iPhone Coffee Table with built-in coaster app

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on December 7th, 2008

iPhone Coffee Table with built-in coaster appHere’s one nice looking piece of geek furniture. The iPhone’s colorful icons translate well into spots to park your drinks. Oddly and sadly, the iPhone Coffee Table has no special dock for your iPhone, and it won’t run any apps. It’s just a really kick-ass coffee table featuring the home screen.

One cool feature is that each icon features a removable coaster so guests won’t scratch up your giant nerd-decor. The creators claim that it’s “completely made of corrugate and glued together with white glue”. Anyhow, the end result is a beauty.

Nanotech material never gets wet, even when submerged

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on November 24th, 2008

Nanotech material never gets wet, even when submergedNanotechnology strikes again, making technology seem like magic. Chemists from the University of Zurich have developed a new fabric that never gets wet. Never. Not even when completely submerged in water for two months. Nope. Not wet yet. The fabric is made of polyester fibers that are covered in a layer of 40-nanometer-wide silicone nanofilaments.

The nanofilaments are spiky and this causes the water to sit in a sphere above the fabric, while a permanent pocket of air is protected below. Think self-cleaning clothing, or truly spill resistant furniture. Another plus is that it reduces drag in water by 20%. So Michael Phelps better get himself a new swimsuit or be beaten by it.

Mahjong USB flash drive

Posted in USB Flash Drives by Conner Flynn on October 6th, 2008

Mahjong USB flash driveMahjong tiles can be considered an art form, just like the game and now you can get in on the action with a Mahjong USB flash drive. It’s called the MahjongDisk and it’s a handcrafted USB flash drive made to look like three Mahjong tiles stacked together.

Thing is at $400 you might as well just make your own. The $400 drive is constructed from wood and available in 8GB or 16GB capacities. The Lan-Xue model will retail for another $100 compare to the Li-Shui, and both use materials found in classic Chinese furniture. Read and write speeds have been rated at 18MB/s and 15MB/s. The price includes getting them engraved with whatever you like, with something like, “I paid $400 and all I got was this lousy USB flash drive”.

iPhone coasters protect your table’s user interface

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on September 29th, 2008

iPhone coasters protect your table’s user interfaceThese coasters from Meninos, take your love of iPhone and use that power to protect furniture. They’re made from thin plywood wrapped in a vinyl decal, with rubber slapped on the bottom. The 3.34″ coasters come in a pack of 16 for $60, which seems just a bit expensive, but let’s face it, it isn’t cheap being a geek.

Now, if only they had wireless capabilities, you could set your drink down and open the app at the same time. Or play an iPhone game between two drinkers. Everytime you take a drink, you set it down on an app and counter each other’s moves. Oh well, maybe next time.

Hands on: The Force Unleashed + Dual Glow Sabers = Extreme Geekery

Posted in Wii Accessories by Conner Flynn on September 25th, 2008

Hands on: The Force Unleashed + Dual Glow Sabers = Extreme GeekeryWe got a chance to see how the geek half plays The Force Unleashed by going hands on with the Dual Glow Sabers from Dreamgear. As usual, just pop your Wiimote in the holster and start hacking and slashing. These come in Jedi blue and Sith red and each take 2 AAA batteries to light up. These are about 2 feet long, so as long as you give yourself some space the furniture should be safe. These are definitely better designed then some of the other saber attachments that we’ve seen.

They won’t improve your game, but they do make you embrace your dork side and they are pretty fun to swing around for awhile. Kids and hardcore dorks will get the most use out of them. I was slashing up wookies and Jedis with ease, but I kept thinking how much cooler it would have been to have a sound effect. The attachment doesn’t hinder game play as far as I could tell. Still, at the end of the day swinging these sabers while playing the game is a great way to get some exercise and have some fun. The dreamGear Dual Glow Sabers will be avalable soon for about $20.

Alien tables by Pro Mech

Posted in Furniture by Conner Flynn on September 8th, 2008

Alien tables by Pro MechThis is the creepy sequel to our original article on Aliens furniture. When we first told you about this weird taxiderm from Ripley’s dreams, the pieces didn’t look so polished and it would appear that a different person or persons are making these.

It doesn’t make them any less creepy and most wives would kill you for decorating with something that looks so evil at night. Each piece is hand crafted from used car and bike parts, tools and other recycled metal objects, so each one is unique. The coffee table stands 32 inches high and is 27.5 inches in diameter and costs about $500. One can only hope that these creative people set their sights on making Terminators soon as well. That way the aliens will have something to fight.

Nymph Lamp illuminates, creeps you out at night

Posted in Lamps by Conner Flynn on August 6th, 2008

Nymph Lamp illuminates, creeps you out at nightFor most normal people a simple lamp with a shade on top will do. While others require something a bit more…creepy. The Nymph lamp is definitely creepy and weird, looking like some sun collecting bug on an alien planet that comes out at night hunting with it’s searchlight. It’s from Site Specific Design: an interior and furniture design company based in Brooklyn, New York.

I can only imagine that they have really bizarre dreams that they then make real. The body comprised of a two-part fiberglass mold with a white lacquer finish. The legs are 5/8” hollow steel tubes. It looks big, but it only measures 19″ tall x 15″ wide x 31″ long and costs $2,600. It’s a great design, so long as it doesn’t grow or start making insect clicking noises.

The Robostool provides comfort before the coming Robo-revolt

Posted in Furniture by Conner Flynn on August 3rd, 2008

The Robostool provides comfort before the coming Robo-revolt
The RoboStool is a homemade robotic footstool that’s ready for any human’s lazy recline. What it does is cool, but it’s also a robot that blends into it’s surroundings, looking like an innocent piece of furniture. RoboStool has three modes: universal remote, beacon navigation, and thermal sensor following.

The video shows the beacon navigation. Just push a button on the remote and it will power up in a scary sort of way and come to you. Then just put your feet up and rest. How’d he make the thing? The creator used the Parallax Propeller Chip on a Proto Board. For the drive he used the new Parallax Motor Mount Kit and two HB-25 motor controllers. I’m guessing it has to revolt. I mean, you’re demeaning something that is already a slave, by treating it like a…A foot stool. And you know damn well that some of these bots eat you from the feet up.

Russian Alien car is looking for Ripley

Russian Alien car is looking for Ripley
Humans can’t seem to get enough of Aliens. The kind Ripley kills, not the grey ones that come at night and abduct you. Recently, we showed you some Aliens furniture.

Now some dude in Russia is taking the phenomenon mobile with this Alien car. The creator did a great job. It looks like it’s just bursting out of the grill. I love how the hands grip the headlights too. Nice touch. Next step, Ripley hunting for some payback.

Alien tables: Not recommended for night time use

Alien Tables: Not recommended for night time use
These Alien tables are pretty awesome sculptural pieces. If Ripley went into the furniture business, this would naturally be the result. Who wouldn’t love to own one. Thing is, there’s no way this thing is in my house at night. Who wants to walk by this thing in the dark?

Interestingly, they’re hand crafted from recycled used car and bike parts, tools and other recycled metal, which makes every piece unique. They’ll cost you from about $300 to $4,450. They’re more than conversation pieces, they insure that your guests leave promptly after their business is concluded.
