Nokia Mobile Phone Collection















I thought I had a fair few mobile phones because I have never thrown any away after using them. I started off with a Nokia 7110 back in 1999 and have kept each phone each year I upgraded. This guy takes mobile phone collections to the extreme though with a reported collection of 101 phones in 2005. I do not know how many phones he actually has, but I can tell its way more then the 7 or so I have.

Talking CD Cases From Pre>Vu














These talking CD cases allow you to record a 60-second message, which can be played back to your heart's content. There's plenty of applications for this, like annoying marketing material, and, um... annoying marketing material.
It was invented by Morag Hutcheon, in order to allow people to listen to 60 seconds of an album before buying it. However, this doesn't seem like it would work because you could only hear part of one track, and record stores would be a mess of noise, with all the clips blurring into one.

Pepper Spray Ring











For personal security a pepper spray ring could be ideal for you. They are created in silver or gold playing and use a replaceable spray canister so that you are protected while out and about. The ring uses pepper spray rated at 2 million SHU and is effective for 2 - 3 seconds at a range of 12 inches. When the spray comes in to contact with a person the attacker will get inflammation of the eye capillaries and other mucous membranes. It is ideal for you to make your escape.

As always, it is a ring that you hope you never need to use. But on the off chance it does come in handy it could help you get away.

AAA Battery Powered Phone




















The phone above is by Wilcom and is shaped like a battery and uses a AAA battery to get its power. The AAA battery can power the phone for 250 hours on standby with about 5 hours of talk time. On the feature side this phone is about as basic as you can get these days. It has no screen, no MP3 player built in, no 3G access and not much else.

I am not sure how a phone like this will fair in the industry. It isnt the type I would go for as I like to have quite a few features packed in to a mobile phone. I am sure it might catch some peoples attention though.

Tempo Wireless Trash Can Saves Files From Deletion














This Tempo design project is a small, recycle bin-like external hard drive that's supposed to save your files from deletion hell. Whenever you delete a file, your OS transfers the file over to Tempo wirelessly, which then keeps the file temporarily until it's out of space. LEDs light up the tempo from the bottom up, which lets you see how full it is at a glance. This one awesome design project that we hope can be birthed in some form or another.

Self Destructing Spy Paper














If you have seen the movie Mission Impossible then you will have seen the self destructing tape which plays what it needs to play and then goes up in a pile of smoke. The self destructing spy paper is a unique idea which doesnt go up in a puff of smoke unfortunately, but does completely dissolve when it gets wet which completely rids the paper of what is written on it. It looks like regular paper but dissolves in just seconds when any liquid is applied. I guess that gets rid of the need of a paper shredder.

New Battery Runs on Same Fuel as Geeks - Sugar









Sony has announced a new fuel-cell battery that runs on glucose. It works by breaking down carbohydrates with enzymes, in much the same way as us humans do. It doesn't seem to be ready for release yet, but the video after the jump shows that it's already capable of powering an MP3 player.
Sony are claiming 50mW per cell, so it's still not very powerful. Even the MP3 player requires a few devices daisy-chained together, so it will be some time before this is portable enough to be practical.

1873 Monocycle Replica Is a Mechanical and Engineering Marvel

1873monocycle.jpg

This monocycle replica from 1873 is an stunning engineering and mechanical feat. Created by a spaniard using 19th Century documentation and old-style handcrafting techniques, it uses a 6.16-foot wheel, with a 238-teeth inner segment, the quality of his work is simply amazing.

This man from Burgos, Spain, created the whole thing by himself, casting the main bronze wheel from a carved oak model. He also used different steel alloys for different parts of the mechanism, depending on the stress they are going to suffer. The saddle's suspension bar was treated in a forge to obtain the necessary elasticity to make it work right.

The bidding starts at $13,000 and given the quality of the work, I would pay that and more (if I had the money, that is.)

Piece of Wood Watch, Gives Us...Time

The Piece of Wood Watch by Angular Momentum looks to be the handiwork of Robinson Crusoe. But unless Crusoe had an abundance of sterling silver and diamonds, we doubt he crafted this watch. Self-winding based upon user movement and water resistant, the Piece of Wood Watch might not be rummaged from a pile of rotting driftwood, but who really wants to wear driftwood, anyway? We're not sure about the price, but we're guessing it's gonna cost you more than coconuts.

Paper-Thin, Flexible Batteries Developed

battery_wideweb.jpg

Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and MIT have developed a battery that uses carbon nanotubes and paper to make a flexible battery that can be cut by scissor and could eventually be printed. The energy density is fair, at about 110mAh/gram, and small prototypes are powerful enough to power small fans. But the flexibility is still the main selling point. Which means these won't make portable CE devices that use molding lithium polymer batteries, like iPods, any smaller.

