Jon Liow’s Solar concept is an interactive light and smartphone app system that synchronizes with a user-specified timezone to mirror the sun's natural light cycle. The user’s curiosity can run wild as they explore different timezones from the comfort of home. This unique take on time allows us to feel connected with places we may have never even been or seen, with the user being able to experience the light cycle of any location in the world.
The device has several different functions. In its simplest form, the user can either allow the app to automatically sync with the light to trigger a twenty-four hour cycle based on their current location, or manually select any city in the world. Once the light is triggered by the app via Bluetooth, it runs independently without needing to be connected to the smartphone. Secondary functions of the system include the ability for the user to invert the light cycle. This option allows the user to reverse the function of the light, resulting in it shining brightest during the timezone’s darkest hours and remaining dark during the timezone’s brightest hours. The ambient function allows the user to disengage the twenty-four hour light cycle, and control the brightness of the light manually.

How I love the creative genius of Phone Designer aka Jonas Dähnert! Inspired by the original 2012 Surface, this concept phone has all the elements of a sleek design and ingenuity that is often seen missing in Microsoft products. Remember Zune? Moving on, if we throw the floor open for debate, then what kinda featured would you like to see in this Windows 8 powered phone? Do tell….

The Closed Watch is an innovative tool for hikers and mountain climber; it intuitively informs them about the sunrise and sunset times. Keeping safety in mind, the timings for sunset during the different seasons is factored into the design. Pretty impressive if you ask me! At the press of a button you can switch between winter and summer, and get accurate intuitive details. Matter of fact, the watch is ideal for any outdoor sports and recreational activity.
Closed Watch is a 2013 red dot awards: design concept winner!

The PP Capsule is a distant relative of the beanbag chair that is composed entirely of post-consumer materials. The lightweight yet durable outer later is made with recycled polyester, the most sustainable synthetic fiber on the market. As for the inside, each capsule uses 4000 standard PP plastic bottle caps chopped into small pieces before filling the chair. Best of all, this eco-concious design can be produced by local enterprises, seamstresses, & craftsman by using 2 materials that are found worldwide!
