Just Empty Memories…
Posted: 14 Dec 2011 05:06 AM PST
Empty Memory is an elegant jewelry collection that works as USB memory sticks! Delightful designs crafted by Yoo-Kyung Shin & Hanhsi Chen, each stick is a response to their questions, “what will happen if the technology becomes invisible.” The collection comes with two different designs – Structure and Transparency, both indicating that you can fill 'em up with your own memories!
  • Structure comes with stainless finishing, white Rhodium plating & black Rhodium plating.
  • Transparency comes with stainless brushed / mirror finishing, Rose Gold plating & black Rhodium plating.
  • Both versions contains 4GB volume with high speed USB 2.0

A Wacom Wet Dream?
Posted: 14 Dec 2011 04:38 AM PST
The Sketcher concept is a piece of innovation that I think all my designer friends will want to try. It is a tablet designed specifically for illustrators and designers looking for the best drawing experience. The current crop of tablets supports graphic software, but they lack accuracy and pressure sensitivity. Banking on Wacom's glory, this concept hopes to give designers a real digital sketchpad that is surreal to use. One juicy function that I really like is that you can use the camera to capture the hand-drawn sketch and finish it off as a digital masterpiece!
Technical Specifications:
  • 12″ amoled multi touch screen with led backlighting
  • 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity
  • Dual Core CPU
  • Android OS
  • WiFi
  • 8 programmable buttons
  • Capacitive jogdial
  • 2 standard USB ports
  • 5.0 MP camera with led flash
  • 1 Wacom standard graphic pen
  • Symmetrical design suitable for left and right hand people
  • Zoom function without changing tablet position
  • 360x255x20 mm
  • 650 grams weight

A Tribute to the Italian Bull
Posted: 14 Dec 2011 12:03 AM PST
Automotive enthusiast Marko Petrovic’s unusual timepiece takes inspiration from and follows the design language of Lamborghini’s ultramodern hypercar, the Aventador. The Avenger watch transfers the same ultramodern aesthetic, signature black and orange of the Aventador, and complex engineering into a vertical tourbillion presented much in the same way as the car’s engine and transparent cover. It’s loud… real loud.

Sustainable Streetlamp
Posted: 14 Dec 2011 12:02 AM PST
Sculptural sidewalk element by day and super-efficient streetlamp by night, the Windtulip is a great example of one of the many changes we can make in our public areas in order to reach environmental sustainability. Harnessing the power of the wind, compact turbines generate and transmit energy from transformer to battery before the lamp’s light-sensors activate the LED.

Svelte Cam
Posted: 14 Dec 2011 12:01 AM PST
Vladimir Nikolic’s compact 12.1 megapixel digicam was designed to take the guesswork out of choosing the right shooting mode. The camera features an iAuto mode that automatically adjusts settings for the best pictures in almost any environment. The slender design is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand but powerful enough to capture star quality images with superb contrast and clarity down to the finest detail.
Designer: Vladimir Nikolic
