The Oppo C1 gamepad turns your smartphone into a Switch-style portable gaming setup

While its lack of symmetric design does bother me a slight bit, the Oppo Gamepad C1 Unicorn Gundam Edition (the name’s quite a mouthful) does give you a great handheld gaming experience. It features a telescopic expandable design that lets you fit a smartphone in, although it’s tailored specifically to visually complement Oppo’s Reno Ace Gundam Edition.The C1 Gamepad’s most defining feature is its ergonomic, asymmetric design. It’s ergonomic to allow you to grip it better (especially with that c...

A Japanese charm redesigned to keep you healthy by syncing with the earth!

Omamori (お守り) are traditional good luck charms in Japanese culture that protect the wearer of the charm.

This “Bracelet of Silence” actively blocks Alexa and Siri from hearing your conversations

The dilemma with phones and smart-speakers are that they undermine the privacy of not just their owners, but everyone around them. Maybe you have a friend who loves talking about their cat, and that’s perfectly fine… until YOU begin getting ads for cat-food on your Instagram.Students at the University of Chicago developed a unique, wrist-worn bracelet that can remotely scramble all sorts of microphones in a working radius of a few feet. Just wear “The Bracelet of Silence” and switch it on when...

Fujifilm’s ‘infinitely flexible’ projector lets you project literally anywhere!

I doubt there’s any surface the Fujifilm’s FP-Z5000 can’t project on. The projector comes with a two-axis, rotat­able lens design that allows users to position the lens to face practically anywhere. The projector works normally, projecting forwards onto a wall or screen, but can also project upwards onto the ceiling or even downwards on the floor. Its adjustable neck gives you the ability to independently rotate and move the lens in any direction, facing it anywhere, as well as in any orientat...

Is resurrecting Google’s BookBot the need of the hour?

Everyone in Silicon Valley is trying to design something straight out of the future. We treat science and technology as the end all be all of our issues and rightfully so, but here is an unpopular opinion – do we REALLY need technology in every aspect of our lives to make it better? A decade ago, robots doing all our tasks were just a thing of movies and today we don’t go a day without interacting with a robot – think about it, even if you call a place there is a 99% chance an automated voice ...

This Apple Pencil-based dropper is a DJ that drops data instead of beats!

Remember the simpler childhood days of using the dropper to pick a color and spill it *carefully* on another sheet? We then advanced from papers to MS Paint and I doubt any of us were able to master that virtual dropper. Now we are in the Apple era but the nostalgia of the simple dropper is not lost and that was the inspiration for the iSpoid – a conceptual dropper that picks up data instead of colors and we are here for this!The motion of using a dropper to transfer colors was reinterpreted wit...

Alienware’s new gaming mouse looks like a peripheral from the periphery of the universe

If you want to see form explorations at their best, you better either look at transportation design, or at computer mice. The computer mouse, which has evolved so much since its debut in 1964, still pretty much does the same thing, but has seen improvements in function and evolutions in form that make it a great form-study product. Mice are almost always designed to be ergonomic, but they can be as basic-looking as Apple’s Magic Mouse, to absurd-yet-comfortable like the Logitech MX Vertical, o...

The humble vacuum cleaner gets an inclusive makeover

Over 10 million adults in the UK alone are affected by arthritis and musculoskeletal conditions making it extremely difficult to even do basic household activities as they get older. Regular home appliances are not always designed keeping in mind the independence of our aging generations and cleaning is a tedious task for those who are in pain with the slightest movement. Vacuuming causes wrist ache, back pain and is heavy to push around – Vivo aims to solve this problem with a concept vacuum cl...

Duo imagines a world where the smartphone is made up of a modular computer + detachable displays

Think of the Duo as an all-in-one PC that just needs a display to work. This separation means you can attach your all-in-one PC to a handheld screen, a large 4K monitor, or even a projector, alternating between them while still having all your data in the same place. Scale that down to something handheld and you’ve got the Duo, a Phonebloks-style concept that has two simple parts… The display, and everything else.The ‘everything else’ or as designer Roc H Biel calls it, the ‘electronics module’ ...

Made of 45% bio-based material, this solar phone charger imitates a sunflower!

Everyone loves a bunch of pretty flowers and sunflowers are one of my favorites, I do wonder why I haven’t received any. Guess XD Design felt the same since sunflowers were the inspiration for their ‘Sunshine Solar Charger’. Yes, the charger looks like a bunch of sunflowers facing towards the sun, and they do so because they make use of solar energy and not electricity to charge your phones!Equipped with a 25000mAh rechargeable lithium battery that stores all that sun-sourced energy, the solar c...

I vote that all power banks should have videogames built into them…

It’s corny but also a stroke of genius. Peepsquare’s power banks come with videogames built right into them so you can leave your phone alone while it’s charging. The 8000 mAh power bank comes with an impressive 416 games built into it, quite like those third-party Gameboy cartridges back in the day.

Bosch’s Virtual Sun Visor uses an LCD screen to cut the glare without cutting your view

Its animated-PowerPoint video editing aside, Bosch does make a pretty good point. We’ve innovated in every part of the car, except the sin visor. The visor, although designed with good intent, is often obstructive, as it reduces your visibility in its effort to shade your eyes. The fact that you can’t wear heavily tinted sun-glasses while driving (in most parts of the world) just further aggravates the matter because you’re faced with one of two issues when you’re driving with the sun shining ...

This minimal humidifier is a safer alternative to traditional incense!

Hyang is an incense humidifier, that replaces the traditional incense!It features an incense-like stick, as well as a base incense holder. You simply fill the base holder with water and add a fragr...

Meet the Alienware Concept UFO, a handheld Windows 10 gaming device modeled on the Switch

Designed literally to be the Switch of PC Gaming, Alienware debuted their Concept UFO at CES this year. They’ve, however, been very quick to point out that this is still a very nascent concept and may look nothing like the prototype they’re showing… but they’re serious about developing a handheld PC that’s dedicated towards Windows-based gaming.For long, Alienware has been considered one of the oldest and most renowned gaming brands, with laptops and CPUs that cater specifically to the PC Gamer....

The Chubby Buttons Bluetooth Remote does the job wherever touchscreen interfaces can’t

The very antithesis of touch-sensitive displays, the Chubby Buttons aims to serve you wherever touchscreens fail. Be it in the bathroom when your fingers are wet, or while bicycling when you can’t really look down at your screen to see what you’re pressing, or if you’re hitting the slopes and the gloves are too thick for you to operate a touch interface, the Chubby Buttons Remote and its significantly large buttons help you navigate playback in a way that’s easy, swift, and extremely intuitive. ...

This handheld Granular Synthesizer builds complex audioscapes… using grains of sound

There are a few ways to look at music. You could look at it as an aggregate of instruments, so each instrument is a unit contributing to the end result, or you could look at it as an aggregate of frequency sources, where each instrument is responsible for contributing a certain frequency to the track. The bass guitar supplies the lower-end, the hi-hat gives the rich treble, and the vocalist’s voice covers a portion of the in-between mids. Yet another way to look at audio, and break it down, is b...

Ultra-thin USB powered light box

A light box is an excellent tool for illustrators. It allows you to place a sheet of paper with a sketch on it, then place another piece of paper on top of it, and trace the original drawing. A lot of artists do a pencil sketch on a sheet of paper, then use a nicer piece of paper to trace the sketch in ink. Andreas Ekberg, a wonderful illustrator who makes beautiful stenciled skateboards (like this Jackhammer Jill deck) and other things, told me about this USB light board. I already have a li...
