There are a bunch of new watch designs that have been posted on the Tokyoflash blog. Most interesting is the one from Tynan Mayhew from Canada. What’s amazing is that this comes from a 14-year old kid!
I would bet at one time or another we have all shocked ourselves from the AC outlets in our homes when were weren’t paying attention unplugging a device or plugging it in. You know how it works, you are distracted and touch the prongs before they are all the way out of the outlet and zap.
Now I was always a big Atari fanboy back in the day, with one of my first computers being an Atari 800, followed later by an Atari 5200. But one of the things Atari was notorious for back in the day was their long list of vaporware and delayware systems.
I once knew a dude that had this strange fetish of farting in a ceramic duck that his mom had on the shelf. I once saw him fart in the duck, then turn around and light the fart lingering in the duck so I know you can burn a stinky groupie.
My office is probably drawing more power from the wall outlet than some homes do altogether. I have all manner of gadgets, multiple computers, and other devices plugged into the walls. I long ago ran out of outlets in the office and simply daisy chain new surge protectors when I need to plug something in.
Ordinary wheelchairs require considerable effort from the person on them in order to move, unless of course someone pushes the wheelchair. However, in Japan (and probably other countries as well), some care facilities don’t have enough staff to accommodate the wheelchair-bound.
Anyone who has been to a family gathering in the last 20 years has probably had their photo taken with one of those old school Polaroid instant cameras. You know the type that spits the photo out the front and you can watch it develop.
Created by designer Igor Chak, this concept for a Space Invaders couch looks really awesome.
But its squared-off lines look like they’d really hurt our asses. Still, I dig the way it looks, and only wish it were white instead of black – in keeping with the original game colors.
I was using my iPhone the other day and thought that it was just too thin and svelte to be of any real use. What I want is a case that makes it so fat and bulky that the brick phone my dad had in 1990 would make fun of its weight problem.
A new case concept has surfaced called the Arkhippo and it makes the iPhone fat like a hippo with none of the underwater capability and vicious biting attacks of a real hippo.
Similar to the HoloAD trapezoidal display that we saw at CES, Aircord Labs’ N-3D uses a specially-coated transparent glass pyramid to give the viewer the illusion of a 3D display. An iPad placed on top of the pyramid projects three separate images, and each image is reflected in varying intensities on each of the three exposed sides of the pyramid, so that when you go around and look at the other sides, it’s like you’re viewing the other sides of the object being displayed as well.
As shown in the picture above, the N-3D can also produce images that change in response to sound.
Designed by Fabian Nehne and Martin Meier, the RGB Light is, as Szymon Blaszczyk said, a great gift for Photoshop geeks. Unfortunately I don’t think it’s for sale.
The point, of course, is teaching the physics of the additive color model.
Shortlisted at the 2010 Australian International Design Awards, you can probably guess the special feature of the LG Time Machine Plasma TV concept. It can record TV shows – even while you’re watching something else – and pause and rewind live TV.
All-in-one PCs look nice and simple to set up, but they don’t appeal to hardcore computer users because these people know that it’s the insides that count, and PCs with slim form factors generally don’t have top of the line CPUs and GPUs because of the lack of airflow inside their cramped spaces.
Pranav Mistry loves creating new ways of using and interacting with computers – he was the one who created SixthSense, a portable interface which projects interactive images, not only intuitive and practical but cool as hell to use.
