09/04/2008, Isn’t the EnterBell concept just an absolute stunner? Created by Li Jianye, this doorbell takes its inspiration from one of the most famous keyboard keys ever – “Enter”. After all, it makes a really solid case with the verb printed on the doorbell itself. Too bad this is but a concept at this point in time, and it would be nice to see this hit production someday.
09/03/2008, Jitrin Jintaprecha’s iFreeze Chair design is based on an Arctic iceberg, featuring hidden lights in the arm rests that will help illuminate your home late into the wee hours of the morning. The light in the arm rests are meant to exude a sense of calmness and “coolness”, as though one were sitting atop an iceberg – minus freezing your butt off, of course. Would love to see LED lighting […]
08/29/2008, Designed by Ashley Payne, the Zune Bug is a low-power light fixture that can also stream music to guide you in the dark. Equipped with a light sensor, it turns on automatically in the dark and changes color to match the mood of the music being played. It’s a concept, do don’t ask where you can buy it.
08/26/2008, If all fire extinguishers were to look like the Shooter, I think the number of pyromaniacs in the city will rise exponentially, just for the sake of unleashing this uber-cool fire extinguisher on a raging flame. Shaped after a light-weight gun design, the Shooter comes loaded with CO2 cartridges with a laser guidance system to help you hit the target in the event of a heated emergency. An alarm button […]
08/25/2008, While Nintendo has had a long history of releasing their best selling devices in a plethora of colors (think Game Boy and DS Lite), the best selling console of this generation, the Nintendo Wii takes after Henry Ford’s philosophy – we can have it in any color as long as it is white. While Nintendo has taken a small step in providing Wiimote straps of different colors, it would be […]
08/25/2008, The Arrow Backpack you see here might be constructed from plastic, but it features the ability to collapse or expand according to your current baggage needs. Not only is it practical in such a manner, it also spares more than a passing thought for your spine by being uniquely shaped to offer adequate spine support, accompanied by large neoprene straps that help relieve weight and stress on one’s shoulders. The […]
08/19/2008, Intel has a new vision for the future, and one of them is a mobile mood ring concept that is able to recognize a person from the heartbeat, speech pattern, movements and appearance, helping keep your private information by blocking it from others who it does not recognize. This same device could see use at hotel desks int he future, where checking in will allow this mobile mood ring to […]
08/19/2008, It is amazing that even after thousands of years, we still haven’t run out of new tunes due to the nigh infinite nature of notes. Granted, there has been a fair share of songs lately that tend to sound like something from the past, but what happens when you’re a budding composer/songwriter yourself who could have stumbled upon the next catchy ditty but do not have any way to record […]
08/19/2008, Designer Iman Maghsoudi has decided to take concept cars to the next level with this new Ferrari Monza that is smart enough to drive itself, allowing the driver to remain occupied with other things that are perhaps more important such as work. The pilot will sit inside the cockput just like how you straddle a motorcycle whenever you want to take over the driving, but whenever a specified speed limit […]
08/17/2008, Alarm clocks are often associated with noisy devices, but the Silence alarm clock concept will attempt to rouse you from your sleep without emitting a single sound. This is achieved by wearing a wireless rubber ring that has a built-in vibration capability, rocking crazily once the appointed time to wake up has arrived. Don’t worry for folks who list down the snooze button as mandatory – you can send the […]
08/14/2008, Close Up is an art table that will make drawing much more fun, featuring a light feature that facilitates tracing, sketching and observation. Heck, there are even integrated portable containers that can be used to store collected bugs and leaves, where a magnification lens acts as the container lid to help provide the budding artist with an even closer look at their nature collection. Designed by Carolina PeÃ±a Villarreal, this […]
08/11/2008, Free Wind is a concept of a smart ceiling-mounted air conditioner that comes with customizable air flows, ensuring you aren’t the only one to freeze to death while the rest of your colleagues (who conveniently seat away from the direct airflow) give you strange glances and turn down the temperature by another notch without thinking of your welfare. There will be half a dozen fans operated by a smart system […]
08/08/2008, Michael Laut has dreamt up of this conceptual AC unit that not only works quietly to help keep you asleep like a baby at night, it is also environmentally friendly just like its color. This wall-mounted device will induce air via ionization, eliminating the normally loud buzz of the AC unit that hangs outside of your home. It will also make use of condensation produced by the compressor to water […]
08/07/2008, Designer Any Kurovets certainly has a different take on life, conjuring his Bend Mobile concept. This device looks really large compared to the slim mantra that we’re experiencing with current gadgets, but who are we to judge? After all, cell phones did use to shrink to miniscule sizes before color displays came along, and then they started growing back in size again. The Bend Mobile comes with a pretty sharp […]
