Blendie 2000 from students at MIT

Blenders haven’t changed a lot over the years, they blend. Its pretty basic and leaves little room for a huge change or revolution. However, MIT students have created the Blendie 2000 and have managed to completely change the way I look at a blender. The video included is the most hilarious thing I’ve seen that involves a blender.


WMF1 Coffee Pad makes just one cup of java

Clearly, making a single cup of coffee isn’t all that new of a concept, but how you do it can win you awards. Such as the 2007 Red Dot award the creators of this coffee maker won.

I am not a coffee drinker, I give it a go every so often just in case my tastes might have changed, but they never do, but I am a big fan of highly attractive consumer appliances such as this one. There is a single cup, and it takes a pre-measured 1-cup’s worth of coffee filter.


The Penguin Tea Timer

Those who drink tea on a regular basis know what a fine line it is when steeping your tea. Too long its bitter, to short and you aren’t going to get much flavor. Unless you set your regular egg timer to go off when its done, its easy to forget about it.


Miscea Sensor Activated Faucet – Never touch the faucet again

One doesn’t really consider a faucet to be very high-tech.. They generally only have a couple of functions; hot, cold and off. Simple, right? This cool faucet has got a few extra tricks up its sleeve.

The first cool feature of the Miscea Sensor Activated Facet is that you don’t ever actually need to touch it. This is actually really great because when most people wash their hands they first touch the faucet to turn it on, wash, then touch the faucet (where their germ-covered hands just touched) to turn it back off.. That feature alone makes this worth mentioning, however, it can also dispense soap and disinfectant lotion, also without touching it.


Hoesch Water Lounge – The ultimate bathtub

I’ll admit, I’m a guy that enjoys soaking in a hot bath at the end of a long day. I’ve always found it to be very relaxing, and it’s the one place in my house where I don’t have some sort of high-tech device where people can bug me. Unfortunately, most bathtubs aren’t exactly the most comfortable to lie in for very long. This one, however, looks like it would be awesome.


Dough-Nu-Matic – Screw Krispy Kreme, make them yourself

I’ve recently been on a Krispy Kreme kick. Though my latest venture to my local shop left me less than pleased. There were plenty of my favorite doughnuts there when I arrived, however, it was a good ten minuted before anyone actually arrived at the counter to help me, and by then the girl at the drive-thru had stolen them all. I was then informed that it was going to be at least a good twenty minutes or so before I would see any more. I’m still a bit sore over it, as that was just last night. Then I saw this wonderful device and I got quite excited.


Western Hair Dryer – Drying your hair can be murder

Sometimes when a company sets out to make a product look like something else, it turns out really bad. However, this cool hair dryer will blow your mind.


Mod – Brew coffee over the net

I love making things more technologically advanced than they need to be. If I can do something with a computer, or put one inside of something, you can bet your ass I’ll do it. Now I almost wish that I drank coffee.


Toaster Teapot – For the suicidal tea lover

One good way to ensure that you kill yourself dead is to plug in a toaster, jump in the tub (full of water) and drop in said toaster. I believe this was one of the ways Bill Murray killed himself in Groundhog Day (that movie was just messed up, and the single reason that I hate that stupid holiday). Now that you’ve been told of a simple way to commit suicide, I give you the Toaster Teapot.


Mr. Whippy – Ice cream for the depressed

Have you ever had one of those days where nothing goes right, and you just feel like crap? What’s the one thing that always cheers you up? No, I’m not talking about the Peanut Butter Jelly Time song, though that tends to do the trick too.


CEDIA 2007 – Beam’s Serenity QS

TVs, Home Entertainment systems and the lot aren’t the only things being shown off at CEDIA this year. Beam was there showing off their latest vacuum cleaner.


Koolatron Coin-Op Mini Fridge – Keep the moochers at bay

I have some friends that love to come over and head straight for my fridge. It seems like they’ve no more gotten their feet in the door then I hear them ask if I’ve got anything to drink (while opening a can of my Mountain Dew at the same time). Perhaps I need something like this mini fridge to keep the moochers at bay.
