Street Headphones let you customize text on the headband

Posted in Headphones by Conner Flynn on March 7th, 2010

You don’t see this kind of design on headphones everyday. It’s called the Street Headphone. It has a laser sintered polyamide outer shell, which is created using the rapid manufacturing process. That means you can personalize your own outer shell with something custom etched.

It can be lyrics, your name, or whatever you want others to read. The only problem is the price. The headphones will cost you about €833 (or $1,140). Some people don’t spend that much on a TV. But if you are in love with the idea, then go for it. Hopefully they last longer than most headphones for that price.

The Kindle is great for when you need larger fonts, but what if you require huge ginormous fonts? Well, thet’s what your TV is for. The Wireless Page To TV Magnifier scans the written words and sends them wirelessly to your television set in real time.

It can magnify them up to 25X for easy viewing of extremely fine print. It would come in very handy when dealing with lawyers. The handheld scanner picks up every detail of a picture or every letter of a word and transfers data to the base station which is plugged into your TV. Then it sends it to your screen.

Translator glasses: See what other people are saying

Posted in NEC by Conner Flynn on November 2nd, 2009

Translator glasses: See what other people are sayingA device that automatically translates other languages instantly still seems like science fiction, even today. But we are getting very close. Check out NEC’s Tele Scouter. It’s a retinal-display that translates what people say to you by displaying the translations as text on your glasses.

It looks pretty bulky still, but even at that size it is impressive. It requires a computer to be hooked up to the glasses to do the bulk of the work. And even then, the translations aren’t good enough yet to make wearing this thing practical. But soon it will be.

cherple-logo-sbI don’t like to send many text messages on my cell phone. I do it on occasion, but I don’t like the small keyboard and would rather just call and talk to someone than text them. My wife on the other hand likes to text and sends me lots of messages throughout the day.

JAJAH turns your iPod Touch into an iPhoneThis is a lot like Truphone, which we told you about in December. Leading IP telecommunications company JAJAH has announced a complete overhaul of the iPod Touch. They want to turn the device into a fully functional iPhone.

The new capabilities will enable carriers and non-carriers to launch the service under their own brand and provide customers with the ability to make low-cost phone calls and send SMS text messages to any phone in the world from their iPod Touch. Consumers would only need a Wi-Fi connection, no SIM card or contract. This is big news, what with the iPod Touch being one of the most popular consumer devices in the world.

Scantoaster puts the Internet onto your bread

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on September 11th, 2008

Scantoaster puts the Internet onto your breadWhen you think about it, it’s kind of weird that toast is such a hugely popular food. I mean it’s basically burnt bread that’s ready to crumble in your hands. What’s weirder are all the new ways we’ve found to enjoy toast. We can even make it in our PC’s and decorate it with a frakken cylon. The Scan Toaster printer concept takes it all a step further, from designer Sung Bae Chang.

Details are a bit thin, but it connects to the internet via USB and can print images or text on bread using a flexible “module” unit heated by a wire. What it means is that you could read the news on the very breakfast that you eat. The Scan Toaster concept was a finalist in the 2008 Electrolux Design Lab competition. Sadly, it may be awhile before it hits the kitchen.

Solar-powered bra with drinkable cups

Solar-powered bra with drinkable cups
Here’s the latest wacky concept from Japan. A solar-powered bra that’s eco-friendly. Forget the fact that it looks like someone glued a display onto a piece of astroturf. The solar panel on the waist powers a scrolling LED display above, so you can display a message, about how dorky you look. It can also power other devices.

Here’s the really strange bit. It has reusable liquid containers in the cups, because they want to discourage the use of aluminum cans. The upshot is that you would increase your bust size…Until you get thirsty.

SIM card reader reads deleted text messages on your cell
A New York company named BrickHouse Security wants to add a little spice to your marriage. The kind of spice that might get your stuff thrown out onto the lawn via a $150 SIM card reader that can read deleted text messages.

BrickHouse President Todd Morris wants you to know that once you delete a text message, they are not gone forever. He also wants you to be able to see your spouses or your kids deleted text messages to make sure there’s no funny business going on. Hell, $150 is probably cheaper then hiring a PI. So it’s either this, or go on that Cheaters show and show the world what a cheating sack of dung your spouse is.

D:Scribe: send texts & emails from your pen

D:Scribe: send texts & emails from your pen
How do you update the pen? It’s been around for centuries, but hasn’t really changed in awhile. Well, one way to update it is to integrate texting and email. The D:Scribe is a design concept from Reuben Png. Similar to Bluetooth pens, it will track as you write, then just circle the person’s name and the text or email is sent digitally via a Bluetooth phone.

You can also access everything you’ve written later because it’s all stored in the pen. The message status is shown on a OLED screen. The pen has always been mightier then the sword, and now it will have texting as well.
