Japanese Teahouse or glowing peanut?

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on February 21st, 2008

Behold the glowing peanut
This Japanese teahouse resembles a futuristic glowing peanut SPACESHIP with a huge docking bay in front. This inflatable Japanese teahouse is designed by Kengo Kuma, and was created for an exhibit at the Museum für Angewandte Kunst Frankfurt. Inside you’ll find a bunch of LED lights that not only light the place up, but they also serve as an interior heat source.

Normally this type of structure does not make it past the drawing board, but the Japanese have more guts then we do when it comes to architecture. It almost looks like a real living organism. Put a few futuristic fighting samurai outside guarding the door and you have yourself the opening to a cool Sci-Fi flick.

Coffee mug displays your feeds, plays clips

The future of morning coffee
Having a smart coffee mug in the morning would certainly make life a whole lot sweeter. Imagine a mug that could have your stock quotes scrolling across it’s surface, or display a newscast right before your eyes as you pour your coffee in. It seems like Science Fiction, even now, but the day may not be that far off. This concept of a Yuno coffee mug PC boldly steers your morning ritual in that direction.

Computer chips are getting smaller and smaller, it’s not a quantum leap to envision a mug equipped with a touch-screen that would let you wake up away from the PC. It would let you display your own images as a screensaver or play a slide show while you’re taking your coffee break. The idea would be to have a complete PC on the mug.

Spice Blaster seasons your food at gun point
The spice blaster is a project designed by Chinese designers Zhu Fei and was one of the entries from designboom’s recent “dining in 2015″ competition. We hope it becomes real in the near future, because shooting spices at food sounds like alot of fun. Not to mention the mischief you could get into with this gun. Imagine shooting pepper at that annoying someone and making them sneeze for a good half hour.

Yes this could be a fun toy. The idea here is that by using an air bag that compresses when the trigger is pressed, the spice gun blasts seasoning all over your food. This could be fun if you worked in a restaurant as well. Just run out into the dining area and randomly shoot spices at people’s food. You may not have your job after that, but those would be some good times.

Zen Stone of Wood

Zen Stone carved out of woodIt would appear that someone was paying more attention in their high school shop class than myself. Captain Odegard of the anything but ipod forums has managed to create a zen stone… out of a felled tree. Made out of pine, the good captain shaped and molded the Zen and then Burned the lettering and control buttons in with a hot knife.

Coming in at 8.25 X 5.5 X 2 inches the device most certainly won’t fit in your pocket, but i would imagine it attracts more attention than its little brother. And as a side note to Creative, sorry gentlemen the internal components are not that of the zen stone due to the steep price in Norway. The wood stone tries to make up for it’s size by providing four times the memory of it’s plastic counterpart via a 4GB SD …
