Shit Box

June 26, 2008

Next time you’re camping, instead of digging a hole, why not infuse a little portability into nature’s call with the Shit Box? 
Shit Box is a portable lightweight cardboard toilet. It is rigid, resuable (comes with 10 degradable poo bags in case you start to imagine something unappetising) and fully biodegradable.

Creative InPerson

February 13, 2008

Creative’s portable InPerson conferencing system consists of a device that resembles a 10-inch laptop, with a wide-angle view VGA-resolution Webcam, running off on 2 hour capacity battery or AC. You can hook it up to your TV for a more life-size conversation. It connects to the Net via Wi-Fi or wired Ethernet, going through Creative’s servers for the video and VoIP audio. You can also stick an SD card in the slot and use it as a really expensive photo frame. USD699.95, and there’s a USD10 per month subscription fee for the Web service.
Why can’t I use my PC webcam or mobile phone instead?

In-Car LED Spotlight

January 3, 2008

I recently bought an LED torchlight for my car, something that most car owners will need. The hassle is to make sure it still has battery juice when there is an emergency.

The LED Spotlight charges via your car’s cigarette lighter and allows you to find all the little bits of detritus and things that manage to fall down the side of the car seat. It comes in a dozen different colors and was runner-up for Best New Interior Accessory prize at SEMA 2007. The Spotlight gives you over an hour’s worth of light on a three-hour charge.

This pair of Bluetooth speakers pair up with any Bluetooth player or cellphone, and their maker says they’re the world’s first completely wireless Bluetooth speakers. Sure, there are plenty of others, but they have a wire between the two speakers, but these have none. You don’t even have to plug them into the wall, either, because they use two rechargeable Li-polymer batteries in each one.  tThe speakers will play up to eight hours, and will sit there on standby for 240, with a recharging time of 3.5 hours. £69.99 (SGD210) for a pair.
