Nokia Love

Nokia Love

The Nokia Note is a concept phone that integrates a music player within its body. Just like a mamma roo and her joey, the Windows Phone 8 phablet sports cool specs like measuring 5.5 inches diagonal and a 1280 x 768 pixel resolution with 1080p. An integrated stylus and the detachable Nokia music player on the back, give it the added edge. Looks like there are still some Nokia fans out there who want to give the device another chance.

iWatch

iWatch

iKnow, we all waiting in anticipation for something spectacular to come forth and the iWatch rumors are pretty strong. So if we were to indulge in fantasy for a minute, then this is how Esben Oxholm thinks the Apple team would design the phone/watch. Heavily inspired by the look of the iPhone 5 and sporting a minimalistic, sleek look, the watch is crafted with black aluminum on the outside and a thin layer of soft matte rubber on the inside.

U-Plug

U-Plug

The U-Plug aims to enhance the functionality of the electrical plug by reducing the overall number of parts while maintaining safety and ease of use. Besides flexing to fit a variety of outlets, the universally adaptable design also doubles as a socket for another like-plug and provides a safer, tactile grip that can be unplugged with a single finger. Less parts means it’s also cheaper to produce and replace!

For The Love Of Drumming

For The Love Of Drumming

Ever caught yourself doing the air-drums in the middle of a song? Van Halen and WWRY get me to do that all the time. Well, the option of using a portable instrument like the Y-Drum is a good one, especially when it works out good for beginners. It is a mobile, accessible and easy to use; making the percussion practice even more fun.

The Exact Cellphone

The Exact Cellphone

Imagine using a smartphone that sports a bare minimum design and yet is functional enough to pass off as the latest high-tech device. The Sustainable Smartphone is just that; it uses fewer materials and its lifespan exceeds that of existing smart phones. It is a basic communication device and caters to the needs of those who are prone to the elements, have special needs, and impoverished people.

The Hybrid Laptop

The Hybrid Laptop

This is the age of being multifunctional, hence a concept like the Paysage Laptop sound pretty acceptable. Here is a 14.1-inch laptop that features an inductive stand for the home. It looks super sexy in its brushed aluminum unibody design. A soft rubber hinge reinforced with a piece of metal inside gives it a maximum opening of 180°.

Wally, The iPhone Wallet Case

Wally, The iPhone Wallet Case

It’s sexy, sleek and totally incognito with your credit cards. Wally isn’t yet another wallet case, but rather a handcrafted leather pocket that grabs onto the back of your iPhone to secretly and securely hold what you need to have close at hand. Instead of a bulky case or a wallet with a pocket for your iPhone, Wally clings to the back of your iPhone utilizing micro-suction instead of a glue or magnets, Wally has a grip like a gentleman: strong and secure, without leaving behind any tackiness.

Floored By The ICONE

The ICONE is an amplified speaker which provides 360° sound. Wireless technologies and Smartphone Apps integration (even tablet and computers) makes it the perfect listening companion for music lovers. It’s not portable but it works well as a multiroom system. Sounds good!

Laptop Or PC, You Decide

Laptop Or PC, You Decide

PANDORA is a flexible laptop PC for the next generation. Through its flexible display and proper application of various technologies, this laptop PC can be applied to a number of interfaces smoothly. A shade less thicker than typical tablets, the device boasts of thin flexible battery technologies as well. A good hybrid concept for gen-next I love the new form and approach towards the design.

The Portable Soyuz Sound

The Portable Soyuz Sound

SOYUS is a light portable iPhone dock that promises well-balanced, rich and powerful sound. The system comes with a sub-woofer and two speakers and it tanks up using a Li-pol battery to keep music blasting for a long time. I love the way the designer has used a structured aluminum frame to give it a sturdy look.

Scanning Eraser

Scanning Eraser

Seems like déjà vu but the concept of marrying an eraser with a scanner is a very good one. The ES-X not only erases the whiteboard but also transmits the scanned content to a laptop. It can also post selected portion to Facebook (and hopefully other social mediums), but the point is to make it easy for students to take notes. I am all for devices that make school life easier, what do you say?

Soft as Puddin'

Soft as Puddin’

In a world full of rigid, ultra-thin cases, the iPooding case stands out as a squishy, playful alternative for those in touch with their softer side. For enhanced ergonomics and shock absorbance, the clear urethane case is filled with harmless liquid paraffin. For a little flair, each colorful case is filled with floating dots that whirl around like a snow-globe. Ain’t it cute?!

My Next iPad

My Next iPad

So the rumor mills are grinding out many new stories about a new iPhone and iPad; however none of them are impressive enough. Basically Apple has toted with shape and size more than anything else for the two devices. Designer Ricardo Luis Monteiro Afonso (love the name!) has his own vision for the tablet. It’s sleek, its sexy and its transparent! Now that’s something different right!
