Dirty Linen Goes Straight To The Closet!

Dirty Linen Goes Straight To The Closet!

The notion of dumping laundry in a basket and then taking it out on laundry-day will probably be redundant in the future. All you will need to do is hang your clothes in a specialized closet and await molecular technology to do its thing. The Clean Closet is your laundry basket, washing machine and drying cabinet – all rolled into one. Using its tech, it scans clothes for stains etc and removes it, freshens it (de-odorizes), and that too without using water.

Bio Robot Refrigerator

Bio Robot Refrigerator

As promised, here are the details on the Electrolux Bio Robot Refrigerator, a concept that has been making quite a splash in the blogosphere! In lay terms, the fridge is a concept where the Bio Robot cools biopolymer gel through luminescence. A non-sticky gel surrounds the food item when shoved into the biopolymer gel, creating separate pods. The design features no doors or drawers, and the food items are individually cooled at their optimal temperature thanks to the robot.

DIY Player

DIY Player

Simply called the DIY Player, this device is quite intriguing. The concept is simple, we as humans lust for a lot of shiny gadgets and hunger for innovation. DIY Player combines our greed for Cell phones, PMPs, gaming consoles and other such gadgets into one. It comes with a base screen and has detachable modules to it. Hook up the keypad to make it a phone or swap it for the gaming controls. Awesome idea, neat renders and a whole lot of imagination going on here!

Caution! Not Slippery When Singing!

Caution! Not Slippery When Singing!

Come weekends and street bands are out in full force, trying to impress and maybe cajole a Dollar or two out of you. Besides carrying an array of equipments, have you noticed how they try and add a zing to their show with wee bit of histrionics? The Look! Speakers can add the zing without much fuss, naturally you’re going to notice the caution-sign, but only this time, it will be hooked up to the mike / instrument of a performer! Awesome!

Flat And Folding

Flat And Folding

The Flexible Speaker for the iPhone is quite a departure from conventional speaker styles. More like a pretty hanging charm on the phone, this device makes use of “Flat Flexible Laminated, (FFT) Loudspeaker technology” to its advantage. Read: paper-thin & foldable. The folding aspect is relevant; coz with each un-fold of the connecting speaker, the volume goes up. Charming!

Your Liquid Email Box

Your Liquid Email Box

I was going to nickname this something along the lines of Flowmaster but then I realized that was sort of… inappropriate if you know what I mean. What this project IS titled is “Go with The Flow.” What it does is control the amount of email communication you get via a real-world water container and valve system. Depending on the amount of communication you wish to receive from any group of sources, you loosen the valve accordingly. Keep them spam mails all corked up!

Robot Cyclops is Friendly

Robot Cyclops is Friendly

Meet Myon, a humanoid robot created by Studio Frackenpohl Poulheim and the Neurorobotics Research Laboratory at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Myon represents years of work show casing the latest advances in artificial intelligence and motor skills. Even the shell exudes high-tech awesomeness with its thermoformed properties. We first heard about Myon at the DMY International Design Festival Berlin and suddenly got nostalgic about the now defunct Sony QRIO. They could have been friends y’all!

Waste No Waste; They Are A Treat For Plants!

Waste No Waste; They Are A Treat For Plants!

If we talk about the future of dining (everyday home meals), it’s quite alright to assume ready-to-eat steaks and pot roast being available in capsules. Compact food meaning easier to cook and clean-up and this is where the Electrolux Eco Cleaner, a portable, compact dishwasher comes in play. Using ultrasonic waves to ionize food particles on the dishes, this dishwasher converts the food/grease to reusable compost for plants. Thereby waste will no longer be waste, but healthy meals for the greens. Squeaky Clean dishes, just a by-product!

Read Really Fat Books In A Jiffy

Read Really Fat Books In A Jiffy

The real reason for the Help Readers device is to help the silver generation, who is fond of reading, cope with weak eyesight. The handheld scanner converts the text into audio and is of a convenient size to facilitate portability. My reason to get one will be to scan through the thick fiction novels and design books that Long Tran devours for breakfast! Damn I can’t read as much as that man; I barely get past the preface of Harry Potter!

Swanky Bluetooth With A Dash Of Convenience

Swanky Bluetooth With A Dash Of Convenience

If I had to point out the one really good feature in the Aliph Solo Bluetooth Headset, it would be the fact that it doesn’t require separate recharging. Apparently the earpiece is consolidated into the cellphone and charges auto when you hook up your mobile phone for juice. Now plenty of us folks have charging-chores: laptops, phones, MP3 players…get the drift? So one less item to tank up, is a blessing!

Want A 3D Mobile Phone?

With Samsung and company outing 3D televisions for home viewers and China loving 3D newspapers, it’s not too farfetched to picture the technology being used in laptops and mobile phones. Focusing on the use of 3D in cellphones, Petr Kubik has designed this all-in-one-piece that includes the glasses, intuitive stylus and expandable screens. The 3D apps support 3D movies and camera plus allow you to make surreal calls with family and friends that pop outta the screen!

Big Boat Dragovic Yacht

Big Boat Dragovic Yacht

With a name like Vuk Dragovic, one doesn’t need to go very far to find a unique name for any sort of design they’ve made and need to name. However! Dragovic does also happen to be a world-class name-creator too, so the concept you’re about to look at goes by the name “Atreides Yacht” and lives up to the elegance of the letters that title it. And it’s got some radical innovation on it’s side too, hooray! And not just in the greener section of things. It’s got a fully extendable shallow pool that shoots out the back.
