Eco-Socket: Plug and Pop
I’ve been seeing a lot of electrical socket concepts lately.

Dialug: Twist-to-Set Outlet Timer
Picture this: your alarm goes off late one morning, so you’re scrambling around your apartment with burnt toast in one hand and random work stuff in the other.

Solar Ship: Air Ships Taking To the Skies with the Power of the Sun

InStep Nanopower Shoes Create Electricty While You Walk (and Hopefully Won’t Electrocute You)
There’s something intrinsically logical about harvesting the energy that we create by walking so that we can power up some of the gadgets that we have on our person all the time. These InStep Nanopower shoes will do something like this, and they actually use liquid metal to get the job done.

Alternative Alarm Clock Wakes You by Turning Things on

Alternative Alarm Clock Wakes You by Turning Things on
We like to talk about weird alarm clocks around here, if for no other reason than we think it’s funny that some people actually have clocks rather than just using their smartphones these days. If you are into weird clocks, the Alternative Alarm Clock by designer Ki Hyun Kim is an interesting one.

Piezoelectric Keyboards Could Power Your Laptops by Typing

Switch Plug: Making Plugs Safer, One at a Time
I’m a pretty forgetful person, so the responsibility of unplugging some plugs from the wall outlets at night was given to my sister. I also have this unusual (or typical?) fear of sparks flying around whenever I plug a plug into a socket, so I also don’t like having to be the one to do the plugging at home.

The Future Of Cufflinks Looks Bright, Literally.
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.

Orange T-Shirt Charges Smartphones with Sound
I don’t know how much power this prototype t-shirt from Orange can generate from sound, but it may well end any energy crisis on the planet. All we need to do is hook this shirt to the grid anywhere near my wife and daughter and the non-stop talking will short something out from excess power.
