Design Concept

Universal Translator is More Science-Fiction Than Reality

Universal Translator is More Science-Fiction Than Reality

In most situations, when you look at a design concept, you're supposed to get the sense that some day, at some point in the (perhaps distant) future, you'll be able to get your hands on this. Just like we saw with Sony's design for their Eclipse media management device. This one, though. Well, we can safely say that it's really a concept. Not that it's not cool -- because it's a great idea, but we're just wondering if the designer had one too many drinks while they were watching their favorite Sci-Fi flick.

Sony Eclipse Concept Design Offers Solar Powered Wireless Media Management

As far as concepts go, this one's sitting at the top of the hill, at least until it gets dethroned soon enough. Brought to you by Sony, the Eclipse is designed to give you a truly wireless, and eco-friendly way to manage --and listen to-- your media. And considering we know we're not the only ones out there that hate wires, we imagine that something like this would be a smash hit.

Periscope Camera Extends the Lens and Bends the Frame of Creativity

Let's face it. There's not a lot of differentiation between cameras. Amongst the point-and-shoots, and amidst the masses of DSLRs, they generally all look alike. There's nothing wrong with that, especially if you start looking at all the color options of those point-and-shoots, but we need something different! And, right on schedule, we've got a DSLR that's unique enough to grab our attention.

Dot Wristwatch Features LED Time Telling, More Bracelet Than Watch

Dot Wristwatch Features LED Time Telling, More Bracelet Than Watch

We're not sure when it happened, but apparently the move to make your wristwatch look more like a bracelet than, say, a watch is apparently taking off. This time around, it's the "Dot" wristwatch, utilizing LED technology to bring you the latest time without much effort at all. What makes it more bracelet than watch, too, is the fact that it's created from perforated rubber, and not some ridiculous amount of metal.

CubeBrowser Brings Images From the Internet Onto a Cube

CubeBrowser Brings Images From the Internet Onto a Cube

The CubeBrowser is designed to bring images from the cloud, or online, right to your hands. This isn't just a normal picture frame. Not at all. Instead of just putting it on a desk somewhere and forgetting about it, you're meant to hold it in your hand, turn it over, and look at the six-sided device as new images are displayed based on your actions. A great idea, for sure, especially because you're not supposed to just leave it somewhere and show it off with a point of a finger.

NL Architects’ Multi Mill is a Rotating Outdoor Theater Proposed for Amsterdam

When's the last time you saw a drive-in movie theater? It's probably been ages, right? The indoor theater definitely took over, and while there's still plenty of people out there who would probably love to go visit their local drive-in again, it doesn't look like that's going to happen any time soon. But, if you're in Amsterdam, then you may be getting one step closer to getting exactly that. But, instead of some boring stationary theater, you might get one that actually rotates.

The Ostoure Street Bike Looks Amazing, Offers In-Helmet HUD

As far as we can tell, the look and feel of the standard street bike is going to change drastically between now, and five years from now. With each and every concept we see make its way to the public eye, they get more extravagant, and feature-enabled. This time around, the Ostoure street bike, which takes quite a few aesthetic approaches from sources like Persepolis, along with plenty of one-eyed robotic fictional characters out there. Aircraft elements make a play for exposure here, too, with those handlebars looking more like jet fighter controls than anything else. But, most importantly, that Heads-Up Display.
