Jaguar C-X17 revealed: “pretty feasible” for market release

The concept vehicle known as Jaguar C-X17 has been revealed in full today in Frankfurt - not as a production car, mind you, but as a concept that may very well see production in the near future. This is the first time Jaguar has launched into the CUV/SUV territory, and they've done so keeping the Jaguar design language from start to finish. This is thanks in a large way to Jaguar Design Director Ian Callum.

Goodbye MOTO X advertisements: don’t believe the hype

Goodbye MOTO X advertisements: don’t believe the hype

This morning several images of a proposed advertising campaign for the rebirth of Motorola through the MOTO X or X Phone device on August 1st have surfaced. What you're seeing isn't a leaked set of pre-production bits and pieces, but a conceptual work by a graphic designer that's pitching said ideas to the company. And if it were real, he'd certainly not be posting this all up for the public.

Anyone who watched The Jetsons as a kid has been eagerly awaiting the day we can take our personal vehicles to the sky, zooming away towards the clouds to pick up a pizza or the dry cleaning. Such a reality isn't here yet, but Terrafugia's new TF-X concept gives us yet another glimpse into what that future could look like, showing off a car that looks similar to an older Ford Taurus that sprouted half a pair of X-Fighter wings.

Apple patents wrap-around AMOLED display

Apple patents wrap-around AMOLED display

This week Apple's industrial designers and inventors have found their way back into the USPTO with a patent filing for a wrap-around display. This means that you'll have a device that's got a display that's wrapping around its sides rather than just sitting on the front - AMOLED in technology, too. You'll have brightness and light coming at you from all directions!

Motorola X Phone render “leaked”: 5 specifications to make you freak

Motorola X Phone render “leaked”: 5 specifications to make you freak

As we draw ever nearer the developer conference known as Google I/O 2013, tips and rumors (and today a 3D rendering) of a Motorola-made "X Phone" have made their way to the public. What we're seeing here is an illustrated version of what a tipster has suggested will be what the upcoming Google Nexus device will bring to the market this spring, with a possible reveal hitting in early May as Google's convention takes place. Along with the rendering from GSMArena has come a set of specifications that are sometimes fabulous, sometimes bafflingly low-grade.

The iCompanion wearable: there is no iWatch

The iCompanion wearable: there is no iWatch

If you're thinking that today's big announcement from "unnamed sources familiar with the matter" surrounding the so-called "iWatch" is simply an expansion of what we've seen in the past with the iPods of old, you're sorely mistaken. Instead the only possible course of action Apple will be considering is one in which they open up another new category of device. If Apple cannot create what I'm about describe as the "iCompanion", their supposed "100 product designers working on a wristwatch-like device" won't deliver a market-ready device.

This image shows a Cross GT concept vehicle with just a few details being revealed, most of them inside smooth lines and a laid-back feel. This vehicle has been tipped as a lovely Urban Vehicle with two-door action and next-generation innards - this we can guess while details involved are quite scant at the moment.

iPhone Plus mock-up offers real 4.94-inch display vision

iPhone Plus mock-up offers real 4.94-inch display vision

This week the developer of Instapaper, Mr. Marco Arment, has created a rather intriguing mock-up of what the "iPhone Plus" would look like, using specifications, tips, and rumors to push the idea of this device as close to reality as possible. The device itself would work as an in-between aside the iPhone 5 and the iPad mini, filling in the perceived "gap" left at the moment where no iOS device currently exists. The iPhone Plus (or iPhone+ or iPhone Math) would work with a 4.94-inch display and a lovely 640 x 1136 pixel (264 PPI) resolution.

Apple patent shows shoe sensor for information on sole death

Apple patent shows shoe sensor for information on sole death

If you've got a pair of shoes that are so old that your feet touch the ground, you're going to need a new pair - this will no longer have to be a scenario where you have to make that judgement if Apple's newest patent application is realized. In the application revealed this week, Apple has shown an outline for how they might place sensors in shoes that track the wear and tear on the soles of the footwear in a variety of ways. The end result will be a pair of shoes that informs the wearer if they get worn out while walking then warns every subsequent wearer (if there are any) that they are not fit to use.
