  • Fiat Lux Lamp with floating on/off orb wins lamp design of the decade.
    by Mike
    Posted December 29th, 2009 at 2:10 pm
    Of all the lighting fixture/lamp concepts and designs I've seen, the Fiat Lux Lamp designed by Constance Guisset and Grégory Cid easily takes the crown for coolest, most innovative lamp design of the decade -- the next decade. Some may see this admission as coming a wee bit early seeing as how the next decade doesn't start for a couple more days. Even still, though I already know how fast technology does in fact progress and evolve, I'm left wondering how anyone can top the Fiat Lux design fo...
  • The wall outlet of tomorrow: stylish, convenient, and functional.
    by Mike

    Wall outlets -- what exactly can we say? It's a hole in the wall from which electrons spew forth when the appropriate (and sometimes inappropriate) material is inserted. How could technology and society actually make it better? Enter the world transformed with the Rambler Socket. For starters, who says technology and mundane things such as wall outlets have to be ugly and unsightly? The Rambler is quite the looker. Just because it looks good doesn't mean it shouldn't be functional. Th...
  • “iTablet” to feature iPhone OS or full blown OS X? Portability and apps or power and expandability?
    by Mike

    I stumbled on a thought provoking article on MacDailyNews that really got my mental juices flowing... iPhone OS Looking at the title above and taking into account the various bits of information surrounding a so called Apple tablet that has been beaten and flogged across the digital waves the last year would lead most to believe that any actual device would feature an iPhone-esque OS. I mean, why not? If you want to keep things simple and battery friendly while also tapping into the app st...
  • Keystick Keyboard the ultimate multi-functional, ultra portable keyboard.

    Fans and keyboards go together like beef noodles and ranch dressing. Hmmm yummy. While gadgets coming out of Japan often have rather unique and sometimes downright weird uses and styles, there's no denying that they're at least thought provoking. Mobile computing power users may at times need a portable keyboard to go along with them for the wide. We've seen various roll-style keyboards before that are soft, flimsy, and flexible offering up all kinds of options for transporting them. This K...
  • The xPhone will decimate all mobile devices! [Video]
    by Mike

    Having as many things as you can think of crammed into one device seems like a gift from above. But often times, such gadgets often suffer from "jack of all trades, master of none" syndrome in that no single feature stands out for being amazing. A phone stuffed with a bajillion mediocre features is far from exciting and in fact quite frustrating and disappointing. Thankfully we can always dream about the "xPhone" -- a do it all, no compromises mobile device that fits everything inside. Hell,...
  • The future smartphone/MID: The T-Glove
    by Mike
    Posted December 1st, 2009 at 4:05 am
    While talking about there here and now in the gadget world is certainly worthwhile and exciting, looking ahead into the future of geekdom is in my opinion just as exciting and at times more exciting. Letting our minds wonder with what could be allows for some truly amazing concepts -- wonderful concepts such as the T-Glove. This do-it-all wonder gadget is a astronaut-like wrist device that combines a phone, MID, GPS, and more all within easy reach of five of your most precious digits. With th...
  • Phase shifting roofing tiles save money, look cool.
    by Mike
    Posted November 30th, 2009 at 2:41 pm
    What would you say if I said your roof could be so much better? Why am i asking you about your roof on a tech blog? If you thought there was nothing cool about such things, think again. The roof above our head is a grossly outdated piece of human existence that has remained unchanged for decades. That's all about to change with the Thermeleon roofing tiles. What's so special? These futuristic phase-change polymer gel-filled tiles developed by MIT students for the MIT MADMEC (Making and Des...
  • Camper trailers are cool again: C3 Hotel Cube
    by Mike
    Posted November 23rd, 2009 at 8:12 am
    If I ever thought I would hear someone say that a "camper" could be cool, I would have chuckled and laughed at that individual, convinced that this person was a few fries short of a happy meal. Now if they were talking about the C3 Hotel Cube (designed by Jianbo Huang & Ting Zhao), I would agree -- campers are cool again. As is standard with pretty much any concept vehicle, future tech rains in on several fronts. From electronically controlled glass to dual action stove/refrigerator to pull ...
  • “Laserwalks” to save humans, vaporize ignorant drivers?
    by Mike
    Posted November 19th, 2009 at 12:19 pm
    Nothing says hi-tech and "futuristic" like a good 'ol fashioned laser beam (even better when attached to shark heads.....) As more people take to the streets on foot, collisions with the metal giants that are automobiles increases. It's a sad part of life. Technology is a great thing that makes the world go round more efficiently. Why not use that technology in new and innovative ways? Introducing the "Laser Walk". The point of the Laser Walk is to first and foremost replace traffic ligh...
  • OS Calculator concepts entice my inner geek
    by Mike
    Posted November 4th, 2009 at 1:56 pm
    Throughout school and even now, math is probably my least favorite subject. In fact, I would even go as far to say that I avoid it. Why do I hate numbers so? No sure. It's just a feeling I've always had. Kind of strange really. Many in the tech/digital field usually have a fairly good grasp of math and all that it offers. Why I got left out is anybodies guess. Maybe if I had the OS X calculator I would have done better. Meh, there's no hope for me. But these concept OS calculators by...
  • PURL: Filling your tires and illuminating your path [Concept]

    Cyclists know that space is at a premium. If you're on a long trip, carrying excess, unneeded baggage slows you down and tires you out quicker. Why go through the hassle? One tool any cyclist wants to have at all times is that of a tire pump. Keeping your bike tires properly inflated can mean the difference between a good day and a bad day. A second tool essential to the road warriors bag-o-tools is a light. Many riders take to the roads at night. As such, their bodies and machines aren...
  • HTC “Book” UI coming to a smartphone near you?
    by Mike
    Posted October 30th, 2009 at 12:01 pm
    Companies get ideas, services, and products patented everyday. If it's an idea, they may never even implement or use it in any current or future products. They're protecting themselves. Because of this, we can't take every patent we see literally or as if it is "set in stone" but instead more as "suggestions" as what could be coming in the future. With touchscreen's the new "it" feature on dumbphones, featurephones, and smartphones alike, distinguishing yourself from the playing field that...
