Piggy Bank Gets a Modern Twist

Piggy Bank Gets a Modern Twist
This concept piggy bank is more like a combination of an ATM and a Tamagotchi. In order to keep it happy, you have to feed it your credit card. No money, and it gets sad. Designed by Wang Chao, Maggie Kuo, and Jordi Parra, the electronic piggy bank concept has an iPhone for its screen that displays the emotions of the piggy bank, while an Arduino detects and manages the money and transmits status back to a computer via Bluetooth, which in turn notifies the iPhone over WiFi.

+-Water Meter Concept Converts Water Consumption Into Actual Cost: Good Intention, Flawed Execution
Water meters usually display only the volume of water that has been consumed, and even then it’s not presented in an easily understandable format. What if you had a device in your house that also showed the equivalent cost of the water that you’re using in real time?

Haptica Braille Watch Tells Time for the Visually Impaired
I can’t recall ever writing about a watch that wasn’t designed for those of us that can see normally. We look at lots of watches here, and no matter the price or how complex they are to read, the vast majority of them are designed for the sighted.

Video game emulators have long been available for both iOS and Android phones, provided you’re willing to jailbreak your device. There are NES, SNES and even PlayStation emulators. However, this is the first time that I’ve seen a Nintendo DS emulator for smartphones.

Lightning LED Watch Would Be Better If It Used Actual Flames

Lightning LED Watch Would Be Better If It Used Actual Flames

Klang Ultrasonic Speakers Beam Sound Right Where You Want It

Klang Ultrasonic Speakers Beam Sound Right Where You Want It
It gets really annoying when someone at my house is playing music or something on the PC in the office. You can hear the sound in the living room just as easily as the office.

Hublot Key of Time Watch Looks Perfect for Batman
Hublot‘s new concept watch, La clé du temps, (The Key of Time), hasn’t yet been made, but it looks like something that would go great with the Batsuit. It’s going to be a limited edition from the Hublot Confrerie Line, so my guess is that it will probably be very expensive.

Double U USB Plug Works in Any Direction

Double U USB Plug Works in Any Direction
Am I the only one who has visions of the dude that invented the USB plug wringing his hands like Mr. Burns and cackling, “This will really piss them off! Muhahahahahah!” What sort of sadistic SOB would design a plug with no indication on the outside which way is up, but will fit into the USB port in one way?
