I don’t know where Fast Co. Design got this statistic, but apparently “only 10% of regular headphone consumers” know about the audio company Sennheiser.

Trash Amps: for the Treehugging Music Lover

+-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? Would that…

Origaudio Foldable Speakers: Lean and Green Lightweight Sounds

Origaudio Foldable Speakers: Lean and Green Lightweight Sounds
OrigAudio (as in “origami + audio”) speakers are perfect for trips to the beach, or for whenever you just want to share music without much hassle. Let’s face it, a couple of 3.15″ 1-watt speakers won’t satisfy audiophiles and they’re definitely not good enough for parties, but the fact that…

This Cellphone is a Coke Addict

This Cellphone is a Coke Addict
…but not the coke that Scarface likes; this cellphone runs on Coca-Cola. Actually it doesn’t just do Coke, it also gets pumped up on other sugary fluids.

Instead of fire, or even sparks, the Looftlighter uses hot air – hot as in more than 1000°F – to light things up. The Looftlighter is named after its inventor, Richard Lighter. No wait: his real name is Richard Looft, a (former?) theater director who got tired of having his…

Enfren Free Style LED Lamp is Also Fun to Play With
Enfren’s new environment-frenly friendly lamp isn’t called a “free style lamp” for nothing. The lamp not only has a bendy neck that allows users to adjust the height or angle of the light, the LEDs are separated into five disks that resemble contact lens cases. This arrangement allows for further…

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? I like how one simple gadget can help solve a couple of…
