It Binds the Galaxy Together

It Binds the Galaxy Together

Welcome to what you might call tomorrows… business card? This post features an exercise in mobile device brainstorming under the title “Tie.” Each of the pictures in this project is an interactive version of what folks pass around today. Maybe it’s just the simpler version of the smartphone. Or maybe… it’s something completely new! Devour, chew on, spit out, taste, nibble on these images. Tie them all together.

Three Little Pigs

Three Little Pigs

They’re not pigs at all. They’re a mobile, wireless projector and speaker set called Polpettek. Say that 10x fast. The anthropomorphic flavor is supposed to be more inviting and blend in better as objects of design rather than electronic equipment. The little speakers have magnetized feet so if you wanted to stack them into one large multichannel speaker – you can. There’s no info regarding specs but the designer’s last name is Alessi (no relation). Uncanny tho. It would fit right in their product line.

Scribble A Beautiful Masterpiece

Scribble A Beautiful Masterpiece

One of my biggest regrets is that I don’t have a good hand at drawing. I mean I can copy someone else’s sketches but there’s a lot room for improvement. Incidentally, the ScribbleBot is a drawing tool for people like me. Ones who crave to draw neatly, but just don’t have the in-built talent for it. The device can be fed with a preconceived drawing paths downloaded off the internet, to maneuver your hand and pen in way that results in some awesome sketching. The video gives you the hang of how things are done.

All-In-One Credit Card

All-In-One Credit Card

Quite a few of us use multiple credit cards and every time one card expires, its plastic adds to the trash. So do the numerous receipts that we accumulate after swiping our CC. The fundamental of the One Card Electronic Card is quite simple; it wants to eliminate the trash (and resolve issues like identity theft via discarded expired CCs) by proposing to be this all-credit-cards-in-one device. On one end of the gadget is a Memory Card Slot that will help the user upload their various CC Details.

Alternate E-Book

Alternate E-Book

I am a voracious reader but I must confess that I prefer paper to the E-Books. However I won’t let my bias get in the way of showcasing the Bibliofile Electronic Book Reader. This one’s a nifty reader that uses page-turning gestures to generate the power necessary to update an e-paper display. The display supports something called the Active Reading margin which features apps like dictionary and word games that make reading fun without distracting much.

Music and Time On Your Wrist

Music and Time On Your Wrist

We’ve evolved from Walkman to iPod (plus whatever else there is, let’s be honest) and from wrist watch to cellphone-held-clock. Now. What would have happened if instead of the clock merging with the cellphone, the clock merged with the music device? We’ve got wrist tunes, contact!

Only Label Power Works Here

Only Label Power Works Here

Upgrading a redundant cellphone means adding to the pile of toxic trash that accumulates all around the world. The Label With Green is a concept phone aims at weaning you off the upgrade mania. To power the phone you need to use ECO-Green Electronic Labels, which are solar paper labels that juice up the phones various components (display, speaker, keypad, camera, and solar battery) independently. So to turn on any function, say display, you need to stick on enough solar labels onto the rear cover to power it.

New Kinda Treasure Hunt

New Kinda Treasure Hunt

One of my favorite games at a kiddies Birthday Party used to be Treasure Hunt. The charm of such traditional games has been lost, ever since gaming consoles have come on the scene. So it’s nice to see that the love for such games rekindled albeit in a techno avatar as the EMIL Experience Outdoors. This hand-held console is like a GPS compass that allows you to form and execute treasure hunts, biking routes and expeditions, Hunting Mr. X in the field and Scouts Games. It can also come in handy to polish your Navigational Skills. Super!

Picasso Can Draw To Switch-off Lights

Picasso Can Draw To Switch-off Lights

So what if your drawing sucks, the JustDrawIt unit won’t mind; it will in fact help to manage the power supply to the various household equipments hooked on to it. How? A main device and several remote-controlled receivers visualize the service life of your synced electrical appliances. A haptic interface allows you to hand-draw on the timeline-based main unit, defining the period of usage. When the time’s up, the equipment will be automatically turned off. Oh shoot! Just One Thing…you can’t misplace the pen now!
