Pop It!

I’m pretty sure I see this beach ball circling on my desktop for at least 10 minutes a day in total. I don’t know what’s taking so much time (especially when I’m using Illustrator CS5). What do you do when you can’t wait any more?

Well, when I can’t stand it any more, I really want to pop this ball.

So I want a tool like a dart I can throw at the ball.

Yeah of course when you hit it, it pops with the popping sound! I’m sure it will relieve your stress (to some extent).

Post-It on Desktop Icons

This is simple and it might have been used already, but I really want to paste a post-it on a desktop icon so that I won’t forget what I should do with it. So if anybody knows a plugin like this, please let me know!!

Post-it colors, font size should be customizable just like “Stickies” (a default mac application).

Quick Look (a quick preview feature) or hover the cursor to see the enlarged image of the post-it.

iPhone Dock Sketches

iHammock

I use my iPhone at work and at home. When I’m at work in the office, I can’t make it ring loud when there’s an incoming phone call or an email, so I change the setting to the silent (vibration) mode. But when it vibrates on my desk, it makes even louder noise than a beep, so I was thinking if I could make something soft to put my iPhone on so that it doesn’t rattle when vibrating, and thought that a hammock style would be fun. It looks like your iPhone is relaxing on a hammock, so I added a parasol that works as a solar power battery charger. You open and flip the parasol in the sun to get electricity and close and fix it on the hammock to charge your iPhone.
“iHammock”?

Just for fun again.

iAcqua2

Wouldn’t it be nice if you had a 3D screen that displays stereoscopic images of music visualizer and stocked photos when your iPhone is docked? It’s like a combination of my old ideas (snow globe screen and iAcqua).

This one tilts a bit when your iPhone is docked, making the speakers and the transparent screen float.
It tells you when there’s a phone call and an email by rocking from side to side.

Time-Telling Vibration

This is the mobile phone version of “Touch ‘n’ Know The Time”. Many people use their mobile phones as alarm clocks (including myself), so this might be a little help.

In short, you squeeze the phone and it vibrates for a second. The more “vigorously” it moves, the sooner it is until the set time. So you can FEEL how much more you can sleep without opening your eyes to check what time it is. Oh how lazy we can be!

Pressure on both flanks activates the time-checking vibration for a few seconds.

The vibration interval and strength vary according to how much time left until the set time.

Oh, this phone? Yeah I thought you’d ask.
If you are ever able to completely customize your mobile phone on a website or something when ordering one, I’ll definitely make mine something like this. Does it remind you of one brand?

Time-Telling Vibration

By the way, I heard my ideas (fireworks projection and handgrip charger) were introduced in a British TV “Richard & Judy” and a Colombian newspaper “El Tiempo”. Is there a way I can take a look at them???

Sorry for the slow update. I have so many ideas scribbled in my Moleskine, but these days I just haven’t had enough time to have them rendered to introduce here. I’ll make a few posts about some future digital gadgets from next time.
