Drashphone Foldable Smart Phone

Written by

 Imagine having a touchscreen smartphone that you could fold up.

 That’s a bit impractical right?

 Encom Industries  doesn’t think so because that have come up with a concept for a foldable phone and it’s called Drasphone

 What you’re seeing right  is called the Drasphone and it’s a handset that’s meant to combine the clamshell with a flexible handset. This conceptual smartphone is able to bend at 3 points, onot two or  one.

The concept behind the Drasphoneis combining clamshell (flip) design of the 90s with modern day touchscreen display whiling pioneering flexible display technology.

Google Driverless Car

Written by

We have known for some time that Google are very interested in automative driving. In fact they have been in development of this technology for some time, although perviously this technology had been installed on everyday cars which enabled automative driving. This car however is the first time Google have built there own vehicle and its fully autonomous.

 

Designed to resemble a city car, the car has two seats and is made from a soft foam-like material. As the car is fully autonomous there is no steering wheel or pedals, just a simple stop and go button..according to Google you don’t need controls you simply tell the car where you want to go and voila! With a a top speed of 25mph there is no fear of speeding! The car uses a series of cameras, sensors  and software, the combination of which enable the car to drive without the need of controls or a human driver.

 

Even though you are unlikely to see the Google driverless car on the street anytime soon the company remains determined to be the first to bring this technology to the world. “Fully autonomous driving has always been the goal of our project, because we think this could improve road safety and help lots of people who can’t drive. We’re now developing prototypes of vehicles that have been designed from the ground up to drive themselves—just push a button and they’ll take you where you want to go! We’ll use these vehicles to test our software and learn what it will really take to bring this technology into the world.” Google states that when testing begins they will use 100 vehicles each of which will have extra controls allowing test drivers to take over should there be any issues.

Form 1 3-D Printer

Written by

In October 2012, Formlabs publicly announced its first product, the Form 1 3D printer, in a Kickstarter campaign that raised a record breaking $2.95 million in funding making the Form 1 one of the most highly funded crowdfunding projects of all time. Form 1 3D printers began shipping to backers in May of 2013. The Form 1 uses a 3D printing process known as stereolithography, wherein liquid resin is cured, or transformed, into a solid material by the application of laser light. Although previously available in larger, more expensive machines, the Form 1 offers stereolithography in a smaller, more affordable desktop-class device.

Dream Reader

Written by

What will happen if you can see your dream's repeat telecast in morning.? you can watch on your laptop what you in night dreams. In future it will become possible to record your dream. Using pillows with conducting fibres in the fabric, it will be possible to see monitor electrical activity from the brain.This will not only show when someone is dreaming, but recent developments indicate that we’ll also be able to tell what they are dreaming about. It is also possible for two friends to share dreams. One will try to enter in a friend’s dream in the same direction, so that they could effectively share their dream, and may even be able to interact in it.

Line Form

Written by

Applications allow PCs and mobile devices to serve different functions. But what if your gadget could change its physical form too?

MIT's Media Lab has created LineFORM, a "Shape Changing Interface" that presents new ways for us to interact with technology. LineFORM is a serpentine robot that has the ability to form a number of shapes, mixing flexibility with rigidity.

 Lines have several interesting characteristics from the perspective of interaction design: abstractness of data representation; a variety of inherent interactions / affordances; and constraints as boundaries or borderlines. By utilising such aspects of lines together with the added capability of shape-shifting, we present various applications in different scenarios such as shape changing cords, mobiles, body constraints, and data manipulation to investigate the design space of line-based shape changing interfaces.
