Roto Phone Mount

 ROTO / New, intriguing, centre of steering wheel, vertical always, Universal, Solution to handling phone in car! Direct line of sight.

Thanks to Twitter user @DavidCattermole, for pointing out this allegedly “Intriguing” project.

The Roto phone holder was an idea that i have been working on for just over a year. its a platform you can put any small to medium sized appliance of information for the vehicle. I pulled apart and incorporated other phone holders and made it to stay vertical to form the Roto, as the residual patent only last's a year i need to do something with it, so i have created a business named IDEINS which means "To See"
“Appliance of information”? You mean a smart phone, right?
The “intriging” idea here is that because it’s mounted on the one part of your car that is constantly rotating, they’ve installed a swivel joint to keep it more-or-less vertical.

But why? Why would you want your phone vertical while you’re driving? Navigation apps work better horizontal. “Auto Mode” interfaces are almost universally horizontal. Even the mp3 player works fine horizontal. I have to assume this is for texting while driving.

Vertical Video Or maybe not. Maybe the designer just has a fetish for vertical phones. He actually filmed the project video in vertical format!
(Don’t do this. Even when you’re viewing them on a phone vertical videos are claustrophobic, like peaking through a keyhole, and on Kickstarter’s website they’re downright ugly and extremely unprofessional.)

Risks and challenges  The only thing i have come upon is the situation of the air-bag. i believe i have addressed this, with a clause on the packaging that states "Not suitable for airbags".

Basically, the only risk in this project is that it’ll drive your phone into your face at hundreds miles per hour, shattering your skull, and forcing your nose up into your brain.

Don’t worry, though. He’s got it covered. He’s going to put a warning label on the package.

The Greatest!

greatest_wallpaper_01

Scott Reimann has created “hands down the greatest marijuana live wallpaper on the Android market“. Truely, a remarkable achievement. Many have tried, but only Scott Reimann has achieved true artistic immortality by creating “the greatest” marijuana live wallpaper ever made.

Let’s see some screenshots!

greatest_wallpaper_02

I think it’s an animation of a pipe lighting itself, and then smoking? It’s a little hard to make out, but that’s probably because of the greatness! A lot of great artists are difficult to get a quick read on. You ever see a Picasso?

Let’s see what kind of reviews this app gets!
greatest_wallpaper_03

You can tell this is the “Greatest” wallpaper because it’s so popular among people who were paid to review it.

greatest_wallpaper_04

Oh, come on, Chris! The man is paying you to leave a good review and the best you can manage is three stars?

I guess some people just don’t recognize greatness.

Fab Flab App Under Wraps

 I want to create a health and fitness app that's going to revolutionise the way we think about food and exercise.

A dieting app? As if there weren’t any of those!

Ok so there's plenty of apps out there that can count calories, give you diet suggestions and workout programs. My app will incorporate all these functions with 1 key difference that targets the way we choose food. There isn't an app out there on the market that contains my key concept so I can't give away much more than that. All I can say is anyone that's trying to loose weight, trying to sculpt a better body or simply trying to maintain their current physique, this app is for you!

He wants $50,000aud (about $38k American) and he won’t even tell us what the app does!

He’s asking for money and telling us he can’t tell us what it’s for!

Whatever you do for a living, next time you talk to a customer, try this strategy! See if it works!

(If they don’t look like they’re going for it. Show them some photographs of a pale and hairless male torso.)

The “No Touch” pen

The No Touch Pen ®, The Original Germ Defense Pen® -- Kicktraq Mini

The “No Touch” pen. With this amazing new invention, you don’t have to push the buttons on an ATM with your fingers, exposing yourself to germs!

Ok, we’ve seen this sort of thing here before, but it’s not a horrible idea.

They’ve got a photograph, but I won’t bore you with it. It’s a silver tube with a black rubber thing on the end.

Basically, what they’ve done here is take an ordinary phone/tablet stylus, the kind Amazon will sell you for pocket change, and written their name on it.

Not really an “invention” if you ask me, but at least it’ll be cheap, right? Right?

Ha ha! Nope.

Strap a phone to your Face.

This is really weird. These two projects launched within four hours of each-other!

I guess it’s all part of the fast-moving Kickstarter zeitgeist. Now is the time to stick a phone on your face! A week ago it would have seemed absurd, and a week hence it will seem cliched and old-fashioned.

360Specs launched a mere four hours and seven minutes after vrAse, and as of this writing it’s already fallen well behind! So take from that whatever lesson you can.

Thought Phones! Or maybe not?

Let me take you backstage a moment and explain how I prepare these posts.

When I find a project that makes me giggle, I take a screenshot of it, and then I bookmark it. Later, when I prepare the post for this blog, I work from that screenshot, but I also check out the page again to see if I missed anything.

So imagine my surprise that this crazy project had completely changed!

Two Weeks Ago :

TARC - The first thought phone

Now :

Tarc - The first free energy thought magnifier

Apparently, project creator Paris Tosen was forced to change the name and purpose of his product when his beta testers complained that they couldn’t place thought-calls on their thought-phones.

That is a real thing that I am not making up.
Therefore, I am going to revise the Tarc into a device that magnifies, accentuates, and modulates thought energy, since this remains a consistent theme in the feedback from the testers.
I think he means “My device does absolutely nothing at all, so I need to revise its description to something that can’t be proved one way or the other.

This is not me telling them what to do.
But that’s your job! You’re the inventor!

Come on, we all know that a thought-phone or even a thought amplifier is complete nonsense!
tarc_04
Oh! I guess he put me in my place!

Let’s carry on, then.

tarc_06_new
Neat!
Until two weeks ago it could send and receive messages of love from friends and family, but I guess the receiver circuits still need some work.
(It could also “Send and receive emergency messages to any person in the world“. Which strikes me as the sort of thing his lawyer probably told him to take off the list.)

Two Weeks Ago :

The TARC is designed with Stelan technology (ie interdimensional science), advanced ideas that have been adapted to suit human needs.

Now :

The TARC is designed with a crystalline architecture, advanced ideas that have been adapted to suit human needs. Human DNA is also crystalline based.

Wait, “Stelan Technology”? Yes. Two weeks ago he was all about the “Stelan Technology”, now he doesn’t mention it once!

What is he trying to cover up?

Turns out that “Stelans” are aliens living on Earth! Paris Tosen apparently has a degree in “modern Human-Stelan relations”, and runs the Office of Stelan Affairs.

I can’t imagine why Paris Tosen would try to cover up his expertise in this exciting field!

In fact, he’s an expert in many fields! He’s written a number of books.

Truly a remarkable person.

See for yourself
