The Tyrant alarm clock you see here is extremely unforgiving, which could be a good thing for folks who find it extremely difficult to wake up in the mornings. Three minutes after it goes off without having you turn it off, it will start to make random phone calls from your cell phone. Not good if you still have a list of your ex-girlfriends' numbers. To make matters worse, if you happen to have to wake up early, imagine how the person on the other line would feel. Good thing this is but a concept design - would be nice to see it materialize in the real world though.

Everex's Cloudbook range now comes with WiMAX connectivity, never mind that the service has not fully rolled out yet. This will only be available on the 8.9" machines, ruling the 10.2" model out of the equation. The WiMAX-enabled Cloudbooks will hit Taiwan and Japan at the end of August, while those of us living Stateside will only be able to run our fingers over it this September. No idea on whether these machines will be manufactured by FIC or powered by VIA's OpenBook reference design, so stay tuned.
A spy camera which was believed to cost a whopping £10,000 was placed inside a black bag beside a notorious illegal fly-tipping site, where it managed to capture an image of the beauty you see on the right with a rubbish fetish. I jest - ithe disguise was so goo, it managed to fool workers for Chichester District Council, West Sussex, into clearing the camera as they believed it was actual rubbish. There is no word on whether the camera was recovered or not, but it goes to show that sometimes the best of intentions could backfire - badly, on you.
As widely believed, the BlackBerry Thunder and the 9500 are the same device, and it will be available on an exclusive basis on both Verizon and Vodafone networks. This means you will be able to enjoy high speed mobile browsing thanks to HSPA and EV-DO support. The touch screen display itself has a resolution of 360 × 480, and the 9500 is sized larger than the 3G iPhone. It will be launched with the BlackBerry OS 4.7.0 operating system at a yet undisclosed price.
Isn't this cute? The Yamanote Line tape measure pays homage to one of the most awesome train line in Tokyo, with the green and silver cars being an icon in the metropolis that ferries thousands of people each day to and from their destinations without missing a beat. This tape measure is worth a purchase by any means, even if you don't appreciate trains. Think about it - once the tape measure is spoilt, you can always pass it to a kid and let him play with it as a toy train. Interestingly enough, pulling out the tape will reveal individual station names in sequence on top of the centimeter readings. Would be cool if they had a whole set.
The Zero cell phone case is made from recycled tire tubes, which is a good thing since the Japanese do consume a fair number of electronics throughout their lifetime, and they could certainly play a big role in keeping the environment clean by relying on recycled products. These Zero cell phone cases are spiffy looking, and are available from Strapya World. Of course, you can still see where the case originated from as some of them still sport lettering such as "Yokohama" which saw better days. Ah well, at least these recycled tires don't have to put up with roadkill anymore, but will just have to be content with sitting in a handbag or hanging off from a belt.
The Riddex Plus Pest Repeller could not have been released at a better time as summer arrives, helping keep your home pest-free. All you need to do is plug it in any nearby power outlet and it will get to work straight away, offering a protective radius of approximately 2,000 square feet by sending mice, roaches, rats and other household pets scurrying away. There are no pesticides or chemicals involved, so you don't have to worry about growing a third limb five years down the road. The Riddex Plus Pest Repeller comes with an integrated nightlight and will retail for $19.99.
The Eclipse pain from Alsa Corporation is pretty spiffy since it changes colors the moment heat is applied to the surface. The paint consists of a basecoat that can change from either black to white or blue to white, but think of the possibilities involved since this is just a single basecoat. Imagine applying such paint to your mouse or keyboard - at least it will tell you whether your pesky colleagues have been snooping around your computer while you're away from the desk. They might deny it, but the evidence of a color changed mouse doesn't lie. Of course, you can take the extra step by performing some forensic tests on the mouse, but that'd be going too far methinks. What are the other applications you can think of for this paint?
The i2i Stream from Thanko is an MP3 streaming device that allows you to share your music with other friends within a 10 meter radius. All you need to do is hook up your portable audio player into the i2i Stream and you're good to go. The i2i Stream features a frequency response of 10Hz-24,000Hz, a bit-rate of 16bit at 48kbps stereo and an audio latency of 20ms which should be reasonable enough for casual listening unless you're a discerning audiophile. Even so, what are you doing with the MP3 standard? The Thanko i2i Stream will retail for approximately €89.
