Circular walking bookshelf for literary human hamsters

Posted in Furniture by Conner Flynn on April 25th, 2010

Reading is awesome. It will expand your horizons, take you on amazing adventures etc. But sitting down to read isn’t helping you stay slim. These circular walking bookshelves can help you workout your body along with your brain.

Artist David Garcia has built a prototype. However this should be marketed for holding video games, not books. That’s where we need the exercise. You’ll need a large room for this thing, but it will keep you fit.

Moonwatch, the Werewolf’s new best friend

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on April 8th, 2010

One of the problems with being a werewolf, aside from the fact that you change once a month and go on a killing spree, is that it’s a pain to keep track of the lunar cycle. What if you forget to mark it on a calendar? Well, the Moonwatch will show you the time either by hour or by phase of the moon, so you’ll never be caught off guard again.

That way if you want, you can lock yourself in a cage ahead of time. The rest of us thank you ahead of time for being a responsible Werewolf and using this watch, which is not available yet, but hopefully soon.

Cornered Glass Spider Trap

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on March 29th, 2010

Spiders are icky, creepy and nasty. You have to get them out of your home at all costs. But maybe you don’t want to kill them. After all, it isn’t their fault that they are nasty creepy bugs. So normally you would use a glass to trap them on the wall and escort them outside. But that isn’t possible when they are on the corners of your wall.

This Cornered Glass trap was designed by James Laurie for just such occasions. This way you can still catch it and put it outside.

MacBook 3D concept, glasses included

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on March 28th, 2010

Everyone else is going 3D, so why not take a look at what a MacBook 3D would be like? That’s what designer Tai Chiem has done here with this glimpse into what it could be like. This concept MacBook has stereoscopic iSight cameras, 3D glasses and a hingeless spine design.

We don’t have any info on how it all works, it’s just a dream for all of you apple fans to drool over. Somehow, I don’t think Apple will be making anything 3D like this anytime soon.

Roundbox Computer will make learning fun

Posted in Computers by Conner Flynn on March 28th, 2010

They never had cool stuff like this when I was a kid. The Roundbox is a portable computer that is designed to encourage creative learning for children. No boring books with boring old text. Instead there is a digital camera, video game console, TV, DVD player, computer and pen, all in one rugged device that your child can’t destroy easily.

What more do you need for learning? It’s for kids from ages 5-14 and has a computer mode, gaming mode, movie mode, art mode and camera mode. The touchpad can even be removed and converted into a wireless mouse.

Infinite USB Connector concept

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on March 22nd, 2010

Here’s a simple but very cool USB plug concept design. Why no one has thought of it before, we don’t know. It should certainly solve the problem of running out of USB ports on laptops. This USB connector has both the male and female connectors, so you can daisy-chain several together and live happily ever after in USB toy land.

Of course, they would get unstable very quick once several are plugged in. The color coding is a nice feature though. This could be very useful.

Tokyo Flash Hexagon Watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on March 5th, 2010

If bees wore watches this is what they would look like. Just looking at this watch, you know it’s from Tokyo Flash. But this Hexagonal watch isn’t real, it’s just a stunning concept. We hope that Tokyo Flash decides to make it real.

Telling the time on this thing is easy. The blue colored LEDS are the hours, five minute increments are purple and individual minutes are pink. So are you all buzzing about this watch? Sorry, bad joke. I’ll bee more careful in the future.

Grass Lamp combines the green outdoors with light

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on February 23rd, 2010

If you are an apartment dweller, you are probably used to some of your objects having multiple functions. How about combining your lamp with a garden?

That’s the idea behind the Grass Lamp. You can’t grow vegetables in the Grass Lamp, but grass will just love the lamp’s light and maybe remind you to actually venture outdoors, while allowing you to appreciate the outdoors while inside.

Vintage 8-track transformed into an iPod dock

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on February 21st, 2010

I love Vintage radios and 8-Tracks. Many just have a retro design that can’t be beat. The kind of style that no one is delivering today. The only thing better than a well designed vintage 8-Track player would be one that was modified as an iPod dock.

That’s exactly what we have here. This instructable shows you how to do it. Clearing out an 8-Track’s guts to to hold the contents of an iPod dock isn’t all that hard. The most important thing is that you start off with a great vintage device.

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.

Two way toothpaste solves an age old problem

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on February 17th, 2010

Putting caps on both sides of a toothpaste tube should have been done a long time ago. Two Way Toothpaste. Get it? Why it hasn’t been thought of before, we have no idea, but we’re glad that it’s finally here. It’s just a concept right now, but you know that some company will run with this one.

Now if this tube could have some actual working toothpaste inside that actually makes dental visits obsolete, then it would be perfect. If any of it actually worked, dentists would be out of a job.

The Screw Coffin

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on February 10th, 2010

They screw you in life, so why not in death? Life is just the turn of some giant screw anyway. Screw it. The Screw coffin puts a new spin on coffins and burials. It works pretty much how you would think. Insert the body of your loved one into the large screw, screw it into the ground and you’re done.

One cool thing is that the lid is your grave marker. Not only would such a system save space in cemetaries, but it’s also bound to be more economical. I would imagine it’s also easier to exhume bodys as you just unscrew it.

Nexus One meets Colorware

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on January 27th, 2010

Colorware strikes yet another unsuspecting gadget. This time it’s the Nexus One. Oh the humanity. That Nexus One above is sporting IE colors, but you can choose whatever you like.

Your Nexus One will take three weeks to undergo its transformation, like gadget moth to beautiful gadget butterfly, for $175 if you’re supplying the phone or $800 for a brand new one. You are only limited by your imagination and your wallet.

Daily Shelter, a table that turns into a fort

Posted in Furniture by Conner Flynn on January 18th, 2010

Kids love to hide under tables. Problem is they don’t make great forts, since every side is exposed and the adults occasionally like to eat on it. The “Daily Shelter” by artist Ingrid Brandth is a dining-room table that kids will love.

It converts to a secret fort. First, it’s an ordinary table. But it can secretly turn into a shelter where kids can hide from scary ghosts or just use their imagination. Ask any kid, there’s nothing cooler than a fort. A table that turns into a fort? Pure awesomeness.

Finger Battery Charger concept

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on January 4th, 2010

Sometimes charging gadgets can be a real pain. Too many adapters, not enough outlets or USB ports. Plus they take a while to charge up. Well, with this concept, all you need is your finger. Which beats carrying extra juice packs and chargers everywhere.

This concept is from Song Teaho & Hyejin Lee and it allows you to charge your devices battery with a few quick spins on your finger. Well…More like about 130 revolutions. But hey, it keeps you juiced up and gives your finger some exercise.
