Sensory Impact down

As is customary by now, Sensory Impact is down yet again this week due to lack of bandwidth, and the hosting service just doesn’t have the system in place to respond to it.

UPDATE: This is very infuriating. I’ve been sending a ton of emails every day to our hosting service, and haven’t heard a word from them. Looks like the site might be down for a whole week.

UPDATE: The site is back up, but only because its a new month. :(

HP’s Flexible Plastic LCD

Gizmodo writes about HP’s flexible plastic LCD panel that will one day surely be on our wrists:

Although it’s far from being put into a commercial product, HP Labs showed off a flexible plastic LCD panel Monday in London that they hope will be used in signs and other static display devices. It’s not fast enough for video yet—it takes about half-a-second to switch to a new image—but it does have the advantage of being bistable, which is to say that it retains its image even when not receiving power. The sample shown is just 3cm by 4cm, but HP obviously hopes to make something more of it in the future.

Forget Me Not

More future application for “wrist band devices”:

In the not-so-distant future, your wristwatch could stop you if you try to run out the door without the necessities you need for the day, like your keys, wallet or cell phone.

At work, it could prompt you for important items needed for a meeting or a business lunch. In an academic setting, it could remind students which books to take as they hurry out the door for class.

Think of it as a technological string around the finger – one that’s smart enough to take the initiative to save you from the inconvenience and embarrassment of forgotten essentials.

Doing Time

Name: Doing Time
Designer: Mixko
Status: Concept

This isn’t a Gucci model, but a Fashion accessory concept by Mixko that plays with the idea of “Doing Time”.

I think it’s a great way of reminding your significant other that they’re off the market. ;)

Time Tags

Name: Tempo Time Tags
Shop: Unica
Cost: $14 (sold as a set of 2)
Delivery Time: 1-4 Weeks

This could be a great way to get attention – The ad copy reads:

stopwatch? depth gauge? pedometer? …the tempo does none of that. it’s simply a wearable glimpse of time. it tags your sleeve, collar or bag, and is like an extension of the time note on your computer. it’s appropriately un-fancy in its spirit of high-end office supply, and adds a dart of useful technology to power suits and t-shirts alike. made of stainless steel.

Let people read time off your shirt. Just make sure you don’t tag it somewhere inappropriate.
