The YEE Flying concept car: So this is love

by Mark R

I’ve been seeing this image on many a tech blog this morning. Everything that I have read about the YEE car that transforms into a plane is always so negative. Most people say that it is just too good to be true, and for that I will have to agree. Then again, I’m sure that people in Da Vinci’s time thought that airplanes and helicopters would never be made. In …

Introducing Muon, the mood car. Seriously.

by Mark R

This is an unusual concept car by designer Taeho Yoon. Not only does it have that unusual framework, but the Muon car can actually sense how you are feeling. That’s right, this is the Muon mood car. According to my source, it is a car that is in tune with the driver. For example, if someone gets behind the wheel, it can detect their pulse and check your pupils. Let’s …

SixthSense could help search-and-rescue teams

by Mark R

This is a concept device by Dieter Amick, and it is designed to make finding lost people a whole lot easier. It is named “SixthSense for Search and Rescue”, and it is designed to be a computer that you wear on the front of you. It isn’t exactly something that looks plausible with today’s technology, because the screen looks like it pulls out like a reverse window blind. Granted, I’ve …

Sony Nextep Wrist computer of 2020

by Mark R

I remember back in the eighties, when someone wanted to show some concept technology, they would say something like: “By the year 2000, this will be the technology”. Apparently, 2020 is the new 2000. I don’t know how many times I’ve seen concept technology that has said: “this is the tech of the year 2020″. This is a bracelet watch/mobile device called the Sony Nextep Computer, which has a pull-out …

Mecha Fish and Little Dog, films about real robots!

by Mark R

I thought you might enjoy two different advancements in robotics for today. The first is the Little Dog. It really looks more like a beetle, but this DARPA project really shows advancements in robot walkers. Have you ever seen a dog try and navigate obstacles like big rocks on a beach? Well, it kind of looks like the first video here. The only difference is that a dog trips every …

Multi-colored gloves for gesture-based computing

by Mark R

Remember those gloves that Tom Cruise wore to use that gesture-based computer in Minority Report? Yeah, tight fitting black gloves with a cool light on them. Now imagine if Tom wore a pair of these. Yes, these lycra gloves have 20 irregularly shaped patches in 10 different colors. The pattern is made to be used in companion with a webcam, and you can use many gestures to translate into certain …

The Flow Interactive Music System

by Ally

The Flow Interactive Music System is officially my new favorite concept design.  It’s not because it has the best looks out there, although it does look pretty cool.  It’s actually because it’s made to help you keep your music to match your mood.  When you’re ready to party no one wants to hear a slow song, so this speaker system using your own movements will set it on party mode.  …

The Stretching Clock

by Ally

Somehow I doubt there are a whole lot of people that don’t do that morning stretch.  It loosens up all of those muscles after a full night of a very small amount of movement.  Well this clock actually uses your morning stretch to shut off the alarm.  Which is a whole lot better than stretching while you have to listen to beeping or slamming on the clock and then stretching …
