Pieces of Chinese chess get memory

Brando has a new range of flash drives shaped like pieces of Chinese chess. USB Chinese chess is finished in wood and has engravings to set each piece apart. They are available in 2,4 and 8 GB. If you order a single piece, they’ll send you a random piece; but you can also get a whole set of 32 pieces for $449 (2GB flash drives).

Skinput transforms users into touchscreens

Skinput transforms users into touchscreens


Touchscreens may be all the rave these days, but soon you could be able to play a bit of a cyborg with inputs embedded in your forearm. Theoretically, your arm could be the control panel for your gadgets. For the technology to work in the least invasive way, you’d require a pica projector and a microphone. The projector creates images of the buttons on your arm, while the mic picks up sounds when you tap your arm and translates them into action by recognizing the “button” you tapped. Or you could get tattoed with the buttons and do away with the projector. The technology is currently in the development phase.

H2Office: Your office on water

H2Office: Your office on water


H2Office earns its place in the cool book simply because this baby floats. The 9 meter long office can hold 2 desks, a fold-out bed, lounge, kitchenette, and there’s even a sun deck at the top to make this office even more desirable. It feeds off a 240V power supply from the shore, which is a huge shortcoming. You could get some of the energy from wind and solar power, but that’s not all that interesting. The office has a number of customization options to suit your needs. Like all good things, this one is expensive as hell. Costs $90,000.

Remembering the light bulb

Remembering the light bulb


Ever since it was invented, the incandescent light bulb has sort of been a part of our daily life. Now that it is slowly on its way out, there’s a way you could recreate the same, comfortin effect to some degree. The solution lies in using an even older source of light, that probably won’t ever go obsolete, the candle. These Light Bulb Effect wax candles from System Design Studio look lovely and cool.
