Time Tag (You're it)

time.jpg

You know when these would come in very handy? When you're stuck in a boring meeting and can't sneak a look at your watch, cell phone, or PDA.

Tag your tie, your cuff, your necklace, heck, the binder in front of you and you'll always have the time.

$17.95 for two from Wrapables.

RoboMower

robo.jpg

This reminds me of the iRobot vacuum cleaner, except this is for your lawn. The RoboMower RL850 features a "battery-powered three-blade, 21-inch (56cm) powerful cutting system equivalent to a 5.5 HP gas mower."

It cuts your lawn in a systematic crisscross pattern, travelling several times over the grass to make sure it gets every last blade.

How does it work, you ask? You need to install a special electric perimeter wire around your lawn, attached to the surface of the lawn with pegs every few feet. The wire is connected to a small battery powered current source called the Perimeter Switch. The RoboMower has a special senor so it stays inside the electronic fence. Charge it between uses and it's always at your command.

Oh yeah, it's $1,175.99, at Vacation Gadgets.

Caffeinated Soap

shower-shock.jpg


Hi, my name is Evan and I'm a caffeine addict.

But I'd never heard of "Shower Shock" caffeinated soap until now.

The 4 ounce all -vegetable based glycerine soap contains 200 milligrams of caffine per, uh, shower.

Think Geek claims the caffeine is absorbed through the skin.

$6.99 per bar at the aforementioned Think Geek.

Bendy spoon

bendy%20spoon.jpg

I can appreciate the whimsy of pizza forks and knorks from afar, I don't need them in my kitchen. But I could definitely use a set of these bendy spoons. Sticky spoons on tables and countertops drive me crazy. These would be great for serving iced tea or ice cream. They're �3.90 each from Mocha.

Cute little robot sommoliers are invading

winebot.jpg

The AP is carrying a story on Japanese researchers who have presented a cute little robot that's trying to put me out of a job. The Winebot is able to identify many different types of wine, cheese, and hors doeuvres by interpreting the measurements from an infrared spectrometer; wines are analyzed beforehand and a catalog of wine signatures allows the cute little guy to suggest appropriate food pairings and flavor profile recommendations. The robot is just a toy, but the technology involved is going to change the way we look at wine.

The wine industry needs a surefire way to bust the big business of high dollar forgeries, and a wine database could be the solution. The best part is that the bottle doesn't have to be opened for the Winebot to identify the contents so a handheld device could be common equipment on buying trips and cellar tagging expeditions.

I'm hoping that the researchers will open their signature database to the rest of the world and allow those in the wine business, like myself, to add their wines to what could grow to be an all encompassing list. The suggestion of an open signature database is just a hint to the scientists involved since they're planning to offer the Winebot's infrared sensor as a seperate peripheral in the upcoming year.

"I want my Bud.TV"

Bud%20TV%20%282%29.jpg

Thats BTV as in Bud.TV, an online entertainment network that Anheuser-Busch will launch the day AFTER Super Bowl .

In launching a network on the web site, Bud.TV, the company is basically providing branded entertainment, following in the footsteps of many other companies, such as Pepsi. Due to inventions such as TiVo, advertisers are looking for other ways to get their messages across.

At the moment, Bud.TV is planning to offer computer users six channels of comedy, reality, sports and talk programming created for and by Anheuser-Busch. Some names for the channels include Comedy, Happy Hour and Reality. Under wraps is a seventh channel, tentatively named Bud Tube, which will be their version of youtube.com.

Aimed squarely at the male aged 21 to 34 (no kidding), they are confident that this age group is spending more time on the internet than watching traditional TV.

They may have had a lightbulb moment the day after Super Bowl when 700,000 folks downloaded their ads that ran during the game on budweiser.com.

To monitor the use of Bud.TV so that it is not watched by minors under 21, computer users sign up and create profiles.

Launching Feb 5th. Mark your calendars, boys and girls.

Who needs a nightlight, when you've got LED Wallcoverings?

led_wallpaper.gif

Ingo Maurer has created LED Wallcoverings that she presented earlier this year at Spazio Krizia 2006 in Milan. What I love about this work is that it is not just about the technology. Maurer plays with texture, light, shadow, and materiality to mysterious and elegant effect.

General Dynamics GoBook XR-1 rugged notebook

gobook_xr1.jpg

This one is designed to be the Hummer among laptops. Developed by Itronix, a General Dynamics company (known for their F-16 fighter jet), the GoBook XR-1 laptop is expected to debut this month.

Sleek and light, yet rugged enough to withstand extreme rough handling, the GoBook keeps going even with exposure to heat, dust, shocks, toxic substances and even sub-zero temperatures. And what is interesting is that the GoBook is designed to accomplish all this without any compromise on the performance.

The GoBook uses the latest Intel Core Duo 1.83GHz processor and has an impressive form-factor that makes it the lightest and smallest fully rugged notebook available (it weighs a mere 6.8 pounds and measures 11.8 x 9.65 x 1.97 inches). The other add-on features are its wide-ranging wireless capabilities (WLAN, WWAN, Bluetooth and GPS), a dedicated external graphics controller, glow-in-the-dark keys and optional backlit keyboard to improve keyboard viewing in low light conditions, and 40GB or 80GB HDD options. Moreover, for security reasons, the hard drives are designed to be removable, and you can also attach an optional fingerprint scanner and smart card for password entry.

This rugged beast will set you back by a cool $4300, which places it in a niche category. If the pricing were lower, the GoBook might have looked forward to a greater share of the laptop market. However, the GoBook has been primarily designed for defence personnel. Nevertheless, if you are looking for a really rugged laptop, then make sure you definitely review this one if your wallet is rugged enough, that is.
