Why didn't Apple think of this?

Why didn’t Apple think of this?

OptUX lets users get the most from the 5′s larger screen size without sacrificing ergonomics. The interface can tell if you are holding the phone in your left or right hand, automatically articulating the apps in that direction so their within reach of your thumb. Perfect for working with one hand!

Sterile Hands

Sterile Hands

Read on to know more.

Google Chromecast Minus the Ugly!

Google Chromecast Minus the Ugly!

This redesign of Google’s Chromecast Concept features a CNC-machined aluminum case with a unique heat-sink that has been chemically-etched into the underside of the case. The design also features a backlit LED power button, a glossy black cap with the “Chrome” logo, as well as a permanently attached bendable HDMI cord. The bendable cord supports the weight of the device while allowing for different port configurations. Combined with the disk-shaped case, it helps to minimize the profile of the device while in use.
