Aptly named the Logitech Lapdesk, it explores the integration of a stylus/tablet combination directly into the laptop body. It’s a perfect portable solution for graphic designers, artists, architects and anyone else who works with creative software.

torq_1

Completely 3D printed from steel, the matte black Torq cracks walnuts with ease. Just place them in the concavity marked by the design detail and twist the key down.

praxis_bike_layout

Designed to maximize your last-mile commute, the Praxis bicycle is both aptly named for the axis on which it conveniently folds down to half its normal size.

focx_smart_wallet_10

infraredcam_layout

Designed as a peripheral attachment to your IOS or Android smartphone, it snaps on in an instant and works by translating thermal energy (infrared light) into a visible image on your phone.

iphone_notch_1

I hate the notch. I see it as a necessity, and I acknowledge its presence (with red-hot hatred), and I’m sure you do too, but I promise you from this moment onward, you’ll look at it differently. Very differently. Not a single radius was a true radius, and the notch you look at was in fact, an inverted trapezoid.

The Sensor Controlled Swimming Safety Device sits around your neck, and will trigger when it comes in contact with water, but even comes with a manual trigger.

mink_camper_06

As if the Scandinavian landscape couldn’t get any prettier, imagine experiencing it from a cozy little pod on the back of your 4×4.

This awe-inspiring design comes with a pretty nifty looking cam mechanism that allows the blade to rotate on a completely different axis as compared to switchblades/folding-blades.

Just when we thought Wool & Oak’s iconic 6-in-1 modular bag couldn’t get better, this happened. Our favorite shape shifting Duffle Backpack returns in a water and weather resistant avatar… and at half the price! Buy now!

honey_strip_1

The Honey Strip lets you plug individual points into one another to create an extension board.

eagle_scooter_02

This scooter with oversized front tire and itty bitty back tire deliver a cool, contrasting aesthetic but they’re also functional as the compact back tire fits into the frame when folded.

apple_glasses_1

The Apple Glasses are a conceptual pair of AR glasses that marry AR technology (an area Apple is a pioneer in now) along with product design that’s truly representative of what Apple stands for.

volt_01

The Volt takes portable charging to the next level. In fact, I can’t recall ever seeing a mobile car charger let alone one that flies.

lytro_04

From the mode dial to the power button, its controls are oversized and intuitive to use. Its fluid form looks robust and less delicate, inspiring confidence in the user’s grip.
