LG Synthesis Belongs On Your Keychain

LG Synthesis Belongs On Your Keychain

Another beautifully rendered phone concept from our favorite 16 year old designer, Andrew Seunghyun Kim, his LG Synthesis concept presents a simple touchscreen based smart phone.  While subverted in this post’s title, the phone’s hole is actually intended  as a low-tech viewfinder and docking port on its tree-like recharging station.  Beyond that, it’s solar powered headset and Kate Moss-like form factor make this the most refined thing to have come out of any 16-year-old I know.

Fold & Go Headphones

Fold & Go Headphones

I’ve seen folding headphones before but this one is a little different. There are 2 joints from which you can adjust the headphone size and pivot them into a moon shaped packaged. The final collapsed package keeps the delicate speakers away from would be sharp objects and makes the entire thing much easier to pack.

Lights And Sound Show Right At Home

Lights And Sound Show Right At Home

Disco comes home with these shimmy speaker spheres that hang on the walls like a mural or artwork. Adorable and very sexy, the lights patterns displayed by the set go in sync with the rhythm and beats of the music being played. Beyond awesome is the graphic bars representation that corresponds to the equalizer of the speakers. The woofers coordinate perfectly with either your PC or Home Theater and put on an amazing lights and sound show for you.

The Zohan of Astromech Droids

I’m sure you remember R2-D2′s brief stint as a server on Jabba the Hutt’s sail barge. I bet you’re aware of R2′s fancy-smacy real-world cousin Bar2-D2. But do you know about Ciclope, the hair stylist robot? Hello there, friendly one-eyed comb holder, what are you uh- AHH! ALIVE!

Oh, you pour me haircut coffee. Excellent.

No Cartoon Hill Too Comical for this Buggy

No Cartoon Hill Too Comical for this Buggy

How many times have you watched a silly cartoon where a stroller or buggie rolls away from a mother, only to be narrowly avoided by an oncoming vehicle? Like a billion, probably. In less wonderful news, this sort of thing does actually happen. And quite often in Australia, according to designer James William Wansey! So he’s made this fantastic little device to stay the cart!

Know Your Energy Consumption

Know Your Energy Consumption

Everyone talks about going green, consuming less, conserving and recycling. But for heavens sake will, SOMEONE tell me just how do I go about knowing which room is consuming extra energy? If in a community, how do we get to keep tabs and monitor the consumption of all the houses? The answer is quite simple actually; get someone to manufacture what Rocco has conceptualized. O.e.i is an OLED touch screen light switch that represents all your misgivings.

Precise Measures While Doing Interiors

If you failed math in school or hated triangles, this theory may go bouncers on you.

Digital Jeeves Can Get Me Anything!

Digital Jeeves Can Get Me Anything!

Ok people, you got to humor me for this one. Travel with me into the future where we are so dependant on technology that we don’t even trust our secretaries to get us the bagel or coffee right! It’s the future where bots and machines share a better relationship than humans, and have more Contacts in the Right Places to get us access to exclusive events and restaurants…simply at the click of a button!

Decoding The Cries Of A Baby

Decoding The Cries Of A Baby

Who said that maternal (or paternal) instincts come in naturally when you hold your precious little bundle! I went trough a lot of trial and error with my crying baby. I didn’t know if he was crying for more milk, was unwell or wanted more affection. Wish I could re-do those days with something like this BabySays. It’s a device that kinda deciphers the baby’s crying and gives you, the parent an idea of what might be bothering him.

War Of The iPod DJs

War Of The iPod DJs

I don’t know about the club scene in your area but apparently young Parisians are indulging in iPod battles where they play their music over a nightclub’s PA system, regaling the crowds to their tunes. 4 Leaf is one such platform that allows the young-guns to battle it four ways. Meaning four iPod DJs get to play their gig using just this one console. I like it! To learn more about how to party, head over.

A Fresh New Look At The Computer

A Fresh New Look At The Computer

We are so traditional in our ways that we tend to presume the obvious materials of choice for something like our computers. Now, would you buy the theory of stretching a Bamboo fabric across the aluminum frame of the comp to protect its innards? This will not only cut costs of manufacturing by 65%, but also the bamboo will also do well as a ventilator.
