I just love the industrial design of this compact portable sound dock for the iPod. The einö Portable Speaker System is small enough to fit in your purse or backpack, so it’s the perfect companion for traveling with your media player.
These tipsy egg-shaped speakers let you wobble them like a Weeble while you listen to your tunes.
Unlike real eggs (and those colorful Weebles), these only come in black and red, and they don’t crack open to produce omelets.
Perfect for those of you who like a little geek with your chic (or is that the other way around?), this quirky QWERTY keyboard design wallet helps you keep all your personal items in order.
The wallet offers plentiful storage for credit cards, cash, spare change and even a checkbook, but no matter how hard you press on the keys, it still won’t control your computer (although it really should.)
The new ITIS desk lamp from Artemide provides dramatic LED illumination in a slick modern package. Thanks to its amazingly flexible adjustable design, the fixture easily takes on a variety of different looks.
Designer Naoto Fukasawa actually took home the coveted Red Dot Design Award for his UFO-like lamp design, which provides both direct and diffused illumination from a low-energy (5 watt) LED light source.
This oversize wristwatch conceals a little secret beneath its flip-top. Just pop it open, and you’ll reveal a fully-functional multimedia mobile phone inside.
Under the hood of the U200i mobile phone wristwatch dwells a quad-band (unlocked) GSM phone, complete with a 1.3MP digital camera, Bluetooth connectivity, and full media player capabilities.
This has got to be one of the most amazing clock designs I’ve ever seen. At first glance, the display looks like a bunch of random matchsticks, but over time, they gradually transform into words that tell the time.
Looks like our favorite god of mods is at it again. This time, Ben Heck has really outdone himself with this amazing feat of engineering — cramming an entire Playstation 3 into a laptop.
The portable PS3 features a slick, glossy black case, and a nice big 17-inch LCD screen running at 720p resolution.
A while back, I showed you guys a pretty cool looking OLED watch from the fashion house of Diesel. That model was especially difficult to come by, and featured a tiny little monochrome blue OLED screen .
Here’s a clock for people who are perpetually tardy, and want to stay that way. All of the digits on the dial of this wall clock have fallen off of the face, causing a major numeric pile-up at the bottom.
This cool fabric curtain may look like a tree from afar, but once you’re up close, you’ll see that it’s made of tens of thousands of tiny ASCII characters.
Created by Dutch designer Nienke Sybrandy, the huge (18′ x 11′) curtain panel was digitally printed with dot matrix characters to give the impression of intricate tree branches from a distance.
This modern backpack is sure to draw attention as you walk down the street — especially if you’ve got the volume cranked up. You see those big black patches? They’re loudspeakers.
Created by industrial design student Joonas Saaranen, the Reppo II backpack features a built in pair of full-range speakers and an amplifier, so you can kick out the jams as you walk down the street.
It’s been a while since I brought you guys any cool new watches. It’s not for lack of trying, but there just hasn’t been much that’s hit my desk that really caught my eye. So I was pleased when I came across these, the latest analog timepiece from the guys over at Nixon.
It’s been a while since I’ve seen speakers that looked quite this strange. Designed to be your “little dead desktop buddy”, they look like something that your neighborhood dominatrix might have sitting next to her computer.
Firmly parked at the intersection of Geek Street and Park Avenue, Gucci has entered the digital age with these modern watches which let your friends know that you’ve truly arrived (or that you’re just independently wealthy).
These minimal analog watches have a little secret. Using some clever optical trickery, the current hour gradually appears and disappears from view.
You see, that hour hand isn’t really a hand at all. It’s actually a cutout in a solid round disc covering the face of the watch.
Whether you’re outfitting your media room with a Grauman’s Chinese Theater motif, or you just like scaly reptilians, these dragon speakers are sure to make a dramatic statement in your home.
Designed by UK studio Axelsson Design, these awesome dragon speakers look like something that belong in the villain’s lair in a John Woo film.
