DaanWe have a friend who got an air purifier that he could never figure out how to work, but then our friend is obviously not the brightest bulb in the chandelier. The result is that there is more dust on the thing than in it. Would that he had Joseph Kim’s Daan (Korean for column.) The prototype consists of simple disks that combine to handle any size room. Single ones can be used when you travel. The Daan is constructed of brushed aluminum and fabric.

Simpson Helmet MouseSimpson motorcycle fans will love this helmet that is actually a mouse made by motopuran. The device is licensed and built to scale with an optical system of 600 dpi, left and right click buttons, and a scroll wheel. Choose between black, silver, red, and yellow. Compatible with Windows 98 and newer and Mac OSX, the USB mouse comes with a removable cord for displaying for ¥2,380 (~$22.00.) That’s pretty clever but we think we will wait for the Harley version.

Unidrive

IFR (a company created by Spain’s motorsport engineer Ignacio Fernández Rodriquez) has designed the Unidrive. The gadget features a touchscreen to monitor and alter power output, ABS, brake balance, traction, and more. The units for driver and co-driver also have GPS, GPRS/GSM, accelerometers, and WiFi and Ethernet capability. In order to display the technology to the fullest extent, he and his team are installing them in Aspids (Spanish for asp.)

Boeing House

Pay attention, airlines. Here is a way to recap some of those losses. Imagine having a Boeing 727 as a home. The plane set Joanne Ussary back $2,000.00, cost $4,000.00 to move, and $24,000.00 to renovate. That’s not bad for a $30,000.00 investment. The stairs open with a garage door remote, and one of the bathrooms is still intact. And let’s not forget the personal jacuzzi in the cockpit. Sweet. The Boeing home is featured as part of a collection of creative conversions.

Wake n' Bacon Alarm ClockThis clock is just a bit to far fetched for those of us that don’t do breakfast. Place a frozen piece of bacon in the slot of Wake n’ Bacon before you hit the sack, and the clock goes off 10 minutes before you want to get up. When the alarm hits, the clock sends a signal to a small speaker that reroutes it to a relay, then to two halogen lamps. The result is that you awaken to the smell of cooked pig. Designer Matty Sallin is thinking of adding calendar aware to his prototype so it will not go off on weekends and holidays. We think he should add a self-cleaning feature and perhaps something that would ensure we don’t get food poisoning.

Brazil’s Meninos Design Studio were making custom USB hard drive cases for their friends and they were so popular that they decided to go public. Each one is hand-assembled in acrylic with a vinyl wrapper. You also have the option of uploading your own design with their custom template. Expect designer prices of $250.00 for only a case, or $400.00 to $620.00 for those with drives. We bet they could expand to make flash drives and clean up.

Casio Solar WatchCasio is working on Tough Movement for radio controlled solar watches. Using metal and plastic to reduce its weight, the chronograph style is reduced by 0.55mm while the analog is 4.11mm smaller. The watches will be shock resistant and have a hand correction with LED. The hands are detected at 55 minutes and correct themselves if the time doesn’t coincide with the IC counter. The company intends to use the technology on both their Oceanus and G-Shock series. Look for the GS-1200 to debut this September with a price of ¥42,000 (~$388.00) in Japan.

g Meso NotebookSylvania has unveiled their g Meso notebook. Weighing 2.2 lbs., it features 1.6 GHz Intel Atom and 80 GB hard drive with Windows XP Home or Ubuntu Netbook Remix. Available in black, white, yellow, or pink, it is webcam enabled, and has an 8.9-inch LED that is backlit. While it doesn’t look to be anything outstanding, it follows its previous g notebook, also not extremely “gotta have one.” That notebook runs for about $329.00 and we assume this one will go for about the same price.
