Wacky Japanese Beauty Gadget :Anti-Wrinkle Goggles

mejikara-anti-wrinkle-glasses-1.jpeg

If you don't mind looking like an alien, these Japanese "Anti-Aging goggles" promise to reduce wrinkles. The site swears that if you wear these attractive goggles just 5 minutes a day you'll see a big difference. We couldn't make this stuff up. See, here's a quote directly from the Japan Trend Shop:

On the inside of the Mejikara there are specially-designed ridges which massage and help your skin. It puts gentle pressure on the skin and pushes those sagging eyes back up to where they once were!

And to think they're only $51 US!

Textspresso can receive texts AND print them in your coffee

textspresso-image.jpg

Textspresso is a rather special espresso machine that can not only send and receive texts, but prints them onto your coffee too, so you can start the morning with a lovely message from a loved one (or a mean one about how you didn't lock the door properly).

Created by cloud texting company Zipwhip, the device consists of a Jura Impressa Xs90 espresso machine, with built-in texting capabilities and a Canon printer that uses edible ink.

Unfortunately the Textspresso isn't going to be coming to a store or coffee shop near you, it's just a way of showcasing Zipwhip's SMS skillz in a quirky and rather gimmicky way. No fair!

Facebook paints a 42ft QR code to the roof of its headquarters

facebook-qr-code.jpg

We all know the team at Facebook like to be a little bit quirky, what with their flip flops and silly business cards! But today those crazy kids at the social network's HQ have gone one step further and painted a HUGE 42ft QR code to the top of their roof...

According to Like Cool the QR code would open the new Facebook QR Code page if someone were high enough to scan it with their mobile phones from a helicopter or plane.

We're not sure it's particularly useful, but it is a pretty cool stunt!

The Kube2 tiny mp3 player

kube-player.jpg

The Kube2 is undoubtedly small, but according to Chip Chick it's the smallest touch-based mp3 player ever. The teeny tiny device is already a huge hit in Singapore and Indonesia and when it's unveiled to the rest of the world at CES in January it's expected to cause even more of a splash.

The Kube2 has an in-built memory card, boasts around six hours of battery life and is solely operated by a touchscreen on its surface. We're not quite sure how that'll work given how small it is, but it's probably a very simple interface with just play, pause and skip functionality.

The Kube2 is a beautiful little gadget, which we can't wait to find out more about in January.

Plus, it's cute and is specially made for our inner nerd!

ReLife Ink puts old cartridges to good use

relife-ink.jpg

A scary amount of waste goes into landfill sites from our offices. Most of this waste should probably have been sorted and recycled, but gets thrown into the trash along with everything else.

We get through a crazy amount of printer ink cartridges even though most of the time they're not empty! So, designers Kim Jungwoo, Kim Yoonsang and Park Eunsung decided to use them in other ways so they wouldn't go to waste. Their first project has been the ReLife Ink, which sees all kinds of old ink cartridges being used as handy stamps. What a good idea!

Open source iNecklace

iNecklace by Adafruit from adafruit industries on Vimeo.

The iNecklace from Adafruit Industries is a quirky little flashing on/off button pendant, which I can imagine would make a cute novelty present.

However, interestingly the iNecklace is completely open source, meaning the source code, circuit board files and CAD files can be hacked and altered in any way you please, making it a little different to your usual geeky gift.

On another note, why do so many companies feel they have to add the "i" prefix onto their products?!

Available from Adafruit for $75.

Jellyfish Art create tank for your desk

jellyfish-tank.jpg

I've seen a fair few desktop tanks containing small, subtle, Finding Nemo-style fish, but rarely do other strange creatures from the deep seem appropriate in a working environment.

Can you imagine a crab in an accountancy firm? An eel in a bank? It all seems a little creepy doesn't it...

Well, the experts at Jellyfish Art have recently created a large tank designed especially for, you guessed it, jellyfish. I personally find it a strange choice, jellyfish can sting and their lack of organs never fails to freak me out. However, many others apparently find the slow way jellyfish ooze around their tanks really relaxing, making them a welcome addition to a stressful office.

You'll notice the tank also shines bright neon lights on the little guys too, turning them into little living, breathing (I assume they breathe) works of art.

So, will you be replacing that photo of your family on your desk with a Portugese Man of War?

The desktop tank and starter kit is available from Jellyfish Art for $249, but if you want something that looks a little more Seaworld, then try the Monaco for $2,900.
