If you're going to create a floating, waterproof speaker then why not take some inspiration from nature and make one like lovely water lily?!
The Lotus bath speaker concept from designer Lim Loren syncs up to smartphone devices, allowing you to play music while you're relaxing in the tub.
The little device also creates small ripples in the water to mimic sound waves, which is a nice touch!

It was only a matter of time before someone created a piece of clothing based on a Facebook profile, what with the Follow Me on Twitter tights being sold on Etsy a few months ago.
The dress speaks for itself really, a Facebook profile made into a flimsy looking dress all in the name of... um... fashion?
Our favourite has to be the simple smile.
Prices vary and they're available to order directly from Chao & Eero.
We were a very popular techy Santa this year, mostly because of Hoodie Buddies, a sweatshirt with built in ear plugs. Where was this when were in High School? The garments connect with your music device and allow you to listen to music via embedded headphones on the ends of the drawstrings.Needless to say, it was a popular gift with all the teens.
Hoodie Buddies new sister line, InSound, uses the same HB3 technology but in more fashion- forward styles of sweatshirts, such as reversible models ,a "Slickster Black Hoodie" which looks like leathette, a snappy flannel tunic, and a Lux Henly version. Amazingly, they are machine washable, but line dry.
The prices range from $49 for the "standard issue" up to $72 for the black and white flannel.
For most of us, our favorite look is a pair of great-fitting jeans and a comfortable but stylish tee. For me, that translates to 7 For All Mankind denim and a Jenny B rockin' v-neck shirt, made from the softest cotton.
Jenny Brawley,a former advertising executive, is a So Cal Native, which shows in the laid-back styles. But pair one of the burnout tanks with an attached wrap/scraf with your good jeans, and pair of stilettos, and you're ready to go clubbing.
Celebs like AnnaLynn McCord, Paula Abdul and Khloe Kardashian have flocked to the line.
Your favorite look - just taken up a notch.
$38 and up at Jenny B.
You've always loved your jeans, and now here's another reason: denim protects you from snakebite.
Of course, to be fully protected, you may need to give up those skinny jeans that show off your, um assets. Go shopping instead for something like the technology breakthrough fabric invented in the 18th century but still beloved in the 21st: Armor-like heavyweight denim fashioned into Mom jeans.
The pretty frock in he picture is more than the latest piece of haute couture. Thanks to the efforts of Forster Rohner, Alexandra Institute, diffus.dk, and The Danish Design School this dress is not only fashion-forward it's also eco-friendy.
The LEDs embroidered into the dress actually show the levels of CO2 in the room. The dress monitors CO2 levels and transmits the information to the LEDs which flicker in response to the data. I wonder if the decision to make the dress a charcoal gray a purposeful one made by the collaborators to symbolize our declining air quality. At any rate, this is another example of how technology and fashion can come together to create something that's beautiful and functional both on and off the catwalk.

Finding a good sample sale is has to be like hunting prey in the wild. It's illusive, secretive, and gone in a flash. You have to keep your ear to the ground and be willing to hit the pavement at a moment's notice, but once you've found one and saved bundles on that designer purchase, you leave feeling like a mighty lioness ruler of all she surveys. Okay i might be taking it a little far, but there's something crazy thrilling about sample sales.
Online shopping community ideeli, packages that excite and sends it to your inbox daily. The online sample sale site has been up and running since 2007, hawking designer wares in limited-time sales to fiscally-minded fashionistas. A members-only site, you have to receive an invite to play in this arena of shopping champions. And while it may seem counterproductive to have a closed community of shoppers, it seems to be paying off. According to TechCrunch, ideeli has just raised 20 million in funding to keep their members decked out in the exclusive fashions we love so well.
In addition to the big payday, ideeli has also reached the million member mark. Kudos, to ideeli and sites like it that realize that just because we're living in a recession doesn't mean wie have to dress like it.Id
There's something about LEDs and clothing that really gets me, provided it's done well. You won't catch me within 100 feet of one of those cheesy light-up holiday sweaters, especially those garish Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer deals. This kimono however, has class and sophistication that negates the gimmicky feel of the LED lighting.
The kimono was created by performing artist/composer Miya Masaoka. The garment's sleeve has 444 LED that are individually controlled. The lights respond primarily to sound and the movement of the wearer. Future iterations of the kimono will allow it to function more as a smart garment with the ability to improvise, listen, and react to its environment.
It looks a little bulky with the lights on, but once the lights are dimmed, this piece of performance art becomes a fluid showcase of captivating light and movement.
A free holiday postcard, and snailmailed free too! We keep reading that Google has more money than it knows what to do with, and here's further evidence. Not that I'm complaining.
So, go here, write your 255-character message, add the recipient's address, pick out your card from a selection of six, and Google says it will do the rest: stamp it, snailmail it, the whole deal. Thanks, Google.
Limit 1, US only, no naughty content. Google says the supply is not endless despite its riches, so better not tarry. If you want to send more than one--a couple of the designs are particularly nice--you can download and print Google holiday cards and mail them yourself.
