Got an old Luxo Jr. style iMac? Sure, it might be obsolete, but you surely can do something with it besides putting it out in the alley for recycling.
Instead, why not do like this guy did, and turn it into a handy Cylon helmet.
Sure, you can buy a toy lightsaber prop just about anywhere, but if you really want to look the part, you have to go the way that Bradley Lewis did with his gorgeous handmade lightsaber and build your own.
Here’s another new concept watch from those guys over at TokyoFlash. They call it Night Vision and it actually looks pretty good, thanks to the bright green lights on the face of the watch.
This is coupled with a matte body and strap.
Although I love Japanese watches, the one thing that I dislike about a lot of them is to take a few moments to figure out what the heck is exactly going on. The Kisai Traffic watch shows what looks like some random traffic, which is supposed to help you tell the time.
The blue lines indicate hours, orange is five-minute blocks, and green traffic is single minutes.
Even though I do bike at night, the idea of bike safety is relative. No matter how visible you are, if you do a bonehead maneuver, you’ve got no one to blame but yourself. However, if you tend to ride around cars a lot, then these LED tires will definitely make you more visible at night.
These CYGLO glowing bike tires contain LEDs that are embedded into the treads or sidewalls of the tire.
I was buzzing about over on the Star Wars Shop when I came across these nifty new wall lights, perfect for any Star Wars themed room.
Each wall-mountable light measures 27-inches tall, and has LEDs inside its lightsaber blade which can produce seven colorful effects.
While many of the unusual electronic watches coming out of Asia feature complex displays that border on insane (you hear us Tokyoflash?), this LED watch is about as simple as we can imagine.
The ABYSS watch has no hands.
Music pattern-matching games like Guitar Hero owe a lot to the early electronic games of the 1970s like Simon and Merlin. Now Mattel is back with a brand new music game which feels like a modern homage to the classics.
Instead of pushing buttons like the old games, LOOPZ uses a set of infrared beam sensors to detect when you place your hand through four semi-circular rings.
If you’re looking for a cool visual accent for your office, I can’t think of anything better than this mesmerizing LED light cube from the guys at Hi-Tec Art.
The clear acrylic LED cube features 64 RGB LEDs, wired together into a 4x4x4 grid, connected to a controller circuit.
Sony just introduced a video demonstrating this amazing new 360-degree display technology that’s something you might find in a James Cameron movie.
The new autostereoscopic display projects 360 individual slices of an image onto an array of special LEDs, providing a volumetric display you can walk around and view from any angle – without glasses.
While cutting holes in the side and installing interior lighting in the original Xbox 360 has become pretty much the casemodding norm these days, it took a little while for the first original 360 to get modded in this way.
Over the years I have reviewed a couple of the lasers from Wicked Lasers and there aren’t things that you would call laser pointers, unless you like the ability to burn those who talk during your presentation.
LED-powered signs have rapidly become omnipresent in big cities. Now you can even have one inside your house. It’s called Lucia and was created and designed by Tangible Interaction.
Lucia is a sound reactive LED matrix, which consists of a 112×20 pixel RGB LED light box that can display a variety of shapes and colors, depending on the sounds it detects.
The wonders of Arduino never cease. This time Instructables member Leah Buechley used a Lilypad Arduino microcontroller board to make a jacket with turn signal LEDs, which can be toggled using switches on each of the jacket’s wrists.
It’s true that if you have though about putting LEDs on your bike, it’s nothing new. However, this new tech from Japan will really light your bike up like none other in the neighborhood.
It’s called the Anipov LED system and it’s made by Japan’s Suns & Moon Laboratory.
