If it's on your phone, it's on your wrist.

If it’s on your phone, it’s on your wrist.

I remember being a kid and watching the original Power Rangers talk into their wrist watch to communicate and do all sorts of cool stuff. That was 20 years ago, making me kinda old and whoever thought of that really smart, because 2014 is the dawn of the smartwatch! Jumping on the smartwatch wagon is the Braun S concept- it packs power in the form of notifications, fitness monitoring, calling assist, messaging, music and more.

Apple, Eat Your Heart Out

Apple, Eat Your Heart Out

The iPro was designed for professionals who need a lot of everything, be it memory, workspace or processing power! If a Mac Pro and iMac had a super-baby it would be the iPro. The best of both worlds with its retina cinema display and careful balance between performance and design. It’s an all-in-one enclosed solution that can still be upgraded or downgraded easily. WARNING: Only hit the jump if you NEVER want to look at your current Apple the same again.

HUD for Performance Sailors

HUD for Performance Sailors

When it comes to sailboat racing, the difference between winning & losing is the ability to adapt a carefully orchestrated plan to the ever-changing natural & competitive environment, faster than the competition. The key is having the right info at the right time. The Afterguard system provides this info by combining fighter style HUD with boat instrumentation data to give the best situational intelligence & performance metrics at a glance, on a small display mounted on sunglasses made for the harshest of environments.

Phablet – Tablet = Phone

Phablet – Tablet = Phone

It looks so funny when people try and talk on the Galaxy Tab (like a phone) and on the flipside we rue that the iPad can’t make calls. I love the middle path taken by the s.Max, which is a tablet with a detachable mobile phone. The clever design allows both devices to be used independently or in conjunction with each other. I love the ease with which you can get a closer look at the stage, when in a concert. Brills!

Fate is in your hands!

Fate is in your hands!

Energy efficiency is synonymous with eco-friendliness, living green, and saving the planet. Nuture is a living energy monitor that embodies this idea with a literal sense of life or death! The amount of water that the plant gets fed is entirely dependent on the cumulative energy use of the user- less when your energy use is too high, and just the right amount when it’s low. It’s a living representation of energy consumption and a symbolic reference to the consequences of overuse. Keep your plant alive and you’ll help keep the world alive!

Libratone Loop Wireless Speaker Review

Libratone Loop Wireless Speaker Review

Acoustic bliss in an orgasmic sense. That’s the best way I can describe a speaker to you since you can’t hear it. Audio is totally subjective. My review is based on three basic points – how it looks, how it sounds, and how it compares. The Libratone Loop has already won almost every major design award in our industry so it stands to reason the accolades along with the $499 price tag means a really good speaker. Hit the jump for my review!

Hewlett-Packard Once Again!

Hewlett-Packard Once Again!

It is so refreshing to find designers indulge in fantasy games that go beyond Apple and Microsoft. Not that we can do without another iPhone 6 (or was it 7) concept, it’s just the question of visualizing other another brand from the intellectual realm. Apparently Raymond RJ Wong, Lead Industrial Designer at Hewlett-Packard, asked a bunch of designers to come up with what they think about social communication, and this is what we got.

Guided Commute For Visually Challenged

Guided Commute For Visually Challenged

The ‘Station reported device’ is both a guide dog and Marvel’s ‘Dare Devil’ rolled into one wearable gadget. This concept is designed to assist visually challenged persons for a safe commute. It employs EVTSS technology to send electrical signals to a person’s brain to create 2 dimensional visuals of oncoming vehicles and possible obstacles. The multitalented device can also guide a person to the nearest bust stop, select a bus route, scan the buses with its inbuilt camera and alert the wearer when the right bus comes.
