As black is beautiful in the fashion world, "small is beautiful" in the gizmo world. Add to that oodles of perceptivity and what you end up with is a wonderful design the likes of the Folderix USB drive from Art Lebedev Studios.
The wonderful concept design from Art Lebedev emerged from the interesting problem statement "Flesh out a metaphor." And the solution perhaps does full justice to the problem. What singles out the Folderix is its superlatively cute appearance - it's shaped like a folder icon on which you could probably write out your own label. And not to mention, it's as small as a finger!
There's no information on the pricing or availability (or capacity) just yet. Well all I can say is, flesh it out soon guys, we are waiting!
Call it a guilty pleasure, but nothing beats the fun (and, perhaps, the stress-relieving benefits) of popping all the little cells on a sheet of bubble wrap. I fondly remember the days of my youth where there was always a fight to be the first to get to the packing materials that came with a delivery.
Bandai, the Japanese game gurus, have made it possible to fulfill your popping needs virtually anywhere and anytime with the PuchiPuchi bubble wrap simulator. Designed in consultation with an actual Japanese bubble wrap manufacturer, the PuchiPuchi is a small, keychain-ready square of entertainment ready for you to pop away at.
Available in several colors, the PuchiPuchi goes beyond standard-fare bubble wrap and will surprise you on every hundredth pop with one of several unexpected sound effects, such as a door chime, dog bark, fart, or sexy voice. Every thousandth toy features a lucky heart-shaped bubble.
The PuchiPuchi will debut at the Tokyo Toy Show 2007 on June 28th.
If you, or more likely, your parents, are having trouble reading the computer keyboard, get one of these Large Print Keyboards, which feature extra large keys and USB and PS2 connections.
Not only do they have a larger, bolder print, but they also come in three different color combinations, yellow being the birghtest and ugliest.
I won't tell if you get one for yourself.
