Show Drivers What you REALLY Think with Drivemocion

February 23rd, 2010

There are many times on the road, in which you want to tell the other drivers what you REALLY think of them. Some just roll the window and spit it out, but most of us just simmer in anger and do nothing when other drivers cut us off. For all of us geeks, here’s a great solution: Drivemocion.

The Drivemocion affixes to your rear window and is operated by a remote control by the driver’s seat. Want to apologize for cutting someone off accidentally? Press a button and the sign says: SORRY. Want to get a tailgating fool off your backside? Press a button and the sign says: BACK OFF. Want to tell the person behind you that you find them attractive and may possibly rear end the person in front of you because you keep staring at your rear-view mirror? Press a button and get a smiley face with hearts for eyes.

With the Drivemocion’s 16 messages and variety of facial expressions, you can tell the world behind you exactly how you feel. Now, keep your eyes on the road!

Engadget Turns off Comments

February 3rd, 2010

A bold move by a big site – Engadget has disabled comments on the site. The reason?

…over the past few days the tone in comments has really gotten out of hand. What is normally a charged — but fun — environment for our users and editors has become mean, ugly, pointless, and frankly threatening in some situations… and that’s just not acceptable. Some of you out there in the world of anonymous grandstanding have gotten the impression that you run the place, but that’s simply not the case.

Engadget claims that only a small percentage of its readers actually comment, so site traffic isn’t supposed to get a hit. Still, shutting up the readers isn’t a common theme amongst techy blogs, so it will be interesting to see when and if Engadget will turn the comments back on.

Geek Toys: BluAlert Bluetooth Bracelet

February 2nd, 2010

BluAlert Bluetooth Bracelet

You need to know if someone wants to talk to you, and you need to have the ability all the time. We know. We understand.

You know how it is – your cellphone is sitting at the bottom of your bag, or perhaps lost in the folds of your jacket pocket. With the noise of the environment around you, you’ll never hear it ringing. Maybe it’s your girlfriend saying she wrecked your car, your mom informing you of an unexpected inheritance, your roommate telling you that zombie Ed McMahon’s waiting for you at your apartment with a giant novelty check, or Jessica Alba asking you out on a date (hey, it could happen). The bottom line is, when your phone rings, you had better know it, ’cause you never know who’s calling.

The BluAlert bracelet uses Bluetooth technology to buzz discretely on your wrist when your phone rings. Even in the loudest room, or the most boisterous dance-floor, you won’t miss it when BlueAlert goes off.

Even better, BluAlert acts like a security device! Once paired with your phone, if it should suddenly find itself more than 5 meters away, BlueAlert buzzes. Not only will you never miss a call, you’ll never lose your phone.
