The Computer Phone Is Here

The Computer Phone Is Here

What I like about the TPM VIPNI Concept P.C.P. Professional Computer Phone is that the concept is not ‘inspired’ by any existing design. Moreover it features components and aspects that are envisioned with existing and available technologies. Essentially this means you can build this powerhouse of a Pocket Computer Phone, right away!

Music In My Control

Music In My Control

The MusixCube is a hand-held controlling device for a given piece of digital music production software. It is meant for stuff like Ableton Live, Logic, etc. and combines several hardware items, like drum computers and other MIDI controllers. The aim of the project is to keep the music creators away from the computer and literally give them controls in their hands. Interaction between the device and music creating apps is based on the Rubik’s Tower.

Fine Line Displayed

Fine Line Displayed

The M-Phone is a unique concept where the display real estate that can give the iPhone 5 a run for its money. However unlike the iPhone, there is a fine metal band that divides the display into two. The band slides up and down and depending upon the usage, it transforms one end into a keypad, gaming control or media controls. People were skeptic if a long slender display will go down well with mobile phone users. Given the way Apple is laughing all the way to the bank right now, such radical and elegant design concepts are the next step in evolution.

Five Reasons To Flash A Smile

Five Reasons To Flash A Smile

A camera is best described as a device that records images that can be stored directly and transmitted to another location, or both. We have seen it evolve through the years in both technology and in design. This brings to mind the question, what is the future of a camera in say about five to ten years from now. Will it be minimal or elaborate? One thing is for sure, the cameras of the future will be high on technology but their designing may get radically unconventional.

Handsfree Cooking!

Handsfree Cooking!

The Easystir is an automatic stirrer that allows you to pursue other work while it diligently looks after your dish. Foods like soups, broths and curries require constant stirring and I know for a fact that with some Indian cooking you need to keep on stirring for hours; yes HOURS! The stirring speed is adjustable, it is dishwasher safe and it doesn’t require recharging, battery replacements or plugging at all. It simply uses magnets that react to your induction stove!

Vid after the jump will show you how it works!

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!

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. A flexible magnetic face attaches to any metal surface so the device can be used almost anywhere. 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!
