At first read, I thought it cannot be true, it will be so perfect… a wireless optical mouse… with no need for battery, I don’t need the below Sanyo solar powered battery charger anymore.

Then I saw the tail on the mouse…. pad. I was right, the mouse is still not free to roam. The USB mouse pad has to be connected to the PC and using electromagnetic induction to power the mouse. The mouse delivers 800DPI sensitivity and has 7 buttons plus a scroll-wheel and RFID for signal.

A mouse imprisoned in a forceshield… it waits for that one day when it will really be free…

Sanyo Eneloop Solar Charger

October 31, 2006

For 20k YEN, it charges up your rechargable batteries and your USB powered equipments in about 2.5hrs using its built-in lithium ion batteries which themselves are refreshed from the sun. Anything that’s free must be good. Sooo…. what’s the catch? 6days… for the sun to do its magic…

Its a big knob… It turns what it has been sticked to into an MP3 player. It doesn’t need a screen as it announced the songs its playing and has all the basic functions of an MP3 player, synchronizing with your current MP3 program in your PC. I LIKE!

Eclipse light

October 31, 2006

1.5mm stainless steel sheet. Just fold at the connected points to the angle you want to project the light. Unique, simple, saves packaging space thus reducing importing cost. Just need a nice looking lightbulb.

Happy Halloween!

October 31, 2006

Happy Halloween to the world! We don’t really have our Halloween fun in Singapore, especially not trick or treating… We don’t have nice foggy forest like the one above too except for our fast disappearing cemeteries…

Nice way of decorating the path with the lighted pumpkins and making the dead tree living again…

Variety Cabinet

October 30, 2006

 

Beauty is in the details. Nice flower patterns milled on black lacquer with bright 50s flower prints on the inside to complete the design. With wheels too so you can move your clothes around the house to show off…hmmm.

War Bowl

October 30, 2006

These little soldiers used to be my favorite toys when I was a kid. I think it cost SGD3.50 and it comes in a big plastic pack… quantity counts and I had great fun killing the colours I dislike…

A bowl made from melted plastic soldiers from the Battle of Waterloo, half French infantry, half British artillery. See the gruesome figures on the top surface, looking like blue hell, the sufferings… wow, but nice silhouette on th edges… For USD229.00, you get to put your fruits in a bowl of misery…

Random pic of the week

October 30, 2006

The issue of usefulness vesus fugliness and a hint of crappiness…

 

Two girls sketches simple furniture in the air in a studio which captures the action using motion capture and become 3D digital files for editing and viewing in, if I am not wrong, rhino software. These files are then realised in a big rapid prototyping machine.

I see a quick way of making some money… and each one is unique too. Click on link to see quick video of process. 2 thumbs up!

Yalos Diamond

October 29, 2006

 

Yalos Diamond, a 100k, 40 inch LCD TV has provision for 1080i and 720p high definition picture formats with a contrast ratio of 1200:1. The really expensive bit is the workmanship, the design and the fact it’s plated in white gold and studded with 160 diamonds and no visible weld or screws. Even the logo, which is screen-printed, changes colour depending on whether the TV is on or off.

And the remote controller looks like a trophy…
