Putting on more makeup than yesterday or not?

What if your mirror remembers how exactly you looked like when you had a perfect makeup?
Capture your face so that you can compare with it later.

Bookshelves for Super-Lazy People (like me)

My desk is always messed with unfinished books and magazines that I think I’ll need soon again, which my wife is always complaining about.
These are for people who feel even bothered just to stand up from your chair, grab the mess and put it away.

This book hanger works as a bookmark, too. When you don’t need the books, just slide them under the desk and everything looks neat!

Slide a tab to the other end and a part of the floor flips up so that the book goes down to a selected shelf.

Throw books in the box and put it back in the bookshelf. Easy!

Future of Internet Search: Mobile version

Mobile version

(Followed by a previous post “Future of Internet Search“)
This is what I wish the internet search will be able to do with a mobile device in the NEAR future. Touch screen, built in camera, scanner, WiFi, google map (hopefully google earth), google search, image search… all in one device. Like this way, when you can see a building through it, it gives you the image search result right on the spot.

Mobile version

Choose a building and touch a floor and it tells you more details of the building.
Well, it doesn’t have to be a building, but it can be any object you see. You can use it when you want to know a car model, an insect name, what kind of food is served at a restaurant and how much, who built a bridge, etc. etc. But as a designer myself, I hope it’s able to tell me a name of a font of the type I see, the size, color (in RGB), and so on.

Mobile version

It’s got a scanner built in, so you can use it this way when you want to check the meaning of a word in the newspaper, book, magazine, etc.

Mobile version 

It would be much easier to read a real book. You can use the dictionary, wikipedia, thesaurus and anything else available on the web. What do you think?
