WILL’S WON­DERS

Maxim - - WILL.I.AM -

IN THE FREN­ZIED RACE TO CRE­ATE AND MAR­KET THE WORLD’S NEXT GREAT GAD­GET, WILL.I.AM HAS SEV­ERAL HORSES ON THE FAST TRACK.

EKOCYCLE 3D PRIN­TER

Will col­lab­o­rated with Dean Ka­men and Coca-Cola to cre­ate the Ekocycle Cube 3D prin­ter. The desk­top con­sumer model not only al­lows users to cre­ate high-res­o­lu­tion ob­jects but also prints with par­tially re­cy­cled ma­te­ri­als. Ev­ery car­tridge the prin­ter uses is the equiv­a­lent of three re­cy­cled soda bot­tles. $1,199; cubify.com

I.AM­PULS SMART­BAND

Un­like many sim­i­lar smart­watches, the Puls op­er­ates on its own built-in 3G con­nec­tion with­out the help of a smart­phone. The open-source touch­screen smart­watch, in ad­di­tion to let­ting you take calls and surf the Web, re­ceives e-mails, news, and other no­ti­fi­ca­tions, and fea­tures its own Siri-like dig­i­tal as­sis­tant. From $399 plus ser­vice con­tract; iamplus.com

THE REST…

Will is con­stantly work­ing on the next big thing. At his Los An­ge­les shop, he has pro­to­types of—and hopes to soon re­lease— a tri­an­gu­lar back­pack that dou­bles as a wear­able boom box, as well as a bat­tery-pow­ered jacket that charges the Puls for four days when it touches the sleeve’s cuff. They’re ex­pected to be re­leased in the near fu­ture.
