Pad-Dock iPhone to Tablet Converter [not available]

Hehe, this is a brilliant product to me… And a bit ironic for Apple.

Fancy an iPad but can’t stretch the budget quite that far? Well why not get yourself a Pad-Dock? It’s a portable dock for your iPhone that magically turns it into an iPad! Well, maybe not magically, but it certainly is clever. Using a touch-screen magnifier, your iPhone screen is enlarged to the exact dimensions of an iPad. Most of the features that the iPad boasts about are on the iPhone anyway, so it only makes good sense to simply enlarge it. And, unlike the iPad, you can actually answer and make calls. Technology, eh?

An e-mail counting t-shirt [link]

Why have a t-shirt that counts your unread e-mails? Haven’t we exposed us to enough to electromagnetic waves?

Kidding aside, this DIY project was created using an Arduino Lilypad and a Bluetooth dongle. Once done, the shirt would display the number of unread e-mails on your chest. An Android phone continuously does the checking of your inbox for new messages.

The Discreet Window was designed by Gizem Boyacioglu & Ishac Bertran [link]

The Discreet Window is a blind that provides visual feedback for a home-office environment about the users’ work activity.

As an ambient display, The Discreet Window is a membrane that communicates the work intensity to both the home-office space and the outside. The more the user works, the less light is coming inside the room. Thus, the less visual contact there is between both sides of the window.

The concept aims to offer a self-improvement tool which provides an overview of working routines in a non-intrusive manner.
