Dieter Rams rightly puts it, "Design should not dominate things, should not dominate people. It should help people. That’s its role." To help progress in this direction, we have the Design Turkey Conceptual Design Awards. One that you can participate and take home name, fame, accolades and prizes. Hit the jump to know more.
This is one of the most prestigious awards in the world and is a design evaluation system organized with the collaboration of the Republic of Turkey Ministry of Economics, the Turkish Exporters Assembly (TIM) and the Industrial Designers Society of Turkey (ETMK), within the framework of the TURQUALITY program endorsed by ICSID for 2014.
Design Turkey Conceptual Design Awards are awarded to the design projects, which have not yet been scheduled to be produced. Evaluation of the conceptual design awards is carried out in a four-step process comprising application, pre-selection, awarding and promotion.

Scoobi is the all-in-one scooter, bike and trike for training tots to ride and scoot! The design features a variable wheelbase so little ones can start out on a 3-wheeled trike before using their new skills on a more difficult setting. When they're ready, the two rear wheels merge into one to transform into a true bicycle. Better yet, a removable seat allows for easy transition between scooter and bike depending on the rider's preference!

In the league of portable scanners, so far the biggest innovation has been to make them as small as a wand. Harry Potter series is long gone and its time to lose the wand and embrace the Zcan – the world's first wireless scanner mouse. Mind you people, we said MOUSE! We have seen plenty of scanners before but not this kinda 2-in-1 Device!
By integrating the scanner into the mouse, a new unique way of scanning documents, books, magazines etc. has surfaced. Imagine … sketch, scan and upload your work on the notebook, so swift and easy!
Love it? We do too – get yours via this Indigogo Campaign.
What we like about it is the funky swipe with a zigzag motion that reflects the scanned potion on your computer screen. Swipe – capture – directly import to Excel and text (instead of PDF since you can edit the two in Microsoft Office). You can even share the scanned images to Facebook, Twitter or translate to speech.
For example, you found a great design in a magazine and want to share it on Facebook, simply Swipe – Capture – Share! How about that exciting box of Ramen you bought from Japan but not sure what it contains…. Scan the ingredients and translate via Google! As simple as that!
Here are some of the uses of this handy mouse: immediate document backup, specific portion of document scan, receipts, business cards, nutritional information printed in a foreign language (scanned and translated).
The great part about the technology used is that the scanned image stays saved and searchable, allowing you to get rid of the unwanted papers. Sync it with your iPad or iPhone and retrieve information in a jiffy.

Current e-cigarette designs leave it to the user to gradually reduce their own nicotine dosage until they’re prepared to quit entirely, but the notion that users who have trouble weaning in the first place will curb their own addiction is a dead-end road! The E-Volve system takes the user out of the equation. To smooth the process, the autonomous design fractionally reduces the nicotine output at a gradual level that is unnoticeable by the user. This also eliminates the need for complex capsule dosages and calculations, further reducing the effort it takes to quit.

Rather than using expensive, sensitive, hi-tech hardware (like a head-up display or mini lens-projector), Jun Yin’s Viewpace goggles offer a simple extension of a timer for swimmers to track their lap times. The extension is slim and lightweight yet rigid enough to stay intact during rigorous underwater movement. While there is a level of resistance it creates in relation to hydrodynamics, this is negligible compared to the current method of stopping entirely to check a stopwatch located at the edge of the pool!
