Grass Charging Station

grassy chargingCorporate slaves. That’s how people are called if they are working in tall skyscrapers but are confined in little cubicles that has just enough room for stretching and typing. Even out in the urban jungle, I have read that looking into something green can relax your eyes. But wait, before you change that Ferrari wallpaper of yours to some macro shot of plants, why not just get a techie item that is very green? Literally.

This grass charging station will scream grass as you put it on your desk. It is basically a power outlet concealed in a plant pot. You just have to plug in all of your gadget chargers in the outlet beneath all the grass and let your gadgets relax in the zen ambiance of this power strip. You can charge your phone, iPod, digital camera, or your humping USB dog through an adapter with this charging station. This thing is a very nifty idea for people who want to personalize their desk and give it a breathing space from all the papers and deadlines ahead. Let your friends pass by and walk back to see if he really did just see your iPod implanted in that plant pot. The white container is also perfect to complement your laptop/ desktop and is also very modern.

Get yours here. Just a note. Don’t forget not to water your plants or you might get shocked for real.

Solar Powered Ski Jacket

Yuletide season is coming. Of course, in some countries, winter is also near to come. Here at geekiegadgets we present to you the all new Microtene jacket with Solar Power!

The Microtene jacket is waterproof, and comes with its own solar cells connected internally within its neoprene collar. You will be a walking (or skiing) carrier of renewable power since what you’re wearing converts sunlight into energy. If you don’t want to be carrying the solar converter, you may detach the collar and use it as a power source. This is sheer convenience and, yes, power! No more problems with cell phones, cameras, or iPods that have run out of electrical charge while you’re on top of a snowy mountain.

Interactive Wear has also pioneered another textile technology called iThermX. This one is capable of generating heat, this time. The technology is applied in Thermotec, a new line of sensor-controlled heating snow gloves from Reusch. Fashion has, indeed, become ‘intelligent.’ Among recent innovations along this line are a man’s suit that can control hidden electronic devices through an ordinary touching of the sleeve.
