Shooting Dice

Shooting Dice

I suck at rolling dice. If the game requires it, I know I’ll come in last. It’s like some celestial power is inhibiting any positive chance I have in what’s supposed to be a random result. Although maybe it’s because I’m a person of the computer age and numeric dice are just so yesterday to me. That’s where Jaehyung Hong’s keyboard dice come in.

Keeping Earphones Tidy

Keeping Earphones Tidy

Earphones can be a pain since they magically tangle no matter how neatly you pack them. This earphone concept by Jaehyung Hong keeps things tidy by running the cables thru a small plastic lanyard with integrated controls. When your earphones aren’t in use, just roll them up, pop the earbuds into the slot and you’re good to go.

Midnight Bookworms Rejoice

Midnight Bookworms Rejoice

I find my best reading is done at night. There’s too much stimulation during the day for me to fully immerse myself in a book. But then there’s the problem of disturbing the person next to you if you keep a light on so what’s one to do? The MARK bookmark is just the ticket. During the day it’s like any other bookmark but at night, glows to illuminate your pages via FOLED technology.

Flameless Rechargeable USB Lighter

Flameless Rechargeable USB Lighter

In lieu of lighter fluid and a flint, this lighter uses resistance coils to create heat. It’s the same technology found in car lighters. The small rechargeable battery cell powering the coil can be recharged via USB. On top of that, there’s some flash memory in there to store files. Damn, might as well give it a couple swiss blades and a nose hair trimmer to complete the package. And Kool? Doesn’t anyone still smoke that?

Sony Ericsson PXi For Lefties

Sony Ericsson PXi For Lefties

Bence Bogar must be a leftie because his SE PXi concept is a product specifically created for all lefties tho it’s flexible enough for righties too. Obviously following the current direction of SE’s P series of smartphones, the PXi is powerful while staying somewhat slim and ergonomic. The body is magnesium framing a big 3.3 inch touchscreen. The screen rotates automatically ala iPhone and is optimized for both finger and stylus input.

Your Dentist Will Know Everything

Your Dentist Will Know Everything

When I’m flat on my back, mouth open, bright lamp shining overheard, I feel vulnerable. So when my Dentist asks me “have you been flossing” in that dark tone all Dentist possess. I want to lie and say “everyday, twice a day!” but sadly I know deep down inside, my Dentist can see right thru me. The Oral Hygiene Monitor makes it that much easier for your Dentist to know what you’ve been doing with your mouth.

Every Stalker's Dream

Every Stalker’s Dream

Digital cameras will continue to get smaller and smaller so long as technology successfully miniaturizes high quality optics. The Canon Snap concept is a look into what a future device might look like. The Snap is tiny enough to wear on your finger yet powerful enough to give today’s bigger cameras a run for their money.

Seniors Hate Dialing, Apparently

Seniors Hate Dialing, Apparently

My grandmother can’t be bothered with typing in a 9 digit number to call me. In fact she usually asks someone else to dial the number if it’s not already on speed dial. Unfortunately even speed dial isn’t enough for grammy. She wants it easier. The T-Phone is perfect for her.
