Now Free– Checkie! Image based checklist app

Items that are often left behind when leaving home, such as a schoolboy’s handkerchief, grocery items, baby wipes, etc. etc… Checkie! helps you remind those items with fun!

Everybody’s busy. So the timer directly starts the app and images are used instead of text so you can see and know what it is at a glance. All you have to do is touch the item when it’s ready. For the events that you don’t know when to happen, such as outing with a baby, an irregular business trip, just prepare lists of them ready at hand! What you can enjoy the most of Checkie! is when preparing a list so that even a little kid gets interested in the process, which helps her/him aware of self management of the belongings.

Users of Checkie! say it helps not only kids, adults and seniors who often leave something behind, but also people with ADD and ADHD.

It’s now available free on iPhone and iPad on App Store.

User Interface Concept: Desktop Lamp

The longest blank since I started this blog! I have some better ideas (than the one below) drawn in my Moleskine, but there’s no time to draw 3D to show here. So here’s one that could be rendered relatively fast.

If a very light material could be used for the light, a desktop lamp of this width might be possible.

For controlling the area to be lit, use the “pinch” gesture on the UI screen.

How about a USB memory stick that looks hungry when there’s no data in it?

Plug it in a USB port and start pumping it, then on the screen, the icon scatters what’s in it.

iAcqua

Maybe I’m into projector concepts.

It’s an iPhone stand with a transparent touch screen, speaker and projector.
Dock your iPhone at the top.

Tilt it slowly to either side and your photos, songs or movies start running one after another at random like water coming out from a fountain. Each image will disappear in a few seconds. You can touch a photo to see it, a movie to play and a music icon to play the song.

Now turn up the faucet and when the dish is full, the images will be spilled on the floor, which are actually projection from the stand. You can also tilt the stand to spill images little by little to a certain direction.
And now you can play with larger images.

When you play music, you can see the visualizer working. Spill the visualizer on the floor and you see “full-screen” projected visualizer!

National Geographic Channel!

One more thing I said I was going to tell is that some of the images of my mobile phone concept were on National Geographic Channel!
It’s “Super Diamonds” of Naked Science series.

By the way, I just bought a bag online that I fell in love at the first sight and it arrived yesterday! It’s a GORGEOUS BAG!
I’m planning to get a macbook air and carry it in the bag, but I wasn’t sure about the size. If you’re interested, please visit my Flickr page, where I (just started to) upload my everyday scene photos.
