How often do you find yourself rushing back to the oven or the bathtub because you’ve left it on for too long and got distracted by the Internet or a pc game? You usually are too late and you find your turkey over baked or the tub over flowing leaving you with only regrets and sometimes a huge mess to clean up. The alarm on your mobile device is always sufficient enough but let’s be honest, finding it, setting the alarm and keeping it with u constantly can be tedious and troublesome.
So, why not use Timerrr? Timerrr is an online application that works similar to an actual countdown timer and has a maximum countdown of an hour. To use it, all you have to do hit the webpage and set the time. It’s that easy that anyone who knows how to open a web browser would know how to use it.
You can just drag the red pointer towards the preferred time and you’re just about done. When the countdown is over, you will be notified and the amount of time you lingered on the pc after the notice or the alarm had sounded, will also be displayed. If you are one that is into the classics, then you can also change the mode of the application to the egg timer version.
There will be no more regrets and no more sudden rushes, all with the help of Timerrr. Staying track of time can be as easy as breathing with Timerrr, the simple and fulfilling application.
For an industry which purportedly is one of the most revolutionizing and innovative of all, some things have remained relatively unchanged for decades in the computing sector. The basic design of the mouse for instance can hardly be differentiated from that of the original design created more than a few decades earlier. The only small detail that could perhaps pass off as an innovation is the modern use of laser technology to determine position compare to the trackball mouse; which was more prone to dirt and grime.
If you had ever found yourself yearning for a mouse that is in a league of its own, or are always fed up with the banal selection your local computer store can offer you, you might want to give serious consideration to the Kandenchi Designer Mouse. Sculpted and modeled after the basic design of a battery, the Kandenchi mouse is intended to be use upright as opposed to the face down position of a conventional mouse.
Although using the mouse might take some time to get used to, reviews and feedback have suggested the gadget is more comfortable than traditional mice after a certain period of usage. Make sure that your operating system is XP or higher in the case of Windows users or Mac OS 10.5 and above in the case of Macintosh consumers. Be prepared too to fork out at least $65 for the mouse. Individuality doesn’t come cheap after all.
Smart Fish has come up with a new idea that is pretty smart since no one likes to use the track pad on the keyboard. Most of us prefer to use a mouse when we browse the web on our laptops but we can’t navigate through our computer if our mouse is on a smooth surface and sometimes we tend to forget to bring our mouse when we travel.
So, Smart Fish invented a portable mouse bag that can also be used as a mouse pad. It is a mouse bag that can be transformed into a mouse pad in just a second. It also protects your mouse when it is in your bag and it saves a lot of luggage space.
The Mouse Pad Travel Pouch only comes in one colour which is black. To transform the mouse bag into a mouse pad, simply unzip the bag and you have a mouse pad in front of you. it isn’t an ideal mouse pad for gamers since it has zippers around it and you might not feel comfortable while playing game with it. When the mouse bag is unzipped, it becomes a 9 inch diameter mouse pad. It is made out of neoprene material so the mouse pad is smooth but the sides can be a little irritating.
When you are done using the mouse and the pad, simply place the mouse in the middle of the pad and zip it up. You now have a bag for a mouse! Simple isn’t it? The retail price for the mouse pad travel pouch is at $15.
Concept electronic products usually cause uproar among reviewers and consumers, but some remain as concepts and for some, the actual products do not deliver what was promised. However, once a concept product, the Cool Leaf keyboard has proven that it is not a let-down. The Cool Leaf is a keyboard with a mirrored surface, a product by Japanese company Minebea.
Making use of the popular touch screen technology, the mirrored keyboard is actually a big capacitive touch panel, with a reflective surface. To put it simply, it is a touch screen keyboard compatible with your existing computer. You may not be used to typing with a touch screen keyboard, without the keys and the clicking sound that a typical keyboard makes. Minebea has thought of this, and incorporated haptic feedback into the Cool Leaf, so that there will be a little vibration each time you hit a key.
Besides being cool, another advantage that the mirror keyboard renders is its easy cleaning. With the Cool Leaf, you don’t need to worry about dust getting caught between the keys and in the crevices anymore. And in case anything spills on it, all you have to do is to give it a good wipe, and it’ll be as clean as brand new. You don’t need to waste time and effort cleaning between keyboard keys anymore.
The only flipside is that is currently only compatible with Windows OS, so it may disappoint users of other operating systems. It is priced around $245 and available in Japanese, English, German, Italian and French layout.
Printers as the name suggests normally involves printing text or images of ink onto paper. However if I said to you the words Reverse Printer what would you think? Maybe something that does the complete opposite or reverse of a normal printer, i.e. a piece of hardware that sucks paper in the wrong way and removes the ink? Well that’s almost what we mean with the latest concept gadget published on Yanko Design.
Basically the Reverse Printer is a normal looking printer but it can remove ink from paper. It removes ink from the paper by using laser technology. You may be thinking why would you want to do that? Well I can think of two good reasons straight away.
Firstly, you may want to be eco-friendly and re-use or recycle the paper. Once ink has been stripped you can put it in a normal inkjet or laser printer and print on it again. You can keep repeating this process until the quality of the paper decreases that it is unable to be printed on. Secondly, I see it as a very useful way of removing sensitive data from paper. Lots of people these days shred their bank statements, however if someone goes through the bin and collects all the pieces they can easily read the shredded material. I see this as the number one reason to use a Reverse Printer.
