Niels van Hoof’s Feno laptop concept looks pretty sweet, since it looks like it’s half the size of a MacBook Air, but has got the same size screen as the MacBook Pro 17, thanks to a flexible OLED display.
Did you know that a Weighted Companion Cube smells like green apples? No, me neither. But apparently they do. At least if your Companion Cube is made from soap like this one. It also comes in Mountain Dew scent, whatever that smells like.
The Crovel is an awesome looking survival tool and I really want one even though I have no need for a short spade to dig with. This thing may well be the tool best suited for a life on the run from zombie hoards ever invented.
I have talked about a bunch of different new bike security designs and whatnots that have landed recently, my favorite being the bank vault. Another new bike security concept has landed today, and it is designed so that you have a bike lock with you everywhere you go without having to wrap around or lock around your bike when you are riding.
Well, now you can show everyone who thought that the iPad 2 wasn’t pocketable that yes, it can fit in your pants. However it does look quite uncomfortable though. Would you like to carry your iPad 2 around this way?
We can only upgrade the software on our smartphones, but what if we could also do the same for its hardware components, just like with its big brother, the PC? That’s the idea behind the Revive Smartphone.
Here’s a product that could only be designed by the creative minds at Art Lebedev. Like its namesake Windows command, the Ctrl+O will help you pop open bottles in real life. This can easily lead to an entire suite of Windows command products.
I am truly humbled by the amazing things that people manage to do with LEGO bricks these days. Sure, there are way more shapes available than the simple squares, rectangles and green baseplates of my childhood, but it’s still impressive what can be done with these playthings.
I love Kickstarter. It’s a great place for new and innovative ideas to get off the ground when they might have never made it in conventional start-ups. I’m not quite sure this is one of those great ideas, but it sure made me chuckle – and for that, it deserves a post.
If you look at the source of most of the weird gadgets and inventions that surface, I bet that a ample number of them will hail from Japan. Engineers and designers in Japan come up with some really kooky ideas.
Last week I wrote about the cool TiGr bike lock that I figured would keep your bike safe from just about anything. If you looked at that lock and thought, “That’s not secure enough for my bike,” I have found the place you want to live.
While I think that quadrocopters are cool, they tend to be big devices. That’s why I like this tiny quadrocopter, which only weighs 20 grams. It’s basically a PCB with some rotors on it, which is why it is so light.
Master modder Ben Heck has been wowing us for almost five years now with his portable console mods, many of which are laptop versions of the Xbox 360. While his designs are great both in terms of form and function, most of them are either one-offs or quite expensive.
Our WiFi connection at home is largely confined to the indoors, and it doesn’t even reach all the corners of the house. So imagine my surprise when I read about a new technology that can send WiFi signals up to a mile away, and possibly even beyond.
