Daredroid dress, or the cocktail dress is one that will reward you with cocktails, if you play with it right. Of course it needs various valves, sensors and hardware to ultimately get that drink to you, which is dispensed by a tap near the wearers chest. As the dress is approached, it produces milk. But make it happy in a game of truth and dare, and it might just endow you with a White Russian cocktail.
It may not be the most interesting thing ever, but a vacuum cleaner you can strap on to your hands definitely can find use somewhere. When there’s TV tops, monitors and shelves to be cleaned, this concept would absolutely rock. But the best part would be to see someone compete with a roomba and clean the floor with this thing.
Tokyoflash watches are known to do a lot more than just tell time. This time around, they’re going to check the watch wearer’s blood alcohol content (BAC). Just push the dedicated button on the concept watch to activate its alcohol test function, and it will get back with the BAC. I have no idea what use it can be except for some crazy drinking games.
The 2020 Chevrolet Era concept was a GM sponsored project for designer Yana Briggs. Looking at the future, the car doesn’t simply intend to have a low carbon footprint, but it also looks towards actually cleaning the air that it move through. The futuristic design with somewhat teary-eyed headlights is powered solely by photovoltaic cells on its roof while the car’s filters stay busy cleaning the air that comes in through them.
A creation of Dripta Design Studio, these shelves are made to look like thought bubbles. Place them right, keep the right stuff in those shelves and we have a winner. Of course, these whimsical shelves aren’t the most efficient storage units, but they compensate for that with their good looks.
Mostly with eyewear, you’re stuck with the color you buy. Unless you can have a go at these concept glasses from Luis Porem. RgB Rainbow Glasses have an empty, transparent frame that you can color to your choice by adding water based inks to the frame. Totally not the smartest of ideas, but worth a look anyway.
We can doubt the wisdom of a twisted arrow used as a wall-hanging fruit dish. Made by ApiuPiu Design, the fruit bowl has stone, aluminum or acrylic tips and feather tail, and can hold a few fruits in its curves.
On some level, we’ve always been smitten with the elegance of retro-tech. Now that modern technology has made most of those things obsolete, we still find nostalgia in the wonders of old technology. Created by Richard Clarkson, the rotary smartphone concept combines the wonders of modern digital technology of the day with the wonders of physical mechanical systems of the past.
Almost a year ago, we had a look at the future of the airplane, courtesy Airbus. Their concept for 2050 is about a super long passenger craft with slim wings, semi-embedded engines, and a U-shaped tail. An interesting part is the cabin of course, which could go transparent when required, giving passengers a new look at their surroundings. We doubt it would go invisible like Wonder Woman’s plane, but it does offer a transparent cabin and a virtual golf course to go along, as evidenced in these freshly released images by Airbus.
