Twitter-enabled LED table

Posted in twitter by Conner Flynn on February 27th, 2010

Looks like a Lite-Brite table, but it is so much more. Instead of the usual, controlling a device via Twitter, or just displaying and reading tweets out loud, this LED does something different. It uses the tweeting masses to generate patterns of light on the table in an artistic way.

This is accomplished by using a hashtag and a specific format for entering colors and coordinates, which first are sent to a MacBook Pro and then transmitted to the table over Bluetooth. There’s even a live USTREAM feed that lets you see the results of your tweet.

Apparently all the LEDs are red, so depending on the color you choose, it may or may not look weird. They’re available in blue, green, yellow, pink , clear and smoky black for just $18.91.

Humanscale Element LED task light is green and expensive

Posted in LED by Shane McGlaun on January 27th, 2010

I never really put much thought into the chair or desk that I used when I first started writing full time. After sitting in front of a computer screen typing for hours and hours each day you quickly come to realize that a comfortable chair and an ergonomic desk are money well spent. Humanscale makes all sorts of ergonomic chairs and gear for office workers.

The company has announced an interesting a green new task light called the Element. The light uses MCX LED technology with a single multi-chip LED that can produce a large light footprint. By using a single LED rather than multiple LEDs, Humanscale was able to eliminate shadows on the desktop.

Klipsch LightSpeakers screw into light bulb sockets, play music

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on January 5th, 2010

These Klipsch LightSpeakers don’t look like much, but if you hate wires, they should appeal to you. The LED light bulb fits 5 and 6-inch light fixtures and is even dimmable, so you can replace the usual bulbs you use with these, which will apparently last for 40,000 hours.

Then you’ll be playing music wirelessly through your lights, which is what Thomas Edison wanted all along. They contain a 2.5-inch wide dispersion driver and use 20 watts. The kit comes with a transmitter that connects to a PC, CD player or iPod and sends the audio to up to eight of the light bulbs in two separate zones.

Stanley watch with built in LED flashlight

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on December 30th, 2009

This flashlight watch from Brando is pretty neat. I’m not sure how useful it actually is, or even if it’s an official Stanley gadget, but any watch with it’s own flashlight is good by me.

It also features an alarm, backlight and a timer. At least you will always have a flashlight at the ready for those projects that you choose to build in the dead of night.

USB hub with switches

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on December 17th, 2009

USB hub with switchesThis USB hub may look different, even retro, but it’s just a standard USB hub. Well, yes and no. It does let you know which USB cable is connected just by looking at it, thanks to an LED which lights up.

Each connection has it’s own switch, so you’ll have full control over whether it’s connected or not. It’s pretty cool just because it looks like it came out of the 1970′s. $88 seems a bit steep, but hey, we’re talking switches and LEDS.

LED traffic lights cause accidents

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on December 17th, 2009

USB traffic lightThis winter several American states are reporting that LED traffic lights are so energy efficient that they don’t produce enough heat to melt any snow that covers them. And this is causing accidents. One of the side effects of the previously used incandescent light bulbs was that they would melt any snow that covered them.

So the new LEDs have caused a few accidents and even a death is being blamed on them. Not to worry though, a fix is being worked on. I’m surprised none of the engineers thought of this problem before hand.

TV Armor protects flat screenGetting a new high-end flat screen LCD, plasma or LED TV this holiday season and have kids, pets or maybe a moderately clumsy person in the house? You may want to consider protecting the display on that investment with one of these acrylic protective shields from TV Armor.

We wrote about protective products from TV Armor back in September and since then the company has really been gaining traction and popularity. Let’s face it, even though flat-screen TV’s are getting a little less expensive they still are certainly not cheap. The last thing you want is a pet or kids toy, or worse yet this guy over to your house and smash something into that new big screen.
