Do We Have Milk?

Gear  |  Projects
Music credit: The Seedy Seeds - Verb Noun 
"You pour a bowl of cereal, or a cup of coffee. Go to the fridge. No milk. Maybe you’re already at the grocery store in the dairy aisle and wonder, “How much milk do I have left at home?” What if you could take a peek into your fridge anytime, anywhere?
To monitor the amount of the remaining milk, we attached a weight sensor to the bottom of a milk jug to send the weight values to your phone. When the milk reaches dangerously low levels, you get an alert on your phone reminding you to get milk while using your current location to map nearby grocery stores."

Animal sculptures made from reclaimed household objects

Array

Gear  |  Projects
Created by Artist Sayaka Ganz. Ganz says:
"I only select objects that have been used and discarded. My goal is for each object to transcend its origin by being integrated into an animal/ organic forms that are alive and in motion. This process of reclamation and regeneration is liberating to me as an artist.
Building these sculptures helps me understand the situations that surround me. It reminds me that even if there is a conflict right now, there is also a solution in which all the pieces can coexist peacefully. Though there are wide gaps in some areas and small holes in others, when seen from the distance there is great beauty and harmony in our community. "

blink(1), A Hackable USB LED Indicator Light

Gear  |  Projects
blink(1) is a hackable LED indicator light that plugs into any USB port. It's a USB indicator light, a fully programmable indicator of new emails, weather conditions, Twitter notifications… anything you want.
Do you want to know if a friend has signed onto Skype, but don’t want a window popping up every time anyone has logged on? Do you want to be notified when a long download has finished? Do you want to know the snow conditions at Tahoe without checking every hour? Do you want to make a “busy” light for your office that glows red when your calendar says you’re in a meeting?
You can do all four at once: you can simultaneously control as many blink(1)s as you have USB ports. Have a 36-port USB hub? You can fill it with 36 blink(1)s, each of which is showing a different piece of information.

it’s $30 for one, on a fully funded Kickstarter project.

Developed by Rahel Eckardt at the Evangelical Geriatrics Center in Germany, the Age Man Suit is specifically designed to force a younger person to experience the physical limitations of the elderly. The 22-pound suit includes ear-protectors that stifle hearing, a yellow visor that blurs eyesight and makes it hard to distinguish colours, knee and elbow pads which stiffen the joints, a Kevlar-jacket-style vest which presses uncomfortably against my chest, and padded gloves, made to simulate the body of a person 75 years or older!

The Milkmaid - Monitor Your Milk

Array

Array
Gear  |  Projects
The Milkmaid was chosen as the winner of The Quirky + GE Project. This quart size milk jug is a glass container that plugs into a smart base that stays in your fridge. Features:
• pH sensors to detect how long the milk has left until it spoils — or if it already has.
• A smart base with a weight sensor that tells how many cups are left.
• A temperature sensor that alerts you when milk has been left out of the fridge for too long.
• A free iPhone app that lets you access this data remotely so you'll know when to pick up more at the store.
It's a cool idea still in development at Quirky.com.
