Time Your Lights with LITE-ON

Saving power and electricity is our primary motto now. Our environment is being deceased day by day and we the habitants on this globe must be responsible to promote eco friendly products. And the designers should be appreciated for their work and contribution in this regard.

We may often go to many buildings and passageways during nights and as we pass through staircases or corridors, we switch on nearby lights and pass the way. Who will switch off the lights? The purpose is of is very little importance, I mean we use the lights for a short span of time but the energy consumed is more. To counter this mishap, designers developed a new gadget i.e; LITE-ON, a timer switch which switch off the connected electrical appliances after a specified time.

Control The Phone With Your Brain

This is the new phase of wireless evolution. After the success experiments on Brain Gate System, its applications are emerging worldwide. And the new technology is controlling a phone with the help of your brain signals. It is an excellent wireless technology which will bring a revolution in the coming gadget world. To control a device with your brain signals, here a headset is used. This was developed by XWave. When you wear this headset, it will capture tiny electrical signals from your rain and converts them to signals which can control a phone. Right now this technology is limited to iphones and ipads, but will be extended to other devices soon.

Shockproof Plug Concept

Every one who deals with electrical appliances directly or partially are aware of electric shock due to the faulty connections or loose contacts or broken wire. Actually we may not predict the fault until we get a shock. But, it is not a major problem until it is household power supply. If the same case occurs for an industrial power unit, we may loose our lives too. This is of such serious issue. Now, designers saves the day by inventing a new solution for this problem.

Bus Cum Train - Biway

Biway is a vehicle concept emerged from Michelin Challenge Design 2010. It is an excellent concept which runs on electric energy analogous the current train transport. The speciality in this design is that it is a zero emission public transport which acts individually on city roads as electrical vehicles. But when two or more are combined, they can follow a track and can run like a train. That means, a single bus is a bus which can move on roads. Also if two or more buses are comblned, they can run like a train facilitating more number of passengers. You should note that these run on electrical energy which is eco friendly to some extent.

Heat Water with An Electric Bulb

Confused with the title? What you seen is right. It is a water heater that works with an electric light bulb. Hey, don't sink into thoughts searching for the possibility. Once again, this design is made by a student! Yes, a student (graduate) from Ecole Nationale superieure d' Art et de Design de Saint-Etienne named Estille Sauvage has brought us this fascinating eco friendly design. We all know the power consumption levels of existing water heaters and geysers. We can use this one some times, though it heats little amount of water at a time. Read the rest of the topic to know how it works.

Use Mouse Without it!!

Free your hands! The Mouseless, completely invisible, is an innovative mouse that allows you to interact with the computers as the physical mouse do, while not needing to grapping it (of course you cannot!) It consists of an Infrared (IR) laser beam (with line cap) and an Infrared camera, both of which are built inside the computer. So when the user cups his/her hand on the surface where the computer sits on, a laser beam then appear underneath the hand, allowing him/her to interact with the computers. Really magical, right? This project is the part of Sixth Sense Technology developed by Pranav Mistry, a MITian.
