On the non-existent dash, a smartphone provides speed, mileage, turning signals and other ...

In automobile design there are concept cars and there are high concept projects. And now, apparently, there are concepts that exist on a seemingly LED-infused plain. Renault, with the help of famed British designer Ross Lovegrove, took the latter route, and developed one of the most enlightened concepts to come along in years: the Tron-styled Twin’Z Concept.  Read More

LiddUp Cooler is claimed to be the first cooler to offer integrated LED lighting

Picture the scene: a suitably awesome party is underway, and you go to grab a beer from a dark cooler, only to be met with several seconds of rummaging in cold ice. LiddUp Cooler offers to solve this admittedly minor problem by providing an LED-lit cooler ready for the next soirée.  Read More

The Futuro Cube from Princip

Before the arrival of those portable computers we like to call smartphones, screen-based games were a relatively simple, though extremely addictive, affair. The Czech Republic's Princip Interactive has taken the essence of classic low-res cellphone games like Tetris or Snake, added a good splash of color and sound, thrown in some challenging physical twists and turns, and created the Futuro Cube.  Read More

Philips 22 W (100-W incandescent equivalent) LED light bulb

Philips has announced that its 22-watt LED lightbulb is the first 100-watt tungsten equivalent bulb to have been awarded Energy Star certification. Often referred to as the A21, which is actually just one of several standard forms for light bulbs that this bulb happens to conform to, Philips' 22-W bulb puts out "nearly" 1,800 lumens for an efficacy of about 82 lumens/watt (lm/W). It's a fine spec, but not too dissimilar to the competition, which raises the question of why Philips' product has been singled out.  Read More

The FireFly recumbent tricycle outfitted with an LED-lit dome

If there are two things cyclists have to worry about, they would be the weather and making sure cars can see them. That's why the designers at GeoSpace Studio set about building a vehicle to resolve both issues. The FireFly is a recumbent tricycle outfitted with an LED-lit dome that keeps the rider visible and protected from the elements.  Read More

MuzaMoto has created some stylish motorcycle turn indicators that are installed at the end...

Rather than awkwardly jutting out from somewhere near the front forks on a motorcycle, Jon Ostojic has created a set of turn indicators that attach to ends of the handlebar. Undeniably stylish, the MuzaMoto Turn Signals provide all-round visibility thanks to front-, rear-, side- and bottom-facing LEDs. A bolt-on version is also available for front or rear mounting.  Read More

The diffused LED light is simply dazzling

I think it's fair to say that if you want a Bluetooth loudspeaker to stream music from your phone or player, the marketplace is somewhat generous with its choices. To stand out and be noticed, manufacturers need to add something extra to the pot – such as being able to change shape like the novel Transformative Bluetooth Hi-Fi System or really feeling the beat with the ONBEAT-X1 portable speaker. Taiwan's Yantouch has taken a decidedly more visually-stimulating route with its third-generation Black Diamond speaker, and Gizmag spent the last few weeks being mesmerized by its stunning light show.  Read More

The Lumio is proving popular with Kickstarter backers

Good news for lovers of things that look like books but are not books: the Lumio LED lamp we wrote about in January has bulldozed through its US$60,000 Kickstarter target, nosing ahead of $450,000 with 7 days of the campaign remaining.  Read More

A combined bike alarm, light and cable lock called BikeWatch has launched on Indiegogo

We love our bikes here at Gizmag. We really appreciate efforts to help keep our rides out of the hands of thieves, too, especially those innovations that serve more than one purpose – such as the Küat Racks Bottle Lock, or the Interlock seatpost bike lock. BikeWatch is just such a device, attaching to any 27.2 - 31.6 mm seatpost and combining a bike alarm, rear LED light and cable lock in one attractive unit.  Read More

The LEDs are integrated into a continuous lighting strip that goes all the way around the ...

It’s probably happened to all of us at one time or another ... we’re driving with a passenger in the car, we get distracted by some thought or task, and are suddenly jolted back into the present moment by our passenger yelling “Look out for that guy!”. Without their warning, we might have run into “that guy.” Given that many of us spend a lot of time driving alone, Continental has come up with an electronic version of that watchful passenger – it’s a driver assistance system that uses LEDs to alert zoned-out drivers to danger.  Read More
