Nomad Light Molecule

December 16, 2008

Nomad Light Molecule’s shape and position is fully customisable. You can also pick each atom of light from the molecule, and take it with you, where ever you want a light source. When fully recharged, the spheres will give light for approximately 4 hours. When the light starts to faint, simply plug it back on the molecule, so it can recharge.

Mini E

October 30, 2008

The Mini E will be powered by a 150 kW (204 hp) electric motor and fed by a high-performance rechargeable lithium-ion battery, the vehicle will be nearly silent and emissions free. BMW Group says that they will be putting 500 cars on the road under real daily traffic conditions which will make it possible to gain widely applicable hand-on experience.

Based on the current Mini model, the car will initially be available as a two-seater. (The space in the back seat will initially be taken up by the lithium-ion battery.) The battery can be plugged into all standard power outlets.

The Mini E’s styling is a bit different. A specially designed logo in Yellow, depicting a power plug in the shape of an “E” is set against a silver backdrop. It will be applied to the roof, the front and back, and the charger port lid.

Bic Disposable Phone

August 14, 2008

When I hear the name Bic, cheap pens come to mind. Now Bic, in partnership with the mobile operator Orange, it has just launched a rechargable ‘disposable’ mobile that has been loaded with the SIM card and 60 minutes of talktime, which should be used in up to 2 months.

The design is not all that great (hardware by Alcatel) but what do you expect from a disposable and its main and only functions are to make and receive calls, and listen to radio. It comes in two colors (green lemon and orange) and the number that comes with the unit is valid for only 12 months.
Good when on the run or for that day when you left your phone at home…

Toyota Winglet

August 3, 2008

Toyota’s new Winglet comes in three sizes and is a human transporter just like the Segway. The biggest model is the most Segway-like, with its tall handlebars and two wheels. The smallest, however, has no handlebars at all, but supposedly toting you around on just a small moving platform.
Toyota scheduled the start of production at 2010. Consumer testing will begin as early as this fall, in a marine resort complex in Aichi prefecture (central Japan) and at Nagoya airport.

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.
