levels in the soil and waters according to changing conditions. No more sprinkling in rainstorms for you!

Digitize That Stack of Business Cards

Digitize That Stack of Business Cards

Business cards have become less of a way to disseminate contact information and more about brand extension, so it makes no sense to spend so much money on them only to be thrown out after someone transcribes all the relevant information into an address book. The B-Scanner helps with both aspects.

Zune Phone Finally, Okay Maybe

Zune Phone Finally, Okay Maybe

I know a lot of you out there are just waiting for the Zune phone – Microsoft’s answer to the current king of multitouch telephonic devices. Until they actually confirm, check out the Zune Contact concept by Adam Huffman. He’s revamped the interface, made the body madly thin, slapped on a 5 MP camera and went all touchscreeny. Sure it’s just pie-in-the-sky now but who knows, something similar may come from Redmond Washington. Oh BTW, that big white button at the bottom is really a soft cushy thumb rest. . . yeah.

Like Peas in a Pod

Like Peas in a Pod

The Pea Speaker system is bound to be costly, incurring damages from being tossed around, but that’s what designer Lu Le wants – a playful way to share music. Each pod holds 7 wireless bluetooth speakers. Only one possesses the one ring to rule them all because it controls global volume. Each sphere is powered by a lithium ion rechargeable via induction when placed in the pod. The system doesn’t do surround sound since it can’t separate channels, but it’s a good way to fill a large area with a mixed stereo track. Snazzy!

Lick Your Way to a Better You

Lick Your Way to a Better You

Have you ever imagined that you could lick on a lollipop and change the way you think? I am not talking about some illegal hallucinogenic drug, but a legal way to changing how you think or do things. Eye Candy can. Even though the concept sounds like something from the “Electric Kool-aid Acid Test”, Eye Candy uses a Sensory Substitution Technology to naturally send vibrant, emotive images to your mind.

LED Trojan Horse

LED Trojan Horse

Frog Design is at it again, this time with an environmentally friendly LED based lightbulb. Although CFL’s are marketed to be widely superior than¬†incandescents, the fact of the matter is they’re still made using very toxic chemicals. Mass acceptance has also been slower than anticipated but it’s obvious why – the cold bluish tint they cast and being non-dimmable.

With the video wave in full ascent, the space-aware video-screen is right around the corner.

Bangin' Music Parties Coming to a Spot Near You

Bangin’ Music Parties Coming to a Spot Near You

The PodSpot is one large industrial sized speaker system designed for your wee iPod – or any other Mp3 player for that matter. It’s splash proof and designed to be rugged enough for outdoor events. Surprisingly it’s battery powered pushing a multitude of tweeters, horns and two 10″ subwoofers good enough for 24 hours. If the 115 db don’t attract enough attention, I’m sure the sight of 50 people dancing their asses off will.
