Shoes With Light Up Soles

led-shoes2-640x533

You don’t know you want shoes with light up soles until you want shoes with light up soles. It’s one of those things that only a very narrow demographic band will enjoy, like fans of electronic music and chemical “mood enhancers”, for instance. They’re a bit of a novelty item, sure, and you couldn’t just wear them anywhere, but in the right time and place, these are great. Better yet is the fact you’ll have to pay only $79 to get a pair, which isn’t all that bad considering the 8 hour runtime, and optional cycling colors.

Sketchbook Made From Synthetic Skin For Tattoo Artists To Practice On

skin-book-1

Everyone has to start somewhere, but when it comes to tattoos, you’d hope your artist wouldn’t start on you. Like anyone else developing a craft, they need practice, but low-standards Guinea Pigs are hard to come by. That’s why we’re really digging Tattoo Art Magazine’s initiative to create “The Skin Book”, a sketchbook made entirely of artificial skin, as part of a marketing push made in partnership with Brazilian ad agency Lew’Lara TBWA. Each page is made to feel just like a different part of the body, such as knuckles or a man’s chest. Artists can practice their craft while using real ink and needles, which we imagine behave differently than pencils.

There’s no word on whether The Skin Book will ever see the light of day as a product you can purchase, or if it is to remain a marketing prop. But now knowing it exists highlights the fact that this is very probably a product that would find a market in no time, and should consequently be taken seriously as more than just a conversation piece.

Pocket Operators Are Pocket-Sized Synthesizers For Mobile Djs

Cheap-Monday-Pocket-Operators-Micro-Synthesizers

Cheap-Monday-Pocket-Operators-Micro-SynthesizersWe’ll admit we don’t know much about synthesizers, but we like the idea that a product seemingly as small as this could allow someone to make electronic music on the go. About the size of an iPhone 6, the Pocket Operators come in three flavours: ” the “Rhythm” operator is a drum machine, the “Sub” is a base line synthesizer, & the “Factory” provides a selection of melodies.”

The SUB is a bass line driven synthesizer. It’s got a 16 step sequencer with 16 sounds and 16 effects/playing styles.

Type: Pocket bass line synthesizer and sequencer

Key features:
– Real synthesizer engines
– Sequencer
– Parameter locks
– 16 punch-in effects
– 16 punch-in styles
– Built-in speaker

– LCD display

That’s the description for the SUB Pocket Operator, but features are similar for all. They cost all of £49, which is about $74USD.

Cellphone Skin Could Capture Its Own Radio Signals, Harvest Some Energy

Stick-on-phone-skin-extends-battery-life_3

It’s claimed that up to 97% of a cellphone’s radio signals are simply lost, most of the time simply trying to find nearby towers, or just staying connected to your router. Researchers at The Ohio State University are developing a product that could extend current battery life by up to 30% by harvesting a portion of these wasted signals.

There are some products newly on the market that harvest stray radio signals to charge tiny wireless devices such as temperature sensors. But the Ohio State invention is many times more powerful and efficient, said Robert Lee, professor of electrical and computer engineering.

To communicate, today’s portable devices broadcast radio signals—that is, high-frequency AC—a portion of which the Ohio State rectifier system captures and converts back to DC. Its trick is to siphon off just enough of the radio signal to noticeably slow battery drain, but not enough to degrade voice quality or data transmission.

The researchers are currently working on a skin that could be applied to your phone and would do the job of harvesting this lost energy. But the aim is to eventually work at the OEM level, directly with phone manufacturers, to help them extend devices’ battery lives. When and if it ever does make it to market, the engineers expect it to cost around $100.

Cup Of Wine On The Beach? Unthinkable Until You Get ‘The Beach Glass’

this-beach-glasses-float-in-the-water-and-can-stand-up-on-the-sand-0

All roads lead to Rome, and it’s true that you can choose to get drunk any way you want; in the end you’re just as drunk. But there’s a certain appearance of class that comes with drinking wine out of a wine glass. Good luck projecting that “sophisticated” image while on the beach tough, unless of course you get yourself a Beach Glass. It’s all “Wine cup up top, and bloody spike at the bottom” so that all you have to do to keep your drink upright is to stab it in the sand. It’s a simple design, and with summer in full swing we suspect it’ll be popular with the beach bums among you. Of course, if it works in the sand, it’ll work in other surfaces like snow, grass, dirt, or anything that can get stabbed. It’s $10.50 for one.
