So It’s Come To This: A Roomba For Cleaning Your Smart Devices’ Screens

atomee-s-2-590x421

Did you ever think you’d see the day we got lazy enough, as a species, to invent a tiny robot whose only task it is to clean the surfaces of our smartphones and tablets? Because, what, wiping is too hard now? Don’t get us wrong, we think the AutoMee S is pretty awesome, but only in a “look at that cute thing moving about on my iPad” sort of way. And we suspect that it’s been created precisely because of its cuteness, especially considering it’s being launched in the Japanese market by Takara Tomy. And we all know Japan likes its kawaii. The AutoMee S measures “67 × 73 × 38mm, weighs 82 grams and is powered by a single AA battery which is good for three hours of cleaning.” It takes 4 minutes to clean an average smartphone and twice as long for a tablet. Like a Roomba, it has edge sensors to prevent it falling off the device, and is programmed to move in random patterns, eventually covering every bit of the surface in its allotted time.

It’s going to hit the market on March 28, in Japan, for 1575 Yen ($ 17) a piece.

Qualy Flowerpot and Squirrel

Plants… Better keep those away from us. Caring for anything that’s unable to come and nag for its food is a recipe for disaster round these parts. Yet, we’re still suckers for good design, and the Qualy Flowerpot and Squirrel is just the kind of thing we’re sure could brighten someone’s day right up. It’s a self-watering flowerpot with a water container within, which then supplies it to the soil through a cord inside the pot.

Both the squirrel and the plant are dependent on your love and care. And, when you pour water through the knothole, the tiny squirrel will appear in its peephole and will show that the plant has enough water. As the water level decreases, you will see less and less of the tiny squirrel. If you only see its big, round eyes, then the squirrel and plant are awfully thirsty and it´s high time to water again.

It’s roughly $35 (€26).

Oppa Gangnam Style USB Drive Will Make You Go ‘Op, Op, Op..’

Gangnam Style USB Drive

PSY’s Gangnam Style has broken records in both the real world and in the virtual world. It’s currently the third most-watched video on YouTube and it has inspired countless video parodies, Halloween costumes, and art installations ever since it hit. It looks like the folks over at USB Geek are jumping on the PSY bandwagon as well with the release of the PSY Gangnam Style USB Drive.

The PSY-inspired flash drive comes in 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB capacities and is coated with a durable silicone casing. It’s USB 2.0 certified and functions just like any other flash drive out there in the market. Perfect for storing and sharing your own Oppa-tastic parody of PSY’s hit tune. My only beef with the design is that it doesn’t feature PSY posed in the signature dance move from Gangnam Style. Now that would’ve been way cooler.

Fat Pincushion Cats Dressed Up as Your Favorite Characters are Purrrfect!

Fat Pincushion Cats

Cats purr, meow, and cough up hairballs that are as big as their heads sometimes, but we love them anyway. The true testament to that statement stems from the fact that there are a gazillion memes and YouTube videos that are all dedicated to the smartness and prowess of the feline species.

Aside from this, there’s also a ton of cat-related products that feature cats in all sorts of costumes and positions, like these Fat Pincushion Cats. I think you’ll have a hard time sticking any pins and needles into them because they just look too darned adorable. They’re dressed up in all sorts of funky garb too, and if you’re as geeky as I think you are, then you’ll most likely recognize what they’re wearing and who they’re supposed to be.

Check out more cat pincushions in cushion after the break.
