The Suvet, 50% Suit, 50% Duvet, 100% Awesome


As far as we’re concerned nap time is pretty much all the time. It looks like we’re not alone thinking that way. British hotel chain Jurys Inn Hotel Group conducted research that showed 56% of Brits struggle to get out of bed in the morning. “Lack of sleep (42%), temperature outside the duvet (40%) and fear of the working day ahead (31%), topped the list of reasons to stay in bed.” So what better solution than to simply bring the duvet with you? The chain then teamed up with famed designer Wendy Benstead to create the Suvet, a duvet/suit hybrid. It looks amazing, will make you the envy of everyone around you on your morning commute, but sadly can’t be bought. If you want it to become a product you can buy, you’re free to Tweet @JurysInnshotels with #JurysInnSuvet. Yes, they’re getting free promotion, but who knows, maybe public pressure will yield results.

Smart Pin: A Pin For The Digital Age

Pins Collective Wearable

The following article is brought to you by The Tech Info Group. -Ed

Everyone has those awkward years where they left their house wearing some obviously regrettable off-trend fashion. Now that the hipster culture is back in style, everything old is new again and some poor fashion decisions you made in your earlier years are now trending. For example, think about the old-fashion graphic pins you probably wore on your clothes, backpack, or wherever else that you could think of. Pins were a great way to easily express yourself and show the world what you liked without saying a single word. Now, thanks to our vintage culture, these cute little buttons are back to being stylish again.

There is a company in Stockholm, Sweden, that is taking the classic wear-ability of a basic pin, and hoping to give it a makeover for the digital age. This Kickstarter company, Pins Collective, has some high hopes for their new Smart Pin. Digital devices that can be worn on the body are surfacing on the market, such as the Apple watch. However, even Apple has had a difficult time making tech wearable’s popular. Mostly business professionals and tech companies like TTIG are the ones benefiting from current wearable technology. Pins Collective hopes to engage a larger spectrum of individuals. They are relying heavily on nostalgic appeal in hopes that individuals will choose to fund their product.Continue Reading

Can’t Eat Too Much Salt? This Fork Will Zap Your Tongue With Electricity To Simulate It


Ever stick your tongue on a battery to see if it’s still got juice? Yeah, we all do. So you probably know that the tiny electric current it generates sort of tastes salty. Well, the Electric Flavouring Fork pictured above uses that principle to simulate the effects of salt, for those who are on low sodium diets. It’s being developed by Hiromi Nakamura at Rekimoto Lab, Interfaculty Initiative in Information Studies, at the University of Tokyo.

The handle of the fork incorporates a rechargeable battery and electric circuit. When the user inserts the head of the fork into the mouth with food while pressing a button on the handle, a certain level of electric current is applied to the tongue. The degree of saltiness differs depending on eating habits, age, etc. This time, three current levels were available. The prototype costed ¥2,000 (approx US$17.7) in addition to the cost of a fork.

So clearly this is not a product you can buy just yet, but it’s interesting to see it’s something being worked on. You’ll have to forgive us for not getting too excited though; we won’t rest until someone invents a fork that makes broccoli taste like fries.

5 Reasons to Turn your Ordinary Home into a Smart Home

Screen Shot 2016-03-29 at 9.55.45 PM

Guest post by Lark B from -Ed.

Today, smart homes are no longer an exception; many people are opting to turn their ordinary homes into a smart home. If you have been contemplating between whether you should or shouldn’t follow suit, take a look at these 5 reasons why you should seriously consider outfitting your home with some of the greatest technology:

Your utility bills are through the roof- Utility bills are an unavoidable expense each month and somehow, no matter how much you try, you just can’t seem to rein them in. When you have a smart home, you have complete control over the manner in which your home uses energy. For instance, your smart home can easily detect when nobody’s at home and will automatically turn off the lights, heating or the TV in case they are switched on. This goes a long way in conserving energy and helps reduce your utility bills.

You forget your house keys- This is something that has happened to all of us at some time or the other. But with a smart home, you don’t have to worry about not being able to get into the house. The Geofencing software unlocks your door automatically when you are within a certain distance of your home.

You want convenience- When you have a smart home, you can be as lazy as you like. You won’t have to worry about getting off the couch or bed to turn off the lights; you can do all of this remotely. What’s even better is that you can also control the color and brightness of the lights in your home via a remote control. You can do the same with the heating and cooling in your home. In fact, you can control the heating remotely from anywhere outside your home too, and you won’t have to come back to a chilly home again.

You want your home to be secure- You can install sensors all over your home and you will be able to track all the events and going ons in & around your home, remotely as well. Live camera feeds & recording capabilities are built into almost all smart home systems.

You want to easily monitor your home remotely- Regardless of whether you have gone shopping at a local supermarket or are on vacation in another part of the world, the cameras and sensors in your home will allow you to monitor and control it. You can download an app or access these controls via a website and make the adjustments you want to make.

These are just a few of the reasons to turn your ordinary home into a smart home. You have to download certain software and apps and will be able to control a number of functions on your property. This adds a distinct convenience factor and helps make your home more comfortable, safe and energy-efficient too. If you conduct a bit of research, you will find there are different types of systems you can choose from, and you are sure to find something that matches your requirements and budget.
