The Whole Picture

The Whole Picture

How about a camera that splits into two and allows you to take a picture of your subject and yourself! The DUO is just this concept and I think it’s pretty clever. It features a separable camera with synchronized triggers so that you get to take the perfect picture. Essentially the photographer is the subject too!

Simply The iPhone 5S

Simply The iPhone 5S

Back curve, totally flat, a slight curve…three different forms have been explored; so what can we expect from Jony Ive and his band of designers? Don’t know! What we do know that this concept iPhone 5S is pretty awesome and catchy! Good enough to whet our appetite for more.

What do you think?

New Meaning To Face Recognition

New Meaning To Face Recognition

The convinece of face recognition is evident in photography and social sites where people are automatically tagged. Extending this concept to telephones, the Elderly E Phone uses image recognition rather than a keypad for the entering of phone numbers. It is aimed at the silver generation, who have a hard time dialing or remembering numbers.

Timbre Timber

Timbre Timber

Timbre, by Casey Lin, trims the essence of the speaker down to the bare minimum, allowing the inherent qualities of the materials to become the focal point of the design. With superfluous elements stripped away, all that remain visible are glass and wood, chosen for their enhanced acoustic qualities. Placing different objects on the raw wood block instantly changes the sound, encouraging user interaction and a deeper connection to the object. Jump to the video to hear how it works!

Lil'bitty Light Sensor

Lil’bitty Light Sensor

Access to a good light meter can make or a break a photo, but the designs are often bulky, archaic in user-friendliness, and expensive. The Lumu light meter is reduced to the size of the round sensor, eliminating the need for a separate handheld device. Instead, it works with your smartphone using a dedicated app for taking luminance measurements with a spectral response sensor that works like the human eye. Why not, since you already have your phone with you?!

Earphones With A Play

Earphones With A Play

The Freestyler earphone incorporates a very fun element to their design. A part of this earphone is made out of special coated wire that can be easily twisted and turned into a shape. This means you can easily store them or wear them in-ear. The special wire in the middle is for clipping to the collar or the pocket. You can bend it to really cool shapes! Kawaii!
