Touchy-feely Hearing Aid

Touchy-feely Hearing Aid

Conventional hearing aids come with a lot of short comings. Loud noises making the wearer feel irritable, the awkwardness of wearing bigger sized hearing aids and many more. The CLOSE is an attempt at an alternative system to provide speech input to the hearing impaired by means of tactile sensations.

Story of ‘Mr. Up’ and ‘Mr. Down’

Story of ‘Mr. Up’ and ‘Mr. Down’

There is a very inspirational story behind the creation of the Legacy Machine N°1 Xia Hang Watch by MB&F. It all began when the Legacy Machine N°1 was conceived by Maximilian Büsser, the force behind the enchanting MB&F Watches. Daydreaming how he would radically design a three-dimensional machine for the wrist, Max dreamt of including Eiffel Tower and Jules Verne to its design.

The New iWatch With iOS 7 And No Siri

The New iWatch With iOS 7 And No Siri

Being practical is the main reason behind shunning Siri, speakers and mobile connectivity in this new iWatch concept. As a typical SmartWatch, this concept hosts some very non-typical features. For example, to save on battery consumption, the design includes solar energy and wireless recharging. Siri and cellular connectivity are not included because of their power draining capabilities.

Celestial Accessory

Celestial Accessory

Spacetime is an original watch concept based on the movement and orbits of celestial objects- in particular that of our own planet. After all, our concept of time on Earth is relative to its motion around the sun, making a day a day and a year a year. Elegantly futuristic, it’s out-of-this-world cool. Watch and see how it works —>

Watch Me, Please!

Watch Me, Please!

It’s the current norm to have smart watches hook up with smartphones via Bluetooth, however they are limited by their display size. The Watch-Me has extended display up to 20mm x 140mm and with gyroscope sensor installation. The accompanying video explains how this concept works and I am sold on it. Can’t wait to get my hands on one of these babies and try them on….have a look….

Take Your Pills On Time

Take Your Pills On Time

The Pill Watch is an innovative way to ensure that you don’t forget to take your pills on time. It even has a small compartment to store the tablet. I suppose you can keep it as an emergency backup pill or the real deal. The watch is capable of measuring the pulse rate, which is a good add-on.

Luna Time

Luna Time

The Luna Watch is a clever design that represents the process of waxing and waning of the real moon as a way of communicating the time. What this means is that Waning to the right indicates ‘AM’ and waning to the left means ‘PM’. You can recharge the watch via USB and access the functions menu by adjusting the crown. In all, designer ilmo Ahn wants you to own your moon.

A Void in Time

A Void in Time

Designed for the Fossil brand, the O Ring watch is a metaphorical symbol of the consistency of time which has no lapse. The open center piques the viewers interest when it becomes clear that the mechanical functionality doesn’t emanate from the center as we’re familiar with. On a side note, I’m suddenly craving a doughnut.
