We’ve featured many speaker docks for the iPhone and iPod Touch, including ones that don’t need electricity to amplify sound. But this is the first time I’ve come across a dock that also doubles the display size.
Niels van Hoof’s Feno laptop concept looks pretty sweet, since it looks like it’s half the size of a MacBook Air, but has got the same size screen as the MacBook Pro 17, thanks to a flexible OLED display.
I have talked about a bunch of different new bike security designs and whatnots that have landed recently, my favorite being the bank vault. Another new bike security concept has landed today, and it is designed so that you have a bike lock with you everywhere you go without having to wrap around or lock around your bike when you are riding.
We can only upgrade the software on our smartphones, but what if we could also do the same for its hardware components, just like with its big brother, the PC? That’s the idea behind the Revive Smartphone.
Our WiFi connection at home is largely confined to the indoors, and it doesn’t even reach all the corners of the house. So imagine my surprise when I read about a new technology that can send WiFi signals up to a mile away, and possibly even beyond.
I can see how this concept watch submitted by a Japanese designer might be considered crass by some, especially in light of the situation in Fukushima. Honestly, when I saw it the first thing that came to my mind was Fallout and the game’s Pip-Boy wrist computer.
While this concept is a few months old, it’s still interesting. It’s true that ergonomic keyboards do make touch-typing easier, especially if you spend long hours in front of you computer, but the modular aspect of this keyboard is somewhat strange.
I wager that at one point or another we have all played a little bit of air guitar when the mood hit while jamming to a good song on the radio. I know I have seen plenty of folks get down with some air guitar, but I can’t say that I have ever seen anyone get fancy with some air piano.
Of all the digital cameras on the market one of the coolest brands is Leica. This company has some of the most expensive digital cameras around and they are known for quality and style too. I love the retro design of the cameras.
Designer Jonathan Robson liked little comics that he received as a kid that were based on LEGO blocks. He says that the comics helped him to learn to read so he set about creating something for kids today that would make them want to learn to read.
When it comes to riding a bike around town or on the highway, the rider has to be aware of the cars zooming around. Often the drivers in those cars are oblivious to anything in their path that isn’t as large as they are.
If you’ve just moved into a bare, new apartment and find yourself strapped for cash, then the Land Peel could very well be your next best friend. You don’t have to spring for any furniture or desks or chairs or dining tables, for that matter.
If you’re like me, then the first thing that you probably crave for the moment you wake up (after brushing your teeth and taking a shower, of course) is breakfast. It’s the most important meal of the day so it’s something that I rarely ever skip, even though I’m already really late.
This very cool-looking vacuum tube amplifier was designed by Mateusz Główka. It looks like a solid hunk of metal, but it was made from sheets of aluminum and stainless steel. Each of the individual components has been placed specifically to give the best possible sound and reduce interference.
