Steampunk Telephone: 1890 Called, They Want Their Phone Back!

Written by Mostafa Dafer on . Posted in Design & Creativity, Featured

"If you have an aversion to modern technology and it’s lack of style and sophistication, then check out this Victorian era replica phone. It should go perfectly with your other Steampunk decor. It’s a replica of an 1892 L.M. Ericsson model, but the rotary dial has been changed to push-buttons, with the center being a dedicated redial button. And even though it isn’t necessary, the magneto generator crank really turns. The cord even resembles that fabric-covered material they used to use Read more [...]

Decypher Watch, Easier Than You’d Think!

Written by Mostafa Dafer on . Posted in Featured, Gadgets

Design submitted by Lloyd from Australia. Lloyd says: This watch design is called “Decypher”. The display may look mysterious at first, but is actually very easy to decipher once you know the trick behind it. The watch face displays four figures, each with a lot of random-looking lines and triangles stuck on them all over the place. I tried staring at the image and trying to read off what time it was, before giving up and just peeking at the bottom of the image to read it off: 15:23. Here’s Read more [...]

3D Mirror: Release Your Inner Beast! Snow White Is Sci-fi After All!

Written by Mostafa Dafer on . Posted in Entertainment & News, Featured

"People have always had a fascination with the extraordinary: unicorns, fairy tales, dwarves, princesses, and magic mirrors. And somehow, the latter is slowly becoming a reality, although they’re not really magical in that sense. We’ve already seen what augmented reality mirrors can do to our faces, and while they can be used to correct or modify certain features, they can’t change our faces completely. However, artist Karolina Sobecka wants to change that, and change it she Read more [...]

Mouserugs: Tiny Carpets for Your Mouse!

Written by Mostafa Dafer on . Posted in Entertainment & News, Featured

I’ve never bought a mouse pad. Not only are most of them kitschy, I barely even need one because even my cheap optical mice works on different surfaces. That said, I would still like to get a Mouserug for my trusty Logitech. It’s the least I can do for its years of service. Mouserugs look a lot like the actual thing because they’re basically miniature scale models of fancy oriental rugs. FiberLok, the company who makes them, photographs and scans actual rugs as the basis for their product. Read more [...]

Listen To Mother Nature… Literally, Music Out Of Tree Rings!

Written by Mostafa Dafer on . Posted in Entertainment & News, Featured

"Most of us learned when we were children that a tree’s interior rings can tell a lot about it. But thanks to Bartholomäus Traubeck, we can now not simply look at tree rings – we can also hear them. Traubeck’s Years project is a modified turntable that plays slices of trees just like records. There’s a lot of complicated stuff in the project, but the rundown is that it uses a loop-based software music sequencer called Ableton Live to turn those lovely tree rings into even lovelier Read more [...]

"Paralyzed people and amputees could soon stand tall with a Segway-type personal vehicle that would allow them to go anywhere a wheelchair can go. The Chariot is being developed by Exomovere Holdings who hopes that the vehicle would be a direct competitor of scooters and wheelchairs marketed toward elderly, disabled and obese people. More importantly, it’s like a pair of wheeled cybernetic legs that snap on over your own legs, which is pretty rad. Like a Segway, the Chariot uses directional Read more [...]

Charge Your Mobile With Water, the Powertrekk!

Written by Mostafa Dafer on . Posted in Featured, Gadgets

"On the one hand, mobile devices release us from being tethered to one place. For instance, one no longer needs to be connected to a modem to browse the web, thanks to smartphones that are Wi-Fi enabled. On the other, such mobility is of no use if one does not have mobile facilities for charging the devices. Mobile chargers are common, but what if you were on a trek through the Amazon and the battery in your device ran out of charge? If you are willing to pay around $300 (£200), you Read more [...]

POP-UP GARAGE! Park Anywhere Solution!

Written by Mostafa Dafer on . Posted in Entertainment & News, Featured

This has to be one of the coolest gadget/elevator a car enthusiast can have for their prized possession. I don’t really consider it a garage it’s more of an elegant looking lift to say the least but it gets custom built into your driveway and it can hold a car on top of the lift and a car on the bottom of the lift, to get a better picture of what were saying when the lift is down and a car is parked on the lift it will raise in the air to allow accessibility to the car at the bottom.

Written by Mostafa Dafer on . Posted in Featured, Gadgets

But even if you really love art, looking at bowl after bowl of fruit can get a little boring. Artist Scott Garner got bored of those fruit bowls and decided to do something way more interesting with still life: make it less still. Using a flat-screen motion-sensitive display attached to a rotating mount, Garner turned this simple painting into a truly interactive Read more [...]
