Bloggers/photographers/tiny mecha manufacturers Lenny & Meriel take cold and complicated computer innards and turn them into something heartwarming: Sparebots.
The photo above is captioned, “I think we should try a 5.” Awwww.
And that’s a robot dog that poops lead.
At first glance, this lighting fixture might look like a table lamp. But upon further examination, it turns out that it’s actually a sconce you hang on the wall.
Designer Marcus Tremonto pokes strands of illuminated wires through glossy sheets of Perspex acrylic to create the illusion of 3-dimensional geometric forms.
While the bright self-lit forms are reminiscent of neon, they actually operate using cool-burning electroluminescent wire, consuming minimal power.
Numerous wires are precisely manipulated to create amazing sculptural forms, including traditional lamps, chandeliers, as well as more abstract shapes.
Tremento is makes his lighting fixtures in extremely limited editions, and you can find some of his recent works over at Generate LE.
Ever get your headset wires snagged on your clothes or your bag while you’re on the move? Here’s a fun way to keep your cord from getting tangled as you saunter down the street to the sounds of your iPod.
This wouldn’t be the first time that I’ve seen a cord wrap for headphone wires, but this little guy is definitely my favorite.
There’s just something about these ninja bunny rabbit dudes that makes me smile every time I look at them.
These pint-sized, cable holding guys come to us courtesy of Korea’s J’Story (also featured this morning for their wonderful, whimsical organizer tabs).
Unfortunately, these cable manager ninja bunnies are only available in Korea at this point.
If you’ve ever walked along a carpet in the wintertime, you know all about how you can generate electrical shocks without ever plugging in to an outlet. Now it looks like your body movements could be harnessed to provide electricity for your mobile electronics.
Sculptor Rodger Stevens and designer Mark McKenna created these flowing modern mobiles which embed elegant modern illumination into their design. Originally designed as a large-scale art installation, a smaller version of their Orchadia mobiles are now available for purchase.
Each sculpture is made of varying sizes of metallic teardrops which hang from the ceiling.
There’s something that’s just right about this USB hub. The little guy strikes a near-perfect balance between design, simplicity and functionality (although that’s the one place it falls a little short).
Kikkerland’s USB Hub Man has flexible wire arms and legs with a port at the end of each one.
Designer Gabriel Nigro couldn’t stand the rats’ nest of cables that were strewn about his floor, but didn’t want some industrial-looking cord management system. So he created everyone’s new best friend, Woofy the Cable Dog.
Woofy conceals cables inside his belly to keep all your wires nice and tidy.
One of the biggest problems with home electronic gear is hiding all the wires associated with your projects. Sure, there are cable management solutions such as cord channels, cable ties and ugly wiremold systems, but none of them look nearly as nice as running all your cables in the walls.
