Retro-M upgrades old home intercom systems to whole home music players

Retro-M upgrades old home intercom systems to whole home music players

When I was a kid we lived in a neighborhood that was built by the same builder for most of the houses. They all had the old school intercom systems inside so you could spy on people in other rooms and call people to the door without having to yell or run down the hall. It was cool, but now that technology has progressed if you have one of these old intercom system is your home it might be more of an eyesore than something useful.

Tangible Digital Music via C60 by IDEO

Tangible Digital Music via C60 by IDEO

If you're like me, and people call you a hipster because you collect records and still play music on your iPod instead of on your record player which you might or might not actually own, this will interest you severely. Behold a project that was born like all sweet industrial design projects are: as a concept. Inside the book "I Miss My Pencil" there was a project that became this reality: a surface, shaped to recall the size and shape of a record (or a stack of records, rather) or a record player, called C60 (Redux).

Tocky alarm clock turns you into a gibbering morning idiot [Video]

The concept of an alarm clock on wheels that would attempt to escape your bleary-eyed grasp every morning never struck us as particularly appealing, but obviously enough people bought a Clocky for its successor, the Tocky, to be green-lighted.  As before, the clock can jump off your bedside table and try to roll away; what's new is the fact it can be programmed with a voice clip or MP3 to blare at you too.

Multi Feature Earpiece Covers All the Bases in One Small Design

As far as design concepts, the line between out-right science fiction and "eventual goal" is a pretty vague one. As we've seen in the past, especially with things like a Universal Translator, the idea may be great and the concept images may be aesthetically pleasing, but something immediately tells you that this gadget isn't coming any time soon. The Multi Feature Earpiece is one such gadget that, while it's a great idea in concept, we probably shouldn't get too excited about it right now. We'll try, anyway.

MP3 Player Concept Design Puts Touchscreen Display with Sports Body

When it comes to MP3 players, having a favorite is just like anything else. Usually, when it comes to the market, Apple's iPod usually has the choke hold. But, sometimes having that MP3 player just doesn't work when you're trying to work out, or go for a run. And, having that "sporty" MP3 player usually means it's not attractive to show off to anyone.

Energy Sistem 52 Touch Showcased With Plenty of Renders

Here's another product line-up for the over-saturated personal media player market. Not that options are a bad thing, mind you.
