Field Cooker portable stove, for sheep stalking

Field Cooker portable stove, for sheep stalking
Looking at the pic above, I’m not going to speculate as to why an aging Moby is so intent on watching a bunch of sheep that he has to strap a portable stove onto a tree. I’m also not going to speculate what Moby will do after he finishes cooking, but he has sort of a lustful look in his eye. Probably composing the Deliverance theme in techno.

I will tell you that the Field cooker is just that, a portable stove/cooker, complete with chopping board, that straps onto trees so you can heat and eat outdoors. It was designed by Stefano Santilli to encourage more outdoorsy eating. Which is fine and all, but damn, it looks like Moby even brought eggs. He’s obviously prepared to wait.

Weight Seat for the extremely lazy who want to lose weight

Weight Seat for the extremely lazy who want to lose weight
This weight seat is great for those who have taken an interest in their weight, but not so much interest that they need to stand up and walk to the scale. Also great for eating meals and literally watching the pounds add up. It’s probably also good for video game players who don’t have the Wii, but think that their games can really get them in shape. Just sit on your butt, button-mash as you frag enemies and keep looking down. I’m sure you’ll see some results eventually. It was designed by Atypyk design studios and sadly I think it would be a real hit with many large mammals.

Retro Space upgrades the classic arcade cabinet

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on August 17th, 2008

Retro Space upgrades the classic arcade cabinetCreated by Martjin Koch, the Retro Space pays honors the classic arcade cabinets of the past. It’s a nicely designed cabinet that fits right in today and would also be right at home in a smoky arcade of the 80′s. But it’s got more then looks going for it. It also features arcade-quality Sanwa joysticks and the buttons are mounted on an anodized aluminum control panel.

Of course the layout supports classic 1 & 2 person games and even has the very necessary trackball. Here’s the cool part, it includes over 100 licensed arcade classics AND suite of emulators. If that’s not enough, you can use it as an HD media jukebox for your music collection with 1080p video playback on a 24-inch 1920×1200 monitor. We want one. Who knew a yellow arcade machine could be so sexy?

MingJong M6637U robotic webcams to take over world one desk at a time
A Taiwanese company known as MingJong has released some colorful robotic UVC compliant USB 2.0 webcams called ‘M6637U’ that sport 1.3-megapixels.

These little guys have the right idea. If you want to take over the world, you have to appeal to those lovers of cute and colorful desk accessories. Put a bunch together and they are clearly interacting, comparing notes for our eventual assimilation. Then when a human comes back into the room they all freeze. There’s not a whole lot of info on these guys, but be weary. Never turn your back on one.

Solar powered necktie combines business with geek

Solar powered necktie combines business with geek
We’ve seen our share of solar powered devices, but nothing so hideous and blatantly dorky as the solar powered necktie. It will not only collect solar power, but it also singles you out as a geek. You can thank a group of braniacs at Iowa State University for creating it. It’s made from newly developed solar fabrics. The solar panels are tiny and laid out in a grid that at least makes it look somewhat like any other tacky tie.

It even sports a pocket sewn into the back so your device can suck precious juice like a parasite that no one can see. This technology can only end with a living symbiote tie that strangles you dead, thereby making it look like you’ve committed suicide. Then they’ll take over the world. No one will know. It will just seem like unusually high suicides. Let’s just stop wearing them now, can we? They’re silly.

Supposedly the PMPs are compatible with both Windows Media Player and iTunes, with a drag and drop interface. Nothing on price yet or what country will see it first. Not even a release date, but expect them on the next month or two. We’ll let you know when we hear more.

Casio G-Shock G8100A-5 is slightly steampunk

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on August 17th, 2008

Casio G-Shock G8100A-5 is slightly steampunkThe Casio G-Shock G8100A-5 is a watch with typical modern features, while at the same time sporting a vague ‘antique’ design. Obviously Casio doesn’t want to miss out on the steampunk market. It’s got a bronze colored aluminum face and perforated resin band and a price tag of $99.

Even though this watch is only barely steampunk, it has a bunch of features like, auto dual electroluminescent backlights with ‘afterglow’, world time with 29 time zones and automatic daylight savings adjustments, 2 multi-function alarms, snooze alarm, timer that can countdown 1 minute to 24 hours, stopwatch, and it’s shock and water resistant to 200 meters. Not a bad watch if you want to look only slightly steampunk.

The Sfera spherical washing machine

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on August 17th, 2008

The Sfera spherical washing machineWashing machines are big and bulky. They always have been. Therefore they could use a radical new design. The Sfera spherical washing machine is shaped like…Well a sphere. It’s small enough to take up residence in your bathroom somewhere and though it will save space, you won’t be able to do any big loads of laundry.

With that in mind, it would probably be good for the single midget bachelor, but not many others. The entire ball spins to get your clothes clean, you’ll just have to do laundry all day. And that’s the problem with small washing machines. About the only way to solve it is to put a washing machine above your toilet or in your bathroom wall.

Terminator head DVD player is most awesome thing ever

Terminator head DVD player is most awesome thing ever
It really is the most awesome thing ever. But being from the future, shouldn’t it know about Blu-Ray by now? It’s a DVD player / Terminator head! There’s not much info about this thing online, like where to buy it etc. Probably because Sarah Connor erased the info after she blew it up. All I can tell you for sure is that the Terminator head DVD player can not be reasoned with, it can’t be killed and it will hunt you until you are dead… While playing such DVDs as When Harry Met Sally or Beaches in it’s DVD head to pass the time while in the past.

iPhone mod makes Apple logo glow

iPhone mod makes Apple logo glow
The short video clip below starts off like it might be some kind of creepy videodrome clip featuring that one chick from Sex and the City, but it’s not and it’s not that chick. Before you know it, shows off a modded iPhone with a glowing apple logo that can serve as a nice bright flashlight.

That’s because some Russians have replaced the Apple logo on the back of an original iPhone with a glowing version. There isn’t much detail, but apparently they swapped out the aluminum logo for a glowing one. Apparently, custom software allows the user to select the brightness of the effect independently of the screen brightness.

Desktop kung fu baby things will you in the nads
Looking for a new desk toy with some attitude? These guys have plenty. Just look at these guys. You know that they would just walk up to you and kick you in the nuts for no reason at all. Then they wouldn’t even laugh. They’d just look at you all doubled over as if admiring their handiwork, nod and walk away. They’re known as KANFUBOI (Kung-Fu-Boy).

Just put them on your desktop, switch ‘em on, and watch the punches and kicks fly. A built-in sound sensor makes them punch unsuspecting victims. Seriously, watch the video below. These guys aren’t messing around. They will kick and punch the crap out of you and your co-workers will be too intimidated to stop them. In the end you’ll be crying under your desk like a girl and mumbling warnings about no more imports from Japan. They are only available in Japan for $18 each.

PowerPlus Pirana wind up shaver needs no batteries
Wind up gadgets are becoming more and more mainstream. Just look at the wind up remote. It’s about time too as there are so many gadgets that can benefit from being wound up and not needing batteries ever again. You save money and it’s good for the environment too.

Just crank it up and these devices are good to go. The internal dynamo generates enough electricity to keep th is shaver powered for a full shave. If you cannot be bothered winding it up then you can still charge it via a plug. This is also awesome when traveling since you’ll always be able to get rid of that five o’clock shadow.
