We are way into 2015 and as far as being futuristic is concerned, we are far from it, but there is at least one item you could own that would help inch closer to a high-tech, futuristic living and that’s the Retro Alarm Clock Radio by Electrohome. While digital display clad in a retro design looks seemingly today, gesture control to activate the night light and to snooze the alarm does sound a little more, well, futuristic, if not by a lot. Inspired by dual bell-equipped retro clock, Retro Alarm Clock Radio has a pair of LED lights where the bell ringers supposed to be. These lights serve as a handy nightlight, which you can turn on and off just by waving over the clock. The same gesture can also use to activate the snooze feature for times when you need an extra five minutes. Continue reading You Can Snooze the Retro Alarm Clock Radio’s Alarm by Waving Over it

green heads out there rejoice, cos’ here’s another cool stuff to show your love for the planet. comes Solar Sun Jar, a lamp made out with traditional mason jar (you know those jars that your mum use to store your favorite cookies?) with high-efficiency solar cell, rechargeable battery and low energy LED lamps. placed the jar under the sun and it charges up the battery over a few hours. this energy is stored and can be use at night to power three LED lamps inside the jar. the jar is frosted, so the LED lights emitted is diffused and making it appears like sunlight. the Solar Sun Jar has no switch, cos’ in-built sensor will do the job of detecting darkness and lights up. there’s no paranormal activity but work of the sensor. being a mason jar, it is completely water tight. so there’s no need to worry about weather condition when you leave outside to charge. this also means you can add a touch of mystic coolness to your garden by deploying the Solar Sun Jar as a garden light or simply use it as a night light.
