It's pretty unique and it changes as you want, so you can have a whole new look at your place. This concept was designed by the incomparable Amirko! It’s one big wall of turn-triangles. Each of these triangles has different colors on them – white – black – and a slightly unique rainbow shade. As you can see in the first picture here, when the color is on full blast, it makes a mural all it’s own. (via yankodesign.com) Portable Subwoofer For Your MacBook Not happy with your MacBook speakers? Sound a little flat don’t they? The Bassjump is a USB powered subwoofer that turns your MacBook into a sweet sound system. It looks like an aluminum Mac mini which perfectly compliments the new unibody aluminum MacBooks.

(via Design Spotter) Tunebug Using SurfaceSound technology, the new Tunebug Vibe ($70) lets you take a speaker with you basically anywhere you go. The Tunebug sports a stylish, triangular brushed metal body, an illuminated power button, and a standard 3.5mm input for compatibility with a wide range of audio sources, but the real magic is in the NXT-powered SurfaceSound Speaker, which turns nearly any surface — although hollow ones work best — into a makeshift speaker. (via Uncrate) HP G62t Core i3 Notebook Sony just announced a few colorful Core i3/i5 notebooks, and now HP is following suit with its new G62t. Its design closely resembles HP's $1300 Envy, but you'll pay less than half of that for the G62t's base configuration. That $600 base model has respectable specs, too: a 2.13GHz Core i3 processor, a 160GB hard drive, 3GB of DDR3 RAM, a 15.6-inch (1366 x 768) LED display, DVD burner, and three USB 2.0 ports. It's also upgradeable to a Core i5 or i7 CPU, a 500GB hard drive, and 4GB RAM. You can also tack on a Blu-ray player and a multi-format memory card reader. (via Gizmodo)

Cheers! ;) Short Circuit Shelf The name ‘Short Circuit Shelf’ conjured up images of my handful of DVDs and books being held up by a wise-cracking, sentient robot, but this is cool too. Created by Alexandra DiCairano, the Short Circuit Shelf is actually designed to look like a circuit board when mounted on your wall, which, according to Alexandra, “have a beautiful and efficient pattern that perfectly serve their function…” (via OhGizmo!) Jar Lamps Most lamps looks like something you'd build with an erector set. London-based Noon Studio's Jar Lamps go for something a little softer, a little simpler, and a lot more beautiful. Instead of shining light directly on your desktop, these desk lamps throw a nice even glow on your workspace. (via Gizmodo) Dyson Air Multiplier Fan The air is pulled into the bottom of then fan, the air is then sent out through a tiny slit around the edge of the fan ring, and that air coming out pulls more air with it which ends up being around 16 times the amount of air the fan pulls in. The fan comes in two parts, as you can see in the photo below, the one we tested featured a blue and silver design, it also comes in a couple of other colors which include white and silver, and silver iron.

(via Trendir) MSI Notebook MSI's new CX420, CR420 and CR720 laptops aren't much for looks, but under the hood you can find new-gen Core i Series processors across the board and ATI Radeon HD5470 graphics in the CX420. Sure, there's only Intel integrated HD graphics in the CR420 and CR720, and the 1366 x 768 14-inch displays in the CX420 / CR420 are a bit of a letdown, but knowing MSI we're sure the prices for this trio will more than make up for any mild disappointments on the spec sheet. (via Engadget) Skullcandy Snoop Dogg Signature Skullcrusher Headphone With the Crusher in-line AA battery powered bass amplification and industry first vibration subwoofer speakers, they will literally pump the music right into your head!

(via Crib Candy) Cork Lamp loat by Benjamin Hubert for Unique Copenhagen. The lamps are hand-turned out of Portuguese agglomerate cork blocks, the waste bits from the production of wine stoppers. Even the high volume of waste from creating the lamps can be converted back into blocks and turned again. The cork emits a wonderfully warm glow when lit and the simplicity of the shape suits the agglomerated pattern of the material. (via Design Trends) Ipod and Iphone DualLink Cable The duaLink cable for iPod and iPhone contains its own miniature USB hub, a single USB connector on one end, and two iPod connectors on the other end. If the promise of charging and / or syncing multiple devices from the same USB port hasn't blown your mind, the company has been thoughtful enough to place the whole shebang in a housing that seems to be a little more durable than the (admittedly not so durable) stock Apple cable. (via Engadget) Bookarc: Desktop Stand for MacBook If you use your MacBook with an external monitor, Bookarc will literally turn it into a mini-tower desktop by holding it vertically next to the monitor. This will also help declutter your desk, giving you much more space to work with. And it actually improves your MacBook's performance... when the MacBook is running closed in Bookarc, it will dedicate 100% of its video memory to the external monitor, so you'll enjoy a noticeable higher speed, specially when working on any graphics application. (via Holycool.net) Monster headphones The idea behind these is that they are meant to be used by music professionals. More specifically they headphones are made for DJs, sound engineers, producers and musicians. The $350 price point definitely reflects that part. They are meant to have better sound than the current Beats Solo, and be very durable in terms of build and the drivers inside due to the expected constant use. (via Gadgetell) Bookbook: Hardback Leather Case for MacBook "BookBook is a one-of-a-kind, hardback leather case designed exclusively for MacBook and MacBook Pro. Available in Classic Black or Vibrant Red, BookBook brings three levels of security to your prized Mac. First, the hardback cover and spine provide solid protection from the rigors of the road.

