Pepper Mouth Punishes You for All Those F-Bombs You Drop Online

Pepper Mouth Punishes You for All Those F-Bombs You Drop Online
The number of just plain stupid gadgets that you can buy and connect to your USB port is bewildering. The new Pepper Mouth concept gadget is one of the dumbest I have seen though. It assumes we want to stop calling the idiots we talk to on IM or in chat session’s names and cursing at them.

E-Rope Charges Batteries as You Jump

E-Rope Charges Batteries as You Jump
The coaches that were at my elementary school were a special breed of sadists. They used to line up a bunch of first graders, hand us super long jump ropes, then stood back as we tried to jump, got tangled, fell down, and were beat with the ropes of our peers as they flopped around.

Divetek is the Sweetest Water Floaty Thingy Ever

Divetek is the Sweetest Water Floaty Thingy Ever
Summer is here in Texas and it’s so hot already that ol’ Beelzebub himself won’t come to these parts until late in October. With it being so hot, you can count on folks making it to the lake or down to the coast.

Quadrotor Drone Would be a Great Circus Performer. or Relentless Hunter.

Quadrotor Drone Would be a Great Circus Performer. or Relentless Hunter.
The University of Pennsylvania’s autonomous quadrotor helicopter reminds me of a dog. It’s just waiting to be unleashed, to do tricks, to zip from one place to another. It can do backflips, even triple backflips, pass through narrow spaces without breaking a sweat, and can even be upgraded with Velcro.

Trash Me Recyclable Lamps: Made Not to Last

Trash Me Recyclable Lamps: Made Not to Last
American designer Victor Vetterlein‘s Trash Me lamps are made to be transient, but useful and Earth-friendly. Each lamp is made from nothing but four egg cartons, water, and some aluminum screws.

Phone Manual Concepts Answer Non-Techies’ Calls for Help

Phone Manual Concepts Answer Non-Techies’ Calls for Help
The telephone has come a long way ever since Thomas Edison invented Alexander Graham Bell, who in turn got the idea after a pack of chocolates in his back pocket was melted by microwaves. Wait, wrong story.

LG Flutter Concept Phone: in the Future, There Will be No Such Thing as Convenience

LG Flutter Concept Phone: in the Future, There Will be No Such Thing as Convenience
LG’s recently concluded Design the Future contest required contestants to draw up “the future of mobile communication.”  Dua Xiong’s entry, the Flutter,nisn’t the winning design. It still won something though – the Prop Master’s Choice Award, which is supposedly given to “cutting-edge design.”  I guess by cutting edge they mean “awkward”.

Stethoscope Headphones: Doctor, My Ears…

Stethoscope Headphones: Doctor, My Ears…
Years ago, before I was a full time geek I had a real job of the sort you have to go to college for. It was boring, I hated it, and I was glad to find a job I actually liked.

Mechanical 7-Segment Watch Concept Mashes Up Analog and Digital Worlds

Mechanical 7-Segment Watch Concept Mashes Up Analog and Digital Worlds
I just love the design of Carl Allen’s wristwatch concept, which provides a display that looks like a digital 7-segment display, but is actually mechanical. From a distance, the displays look like LED or LCDs, but a mechanical system actually would move tiny segmented panels under the surface of the watch, creating that illusion.

Asus Plans Netbook With Slot-in Mobile Phone, Gives New Meaning to ‘Phonebook’

Asus Plans Netbook With Slot-in Mobile Phone, Gives New Meaning to ‘Phonebook’
After what I imagine must have been a booze-riddled, yet awesome brainstorming session, the folks at ASUS came up with the idea of a netbook with a slot for a specially-made mobile phone, giving users “an easy way to use the same SIM card and data account for both a phone and a portable computer.” Amazingly enough, the phone already exists – it’s made by a company called Modu, and their “ecosystem” already revolves around that gimmick, a phone that slots into different cases and devices.

Touchscreen Knob Concept is Turning a Lot of Heads

Touchscreen Knob Concept is Turning a Lot of Heads
In general, devices with touchscreens are intuitive, but not always convenient. Sometimes there’s just no substitute for an actual physical interface. For example, the possible motions for rotation on a touchscreen are awkward, whereas if you had a knob you could easily perform rotation.

Optical Illusion Shelves Would Make Escher Proud

Optical Illusion Shelves Would Make Escher Proud
Let’s face it, we all need shelves to store one sort of junk or another. I have shelves all over the place, mostly to hold all the Dr. Pepper cans I don’t want to get up and throw away.

iWatch Wristwatch Concept: Apple, Make This Now.

iWatch Wristwatch Concept: Apple, Make This Now.
Now that you’ve got an iMac, an iPhone and an iPad, you need yet another Apple wonder-gadget, don’t you? While this concept design for a timepiece isn’t actually from Apple, it’s cool enough that it could be.

Electrolux Shine Washing Machine Concepts: More Fashionable Than Your Clothes

Electrolux Shine Washing Machine Concepts: More Fashionable Than Your Clothes
Today’s washing machines are anything but stylish. If you ask me they look like burly, angry computers. But if Electrolux has its way, we’ll soon be able to say the words “washing machine” and “sexy” in the same sentence.

Perfect Weapon for the Office Apocalypse Shoots Post-It Notes

Perfect Weapon for the Office Apocalypse Shoots Post-It Notes
I have had a couple bosses in my day that I would have totally lit up at the site of this Post-it gun. Thankfully, if my boss is a jerk today, I only have myself to blame since I work from home.

News Concept Motor Add-on Turbocharges Wheelchairs

News Concept Motor Add-on Turbocharges Wheelchairs
Motorized wheelchairs, while very practical, are very expensive as well. Designer Ju Hyun Lee created the NEWS concept to reap the benefits of a motorized wheelchair without the prohibitive costs. The motorized add-on would attach to conventional wheelchairs, fusing man and machine, Power Xtreme!
