2Oct2031 concept watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on January 4th, 2010

The 2Oct2031 concept watch looks like a Sci-fi movie prop. That’s what we love about it. It’s part stealth, part alien, all cool. It’s from designer Tao Ma. The 2Oct2031 concept watch has angles that might be from a stealth plane or a diamond.

This one will be aimed at the Chinese market, but the concept watch isn’t ready for production just yet. We hope that other watch makers are paying attention. We want more like this.

Cake server not only slices, but lifts treats

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on December 29th, 2009

Until now cake server technology has only allowed us to cut our tasty treats. The lifting was left to us. The technology just had not advanced. Until now. The Magisso Cake Server is a cake serving game changer as well as a design concept by Finnish student Maria Kivijärvi.

Slice this stainless steel utensil into any cake or pie and with a light squeeze you can lift it out, onto your plate or directly into your piehole. Your choice.

The Rambler Socket hides an extension cord in your wall

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on December 28th, 2009

Short cords on things like vacuum cleaners really stink. And if you use an extension cord, well, it just gets in the way. Let’s face it, cords are just plain messy no matter what you do. Well, the newly designed Rambler Socket is here to help.

It’s basically a 1.5 meter cord rolled up and hidden behind a socket. When needed, all you need to do is pull the cord out and connect your appliance instead of using an extension. When you’re done, just give the cord a slight tug and it winds the cord back into the wall.

Audi Traveling Shaver concept

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on December 27th, 2009

Normally we don’t think of shavers as being beautifully designed, but this concept shaver from Audi sure looks sweet. It’s enough to make you shave all day long even if you aren’t covered in hair like a Sasquatch.

For now this is just a concept, but if artist Poling Huang ever gets it done for real, Audi lovers will be well groomed indeed. Just look at that beautiful sheen and shape. Looks like all it’s missing are the wheels.

Trash Know dustbin knows best

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on December 23rd, 2009

Taking out the trash is hard work. You have to lift it out of the bin, carry it elsewhere, then tear off another bag, shake it out and insert it inside. Whew! If only we could eliminate a few steps.

The Trash Know dustbin is a more practical trash can that makes it easier by incorporating disposable bags into itself. At the bottom of the bin is a dispenser that holds the bags. Just pull one to line the bin whenever you take the trash out, and when the bag is full, just tear away the bag.

Picture table: Hide your kitchen table on the wall

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on December 20th, 2009

Kitchen tables take up so much room in our homes. And we only use them for eating, so they don’t get used nearly often enough to justify the space they consume. The Picture Table aims to cure that, letting you use the table and then get it out of the way.

The Picture Table is like any normal table, but when you are done using it and want some space back, just flip it up onto the wall and it becomes a large frame. Great idea, especially if you live in an apartment.

The Printer Toaster drops it like it’s hot

Posted in Kitchen by Conner Flynn on December 8th, 2009

The Printer Toaster drops it like it's hotThis is a neat toaster design that mimics an inkjet printer. Sure, it doesn’t print on the butter, but what can you do? Still, we love the design. And we aren’t the only ones. Othmar Mühlebach’s design won second prize at the Berner Design Awards.

The design is refreshing and a nice change from the usual, looking modern and retro at the same time. The only flaw we see is that the bottom tray will be full of crumbs in no time. I’m not cleaning that up.

NOVA Concept DSLR

Posted in Cameras by Conner Flynn on November 29th, 2009

NOVA Concept DSLRI love video games, but I’m not into photography. That probably describes many of us. This might be just the camera for me. Something that will bridge the gap between games and pictures.

It’s from designer Erin Fong and is dubbed the “NOVA DSLR”. The folding handle is obviously great for taking one-handed shots. And hey, it’s shaped kinda sorta like a game controller, so I already know how to use that. If a Klingon Starship and a camera mated, this is it right here. Look at that design. Those swooping wings. Looks like it could take down a Federation camera-ship.

Mons Lavabo Monster Sink

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on November 24th, 2009

Mons Lavabo Monster SinkHere’s a monster of a sink. Literally. The Mons Lavabo is an eco-friendly sink concept design that’s controlled by an automatic hand sensor. It’s designed to be appealing to children, but if I were a kid, this sink would scare the bejesus out of me.

It looks like it’s going to eat you as your blood slowly goes down the drain, leaving no evidence for your mom and dad, who are obviously the next victims. But hell, until it does eat your kid, the automatic sensor means that kids won’t waste water. If they can even be persuaded to get near it anyway.

Street lights powered by trash

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on November 15th, 2009

Street lights powered by trashCity streets could do with a makeover where lighting and trash are concerned. Designer Haneum Lee thinks he has the solution to both. This concept could keep streets lit while keeping them relatively trash free. The base of the street lights are trash baskets that turn what they can into compost, using methane to generate the power needed to keep the lights going.

It could definitely work, especially in large cities, since there is no shortage of trash. We love to see concepts that kill two birds with one stone or two problems with a single idea.

Link Mugs help you carry multiple coffees easily

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on November 2nd, 2009

Link Mugs help you carry multiple coffees easilyHere’s a pretty handy mug design. Especially if you’re that guy who gets everyone their coffee at the office. You won’t spill a drop if you use Link Mugs. It’s a simple design. Each mug has male and female, cross-shaped areas that allow it to join with the next mug.

So you can link these mugs together and carry several mugs at the same time safely. Pretty cool idea huh? Or a hot one if they are full of Java. The set includes three ceramic coffee mugs for $54.

Gavari violin is a modern take on an old classic

Posted in Musical Instruments by Conner Flynn on November 1st, 2009

Gavari violin is a modern take on an old classicThe typical violin is based on designs created over 300 years ago. It’s worked well and has given us some beautiful music, but it’s time for an upgrade. Modern design techniques and 21st century materials can surely improve it.

That’s the idea behind the Gavari Semiacoustic Violin from Austrian designer Gerda Hopfgartner. Hopfgartner was inspired by modern yachts and “feminine curves and sundry corset outlines of the Baroque, Rococo, and Biedermeier ages”. We have no idea what she’s talking about, but we love the results.

Lenovo All-in-One IdeaCentre B500 sports stealthy sexy design

Posted in Lenovo by Conner Flynn on October 26th, 2009

Lenovo All-in-One IdeaCentre B500 sports stealthy sexy designLenovo introduced a few new computers today, but the most interesting visually is the B500 all-in-one, which sports a sexy and stealth fighter like angular design. The IdeaCentre B500 isn’t just about looks though. It has decent specs.

At it’s highest and most expensive configuration, the 23-inch 16×9 B500 packs a Core 2 Quad processor, 4GB of memory, 1TB hard drive, DVD or Blu-ray, and an optional TV tuner with remote.

Rotary phone iPod dock

Posted in iPod Accessories by Conner Flynn on October 22nd, 2009

Rotary phone iPod dockThe RotariPhone is an iPod dock and speaker system built into an old rotary phone. It’s alot like this one from last December, but it looks more polished.

Just put your iPod in the cradle where you’d normally hang up the phone. The handset sits on its side and plays your music through where the phone’s speaker and mic used to be. It’s an awesomely retro design, and when not in use looks like a standard phone.

This showerhead is crazy, crazy like a squid

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on October 18th, 2009

showerhead No, that’s not a showerhead made especially for Medusa. It’s a Vado shower head that allows for tons of adjustment and fine tuning so you can get it just how you want it. But just how much adjustment does one need in the shower?

Just do your thing and get out already. Ever since you bought that crazy shower head, other people have been waiting in line to use it. You are having way too much fun in there squidboy. And you look like a prune,
