Phoneballs iPhone case

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on June 8th, 2010

Dropped calls? This iPhone case has dropped balls. Normally a case will protect your phone, but I’m not so sure this one will. After all, haven’t countless videos shown us that balls are like magnets when it comes to being kicked and punched in them?

Seems like it would draw some sort of vicious ball attack. They come in blue and peach and will cost you $15. Not sure why you would want that end near your mouth while using your phone, but at least 10% of all proceeds go to testicular cancer research.

Aspiral Analog Clocks trade hands for balls

Posted in Clocks by Conner Flynn on February 18th, 2010

Check out these awesome and retro Aspiral Clocks. They have no hands or digital displays. Instead they use balls to tell time in an ingeniously simple design.

The clock spins, moving the ball through the spiral. Every twelve hours the ball disappears in a hole at the center. Sadly at $545, it won’t end up in many homes. Still, it’s a unique way to tell time with some style and movement.

Rubik's Cube 360 goes on sale next weekRubik’s cube took the world by storm a few decades back. The man behind the cube is now ready to let another creation loose upon the world in the form of the spherical 360. Yes, he has gone as far as possible with cube puzzle technology and has now moved onto a round puzzle.

It’s a see-through sphere with domes on the outside. Within the main structure, there are two more spheres, with balls in the center. The colors of the balls match the little domes. You can already see how this thing will drive you nuts.

The Ponginator shoots Ping Pong balls at 170 mph

The Ponginator shoots Ping Pong balls at 170 mphThere’s no rhyme or reason to the three story tall Ponginator. It simply exists because it must. Humans must have a gigantic robot that shoots ping pong balls at speeds of 170mph. Inventor, Vernon Graner built this monstrosity together with the Austin Robot Group. It is capable of standing three-stories tall thanks to the attached bucket lift.

This bot makes people crazy. Insane people actually request to be hit by the pingpong ball projectiles that it hurls. This ping-pong shooting King Kong robot was made to promote to the Austin Robot Group and to get people asking questions about robotics in general. It has worked. Because I need to ask how the hell you survive this thing if it goes rogue and pelts you with like 200 balls. Check out a video of the Ponginator in action below.

Pea Speaker concept has Bluetooth balls

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on September 7th, 2008

Pea Speaker concept has Bluetooth ballsYou don’t see concepts based on peas everyday. Designer Lu Le was inspired by the pea-pod for this wireless “dynamic audio environment” Pea Speaker system, which has seven Bluetooth-enabled speaker spheres, that can be spread around a room for a hopefully awesome stereo sound. The idea is not to have a more perfect surround sound system, but to more completely fill an area with sound. It certainly makes sense and is a great way to have music everywhere. Recharging of the spheres would be through induction when in the ‘pod’. This concept has a very good chance of hitting the market very soon.
