Loc8tor: Finds your lost items faster than your spouse can

One of the worst feelings in the world is not being able to find your wallet or house keys; well that and perhaps drowning. On the lost items front though, there is a new gadget which will be indispensable for the scatter brained. The Loc8tor will find your keys, wallet, remote control, salami sandwich etc, just by the touch of a button.

The Rolling Razor – Is This The Future Of Shaving?

You might think there are a wide variety of razors out there, but in reality most are just variations on the same theme – knife on a stick. Earlier this year a new type of razor was introduced to the market which eschews the standard. Meet the Rolling Razor – two knives on a ring.

Solar cell tree

This might look like quite a funky bit of art but it also doubles up as a solar charger for all your small gadgets like MP3s, cameras and mobile phones. Just sit it near a window and it’ll store up energy, ready to juice up whatever you plug into it. Save money and the planet at the same time.

Interactive Table Cloth by Clemens Winkler

The designer went ahead to place sensors all over the tablecloth in order to reveal a predetermined pattern when any interaction takes place and thus leaves a ‘sign of time’.

The Solar Tree is an awesome way to incorporate stylish technology into everyday life. I’m sold!

joel Says: October 31, 2008 at 10:05 am

Some of my best ideas come when I shave, perfect!

anthony winner Says: October 31, 2008 at 11:03 am

My daughter would love the interactive mirror, she uses about 3 dry erase markers a month on her mirror to keep all her todo’s straight!

john Says: October 31, 2008 at 11:12 am

i definitely need the loc8tor

Jenna Says: October 31, 2008 at 11:20 am

Interactive tablecloth would have been a godsend for boring dinners of my youth.

Donnell Says: October 31, 2008 at 11:23 am

I like the Solar Tree perfect for technophiles who want free energy and the appearance of plant life.

Amir Says: October 31, 2008 at 11:54 am

Nice Tree . I wish I have it

David Evans Says: October 31, 2008 at 12:05 pm

The loc8tor…. I need about 1 of them with 100 of the finding devices as the older I get the more I’m losing things all over the house. My wife is the current loc8tor and she is getting tired of me losing things all the time. Thank goodness I married her.

Olivia King Says: October 31, 2008 at 12:18 pm

Interactive Mirror, an excuse to spend extra time in front of a mirror!

Juergen Says: October 31, 2008 at 12:39 pm

The Loc8tor – very much needed, plus a great geek toy. That is, if you remember were you left it 😉

Max Rascon Says: October 31, 2008 at 12:42 pm

The solar tree would have to be the best one. Not having to worry about finding an outlet, that would rock. Plus you could keep it anywhere the sun shines. This is the clear winner.

Jerry Says: October 31, 2008 at 1:01 pm

I like the Interactive mirror =] so awesome because one minute your looking at yourself(because of course your awesome) and then the next your panting all over the mirror with lights how cool is that!

Vadim Says: October 31, 2008 at 1:01 pm

Solar Tree is a very nice design.

Ron Says: October 31, 2008 at 1:37 pm

Considering all the time I spend looking for items that have been misplaced around the house, the Loc8tor has to be the best thing around.

Josh Says: October 31, 2008 at 1:39 pm

useful centrally located gadget charger that looks good too? too cool.

Skippy Says: October 31, 2008 at 3:50 pm

Like the mirror. Would definitely come in handy.

Helard Says: October 31, 2008 at 4:18 pm

I love the concept of the “Solar cell tree”, elegant, environmentally friendly, ingenious. Cool to place in the office, living, near to the window and recharge!!

Bob Says: October 31, 2008 at 10:51 pm

The Loc8tor looks pretty cool. The only concern would be how to keep track of the locating device itself. It looks to be about the size of a tv remote which I am constantly losing.

Mike Says: November 1, 2008 at 6:37 am

the solar tree is amazing, I hope it gets to market soon

Kris Says: November 1, 2008 at 7:40 am

The solar cell tree looks a fantastic invention. Very usable and portable.

Clay Says: November 1, 2008 at 8:55 am

Wow! The mirror looks awesome, like something you would see in a movie like iron man. Sweet!

Jessica Says: November 1, 2008 at 11:07 am

The solar cell tree is both functional and a beautiful design.

Mark Roedel Says: November 1, 2008 at 11:41 am

I voted for the bookmark, because I liked the style. (Besides, I read more than I lose things, charge things, or have ideas in wet environments.)

Ben Says: November 1, 2008 at 2:31 pm

The mirror is just plain cool.

NickW Says: November 2, 2008 at 6:09 am

The rolling razor looks cool

Damir Says: November 2, 2008 at 9:11 am

I like the solar tree design.

spuds50 Says: November 2, 2008 at 9:44 am

Tree is the best. It looks good and you can save on electricity.

Justin Says: November 2, 2008 at 2:39 pm

The interactive mirror for sure…I mean come on I get bored just staring at the mirror while brushing my teeth, I need some interactiveness!! YOU KNOW IT’S COOL!

Krysta Says: November 3, 2008 at 8:12 am

One more vote for the solar cell tree.

Len Says: November 3, 2008 at 11:21 am

go tree!

Max Young Says: November 3, 2008 at 3:13 pm

The bookmark – how great would that be to use in library books- freak out a librarian today!

Jack M. Says: November 3, 2008 at 6:37 pm

I love little trees let alone one that charges my gadgets!

Keri Says: November 3, 2008 at 6:39 pm

Loc8tor – It knows everything!

Chase Says: November 10, 2008 at 6:18 pm

The snowball launcher looks so cool. I love throwing snowballs at my friends during the winter. I have some pretty epic snowball fights during the winter and having the snowball launcher I would totally own in the battles! Defiantly need to get myself one of those.

Syz Says: November 29, 2008 at 5:17 am

This tree is really cool, It´s makes us thinking in the process that´s trees use to transform light on energy.