Emergency Phone Charger for Real Optimists


Murphy's Law is an adage in Western culture that broadly states that things will go wrong in any given situation, if you give them a chance. The book " Murphy's law " issued in 1977 had stunning success. I think that the reason for that is that the world is full of such pessimistic people, as the man, whose name this gloomy law inherited. Serving at Air Force Base, the captain Edward Murphy, investigated the reasons why the planes crash. He came to pessimistic conclusion that if there was only one way to do something wrong, the technologists would find it.

One more of Murphy's laws asserts that if four reasons of possible troubles are eliminated beforehand, there will always be fifth. Certainly, these laws are basically created for pessimists. But I hope you would agree that when you get in a trouble, and you can's find a way out no matter how hard you try, you start to believe that Murphy was somehow right.

I do not offer you to join a special club for pessimists. I just hope it is still possible to avoid such situation, when your telephone with its death breaks your connection with the world right at that moment when you need it the most. Such small portable gadget like emergency phone charger gives you an opportunity to charge the telephone for 2 hours of extra talking time. Thus, if your telephone ran out of charge and interrupted an important conversation when you find yourself far from home, using a single AA battery, you can return it to life and continue the talk.

Different things happen and every day we have to face a lot of difficult situations. After some unpleasant incidents it is difficult to be sure that everything will finally be fine. Still you may use the chance and carry with you Emergency Phone Charger which size is approximately 7cm (H) x 2cm (W) x 2cm (D). It is necessary to be always on the check! It is better to believe in good, and then the laws of Murphy will be left behind!

Contents:

1x Emergency Phone Charger
  • 4x Phone adapter leads

      • Highly portable, instant phone charger.
      • A powerful charging with a single AA battery gives you up to 2 hrs extra talking time.

Sole Mio, a Solar Powered Mouse tested by Dutch Minister













It seems, this time the Dutch have started working on improving the world environment.

Delft University of Technology has tested a solar-powered mouse called Sole Mio, claiming it to be the world’s first mouse powered exclusively by natural light.

Sole Mio requires real sunlight to function properly. The mouse uses 20mA of electricity while active, can store 300mAh onboard, and can charge at a rate of up to 250 mA in full sunlight.

The Minister Cramer of the Ministry for Housing, Spatial Planning and the Environment took part in a user trial of the world’s first exclusively photovoltaic-powered (PV) computer mouse.

The user needs to sit near the window for the user-friendly mouse to get charged whenever required. It can perhaps be charged when not in use.

Shower Head Music Player Cleans And Entertains All At Once

showe_bar.jpg

This concept for a combination shower head/MP3 player definitely falls under the unnecessary gadgets category, but that doesn't make it any less cool or imaginiative. The concept consists of a speaker/charging base/shower head holder mounted to the shower wall while the detachable shower head has control buttons for the MP3 device. While no specifics were given as to how MP3s would be loaded on the device, one would assume an SD card, or similar removable flash media, would be the storage method of choice. If this ever comes out, consider me in, because just looking at it makes me want to start singing in the shower.

The car raced on a 65.8mph average, reaching a top 75.8mph speed. It doesn't seem like a lot, but for a 83.7-pound 10.8-feet-long car running on standard Panasonic AA Oxyride dry cell batteries it seems quite impressive. Even while the painted flames were obviously helping to speed it up.

For now, here are some pictures to enjoy of this wing and what it is capable of.

How To - Build your own LED Light Bulb

LED Light Bulbs

Instructions on how to make your own LED light Bulb

FieldLines have created detailed instructions on how to make your own LED light bulb. They say it takes a while to make, but the time spent building it is well worth the look and cost savings of the lower power consumption.

You need a halogen bulb (dead or not dead), some resistors, lots of LEDs (they recommend no more then 22) and other tools like solder to put it all together. The results are quite cool but it does look like a fairly complicated task putting it all together like can be seen below.

Rather then me going through all the steps again, you should go visit FieldLines to get the full instructions on what to do and how to calculate the resistors needed.

Twenty20 VholdR Camera is XTREME














Twenty20's VholdR is no helmet cam, my friends. No no. It's a "wearable camcorder." How exactly you wear it, we have no clue. But other than this slight stipulation, the VholdR actually looks like a pretty solid (crazy sports) camcorder.

Enclosed in aluminum casing, the rugged VholdR is shock and splash proof for all-terrain shooting. One-button operation makes it suitable for gloved activities, even if a bit restricting for the settingphile. And a 192-degree rotating lens will allow for mounting flexibility, while twin laser alignment helps you gauge just what injuries are being shot at all times. At $350, we'd still like to know what media the VholdR will record to, but it's a promising product in the meantime.

Hello Kitty Privacy Sticker Hides Your Phone's Texts, Emails
