Cup Communicator gone hi-tech

November 17, 2006

It’s like the old-school cup and string communicators that would let you talk to a friend 10 feet away through a cup or tin can.
Tug the cord to activate, squeeze to talk and hold to the mouth and ear.The design of the Cup Communicator is focused around a series of physical actions and gestures that create a poetic etiquette of use and a tactile intimacy between user and object. By designing a communication device focused on the gesture of use, the relationship between the users and between the user and object I aim to explore the potential of the product as a medium for interaction and reassess the way we use technology.

And in case you are confused… talking through a cup has become wireless because it has a built-in walkie talkie.

microwave egg cooker

November 17, 2006

Someone actually invented an egg-shaped, microwave egg cooker! (because eggs  explode under pressure). The device fits 3 mid-sized eggs, which are placed on an aluminum tray. Put 130cc of water in the yellow part, insert the tray, place the eggs on it, close the lid (the white part), and pop it in the microwave. 8 minutes in a 500W microwave gets you soft-boiled, 10 minutes gets you hard-boiled.

Why can’t he use hot water like everyone else…
