If a Laptop and Desktop Made Love

If a Laptop and Desktop Made Love

U.DTR stands for Ultra Desktop Replacement, and that’s exactly what it aims to do… remove the shortcomings of both laptops and desktops to form one ultra-versatile replacement device. The most obvious improvement is the “necked” touch-screen that elevates the monitor to a more comfortable height, similar to that of a desktop computer. Did we mention it’s touch-screen?! Other extras include an angled, more ergonomic keyboard, thoughtfully placed ports, and reduced battery weight.

The Sawdust Sucker Upper

The Sawdust Sucker Upper

The average person doesn’t keep construction goggles or a shop-vac handy, so it’s likely that you know just how irritating it can be to have dust and debris flying all over the place (especially in your eyes) when you’re using a drill! This ingenious device called the Motorless Vacuum uses the drills own rotational power to move the internal fan and create suction which draws dust into the reservoir. After you’re finished drilling, just remove the peripheral and dump the sawdust!

A Hiker Must-have

A Hiker Must-have

As humans, we’re naturally inclined to think “that could never happen to me,” especially when it comes to getting lost! Despite our egos, emergency situations do happen so having the right safety equipment is key. Designed specifically for hiking, the Sound of Light whistle provides novice and expert hikers with an additional level of visible and audible protection. The super bright LED and ear-shattering whistle serve as a beacon for rescuers while a built-in compass helps hikers navigate their way out of danger.

Versatile Tablet PC

Versatile Tablet PC

A transforming Tablet PC is the best way to describe the Apollon. The device functions as a book reader sized tablet and can morph into a large 15inch 16:9 ratio screen. To make life easy, the Apollon uses dual OS. Windows OS for wide mode, which is effective at using heavy programs and watching wide resolution medias. The Android OS for the minimized experience intended for casual use like web surfing and PDF viewing.

If Google Goes Gamer

If Google Goes Gamer

If there’s one company that can create an entirely new console to go up against the big 3 (Nintendo, Xbox, and PlayStation) it’s gotta be Google. Joseph Dumary’s Nexus Orbit concept console sheds light on how exactly the device might look and behave. Aesthetically, it’s inspired by contemporary architecture, but technologically you can expect it to include integration with Google Glasses, Google Play as well as access to Google’s amazing search, maps, video, and drive features. Check out the vid for more on Orbit!

Solar Powered Laptop

Solar Powered Laptop

We see solar paneled backpacks enjoying much success, so if we push the boundaries of innovative thinking then is the solar powered laptop too much to fathom? I suppose not, the Shadow Axis Solar Powered Laptop is a keen innovation, it hopes to get the lappie charged by including a solar panel on the back cover. I am not sure about the engineering aspect about this project, but it certainly is food for thought.

We encourage you to graffiti!

Psychologists have studied vandalism for years and found that boredom, peer pressure and revenge are often the cause. But it’s often overlooked that it’s also kinda fun! Just ask Banksy! This picture frame concept, Vadalijst, allows you to insert your favorite photos and vandalize them by doodling silly things with a whiteboard marker. Mustaches, monocles, capes and more… the options are endless!

Jell Balls That Clean

The Jell Balls is a home appliance that can be used for cleaning up the floor. It basically uses the jell surface tension principle to make the eight jell surfaced balls to roll around a space and clean it. The appliance analyses an area and then disperses the balls to do their job. The balls can be used in wet areas like the bathroom and the kitchen.

Half an Elevator

Half an Elevator

Here is an enterprising concept that will not only get you where you want to be but also keep you in shape and help conserve energy. The 1/2 Lift Energy Saving Elevator is a lift that stops at half floors. For example, instead of stopping on the second floor, the elevator will stop between the second and third floor, and those who want to go to the second and third floor can get off here. Superb!

Another Nokia Phablet

Another Nokia Phablet

It’s raining Nokia concepts these day, and it only makes me happy! The good thing about this Nokia Lumia 1025 Phablet is that it is designed based on the leaks and plausible rumours. This concept features a 6 inch screen (1920 x 1152px – 15:9), is 8mm thin and with much horse power!
