Potential of 3D printers is huge. As they get out of their infancy, the ideas and uses associated with them keep growing at the same pace. This food printer concept is an entry to a competition by the Electrolux Design Lab. Atomium concept by Brazilian designer Luiza Silva strives to bring 3D printing to the food world, with a touch of added creativity and the idea of making food way more fun.
Laptops are great for portable use, often chosen at the expense of desktops, which happen to promise greater comfort of use. Portable devices have grown greatly, though it is too early to discount the venerable desktop. U.DTR (Ultra Desktop Replacement) by Marin Myftiu is a concept that tries to bring laptops and desktops into one harmonious union by taking the best of both.
Winter is approaching fast, and with it the trouble of operating the phones we carry. Touchscreens don’t really work with gloves, and exposing hands to the biting cold nearly every time we have to use the phone is big trouble. That is where solutions like these gloves come in handy. They work just fine with touchscreens, and keep hands protected from the wrath of cold weather. The images you see here are from Mujjo, who offer touchscreen compatible gloves for $33.33, or more stylish leather gloves for $173.57. Of course, you could always find more options on Amazon.
People apparently are programmed to love the iPhone. For his newest prank, Jimmy Kimmel asked people to try out the new iPhone 5S. What they were actually given was the iPad Mini, but even so people couldn’t help remark that the new iPhone was lighter, sleeker and smaller(!) than the previous iPhone. They even convinced a woman to lick the iPad and taste what was on screen, it tasted good.
When you are looking at a camera from Leica, you expect good looks. Add Audi’s design to the mix, and we hear you could be legally obligated to like the design. Thankfully, that isn’t much of a chore, though you might have to flex a couple of muscles to justify the fabled Leica plus Audi design cooperation. Leica C Type 112 is the first in the range, with many cameras to follow its compact style.
We have already seen the hilarious parody of the iPhone 5S, and now would be a good time to see one for the iPhone 5C. You have to admit, the videos look pretty damn good going with Apple’s announcement of the new phones.
Apple has announced new phones and updates for the iDevices. First off, its the launch of the iPhone 5S. This one is an obvious upgrade to its predecessor, the good old iPhone 5, which has now been discontinued. The expected price drop that the iPhone 5 had to take with the coming of the 5S, is a slot now being filled by the new iPhone 5C. Remember, the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C are very different phones.
Sony’s new QX series Lens Style Cameras are brilliant. A good chunk of photographs come from the very capable smartphones almost everyone carries these days. In the same vein, cameras too have evolved into digital settings and many of their components overlap with those available in smartphones. Sony is putting the two in a union with the Lens Style Cameras. The QX Series are comparatively small cameras, almost smaller than several lenses available. But each of these is a full fledged camera with its own lens, sensors, processor, microSD storage, and the wifi capability that makes it all possible.
Samsung has entered the Smartwatch arena with the Galaxy Gear smartwatch. Rather than be smart all by itself, the watch works with the Galaxy range of phones and tablets, and makes them slightly more convenient for the user. It connects to the Galaxy gadget through a Bluetooth 4.0 ＋ BLE connection and keeps you informed of incoming mails, texts and messages so you don’t have to reach out for the phone or tablet when every little notification shows up.
