The iPhone 6 – Ahhhh!

The iPhone 6 – Ahhhh!

Here it is, another sweet iPhone 6 concept. Interestingly by pushing the display to the edge, a 4.8″ display has been fashioned. I prefer this bling touch to the minimal one that is seen in the iPhone 5s. What do you guys think? Aye or Nay?

College Ruled Genius – Part 2

College Ruled Genius – Part 2

The Laser Cap is a good attempt at innovation; it basically involves a laser fitted cap that beams out the ruled lines seen on a sheet of paper. Why do we need this innovation? Perhaps to reduce the effects of inking the paper, improving our handwriting and making the text look neat. The only other reason that I can think of is a bit of clever fun, that acts as an inspiration for some bigger innovation.

The Evenflo Story With solidThinking Inspire

The Evenflo Story With solidThinking Inspire

To talk the talk is easy, but to walk the talk is a different ball game. What I mean is that most software companies simply leverage big words to deliver their speech but little else to validate their claims. However with solidThinking you are assured that they deliver what the promise. For example, with the solidThinking Inspire, they promise to offer a common visual language for engineering and ID. This is what infant equipment manufacturer Evenflo have to say….

Remembering Fukushima

Remembering Fukushima

The Unusual Chair by Japanese design firm h220430 is an expression of the current state of fragility the region is experiencing due to the Fukushima nuclear disaster. Though it has been 2 years since the disaster & things appear to be normal, the reality of the condition is far from it. The chair aims to reflect this abnormality in its missing leg, which viewers might overlook without closer examination. It’s a subtle & thoughtful reminder that the existence of danger is ever present despite our attempts to ignore it.

The Inflatable Hanger

The Inflatable Hanger

Not as crazy as it sounds! There have been plenty of proposed solutions for replacing the wire clothes hanger, and like the others, the Tango hanger focuses on saving the neckline of shirts… but in an entirely innovative and unique way! The design focuses on the use of a tube and pump system. Place the deflated tube into the shirt and squeeze the pump at the top to start inflating. When you’re ready to wear a shirt, simply release the air and take the shirt!

Prismatic Light Sculptures

Prismatic Light Sculptures

As you might guess from the name, the Prisma lamp series takes inspiration from the multifaceted quality of optical prisms. The sculptural series consisting of a pendant, wall, and floor lamp, in stark white or jet black. Like the headlight of a car, the light is amplified by mirrored surfaces inside the shade. By adjusting these planes, the reflected light can be directed in any direction the user desires.

Bling Is In

There are some ideas that deserve nothing but an applause and silent appreciation. A moment like when you saw the red MacPro that Jony Ive dished, and then in the same breath this MacPro Bling Bling Concept.

Mouthwatering Maserati

Mouthwatering Maserati

Maserati is the quintessential Italian sports tourer legend, so trying to perfect what many believe is perfection seems like a daunting task. But that’s precisely what Alexander Imnadze seems to have done with his stab at the trident brand: the Bora. It’s forward thinking for today’s Maserati, but a realistic, if not recommended, step in the right direction for their future design language. We’re only getting a taste of the exterior here, but we already like it more than the GranTurismo!
