LED Football 2 for iPhone

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on December 28th, 2008

LED Football 2 for iPhoneWhile it won’t impress today’s kids who grew up on Madden NFL, this will be a familiar sight to those of us who grew up in the 70s/80s. It’s an updated version of the LED football handheld we all knew and loved. It’s up at the AppStore.

Some new features include running, kicking, punts, field goals and passing. You won’t even have to worry about wear to the plastic buttons or buying a new 9 volt battery. With Passing you have total offense. This is how football was played once upon a time, as blips on a screen.

LG to unveil slimmest LED LCD at CES 2009

Posted in LG by Conner Flynn on December 28th, 2008

LG to unveil slimmest LED LCD at CES 2009LG is the latest manufacturer to stretch the limits of LCD TVs. LG will unveil the “LH95,” the world’s slimmest LED LCD TV at CES in January in Las Vegas. The LG LH95 is expected to be only 24.8mm thick, which should be good enough to back the manufacturer’s claim. The LH95 will feature a 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio screen and come with 240Hz TrueMotion Drive technology.

According to LG, this LED LCD TV will be the 2009 CES Innovation Award winner in the Display category. I’m not sure how much thinner they can go, but this one is pretty darn skinny. Hopefully it lives up to all of the companies boasting.

LED hose nozzle for night gardening

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on December 26th, 2008

LED hose nozzle for night gardeningIt’s better to water your plants in the evening, when the sun isn’t beating down on them. That way the water doesn’t evaporate right away and the ground can soak up as much as it needs. So that means you need to garden in the dark, but how are you supposed to see what’s going on?

With an LED garden hose of course. This garden hose nozzle has a light on it, so you can see exactly where you’re spraying. It doubles as a defensive weapon as well, should you see an intruder among your plants and vegetables. You’ll be able to see them run away when you spray them.

Hourglass Lantern replaces sand with LED light

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

Hourglass Lantern replaces sand with LED lightThis is a fairly interesting lantern concept from designer Young Bok Kim. It puts a modern spin on the hourglass by draining the light from LEDs instead of using sand. While conspiracy theorists will no doubt say that the ancient Egyptians already had such technology, no they did not, get a grip and throw out your series of Paranormal Time-Life books.

If you adjust the dial in the center, you can control how fast the light “drains” from top to bottom. I’m not sure it would be all that practical as it looks like it would be hard to tell tell how full the bottom is getting.

Kisai Tenmetsu Tokyoflash watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on December 9th, 2008

Kisai Tenmetsu Tokyoflash watchTenmetsu is the latest addition to the brand new line of Kisai timepieces from Japanese watch importer Tokyoflash. The idea behind this one is that with three LEDs positioned beneath each lens, you’ll get a transition between LED colors, creating an unusual look. And it does. As usual Tokyoflash comes up with a unique design.

This one is nice and light weight because it’s made from aluminum. You can get one in either silver or black. So how do you read the time on this one? The time and date are shown in sequence by color. Red LEDs indicate 15 units, amber LEDs indicate 5 units and green LEDs indicate 1 unit, a combination of which present hours, minutes, months and date. Still confused? Me too.

LED boombox wrist watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on November 16th, 2008

LED boombox wrist watchThis watch is great for Boom-Box enthusiasts whose arms are too frail to carry around the real thing. Flüd’s Boombox watch looks like an actual tiny version of the Boom-Boxes of yesterday. The watch even features an old school 7-segment red LED display that looks authentic to the period. Unfortunately those small speakers don’t pump out any tunes. The Boombox watch is available in shiny silvertone or gunmetal grey for $90. Unlike the real thing, half of it’s weight isn’t due to D cell batteries.

Skull belt buckle MP3 player with LED display

Skull belt buckle MP3 player with LED displayThis Heavy Metal-esqe skull belt buckle will make your crotch more hardcore and play music. It holds your pants up while holding 1GB of tunes. It also displays LED light patterns, but can’t do so while playing music. The manufacturer claims that it can also be used “as a handheld weapon,” though I’m not sure how that works.

