Rate This Concept Now!

Overview: You want to play Candy Crush Saga. Too bad, you have a 200 page thesis to write. Your brain’s telling you to crush candies, and that you’re much more efficient when you work at the last minute.What should you do? The responsible thing, of course. Pop your phone into the kSafe. The safe locks whatever you put into it until you complete your self-set goal, or until you enter your password into the kSafe app. The container is food-safe and virtually unbreakable, making it perfect to store anything that is an obsession or a distraction. Be it your phone, credit cards, Xbox controller, unnecessary carbs, the kSafe will do a remarkable job keeping your kryptonite away from you.

Explaining to your girlfriend that you couldn’t answer her calls because your phone was locked in a smart-vault is something that you’d totally have to do yourself, though.

Solar Power Charger for Airplanes


Rate This Concept Now!

Overview: On a flight from London to Chicago, I was very happy to note that my Business Class seat had a USB charging station. As soon as I hooked up my dying phone for some juice, the airhostess came to admonish me, saying that we were not ‘allowed’ to charge phones, the hook up was available only for multimedia purposes. Blah! Concepts like the Solar Eclipse are innovations that the airline industry could use. Give us charging ports people! We have Wi-Fi and Internet connections made available … so take the next step!
