Nintendo Not Slashing Console Prices

Bad news, bargain hunters; Nintendo has gone on record saying there are no imminent price cuts for the Nintendo Wii or DS. Satoru Iwata, the company's president, said he did not believe in the "model" of price slashing, as it tends to leave early adopters feeling a little disheartened. Though we do agree, surely early… » 4/28/08 1:35am 4/28/08 1:35am

Piezing Dress Concept Generates Electricity as She Walks

Oasis were right, she is electric, or at least she would be with the Piezing dress concept, designed by Amanda Parkes. The concept was shown off at the 2nd Skin: Imaginative Designs in Digital & Analog Clothing event in San Francisco, and it uses piezoelectric material around the joints to generate electricity when… » 4/27/08 10:30pm 4/27/08 10:30pm

Transparent Display Concept Proves There's a Use for Anything

The clip shows a completely transparent screen, which actually functions as the laptop's display panel. It's a cool idea, and one we have seen before, but don't you think it is ultimately pointless? If the concept ever saw the light of day, the technology would be distracting and counter-productive in a home… » 4/27/08 7:30pm 4/27/08 7:30pm

Eric's Huge iPhone is Large, Probably Doesn't Make Calls

The picture is all we have to go on, so what we can tell is this; it looks like an iPhone, but that probably isn't a real touchscreen. Sadly, we doubt it will be making any calls either. You know what they say; if it walks like a duck and it talks like a duck, chances are it is a duck. Well, in light of that… » 4/27/08 9:15am 4/27/08 9:15am

Azoo Eco-Desk Puts a Self-Cleaning Aquarium in Your Desk

I'm pretty sure Missy Elliot had something similar to Azoo's Eco-Desk, which has a self-cleaning tropical fish aquarium contained within a glass and aluminum body. Alas, hers was made by Lamborghini, so this is the poor man's / international female hip-hop star's iteration, but it's still a bit of cool for your… » 4/26/08 10:30pm 4/26/08 10:30pm

Glossy Black iPhone 3G is Just a Third-Party Case

The first allegedly-leaked shots of the 3G iPhone arrived earlier this month. Yesterday, Engadget claimed that the iPhone was going to look all black and shiny, like in the photo. (Although they didn't say that was a photo of the said unit.) Today, what we know for sure is that the thing in the photo is just a… » 4/26/08 7:45am 4/26/08 7:45am

MVRDV Floating Stairs Don't Show You the Way

MRDV is a design group that put together this absolutely crazy roof extension in Rotterdam. I'm wondering how they managed to get planning permission for the blue monstrosity, as it just doesn't look right on the outside. Frankly, it doesn't look right on the inside either—check out those crazy floating stairs in the… » 4/13/08 9:00pm 4/13/08 9:00pm

Indian Firefox Bus Probably Doesn't Have Wi-Fi

In what appears to be the endless spread of Firefox, a new addition to the unofficial Firefox catalog has been spotted—in India. On the back of a bus. We're guessing the bus doesn't have on board Wi-Fi to make use of its web browser of choice, but we admire the support. Also, if that text in yellow above the artwork… » 4/13/08 6:30pm 4/13/08 6:30pm

All Spark USB Hub Gives You Unwanted Responsibility

Captain Witwicky had an excuse; he didn't know the Decepticons were after the All Spark. In fact, he didn't even know what the Decepticons were. If you opt to purchase this All Spark USB hub, with four ports and retailing at £13.99 ($28), what exactly would be your excuse? Still, if you do decide the All Spark USB hub… » 4/13/08 5:00pm 4/13/08 5:00pm
