Elfoid human-shaped phone from Japan is creepy

Posted in Mobile Phones by Reuben Drake on March 4th, 2011

The Telenoid R1 just got creepier. Elfoid was developed at Osaka University and with help from NTT DoCoMo and looks just like the Telenoid, even does pretty much the same thing, which is: giving you a human-like silhouette to talk to. At least this one can go in your pocket.

It tickles you when it rings, alerting you to the call. Just talk into its belly and it speaks to you, playing the voice of whoever’s on the line. It also moves and gestures as if you’re actually holding the person you’re conversing with. Weird.

Skull mouse is the creepiest steampunk mouse ever

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on August 23rd, 2009

Skull mouse is the creepiest steampunk mouse everUsually I see a good steampunk designed gadget and I want it. On this one I think I’ll pass. But if you are a member of the Addams family or the Munsters, this may be your ideal point and click device. Even the mouse made from real mouse parts wasn’t this creepy.

This morbid monstrosity of a mouse was created by steampunk artist Ivan Mavrovic. On his site, he says, “”the sheep dyed naturall death”. Well that may be somewhat comforting for the sheep, I don’t want to push this one around all day. Makes me feel sheepish.

Posted in Pets by Conner Flynn on July 26th, 2009

Creepy Hand Leash for lonely dog-walkersHow many times have you been walking your dog and said to yourself, I wish I had a companion that would share the walk with me. If you then entertained the notion that failing an actual human, a dismembered hand would do just fine, then this is for you. And it will identify you easily so the rest of us can stay the hell away.

It’s the Hand-Shaped Dog Leash designed by Alice Wang. So that you can sway your hand and pretend that you have a special someone as you walk your dog.(Who must be intelligent enough to be scared of you and your corpse hand.)

Sony has a heart

Posted in Sony by Conner Flynn on April 1st, 2009

If you see this thing suddenly appear in your living room, it might be a good idea to run. It wants to assimilate all of your Sony products. This nightmare-inspired mechanical heart is starring in a new series of Sony ads that will air during England’s World Cup qualifying campaign on ITV.

It’s built by special effects house Artem and consists of all kinds of Sony gear, with parts from BRAVIA TVs, Blu-ray players, VAIO laptops, Cybershot cameras, PS3s etc. Once it has absorbed enough Sony items, it will use it’s new powers to lower the price of the PS3 and lay the smack down on some Xbox 360 fanboys.

Eye Lamp is watching you watch it

Posted in Lamps by Conner Flynn on March 18th, 2009

Eye Lamp is watching you watch itThis eye lamp is creepy in a Sci-Fi, the-wall-is-alive kind of way. It’s the kind of functional wall art that will have you waxing philosophic. Are you looking at your lamp or is it looking at you? And if the eye lamp is closed so that it can’t see you, do you still exist? Mostly this concept lamp is just cool as hell and unsettling. It’s made of polished metal and shines light when it’s open.

It’s the kind of thing that Gods speak to people through. Will it require a sacrifice? What bad things will it make you do, so that it may join the world of the living? The all seeing thing even has a dimmer light, which is just the “lids” closing partially. And that just makes it looks creepier.

Stitch takes a bite out of an LCD Display

Posted in LCD by Conner Flynn on March 8th, 2009

Stitch takes a bite out of an LCD DisplayNothing too cutting edge here, but if you have an unhealthy love of Disney characters and already own the Stitch humidifier, you might consider this Stitch LCD Display.

It’s a 20-incher that features 1680 x 1050 pixels, HDMI, D4, and even a B-CAS card reader. While stitch may be taking a huge bite, he hasn’t taken a bite out of the price, which is around €800. The mouth even opens up and it features stitch’s body clinging to the rear.

LoveTrainer, for those who aren’t doing it right

Posted in Headphones by Conner Flynn on January 28th, 2009

LoveTrainer, for those who aren’t doing it rightUPDATE: Turns out this is a hoax.

Is your girlfriend telling you that you are not up to the challenge in the bedroom? Do you need some kind of lovemaking coach? This completely ridiculous product wants to train you in the art of love. The LoveTrainer, from Sega (which looks incredibly similar to the FiTrainer from iTami) is basically a set of headphones that you and your awkward lover wear in the bedroom. It plays music and helps you along with such inspirational statements as “The foreplay, will now begin!” and “You are making love, at a very good pace!”

Look, if you need this device, you should never ever touch a fellow human being, because you are some sort of human abomination, in the bedroom and out. That goes for you and your lame lover. Seriously, the pair of you should just invest in some old fashioned porn. If that still doesn’t teach you, then please stop trying to reproduce.

Newsmy MP3 dolls are an evil pair

Posted in MP3 by Conner Flynn on December 16th, 2008

Newsmy MP3 dolls are an evil pairLook, I don’t care how rotten your kid has been. Nobody deserves these creepy MP3 dolls for children. Give them coal in their stocking if you must, but spare them the trauma that this wicked pair will cause. There’s not a whole lot of info about these unbalanced and obviously devious dolls, but their names are Man-Man and Niu Niu.

The controls are in the hands and feet, and they feature an automatic shutdown, you know, in case you catch them cornering your kid with a knife, while blasting the latest Britney Spears ear-rape. The MP3 players are hidden in the guts of the dolls. This fright-fest comes hot on the heels of H-Bouya, another creep-gadget that will have your kids shaking in the corner like a crack-addict and asking “Why daddy, why?”

