Mogees Turns Anything and Everything Into a Musical Instrument

Mogees1

There’s more to the world than meets the eye–and ears. There’s art in everyday things, from leaves turning into beautiful shades of auburn to the blues, red, and orange that paints the sky with every sunset. You can also make music using the stuff that you see around you, too, although you’ll need a little help from Mogees to actually play it.

Mogees is a small musical instrument that can play anything, from balloons and books to windows and cushions. Conceptualized and created by Bruno Zamborlin, Mogees’ sensor looks like a stethoscope of sorts. It works in conjunction with an app which interprets the signals it receives and transforms it into music.Continue Reading

Mini Museum Fits Right Into Your Pocket

Mini Museum

Lunar and martian rocks, mummy wrap, dinosaur eggs and dino dung–these are just some of the things you’ll find suspended in the Mini Museum. And when they say “mini,” they really meant mini because they measure only a couple inches long and wide. Conceptualized by Hans Fex, the mini museums will come in small sizes, with the small one containing 11 specimens, the medium one containing 22 specimens, and the large one containing 33 specimens.

Basically the relics will come from Hans’ collection, which he gathered from various continents for last the 35 years. He will be breaking these down into smaller pieces and embed them in clear resin for the mini museums.

The Only Giant Stash That Won’t Get You Arrested

Giant Stash Pillow

Designer Ryan Christensen has a thing for coming up with unusual art, and the Giant Stash pillowcase is an epitome of his bizarre style. As the name implies, it’s essentially a bag of ganja of epic proportions that’ll fit most pillows snugly. It was personal project at first that he brought to Kickstarter after seeing people’s positive reactions towards it.

Awhile back I decided to make a pillowcase that looked like a plus size zippy full of cannabis. Days later I had several varieties. After getting huge smiles and great reactions from people, I realized how much fun they were to have around, so I decided to keep working on them.

Clip It, Protect It: ReelKlip Smartphone Protection System

Reel Klip

People drop their phones all the time. Whether it breaks or not depends on the protective case (or lack thereof) and the build of the phone itself. It also depends on whether or not the user is using a smartphone protection system, like ReelKlip. Most people don’t bother because they can be bulky and a pain to use, but ReelKlip is neither of the two.

It’s a discrete system that basically tethers your phone to where the clip is attached, so it won’t ever reach the ground if you drop it or fall out of your pocket inadvertently when you’re on the go.

All Dock Universal Charger For Your Smartphones and Tablets

All Dock

 

Gadgets have become nearly permanent fixtures in people’s lives these days. Without their phones, music players, or tablets, some people feel incomplete, ill at ease, or inconvenienced, and it makes sense, considering how these devices are used. It’s fine and dandy if you’ve got a few dozen outlets at home, but if you’ve only got a limited number of them (like most people do), then keeping these gadgets powered up can become quite a hassle.

One solution is the All Dock. It’s a charging dock for multiple devices so the number of chargers you’ll need for multiple gadgets drops down to one. It’s compatibility with gadgets from multiple manufacturers, including Apple, Android, Samsung, Sony, HTC, Kindle, Nokia, and Huawei, is a definite plus.

If You Like It, Then You Better Put a Smarty Ring On It

Smarty Ring

If smart watches are too bulky for your taste, then how about a smart ring? That’s what the folks behind the aptly-named Smarty Ring are working with. Currently in development, the ring connects via Bluetooth to your iOS or Android smartphone. Alerts for new messages, calls, new email messages, and the like will be flashed on the ring’s display. For social media addicts, updates from Facebook, Twitter, Hangout, and Skype can also be displayed.

Aside from connectivity, it allows users to track the location of their device (if it goes missing) and control it remotely. The Smarty Ring raised about $300,000 on Indiegogo last December, with delivery slated for April 2014. If you missed out on the campaign, then you can still pre-order the ring for $175.

thingCHARGER Lets You Literally Pile On the Chargers

Thingcharger

Running out of outlets to plug in your chargers for all of your devices? Then you might want to check the thingCharger out. It’s a portable outlet-slash-charger of sorts that lets you still use an outlet while you’re charging your device. The cool thing is that it’s stackable, so you can charge one, two, three or more devices in a single outlet and still be able to use that outlet for something else.

The thingCharger comes with interchangeable tips that are stored at its back, so you can swap between adapters for Apple, Samsung, HTC, Nokia, or Sony in a jiffy. It eliminates the wires that most chargers come with and is described as “green by design” since it doesn’t consume any power when it’s not actually in use.
