Luna Personal Robot Can Walk the Dog

Luna Personal Robot Can Walk the Dog
It’s hard to be a geek and not like robots. They have a lot of promise to free us from the mundane tasks that no one really wants to do. Things like mowing the yard, vacuuming, and sweeping.

Capture Camera Clip: Holster for Your Shooter

Capture Camera Clip: Holster for Your Shooter
Peter Dering was looking for a secure and convenient way to carry his SLR camera. A neck strap is convenient and lets him take a shot quickly, but it also increases the risk of damaging the camera while it’s dangling and swinging.

Spinovo Concept: Wearable Back Pain Reliever

Raitosho Watch Tells Time with LED Light Beams
I always enjoy checking out the TokyoFlash design blog for new modern watch concepts. Sure, many of them are impractical, some of them are hard to read, but for the most part, they look pretty cool, like this concept design called Raitosho.

The Fukushima Plate Makes Sure Your Food Ain’t Garnished With A Side Of Radiation
The nuclear crisis that followed after the earthquake and tsunami rocked Japan caused a lot of people to panic.

Project iKinect Co-op Game Uses Kinect and iPhone as Controllers
If you thought the PS3 Kinect hack was absurd, then this Kinect hack from Rockmoon, a mobile game development company based in Singapore, will be no less ridiculous – a two-player video game where one player plays using a Kinect while the other player uses an iPhone as a controller.

iOS 5 Notifications App Concept: Apple, Just Do Something About This Already
The notifications scheme on the iPhone and other iOS devices is one of the longest-standing, yet unaddressed complaints that users have. The current system is messy, distracting and obtrusive, which is ironic because Apple is all about designing hardware that gets out of the way.

Puppy Robotic Vacuum: Hoover! Come Here, Boy!
Anything that can get my kids interested in cleaning up around the house is good by me. Both of my kids like toys that move around and animals, so this new concept vacuum cleaner by designer Hyun-Seok Kim is perfect for my home.

Acoustic Alarm Concept Gently Plucks You Out of Bed

Acoustic Alarm Concept Gently Plucks You Out of Bed
Many of the alarm clocks we’ve featured have creative or sometimes plain cruel ways of forcing people out of bed. They may be effective at waking you up, but they’re also bound to leave you pissed off, which is obviously not a great way to start the day.
