mini cleaning kit v3.1
Oct. 2007 - Oct. 2009

Cleaning kit on the desk and anywhere you can reach with your hand
'Tong' is a small cleaning kit. It simplifies the whole process of cleaning; sweeping the dirt into the dustpan and emptying the dustpan into a garbage pail, and sweeping again.
With Tong, cleaning is simple and easy because the dustpan becomes the garbage pail, and the broom is easy to store because it is combined if the cover is lifted slightly. You don't have to hide the broom and dustpan at the corner and take the trouble to find them whenever necessary. Just put Tong on your desk.
Streaming Music Player + Hotspot zone generator

Are you still looking for 'Wi-Fi 'hotspot zone'?
iPIE allows you to use wireless internet anyplace where your mobile phone does not lose signal. It uses the 3G wireless network data communication channel.
If you looked for the place where you can have access to wireless internet with your laptop or MID(mobile internet device), such as cafe, try your own hotspot zone with the handheld iPIE now.
If you are authorized through SIM card, you can have access to the subscribed communication network and use the wireless internet freely and safely. Also, it can be used as streaming internet radio. Snuggling fit into your hand, it can be put in your pocket or handbag.
A compass that draws circles with scientific exactitude.
When we use a compass which is a tool used to draw circles, we first measure the radius of the circle we want to draw using a ruler before drawing the circle at the location we want. If we use a Circledge, we do not need a separate ruler in this procedure. It is because the distance and angle of two legs of the compass will be shown on the display window when they are widened. It is achieved by the sensor reading the value through movement of the gear attached to the location where two legs of the compass meet with each other and display it on the screen. The electricity to power the display is supplied by the solar cells located at the back.
A Circledge not only draws circles of exact sizes easily but also can be used to measure distance between two points or angle between two sides as well.
energy saving bulb

Do we really need to light up the entire room?
The issue of energy conservation plays a big role in the reason why the incandescent bulb evolved to florescent light bulb and to LED bulb. For the same reason, the decision to stop the production of incandescent bulb within five years has been reached at G8 Summit in 2008. The easiest way to fight against the global warming is through energy conservation, and I believe we need to think hard about finding ways to improve the things in our lives that we took for granted.
While agonizing about light design for energy conservation, I came upon the question of “is there a need to brightly lid the entire room?” But placing lights on various corners of the room and turning them on and off is very inconvenient. The incandescent bulb, which is the representative lighting device, has recently been evolved into the bulb using LED technology that drastically reduced electricity consumption but this only improved upon a lighting method. LED bulb is a method of creating necessary light by gathering multiple units rather than using one light source. Accordingly, it’s been designed to allow users to control the setting of the lighting area and direction according to their different needs thus reducing any unnecessary energy wastes allowing for effective lighting.
Thinking about the fact that light has a direction and reflects endlessly will allow you to image the environment in which this product is used. In a typical small room with desk, bed and table, generally a bright light is needed when sitting in front of the desk and the need for lighting varies for rest of the areas on difference circumstances. It can be set to lid only the desk area, which is a part of the entire area of the room, and the remaining areas can still receive indirect light the lighting for them is turned off maintaining the brightness in the surroundings of the desk. It’s a way to more effectively use LED bulb, which is ten times more effective compared to the incandescent bulb.
