You know what I’ve noticed? Only certain appliances have seen game-changing innovations in them and looking at them, you can instantly tell the difference between an innovative product, and a product that’s begging for innovation. Look at the vacuum cleaner, the water purifier, the thermostat. Look at how far they’ve come. Now look at the bathroom geyser, the sewing machine… They look like they haven’t seen innovation in the past 20 years.
Comparable to the kind of technological and aesthetic innovation we’ve seen by companies like Dyson, Nest, and the likes of them, the E-Ink Sewing Machine concept by Zeng Hsing Industrial breathes a breath of fresh air into the particular category. Its angular, chiseled black and chrome body looks like something out of Tron, while what’s truly innovative is the e-ink display on the side that not only gives you a wide variety of useful data, it even guides you through spool loading processes and lets you choose from a large database of stitching styles by showing you graphics that make much more sense on screen than having to open and browse through a user manual every time you use the machine.
The E-Ink Sewing Machine is a winner of the Red Dot Design Concept Award for the year 2017.
