Ah, Japan. Just when I think your gadgets can’t get any weirder, you birth another oddity for our enjoyment. The latest strange creation to pop onto my radar screen is this – a lamp that looks like one of those intravenous drip bags.
I’ve had my fair share of lucid dreams, although most of these turned out to be some pretty bad nightmares where I was running for my life. Most people I know, however, haven’t experienced many lucid dreams.
With the music games out there these days, there are already some high tech ways to learn the guitar. However, most of these don’t let you play with an actual guitar, strings and frets, so it’s not exactly a realistic training experience.
If there’s one thing that the Internet has forced companies to do is to get a little more creative with their marketing. Instead of crappy old TV commercials, vendors are vying for our attention with publicity stunts they hope will go viral online.
I’ve heard about integrating LEDs into clothing, but this is the first time that I’ve seen a snowboarder completely lit up like a Christmas tree. In the short film L.E.D. Surfer, created by filmmaker Jacob Sutton for Nowness, we get to watch Artec pro snowboarder William Hughes going down the French Alps, covered head-to-toe in bright LEDs.
Alarms clocks are a dime a dozen, but this beautiful bedside clock aims to shake things up a bit. Designed and engineered by Paul Sammut, the Nixie Ramos is part of a Kickstarter project featuring two decidedly different versions of the same clock.
If you’re in the market for a cool lamp, and are looking for something different from all the hyper-modern, linear looking LED lamps on the market these days, you might want to check out this unique table lamp from QisDesign.
Yet another excellent watch design has surfaced over on the TokyoFlash Design Blog, and I have to say this is one of my favorites yet. While the V-BL47 has a sort of silly sci-fi backstory, it looks really cool, and is actually easy to read once you know the trick.
Statement shirts, statement earrings, statement necklackes, statement doormats – all sorts of stuff that make a statement are everywhere these days. Statement shoes have long been in fashion as well, but I think I just saw the pair that make the loudest statement ever.
Cathedrals, in themselves, are magnificent sights to behold. Each tile, window, or pillar speaks volumes about its history and how the structure itself came to be. Aside from serving as places of worship for some religions, they’re also where special occasions like baptisms, weddings, and other ceremonies are held.
Looking for a bright flashlight? Well if you find yourself somewhere that you need to light up a very dark or very large space, check out this awesome marvel of modern engineering, the 4Sevens XM18 flashlight.
I’ve mentioned some of the multitouch displays from ideum in the past, but this one is one of the biggest off-the-shelf touchscreen interfaces I’ve seen to date. The just announced MT65 Presenter has a whopping 65-inch screen.
