Some might argue that with the increased prevalence of cloud storing services, thumb drives may soon go the way of the dodo bird, much like the floppy disk. Having said that, it might be impossible for beverage enthusiasts with an appetite for technology to not lust for this thumb drive. The USB Bottle Opener Flash Drive is like any other flash drive, except it has the added feature of being able to open your favorite bottle of beer. Neat? Absolutely.
Buy the USB Bottle Opener from the Brando Workshop for starting at $19 (2GB).
This neat concept piece from Mike Mak Design caught my eye while I was perusing his impressive portfolio. At first I thought the fin was ice whose sole purpose was to chill the juice. Upon closer examination of the photos I think that the fin, instead, is functionally there to act as a juicer, which is pretty neat. But how cool would it be if the fin was indeed ice and could also serve as a orange presser. I’d buy that mold + presser combination!
London based designer Daizi Zheng created this Nokia concept eco-friendly phone that does not run on batteries, but instead uses Coca-Cola. The device uses the sugar found in the coke to power the fuel cells found on the device. Of course, you could use any sugar based power product to power the fuel cells but saying that the phone runs on Coke instantly makes the story sexy. Not sure if you’ll be able to find this at your local AT&T , Verizon or T-Mobile store anytime soon, but it is fun to think about the power of science.
“This is a client project aimed at designing an eco-friendly phone for Nokia. As a result of my research, I discovered that conventional phone batteries are: expensive, harmful to the environment and difficult to dispose of. In addition, the conventional battery manufacturing process consumes many valuable resources. The concept is based on the idea to create a pollution free environment by using bio-batteries as an alternative to conventional batteries. A bio-battery is an ecologically friendly, energy supply system which uses enzymes as a catalyst to generate electricity from carbohydrates (currently sugar). In order to use the bio-battery as a power source for the phone all that is required is a small supply of a sugary drink. Once the battery dies only oxygen and water remains. Bio-batteries are fully biodegradable and have, on a single charge, a potential life-span three to four times longer than conventional lithium batteries. Meanwhile, bio-batteries are a whole new way of looking at batteries and afternoon tea.”

OK so this product is definitely a novelty, but, you have to admit that it’s ingenious! The act of popping open a cold one, for one reason or another, is just as gratifying as drinking the actual product. It’s the sound, the act, the knowing that you’ll soon be sipping on a refreshing beverage that makes that first pop so good. Now you can relieve that moment over and over and over again. Pavlov would be be proud. If anything else, it makes for a great way to irritate the guy in the cubicle next to you at work.
“Of course, there isn’t any actually beer in there, but the feeling of popping it open will hold you over on Friday during work as you’re waiting for the weekend. When you do, you’ll get one of many sounds inside, from the classic opening crack, pouring, bubbles, or drinking sounds.”
