This is funky! The Lighting Handle glows green to indicate unlocked ness, and red when it is occupied. The Lighting Handle has an acrylic tip that glows red or green, it is perfect for bathrooms, boardrooms, and meeting rooms and anywhere else you could think of. The Lighting Handle is connected to a power outlet through the door, and flash red or green depending on the state of the door lock (activated by the thumbs turn). The only not so cool thing about this is the quite high price of course 🙁


Included in the package is:
– 1 pcs. handle with acrylic tip
– 1 pcs. handle of steel
– 1 pcs. thumbs turn.


The price of the The Lightning Door Handle is $440.

Sega Toys’s Mu-Bot

17, Jul 2006


Sega Toys and Avex Entertainment presented a new cute earphone accessory “Mu-Bot” designed for iPods and MP3 Players at 2006 Tokyo Toy Show. The cute Mu-Bot’s hands are actually retractable ear phones that you can get out when you listen and put them back “as hands” of the Mu-Bot when you are not listening music. So basically Mu-Bot is something like a pair of ear phones and no fancy lights or moves like the iDog for instance… although it seems pretty simple accessory this time, it still looks cool 😉


But will this turn out to be the successor of iDog and iFish and the new hot Christmas gift this year? The Mu-Bot is scheduled for a release in December this year or early in 2007 if it is delayed for some reason.

When released later this year the price should be something like 2,500 Yen or somewhere about $21.

More information is available on Sega Toys’ website (in Japanese)


The Alsa Corporation’s Eclipse is a single event heat reactive basecoat that changes from Black to White or from Blue to White. Eclipse can be sprayed through any standard paint equipment. For the most brilliant white change, Eclipse should be applied over a white base. For unlimited possibilities try putting a Candy Concentrate over the Eclipse.


For example Apple Red Candy over Black to White Eclipse will result in a black to Red change, Eclipse can also be combined with any other specialty products for truly unique effects. Just think of what you can do for example with lets say your laptop chasis or PC case – you’ll always know what are the most heated parts 😉

How To Apply Eclipse
Step 1. – Prep and Prime the surface as you would for any other paint job.
Step 2. – Apply your choice of basecolors (white will product the most dramatic effect).
Step 3. – Reduce the Eclipse 1:1 with Urethane Reducer.
Step 4. – Apply 2 to 3 coats until desired effect is achieved.
Step 5. – Air dry 15 min.
Step 6. -At this time you can either continue with Candies etc. or move on to the final clear.
Step 7. -Topcoat with our recommended clear (Sun Screen Clear) as this clear contains a very strong UV Blocker to insure long life of the Eclipse basecoat.

The price of 1 Pint Black/White Eclipse is $249, 1 Quart will cost you $399
