Popping the question the 21st century way
Buy ring, record message, await answer
Gone are the days of candle-lit dinners, Eiffel Tower proposals, and sinking to one's knee. American manufacturer Euri has created the ultimate timesaver for loved-up businessmen. Just pop an engagement ring into the Euricase, record a video, and let a built-in LCD screen do the hard work without you.
Euricase: Chuck in a ring and record a video. Job done
The Euricase looks like a normal ring box. Open the lid, however, and there's a 2in LCD display that displays pre-recorded videos or pictures when opened. It also has a built-in speaker for audio.
Content is uploaded via a USB port, which the manufacturer claims can hold over 500 pictures or 60 minutes of video. [Surely even Hugh Grant doesn't need an hour to propose - Ed] The Euricase also has a built in clock, calendar, alarm, and battery life indicator.
The case runs on a rechargeable battery and is available in a selection of finishes, including metal and acrylic.
It's available here now for $200 (£100/€130). But if you're looking to save a few bucks on the wedding, there's also a $100 (£50/€80) version that only sports a microphone for pre-recorded messages and a display that scrolls "I love you" across it. But you don't want her to think you're cheap... ®
"inside, where a ring should be, is some cash"
There's only one sort of lady you give cash to as a prelude to "romance"...
You romantic git. If I weren't male, straight and married I'd consider taking you up... ;)
And there you go, people. Proof positive that it IS possible to polish a turd...
That's just soooo ridiculous.
Where's the humanity and emotion here ?
In a box ?
Someone, shoot the dumbass that tries to make money with such foolish products :/
There might be a niche market for a similar product with rotten eggs and anonymous hate messages, for them who released Microsoft (r) Windows (tm) Vista (c) though.
The art of romance
... is dead to the fool that invented this.
This is like the magic wipes. Get off your lazy ass and go get the detergent from the cupboard and put it on a regular cloth ... you arse.
As for this idea, how the hell are they supposed to find this ? just leave it on the desk. Any decerning woman would have checked anywhere any man would logically have put something like a ring case. They look for these sorts of things. If its got a pre-recorded message; it really takes the fun out of proposing. I mean come on, you'd want to be there for your own wedding right ? you're not going to be there for your funeral when she kills you ...
now if only they invented gifts to help you break up with people.
how about a billboard space just for dumping so that you can have photos and messages saying "I dumped you coz you're fat, I hate you" or something more creative and entertaining to others. OR the popup emo in a box. Could be fun.
Just include the Paris Hilton video and you're all set ;-D
No coat, too hot here. I'll be at the Dog and Duck though...
