DS-Controlled Robot

Sit back, watch the video, and prepare to be AMAZED. I don’t even have to say anything, it is what it says. Yeah but you know me, I’ll say something anyway (my blog, mine!).

Sit back, watch the video, and prepare to be AMAZED.

I don’t even have to say anything, it is what it says. Yeah but you know me, I’ll say something anyway (my blog, mine!). This is a Pekee Robot modified by a bunch of engineering students to be controlled purely using NDS technology. Six ways to control it:

The D-pad, touchscreen, motion sensors, stylus strokes, a target mode modeled after Super Mario 64 DS, and voice commands via the mic.

Whew.

The pros: You + your DS + this amazing idea = world domination. That and enough bragging rights to erase all your sad childhood memories. Spycam? Maybe.

The cons: It’s homebrew, you can’t have it.

Bubblegum Sequencer

What could be better than music and candy coming together to form one glorious gadget and symbolize youth, peace and happiness? Well, a lot of things (and I do acknowledge that the latter half of that sentence was weird), but this still ranks high up there on my list. It’s true, this sequencer uses bubblegum as...

Bubblegum Sequencer

What could be better than music and candy coming together to form one glorious gadget and symbolize youth, peace and happiness?

Well, a lot of things (and I do acknowledge that the latter half of that sentence was weird), but this still ranks high up there on my list. It’s true, this sequencer uses bubblegum as its markers. Here’s how it works:

A grid of holes, consisting of several rows with 16 holes each is the canvas. On it, you arrange colored gumballs. The 16 columns represent the 16th-notes in a measure. Each color is mapped to a specific sample.

The Bubblegum Sequencer senses the position of the balls through a video camera mounted underneath the surface. The captured image is processed by a computer vision routine that computes the average color in each hole. The colors are quantized and mapped to notes. For each note, a MIDI event is generated and sent to the operating system’s MIDI bus.

Well that’s probably a bunch of jibberish to many, so basically it’s a gadget that uses the gumball colors to determine which “sound” to play. Okay because I’m lazy to explain more, I’ll just show you the video.

The pros: It’s fun! Come on, bubblegum and music, how can you go wrong? After playing, you and some friends can pop those candies into your mouths, completing the gumball experience.

The cons: The gumballs are food, so you’ll have to replace them every once in a while, that is if you don’t want them to go to waste. They could’ve used marbles… but then again. Bubblegum. Fun.

The Floor-cleaning DVD Player

It sort of seems like a good idea, but then again what an odd combination — it’s a robot that cleans floors and shows you DVD movies through the projector on its head. It was manufactured by Tmsuk, and is officially called the RIDC-01. The pros: You will have clean floors. You can watch movies. At...

Floor Cleaning Robot

It sort of seems like a good idea, but then again what an odd combination — it’s a robot that cleans floors and shows you DVD movies through the projector on its head. It was manufactured by Tmsuk, and is officially called the RIDC-01.

The pros: You will have clean floors. You can watch movies. At the same time. It also had voice recognition.

The cons: You have a vacuum cleaner. You have a DVD player. This thing costs 85,000 USD. And what do you say to it? “You missed a spot. Oh, and could you go back to 24:51? That was funny.”

The Musical Chair

GET IT? Okay I gotta admit, this looks cool. I found this on Jacob Mathew’s site, the same guy who gave you the Stereo Stilettos. By the way, that’s really what he calls it, the Musical Chair. Ha. Here’s his description: Nourishing our appetite for the visceral, music provides for us a feast of sensation. The...

The Musical Chair

GET IT? Okay I gotta admit, this looks cool. I found this on Jacob Mathew’s site, the same guy who gave you the Stereo Stilettos. By the way, that’s really what he calls it, the Musical Chair. Ha. Here’s his description:

Nourishing our appetite for the visceral, music provides for us a feast of sensation. The savory sounds that exude from this compression loaded design will feed that hunger for experience. Relish in the robust lows that emanate from the calcium carbonate poly-coned woofer seated in the belly of the chair. This delectable design is certain to add a little flavor to any dining experience.

….Okay.

The pros: It looks cool. Talk about being one with the music — you’ll really feel the music, literally.

The cons: If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably noticed that it looks like a funnel. That’s right. A funnel.

Stereo Stilettos

One word: Terminatrix. But yeah I’ll shower you with more words anyway, coz that’s how I do. They’re called the Stereo Stilettos, designed by a certain Jacob Mathew (that’s not a typo), for Mathew Audio. His love for music and tacky shoes have brought us this hit-or-miss contraption. As you may have guessed, the shoes are...

Stereo Stilettos

One word: Terminatrix.

But yeah I’ll shower you with more words anyway, coz that’s how I do.

They’re called the Stereo Stilettos, designed by a certain Jacob Mathew (that’s not a typo), for Mathew Audio. His love for music and tacky shoes have brought us this hit-or-miss contraption. As you may have guessed, the shoes are speakers. The leather purse? That’s actually a subwoofer. Not bad.

The pros: I’m guessing this has good sound since the designer claims to have a passion for music. It’s definitely gonna be unique, too. Blah blah boring pros.

The cons: In my opinion, the beauty of it is lost when you put each shoe on either end of your PC. Also, be careful if you’re giving this as a gift or placing it near other people’s shoes and purses, the confusion might cost you. Or it would make for a good prank (hey might be a pro after all…).

I’m kidding.

Don’t Touch Me!

Pink and round, with a heart-shaped nose and that sweet stare. Would you believe me if I said that this seemingly harmless little accessory, has the power to immobilize a 300-pound man? Well, you shouldn’t. Coz it can’t. It’s called the “Don’t touch Me! Lovely Pink Seal Stun Gun Lovely Taser Weapon” (Yes it is Japanese), and...

Pink Seal Keychain

Pink and round, with a heart-shaped nose and that sweet stare. Would you believe me if I said that this seemingly harmless little accessory, has the power to immobilize a 300-pound man?

Pink Seal Stun Gun

Well, you shouldn’t. Coz it can’t.

It’s called the “Don’t touch Me! Lovely Pink Seal Stun Gun Lovely Taser Weapon” (Yes it is Japanese), and costs around 15.5 USD.

The pros: This is just a toy. It may work for self-defense, as it packs a mean(ish) 195V per zap. So that’s like sticking your fingers into a power outlet. Yes, I do consider that a pro. :D

The cons: I personally think it would’ve been better as an actual taser. I don’t know about you, but there’s something about those innocent eyes and blank stare that really does shout “deadly weapon” to me.
