Fujitsu paper-based electronic card for hospitals

Posted in Fujitsu by Conner Flynn on July 12th, 2010

Clocking in or out of an office usually requires a company card that you flash at the entry and exit points of the building. Fujitsu is working on offering a new solution for hospitals that can be used during the check-in process. This solution will connect electronic card holders using electronic paper to a patient navigation system, where it will guide patients to examination rooms or diagnostic testing rooms etc.

Just insert an IC-equipped registration card, and the electronic card holder will automatically link into the medical facility’s electronic patient navigation system and electronic medical record system to ensure the registration process is complete. It will also show outpatients where to go using visual displays and vibration.

Yuento Hand Shredder lets you shred by hand

Posted in Office Gadgets by Conner Flynn on April 7th, 2010

We’ve seen plenty of hand cranked gadgets, but not a one of them has been a paper shredder. Well, the Yuento Hand Shredder needs no electricity. If you want to shred your sensitive documents, just crank away. And if your company has been up to know good and doing bad things, you may get quite a workout.

Otherwise, this cross-cut shredder has a single sheet paper slot only, so it’s just for light shredding duty. There’s also a removable waste drawer to keep things neat. Only $62. It might just exercise your puny limbs.

Recyclable Paper Laptop

Recyclable Paper LaptopMost of us buy a new computer every couple of years. For such a complex product, we go through them very quickly, and you can imagine what that must add up to in e-waste.

Computer companies are already looking to make their products more recyclable, but designer Je Sung Park is taking the idea of a recyclable computer about as far as it can go. His Recyclable Paper Laptop is made from pulp and reprocessed materials, and when you are done with it, it would be broken down into the same.

Guy glues flies to paper airplanes, somewhere PETA cries

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on July 5th, 2009

Some people have strange hobbies. Like this guy who forces innocent flies to carry paper airplanes made out of rolling papers. First he caches the fly and puts it in a plastic bag for safekeeping. Next he makes he plane. Once the plane is done, he “huffs” on the fly several times.(Seemed excessive to us, but to each his own) This is to get the hairs on the flie’s belly to stick to the superglue. Now is it?

After that, creepy dude goes outside with his new airplane toting slave and watches it fly. Other creepiness includes this dude waxing philosophic about that fateful day at Kittyhawk so many years ago. He says he sets them free when he’s done playing with them, but that’s not the same thing as leaving them the hell alone in the first place.

HAL 9000 Papercraft: Cute, still dangerous

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on November 24th, 2008

HAL 9000 Papercraft: Cute, still dangerousIt’s about time HAL had feet, but it may not be the smartest thing to give this unbalanced bot that much mobility. Sure, he’s cute and made of paper, but make no mistake, he still would prefer humans dead. This time it won’t be by shutting off cryogenic chambers and watching humans drift off into space. This time, he’ll use cuteness to get you close and paper cuts to finish you off. If you choose to print and assemble this papercraft version, there will be blood.

E-note concept saves paper

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on October 27th, 2008

E-note concept saves paperThe Post-it note is pretty handy. It’s something that everyone has used at one point or another. Just imagine how many trees it takes to keep us in Post-it notes every year. Whatever the number is, the E-note concept from Sequoia Studio can keep those trees firmly in the ground. It uses tactile and flexible electronic paper technology, and can be stuck and unstuck easily thanks to a “Gecko” glue.

Whether it picks up hair and dirt and becomes useless, we aren’t sure. The E-note is solar powered, giving it enough juice to take care of your message and reminders across before it runs out. It even has a visual alarm, an organizer and the ability to change between 8 different colors. We want this on our desks ASAP.

Black and Decker Studio Shredders get style

Posted in Office Gadgets by Conner Flynn on September 21st, 2008

Black and Decker Studio Shredders get styleEverything has to look stylish now, even the old shredder. The 5 Sheet Crosscut Studio Shredder from Black and Decker might actually look good in your home office and not immediately scream shredder. Looks like they would go well with certain Dell laptops. With a 4″ space saving, slim design you can put it anywhere.

It features sliding feet that stabilize it so it won’t fall over and die. Comes in the black and red. There is a cost to it’s slimness however. It only shreds 5 sheets of paper… Hmmm. Good for the slow or small office then. It retails for $49.99.

