Sustail Wind-up Mouse

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on December 10th, 2009

Sustail Wind-up MouseLooking for a mouse that looks and acts like an old wind-up toy? One that might even do away with the battery problems of wireless mice? Well, this is one way to go. And it looks like an actual mouse too.

The Sustail Wind-Up Mouse winds up using the key, which is stored underneath when not in use. You’ll hear a distinct sound when it’s fully “charged”. Looks like a happy meal toy for a techie kid.

Time Your Light conceptWhen the apocalypse comes. Not if, but when, you are going to want a reliable light. Your home will have no power by which to defend yourself from robots or zombies. You’ll want the Time Your Light concept.

It gets its power mechanically, working like a windup doll. Just give it a twist and you have light. But is this just a timer with a light or a light with a timer? We just hope it doesn’t tick and give you away with typical wind up noise.

Remote Control that winds up

Remote Control that winds up
There are many eco-friendly gadgets that wind up. But having a remote that winds up to charge the battery is the best idea yet. How many batteries have your various remotes killed over the years. And it’s a pain replacing them. Some are AA some are AAA. Sometimes you only have one good battery and the thing takes two!

Well a wind up remote like this eliminates all of that hassle. Just wind the dial and 30 full turns is enough to provide a full charge, which should last you about a week. Supposedly it works with hundreds of brands, including Samsung, Sony, Phillips, Panasonic so it should have you covered. It costs $39 but will pay for itself quickly by never needing batteries.
