The Edible Spoon by Triangle Tree

Triangle Tree Wants You to Eat Your Spoon After Using It

if you eat takeout often, then you are guilty of contributing the hard-to-decomposed, non-biodegradable disposal plastic spoons. apparently, it takes at least 20 years for it to decomposed under “best conditions” or over 1,000 years in less-than-ideal conditions such as landfills. sounds a little scary, doesn’t it? disposable plastic spoons might be small, but they do adds up over time, unless you could eat the spoon after using it, then that would solve the problem. that’s exactly what Triangle Tree is proposing with The Edible Spoon. Edible Spoon is an utensil that you can consume after you have done using it. it doesn’t look too appetizing to us, though it does look like chips, only thicker and longer and with a bowl for scooping.

Nixie Flyable and Wearable Camera

These Guys Have a Bold Ambition: They Want to Make a Wearable Quadcopter with Camera for Your Wrist

a videography drone is nothing groundbreaking, but one that can be worn and deployed right off your wrist? that surely sounds like totally out-of-this-world, but that’s exactly what the team behind Nixie Flyable and Wearable Camera wants to do. this wrist-worn flying concept camera is part of Intel’s Make it Wearable (MIW) challenge, where entrants are challenged to push wearable technology to the next level and Nixie is among one of the finalists. Nixie is nothing short of a compelling idea and a very bold one too. with the frame wrapping the wrist, the Nixie could detach itself at a flick of a wrist, fly a few feet away and snaps a couple of stills or perhaps grab some video footages, before returning to your wrist. while super tiny flying gadgets designed to do such a thing is not new, they are not wearable as Nixie has proposed it would.

Kidrobot x The Simpsons 7" Silver Homer Buddha

Homer Attained Enlightenment, Became a, erhm… Silver Donut Buddha?

every year there are things and events celebrating their 25 years, but this year, no one can do so more deservingly than The Simpsons. it is now the longest-running American sitcom, the longest-running American animated program (that isn’t a reboot, if we may add), and is the longest-running scripted primetime television series. and it happens to have a movie to its name too, which was released back in 2007 and have since grossed over $527 million. with that kind of achievements, it certainly has more meaning to its 25 years than any other commercial products, and for that, there is nothing more fitting than to have the icon of the series, Homer, sculpted in the likeness of the Buddha and painted in silver (silver jubilee, in case you haven’t got it already).

Xtreem Mini Stealth Drone RC Quadcopter by Swann

Xtreem Mini Stealth Drone Flies Up to 330 ft, Has Easy-Fly Gyro for Stabilization and it is Just 6-inch Long

RC things that fly has come a long way. i remember when i started out in RC helicopter, control was the biggest hurdle. back then, gyro wasn’t as sophisticated, or as the experts would say ‘more challenging’ and involves ‘real skills’. thanks the advancement in micro electronics, gyros are now tinier and smarter, which makes hover-capable craft like quadcopters easier to control and Xtreem’s latest quad-rotor flyer, Mini Stealth Drone, is one such RC toy that benefits from this advancement. it promised to take you from rookie pilot to a pro with “little practice” and even “perform all kinds of tricks and stunts.” while control is critical, the sense of direction for these multi-directional flying craft is another whole new challenge, but that’s another issue altogether. for now, it looks like the trickiest part in the book has been eliminated.
