For a lot of things, flying included, economies of scale play a big part. In very simple terms, a flying operation would be more efficient if it served more people in one go. That being the primary motive for airplane manufacturers busy making big-ass planes. But there’s something much bigger, even if it is just a concept. The Airborne Metro is a gigantic aircraft that could fly thousands of people to their destination.
Incandescent lights and paper don’t get along, for like, thousands of reasons science can come up with. But then the world kind of likes incandescent lamps and isn’t quite willing to let go. Which has paved the way for LED lamps that kind of mimic the incandescent bulb, even if only a little. A Lite-On Award winning design, the Eco Light seems to follow the same logic, albeit in a remarkably different way.
Cerberus Concept, like the Valhalla motorcycle concept is a manly machine that speaks of pure muscle and style. Designer Debopam Das took design and styling cues from numerous pop-culture items in creating this concept. Inspiration for the design came from Terminator’s John Connor, Tron Legacy, and the three-headed hell hound Cerberus.
Airplanes are goo, as in they take us to our destination quickly and in relative comfort. Airships on the other hand, might exist only as numerous concepts, but they do promise a luxury and comfort filled ride. Both of these however, turn pale when you get a chance to walk on clouds. Designed by New York based architect Tiago Barros, the floating cloud does not offer much by way of luxury, or speed, or even a destination.
The modern lifestyle and its pace leaves much to be desired, with most of us cutting back on the time to relax and rest, all just to stay in the race. At super hectic times, we think of what we wouldn’t give to get a quick nap. Now we know the answer. If the solution to the problem is sleeping in a vertical bed placed on a sidewalk, god help us.
A creation of designer Hussien Al Jammazi, the Teneen concept car is envisioned as a two seater electric car for a bustling metropolis. The tiny and compact car has a small footprint on the ground that lets it navigate easy and help ease the traffic of cities. The three wheel car is an excellent attempt, and the designer mentions the form of dinosaurs as an inspiration.
Simply put, the Celeritas Ferrari Concept by Aldo H. Schumann is a study in design and concept, a Ferrari with a new look that is geared towards luxury and the fun of driving, like every other prancing horse. Of course, the design seems to be a radical departure from the contemporary Ferrari style, and that is a good thing as far as this concept is concerned.
Canadian designer Matthew Law has created an electric motorcycle concept that gets a somewhat unique look, thanks to inspiration that comes in from various directions. Matthew decided to go the retro-futuristic way with the bike, giving it something of a Steampunkish appearance while imagining a motorcycle that would have been designed for the future in the 1940s or may be designed to be retro in 2020. Quite an imposing idea, I must add.
Pianos may have a sweet sound, but the musical instrument itself is a bit too tough to move, given its bulk. Now is a world of small spaces and cramped living being all too common, so having a piano can be a tough job, especially if you have to move.
It’s not just the name where designers Veronika Wildgruber and Susanne Stofer have gone creative with the Wardrope, but the product itself is pretty cool as well.

It can handle a weight of 30 pounds and the hooks can be moved along the rope. Costs $95.
