Mechanical 7-Segment Watch Concept Mashes Up Analog and Digital Worlds

Pocket Synths: Paperkraftwerk
Artist Dan McPharlin makes incredibly detailed miniature synths and other electronic instruments out of cardboard: Wow. There are so many neat touches in that picture alone: the tiny monitor and the wires on the lower left synth, the wood-like paint on the upper right synth… Maybe someone can embed a chip or something and make these things actually play tiny bleeps and bloops!

Tea Light Lets You Hold Teatime Anytime

Tea Light Lets You Hold Teatime Anytime
Designed by Jan Bergstein, “TEELICHT” is a lamp that looks like an upside-down cup, with a light switch made to look like a teabag tag. I hope no one’s going to protest when I say that this is a tealightful idea.

Video Game Console Buildings Will Never Actually Exist. Boo.

Mathmos Blob and Flow “Light Pets” have Glowing Eyes
The latest lighting creation from the UK house of Mathmos is definitely unusual. Designed to look like a couple of globby alien heads, Blob and Flow are what Mathmos calls “touch-sensitive light pets.” I just call them “weird, but cool.” Just plug the shiny zinc alloy duo into your USB port or outlet, and their glowing eyeballs come to life.
