Portable Spider Pocket Speaker E500

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on January 19th, 2011

If you like to listen to your music on the go, from a speaker rather than headphones, then the Spider Pocket Speaker E500 can help. It’s a battery powered portable speaker that will work with almost any music device available.

The speaker uses a 3.5mm headphone jack so it will work with the iPhone, iPods, notebooks and tons of other devices. The internal rechargeable battery will give you about eight hours of playback per charge and the speaker measures just 68.5mm x 68.5mm x 42mm.

Cornered Glass Spider Trap

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on March 29th, 2010

Spiders are icky, creepy and nasty. You have to get them out of your home at all costs. But maybe you don’t want to kill them. After all, it isn’t their fault that they are nasty creepy bugs. So normally you would use a glass to trap them on the wall and escort them outside. But that isn’t possible when they are on the corners of your wall.

This Cornered Glass trap was designed by James Laurie for just such occasions. This way you can still catch it and put it outside.

Four-legged spider bot controlled using Wii Nunchucks

Four-legged spider bot controlled using Wii NunchucksYou know what we need more of? Spider bots. Even if they are four legs short of a full spider. What you see here is a walking machine using only four legs. And we have to say it’s walking is impressive. Should you flip it over, it’s no problem. The legs simply reverse and it walks upside down.

It’s an entertaining little bot to watch. Just beware, if you want to build one, it’s expensive, costing around $1000. The coolest feature though, is that it’s controlled with two sets of modified Wii Nunchucks.

Botropolis: This week in robots

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on August 28th, 2009

Botropolis: This week in robotsWhile you were busy back-to-school shopping, robots have been busy colonizing our world. As usual. We’re so glad that your kid has some new pencils, a fly laptop, a new haircut and a trapper keeper, but that ain’t gonna save us from our future. You need to be putting little Timmy into a John Conner bootcamp so he can learn the fine art of killing things with no souls. Well, you can lead a human to water, but you can’t make him think. Here’s some of what we covered over at Botropolis this week:

Simon: A deceptively cute harbinger of doom.

MIT’s Robot Fish: The seas shall run red with blood. Yours and mine.

Robots Kissing: The revolution won’t be televised, but robot kissing will.

Phasma Insect Robot: A swarm of robot locusts will soon block out the sun.

Philips wireless internet cam concept is creepy, could bite

Philips wireless internet cam concept is creepy, could bite
Here’s a new wireless Philips concept by Flynn Product Design that offers something drastically different and ultra-awesome in a Sci-Fi kind of way. So awesome in fact that you’ll be watching it from the corner of your eye, waiting for it to ponce and suck out your insides.

If spiderwebs suddenly appear near this thing, get rid of it immediately because: A. It’s alive. Or B: It’s attracting little baby spiders that think it’s their mama, who will grow into big spiders. Creepiness aside, this might be the best webcam design yet. Soon spider cams will be no doubt be following us everywhere. I’d like to extend a warm welcome to our new overlords and I’m looking forward to working with you in return for my life.

Spider robots becoming a reality

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on May 4th, 2008

Spider robots becoming a reality
We’ve seen tons of spider robots throughout the years in all kinds of Sci-Fi flicks. Now they’re about ready to head from the big screen to creepy reality. BAE Systems is getting $38 million from the US Army Research Lab to fund the Micro Autonomous Systems and Technology (MAST) consortium; a team of scientists and researchers devoted to developing an “autonomous, multifunctional collection of miniature intelligence-gathering robots that can operate in places too inaccessible or dangerous for humans.”

It has to be some small relief to know that after the robot spiders gain self awareness and kill us, real spiders won’t be safe either. Unless the robot and biological spiders converge…Actually, you know what, none of this is good. It’s a good time to pack your truck for a little apocalypse vacation in the mountains, raise your kid and call him John Connor, then start killing ANYTHING with more then two legs. If it has two legs and an exoskeleton, even.
