December 30, 2006

The Zgiga TV 2 is a concept hyrbid TV/shelf unit that combines the TV with a multi-format Blu-ray/HD DVD player called the Zgiga Cube (in black). Designed by Ori Takemura, the Zgiga TV 2 just won this year’s red dot design award in the design concept category. Made of wood and simple. I might get bored…

PLEIO MP3 Player

This MP3 player is suppose to displays album art in a circle on the front. It is like viewing the front of the CD as it’s spinning away in your player. Other than that, its a normal 128mb player. Then again, its not really normal to create an LCD or OLED with a hole in it…

Inkless Metal Pen

December 30, 2006

An abnormally happened on the 29th of December… there was no posting! Why? The big earthquake did it… yup… technogad was running but the images are not uploadable… Look how much we have relied on the internet…

This stainless steel Metal Pen writes on most paper using the metal “nib” on the tip. The pen works by leaving bits of the metal alloy on most surfaces. Once the pen does “dry up” (after all the writing, it will be blunted), you’ll have to get a new one but it last longer than a pencil. £14.99, its nice to have it as an emergency… but still can’t help when the submarine cables breaks.
