• TX Pilot Ghost Edition Puts An Apparition On Your Wrist

    TX Pilot Ghost Edition Puts An Apparition On Your Wrist

    Despite the name, the TX Pilot Ghost Edition wasn’t intended for Halloween.  Instead, the stunning all-white timepiece looks like a spooky apparition fit for a stylishly-dressed ghost.  That means you.  In case you’ve already died and are haunting us right now.  Woooo. Engineered in the same way as the aeronautically-inspired TX Pilot watches from early in the year, the Ghost Edition easily sets itself apart due to its powdery looks.  The matte white finish is blinding, almost like you just [...]

    A-Stand Turns PVC Pipes Into Ergonomic Laptop Stand

    The sexiest laptop stand I’ve seen the whole year is made from…PVC pipes. Huh? That’s right.  The A-Stand from AIAIAI Lab takes regular plumping tubes and fashions them into a hip-looking notebook accessory, managing to look more unique than any of the stands you can find at the shelves of your favorite computer store. Based on a design by Dan Steingart, the cleverly-connected tubes feature a practical design that sits your laptop at eye level for better ergonomics.  No different [...]

  • Atari Lunar Lander Turned Into A Real-Life, Moving Parts Game

    Atari Lunar Lander Turned Into A Real-Life, Moving Parts Game

    You’ve never really played Lunar Lander till you play it in analog.   And that’s what the Real-Life Lunar Lander Replica does, which brings the 1979 Atari classic into a physical box with real moving parts. Created by British engineer Iain Sharp, the contraption was built to honor the 40th anniversary of man’s first landing at the moon.  Like the original game, the player must attempt to settle a lunar module on the moon’s surface, with success determined by both descent [...]

  • Pocket Light Lets You Keep A Light Bulb In Your Pocket, Perfect For Eureka Moments

    Pocket Light Lets You Keep A Light Bulb In Your Pocket, Perfect For Eureka Moments

    Why pack a flashlight in your back pocket when you can slip a light bulb into your wallet?  That’s exactly what will happen with the Pocket Light, a concept gadget that puts a working, low-powered bulb inside  a credit card-sized slab. Created by Ryan Harc, the design won a bronze medal at last year’s Koizumi Lighting Awards.  While I’m not sure how powerful of an illumination it delivers, it looks decent enough to offer some amount of brightness when you’re [...]

  • Pocket Wall Adds Storage Units To Your Wallpaper

    Pocket Wall Adds Storage Units To Your Wallpaper

    When I was in high school, I taped up numerous envelopes to my wall and used them to hold various documents, including term papers, college applications and such.  The Pocket Wall, a decorative wallpaper that integrates storage units, does something similar, adding plenty of holes and slots for fitting a whole bunch of your stuff in. Designed by Maja Ganszyniec, it doesn’t look half-bad as a wall wrapping.  The extra storage capabilities makes it a lot more useful than regular [...]

    Tattoo Socks Puts Fake Tattoos On Your Stockings, Doesn’t Look Lame At All

    I always thought tattoo sleeves were lame.  These Tattoo Socks, on the other hand, are just plain gorgeous.  For some reason, they manage to look like snazzy body decoration than lame skin art posturing.   On the right pair of legs, they’re just a hands-down knockout. Just like regular leg stockings, they’re available in thigh-high and knee-high lengths, each one toting a very cool-looking graphic right around the calves on one side.  According to designer Gabby, you can wear the tights [...]

    Happy Halloween-My Zombie Pin-Up Puts Sexy Zombie Models On Your 2010 Calendar

    What better way to start Halloween Day posts and prepare for the zombie apocalypse than learning to love the wenches among them?  It’s not like you’re going to have much of a choice when the infestation spreads, after all.  My suggestion for a first indoctrination is to trade in your wall calendar for the My Zombie Pin-Up, a 2010 calendar filled with sexy images of scantily-clad zombie models. Clad in 50s-style pin-ups in the tradition of Gil Elvgren’s photographs, the [...]

