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.

Weighted Companion Cube Soap Keeps You Company in the Bathroom
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.

Crovel: If You Only Get One Tool to Fend Off a Zombie Invasion
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.

Bike-Lock Handlebars Foil Crooks (And Maybe You)
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.

My What Big Pockets You Have…
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.

Ctrl+O Bottle Opener Leaves Mac Users Green With Envy
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.

A guy going by the name CBZ decided promptly when he got himself a Nintendo 3DS last week that the first thing he needed to do was to run out and get himself an augmented reality tattoo.

District 9 ARC Gun: The LEGO Version

District 9 ARC Gun: The LEGO Version
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.

Yarn Monster Eats Yarn for Dinner, Could Be Sitting at Your Table Soon

Yarn Monster Eats Yarn for Dinner, Could Be Sitting at Your Table Soon
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.

Japanese Lab Invents GROSS Kiss Transmission Device

Japanese Lab Invents GROSS Kiss Transmission Device
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.

Is That a Stylus on Your Nose, or Are You Happy to See Me?
Nothing says “dork” like a long, white stylus on your nose for your smartphone. I think this must be a spoof concept and not something that the designer seriously thinks is a viable product.

Bike Vault: For Bicyclists Who Really Take Bike Theft Seriously
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.

CrazyFlie: Tiny Barebones Quadrocopter Weighs Less than an Ounce
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.

Xbox 360 Slim Laptop: No, It’s Not By Ben Heck. Yes, You Can Buy One.

Xbox 360 Slim Laptop: No, It’s Not By Ben Heck. Yes, You Can Buy One.
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.
