Light Up inSoft pillow will have you awake all night

Light Up inSoft pillow will have you awake all night

When it comes to gadgets, its not often that one will catch your eye for its softness, but that's just what designer Takaaki Oguchi has done with this one - it's a light up pillow. Without a doubt the most comfortable bit of technology I've seen all week, Oguchi's "inSoft" LED light pillow has the ability to light from within without making your ear go "ouch!" Through a combination of cool-burning LED lights and padding that'll allow just so much light to travel through it surrounding the light module, Oguchi may well have created the nightlight every kid is staying awake at night screaming about.

iPhone 5 More @ Less Concept Phone cuts the Bulk

iPhone 5 More @ Less Concept Phone cuts the Bulk

Though you may think your iPhone is already as small as its going to get, industrial designer Zeki Ozek has a different idea: cut MORE off of the non-display hardware off than the already ultra-minimalistic iPhone 4 already has, taking a page out of Android's next OS version Ice Cream Sandwich's book of button-less workings and adding on gestures. Changes in this hypothetical device include OS changes as well of course, including the ability to assign one app to each of your fingerprints - if there's one thing I want in life from a future phone, it's that.

Alternative Alarm clock can wake you with whatever you plug into it

Alternative Alarm clock can wake you with whatever you plug into it

I am not a fan of alarm clocks. The shrill alarm is very annoying and my wife never ceases to jump and freak out when the alarm starts beeping all the sudden. Waking to the radio is a bit better, but it never ceases to lose the signal and wake me to white noise that is easy to sleep though. Mostly I wake to one of the tones on my iPhone and that works well enough.

Cornobi (Wan): The picnic’s only hope

Cornobi (Wan): The picnic’s only hope

I bet when the Jedi have their annual picnic each year, this is the corncob holder that they use. This thing is really cool, yet weird at the same time. I almost had a stroke trying to figure out how to meld Star Wars jokes and Beavis and Butthead references into one post. You truly would be the Great Cornholio with one of these. This is a concept product from Shed Samovar and it should be made.

Eyeshadow of the future uses LEDs not makeup

Eyeshadow of the future uses LEDs not makeup

I admit that Ii have never understood makeup. I can get that women wear the stuff to make them look better (so they think) and cover up things on the face like blemishes. The part I have never understood is why some women wear makeup that is in weird colors or is plastered on their face. To each their own, I guess. I once knew a woman that had her makeup tattooed on her face so she would wake up ready to go. Geeky women or anyone else that likes eyeshadow and raves will appreciate this LED eyeshadow.
