Laziness to a Whole New Level

A Japanese company called Nidec has invented  a new VERY lazy device: a smartphone controlled bottle opened. I mean… can you get lazier than that? The ‘Smart Pet Bottle’ has only 1 objective and it is to rest atop of a bottle and open it remotely. See for yourself!

It connects over Wi-Fi and has a fancy LED display.  Your friends and colleagues will be genuinely impressed when you open a bottle without even touching it and quench your thirst. And by “impressed” I mean shocked at your laziness.*laughs*Honestly speaking, this actually requires more effort than simply opening the damn bottle! But I mean if you want to show off, go right ahead.

The shiny, transparent device for extremely lazy people have yet to be released and the price is not yet available.

Style And Tech: Perfect Fusion

If you like style and technology, this is something you might be interested in. Dior Homme and Sennheiser collaborated on a newly designed audio equipment and it looks really, really good. It is yet to be released to the public but the German electronics company and the legendary French fashion gods have teamed up to give us something fantastic: a set of four products that provide everything we need for a rounded audio experience for home, travel and pocket.

The home category includes an amplifier, home headphones, wireless Bluetooth headphones and earphones, everything neatly placed in a metal box. For travel items, there is the PXC 550 Wireless that can be put in leather backpack and clutches of the same design. Last but not least, for people who love to listen to music on-the-go, the two companies offer pocket sized earphones that come with a fancy and light scuff leather covering.

 

These eye pleasing, red and black audio sets from Dior Homme aesthetics incorporate the gorgeous colours in their leather and hand sewn encasing. The pricing for these exclusive tech packages have not yet been revealed but we can be sure that it’ll be pretty expensive given the brands that collaborated on this and their specs. If you are interested in buying these beauties, keep an eye open for their worldwide release from Dior Homme and Sennheiser.

Straight Outta 5th Element

This is the future guys! Volkswagen Group put out this rendered concept of its 30th-century-like, human-less car named Sedric. I guess the 30th century is closer than we thought.

The autonomous car will drive itself to its destination with just a touch of a button. Volkswagen exposed the real version of the concept at the Auto Shanghai 2017 expo. The cockpit was completely removed for more passenger space and complete driver-less experience.

Pretty freaking cool, right?

For more information on prices and availability… just kidding it’s not for sale just yet. We’ll have to wait a bit more to enjoy this awesomness.

The LED embedded smart jump rope is around $89.99 to $258 based on the size you order from, meaning that for once short people have an advantage.

Creativity Plus Technology Equals Awesome Origami Bulletproof Shield

When creativity meets technological genius. This is a Kevlar ballistics shield inspired by the art of folding paper. It was created by professors in mechanical engineering Larry Howell and Terri Bateman and their colleagues at Brigham Young University.

This shield has 14 layers of Kevlar with an aluminum core, can be deployed very quickly (5 seconds) and has a great angle of protection, which covers up to three people. Compared to the usual shield (90+ lbs) it is half the weight (55 lbs). Because of the way it folds, it saves a lot of space (reduces its size by 4 times) and protects against 9 mm .357 Magnum and .44 Magnum handguns (tested).

Does it not remind you of Star wars?! Hopefully it makes it into the market. The concept is amazing but I think that it’ll be a long time before this amazing origami shield will start doing its job. Maybe one day, in the near future, we will have force field shields!
