Get Smart With Upcycled Shoe Phones

Post a Comment

Agent 86, more famously known as Maxwell Smart, in the classic 1960s situation comedy Get Smart had a shoe phone. If you think about it: who hasn’t wanted turn their shoe into a phone, no matter how impractical and unsanitary it is. Now you can actually own one yourself with UK artist Sean Miles “upcycled” shoe collection – a collaboration with mobile United Kingdom phone carrier’s O2 Recycle initiative.

With inspiration not from Maxwell Smart (sort of?), but from Sports Illustrated’s famous free sneaker phone that was offered with every subscription, Sean Miles took older model Nokia and LG handsets and embedded them into the souls of a Christian Louboutin heel, a classic men’s brogue, a Nike Air trainer and a Hunter Welly.

Buckyballs Addicts Rejoice — Omega Releases Anti-Magnetic Mechanical Watch

3 Comments

Great news for all you magnet lovers out there. Omega has announced a new movement, the caliber 8508, that is resistant to magnetic fields greater than 1.5 Tesla (15,000 Gauss).

What the hell is Gauss? In short, it’s how we measure the strength of a magnetic field. To put this into numbers we can all understand, an average sub-woofer has a magnetic output of around 7,500 Gauss while a set of Buckyballs is around 5,200. As it turns out, magnets are watch killers, accounting for a large number of repairs and returns in the watch world — who knew?

The Rolex Milgauss, previously the best anti-magnetic watch, was only able to resist 1000 Gauss. Sure, this might have been acceptable for scientists working on the Large Hadron Collider at CERN but who knows where space-time travel could take you. As long as you’re not transported to a neuron star, the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra can work in all environments.

Talk To The Hand – With The hi-Call Glove Phone

Post a Comment

Holding a phone to your head is for cavemen and hands-free kits make you look like a loon talking to nobody. If only there was a compromise that was as practical as it was socially acceptable.

Oh wait, there is! It’s the universal sign for ‘phone’ and one of the four most natural things in the world: holding your thumb and pinkie to your mouth and ear. And, thanks to this handy (pun intended) glove/telephone combo, you can now not only gesticulate about an incoming call, but answer it as well.

The hi-Call Bluetooth phone glove from hi-Fun is a simple but effective design with a speaker inserted into the thumb of a wooly glove and a mic in the pinkie allowing no-nonsense talking to the hand thanks to a Bluetooth link to your phone. And they keep your hands warm!

Geek Weekly: Scrolling LED Belt Buckle II Represents

Post a Comment

Wear the label at the office or school of “the computer guy” proudly (as I do) with the Scrolling LED Belt Buckle II, for the tech geek in all of us.

No longer will messages have to remain subliminal or dress codes have to be so strict and so utterly lame.

It is true that the bank, the corporate headquarters, and the classroom all infringe upon one’s freedom of expression at times, but rarely are the belt buckles made a part of the societal censorship madness, and so stylin’ is placed back in our geeky hands once again.

Quantum Stealth Invents Invisibility Cloak, But It Might Be Hocus Pocus

Post a Comment

“Give me the money that has been spent in war and I will clothe every man, woman, and child in an attire of which kings and queens will be proud….” Said the great 19th century lawyer and politician Charles Sumner. Yes, war profiteering has been age old past time, because there’s a lot of money in war. But you could argue that Canadian design company HyperStealth Biotechnology Corp., “Leaders in Camouflage, Concealment and Deception,” a leading supplier of camouflage uniforms, is doing it’s best to protect our soldiers by keeping them hidden amidst of plethora of terrestrial backdrops.

HyperStealth currently holds the copyrights for over 10,000 patterns including “Smartcamo” which changes its color to match the background of the wearer in almost all environments. And now HyperStealth has taken their technologies straight into science fiction with “Quantum Stealth” – which if it does what it says it does, will be the world’s first invisibility cloak.
