Japanese company Japan Trust Technologies has produced an adorable mini camera that looks just like a regular LEGO brick—it is even stackable. Weighing around 20 grams, this tiny toy camera captures 1280 x 1024 pixels pictures and 720 x 480 pixels videos in both monochrome and color.

Connecting conveniently to your computer via USB, it is also designed to be dropped—probably because children are expected to be its chief users—and could be used as an external hard-disk. This perfect spy camera is available for US$73 on the Japan Trend Shop. (via DesignTaxi)


At the Arlanda airport in Stockholm, a decommissioned Boeing 747 has been transformed into a luxury hotel. Called ‘Jumbo Stay’, this ‘deluxe’ hotel has 27 rooms and can accommodate at least 76 guests. The plane’s interior had to be dismantled and redecorated—while the cockpit was transformed into a Double Bedroom for guests to sleep in.

There is also a bar and café where guests can chill and relax alternatively, they can even ‘hang out’ on the wing of the plane. According to its owner, Oscar Diös, there are spaces in plane which has not been used up and he has plans to convert the plane’s jet turbines into double rooms for guests. (via DesignTaxi)


Rumor has it that a new product is brewing in Apple’s pipeline—and it is not an even longer iPhone or an Apple TV. Sources have have told Tech163 in China that Apple is working with Intel to develop a Bluetooth-enabled, iOS watch with a 1.5 inch screen—or in this case, face. Considering that the iPhone is facing stiff competition from smart phones of other brands, this may be Apple’s way of diversifying its product line. (via DesignTaxi)