    Giant Mona Lisa Now On Display And You Can Step On Its Face

    That, right there, is a photo of the world’s largest reproduction of Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa and you can totally step on its face.  Awesome. On display at the Eagle’s Meadow shopping center in Wales, the collaborative artwork was put together by dozens of people from various community groups and the local Wrexham schools.  The project was spearheaded by artist Katy Webster, a recent fine arts graduate from the North Wales School of Art and Design at Wrexham’s Glyndwr University.

    If having your wife and your mother-in-law barking at you from the passenger seats of your car aren’t enough distractions, you might soon be able to add a robot in there too.  That’s if AIDA, short for Affective Intelligent Driving Assistant, ends up making its way to future vehicles. Created by a collaboration from the MIT SENSElab, the MIT Media Lab’s Personal Robots Group and the Volkswagen Group of America’s Electronics Research Lab, AIDA is a high-tech navigation system that [...]

    Air Board, A Hovercraft That’s A Little Picky About Its Surfaces

    In the future, we’ll all be riding hovercrafts.  In the meantime, however, you’re going to have to settle for the Air Board, a slightly-hovering mobility device that looks like an oversized lawn mower. Remember those “hovercrafts” they used at the Sydney 2000 Olympics?  This is it.  With plenty of surface restrictions and bulky as hell, it’s not exactly the most convenient ride either.  But, hey – it’s a taste of the future all the same. Looks amazing fun though. The [...]

    Electronic Rock Guitar Shirt Puts Six-String Sounds On Your Clothing

    Why strap a heavy guitar around your neck when you can wear it on your shirt?  Sure, the Electronic Rock Guitar Shirt doesn’t bring along a real six-string, but you won’t know that when you hear it play. Yep, it really plays.  Strum it by waving the included magnetic pick (it comes with two, since all rock stars lose picks a lot) over the body, all while pressing down on specific areas of the fretboard.  It can only play all [...]

The Global Green Challenge is a bi-annual race that pits different “green vehicles” against each other in a race to the finish.  The last several events have been dominated by Dutch utility Nuon, who has won the competition four [...]

    In A World Without Trays, The Link Mug Is King

    When you’re serving more than two cups of coffee, it’s obvious you need to use a tray.  If you like making things difficult, though, you can opt for these Link Mugs, a set of three coffee mugs that stick to each other so you can carry them with two hands. In a world without trays, this clever little mug will be King.  Since we have trays in this planet, though, I find it just a little bit unnecessary.  Not that [...]

Able to detect moving targets with a full 360 degrees field of view, the radar can catch potential enemies  at distances of up to 80 feet.  Of course, the Moving Target Indicator (MTI) will turn up everything that moves, so soldiers will probably [...]

    Booq Viper Rush Laptop Case Turns Into A Work Desk On Your Lap

    Laptop cases are supposed to carry your notebook, along with fitting in a few other pieces of business crap.  Booq’s shoulder-worn laptop case, however, goes beyond that, turning itself into a veritable workspace. Literally a desk in a box, the Booq Viper Rush looks like any regular, semi-rigid notebook bag.  Open it up, though, and it reveals a well-planned interior setup that offers plenty of storage space for all your electronic and professional accessories, along with a dedicated laptop area.

That’s not even the best part.  The frames come with interchangeable red and blue lens, allowing you to switch them with your regular prescription ones (yep, they’ll do the normal lens, too, as part of your order) when [...]

    Banks iQ Dashboard Computer Provides Diagnostics And Controls, Plays Media Too

    Most in-dash computer systems come pre-installed on vehicles.  Even then, few of them are all that great.  The new Banks iQ dashboard computer changes all that, offering a self-contained, full-featured system you can throw into any existing car (considering Banks Power’s customer base, though, it will most likely be diesel trucks). While it naturally offers precise control for the aftermarket performance add-ons that Banks produces (e.g. tuners and exhaust brake systems), the personal vehicle interface also lets you run instant [...]
