Let the Dresser Do the Thinking

Let the Dresser Do the Thinking

Snappy Dresser uses a system based on common sense reasoning that matches clothes styles and functions with the concepts needed for the context. The system returns suggestions for complete outfits and the selected outfit is recorded as the user’s feedback to the system’s recommendation for a particular occasion. For instance- a set of a set of clothes that the user initially selected for swimming will be matched to the activity and they will be suggested the next time swimming is the occasion.

Long Distance Glass

Long Distance Glass

One of the reasons why I adore Li Jianye’s works is his simplistic approach to design. Be it the original Flexibin or the iShelf; both exude charm, wit and thoughtful detailing. This time around he has a functional toy for us, The Telescup, a set of drinking glasses that coordinate to become an impromptu telescope. Now isn’t this what we call clever!

Power Blind!

Power Blind!

The Liteon Eco Leaf is an amazing concept that replaces the traditional window blinds. The fabric used includes solar cells that recharge during the day, while blocking out the harsh sunlight at the same time. In the evening, the blinds emit ambient lights and jazzes-up the room. A delightful little display to one corner tells you the current room temperature. Quite a do-able concept if you ask me; kitsch and modern!

Classy Compact Sport Yacht

Classy Compact Sport Yacht

This goal of the MY50M mega-yacht was to develop a new trend in marine craft that might revolutionize the future design of other yachts to be both elegant and eye-catching. Straight lines, automotive shapes and a wave piercing stem design are the most striking features of the exterior as they add a sense of sportiness and power to the overall aesthetic.

One Fun Lamp

One Fun Lamp

No, your eyes aren’t seeing things! Just look a little closer and you’ll notice that the lamps of the Minimo series aren’t actually defying gravity; instead, each shade is supported by an acrylic base that faintly mimics the silhouette of familiar classic forms. Clear bases and interchangeable shades mean endless customization to fit both classic and contemporary settings.

Many Options to Time

Many Options to Time

The WRYST VARIANCE is a unique approach to wearing time. The digital face can take on a myriad of displays, some more novel than others, but variety is the key proponent here. The entire face can be removed and attached to straps, keychains, dog tags, etc.. And if those options weren’t enough, you get to choose from seven colors. I must be an old fogie because I’m actually missing the colors black and white.

Future Gem is Here

Future Gem is Here

The best thing about the Nokia GEM Concept phone is that it is all based on existing technologies, in other words it’s a future phone that can be built on reality! For example, one of the emerging technologies used in this concept are bi-stable displays that do not consume power if the content is not changing. This means the phone has a seamless display that encompasses the phone all over. The video below explains how digital personalization and multitasking can be achieved by using all sides of the phone.

Electric Ferrari... Whaaaaa?

Electric Ferrari… Whaaaaa?

The Ferrari Millenio, as the name might allude, is a futuristic super-car concept that features a complex combination of materials and technologies that we can hope will become a serious reality before the end of the next millenium. The two-seater includes a buckypaper reinforced body that is stronger than steel and lighter than carbon fiber as well as dual electric engines that can be recharged via solar panels or through an inductive power transfer system.

Go-Anywhere Sugar Cane Harvester

Go-Anywhere Sugar Cane Harvester

On large sugar cane plantations, harvesting machines are limited to flat terrain and even then have a high rate of flipping over. On smaller plantations, harvesting is done manually due to hillside terrain and high cost of machinery. This redesigned harvester aims to provide a more efficient way of harvesting across the broad range of different sized plantations by keeping a low profile that can be used on both hillsides and flat terrain without sacrificing power or time.

Automotive Inspired Timepiece

Automotive Inspired Timepiece

The AP1 watch is a nod to the first generation Honda S2000, one of the first cars to offer a push button start to the mass market. The watch mimics the form of the button and is equal in simple functionality: time, alarm, date, and stop watch/lap timer. A great watch for the weekend racer and automotive enthusiast!

The Easy Binder

The Easy Binder

Hole Punch Binder is a combination of a punch machine and a binder; basically office equipment that will make filing sheets a whole lot easier! Writing paperwork and maintaining files is quite an art and if anything helps to make the process easy, should be applauded. Thankfully all my sheets are digital documents and am saved from all this hassle!
