Magic Carp Pet turns static rug into aquarium of printed fish

Magic Carp Pet turns static rug into aquarium of printed fish

What we've got here is a design by John Leung which exists as two separate pieces: first, the table which is a simple slate-bars top made in black, the other the carpet which shows fish in a strange array - together they swim before your eyes. What you're looking at is only the latest representation of one of the oldest optical illusions in the books, the slates tricking your eyes into believing that each line of the fish is a new frame in the living video you're seeing. The same thing happens when you watch a movie, only here it's done without moving parts.

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.

Pivot Power Strip by Quirky Makes Charging Easier

Pivot Power Strip by Quirky Makes Charging Easier

We have all been there, 30 outlets, but only able to use 6. Nothing is more frustrating than buying a monster power strip with 30 or more outlets only to find most of them are un-useable. Not because there is something wrong with the outlets, but the shape of the power adapter you are plugging in ends up covering 2 or 3 additional outlets. Then there are those fat power adapters that can only be plugged in from one angle and naturally that angle makes almost half the power strip useless. Pivot Power, from Quirky has a solution. Pivot Power is a flexible power strip that can help reduce some of that frustration.

Pure Sun Uses Sun’s Rays to Provide Green Light

The light itself isn't the color green, but it's certainly less likely to put you in the poorhouse via electricity bills. This is the Pure Sun lamp designed by Denmark-based Igland Design who've billed this object as "a table that doubles as a light source, using only the sun.
