New Design Lounge Fireplace a Flop

fireplace.jpg

The fireplace may look sleek and shiny at the corner of your home, next to the TV. With the flames protruding upwards like the cone of Olympics, your home will look like it’s the best place in town, until one of your guests unknowingly sit on it. Oops. It gives a new meaning to the term flaming ass.

It is never a good idea to have an open flame in the house for various (good) reasons. Needless to say, this is not child friendly so only bachelor(ettes) with half a sense need apply in this purchase. Next entry at the Darwin’s awards anyone?

The open Lounge Fireplace is $1621 and comes with a variety of wood and steel, if you’re really interested.

CupSpeakers

Taking it back to the basics – real basic.

cup_speakers.jpg

These cupspeakers are the creation of Dmitri Zagga. Reliving your childhood spy games with a paper cup and a long string can now be realized. But I must commend the ingenuity with this creation. Oh and it’s part of the whole iPod accessory thingy.

Uniqlo’s Human Vending Machine

Wtf is this?

uniqlo_times_square.jpg

Uniqlo’s latest marketing get go for their Heat Tech Innerwear is rather bizarre. I had to go “WTF” on my opening line for this blog because it was the first thing that came into mind. So, this marketing launch is set at New York’s Time Square and what you do is it allows shoopers the opportunity to use a human vending machine. It works by putting a human in a box and mime around whenever someone pushes a button.

Weird? You betcha!

Basically we’re going to have two mimes. A male and a female mime inside the machine. And the public can see them through glass. When you get there, we’re going to have Uniqlo reps dressed in the silver bodysuits. And they’re going to hold a thermograph scanner — think of an airport security machine. The thermographer identifies cold spots in your body. After you go through that, you go to the vending machine and push a button and the mimes are going to do a synchronized choreographed routine and then your outfit comes out.

A 9,000sqft spaceship

I kid you not, people. This is Germany’s latest invention of their space exploration craft – or popularly know as the spaceship. Look at that mother, it’s like a prop out of ultraman.

The 9k sq foot, 3 story spaceship is named the Second Solar. And the reason why it looks like a cartoonish prop is because it is made for children. Although big kids can come join the fun too.

Made for the Sensapolis fun park, this spaceship is like any child’s dream come true. :)

Esquire’s E-Ink Cover

Okay folks, this might be the future of all magazine covers. I for one, subscribe to the idea of e-ink simple because it’s greener. Ads can go on the e-ink page instead of having a page of it’s own, thus less trees will be torn down. :)

Check out Esquire’s front page:

Not exactly wow-able but it’s getting there for sure. Now, I heard some people think it’s dumb, but what’s dumber than cutting down trees for ad content? Esquire is out on newsstands in NY and everywhere that carries it. You people from Japan might wanna ask a friend from the US to get it for you. :D

Kuma: A teddy bear phone

willcom-bear-kuma-phone1.jpg

At first glance, the teddy bear reminded me of the bear toy in A.I. (Artificial Intelligence by Steven Spielberg) who could walk, jump, play and speak. But Kuma is in fact a full size teddy bear phone. To use it, you need to pick the teddy bear up and put it’s snout near to your ear as if it is whispering to you. Cute?

I think the bear is rather cute but because it is a phone, it would be rather odd to see a grown person holding a bear to their ears on the streets. It would be fine if it was a kid of 4 to 12 years old because as soon as they reach 13, the bear would be a bane of their existence.

Kuma was a hit at the 2008 Good Design Expo. Quite ironic since it is a design of that is not affordable (not $$ but in function). It is too big to be carried around unless you want to lug it around like a child. But if that is your cup of tea, why not?

The phone bear is priced at $500 each and that can save up to four speed dial numbers.

Company who made Kuma Bear: Willcom

The three-way street lamp

Boring street lamps are getting a complete makeover from various design artists from around the world. One of the concepts in progress is a fresh look using Prisma LED that shines light three ways – left, right and up. What I don’t understand is why would you need a street lap that points upwards?

To shine the bat symbol across the sky? Holy Batman!

KDDI ply phones

au-kddi-ply-design-concept.jpg
This new concept phone by KDDI is mind bogglingly uber cool. The phone simulates ply concept where each layer is stuck together to create bigger things like a cupboard. But this phone is not a cupboard mind you, each ply does make one phone but each ply stands for individual functionality; each layer has its own very distinct function, ranging from a photo printer to game controller to mini digital projector.

If you want to check out PLY, run down to KDDI Studios at Harajuku. I will SO get me one of those when and if it ever comes out into the market. Guys at KDDI, if you want someone to check out PLY and do a review, send one over this alley…;) I’ll do it justice!

Old Fashion Camera

blackbird-fly-camera-1.jpgIt seems like old fashion cameras from the era of 20s and beyond are making a come back. Superheadz are launching their Blackbird,fly cameras – a twin lens retro-style camera. Check it out:

The price for these babies are not so bad at all, only $100. I don’t know much about its function but if it just for normal snap-snap moments, it should do the trick.

If you are interested in checking these babies out, go to the Superheadz roadshow, Magic Camera Tour 2008.
