Guess the FUNCTION of the THING

She’s not giving anything away. Could be a “steampunk” television from the 1800s. Or for making massive waffles at large-scale outdoor catering events. Comes with a remote control so must be quite interesting.

Guess the Function of the THING

This is a planetary evacuation pod. The most attractive member of each nation will be placed into a state of suspended animation, packaged up and blasted off to the nearest possibly habitable planet in the event of a catastrophic collapse in Earth’s environment. Or it could be Darth Vader’s ice cube dispenser. He won’t be [...]

The ‘Press… Wow!’

We’re putting this forward for consideration as a new INTERNET THING. It’s the ‘Press… Wow!’. Press… Wow! Here it is in a joined-up image file for easy distribution. This one’s going to go viral.

Only managed to find a small photo of this, but that actually makes the cheeky little chap seem all the more endearing. The “G” is an earring. Lovely blue eyes. Can we keep him?

Foreground/background composition error

The wrong woman’s been put in the front. Has anyone got contact details (preferably an email address) for LG? That’s a telephone they’re holding. A wireless one.

Team LG arrives at CES 2011

The ladies have arrived. They will be of assistance if you require a brochure or would like to make an appointment with a regional manager, but not of much use if you have a query about file format playback via USB or DLNA certified devices.

Guess the Function of the THING

LG’s just sent this out, at an amazing resolution of 5777×3908: Suspect it’s a hygienic chopping board, with a new innovation in onion fume-masking technology.

Gadgets with FACES #212: LG’s fridge freezer

It could be said that this LG THINQ home appliance illustration has a semblance of a face itself, especially if you consider the purple tags above the upper “eyes” to be “eyebrows”… …and the chimney could be a stray parting with the roof being one of those pointed haircuts that men in London have.
