Sun Jar – Conserved Sunshine

Sun Jar

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could store sunlight in a preserving jar? Something like that must have wandered through Tobias Wong’s mind when he got the idea to Sun Jar.

Sun Jar is a jar which stores sun energy at day using solar cells. At night, it uses this energy to power LED lights which produce an atmospheric glow. Allegedly, the light is about as bright as a candle light. You can even place it outside, for example in the garden, because it is waterproof – just like all preservation jars.

A beautiful idea. :)

Floating MP3-Player: Music for your bath tub


JVC Japan presented an MP3-Player which floats in water. The JVC XA-AW33 (shiny name…) is waterproof and equiped with circular LED lighting for visualization effects. The manufacturer even claims that the music creates ripples in the water while playing music.

Unfortunately, the floating player can only load 256MB of music and plays music in mono. However, it’s cool! :)

Now if it was available in Europe and didn’t cost 125 Euro (~165 USD)….
