New Year!

I want to wish all of you a very Happy new year and hope it is better than your last!

A Peek At Our Future..


Wonder who she is?

From here

SEOUL, Korea (AVING) -- 'EveR-2 Muse', designed by KITEC (Korea Institute of Industrial Technology), is the world's first entertainer-robot. She had been first introduced last October and since then she even had ranked fourth with her first song on a certain website popularity poll.

Her skin is made of silicon material; 60 joints in her face, neck, and lower body enable her to demonstrate various facial expressions and some dance moves. She is 161cm tall and weighs 60kg, average figures of Korean women in their twenties.




Speaking dish says “stop eating”

I guess it can help some with their "new year resolutions" ;-) Link



Connected to a palm-size computer, this dish delivers a message 'stop eating' when quantity of food served exceeds a certain amount. If you insist on placing more on the dish, this impudent(?) dish even tells you “where is your willpower”.

Hot dinner table with sexy legs

A group of HONGIK UNIVERSITY students presented 'Hot Dinner' table with sexy legs at Korea Int'l Furniture & interior Fair 2006. It was reported last August.

Guys you have to keep your hands of those legs!

You always find the most interesting things! I love the talking plate. Is there a talking wine glass too? "Hey you, that's enough!"

Maggie said...

Great funny pics. I like the plate too. It reminds me of those refrigerator locks with voices I saw once - or was that made up in a movie? Anyways it was hilariously snarky - "You're fat enough, get out of there!" Stuff like that.

Happy New One Sanjay!

Nabeel said...

warmest wishes to you too and yes i have seen the robot .. she is popular among little kids though .. they gather all around her :) However, the robot population is still far from mingling with us as seen in movies.

The robot looks so real,the technology is developing at such a amazing speed,imagine having a robot which looks just like us!I can surely think of a lot of use for such twin robot!!:)
That talking plate is something I really need!
Have a wonderful new year Sanjay!

Mellowdrama said...

hehe you know the dude who made the plate has also made a talking belt. See, if you are smart, you will pile on light fried stuff like crisps/fries etc..the belt on the other hand sees how much the tummy expands and beeps out a warning if you overeat! Hehe..oooo have you heard of the Sudoku toilet roll, what fun. Here's to the New Year..have fun!

Ash said...

Happy New Year to you Sanjay!

Hi, Added a new value add to my blog this weekend - a news widget from www.widgetmate.com. I always wanted to show latest news for my keywords in my sidebar. It was very easy with this widget. Just a small copy paste and it was done. Great indeed.
