While wearable TVs are things that are usually seen in science-fiction, Dave Forbes decided to make his own 60″ TV in the form of an LED video coat. It looks pretty fascinating, though it could make a good portion of the population queasy looking at all of this motion while somebody is wearing it.
Do you travel a lot? While you could certainly use any of a number of digital tools to keep track of all the locations you’ve visited, it might be sort of cool to have a more physical manifestation of your journeys than just some Google Maps page that only exists in the digital ether of The Cloud.
Ok, I’m the first to say that we’ve featured some difficult to read timepieces here on Technabob over the years, but at least there’s usually some way to explain how to read them. For the first time, here’s one watch that I have absolutely no idea how to tell the time.
I think watches are the most popular accessory there is. First of all, they’re functional. They tell you the time primarily, while some models even display the date, the temperature, what day of the week it is, and so on and so forth.
Tokyoflash just released the Kisai Rogue SR2 watch, an updated version of the Rogue that they had available before. Unlike most of the Tokyoflash range of digital watches, the Kisai Rogue SR2 features an always-on LCD display.
The design of the cufflinks that a man dons tells a lot about his personality. For example, the Bike Cufflinks are obviously intended for bikers and cyclists. The Flash Drive cufflinks are for the nerdier and geekier men who aren’t ashamed to where their geekiness on their sleeves.
Most of the time, landline phones – remember those? – are still useable even when the electricity goes out. Instructables user art.z shows us how we can make good use of that omnipresent (and free!) power source – by creating a flashlight that taps into the phone line.
Jeri Ellsworth wowed a lot of people at the recently held Maker Faire when she turned up wearing something straight out of cartoons: a light bulb over her head that was activated by her brainwaves. Okay so it’s not exactly like the visual metaphor since it doesn’t discriminate between great ideas and things like “I have to pee”.
This giant light-up disco ball is nearly 20 feet in diameter and is comprised of an astounding 10,000 OLED displays. Mitsubishi calls it their OLED Geo-Cosmos globe and it will be introduced at the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation in Tokyo.
Putting on makeup can be a real time consumer for women. In order to save time, some women have even gone to the extreme step of having their makeup tattooed on. I can see where it would be a real time-saver even if changing colors would be a big problem after a tattoo.
Here’s a cool way to add a little extra splash of color to your room without breaking the bank. These compact LED mood lights let you choose from 256 different colors using a clever touch-sensitive color chart on the side.
You simply use the color selector bar like a color slider on your computer, picking the hue you’re looking for with a touch of your finger.
The little lights each have three 1-watt LEDs, and are powered by a built-in USB rechargeable battery.
I am not even remotely surprised that the world’s smallest 3D printer would be created by a team of researchers that hail from a university named after some of the world’s tiniest sausages. A team of geeks at Vienna University of Technology has announced that it has crafted the world’s smallest 3D printer that is about the size of a milk carton.
I understand that changing your light bulbs in the home from the normal incandescent to more efficient CCFL or LED lights can save you a bunch of money. The problem I have always had with LED bulbs is that the color light tends to be weird and the bulbs are just so damn expensive.
I always enjoy checking out the TokyoFlash design blog for new modern watch concepts. Sure, many of them are impractical, some of them are hard to read, but for the most part, they look pretty cool, like this concept design called Raitosho.
I’ve always liked umbrellas, especially nice large ones that you can stash in the trunk of your car. The flimsy folding umbrellas work for certain time, but then they break down. The Lumadot LED Umbrella adds some special tech features to something that almost everybody needs on their umbrella: lights.