Mamoru, Japan’s creepy robot assistant for the eldery

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on December 15th, 2008

Mamoru, Japan’s creepy robot assistant for the elderyMamoru is a small elder-care robot created by the University of Tokyo that sort of resembles an old granny, complete with little plastic bun. It’s designed to help the elderly or disabled remember where they left their remote control or their slippers, and even offers polite reminders when it’s time to take their medicine. Mamoru recognizes objects by using a wide-angle camera to study the room. Image recognition software tells it what each object is, so it knows where everything is.

Why do we need creepy robots to look after our elderly? Do they not already fear one creature known as the Grim Reaper? Are we trying to creep them into the grave? No. No we are not. There are simply not enough caregivers compared to the number of those who need care. So, we must take our chances and hope that these robots do not torment them and start hiding the meds rather then helping to find them.

H-Bouya USB toy is creepy, confusing, bald

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on December 8th, 2008

H-Bouya USB toy is creepy, confusing, baldThe latest USB toy to come out of Japan is named H-Bouya. We’ll be honest here, it leaves us with a creepy, not safe feeling, mixed with confusion and please don’t stab us with a usb stick.

Okay, so what does it do? We are not really sure. One thing we know is that it turns red and blinks its eyes every time you hit the letter “H”. For some reason. Mostly it will just give you a crazy-eyed staring, mental beat-down without moving a limb. The objective may be to put you in a coma and report back to HQ via USB. When enough of us are asleep at our desks, it’s plan will be enter the next phase, whatever that is.

Virtual Webcam Girlfriend is enticing, a bit creepy

Posted in Webcams by Conner Flynn on November 3rd, 2008

Virtual Webcam Girlfriend is enticing, a bit creepyYou might remember this virtual nerd girlfriend from several months back. The Dennou AR Figures virtual 3D girlfriends are for those extra lonely nerds who don’t get out much. I think the idea is that you would want to check in on her now and then, apply spankings as needed and occasionally give her gifts, all safe in the knowledge that she can’t run or call the cops.

You install webcam software and when your camera detects the special cube onscreen, it puts a 3D companion into your environment. It’s available right now in Japan for $125. And we don’t want to know what you two do in your spare time. A slightly NSFW video below

New “I’m a PC” ad is creepy

Posted in Microsoft by Conner Flynn on October 29th, 2008

I’m A PC — Crowdsourced from AlleyInsider on Vimeo.
Alright, so the Seinfeld-Gates ads were interesting. Then came the “I’m a PC” ads that were different, but not really all that cool. That’s when Apple’s latest ads began to get lamer as well. So now we’re on to the latest round of “I’m a PC” ads and this one is appropriately creepy for Halloween. It features a bunch of Youtube types saying “I’m a PC”. Problem is that I found them all to be pretty creepy.

It has me seriously thinking about a Mac. I’ll break it down for you. A few could easily be serial killers, specially the first dude who is so in love with his shirt, one chases zebras and obviously is on serious medication, an old lady who wrangles lamas looks like she has to have about a million cats and I’m sure must throw them at people, a bling lover and more. Yeah, this one is just wrong.

Speaker Buddies are creepy children

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on September 27th, 2008

Speaker Buddies are creepy childrenWhoever it was that said that children should be seen and not heard probably didn’t own any Speaker Buddies. These creepy kids are seen and heard. And for some reason they look like Kenny from Southpark. It’s British designer Alex Underwood’s idea for turnig your hi-fi into some sort of creepy ode to Kenneth, he who dies alot. There they sit in ominous judgment of all who enter your home, blasting sound out of their hood. Thankfully they remain a concept at the moment, but that could change.

Genpets: Horrifying genetically modified life

Genpets: Horrifying genetically modified life
These things are just plain creepy and wrong, but if you’re looking for a toy that resembles a mutated alien baby these are for you. They’re called Genpets and they were created by the demented mind of Adam Brandejs.

They’re the “Only Bioengineered Buddy. Available in 7 different personality types”. Each personality type is linked to it’s respective color, and that color is represented on each package. Continuing with the creepy and wrong factor, each package has a built in heart monitor that is fully functional, with green LED lights and a built in speaker. I guess that way you’ll know if your Genpet has a bad ticker. Each package also has a “fresh gauge” consisting of four blue LED lights displaying the status of the Genpet’s freshness. Check out the video below to be creeped out by the horrible sounds that they make.

Mask Of Emotion: Never trust a robot head

Posted in Humor by Conner Flynn on June 8th, 2008

Mask Of Emotion: Never trust a robot head
In some sort of apocalyptic robot future, we may all be required to wear one of these to hide our identities. I call the name Mr. Roboto. It’s kind of like the emoticon version of the Micheal Myers mask, whether your just cold chillin’ at the park with your dog or stabbing somebody senselessly, it’s all creepy on the outside. It’s a research project from the Digital Media Design department at Hongik University in Korea.

The idea is to hide your facial expressions so people can’t see your emotions. Those around you won’t see your face, just the LEDs of death, that form emoticons. The default setting is no expression at all, but as you interact, the display will smile etc. Imagine a few people on your street wearing these while going about their daily business. Now imagine the entire street full of them. An entire town. I’m too creeped out to continue, but the point is that you WILL see a few with an axe or a machete.
