The Mac is Back with a Double-Dose of Glass Phone Style Design

This man cannot be stopped with the design conceptualization. Once inside this post, read about it, post about it, then click his name to explore all the other Yanko posts he’s designed his way into. Here he presents two glass phone concepts. Both have multiple uses (one can be used as a regular stand-up desk clock!) and are extremely prone to fingerprints.

Honda Reveals Hydrogen-Powered Hot Speedster

Honda Reveals Hydrogen-Powered Hot Speedster

Yesterday Honda revealed their modern shot at a hydrogen-powered vehicle. Progress on at least the green front, but look at that jet on the back! The Honda FC Sport is straight out a certain “Speed” cartoon-to-movie. V-Flow fuel cell stack and electric drivetrain from the FCX Clarity. Three seater, similar to the McLaren F1 supercar, the driver sits front and center while the two passengers sit on either side of him or her. I’ll be borrowing this tomorrow for it’s supreme race on die Autobahn.

Your Laundry, Circa 2020

Your Laundry, Circa 2020

The Re-cycle Laundry Center looks like if you booted it up it would kick into hyperdrive and send your shirts to another dimension, but the designers has assured me it is intended to just clean your clothes, and you will indeed get them back when it is finished with them.

For when Disabled Folks want to Consolidate!

For when Disabled Folks want to Consolidate!

For the disabled person, or the person who’s name is Homer Simpson, certain solutions for everyday living are lacking. In a home that has stairs and a bed (most homes have these!), the wheelchair, patient lifter, uppers, downers, go-arounders, are just not enough on their own. Mr. Christen Halter just may have a combo machine for the win.

How would you like to be able to accessorize your tree-house, (or your regular house, for that matter,) with tree-branches of light? I would like that a lot. Yes please. Wan-jin Joo, and Hyun-Joung Yoo present the Arbre, a light-up tree whose concept makes other light-up trees look like a garbage truck unloading trash at a landfill.

Update your Facebook with a Pile of Ooze

Update your Facebook with a Pile of Ooze

Sometimes you just want to sit back and interact with a gelatinous black liquid on your desk. And of course, when you do, you want it to update your Facebook. Yes. That is what this goo does. It gets you more friends on social networks, and places yet another barrier between you and other real people.

Embracing the New Age with Tablechair!

Embracing the New Age with Tablechair!

I am not called “Tablechair,” silly human. I am Polyether foam, leather, and European Oak. With these elements combined, I am the SwiTCh! Yes, I am both a table and a chair. I am two bits of pure Belgian craftspersonship and I come in some beautiful assortment of colors. Look to me for your entire living room collection. …Unless of course you want a couch; I am not a couch quite yet.

A Vase of Bass for your Face

A Vase of Bass for your Face

So, we’ve seen our share of headphones. Headphones have been neat for decades, and personal usage of them, day-to-day street wear-wise, has seen a resurgence in recent years due in no small part to the personal MP3 player. It should come as no surprise then that after their first minimalistic, Apple phase, they flower into a new age of aesthetic excess. Presenting the Flower Vase MP3 player, with earbuds in several different beautiful flora for you to stick in your ears.

Scarab is Small, Scarab is Fast, Scarab is Hot

Scarab is Small, Scarab is Fast, Scarab is Hot

Think hand-held pocket bikes! Mini Cooper small edition! Smart Car ant size! All of these are just basically giants compared to the hot insect-style transport. It is called the Scarab. It’s got multiple driving modes: fast to slow, perfect park mode, sensors, Lidar, radar, transponders, GPS, guns, knives, sharp sticks!

RainLight Won't Follow Charlie Brown Around

RainLight Won’t Follow Charlie Brown Around

In a similar vein as the Melting Light from last week, Charles Kalpakian’s RainLight re-imagines falling water as a source of light.  When prodded by observers, the neon tubes come alive and illuminate whatever sad room you’ve placed a glass rain cloud in.  I’d say it would be the perfect lamp for a good depressing book, like The Bell Jar or Flowers for Algernon.

Roofus, Man's Best Friend

Roofus, Man’s Best Friend

Shoveling snow looks like a hell of a job at the best of times, but when faced with commercial sized buildings, apparently it’s so bad it takes up to 25 men to get the job done. That’s where the humorously named “Roofus” comes in.
