No Motion, No Electricity - Cutie!

No Motion, No Electricity – Cutie!

I’m not calling your face attractive, I’m talking about the the BugPlug! It’s a power device that’s cute as a button! I’m sure you’re quite nice looking though, that’s why BugPlug has it’s eyes on you! It detects when you’re in the facility and keeps your devices powered. When you’re gone, the timer goes off, and when it’s done, the devices are done too! Not destroyed, just denied their electricity until you get back.

Waste No Waste; They Are A Treat For Plants!

Waste No Waste; They Are A Treat For Plants!

If we talk about the future of dining (everyday home meals), it’s quite alright to assume ready-to-eat steaks and pot roast being available in capsules. Compact food meaning easier to cook and clean-up and this is where the Electrolux Eco Cleaner, a portable, compact dishwasher comes in play. Using ultrasonic waves to ionize food particles on the dishes, this dishwasher converts the food/grease to reusable compost for plants. Thereby waste will no longer be waste, but healthy meals for the greens. Squeaky Clean dishes, just a by-product!

Read Really Fat Books In A Jiffy

Read Really Fat Books In A Jiffy

The real reason for the Help Readers device is to help the silver generation, who is fond of reading, cope with weak eyesight. The handheld scanner converts the text into audio and is of a convenient size to facilitate portability. My reason to get one will be to scan through the thick fiction novels and design books that Long Tran devours for breakfast! Damn I can’t read as much as that man; I barely get past the preface of Harry Potter!

Swanky Bluetooth With A Dash Of Convenience

Swanky Bluetooth With A Dash Of Convenience

If I had to point out the one really good feature in the Aliph Solo Bluetooth Headset, it would be the fact that it doesn’t require separate recharging. Apparently the earpiece is consolidated into the cellphone and charges auto when you hook up your mobile phone for juice. Now plenty of us folks have charging-chores: laptops, phones, MP3 players…get the drift? So one less item to tank up, is a blessing!

Want A 3D Mobile Phone?

Want A 3D Mobile Phone?

With Samsung and company outing 3D televisions for home viewers and China loving 3D newspapers, it’s not too farfetched to picture the technology being used in laptops and mobile phones. Focusing on the use of 3D in cellphones, Petr Kubik has designed this all-in-one-piece that includes the glasses, intuitive stylus and expandable screens. The 3D apps support 3D movies and camera plus allow you to make surreal calls with family and friends that pop outta the screen!

Big Boat Dragovic Yacht

Big Boat Dragovic Yacht

With a name like Vuk Dragovic, one doesn’t need to go very far to find a unique name for any sort of design they’ve made and need to name. However! Dragovic does also happen to be a world-class name-creator too, so the concept you’re about to look at goes by the name “Atreides Yacht” and lives up to the elegance of the letters that title it. And it’s got some radical innovation on it’s side too, hooray! And not just in the greener section of things. It’s got a fully extendable shallow pool that shoots out the back.

Three Dimensional Wrist Communicator

Three Dimensional Wrist Communicator

It’s that time again. It’s time for the Mac. The dude who keeps coming hard with the strangest, wildest, most fantastically cool looking conceptual designs on such a regular basis that I can’t believe he doesn’t already work for a super secret design corporation run by time traveling aliens from outer space. Wait. I’m getting a message from Mac. He can see what I’m typing and is telling me to hush up! Oh jeez! Better just talk about this new design – “Dew”, it’s a conceptual mobile communication device that works in three dimensional projection space.

Pressing Out The Bacteria And Grime

Pressing Out The Bacteria And Grime

Lupe is this innovative iron which can cut down the 3 steps of doing laundry into 1. The 3 steps being: washing, drying and ironing. Swipe it over that blob of dirt on your favorite Tee, and watch it dry-clean, sanitize and iron it at, all at once. Am I being to futuristic about this? No ways! I think if appliances like this are made available, then Carrie Bradshaw and her single friends will have no issues with doing the dirty laundry!

Time Telling Poles of Doom

Time Telling Poles of Doom

Actually these poles of doom are known as “Attrito” which is Italian for “friction.” Attrito is designed by Shane Roepe to be time bars indeed, each of them sitting parallel to the other, both of them identifying to you that moment in time you look upon them. Each bar has house and minutes (the minutes being listed in increments of 5) laser etched into the enclosure with an LED backlight. As the enclosure slides over the light, the light shows the time as it is then, precisely.

CCTV for Me!

CCTV for Me!

This right here is a project that has directly to do with closed-circuit television, a system also known as CCTV. These sort of cameras are different from, say, broadcast news cameras because CCTV cameras are meant to only transmit to one spot. CCTV cameras are only supposed to be watched by one person, or one group. What this project in this post, “The Observer,” consists of is a personal viewer for everyday citizens allowing them access to any CCTV camera in the country.

House Noise

House Noise

All the world’s my Stage, and bottles, tins and glasses are my actors! Forgive the twist in Shakespeare’s famous quote, but it fits apt for the “Stage Speakers”. Fun and contemporary, place any object like an empty glass bottle or a tin on the “Stage” platform and hook it to your iPod. Enjoy weird sound enhancements and discover music vibrations like never before. Surely not for the Bose-types, so party-poopers stay out of here!

Rolling Up The eBook

Rolling Up The eBook

Love it or hate, eBooks and Readers are here to stay. Hardcore paper-buffs like me find it hard to embrace the sterile, cold feel of glass and metal (or plastic), when all we want to do is curl up with a warm book. However for the sake of evolution, I take it upon me to present to you a concept that could be the future of e-reading; eRoll!

Projections for Autism

Projections for Autism

Choosing to be a teacher for kids and adults on the Autistic spectrum for your profession is a fabulously noble thing to do. It can be frustrating though, for the same reasons being any sort of adventurer, archeologist, or scientist can be frustrating: there are things we just don’t know. More research is being done every day on Autism, and new things are being discovered daily, too! How should we continue to latch on to an understanding of this disorder all night and party every day? Sixthsense!
