Precise Measures While Doing Interiors

Precise Measures While Doing Interiors

If you failed math in school or hated triangles, this theory may go bouncers on you. I’m not giving you the Pythagorean theorem to prove but simply telling you of this handy device that could get you the perfectly angled walls and smooth looking interiors. The Red Point Measure is a digital measure that applies current laser ray measure techniques to mathematics formula of triangles by simply measuring a target from afar.

Interactive Tiles

Interactive Tiles

The I-Quad uses tile shaped LED electronic boards held together by a simple frame and interacts with external devices via USB or wireless. Each tile is capable of a low-res, almost dot matrix-like resolution. Essentially anything can be displayed across these tiles; from communication, entertainment, even ambient lighting.

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.

Give Your Input on The Mozilla Phone

Give Your Input on The Mozilla Phone

Working with Aza Raskin of Mozilla Labs as part of their Concept Series, yours truly is helming the open source project to design the Mozilla Phone.  The lovely BlackBerry you see here is the first throw-away concept to come out of the project blog at MozPhone.com. While only a crude mashup of a Blackberry 7130 and the Optimus Keyboard, its serves to illustrate how much more we need phones to communicate with us.

It's Guitar Learnin' Time with Dr. Roboto

It’s Guitar Learnin’ Time with Dr. Roboto

Designer Eugene Cheong brings you “Maestro,” laser and mp3 guitar learning aid. You put mp3s into the device via SD card, the songs are converted into guitar tablature, and the tablature is projected, with laser lights, onto the guitar fretboard as you play. No longer will there be a barrier between you and the great and powerful rock and roll god!

It is a rock and roll (laser show) fantasy!

As Simple or Complex as You Want it to be

As Simple or Complex as You Want it to be

Fingerprint recognition to activate biometric profile. Blank surface when not in use. 3-D interface with artificial intelligence that automatically rearranges your options and thangs based on usage and preference. Touchscreen with growing buttons (really, 3D, up in your face.) How many “smart” phones does it take to screw together the world community?

I got the hookup! Or should I say C. Ferraz do?

More Vacuous Crap From ole' Mac

More Vacuous Crap From ole’ Mac

As Yanko regulars might notice, we post a lot of concepts from Mac Funamizu, but I’m putting my foot down and stopping the love fest here and now. This flexible OLED monitor concept which supposes the OLED material would roll up inside the white stand and allow the user to choose the optimum screen size. Supposing that the material could compact itself that tightly, he goes on and mounts a cd drive behind the translucent screen and for good measure throws some invisible projection technology in as well.

Sculpted Phone No Different From Hosta

Sculpted Phone No Different From Hosta

More often than not, designers take inspiration from the natural environment to come up with something spectacular in technology. If it weren’t for the dragonflies we wouldn’t have helicopter now, would we? The project we see here is a simple home phone taking inspiration from the Hosta Plant. For those with a serious lack of green-thumb-knowledge let me tell you that it’s a foliage plant that is not fussy and comes in a broad range of solid colors.

Toilet Water. Not Just for Plants Anymore.

Toilet Water. Not Just for Plants Anymore.

You need to know all about toilet water. Believe me. When you grow up, you’ll have a toilet of your own, and then, you will want to know all about the water in it. And so will your dog and maybe hamster. Hamsters are conscious about water waste.

Water waste! This toilet uses the power of shower water to solve this cold case. Warm case?