It would also mean a major overhaul to your typing technique. (via Gizmodo) Iron Man Decal Powered by Apple Arc Reactor This is a fine Iron Man decal telling your Apple light shine through his chest. Made of high quality vinyl and will not leave any residue if removed. (via Gizmodo) Mini Tornado Electra Lamp "Look closely at the swirling lighting of the Tornado Electra®.

It’s a table with nine surface compartments for various sized magazines underneath which there’s a space for keeping the magazines. (via Cribcandy) Jellyfish LED Lamp A personal color therapy light. Decide on the intensity and colour of the light via touch panel, choose your mood, then opt for backlighting or let the auto-cycle take over. Did we mention the 16 million colour variables? (via Moco Loco) Puzzle Calendar Create your own desktop calendar with this unique Puzzle Calendar made up of "Lego" type building blocks. Re-arrange the puzzle as often as you like, marking important dates with the special event icons. (via 7Gadgets) Light Touch Light Touch is only a reference product for now, but it features up-and-coming tech like holographic laser projection technology that allows it to create a bright, high-quality, always in focus WVGA resolution image — up to 10 inches — on nearly any surface, and pairs it with an infra-red touch sensing system to turn the projected image into a touch screen. (via Uncrate) Panasonic Real Pro Massage Chair Massage chairs have come a long way from the back-pinching, coin-operated monstrosities in most shopping malls, and the Panasonic Real Pro Massage Chair ($5,500) is a great example. It features a unique trunk rotation and pelvic tilt function that combines a large seat airbag with a smaller one to grasp and gently twist the seat and thigh area, the Junetsu massage technique that uses one-second circular thumb movements to quickly loosen up tight muscles. (via Uncrate) MSI Projector PC MSI is sure in a conceptual mood at this year's the CES, and one of the odder combinations was this Projector PC. The unit pumps HD video onto a wall at about the quality of a mini projector (though certainly a step above a pico), but for convenience's sake it has a PC and DVD drive built right in. MSI plans to pair it with a wireless mouse and keyboard for living room use, but we're still not sure we see a huge advantage over plugging a nettop into a projector -- outside of the novelty factor, of course. (via Engadget) Microsoft Arc Keyboard Well, it looks like Microsoft still has a bit more stuff in store for CES that didn't slip out ahead of its big keynote, with it now announcing its new Arc Keyboard that will exclusive to Best Buy (at least initially). Like its Arc Mouse, this one is slim and high on style, and relatively light on any extraneous features, although you will get a 2.4GHz wireless receiver that can be tucked away in the keyboard, and at least a few extra function keys. Look for this one to be available February 21st for $59.95. (via Engadget) Asus ROG G73jh Gaming Notebook Processing comes in the form of an Intel Core i7 processor, and graphics is provided by an ATI Radeon HD 5870 GPU which is capabale of DirectX 11.

(via 7 Gadgets) Recoiling Socket In The Wall Rambler Socket maybe the solution most of us are looking for as far as extension cords are concerned. I mean if you hit “Extension Cord” on YD, for most of the posts you will see readers nitpicking and finding fault with the design. Here’s why Rambler Socket will knock your socks off. (via Crib Candy) Zip earphones Though MP3 players guide me to the world of music times and again, the earphones, or rather the messy wires of earphones always upset me. Luckily the designer Ji Woong has created the new earphones with a zipper shape, which allows us to zip the earphones up when no longer using them. Cool. (via Crib Candy) Ogle Pendant Lamp Ogle has the functionality of a spotlight combined with the elegance of a pendant lamp. The lamp comes in a matte black soft lacquer finish and LED fitting. (via Crib Candy) iMac CS Mod Do you have even the slightest clue what you get when you shove a perfectly operational Mac mini, JBL Spot subwoofer and WMF1 coffeemaker into a perfectly defunct iMac DV case? The iMac CS, that's what. In one of the most bizarre and aspirational mods we've seen in quite some time, one Klaus Diebel has managed to combine three devices that wouldn't typically be shoved within the same enclosure... into the same enclosure. (via Engadget) Balding Memo Pad As if it wasn’t bad enough you had to reach for a sticky note every few minutes in order to remember something, this cleverly designed memo pad also reminds you that you’re probably going to lose your hair, in addition to your memory, as you get older.

(via Slash Gear) PC Prankster The Prankster is highly annoying, but it’ll never activate the ‘enter’ key or close or save documents, so it’s mostly mischievous, not super-dangerous. However, it probably shouldn’t be used on computers that control nuclear reactors, security systems for genetically recreated dinosaur parks and/or zombie experimentation units, captured alien spacecraft or freezers packed with delicious ice cream.
