Yet Another iPhone 6

Yet Another iPhone 6

One of the reasons why many people buy a fender for their iPhone is that the back surface tends to scratch pretty easily, especially in the iPhone 5. Designer Matt Hughson envisions the iPhone 6 to come designed with an integrated aluminum outer frame, which creates a protective lip for the front & back of the phone. This provides improved protection for your screen & camera.

Future Of Mobile Computing

Future Of Mobile Computing

This project is called ‘The Future Of Mobile Computing’ and it is the conceptual exploration of potential applications of future flexible technology. To streamline the future of flexible computing we have to reconsider some of the current technology and manufacturing techniques.

Braille Book Everything

Braille Book Everything

Imagine a world where the sight impaired can read almost any publication without it being specially printed in Braille. It will not only save the cost of a specialized printing but also make a lot more reading material accessible to the blind. The Blind Reader is a device that looks like a smartphone but functions like a text-to-Braille converter. Simply skim it over the paper publication and the surface transforms to Braille that can be easily read. Simple, effective and portable!

The Color Of Music

The Color Of Music

The Serendipity Emotion Player is not your regular shuffle that plays music by genre or albums. It takes into account your emotional status by interpreting the color that your subconscious mind chooses and then plays songs accordingly. The player is equipped with a camera and the user is supposed to point it towards a colored object, for example if my mind takes fancy to the apple and I point the player towards it; the device interprets my mood based on the color therapy practice and plays songs accordingly.

Bell Sound

Bell Sound

The Bell Sound speakers are an unconventional twist on home audio that are composed of super-strong parallam, an engineered wood material most often used in the construction industry. To contrast the natural wood tone, each speaker rests on a hand-turned aluminum base. Though modern in material, the elongated, exaggerated bell shape hints to the design’s original inspiration- the gramophone.
