Tetris Sugar Cubes: Level Up Your Tea!
It turns out there’s more than one way to get rid of those pesky Tetris blocks. Sure, you can wait for them to neatly stack into a row so they vanish, or…

Razer Switchblade is an Awesome Portable Gaming Concept

Razer Switchblade is an Awesome Portable Gaming Concept
I am a big fan of Razer gaming gear for the computer going way back. The last thing I would have expected to see from Razer at CES was a concept for gaming that is not a controller, but rather a full portable PC for mobile gaming.

Thimble Concept Braille-ifies Digital and Analog Text

Thimble Concept Braille-ifies Digital and Analog Text
Mobile Internet is great – you can check your email, read the news, reserve seats at restaurants, and even check for parking spots, all from your smartphone. Not that I enjoy any of that fantastic futuristic stuff here where I live, but it’s nice to know that theoretically, I could.

Cardboard Polaroid Camera Concept: 2 Pics, 1 Shot

Cardboard Polaroid Camera Concept: 2 Pics, 1 Shot
I’m no hardware expert, but for the longest time I’ve been wondering why instant cameras are not commonplace nowadays despite Polaroid’s pioneering technology decades ago. Sure, even our phones can store tons of pics, but nothing beats sharing an actual photo.

LaCie Float Concept External HDD Doubles as a Trackpad
I think that all computer users need an external HDD to back their data up to. If you are like me and haven’t taken a picture on film in years, you probably have a drive inside your computer full of pics that you can’t replace if they get lost in a crash.

Domino Clock Just Makes Time Harder To Read

Domino Clock Just Makes Time Harder To Read
Clocks. Such simple devices, yet so many people have to make them so complicated. Yes, I know that the innards of a clock can be rather complicated, but I’m more referring to the parts that we see.

I-Green Thingy Charges Gadgets While You Ride a Bike

I-Green Thingy Charges Gadgets While You Ride a Bike
This concept device reminds me of that episode of The Simpsons where Bart tries to use the headlight dynamo to get some light when riding his bike at night, but the thing makes the bike so hard to pedal he can hardly move.

Artificial Tentacle Arm Concept: Prosthentacle

Artificial Tentacle Arm Concept: Prosthentacle
You’d think that people who lost their arms would want a prosthetic that looked and worked much like real arms and hands do. However, University of Washington graduate Kaylene Kau found out that people with prosthetic arms tended to use their remaining flesh and bones hand as the dominant functioning hand, with the prosthetic arm used as a support.

Tableau: Magic Messenger Drawer

Tableau: Magic Messenger Drawer
From the same guy that cooked up the Proverbial Wallets comes a magical drawer that can transport messages to and from the Internet. John Kestner calls his creation the Tableau, and like the Proverbial Wallets, it adds a physical factor to digital processes.

Proverbial Wallet Gets Harder to Open as You Run Out of Green

Proverbial Wallet Gets Harder to Open as You Run Out of Green
I found out the hard way in college that you could use your debit card to get money even if you are out of cash. Most banks will let you go over what you have in the account in an effort to “help you” and gather overdraft fees at the same time.

Skinny Player Gives New Meaning to Band Aids

Skinny Player Gives New Meaning to Band Aids
Designers Chih-Wei Wang and Shou-Hsi Fu think that in the future, music albums could be packaged not just in a compact medium, but one that integrates a music player as well. Their concept device Skinny Player is a lot simpler and thinner than the iPod Shuffle, incorporating storage, a battery, a play/stop button and speakers into a Band-Aid-like form factor.

5-to-9 Clock Makes a Statement, Barely Tells Time

5-to-9 Clock Makes a Statement, Barely Tells Time
If there’s one thing I like about having irregular jobs, it’s not having to do the 9-to-5 grind every day. Granted, I’ve had jobs that required I work these hours, and I generally hated it. Early to bed and early to rise might make a man healthy, wealthy and wise, but it also makes him grumpy.

Nokia E-Cu Concept Phone Charges by Converting Heat to Electricity, Turns Feverish People Into Batteries

Nokia E-Cu Concept Phone Charges by Converting Heat to Electricity, Turns Feverish People Into Batteries
Being sick sucks. I’ve been trying to get rid of this fever for almost a week now, so I was quite intrigued by Patrick Hyland’s concept cellphone. He calls it the Nokia E-Cu. While its name makes no sense – E stands for environment, and Cu, as you are no doubt aware, is the chemical symbol for copper – its main feature is very practical.

Recyclable Laptop Disassembles Easily: Environment- and User-Friendly

Recyclable Laptop Disassembles Easily: Environment- and User-Friendly
Laptops sacrifice a lot for their portability – they’re nowhere near as upgradable as most desktop computers, and they’re not that easy to tinker with as well.
