Vertebrae vertical bathroom system

Vertebrae vertical bathroom system
You can see right off the bat that this is an ideal way to save space in your bathroom. It uses very little floor space and so the Vertebrae vertical bathroom system is a perfect multi-purpose bathroom unit for luxury apartments with a space shortage. The name obviously comes from it’s design.

It houses everything you expect to find in a regular bathroom, it even has showerheads, a sink, a cistern, a potty and lots of storage units. This has got to be the ultimate space saving bathroom design.

Chronoswiss Wristmaster: The straight jacket of watches

Chronoswiss Wristmaster: The straight jacket of watches
It might help to have arms like the hulk to wear this monstrosity. It’s yet another of those odd watches we love from Basel Fair. It’s not for the feint of heart and it’s not for puny men with spaghetti arms. It goes by the “Chronoswiss Wristmaster”. Look at the size of this thing. It master’s any wrist it attaches to. Putting it on must be like saddling a small horse.

It’s hailed as the First Automatic Board Watch for the Wrist, and features a double strap and display, consisting of a chronograph on the right and a standard display on the left. It measures a full 84mm x 42mm.

iPod Lamps combine music, with a lamp…

iPod Lamps combine music, with a lamp…
Look at those silly iPod lamps all gathered together and having a great old time. All colorful and retro looking. They think they’re pretty special. I don’t have the heart to tell them that they offer nothing new. I mean, that would just be cruel. But, the thing is, they aren’t all that special. Sure, they’re retro looking, but get this. I’ve been listening to music with a lamp on at the same time for practically my whole life.

Don’t get me wrong, I like the colors, but I like you, already own a lamp. On the other hand, if lighting is something new for you and you want an iPod dock to go along with your foray into electricity, it retails for $150 and comes in white, pink, black and brown colors.

Older geeks listen up. Do you miss all the fun of using a good old fashioned rotary dialler? You know, back when just entering seven digits took forever, accompanied by that sound of the dial turning back in place with each number.

The iDial is an application for your iPhone that might just bring back memories. Those days were pretty damn inconvenient, but on some levels you might say that we actually had more interaction with our devices. I guess that’s because we did half the work. The iDial is just a download away.

City Mouse: Smooth curves & ergonomic design

City Mouse: Smooth curves & ergonomic design
We’ve seen our share of concept mice here at the Brick, but this one tends to hold your eye and make you pause. It looks somewhat sexy, yet unfinished. It’s almost prententious. The City mouse is designed by d-Vision and has a shape that’s supposedly much more in harmony with how we use our hands.

The design means more precise movement and fewer repetitive stress injuries. As far as anyone can tell, you don’t slide this thing around on your desk. You tilt it, rocking the curved bottom to move your arrow. It’s nice. I like it. I would rock it’s curved bottom, for sure.

S- Series is all about the tactile experience

S- Series is all about the tactile experience
New phones have all the bells and whistles, but they leave a lot to be desired as far as design and feel. The S-series is just the opposite, combining sleek styling with quality materials in a compact package. Materials like bamboo and black acrylic with Brushed Aluminium Buttons. It makes owning and viewing the phone a joy. That much is obvious from the images alone.

The idea of this phone is to stand out and make a statement. And to do so without cutting out all of the features. All the key features are easily used without having to go out of your way and waste time.

NES re-imagined is super hot

NES re-imagined is super hot
I just found myself back in 1984, but in an alternate reality. If I can I’m gonna stay awhile, cause this redesigned NES kicks all kinds of ass. Look at those curves. The controllers look like delicious and super sexy candy bars.

You can thank Javier Segovia, a digital artist from Spain, for this magnificent bit of eye candy. This is his vision of an updated, redesigned Nintendo Entertainment System. Appropriately, he calls it reNESED. Oh yeah. Several geeks have just wet themselves and have become drooling vegetables.

NEO 8 watch makes time retro

NEO 8 watch makes time retro
If you’re in the market for an awesome watch that doesn’t cost $1,000, then the NEO 8 watch certainly fits the bill. It’s currently priced at approximately $210, and is available in green or orange segments on a black background complete with a matching rubber strap.

The first two columns will tell you the hours, while the minutes are on the last two columns. It’s got a nice understated retro look, with grest lines. The three buttons on the side add a nice touch. As with many of these new watches, it might take some getting used to, telling the time by using blocks, but your wrist will be looking good.

