Champ Sofa is both couch and a punching bag

by Mark R

Here is a couch that is “more than meets the eye” by German designer Tobias Fraenzel. As you can see, the back cushion can flip up and become a punching bag. Granted, I don’t know why I would want such a thing, but you never know when frustration is going to hit, and hit hard. So why not just prop up the cushion and smack the living heck out of …

Quill Concept All-Terrain Vehicle

by Mark R

What you are seeing here isn’t some prop from a science fiction movie, but the Quill concept by British designer Halil Buzcuoglu. This car is designed to drive over snow and land “with equal efficiency”. Whoa, does that mean that it can drive through snow as fast as it can on land? That would be quite something, considering those tank treads on the front of it. The Quill can hold …

Train interior concept can retract seats

by Mark R

Just to let you know, you are not looking at the interior of a ghost train. This is concept design for a train interior where railway travel isn’t a drag for the living. Designed by Chris Precht, it has an interior with pull down seats instead of stationary and unmoving seats. This makes a railway car very accommodating for whatever occasion that you need it.

UPS stands for Universal Packing System now

by Mark R

I don’t know about you, but I really hate shipping things. It never fits in the box just perfectly. Not that I am OCD about the whole thing, but you usually have to pack things in with a bunch of newspaper or Styrofoam popcorn into order to make it tight in the box, and flat on top. This are, of course, prime shipping conditions. Fortunately, there is UPS. Now, I …

E-ink concept could change the face of newspapers

by Mark R

I think we all know that newspapers are dying. However, it may be something that will always be around in some form, like radio. This is a concept newspaper that uses E-ink with a semi-transparent surface. Basically, it is creates a display on a surface that looks just like a newspaper, but won’t leave any black ink residue on your hands. There is a video after the break if you …

Robot Report: Getting more human all the time

by Mark R

The last time we talked about Robovie, we mentioned that he looked like he was ready to take over all of us fleshy humans. It would appear that Robovie-R, a robot that is designed to assist the elderly, has been upgraded to Version 3 which now stands 120 cm tall and weighs 43 kg. You can see a video of it after the jump. If you really want to be …

T-OLED makes transparent glass a display

by Mark R

I think we all know that we are heading for an era where every pane of glass will be a display of some type. I mean, if there is one thing science fiction has taught us: no glass shall go to waste on something as mundane as a window. It would appear that some Korean technology could make this a reality with transparent OLED or T-OLED. The purpose is to …

GPS Built Into Your Visor

by Ally

I don’t know how many times I have been completely and utterly stressed out, because I was driving in a city I’m unfamiliar with.  Only to start swearing profusely when the suction cup for my GPS manages to fall off of my windshield and scare the absolute life out of me.  I think I’m suction cup challenged.  There should be a support group for that.  That or someone could create …
