Bunkie Is A Space-Efficient Pre-Fab Cabin

Building a cabin on the property you bought by the lake sounds like a wonderful plan.  Until you actually get in the process of constructing one and realize for the umpteenth time that's you're nowhere near a capable carpenter.  Yeah, might as well just go pre-fab to save yourself the hassle.  If you're looking for something simple but functional and attractive, the Bunkie should figure high in your list of choices.

A collaborative product from 608 Design and BLDG Workshop, it's a small pre-fab cabin made up of just a single room.  Dimensions look about the size of a smaller shipping container (like the one used in the Sauna Box), except with a heck of a lot more class and style.

The Bunkie features a frame done up to resemble the traditional silhouette of a house, complete with a chimney on one side.  Construction is plywood and reclaimed barn boards for the frame, with glass walls for the front and the rear.  Since it just has a single open layout, the cabin is equipped with furniture items that fold into the wall, including a dining table that hides over the fireplace, folding chairs hung next to it, and a pair of queen-size murphy beds on the opposite side.  Shelf racks cover the remaining open areas of the wall.  Granted, you'll probably want a couch and a coffee table somewhere in there, too, but you can probably make that your personal carpentry project, instead.

No word yet on exact pricing and availability for the Bunkie, but you can sign up to the mailing list to get timely information.

LG’s first flexible OLED phone due before the year is out

LG plans to launch a flexible OLED smartphone before the end of the year, the company’s VP of mobile has confirmed, though it’s unclear to what extent the work-in-progress handset will actually flex. The OLED panel in question is the handiwork of LG Display according to VP of LG mobile Yoon Bu-hyun, the WSJ  reports, with the proposed device set to launch sometime in Q4. LG Display’s work on flexible OLEDs has been underway for some time, though the company’s efforts have perhaps been overshadowed somewhat by rival Samsung’s YOUM development. Last year, according to a Korea Times report, LG Display was preparing for
Flexible displays are the Future of IT Industry! A part from 4k and smart home appliances, the CES 2013 saw a lot of attention being drawn towards bendable, flexible displays. The elasticised display idea isn’t something new as we have seen hoards of device concepts being crafted around flexible, bendable and even foldable displays. These concept devices give us a futuristic feel, be it a flexible phone to be worn around the wrist or a phone that opens up to turn into a tablet or PSP-like device. But how far is this future? Nokia has been toying with the idea ever since we remember. The technology sounds very fascinating and the possibilities and the extent to which bendable displays could be used are vast and leave us spellbound. However, these have always been concepts and we haven’t seen any device materialise in the real world. There have been several technologies that were conceived in these years and all have been put to their practical use. But the bendable d

Xarius: Charge Your Mobile From Air

Xarius is a portable energy generator that allows to charge electrical appliances by the use of windpower in areas without electricity. Its lightweight and compact design makes the wind turbine to a perfect companion on backpacking trips with little luggage. It is composed of a foldable three-wing-system and an internal energy generator. The integrated rope makes it easy to adapt to any environment.Hooks are attached to both of its ends to tighten the rope and open the wings at the same time using the resulting tension. For convenient charging the battery is permanently installed, so that the electrical device can be charged inside the tent. The LED on the hook shows the current charge of battery. The pulsating orange indicates that the wind turbine has to recharge. Even at low wind speeds the blades begin to rotate autonomously.
