Bombshell Greens

Posted: 26 Nov 2010 02:33 AM PST

The Peaceful Bomb Vase reminds me of the Seedbomb project, which had a similar intent. The only difference that Seedbomb was peaceful bombing of seed-capsules to mother earth and the Peaceful Bomb Vase a showcase of the harvested treasures. The vase is a part of the design team Biaugust’s Peace Collection and apparently a part of the proceeds go to Biaugust’s cause A.N.S.W.E.R. (Act Now to Stop War & End Racism). Love this explosion!

Designer: Biaugust [ Buy it Here | Peaceful Bomb Vase is available for $52 @ The YD Store ]

Sunlight VS Pixel Power

Posted: 26 Nov 2010 12:11 AM PST

Sunglasses, the coolest thing since sliced bread, are about to get a wild revamp. Designer Chris Mullin presents “Electronic Sunglasses,” a concept for blocking the sun not all at once, but in a targeted manner, creating not just a blocked vision, but a modified one. These glasses have what Mullin calls a “glare shield” that reacts to and follows bright light sources inside the glasses area, blocking it to a degree that will potentially change the way you see the world, letting you see straight forward when otherwise the sun would force you to blink.

These glasses work by putting in front of your eyes a liquid crystal display that’s got the ability to detect and block the brightest lights in your field of vision. These glasses do such a thing by darkening the pixels in the area the light is coming through the lenses. Simple enough. This process of pixel darkening happens faster than you can see, says Mullin, so don’t worry about any lag. All the electronics are stored within the frames (the style of which will get a make-over once the project gets funding) and rechargeable batteries fit in the right-side ear-bar.

Now check it out, because it’s not often that this happens: not only is this project on its way to becoming a reality, but you can help in a very real way, and get something neat in return! You know about the site by the name of KickStarter? Well you do now: [Electronic Sunglasses on KickStarter] – get over there and throw down some consideration for a cool dude.

The Best Pocket Cam, Flip UltraHD Review

Posted: 26 Nov 2010 12:10 AM PST

Once upon a time pocket cams were poor substitutions for the real thing but those days are over. Flip, one of the originators, still sits on top as providing the best all around pocket cams. Still in its sleek package and ridiculously simple UI, the Flip UltraHD, as its name implies, shoots 720p video at 60 fps. The image stabilization is better than any competitor and at $149, provides the best bang for your buck. Hit the jump for our review.

What we loved:

  • So affordable
  • 4 colors (black, white, blue, purple or design your own free skins)
  • 4 or 8 GB good for 2 hrs of HD video
  • 720p at 60 fps
  • Image stabilization
  • Really sharp screen
  • Rechargeable battery

What could be improved:

  • The flip-out USB plug is awkward

Designer: Cisco (Buy it here $149.00)

All Wood iPhone Amplifier

Posted: 26 Nov 2010 12:03 AM PST

Uh oh, look at this little beauty. Just what the doctor ordered. Need to listen to some fabulous banjo music but your electronic amp broke? No problem, just dunk your iPhone into this baby right here. It’s an iPhone dock that fits snugly around your precious smartphone and amps up the tunes with simple science. Through these two precision cut holes the music will bounce louder than they came. Very luxuriously done!

The people at Koostik aren’t messing around. They had one fantastic concept – to amplify the sounds of the iPhone with no electronics at all. What a challenge, and what a solution. Look at these lovely creations, available in multiple wood combinations. Watch the video for an instant understanding of the whole project.

Designer: Koostik

A Seat for All Cool Jazz Readers

Posted: 26 Nov 2010 12:03 AM PST

DEDE DextrousDesign you guys did it again! This time it’s a completely amazing two-in-one chair that not only allows you to sit, but it takes care of your books as well. How? There’s no shelves or anything! Ah, but there is. Right behind your butt. There you can slip in a magazine or two, or maybe even a short novel. Then if you’re reading something very interesting but must take a short snack break, you can use the gap under your forearm to hold your page. Glorious!

I don’t know what it is, something about this chair makes me think of smooth jazz flutes just jamming out a little bit while I read my book in a coffee shop. You know where these chairs would work out really well? Probably that same coffee shop. Man that’d be beautiful.
