AirPods Charging iPhone Battery Case Is As Clever As It Is Weird. It Really Is

If I were to classify Apple ugly-ass AirPods as ‘weird stuff’, then I suppose the PodCase, a hybrid battery case for iPhone and AirPods, would be weirdly awesome. I guess? My stance on the AirPods never change and it never will, but the idea of fusing the battery needs for two devices into one gadget is pretty damn clever. Just the idea ONLY. I stress. Anyways, your iPhone with never-good-enough-battery-life needs the juice and so does your AirPods, and instead of bringing a portable battery and the AirPods charging case, PodCase is both and as a boon, it keeps your lovely device protected and offers a safe haven for your easily misplaced AirPods.

MB&F’s Octopus-inspired Table Clock Is Really More Akin To A Robotic Spider

MB&F, AKA Maximilian Busser and Friends, has come a long way. It has progressed from making exotic watches to, in recent years, exquisite clocks that were pretty much out of this world. The Octopod is the luxury watch brand’s latest table clock that will leave sci-fi fans drooling all over. Assuming the form of a robotic octopus (hence, Octopod), the Octopod was a co-creation with L’Epée 1839 and features deep sea technology like the bathysphere (that’s a deep sea, spherical submersible, if you don’t already know) inspired by the late eighties sci-fi/horror flick, The Abyss (1989, 20th Century Fox) and it boasts no less than 468 fine-finished components behind the newly developed eight-day movement by L’Epée 1839 that makes it ticks. Impressive. Continue reading MB&F’s Octopus-inspired Table Clock Is Really More Akin To A Robotic Spider

Artist Tom Galle Turns Recognizable Corporate Logos Into Weapons

NYC-based Internet artist/digital creative Tom Galle has recently started a new project which we are pretty confident it is going to catch on with the Internet. Entitled “Corp Gear,” this new project is a collection of weapons fashioned out of corporate logos. As you can see from the images, Galle has done a brilliant job in turning iconic corporate logos that we are familiar with into weapons. The collection, which only started earlier this month, so far saw Galle turning Nike very recognizable Swoosh logo into a blade (‘Nike Knife’), McDonald’s iconic Golden Arches into a brass knuckleduster (‘McDonalds Brass Knuckles’), Facebook’s blue ‘F’ branding into a crowbar (‘Facebook Crowbar’), and Mercedes-Benz’s pointed star into Shuriken, AKA ninja star (‘Mercedes Ninja Star’).

Incase’s First Connected Suitcase Is Sleek, Minimalist And USB-C Equipped

There are a handful of “high-tech” suitcases out there. We have seen quite a bit here, but if you’d prefer a high-tech travel roller designed and made by a long-standing, reputable bag maker over those offered by untested startups, well, here it is, the first ‘connected’ luggage from bag and gadget accessories maker, Incase. Called NoviConnected 4 Wheel Hubless Travel Roller, this sleek, minimalist suitcase features a class-A makrolon polycarbonate shell, polyester jacquard interior liner and futuristic-looking, hubless smooth glide wheels that are removable. Why removable? I have absolutely no idea. Perhaps, it facilitates easy replacement when the needs arise? Continue reading Incase’s First Connected Suitcase Is Sleek, Minimalist And USB-C Equipped

The VW Bus Lives Again! But Now It Will Park In Your Kitchen As A Refrigerator

We have heard Volkswagen is rebooting the iconic VW Bus and if I ask me, I’d say the news come as both yay and nay. Yay because the microbus is coming back and nay because it will never be as cool as the iconic ride (cue The Doors’ Light My Fire). I guess somethings are best left in the era where it belongs. However emotionally tied we are to certain objects, we have to move on somehow. But moving on does not mean ditching your love for this cult phenomena vehicle entirely. You can actually still own it, but this time, it has to go into your kitchen because, the familiar lines now exist as a fridge. Yes. That’s a VW Bus refrigerator that we are talking about! Holy sh… Continue reading The VW Bus Lives Again! But Now It Will Park In Your Kitchen As A Refrigerator

Cassie Is A Torso-less Bipedal Robot That May One Day Deliver Packages To You

Wheels and tracks are easiest to get a robot going, but those mobility solutions have their limitations, and to mention, does not satisfy our sci-fi fantasy. If we expect robots to traverse across a variety of terrains like humans do, then bipedal is the way to go. There’s no doubt about it. Armed with this notion, Agility Robots, a spin-off of Oregon State University, has devoted its time to perfecting a robot that walks on two and from the looks of it, the roboticists over at Agility Robotics may have pulled it off rather perfectly. The robot in question is called Cassie, a bipedal robot revealed back in February when it demonstrated its eerily human-like walking ability.

The Nightmare Before Christmas Cuckoo Clock Is One For The Halloween

As if cuckoo clock itself isn’t spooky enough, the guys at Bradford Exchange has made it even more spookier with an iteration based on Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. So, yeah. What you have here is a Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas cuckoo clock, officially licensed, of course, and you know what I think? I think the marriage between the celebrated creepy animation and cuckoo clock is a match made in the deepest pit of hell. Which means, it made for the perfect addition to your Halloween decor. I see no other way of recreating a spookier atmosphere than having a clock playing back This is Halloween, accompanied by Zero, Jack’s faithful ghost dog, popping in and out of the doors atop of the Town Hall at every strike of the hour.
