Mobius Strip Lamp Concept Design Aims to Streamline the Clutter

We haven't really noticed it, but apparently the current design for street lights, along with the way that we tell pedestrians its safe to walk across the street, is cluttered. Designer Kisung Lee looks to change all of that with the latest concept design for a street light.

LUMI Mask Will Wake You Up Gently if Enough Money is Raised

LUMI Mask Will Wake You Up Gently if Enough Money is Raised

Kickstarter has seen a lot of cool gadgets recently, all finding their way onto the site to help get money raised for the designer's (hopefully) great idea. iPod Nano watches, and then edible Jelloware cups. All of which have spent their time on Kickstarter, trying to find "backers" to invest in the idea, and bring it to life. For designer Taylor Franklin Hide, his idea is a mask that not only helps you sleep by blocking out everything in sight, but will also wake you up when the time is right.

Hydroleaf Shelter Collects and Purifies Water, Acts as Bus Stop

Integrating eco-friendly features into our every day things may be one of the best ways to actually implement the technology, along with the way of life, especially for those who haven't embraced the movement. For something like the Hydroleaf Shelter, it's a great and easy way to provide clean, drinkable water for those who might be waiting for a bus, or other forms of public transportation. Or simply just need a drink.

Engineering Students Create Cheap Way to Tell When Water is Safe to Drink

There's one way that will usually make a concept go from a plan to the real deal pretty quickly: make it cheap. While some concept designs may focus on helping the environment, or finding new ways to help humans in certain situations, they may make it too impractical due to costs. But, if you can manage to create something that is practical and costs less than five dollars to make, we're pretty sure that means you've got a winner on your hands. At least, that's what students from the University of Washington are hoping.

ET3 Tube System Wants to Take You From New York to Beijing in 2 Hours

If you're claustrophobic, then travelling on any kind of vehicle for transportation is probably pretty rough. Especially an airplane, where you're sitting right next to a lot of people, in a relatively small space (depending on how you fly, of course). So maybe a giant tube system wouldn't be to your liking. But, if you've got to get somewhere, even somewhere around the world, in a hurry, the ET3 system could be just what the world has been waiting for.

TRON Watch Concept Design Uses Hexa-Slots to Tell Time

We're certainly covering the gamut of possible gadgets that could be inspired, and themed, by the recently released TRON: Legacy movie. While the orange-hued Xbox 360 controller and real-life light cycles may be the coolest "real" gadgets we've seen, this concept design from designer Abhinav Dapke has us hoping that some watch designer out there will pick up the reigns and make this watch real.

ZTE Corporation’s Double Smartphone Wins Red Dot Concept Design Award

As far as concepts for cellphones and smartphones go, they can be pretty creative. As most concepts are, truth be told. But usually, they tend to have a few features in there that we'd love to see in our actual pocketable devices. For example, ZTE Corporation's concept design for the Double smartphone, which has the same features that plenty of today's favorite designs have, but also throws in plenty of interesting aspects that would probably be great additions for our smartphones of the future.
