Curved DSLR concept

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on August 14th, 2010

It’s safe to say that we’ve never seen a DSLR like this before. All DSLR cameras on the market look quite similar, but Yaniv Berg has a DSLR camera design that looks…different. Like an old army flashlight or curved pipe.

The design of this camera makes it easy for the user to take photos at some strange angles. In fact, you would be tempted to say “Up periscope” every time you snapped a pic. You would definitely stand out from the crowd.

Chip Tablet PC concept is sexy

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on August 4th, 2010

The Chip concept computer looks pretty hot. Sort of a desktop computer, notebook, and a tablet computer all together. This concept design has a removable display that can be converted into a tablet, while the hinged keyboard can be accessed when the display is docked.

It goes by the name“the Chip”. It’s a great design. Functional and futuristic. Women wouldn’t complain about ugly PCs at all if they all looked like this one.

Apple’s iPad Case Design now registered with Patent Office

Posted in iPad accessories by Conner Flynn on August 3rd, 2010

Sure, you have your choice of third-party iPad protective cases available, but Apple has a nicely functional iPad case of its own, and China’s patent office has now accepted Apple’s patent design for this iPad case. About time I guess.

The design has a microfiber interior and reinforced panels to provide some structure. As shown above, the case can fold down to double as a stand so you can type out emails easily. Looks a bit like a Trapper Keeper.

Nokia Kinetic concept phone stands up when you get a call

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on July 19th, 2010

We’ve never seen a phone raise and stand on it’s own like a zombie from a grave, but we dig this concept of just such a phone. This Nokia Kinetic concept design will use an electromagnet in it’s thick base to shift the balance so that it gradually rises or lowers itself.

When you get a call or a text message, the phone will gradually stand up, letting you know that you have a call. If you don’t want to answer the call, just tap it to reject. Pretty neat.

Crazy $250 carbon fiber and titanium coaster

Posted in Accessories by Shane McGlaun on July 13th, 2010

Carbon fiber and titanium are materials that are often used in the racing and aerospace industries. The materials are used because they are strong and very lightweight.

You don’t often hear of carbon fiber and titanium being used in the coaster market though. A company called Black Badger has unveiled just such a coaster. Each of them is made from a patterned roll of carbon fiber and titanium.

Heineken is known for its beer and the iconic green bottles the beer come sin. If you are tired of that green bottle and want something, a little more personalized the beer company is now offering customized bottles.

LG Flutter concept phone

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on June 3rd, 2010

Concept phones are cool, but not always practical. Check out the Flutter. It was an entrant for LG’s recent Design the Future contest. The design didn’t win, but it did snag the Prop Master’s Choice Award. When the phone is closed, the Flutter has a nice sleek design with only the keypad showing.

And when the phone is opened, it reveals a display that fans out, with a user interface that looks like the one on Apple’s iPhone. Pretty cool.

Stethoscope headphones

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on May 26th, 2010

I’m not a doctor and I don’t play one on TV, but these headphone stethoscopes could make me a hit with the ladies. You know how they’re always on the lookout for doctors.

These are from creative agency Antrepo Design, but sadly they are not actual products. Not yet. Hopefully we’ll be able to buy these someday soon though. Take a deep breath. Again. What is it Doc? I’m not sure, but this Pink Floyd song is rocking.

Tokyoflash Gridlock watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on May 23rd, 2010

Tokyoflash, makers of high-end nerdware, have yet another futuristic watch. The Gridlock watch features an asymmetrical design with a curved, brushed metal case, a black screen and an orange interface. I know, you have the usual question. How the hell do you read this one?

Well, the hours are displayed on the left in highlighted squares, while the minutes on the right in digits. It’s not nearly as tough to read as some of their other watches, but just as good looking.

The ever increasing watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on May 18th, 2010

Here’s another watch that looks like it came straight out of a Sci-Fi movie. It looks awesome and as is usually the case with these watches it is hard to read. This one comes from the folks at Yanko Design from Eleeno. It’s called the Ever Increasing Watch.

The face has a grid and dotted lines that looks like a graph. The top blue line is the hours, the middle green line is the minutes in tens, and the bottom red line shows single minutes. The lines have the numbers underneath as well to make it easier.

Space Invaders toaster

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on May 16th, 2010

We love us some Space Invaders around here and this Space Invaders toaster is pretty awesome if we do say so ourselves. It was designed by Chris Naylor, a student designer in London.

This Space Invaders toaster toasts individual invaders into your bread so you can zap them with butter or jam and eat them up. Should this toaster ever go into production, we would buy it in a heartbeat.

Avatar 1259B Watch looks as odd as its name

Posted in Watches by Shane McGlaun on May 12th, 2010

Sometimes gadgets make it to market that should have stayed at the concept stage. Such is the case with the really weird looking Avatar 1259B Watch that is available to purchase at Yanko Design.

This is one of the rare concept watches that Yanko shows off that you can actually buy. It uses 12 LED lights on the circular face to show hours, five LEDs show tens of minutes, and nine other LEDs show the minutes.

Desktop Microwave

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on May 2nd, 2010

If you spend a ton of time at your desk, the Desktop Microwave would be perfect for you. Sadly, it’s just a concept at the moment, but if it ever becomes real you won’t have to ever leave your desk again.

The Desktop microwave comes from the mind of designer Steve Gates, who’s life goal is apparently to make everyone fat and deskbound, with a taste for microwaved food. Oh, wait. Isn’t that the America we know and love?

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on May 1st, 2010

Having anti-virus software on your computer is essential. You also have to worry about getting a virus on your removable storage nowadays too, so designers have come up with this U+ USB Hub concept.

It’s a USB hub in the shape of a cross, that offers an antivirus scanner, allowing you to scan your flash drives, ensuring that the infection doesn’t spread from there. It should also keep you safe from vampires and demons.
