Computer Keyboard Pants: Neither Fashionable Nor Geeky

Computer Keyboard Pants: Neither Fashionable Nor Geeky
I was considering filing this under ‘Cute or Stupid?’, but my common sense prevailed. Designed (?) by Erik De Nijs, this pair of pants called “Beauty and the Geek” has no ounce of cuteness or any redeeming factor whatsoever.

Conceptualized by designaffairs studio with developing countries in mind, the Swirl is a “washing ball” that also serves as a clothes bin, a container for water, and a toy.

Rug With Scale Remembers Your Weight and Keeps Your Feet Warm
For anyone who uses a scale regularly, it’s a given that most of them out there are pretty basic. How about injecting a bit of style and technology into these utilitarian weight-watchers? And no, I’m not talking about a scale that tweets your weight.

The Great Wall of Ipads

The Great Wall of Ipads
Even though the iPad was just announced, there are already plenty of concepts emerging that could take advantage of the device. This one is somewhat interesting, but dubious. It’s basically a huge display made from a bunch of refurbished/recycled iPads.

Geoffrey Cooper’S Geocentric Watch Mimics the Motions of the Planet
As much as I like digital clocks, there’s just something great about cool analog ones. This watch is called Geocentric, and for now it’s just a concept design. Geoffrey Cooper’s Geocentric watch is kind of awesome.

Toshiba Rx Medical Tablet Pc: the Clipboard Evolved

Toshiba Rx Medical Tablet Pc: the Clipboard Evolved
Seems like Lenovo has set a standard for the form of the computers of the near future with their Ideapad hybrid tablet. Toshiba has a similar and sensible concept for a medical computer: The Toshiba Rx replaces the traditional clipboard and medical sheet used in hospitals in favor of a touchscreen tablet: “Using state of the art medical software, nurses and doctors can document, diagnose, communicate and educate while bedside or on the go.” It’s an elegant improvement over traditional notetaking – a digital clipboard means less paper, less waste, and easier filing and archiving.

Dell Froot Concept Computer Does Away With Keyboard, Monitor
How’d you like a desktop computer that works without any physical keyboard or monitor? That’s what industrial designer Paulina Carlos envisions with her Dell Froot concept PC. Instead of connecting to a traditional monitor or USB keyboard, the Froot features a pair of projectors – one that casts the keyboard on a tabletop, and the other one that projects the computer screen on the wall.

2oct2031: in the Future It’Ll Still be Hard to Tell Time
This modern watch isn’t made out of diamonds, but its face is akin to some kind of cut stone. It’s called the 2Oct2031, presumably because it’s from the future. The 2Oct2031 watch was created by the Chinese designer Tao Ma, and from the minute you set your eyes on it, you try and make sense of what your eyes are seeing.

Newman Newsmy A18hd Media Player Looks Mighty Slim
I must start out this post by saying that I rarely trust artist’s renderings of gadgets before they’re released, as they’re almost never what the real thing looks like. That said, this new media player LOOKS pretty slick from the concept renders, but I haven’t found any photos of the real thing.
