Unity Between Phone and Tablet

iTransPhone is an Apple-style twist on phone & tablet combo that features an innovative cover/grip that keeps the phone in place, connected to the tablet by an embedded cable. Users can operate the tablet by grasping the ergonomic grip instead of the frame. Simply fold the phone grip component over to tuck the ultra thin tablet into any handbag.

Ringing The Images

Ringing The Images

The CAMER-ing is a discreet digital camera that is designed as a ring. It works in sync with a tablet-esque platform that allows you to sift through what you have captured. The basic idea is to let you capture images on the go without the hassle of the bulk. Also, some radical snapshots can be taken when pictured from the index-finger level! What fun!

Cook n’ Charge!

The EcoCharge system is a portable and green solution for giving your devices a quick boost by recycling heat energy. Using thermoelectric generator modules, the unit converts heat generated from cookware, home-heaters or any other source into usable electricity.

Equipped with an OLED display, it also monitors the conduction efficiency of different surfaces so the user knows always knows what kind of charge they’re getting.

Significantly Fresher Air

Significantly Fresher Air

The Aeroball is a great way to filter air and get rid of odors. Tiny bubble-like balls hover and float in the air, cleansing it of impurities and offensive smells. The scented varieties dispense fragrance and enhance the mood. Inspired by fireflies and nature, the balls absorb light during the day and radiate it at night. Very akin to glowlights!

How Big Is Your Printer?

How Big Is Your Printer?

God forbid if you are the unlucky bloke who gets to sit on a table that houses the office printer. They are a blessing and a bane, simply because they occupy so much of space. Maybe this is why concepts like the Retractable Printer are much more appealing. Imagine a sleek device that spans out according to the size of paper you are printing. Simple thought for a practical way of working in an office! Super!

The Fly Phone

FlyIdea is an amazing phone that features an alluring interface. I simply love the dongle-earphone that performs a myriad of functions. The dongle essential functions as wireless earphone, and syncs with the phone to work as a camera, gaming sensor, music controller and video recorder. Both the earphone and phone work independently and together. The concept offers an innovative way of using the phone with the added functionality of the earphones dongle.

Pictures From The Sky

Pictures From The Sky

The idea of aerial photography is not new, but the idea of the Sky View Camera certainly is. I love the cosmic beauty in design, almost like a star or whimsical flower. Details are sketchy, but we do know that it can take pics from mid-air and when placed on a surface. People are fascinated with pictures of them from above, so one of these days the concept will see light. Whether it is as enigmatic as the Sky View, remains to be seen.

A Very James Bond Jacket

A Very James Bond Jacket

Have you ever ruined a movie, an interview, or maybe even a sexy date because you forgot to turn your phone off? If so, then you’ll appreciate this clever design called the Escape Jacket by Victor Johansson! The inner lining applies the interference principles of a Faradays cage to effectively block all radio frequencies, disabling the antenna so the phone doesn’t go off while simultaneously saving the battery. Just slide it in the inner pocket and fuggeddaboudit!
