Once upon a time, desktop computer looks like a big metal box. In my memory, it’s probably a metal box for 20years and only started to be different like 2 years ago.

HP Firebird with Voodoo DNA looks like a part of Gundam and has an Intel Core 2 Quad CPU, twin NVIDIA GeForce 9800S graphics cards in an SLI configuration, 2 hot-swappable 320GB hard drives, Blu-ray, Bluetooth, 802.11n WiFi and an advanced thermal management system to keep things cool and quiet.

ASUS Foldable PC Chassis

November 9, 2008

No idea why we need a foldable PC chassis. But if for some reason you do, then rejoice as the ASUS Vento TA-F series can twist into a compact flat shape that takes up a mere 70 percent of its original space. Available in black or silver, once open it becomes just another chassis with four 5.25-inch and four 3.5-inch internal bays, excluding one for the floppy disk drive (which most people use as a memory card reader slot instead).

Sensory Lamp Mousepad

January 30, 2008

The lights of the lamp mimic natural day cycles, stimulating our sight. The smell of the grass within the lamp, along with the act of nurturing the plant allows the office to be less removed from activities and senses that have been proven to enhance creativity and productivity. By having a mouse pad attached, the sensory lamp stays close to you, allowing interaction. In a step towards the office of the future, the Sensory Lamp takes us back to nature.

The consumer version doesn’t need to be installed in a wall and doesn’t need to be professionally installed by someone.

The concept is the same: a strip allows you to modularly plug in a bunch of gadgets. Each plug slides up and down the strip so you can position it the way you want. You can even remove plugs if you don’t need so many. Eubiq has a safety feature on each of them that makes it so you can shove your finger inside as much as you want and not be electrocuted. The plug needs to go in and twist to make contact with the sides of the track to reach the live wire (your finger will only hit ground).
