  • "I wouldn't mind that for my open layout office desk. I'm sure there are a lot of designs for COVID partition holders that can be repurposed for this, then just cut cardboard or foam core by hand or laser cutter."

  • "It's hard enough to keep the nose pads of my regular glasses clean. I hope either the projector or lens is easy enough to remove so one can clean between them."

  • "Has no one there been doing their homework? As has probably been covered elsewhere, Tesla named one of their cars the Model 3 because they couldn't use Model E since Ford already has a claim to it. So Elon has to settle with S, 3, X, and Y models. I doubt Foxconn can persuade Ford to relinquish that name."

  • "I'm not as interested in the printer as I am with the paper. I'm sure there are others who also want 100% adhesive coverage post-it notes. (Insert origin of Scotch tape name here).But of course, that tape is already available. The "Post-it Full Adhesive Roll" might be out of stock at the two places I checked, but there's "Post-it Labeling Tape 695" is. Note that for some reason, it's different from 3M 395 tape."

  • "It seems very risky to assume torso areas are going to be uniform enough to slow people properly, especially on a ship that has a quite international passenger makeup. But maybe friction vs. cross section/weight still results in the same descent speed.I didn't read the graphic to mean that the arms shouldn't be overhead, but that the legs shouldn't be used to slow one down. Maybe a bit better graphic design could be utilized there.I also wonder about how well either the deployment or chute works at various list or pitch angles."

  • "I'd be interested in knowing why he didn't design it to pull along the centerline of the plug so the pins aren't torqued as the loop is pulled. Possibly because there are so many ways the cable could exit and the offset pull is Good Enough."
    on: A Simple Object That Makes Plugs Easier to Remove from Sockets
  • "There's been a company called Charge It Spot (dot com) that has been around since 2011 doing that in the US, Canada, Mexico, and Australia. I think they make the units I've seen in Nordstrom."

  • "I'd probably approach it from a business perspective: What kind of liability insurance do you think you'd need to be able to sell such a product? How much would it add to the price? Would you be able to attract investors to share your risk? Not counting crowdfunding."
    on: Should Design Make it Easier for Cyclists to Use Smartphones for Non-Navigational Purposes?
  • "The pessimist in me says that's just a way of letting the user know how much life is left in their air filter. So now the drivers have range anxiety, refueling anxiety, and filter anxiety."
    on: Toyota's New Hydrogen-Powered, "Minus Emissions" Mirai Cleans the Surrounding Air as You Drive
  • "I presume someone already sells a bottle with a lens-shaped bulge (or dip) in the middle. That way people can take photos of it with the background through it in focus and everything outside the bottle blurred. And more could be sold so people can have different focal lengths, either by changing the shape of the lens, or putting liquids in with different indices of refraction.Just a little effort needs to be made to determine the optimal shape when filled with water so the background and bottle are both in focus when held at arm's length or when taking up half the frame of a cellphone camera."
    on: Memobottles: Flat, Rectangular, Designey Water Bottles
  • "Rain, what is it about this makes you consider it an e-bike? Is it that the design cues (pretty bare frame, no plastic body panels, relatively light weight, etc) make it look like an e-bike? Even the manufacturer's website refers to it as a motorcycle."
