Blow-up Mouse

Blow-up Mouse

The Jelly Click takes mouse portability to the extreme. All the electronic circuity lives on a small flexible board. The body itself is just soft plastic. Whenever you need a mouse, blow up the Jelly Click, attach the USB cable and you’re good to go.  As a bonus, it’s a total floaty for you swimming challenged people.

The Sound of Bamboo

The Sound of Bamboo

Bears like it so why not humans? This bamboo inspired stereo looks good (ignore the pink) and thru the natural acoustics of cylindrical objects, sounds good too. But it’s not just nature-ry, it also has every accoutrement a technophile would want. Think wifi enabled, wireless speakers, integrated LED screen, MP3 line in, remote desktop syncing, radio, and yes – cd player.

Another Simple MP3 Player

Another Simple MP3 Player

This one doesn’t have a name. It’s just referred to as the “Tactile MP3″ player. Why tactile? Simply because the 5 basic controls necessary to master your music are raised bumps, something like braille. The idea is you can control your music all by the sense of touch. Design wise, it’s pretty slick, like a dollop of shiny mercury backed by some creamy marshmallow puff. Mmm mmm!

Some Retro And Nature In My Mobiles

Some Retro And Nature In My Mobiles

It’s not hard to see the future of electronics is all about slim and sleek, metal and glass, technogadgetmatry and multimedia. Is there any room for the retro stylings of yesteryear? And what about nature? Shouldn’t something organic make its way into our hyper-tech designs? Designer Seungchan Lee thinks the CulArt (pronounce Cool Art) concept fulfills both.

The Sound of Light

The Sound of Light

Not really what you think. The NewLight desk lamp has an integrated MP3 player. Although details are sparse, you can also load up audio books and have the lamp read to you while you fall asleep. Interesting concept. Perhaps the lamp light can slowly dim on its own at a preset time.

Flying Stick Camera

Flying Stick Camera

The title should be enough to explain what this is. In case it isn’t, it’s a flying stick with a camera! Rub it between your palms to get some kinetic energy stored up. Then release and the Flying Stick automatically takes pictures at set intervals. You know what they say, everybody looks 5 lb lighter when photographed from above.

E-Paper Slap Bracelets

E-Paper Slap Bracelets

Everybody had them or at least seen ‘em. Slap bracelets were usually made of thin piece of aluminum wrapped in fabric. Using the same form, Chocolate Agency came up with a mini multimedia device that snaps on with a slap. The entire surface is E-Paper and possesses all its thin, high contrast, power efficient qualities. The length can be adjusted by adding magnetic snaps to the ends. Best part is there’s no recharging needed. It gets all the power it needs via kinetic energy so go ahead, go slap happy.

Remote Makes You Wanna Gamble

Remote Makes You Wanna Gamble

It’s like playing a card game! Sort of. . . The Game Card remote enables you to control volume and change channels all via card playing like gestures. Sliding your thumb up and down in the center raises/lowers volume. Sliding the top card over a tad changes channel. Sliding it all the way takes you on a wild channel surf.
