LiteLocker hides your Christmas lights

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on December 22nd, 2010

Christmas lights are cool, but they are a pain since you need to take them down again when the season is over. The LiteLocker will help make it less of a chore. The idea is that it will fold up and hide the lights behind a protective cover once the Christmas season is over.

That not only keeps them out of sight, but you also won’t need to go through the hassle of putting them all away. It’s available in 4-foot lengths and will ship with all of the necessary wiring, sockets and light bulbs to get you started.

House season finale shot on a Canon 5D Mark II

The HD video quality of dSLRs is amazing these days. And so the House season finale has now been shot entirely on a Canon 5D Mark II.

House director Greg Yaitanes recently announced the news on Twitter. He says the 5D was a perfect fit for the “tight spaces” of the finale. They used some Canon prime lenses along with the 24-70 and 70-200 zoom and they didn’t even use an image stabilization rig of any sort for the non-tripod shots. Pretty impressive.

LEGO House is an amazingly detailed computerWe’ve seen some pretty impressive Lego creations. Whether it’s the Lego Uzi, the Lego Playstation, or the old Lego safe, one thing is for sure. We love playing with Legos.

This functional LEGO house is a working computer. But the amount of detail that went into it is simply stunning. You could look at it all day and still find more things that you missed. Sadly, the display was not given the LEGO treatment. Hit the link below for a video.

Reboot: The self-sufficient house rebooted
Imagine a future where homes look like oversized futuristic gadgets rather then the same old stale design. The Reboot is designed not just to look pleasing, but also to be entirely self-sufficient. It has energy collecting solar paint, wind turbines and a rainwater collection system, for hydroelectric energy and water for the house.

The designer incorporates a variety of different renewable energy options together. Some of the features inside include, voice activated house controls and terminals throughout the structure that link to your home computer and phone line. It would be awesome to live in this house, but everytime I turned my back on it, I would feel like it was about to zap me with a plasma beam.

Charge your electric car batteries in the house

Charge your electric car batteries in the house
The thing that sucks about electric cars is that they need to be plugged in every day. Most people don’t have a plug in their garage or their driveway. That being the case, you are going to have an extension cord mess somewhere.

That won’t be a problem with the MIRA HAV, an electric car that’s designed a little smarter. It allows you to remove the batteries and charge them up in your home. That’s where your outlets are after all, so it makes sense. Obviously moving large batteries to and fro is not ideal either. They have some flaws to work out, but hey, it’s an option that has to work for some people.
