Here’s a neat large LED clock that also doubles as a bookshelf and holds your stuff. Pretty nifty space saving idea. The area not taken up by shelf space contains LED strips that act as a clock. And when you look for the time, you’ll always see your stuff. Whether it’s your prize Spiderman statue, porn award or even your mint condition Ewok village, it will be displayed in style. I think Lucas in Carbonite would look swell above this thing.
The Iocell Contents Phone looks pretty cool, but it has a big mouth, like that one friend of yours. It doesn’t keep things to itself, since it contains within it a hard disk which can be used for sending your conversations anywhere on the web.
Sure, it has an awesome look and will give you music on hold, record your conversations and play background music while you talk, but just remember, even if you don’t own one, the person you’re talking to might own one. In other words, be careful what you say from now on. Good looking phones are looking to snitch on you to the internets and hang you out to dry. From now on I’m just saying yeah, uh-huh and bye.
You’re having a bad trip dude. No, not really. Maybe. Is it real or is it memorex? This table is really freaking me out. It’s a design by John Nouanesing, who must have hung out with the Beatles during their psychedelic days. I want to quickly get some towels and clean it up. Needless to say, we want one. It looks extra strange and even creepy in red with the white background, which is why I think it should be called the redrum table. You know, as in the Shining.
The Magic Tricycle is aptly named because it’s capable of switching from three wheels to just two, becoming a motorbike for those tight spaces. On the highway it uses all three wheels, but when you have need just well, transform. I thought the Proxima concept car was cool until I saw this beauty.
The entire passenger cabin rotates as the third wheel is lifted into the air, which sprouts some kind of foil that keeps the chassis stable.Yes, it looks like a Transformer from the upcoming sequel and we’d all love to see it do battle. Alas, it’s a design concept by student Seyyed Javad Ghaffarian, created for Car Design News’ 2008 design contest. I think Michael Bay should give this guy a call don’t you?
I’d like you to meet my new chair. It’s not a smart chair. It’s the Zero-Gee Ergonomic workstation and by the looks of it, you’ll do a ton of resting and get very little work done. It’s got almost everything you need built in. Like a computer monitor, keyboard, swing out tray thing for your drinks and snacks. About the only thing missing is an onboard toilet, but I guess you can get up for that chore.
Ahhh, a blogger’s dream come true. I could have a little siesta between every article. Doesn’t it make you sleepy just looking at it? Unfortunately, the reality is that not many people are going to pay an outrageous price when you can just park yourself on the couch with your laptop.
Almost anything drinkable is or has been available in can form. Wine may be next thanks to Swedish designers Jens Andersson and Jonas Forsman who have made their recyclable wine cans slightly resemble a wine bottle.
The prototypes are available for any wine companies that want to take the plunge and enter a bold new mode of distribution. They haven’t had any luck so far. Probably because the elite don’t want others to think that they are drinking some low-class carbonated beverage. How appalling.
It’s tradition to gift a watch to employees who have served you well and are retiring. So it’s easy to see Professor X commissioning this watch and presenting it to Wolverine one day. Of course that would make the Professor how old? Well, maybe in an alternate timeline anyway.
This is actually called the X-Watch and it’s a concept watch that should have been in the movie. It has numbers all along the length, and when they’re lit up it gives you the time. It also sports Braille so that the blind can use it. Or in case cyclops doesn’t have his visor handy and has to feel for the time.
Here’s the latest awesome looking, but hard to read Tokyoflash watch. This one is called Galaxy and features a “powerful formation of multi-colored light bars, developed using digital tube technology”. It also has a “custom linked, brushed silver strap”. But here’s what you really want to know. How do you read the time?
Hitting the upper button starts an animation, then it will show you the time. The twelve yellow bars are hours going in a clock wise direction, the red bars are groups of five minutes and the four green bars are single minutes. If you use the lower button it will show you the time immediately. It will cost you about $132 USD. Love em or hate em Tokyoflash is making the world look like Sci-Fi one wrist at a time.
We probably all wish that remotes were simpler in design and function. The sPult will make your dreams come true. It was designed by Yurii Smitana Perfilov, and inspired by the iPod’s scroll wheel, which makes it a breeze to channel surf. Apple should have thought of it first.
Simple and elegant. It takes away all the complications and just gives you the bare essentials, which is all most of us need. It also has a favorites selector, volume up/down button, mute button and power button. That’s it. Nice.
T3 Magazine commissioned some future designs for their “future tech” feature. Here’s a Wii concept for 2010, which is right around the corner. Apparently blue hair is all the rage in the future. And I’m guessing that her bra has bluetooth to control some game by pure boob boucing and nipple position.
It should be noted that in 2010 brainwaves are used to control characters with some head gear, which also sports in-ear headphones. It’s nice to see the Wiimote all thin and streamlined, with just one button too. I’m looking forward to blue haired girl gamers gripping my Wiimote in 2010. Thank you Nintendo. Thank you future.
If you figure PCs should look like a bizarre abstract UFO, or maybe resemble a Sit and Spin type toy with a CD tray sticking out, you are not alone. Designer Won-Seok Lee apparently agrees.
The B-membrane computer concept does away with monitors entirely, instead opting for a built-in projector that will beam the display onto any surface. The membrane keyboard shows up whenever it’s needed as well as a built-in optical drive. It will probably be some time before we see something like this become a reality. It’s just not that easy to make a PC of the future look like the inside of a washing machine.
The Vibering is a concept device for the hearing impaired from designers Kwang-seok Jeong, Min-hee Kim and Hyun-joong Kim. The idea is to help the hearing impaired keep in touch with the world at large. The device has a sound detection and identification system within. The user would wear it as jewelry, no different then a pair of rings and a watch. The rings act as ears and hear the sound around the wearer.
They calculate distance and position, vibrating accordly, giving the user valuable information on their surroundings, through the watch part, which processes the sound and displays the results. It will even understand some phrases like “Excuse Me”, your name and car horns. This would be a miracle device for the hearing impaired should it come to pass.
Whether built by King Tut himself or the work of an ancient alien civilization, this is surely proof of alien intervention. The detail is just too amazing. There’s no way they could have done it. And the fact that an ancient PC case has been unearthed…
This work of art was built from nothing by Chris Kramer a.k.a “Jadragon”, and is called the EgyptMod PC. There’s some amazing detail, like hieroglyphics, fake jewels and an awesome aged look. Check out the Eye of Ra made of brass and inlaid with polished malachite and verisite. The project took over 200 hours of carving and he never once wavered and cried out for his mummy. It’s a truly inspiring creation.
Jackson Pollock called, he wants his watch back. Lately, it’s become more fashionable to wear a watch that would puzzle anyone looking over your shoulder trying to get the time, then an everyday watch. Designer Denis Guidone came up with the idea that is simply named “Ora Unica,” or One Hour.
So how does one make any sense out of the scribbled line that occupies the face of this watch? Apparently, it has two circular faces, with the minute hand on one and the hour hand on the other. As time marches on, the scribble changes. I know, that explanation doesn’t really help. It’s crazy. I’m guessing it’s 11:40 or so in the pic. If I owned it, I know what I’d be saying. Time to get a new watch.
The XYZ Computer Desk has an awesome sleek design and gives the Sync some competition. It’s beautiful and at the same time easily upgradeable. The best part of course, is that you have the full computer right there, but it’s taking up no extra room.
All of the components and cables are inside the desk. Whenever you need to upgrade, just open the lid. The CDRW/DVD, USB and Hot Keys are on the side. It’s just a concept at the moment, but I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see it go into production. It certainly makes life easier and saves space. Plus, it’s just plain pleasant to look at.
