Prismatic Car

Prismatic Car

To quote designer Janina (love the name), “This car will act like a visual perfume.” Of all the descriptions for projects that I have come across, calling a vehicle ‘visual perfume’ has to be the first. However I do agree with Janina, the refractive effect of the car looks to be mesmerizing and poetic. Inspired by the prism, the car refracts and divides ‘white light’ into its DNA colors, red green and blue; to create a stunning illusion of colors. A set of wheels as flashy as this, who needs anything else on the autobahn!

A New Meaning to Seahorse

A New Meaning to Seahorse

I love the idea of exotic car brands crossing over into the uncharted territory of watercraft design, and this is one beautiful example. Inspired by the 458 Italia, the Ferrari Elegante speedboat has all the style, creative flair, passion, cutting-edge technology, and race-derived DNA that enthusiasts love about the brand with the prancing pony.

Modern Monolith

Modern Monolith

The idea behind Massimo Iosa Ghini’s Quattro Punti installation was the formation of a bond between legacy and modernity, tradition and innovation. The monolith itself is a distant but familiar fragment of ancestral typologies, but is contrasted by LED illumination that seems to materialize from inside to outside, bringing the structure to life.

Automatic Grill Light

Automatic Grill Light

This idea was born in a backyard and will leave you wondering, “why didn’t I think of that!?” – The GRILLIT light attaches to any outdoor grill to provide instant illumination to the cooking space each time the hood is opened. Simply slide and twist the barrel to direct light where needed. It’s a great “set it and forget it” solution!

BlackBerry with Windows?

BlackBerry with Windows?

How comfortable will you be with a Windows backed BlackBerry? Nothing is too radical these days and when foes become friends, the new relationship blossoms into something big and spectacular. Concept Smartphone pro Michal Bonikowski sent us his thoughts on a BlackBerry Smartphone hosting Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 platform. The design not only simplifies the BB but also makes it a more fluid interface with Windows. I like the approach but I don’t think this partnership is ever going to happen, but then, you never know!

Everyday Flash

Everyday Flash

The Apollo Flashlight is an attempt to blur the lines between a flashlight and a table lamp. Most often flashlights lead a sedentary life, forgotten in some obscure kitchen drawer. However giving it the meaningful life of a regular lamp, not only enhances its functionality but also gives it a dual purpose.

Refined Roadster

Refined Roadster

BMW X MPower concept adopts the same 5.0i v8 twin-turbocharged engine of the X6 (with some added tweaks for more power), but incorporates it into a two-seater roadster for some serious whip. Characterized by elegant bimmer styling at the mouth and a wild, sporty aesthetic at the rear,  it’s business in the front and party in the back for this bad boy.

Antisocial Chair!

Antisocial Chair!

The Booth lounge chair was designed for those times when all you need is a little darn privacy! A soft hood surrounds the seated individual to muffle sounds and keep them partially out of sight. The removable hood can also be detached for a more casual and approachable look.

Pure and Light Wheels

The Pure Light is a concept vehicle for the elite in China, especially aimed for cities like Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Hong Kong, where people can appreciate luxury. Inspired by Taoism, this 4-seater car uses superconducting magnetic levitation technology. The levitating feel and fluid form deceive you into thinking that you are gliding in space. It also uses light as a calming element and hologram technology. Simply elegant!

Digital Data Printer

Digital Data Printer

While digital technology has made it possible to share books, music, magazines and other media on super-compact devices like phones and tablets, there’s still a certain something lacking by not being able to hand over a tangible representation of what you’d like to share. Oksu is a digital data printer concept taps into this level of sharing by making it possible to instantly “print” a tangible copy of a song, article, link or file that can be physically shared between individuals. Hit the jump to see just how it works!

Avant-garde Guitar Tuning

Avant-garde Guitar Tuning

Because guitars must be tuned each time before being played, designer Hans Kim felt this should be an emotional and more interactive experience than the one offered by current digital display tuners. In his design, the interaction consists of spinning the dial on the ‘open’ end of the tuner to choose the note the user wants to tune. The tuner then wobbles left or right depending on the accuracy of the note played, with 90 degrees being perfectly in tune.

Slim n Sleek Helium

Slim n Sleek Helium

Helium ‘The Easy Phone’ is quite something! It is slim and sleek, almost like a candy bar. The main purpose behind its ideation is to provide a handy device for hardcore business folks who need a phone to call. This is the reason why there was only a front camera incorporated initially. However market diktats have forced in some key essentials like a 5 – MP rear camera and quad headphones. Have look inside….
