The Power of YOU

The Power of YOU

This clever gadget, called Activ, makes it possible to harness the kinetic energy created by your own body! The personal electricity generator was designed to be worn on the knee- with each step, it juices up the battery a little more. After it’s full, just attach a USB cord directly to Activ to power your cell phone or other device. Instead of plugging into the wall… plug into you!

The Mini-est Car Yet

The Mini-est Car Yet

For those who like flyin’ solo, the Peugeot Mini Car is the super-sub-compact to have. No longer and only slightly wider than a motorcycle, the Peugeot is characterized by a robust, animal-like stance and futuristic, Tron-styling. The driver can access the cockpit from either side or the front, depending on preference. Once inside, the driver has an almost complete view of the vehicle’s surroundings thanks to extensive glass on the top, front, and sides.

Nokia Lumia 999

Nokia Lumia 999

Apple Concepts are getting to repetitive these days so its great to see some Nokia indulgence. What we have here is the Nokia Lumia 999 Concept and it features a 4.3″ screen. Details include hardware buttons are pressure sensitive (not capacitive) and you can’t push it mechanically. The use of aluminum and return to the old Lumia design line offers a more symmetrical look. What do you think?

The Guiding Light

The Guiding Light

Only if the Titanic had been adequately equipped with rescue gear, many more people would have survived the sinking. The thing with disasters is that they are unpredictable and the only way to outsmart it is to be prepared. Life Guide is one such rescue equipment that takes advantage of technology to ensure safe rescues on a capsizing boat or ship.

Time Till Now

Time Till Now

Communication is the key element in watch design and the Till Watch fulfils this norm by speaking to you visually. Exemplifying the relationship between now and then, this cool time-telling machine doesn’t believe in cold numbers. For example, its not 10:50, it’s “Ten Till Ten.” If you ask me, I’d like my watch to read… ’Till death do us apart!

Construction Robo

Construction Robo

The Construction ROBO was designed to minimize human error in the construction industry while saving money & time by preventing costly mistakes & reducing the number of workers. The device uses EDM laser technology to determine where the device is located within the partially built building, then using a CAD model of the building, it paints lines on the ground where interior walls are to be placed. It also uses its laser to point to key mounting points on the ceiling for systems like fire supression & HVAC.

iPhone 5S - more @ less

iPhone 5S – more @ less

I recently read about how Tim Cook is feeling the heat about innovation from his Directors, so maybe this concept iPhone 5S will help. It proposes changing the home button to a camera, which can also act as a fingerprint scanner with a software support. What you can do is then assign your most used app a finger and just swipe it over the front camera (even when the phone is locked) and activate that app.

The Corner Lift

The Corner Lift

Clever Packaging Design is also worthy of mention on our pages and this is why I bring to you the Corner Box. The box provides a small concave space for your fingers at a bottom corner. Making it easy to grasp the box, the indent also reinforces the edges so that they don’t split open. Sweet!

Citroën Goes Holographic

Citroën Goes Holographic

Picasso didn’t use it but it’s a common technique for painters to project an image on a wall or canvas to paint it. For the launch of the new Citroën Picasso this technique is used to project a car on to a 3D shape. At the center is Holocube, a fully integrated 3D projection platform that makes your product look like never before. It combines the most advanced modern projection techniques in a contemporary sleek housing. This enables product focus as well as high-quality, contextual 3D projections.
