Carcade takes in-car video games to a new level

by Mark R

Sometimes I wish that the full console games that they put in cars now were available when I was a kid.

It appears that a few students at Berlin Univeristy of Arts are taking backseat video games to a new level with the Carcade. The Carcade …

I Sleep on my Laptop with iSleep

by Mark R

As a freelance writer, I live by my laptop. Sometimes, I work a little too hard and I just want to get a little bit of sleep. When I do, I usually just push my laptop aside and uncomfortably turn my folded arms into pillows. Perhaps this is why Ivonne Dippmann designed the iSleep pillow.

It is amazing how many times I refer to the movie Minority Report when it comes to emerging technology. Hopefully we will never develop Precogs that can predict murders, but that gesture-based interface screen that Tom Cruise uses is something that I want. It appears that an organization known as Fraunhofer HHI has made my dream come true with the iPoint Presenter. This interaction concept uses gesture based interface on …

Rubberband Gun inspired by Metal Gear

by Mark R

In case you are out of focus with video games, you may have heard about Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. The game is immensely popular, and there is a gun used by the main character Snake that is definitely some sweet metal gear. A Japanese fan has designed a stainless steel gun that resembles on from the game, but this one shoots rubberbands. I’ve never really used …

Coox Concept brings the kitchen to the Internet Generation

by Mark R

Have you ever eaten out at one of those restaurants where they cook and chop the food right in front of you? I always thought that it was a little dangerous, because that hot grill is out in the open, where someone could burn their hand or some other body part. Couldn’t they just wheel the hot grill out, and wheel it back when finished? Perhaps this is just one …
