The Crunchpad Project is Dead… or is It?

The Crunchpad Project is Dead… or is It?
Unless something awesome happens, this will be our first and last post about the CrunchPad, TechCrunch head Michael Arrington’s nearly-there web tablet. Yesterday, Arrington announced on TechCrunch that the project “self destructed over nothing more than greed, jealousy and miscommunication.” Goddammit.

USB Sofas: the Best Flash Drive Ever Made

USB Sofas: the Best Flash Drive Ever Made
In this case, the memory is embedded inside the sofa, but isn’t that the case with almost all of the other wacky flash drives on the market? I don’t know about you but I’d rather have my flash drive inside a sofa instead of a plastic UFO or Statue of Liberty or burger or credit card or T-Rex or bento box or kunai.

Gaon Street Light/Wastebasket Turns Trash Into Flash

Gaon Street Light/Wastebasket Turns Trash Into Flash
Designed by Haneum Lee, the Gaon street light/wastebasket concept composts biodegradable waste and uses the methane by-product to power its light, saving energy and eliminating waste while lighting the streets. It’s a bright idea – or is it?

Os Calculators: I Bet the Mac Version Will be Twice as Expensive as the Windows One

Os Calculators: I Bet the Mac Version Will be Twice as Expensive as the Windows One
Call it a case of life imitating software: a designer at Mintpass recently showed off a couple of designs for calculators that look exactly like the calculator apps in Windows and in OS X. The Mac version has a metal case and a 2-liner LCD screen like its software counterpart, while the Windows calculator sports the classic XP color scheme, and even has menu headers.

Pocket Light Portable Folding Light Bulb is a Really Bright Idea

Pocket Light Portable Folding Light Bulb is a Really Bright Idea
Ryan Harc says that his Pocket Light concept will let us share “the blissful moments with your beloved. Draw out a little light which can be the best conveyor of your feeling.” Wink wink. I wish this was a real product; it’s just so nice to look at.

Forget P2p, Here’S B2b: Brain-to-Brain Communication

Forget P2p, Here’S B2b: Brain-to-Brain Communication
We can now add telepathy to the list of things that’s possible thanks to the Internet. Researchers at the University of Southampton in the UK have demonstrated that it is possible to transmit thoughts from one person’s brain to another person’s brain using nothing but pieces of tape, a couple of EEG amplifiers, some special software, LEDs, and the Internet.

Toys for Big Boys: iPhone Remote Controls Honda Civic, Blackberry Remote Controls F1 Car

Toys for Big Boys: iPhone Remote Controls Honda Civic, Blackberry Remote Controls F1 Car
Man, these are smartphones indeed. The wise – and probably bored – folks at the University of Berlin made a one-of-a-kind iPhone app which they called iDriver, which allows them to control a Honda Civic via Wi-Fi.

10/Gui User Interface Concept Ponders How Future Slackers Will Kill Time on the Computer

10/Gui User Interface Concept Ponders How Future Slackers Will Kill Time on the Computer
Those of us who spend more time in front of our computers instead of other humans know that the current keyboard and mouse method of interaction with our magic boxes are far from perfect. I for one, want a half-sphere, multitouch surface that lets me move stuff onscreen with my right hand (my mouse hand) resting on it.

LEGO Control Concept: Why Did It Take So Long to Come Up With This?

LEGO Control Concept: Why Did It Take So Long to Come Up With This?
Of all of the universal remotes out there, this LEGO-brick-inspired concept design is my new favorite.

Alessi Laser Shot Watch Projects Time on Your Wrist, Won’T Burn Holes in Your Skin

Alessi Laser Shot Watch Projects Time on Your Wrist, Won’T Burn Holes in Your Skin
This offbeat watch design is merely a concept at this point, but I actually kind of like the idea. The Alessi Laser Shot watch is supposed to project the current time on your wrist using (frickin’) laser beams.

Ora Concept Watch: Like a Tape Measure Went Crazy on Your Wrist

Ora Concept Watch: Like a Tape Measure Went Crazy on Your Wrist
This insane-looking contraption isn’t some sort of strange measuring device. Nope, what you’re looking at is a design for one of the most unusual looking watches to hit the pages of Technabob in a long while.

Rickey Taylor: Daydreamer, Genius, or Does He Just have Too Much Free Time?

Rickey Taylor: Daydreamer, Genius, or Does He Just have Too Much Free Time?
Here’s an interesting blog I fished out of Dark Roasted Blend‘s Link Latte: Rickey Taylor’s Sharpened Pencil, where said Mr. Taylor, a CADD designer/drafter, posts his doodles about his ideas for inventions. So is he a modern day Da Vinci, a source of inspiration, or just a dude with a surplus of paper, pencils and time?

Energy Aware Clock Tells Time, Maps Energy Use, and Looks Good Doing It

Energy Aware Clock Tells Time, Maps Energy Use, and Looks Good Doing It
I won’t lie to you, gentle readers. I don’t count monitoring power consumption among my various geeky interests. Chalk it up to the arrogance of youth. Or perhaps it’s because I’m not yet a homeowner, so I don’t fret about such things.

Coffin-Shaped Mousetrap Lets You Show Respect for the Animal Whose Neck You Just Broke

Coffin-Shaped Mousetrap Lets You Show Respect for the Animal Whose Neck You Just Broke
I’m not sure if PETA would approve of Sarah Dery’s mousetrap design. On one hand, it provides captured mice with a decent resting place, and it makes it easy for you to toss them out the window while shrieking give them a proper burial.

Samsung Braille Phone Packs a More Literal Touchscreen

Samsung Braille Phone Packs a More Literal Touchscreen
Touchscreens these days mostly allow us to use our fingers like a mouse cursor – point, click, slide etc. Designer Seonkeun Park wants to make a phone for the blind, with a screen and keypad that can form Braille symbols.

Big Brother PS3 May be Watching You in the Future

Big Brother PS3 May be Watching You in the Future
At this point, I’m pretty sure that everything in the damn world is about to be patented as a possible game control system. Right now, someone is filing a patent for a game controller modeled after their grandmother’s little finger.
