Cell Phone Recycled To Better Things

Cell Phone Recycled To Better Things

Before you discard your old cell phone, think of the possibility of it lighting up a child’s life. Allow me to explain, data suggests that millions of phones are discard globally but very few make it to the recycle bin. If we take a fraction of these discarded phones and convert them into a low-cost camera for the under-privileged, then we can encourage a new breed of trigger-happy kids.

The New iWatch With iOS 7 And No Siri

The New iWatch With iOS 7 And No Siri

Being practical is the main reason behind shunning Siri, speakers and mobile connectivity in this new iWatch concept. As a typical SmartWatch, this concept hosts some very non-typical features. For example, to save on battery consumption, the design includes solar energy and wireless recharging. Siri and cellular connectivity are not included because of their power draining capabilities.

Vespa Now Takes Pictures

Vespa Now Takes Pictures

There are too many “what if” questions in life and one of them is, what if Vespa came out with consumer good? The answer according to designers Rotimi Solola & Cait Miklasz, is the delightful Vespa Camera Concept. i love the Vespa design cues and the wonderful outcome. The translation of one typology to another is simply amazing. Kudos!

Articulate Beats

Articulate Beats

I completely connect with the Le Pen concept, where the designer has tried to marry a pen with a music player. I still recollect those glory days when I used to solve math equations to the beats of U2 and Police. Somehow music helped me zone in and focus on those numbers. I’m sure many of you like to work with something strumming in the background, Le Pen takes an innovative approach towards that.

Classic Radio

Classic Radio

There seems to be an upswing towards everything old, retro and classic and this Classic Radio fits that bill. It hosts the design cues of the old including the mechanical sensibilities and operations. It’s the prefect marriage of digital with analog, what do you think?

Starry Starry Night

Starry Starry Night

The designer describes the Bang and Olufsen’s A9 Wireless Speaker Concept as the “binary transitional relationship in musical experience”. In lay terms it just means a new way of relaxing with music. The speakers need not be imposing design disasters, but an object that is sublime and adds a third dimension to its creativity. The transition of opaqueness to transparency is achieved by using gradient printed polycarbonate legs. It certainly looks dashing!

Do you like tablets? Do you like pens? Are you a tablet owner who likes pens? This is the product for you. The practical ballpoint pen here is also capable of making precise pixels and smooth navigation with its dual stylus tip. At the drawing board, you can transition from pen to silicon stylus or precision stylus in the blink of an eye. Made from lightweight aircraft-grade aluminum and with its shock absorbing tip, it’s the most ergonomic and easy-to-use dual purpose stylus…. period.

The iPhone Saga – More Real Estate

The iPhone Saga – More Real Estate

So, the story continues….we have another brilliant iPhone 6 concept that features a flat screen with 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch display options. The resolution of screen allows the icons reorganization on the springboard. I think it looks very fulfilling to have a screen that spills over the edges.
