I am a big sci-fi fan and like to read sci-fi and watch sci-fi flicks. Any fan of sci-fi or cool interior design will really appreciate these sweet lamps that Jason Dietz has built and will be showing off at the Maker Faire this month.
Designed by Goodmorning Technology for Milan-based lighting store Luceplan, the Archetype lamp combines the classic shape of a traditional lamp shade with modern LED technology, resulting in a device that is as familiar and approachable as the lamps we’re used to, but is far more efficient and longer-lasting.
I have seen a bunch of weird speakers in the home theater world before. Typically, the really weird speakers also carry a very high price tag. I guess the makers figure they are more like sculpture than plain old speakers are.
I always wondered why they called it an airplane hangar. This clever wall hook system is definitely a clever play on the airplane hang(e)r concept.
Created by Kolja Clemens of Germany’s MOM, these cool aluminum airplanes are just the right size and shape for hanging up your leather bomber jacket or flak jacket.
At first glance, this might look like any other minimal modern table lamp, but on closer examination, this unique lighting fixture cuts the cord and can go anywhere you go.
Designed by Rob Slewe of BLOOM, the Battery portable lamp has a built in battery pack that provides enough juice to power a high efficiency 11-watt fluorescent bulb.
This home theater system transforms from a display case to a full-on entertainment center. That’s cool, but don’t get your hopes up. It’s way too expensive. Plus, it’s way too ugly.
This home theater system is by Boxetti and it’s like having a Transformer in your house.
Sick of having your fireplace stuck in the same room all the time? Well look no further, because this is the rolling fireplace that will set your fire free.
Who doesn’t love fireplaces? Heck, even if it’s pretty warm, a roaring fire always does some good.
That's is all I need now - furniture that tells me how I'm feeling. Yep, that's exactly what this glowing chair is all about - detecting your mood, and adjusting its color to match.
Created by UK designers Aether & Hemera, the Mood Chair is like a Mood Ring for your ass...
If there’s one thing us geeks know how to do is turn the everyday into something fantastically dorky. Our latest invention? LED flowers, trees and shrubs.
This high-tech plantlife does away with such petty annoyances as dirt, water and sunlight, replacing them with an ongoing thirst for electricity.
I swear some of the best stuff we’ve posted here at technabob has originated from someone’s Coroflot portfolio. In this case, it’s Mexican industrial designer Gabriel Cañas’ Tetris Chair, which is so amazingly gaudy that only Willy Wonka could ever hope to love it.
Everyone has surely heard of bookshelf speakers. But have you ever heard of coffee table speakers? Well now you can say you have.
The innovative Table of Sound (ToS) coffee table was created by designers Wout Fierens and Miquell van Meelen of Wondering Boys for a recent competition over on designboom.
It’s extremely rare – if not unheard of – for me to write two posts about the same person in a row. However, while I was researching designer Craigton Berman‘s totally awesome LEGO remote control concept, I came across this lamp over on his website and just had to mention it.
At first glance, this looks like any ordinary old wall clock. But take another look, and you’ll see that there’s nothing ordinary about the way that it works.
You see, the hour markers around the perimeter of designer J.P.Meulendijks‘
The LIT Urban Underglow LED lighting kit is a great way to add a bold splash of color to any room.