Stormtrooper papercraft helmets are a fold above the restPapercraft is all the rage and we’ve seen some pretty cool stuff built into paper versions. This may be one of the coolest things yet. Imagine if you will an army of paper Stormtroopers. That’s scary. Now imagine an army of just their heads. That’s a dark-side nightmare. And it will surely happen when people realize that they can make their own.

You have to download .PDO papercraft files and a papercraft program called Pepakura Designer in to view them. Looks like they are in iPod Nano colors. You can download them here. Just make a bunch in different colors and decorate your room or something.

Rock Paper Scissors League Championship

Rock Paper Scissors League Championship
If you happen to be in Las Vegas this weekend, you might want to check out the 2008 USA Rock Paper Scissors League Championship on June 20 in Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The Champion with the best hand skills will win a $50,000 prize and a ticket to compete in Beijing,China during the Summer Olympics, where they will represent the U.S. in the inaugural International Rock Paper Scissors Federation Championship.

I’ve never been entirely clear on the official rules. It always gets tricky with rock against paper. Paper can wrap around a rock and strangle it, but on the other hand, rock can beat paper to a pulp. Check out the video below. It’s strangely mesmerizing.

Make your own paper R2-D2

Make your own paper R2-D2
A long time ago in a galaxy far away…someone used the Death Star plans to build a paper droid and messed up the whole rebel plan. And so can you, if you have an ink jet printer, some scissors and glue.

It’s pretty accurate for paper, looks pretty awesome, plus it’s articulated. And if you really want to prove your paper droid making skills, you can use vector-based PDF plans to print and build your own life-sized R2 unit, but don’t let the Empire get a hold of the plans.

The Ori-Ori Moshi-Moshi from 2014

The Ori-Ori Moshi-Moshi from 2014
Technologies are being developed right now that will one day replace the paper news dynamic completely. One such concept device is called the Ori-Ori Moshi-Moshi and it is basically origami. Some hope that it will offer the ultimate fold-up multi-media solution.

It was developed by Antenna Design, and they are calling it the “super gadget for the year 2014.” The concept device would have a flexible OLED screen with utilities for gaming, phone, and video viewing. As flexible displays get better, this will be the norm in no time.


Xerox paper will self destruct in 24 hours

Xerox paper will self destruct in 24 hours
Remember the old Mission Impossible, when “this message” would self destruct in 24 hours. It is now a reality at least in paper form, thanks to Xerox. They’ve come up with self-erasing paper that can be used over and over again. Of course that’s great for trees and our environment in general. It’s also great for spys and paranoid types. The paper is not erasable, but self-erasing, leaving you with a completely blank sheet of paper after 24 hours that you can reuse up to 100 times.

The paper contains specially coded molecules that create a print after being exposed to ultraviolet light emitted from a thin bar in a printer. The molecule actually readjusts itself within 24 hours to its original form to delete the print, or applying heat can readjust the molecule instantly. Pretty nifty.


E-mail goes low tech, kills trees

E-mail goes low tech, kills trees
I get way too many emails everyday. Sometimes it’s amazing that I get anything done at all outside of my inbox. It’s insane. I don’t even want to know what it would be like if each email was on a sheet of paper. The stack would be at least 4 feet tall.

That’s why I’m scared of these paper e-mail pads. Now people who wouldn’t normally email me are going to be filling my desk with useless paper e-mails. Just fill in the form like a real email. Each pad comes with 50 sheets, and will cost you $3.99, which is about 8 cents per e-mail. Great way to kill trees and annoy your co-workers. Soon they won’t even talk to you, they’ll just slip a paper on your desk for every little thing.

Inkjet tattoo paper makes you look tough, no pain

Inkjet Tattoo paper makes you look tough, no pain
Want a tattoo but can’t stand the idea of a ink filled needle jabbing you a million times? Well girlly-man, you can rest easy, because now you can just print designs out and have a temporary tattoo. Whether you want the “I’ve been to prison” look, or even if you are a young and loose female wanting a unique tramp-stamp to lure the man-meat, it’s now easy.

Just create your own tattoo design, then once it’s printed you just need to apply an adhesive sheet to the printout and smooth out any bubbles. When you remove the adhesive sheet, the printed tattoo will remain with a sticky surface allowing it to be applied to your skin with a wet sponge. They’re water-based and non-toxic. If you avoid bathing they will stay on you for about a week, otherwise they can easily be removed with soap and water.
