HILDERSHAM, United Kingdom - Iain Sinclair Design (, the company that invented the multi-million selling, ultrathin flashlight (featured in MOMA's permanent collection) and first energy-saving white LED flashlight (requiring no battery cells to buy or change) is launching a new range of world-first, superior quality pocket size inventions in 2011.

Eon Extreme
Eon Extreme,
is the world's first ultrathin, pocket "floodlight" requiring no batteries to buy or change and builds on the ultrathin design of the company's best-selling EON flashlight/torch of 1997. The new pocket floodlight easily slips into a wallet or pocket but has the highest power to weight ratio of any flashlight worldwide. When powered up the Eon Extreme provides floodlight illumination, making traditional flashlights obsolete.

no.1 Gadget site: Gizmodo:
'This thing is bright!'.

CardSharp offers the most innovative penknife design ever as a superlight, ultrathin, supersharp utility knife. Just three ingenious folding actions change the card into an elegant high tech, pocket utility knife. CardSharp has a built-in protective sheath to prevent injury or blunting and a Catra certified (, stainless steel surgical blade to ensure longer lasting rust free sharpness. The high tech, folding utility knife is also waterproof as it has no hinged parts to rust up like ordinary folding pocket knives.

DVice: "Swiss Army knife has nothing
on this credit card blade."

Poco PRO
Poco Pro, the World's first credit card sized, full 1080p High Definition video camera with 14 Mega Pixel digital still capability for superior quality pictures and movies on the move. The superlight, compact design is constructed using a robust, scratch resistant magnesium body and weighs just 65 grams while offering the highest quality of picture or movies available in an ultrathin camera.

Geeky Gadgets: "Remarkably thin."

Poco 3D
Poco 3D will be a 3D version of the Poco PRO, with both Poco cameras also providing superior quality sound and music play and recording.

CardSharp will be the first product available to buy, closely followed by Eon Extreme and the Poco cameras. The company is taking pre-orders direct at its website now and will ship to any country worldwide.

Grant Sinclair, Managing Director, Iain Sinclair Design, said: "We are extremely proud to say the new collection of pocket inventions includes genuine high tech, world-firsts that will disrupt established markets from pocket flashlights to digital cameras.

"The new Iain Sinclair Design pocket-size products are the result of lots of hard work and absolute belief in superior quality design to create better products.

"Iain Sinclair Design uses only the highest standard of components in the new collection including parts at the very cutting edge of technical design and manufacturing. We work direct with the biggest and best component manufacturers worldwide so we are able to offer an extremely high standard of product but at affordable prices.

"We've sold millions of our previous generation of ultrathin flashlights and are now snowed under with pre-orders for the new ultrathin range so we believe the new collection will be an even bigger global success."
