The Hexicopter

The Hexicopter

Designed for disaster rescue and other squad-based missions, the Hatchet unmanned copter concept utilizes not one, not 2, not 3… but a 6 rotor design that gives it superior maneuverability and mid/low altitude stability beyond that of ordinary helicopters. Modular components can be interchanged for different missions so it’s capable of both surveying areas for preliminary reconnaissance and performing rescues or even fire extinguishments, making it a versatile tool for a variety of operations.

Mercedes Makeover

Mercedes Makeover

This award-winning project by Oliver Elst applies the theme of reduction to the aesthetics and structure of this Mercedes concept, in the process creating an entirely new material and light-weight technology. The “sandwiched” material visible throughout the vehicle would consist of 3 layers- 2 for interior and exterior protection and an inner reactive filling that is used for temperature and lighting adjustment. The resulting aesthetic is an organic skin-like shell synthesized into a classic metal framework.

The Night Gestures

The Night Gestures

The Night Communication is a solar empowered, LED silicone glove concept that allows people to communicate with gestures even in pitch darkness. Imagine yourself trekking in the woods and there is a considerable distance between you and the others in your party. In situations like this, using common gesture like how we use in scuba diving can help in communicating over the long distance.

When it Couldn't Get Easier...

When it Couldn’t Get Easier…

Especially compared to digital clocks, analog ones are easy enough to change when daylight savings time hits, right? WRONG- there’s always room for improvement! Proof- the Ambigu wall clock has a hanging element on the reverse side that’s very similar to standard designs but with one major difference: dual-positioned hook spaces that make it possible to easily rotate the clock one hour forward or backward in accordance with the time changes.

Everything but the TuTu

Everything but the TuTu

Who knew that with the introduction of gaming systems like Wii and XBox Kinect that the stereotype of lazy, couch-potato gamers would fade and be replaced with modern, home-fitness freaks?! This smart-app, called Pas de Ballet, is a great example of how interactive gaming systems can be used as supplemental training in a variety of sports and other physical activities. Using Kinect’s motion-sensing technology, it helps ambitious users perfect their skills even when a coach isn’t available. Check out the vid to see it in action!

What is this? Hair…maybe, but definitely not on your face! I am in a Christmassy-giving mood already, so this much hint will suffice.

YD regulars, you know the rules…new folks – this is just a fun game where you have to guess what the product is by looking at this preview. Details are inside. No prizes for guessing but just loads of admiration and love!

Steaming Up Foul Language

Steaming Up Foul Language

It’s almost impossible to monitor the kind of abusive and foul language kids use in online chatrooms these days. So when the analogy of difference in temperatures steaming up a window was explored, designers Kim Hyerim, Chang Hanearl & Kim Junhoe came up with the Steamy Window application. The system basically auto-detects abusive and foul language used during chats and steams up the user’s display window.
