It's amazing what you can design when you free yourself from the limitations of engineering. Aatma Studio's iPad 3 concept isn't what Apple's going to announce on March 7, but it's already looking way more interesting and revolutionary than the real deal.
Taking inspiration from a Lamborghini Aventador, Marko Petrovic's "Avenger Vertical" tourbillon watch pays tribute to the Italian-made sports car's partially exposed rear-engine canopy. If only it wasn't just a concept.
Repurposing the iPhone for yet another use is becoming commonplace, but the ingenious variety of applications continue to astound as in the case of the Floating Orchestra.
It's not easy to get get excited for a printer, unless it's a 3D printer, in which case we're running around the room screaming our heads off. But Artefact's "See What You Print" concept is so ingenious, it makes us wonder why nobody's thought of it already. Instead of prepping photos and prints on your computer screen and then sending them to a printer, the SWYP actually shows you exactly how a print will appear on paper on its screen. Using its touchscreen, you can even arrange elements in various layouts. Something like this could seriously revolutionize print media.
Folding bikes are a great solution for city dwellers, because when you're done with your ride, you can simply carry the bike into your office or apartment. This concept bike called the Union takes the folding idea to new extremes, breaking down into a package that's just eight inches across.
Touch screen devices are now a normal part of our computing environment, but now a new player seeks to add a bit more flair to what has until now been a relatively conservative design approach by putting the power of Android on your wrist.
Our phones and cars are evolving, so there's no reason why simple things like our bicycles shouldn't become appropriately futurized as well....
Called "Green Power Island," the goal here is to leverage not just one green energy solution, but mash a bunch of them together to create one whopper of a renewable powerhouse. It's more than what you see on the surface, too, thanks to some clever engineering.
In the heat of summer, many New Yorkers fantasize about swimming in the East River, but none will do so due to how straight-up disgusting the water in the East River is. But a new project aims to change that.
American designer Jon Salerno's "Habitat" may be tiny, but it actually makes for some pretty smart living. The small space features all the basic comforts, and also takes advantage of a companion vehicle that'll double as your living room when you park it.
