Cool Leaf button-less flat input devices

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on March 3rd, 2010

Cool Leaf is an input system that is both flat and mirrored. It comes from a Japanese company called Minebea who have demonstrated it with a keyboard, calculator, and remote control that are all completely free of keys.

Sure they look amazingly futuristic, but they also make a lot of sense. The devices would be easier to clean with no keys that will gather dust and crumbs. Minebea has done a great job. The devices have backlights, force sensors, and a film from a company called Toray Industries that is the world’s first “electrostatic capacity type touch panel and a load sensor.”

Joseph Joseph Fold Flat Kitchen GraterThe grater is an essential kitchen tool. But there are so many essential kitchen tools, that putting them all away and keeping the kitchen neat can be hard. Graters have always been a problem. Their squarish form is great for food prep, but not for storage in the cabinet.

Well, that just changed thanks to this Fold Flat Kitchen Grater from Joseph Joseph. It does what it says and folds flat for easy storage. There’s even a grip handle on the side for grating over food. The Fold Flat Grater features coarse stainless steel blades and is dishwasher safe.

Flat Light Bulbs are not bulbs at all

Flat Light Bulbs are not bulbs at allLight bulbs are…well bulbous. They take up way too much room, are a pain to store due to their shape, etc. Those newer corkscrew deals are no better. It’s an old design for an old world. That’s why Joonhuyn Kim’s concept makes sense. Flat bulbs take up less space and make them easier to stack, store and transport. My only concern is that the odd shape would somehow make the light all weird on the wall. Great idea even if it is a bit late to the lighting arena.

Resealable Can: No more flat sodas

Resealable Can: No more flat sodas
You have to drink soda pretty fast so it doesn’t go flat, right? Not anymore. Not everyone can finish the can. It’s either drink the flat beverage or be wasteful. Ukranian inventor Johan De Broyer is a man with a love of carbonated beverages and a dream. He has come up with a neat way to re-seal cans.

His idea opens up new possibilities in advertising too. You pop the top as usual, then when you want to re-seal it, just turn the pop top tab and it completely closes up the can. That wouldn’t mean squat if it were just an enclosure, but Johan claims his invention can create a completely gas-tight and liquid-tight seal. Advertisers should love the fact that they can take advantage of the resealed top.
