More Impossibles from Mac: “Tired of Numbers”

Mac Funamizu names his newest project a little too well, calling the desktop hygrometer and thermometer “Tired of Numbers.” Yanko Design is, incase you were unaware, primarily a blog about design concepts. Project after project, time after time, Mac Funamizu defines the Yanko motto: “Form Beyond Function.” And I mean that in as positive a manner as possible! These objects are pretty self-explainitory, with the exception o…

Don’t Die Mac Mini Don’t Die!

…mormill is full of reports about Apple supposedly killing off the Mac Mini due to lackluster sales. Earlier last week, those rumors were confounded by new rumors about Apple only updating the Mac Mini which explains why the old model can’t be found in stock. Whatever the truth may be, that didn’t stop designers like Mac Funamizu from dreaming up a new Mac Mini, more inline with Apple’s current offerings. Designer: Mac Funamizu…

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

…iple uses (one can be used as a regular stand-up desk clock!) and are extremely prone to fingerprints. Designer Mac Funamizu for the render-win: [The previous mobile phone concept] seems popular, so I made a few more designs with double glassy layers. Your fingerprints would have to be cleaned off so often, but I want to have one like these. These would definitely need protective cases to make it through a day in my pocket, or any other regular h…

More Vacuous Crap From ole’ Mac

As Yanko regulars might notice, we post a lot of concepts from Mac Funamizu, but I’m putting my foot down and stopping the love fest here and now. This flexible OLED monitor concept which supposes the OLED material would roll up inside the white stand and allow the user to choose the optimum screen size. Supposing that the material could compact itself that tightly, he goes on and mounts a cd drive behind the translucent screen and for goo…

Three Dimensional Wrist Communicator

…the “smart phones” we have today. On it there’s a ball that works as a color-changing control device that can slide anywhere on the surface, acting also as sort of a mouse cursor if you know what I mean. And of course the whole thing projects in 3D hologram mode. Help me, Obi-Wan Funamizu, you’re my only hope! Love that Star Wars pic, Mac.

The New Clarity

…like modern “smartphone” screens already do. This phone has the same ability to project 3D holograms from a 2D surface that at least one Mac design has had in the past. NOTE: Cool beans! The phone, Mac informs us, is going to be on a Russian TV show that happened upon his designs through his website. I hope we can feature that feature right freaking here soon!

Floater cell phone by Mac Funamizu

This Floater’s for the Eye

…with your eye as you move your glazzies about! This is sort of like that, only it’s a cellphone. Designer Mac Funamizu totaled the amount of time he’s got his cellphone sitting on his desk for all to see to be 80% of his day. Lots of time for aesthetic beauty and interactive loveliness. This phone aims to please. Focusing on the time the phone isn’t living in a pocket or helping a head communicate only adds up to 20% of Funamizu…

Fold Your Phone Like Never Before!

With “WILD FOLD.” Yes, it is the Mac Attack. Who else would go so wild? I ask you that. Here Mac Funamizu takes the idea of the Samsung Flexible OLED and applies it to several conceptual phones. How small is too small? Certainly we’ve tested the limits with certain fruit-related-mp3-players of late, correct? And how much fold is really necessary? With Mac, we will always know how far is too far! Peek at the several concepts bel…
