Taking the Tech Out of Technology

Taking the Tech Out of Technology

In contrast to the current trend of high resolution imaging, the Ambient Display project relies on the quality of fuzziness! This effect is created through the combination of an ALUCOBOND media LED matrix with a Bencore aluminum honeycomb structure. With just 1000 large pixels, it bridges the digital and analog worlds. Less detailed and more subtle, the result is an artistic visual experience with a variety of application opportunities. Hit the jump to see how the designers put it to use!

The Bend is Back

The Bend is Back

Only, it’s the other way! First it was bubbles, then flat, & now curved screens like the Secret Illusion V.2. Aesthetically, this particular design is architecturally-inspired for a better blend to interiors with its subtle bend & less obtrusive, near seamless base. Experientially, it offers an enhanced audio/visual experience that aims to replicate the way our rounded eyes naturally view the world around us with peripheral vision. This includes greater edge sharpness, a wider field of view & increased depth for a truly immersive home entertainment experience.

I do it a lot during the complex Yoga postures or when noting a recipe from a cook show. With Skyworth_Memory Share, you simply hit the print button and it screen capture of the program gets printed.

Look Carefully; It’s a Transparent TV!

Look Carefully; It’s a Transparent TV!

Ask yourself, “what’s the next step in television innovation?” The answer is transparency – an invisible flatscreen that blends into the home environment when not in use, much like the Loewe Invisio. This magnificent TV is not a big black blot in standby mode, like how all television sets are. It’s a clear, frameless glass surface that keeps the room in its “visually unaltered” state.

Entertain Yourself: Sony BRAVIA NX800 3D HDTV

Entertain Yourself: Sony BRAVIA NX800 3D HDTV

In this first of a three-part series called “Entertain Yourself”, I’m going to put together a quick and dirty home entertainment center out of three products I’ve reviewed earlier this year. Mind you, this won’t please the hardcore video or audiophile. I wanted products that seamlessly balance industrial design with home entertainment and as designers, we all know that’s how the general consumer perceives products. I call it utilitarian sex and first up is the stunning BRAVIA NX800 HDTV from Sony.