Wii Wheel design prototypes

Wii Wheel design prototypes
Nintendo peripherals don’t just grow on digital trees. Real live people have to design them. Whether it’s the Zapper or the steering wheel, a ton of research and thought goes into them. During the design process for the wheel, Nintendo studied steering wheels from many go karts to make sure they got things just right.

They tried roughly 30 designs before they got it the way they wanted. I personally can’t wait to play some Mario Kart and if I know Nintendo, their final wheel may not look as cool as some of the ones above, but it should perform very nicely.

The Hamilton Code Breaker watch

The Hamilton Code Breaker watch
Hamilton introduced an awesome luxury watch for sci-fi fans at the BaselWorld 2008. The Hamilton Code Breaker is a watch with some amazing design and great level of detail. Just look at that square case and the dials within. Hamilton is not new to watches with a Sci-Fi flare.

They have enjoyed a long relationship with the science fiction movie genre, going back to 1968 when a desk clock was features in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. They also made the alien-shaped watches from Men in Black. Their watches aren’t for those on a Timex budget though, the Hamilton Code Breaker will set you back $1,995. And any geek knows that will buy you a lot of Star Trek or Star Wars toys.

Jet House is awesome, looks fast

Jet House is awesome, looks fast
Fear not humans, this thing did not just land on our planet and demand that we submit to anal probing. It’s a house designed by Jérôme Olivet, who learned from Philippe Starck. The Jet House is designed to look as if it’s moving fast, despite the fact that it’s molded concrete structure is attached to a metallic building pad.

It’s a two-story structure, the floors connected by an elevator. Olivet calls the style “biomorphic,” and the lines are so beautifully rounded and streamlined that it is very calming. The thing obviously cost a fortune to build. I not only want to live in it, but I want to attach some lasers see it fly through space.

The Zuse toaster makes toast fun

The Zuse toaster makes toast fun
I’m not sure how fun toast is capable of being, but certainly it’s got to get better then pushing the lever and waiting for it to pop. The Zuse toaster works like a dot matrix printer for toast and will burn 12 x 12 pixel images onto your bread. It can be programmed for random patterns or you can use your own designs if you like.

It’s probably the first truly interactive toast and your mornings no longer have to be boring. Unfortunately, this is still in its concept stages. No doubt the designer is greedy and keeping all the fun for himself. But one day soon our toast will get an upgrade. Until then, toast will be as boring as it ever was.

A chair fit for the Dark Knight himself

A chair fit for the Dark Knight himself
In our ongoing attempt to decorate Wayne Manor entirely, I present to you the latest in Bat chairs. The Half Moon chair by designer Louis Saul was recently unveiled at the imm Cologne 2008. It’s designed as a wing chair with built-in skeleton-like bright orange seat cushioning. It’s a must for those nights when you’ve just thrown the Joker in Arkham asylum once again and you just need some rest.

Just sit back and relax…Until You get that call…Or until you see this signal in the sky…Then you can forget relaxing while watching a movie in this… Such is the life of a brooding and rich super hero.

Awesome looking Sony PSP 2 concept

Awesome looking Sony PSP 2 concept
Check out this pic of a new Sony PSP 2 concept. It’s pretty sweet looking and has a pretty big screen. Kotaku had a contest to see what kind of cool PSP 2 concepts readers could come up with, and this is one of them. Watching movies on this one would be very nice. Unfortunately, they don’t really exist. There were some pretty interesting designs, and some haha funny ones, but this is one of my favorites.

Abstract dinette: this is your furniture on drugs

Posted in Furniture by Conner Flynn on February 22nd, 2008

Abstract dinette
This dinette could probably make you feel a bit dizzy if you looked at it too long. If furniture has personalities I would have to say that these could be classified as either “vertically challenged” or “objects on crack”. They’re equal parts creepy and cool. Designer Benjamin Hopf wanted to freeze them in time as they are falling apart before your eyes. But in contrast, they’re just as sturdy as most other chairs.

There’s no price listed for these on the site, but being art, I’m sure it’s inflated. It would be great to buy a bunch of this stuff and redo someone’s room while they’re away. They might be convinced that they have entered another dimension. One not of sight or sound, but one of mind…
