‘Blown Up’ lighting

October 9, 2006

Wow… lightbulbs that look like tiny inflatable animals floating on sticks… now I can stare at it until I go blind…

Glass blown lights combining the skills of the glassworker and the playfulness of clowns and children’s entertainers.

USB hub with a twist

October 9, 2006

Its a USB hub. It has four ports, and it twists around 360 degrees.

Great isn’t it? Now you don’t have to force your cables to go in one direction or you can make your table even more messy with cables going in four different directions.

The poor French. Close to 50% of homes in France do not yet have a PC and almost 60% do not have internet access. The two main barriers they claim are the complexity of computer systems and the cost of buying a PC.

 The French ISP firm Neuf Cegetel has launched its new internet access plan called Easy Neuf, in conjunction with its new cheap computer, the Easy Gate. The service is available for €39.90 per month. The Easy Gate accessories (mouse, keyboard, monitor, webcam) are available in a package starting at €99. Nice lunch box.

Shoe Pure

October 9, 2006

We are from the planet eggnog… we come in peace… to show our sincerity, we are willing to lick your boots…

Looking like a cross between an egg, a kettle and two dildos, this cheap plastic egg will disinfect, deodorize and dry your shoes using ozone and 70 watts of electricity. Shoe Pure they call it, weighs about 2 bunches of bananas and is a feet tall, will make your shoes smell good in 10 to 30 minutes, depending on how long you set the alien egg timer. It’s 11,800 yen for strange egg.
