Crave: Crave: A human hamster wheel for living!

3:45 /

It's all the latest from the Crave blog with Brian Tong and guest hostess Jessica Dolcourt. This week they talk about Cyborg keyboards, USB lanyards for your cell phone, a light signaling system for dating, and a human hamster wheel.

>> Cyborg keyboard, reactive light clothing and a human hamster wheel, plus our special guest Miss Jessica Dolcourt. >> Hey guys. >> All that and more on Crave. ^M00:00:09 [ Music ] ^M00:00:11 >> Hey guys, welcome to Crave. The show where all things cool have been happening in tech. We talk about them right here and you can check out our blog, at crave.cnet.com 'cause that's where you'll find all things we've talk about today. So Jessica, thanks for coming back. >> It's great to be here again. >> All right now, one of the items that I checked out on a Crave blog was this Cyborg gaming keyboard and it has this three LEDs behind it that are different colors. You can blend them and have the keyboard look -- have a different backlight. >> It's Technicolor. >> Yes, it has like metal caps for the keys, if you're like too rough on it, but I think it just kind of looks like Darth Vader's, like chess box. >> But does it talk to you in that tiny voice? ^M00:00:46 [ Heavy breathing ] ^M00:00:47 >> The future is sick. >> No, it doesn't, petty much, just a really nerdy device. >> Oh, okay. Well, perfect for you. >> Thank you. >> The second to go, got this from a company called Brando. It's called the Ultra-Smart Cable. It is a cell phone strap that doubles as a USB charging cable. Now there are a bunch of these in the market. John Chan from CNET Asia, found this one. What makes it extra cool is that it's also got a microSD slot, so you can store data and also sync between your phone and the computer. >> That is extra cool. >> And it's only 14 bucks. >> And I totally wouldn't use it. I got something cooler. >> All right. >> On our Crave blog there's this clothing with LED light. Basically it's for bicyclists at the moment and it has an accelerometer in the clothing that talks to these LEDs and so if you're going really fast, it's green. As you're slowing down these three lights, I call them the cuff turn yellow and when you're stopping, it turns red. >> I think that's the best for the Club. >> Yeah, well -- okay, let's say we take this technology into dating. >> Yeah. >> I think it will help guys out if girls wear this clothing, but it wasn't like accelerometer based, so it would be like, green, like yeah baby talk to me. Yellow, like slow your roll, I don't know what color it is right now for you and me. >> Yeah. >> And like red, like stop. That -- now if you apply that tech to there, it's kind of cool. >> That would definitely, you know help you out. >> Now, we always have a trivia for you guys, and this week, Jessica has the question. >> What was the final sound effects you heard in last week's Do Not Crave? >> Good one. Now, what's really cool about it is this time, if you're the tenth person to email us at drivingmecravy at cnet.com, check what we've got for you. We have the Sansa Fuze MP3 player. We're not messing around. We're going big this time. So, email us and you might be a winner. And now it's time for segment that you guys all love. You know what's coming, Do Not Crave. ^M00:02:31 [ Music ] ^M00:02:32 >> Converging technologies like cell phones and watches are already happening. But what about converging different aspects of your life. Well, that's what TurnOn is trying to accomplish. This hamster wheel contraption claims to be economical with space and the idea is to roll the wheel into the position you need for a particular room or setting. So, a kitchen: Check. Bedroom: you got it. Now part of the wheel is a wet cell that's proposed to house the bathroom, toilet and shower. Are you for real? Like do you really wanna use the bathroom and then rotate it and heating up mom's left over meatloaf? No, you don't. This idea is definitely thinking outside the box, but c'mon now, we just gotta say, Do Not Crave. Alright, what you think about that? >> That's absolutely disgusting. >> So, you do the cho and then you eat, is that cool if you would. >> You know, I think I wouldn't buy that. >> Yeah. >> That's like nightmare Ikea. >> Yeah, it's gross. As long as you don't have to assemble it I think it's alright. All right, thanks for coming on to the show. >> Awesome and thanks for having me again. >> I'll see you again next time, right. >> All right, cool, but only if I get one of those cool accelerometer shirt. >> Okay, yeah, that will help me. Now you guys, just check out everything on our show at crave.cnet.com and we will see you guys next week. ^M00:03:42 [ Music ]