Maybe it distracts your opponent with it’s light show. Maybe you’re opponent will feel sorry for you and your fashion sense, giving you an opening to undo your belt and give them a beat down complete with soundtrack and flashing lights. You can get it now at wholesale, but do you really want to be that guy?

LG KC560 in the works

Posted in LG by Conner Flynn on November 10th, 2008

LG KC560 in the worksThe LG KC560 resembles the LG KC550, but this time around the KC560 will focus on style and music instead. Disco by the looks of it. What makes the LG KC560 different from most other handsets? The colored LEDs at the bottom for one thing.

The colored LEDs will start to blink each time you get an incoming call, and it will also light up in time with whatever track you happen to be playing. Which, again, by the looks of it should be the Bee Gees or Abba. Or God forbid KC and the Sunshine Band. Some specs include: Tri-band GSM (900/1800/1900), GPRS/EDGE connectivity, 2.4? 262K color QVGA TFT display, 3.2 megapixel camera with LED flash, FM radio, USB and Bluetooth and microSD memory card slot. Expect to pay $300 to $350 for the LG KC560.

LED watch has no face, lots of style

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on November 10th, 2008

LED watch has no faceHere’s an LED watch that is both simple and stylish, designed by Hiranao Tsuboi. The entire thing looks like a watch band itself, with no face. That’s because the watch face is built right into the band with LED. The numbers light up around the segments of the band, making for a cool and streamlined watch that’s simply a circle. My guess is that we’ll be seeing more of this design in the near future.

LED Bath Light does it all

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on November 6th, 2008

LED Bath Light does it allThe LED Bath Light seems to do it all and then some. This device functions as a flashlight, a candle, a rave machine (For when you have company in the tub and are sucking on pacifiers?), and it’s smart enough to pull thermometer duty as well so you won’t burn yourself accidentally in the bath.

But thats not all. It also comes with an LED light to make your bath time soothing and relaxing. It has several modes to suit any situation, so if you want to use it for other things you can. It’s just a concept, but damn if I don’t want to bath with this thing now.

USB Endoscope for tight spots, crazy DIY exams

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

USB Endoscope for tight spots, crazy DIY examsStudying to be a proctologist? Just want to practice for your own impending exam? No problem. The USB Endoscope has got your back…side…all scared and puckered up. This two-foot-long USB-powered roto-rooter snake has LEDs and a camera at one end, as well as a powerful 40X microscopic lens. Nasty applications aside, it could be pretty useful for getting into tight spots, having a look in ancient tombs or whatever. I’m not sure it’s worth the $140 price tag, but if you buy one and complain, you know where you can stick it.

DIY SpokePOV lights up your bike, shows support for Obama

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on October 27th, 2008

DIY SpokePOV lights up your bike, shows support for ObamaIt used to be that all you could do with your bike spokes was insert a baseball card or sport a generic reflector. My favorite was always the aluminum can on the back tire. But I digress. Now it’s all about LEDs. This moving endorsement of Obama comes from a Flickr user that used six SpokePOV kits to turn his bike wheel into an awesome, illuminated Obama sign. Now he can campaign for his candidate just by riding his bike. If you want to make your own, all of the .dat files necessary to reproduce the effect are available on Aneel’s Flickr site. You can customize it to endorse whichever candidate you want. Pretty neat.

It displays when the fan is switched on. Great way to give yourself important reminders or if you share the computer, type in something funny so your friend will see it. This has got to be the most pointless gadget of the week. Whatever message you choose, your hand will be covering it up for the price of $35.

Programmable scrolling LED belt buckle thing

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on October 20th, 2008

Programmable scrolling LED belt buckle thingThese days you want a unique way to display important messages. Something quiet but easily seen. The programmable scrolly LED badge is just the thing. It’s a pocket-sized gadget that goes with you anywhere. You can store up to 6 messages, one of which can have up tp 512 characters and the rest can have up to 256 characters.

That should be more then enough capacity to tell those around you anything you want. I would recommend sitting in the front of a crowded movie theater and letting those behind you know just what you think about the steaming pile on the screen. As you can see from the picture, it’s a belt buckle too.
