Say Hello To The Genesis Essentia Concept

Genesis Essentia Concept

Unveiled at the New York Auto Show, the all-electric Genesis Essentia Concept is a lovely head-turner. Good looks and performance of this concept could do wonders for the Genesis brand, and also for the parent company, Hyundai. Genesis sees the concept as the pinnacle of its awkward sounding “Athletic Elegance” design language; the phrase thankfully is overshadowed, or at least vindicated by the looks of the Essentia.

Steampunk Wristwatch Automata Stylishly Writes Time

Steampunk Watch Automata by Frisk_P

As a wristwatch, this giant may not be the best thing, but it certainly is pretty cool. When you want to know the time, the watch mechanism kicks in and writes time on the watch face. To make sure it doesn’t overwrite on the watch face, the automata starts with dusting off and erasing the watch face. Of course, the whole mechanism is quite bulky and requires steadiness, but as an automata, it is pretty damn cool.

Checkout this sweet balloon art by Tokyo-based artist Masayoshi Matsumoto. Well, balloon animals aren’t exactly a rarity, but the sheer complexity of Matsumoto’s creatures makes these way more interesting than your run-off-the-mill balloon art. The artist’s creations are made solely out of balloons – no markers, adhesives or sealants are employed.

In true MB&F style, The Fifth Element is more than just a set of mechanical instruments clubbed together – it is a mechanical sculpture with incredible craftsmanship.

Why You Shouldn’t Name Your Concepts When Drunk: F**ktron Keyboard

Fktron Glass Keyboard

It is a concept, an idea that exists as a rendering; it could be many things, but it chose to be a keyboard. As a new concept keyboard, it looked at the wide choices of names it could have, wondering if simply being called keyboard would be enough. “No” said the booming voice of its creator, giving it the name F**ktron. This point forward, I’m just going to call it F-Tron. It is easier to write, and having to censor names just doesn’t sit right.
