Micro Messenger

We’ve come a long way from hand written letters & our interpersonal communication just keeps getting more micro… we don’t just send instant text messages; we even use shortened text speak to cut to the chase. With TeleSound you can avoid the reading/typing altogether! The cute 1960s telephone-inspired speaker connects wirelessly to a smartphone or tablet & plays more than 1000 distinct sounds to express without words. Now you can create your own language with friends!

Sneak a feel at the time...

Sneak a feel at the time…

We’ve all been in situations where we’d like to check the time, but avoid doing so because others might consider it rude. With the ultra-minimalist touch watch it’s possible to read the time both visually and tactilely so you can check it any time without being obvious! Simply press a button to trigger the hands to move to the correct time and feel for the small and large hands.

Levitating Mouse

Levitating Mouse

Although currently in its testing stage and researching the market, I’d love to jump the gun and get my hands on the BAT – Levitating Wireless Computer Mouse. The story behind its development is the obvious culprit – Carpal tunnel syndrome; but I’d much rather get it for its awesomeness. The concept consists of a base (mouse pad) and floating mouse with magnet ring. I think it looks very cool and will definitely be a hit with my ilk.

Customizing The Camera Options

Customizing The Camera Options

Equinox brings to life a new way of customizing cameras. Until now, different CCD parts were used repeatedly, every time we bought different cameras. With the EQUINOX we have a square Corepart with CCD and a lens mount. This aspect allows you can change parts on your own, transforming your gadget from a small compact to Professional high-end camera.

Collaborate... or Don't!

Collaborate… or Don’t!

Designer Seth Moczydlowski had students in mind when designing the Synthesis Collaborative Desk, but there is serious potential here for creative agencies and design firms to want this in their office. Each desk stands alone or fits snugly in a group of 5 when it’s time for group work. The blend of wood and vibrant colors create an interesting visual contrast that also defines individual space when working together. Stackable, durable, and lightweight, they’re a great solution in any creative environment.

Superfy Your Senses

Superfy Your Senses

Introducing… the future! The Eidos concept consists of two experimental products that let you fine-tune your sight and hearing to experience visuals and sound like never before. Essentially, the devices enhance what our bodies already do and the applications are endless – athletes can use it to hone in on their physical technique, musicians can perfect their sound, or spectators can view live performances like ballet with previously invisible/inaudible details. Incroyable!

Render Fast, Easy And Amazing With KeyShot 4 – Try It FREE!

Designers, you have my immense respect for your talents in rendering your ideas. This is one area that I fall short and therefore happy to learn that the KeyShot 4 doesn’t require any specialized expertise. The program has 6 main buttons rather than hundreds of parameters, options, sliders, and adjustments found in traditional rendering programs. It is the perfect tool for anyone involved with 3D data: industrial designers, mechanical engineers, marketing professionals, photographers, CG experts – you name it. The only limitation is our creativity!

The iWatch Wet Dream

The iWatch Wet Dream

While some of my friends argue that an iWatch would be a failure, the success of TikTok and LunaTik go to prove that wearable gadgets on the wrist are more than welcome. Keeping this in mind, designer Tolga Tuncer capitalizes on the iWave with his version of the iWatch concept.

Flipper-inspired Speed Boat

Flipper-inspired Speed Boat

Throughout history humans have looked to dolphins with awe, envy & inspiration because of the animal’s speed & strength in the oceans. In this stunning example of biomimicry, the Delfino sonic boat merges inspirations from both dolphins & Japanese trains to create a bullet-fast yet super-efficient watercraft. The “fusiform” shape is rounded at the front and slowly tapers at the tail, allowing water to flow inseparably from the front to the back. Besides the technical advantages, the aesthetic is just amazing.

A Green Solution for City Self Sufficiency

A Green Solution for City Self Sufficiency

Set in the distant future, this large-scale urban farming concept called Greenbelt aims to provide cities with a way to utilize their own resourcefulness rather than depend on costly imported goods. The Greenbelt actually surrounds the city, using vertical, space-saving structures to support aquapronics (fish farming combined with soil free growing). Water is led to a hydroponic system where by-products from the fish are filtered out by plants as vital nutrients. Cleansed water is then recirculated back to the fish and the process continues.

Designed with such minimal style, the Minimato table deserves an equally minimal explanation: 5 bars, 1 table top. We love it. Nuff said!
