Laser Precise Time

Laser Precise Time

The Reflectius Clock by Art Lebedev Studio has a whopping sixty rotating mirrors that successively reflect a single laser beam at precise angles to draw numbers. Complex triangular facets guild the beam to form the current time and showcase the efficiency and preciseness of a laser beam! Totally fascinating…don’t forget to check out the demo.

The Perfect Gift For Your Woman

The Perfect Gift For Your Woman

It’s quite apparent that all ladies will have a soft corner for the Accessories MP3 Player. Honestly, how many MP3 players can be as subtle and discreet as this! Fashion statement, jewelry, bling…you name it, and it’s there! I adore the little loop earring that goes into the ear as headphones, now only if Cartier or Tiffany can get a whiff of this…

Mouse On A Diet

Mouse On A Diet

If you were to strip off the mouse and bring it to the bare essential, how would you design it? Kim Hye-shin perceives it as a single strip that can be bent into the infinite-sign-shape, with only the necessary features on it. Interesting take, but not for everyone; Bendy M may be a good enough design if your focus is more on the keyboard and use a mouse just as a pointer. But for a mouse that needs to help me do Photoshop, I need substance, grip, the whole nine yards. Then again one man’s medicine is another’s poison!

Flip Flop Mouse

Flip Flop Mouse

The Toe Mouse is especially designed for those who have upper limbs disability and cannot use their hands to move the mouse. This ergonomically designed gadget uses our natural ability to grip between the toes, for manipulating the Mouse. You need to slip it on, between the big toe and second, just as you would wear your flipflops. The sensor below the big toe acts as the left click button and the one below the second toe is the right click.

Not QBert, It's Qbiosk!

Not QBert, It’s Qbiosk!

It DOES have a cube in it though, but I must warn you, it doesn’t play music… or does it? Instead this just one fabulously idyllic sexy lovely mid-sized table. Did I mention it’s shiny? It looks rather vintage, sort of swanky, but this little baby has a secret: the ability to be equipped with a touchscreen computer on the surface, offering video and audio output. Fifteen or 17″ screen and built-in USB reader may come standard. It’s the Qbiosk coffee bedside table!

Never Get A Scratch On The LCD or Lens

Never Get A Scratch On The LCD or Lens

The agony of getting a scratch on a digital camera LCD screen is too close to home! One time I broke the screen while riding a coaster at Genting Highlands Park! And the other time, desert sand of Dubai ruined the lens. Only if my present Kodak had a 360 degree display protector as seen on this Zero Angle Digital Camera, I wouldn’t worry so much. The LCD screen is like a hard cover over the lens, that you flip 360 degrees to open up and use. When shut it’s like a sleek metallic blub, when its open…it’s a neat-o screen with all the camera navigation intact!

How Much Clearer a Switch

How Much Clearer a Switch

I ain’t never seen. I’ve seen some switches with words on them before, but never before such an elegant one. I challenge you to show me a more elegant “ON” switch. In fact, this one is so elegant, and cocky in its elegance, it is titled ‘”On” Switch.’ Our man in Russia, Burakov Denis, sent in this design with the clear intent in mind! To show the world exactly what was going on in the world of lightswitches. But that’s not saying it’s just for that, no! All you engineers, hook this up to your weirdo machines!

See What Your Pet Sees

See What Your Pet Sees

Pet Vision isn’t the only device touted to record everything your pet sees but it’s small, compact, and actually looks decent compared to some of the monsters on the market. The integrated camera sends live video or intermittent photos to your computer so you can see what poochie and… what do they generically call cats, kitties?… so you can see what kitty are doing. It was originally created to help disabled people keep an eye on their pet but anyone could enjoy it. I plan on raising a cat army equipped with such devices. All shall bow down to me.

Enchanting Folding-out Laptop With Utopian Specs

Enchanting Folding-out Laptop With Utopian Specs

No matter how advanced, progressive, sleek and lightweight our laptops get, the one thing that we sorely miss is an elaborate keyboard. I know of someone who uses his Macbook but in conjunction with a wireless keyboard. Many hybrids and self-built versions are out there being used by folks, so the question really is, are we happy with what the industry is dishing out to us? Or do we have to lust after Utopian concepts like the iWEB 2.0…with really drool-worthy features!

MacBook 3D! Glasses Included

MacBook 3D! Glasses Included

2009 was the year of EVERYTHING IS TOUCHSCREEN but times-a-changing. I’m just gonna go ahead and make a prediction for 2010. We’re going to see a bag load of concepts with 3D-enabled technologies. Take a look at this MacBook 3D and get used to some of the features. It’s like any other MacBook except there are stereoscopic iSight cameras, a touchscreen trackpad (soooo 2009), and a hingeless spine design.

JAWS Revisited As A Mouse

JAWS Revisited As A Mouse

One can never picture sharks as these tender loving creatures thanks to the Hollywood hangover! Maybe this is why I have a mental block for the Shark Mouse Concept. The designers are convincing in their presentation: recyclable thermoplast body, minimum contact with the surface for reduced friction, slender design and chic aesthetics…

Maybe I should picture this more as a Necklace CarpetShark than a Great White and get over my musophobia!

One Screen, One Nintendo

One Screen, One Nintendo

Welcome to the future of handheld gaming. I mean it. This is one of those futures in gaming that I’m really betting on. This project is sleek, it’s nice, it becomes flat, it’s basically everything I imagine the gaming industry hitting on in a few years. This project is a concept for a future class of Nintendo hand-held gaming, really similar to the current Nintendo DS in many respects. This one’s got a fully interactive 3-D interface. Basically the same amazing stuff you see in the newest Iron Man movie, all jammed in a cute little Nintendo.

It's A Portable Talking Box

It’s A Portable Talking Box

Designer Bill Gould hates mobile phones but broke down and bought one. Amused at the thought, his coworkers asked for a picture and Mr. Gould came up with the Edi-Mobile concept as a joke. With a background in Industrial Archeology, he designed a phone Edison would have loved. The crank initiates the call and there’s a slide out numeric keypad, but the best bit is the 50 lb lead battery required to operate it. Unlimited text messaging not included.
