This Microsoft Ultrabook converts into a gaming workstation with the reinforcer dock!

The Microsoft XYV concept beautifully bridges the gap between immensely capable gaming laptops and the conveniently thin media laptops. In the ever-adapting world of laptops, if you want a laptop that carries desktop-level of performance, it’s likely that you will have to compromise on both aesthetics and practicality, which is far from ideal when using the laptop in a more conventional and casual manner, where a thinner laptop would be more suited.The Microsoft XYV concept is a sleek and compac...

MUJI X Sensible 4’s Self-Driving Bus premiered in Finland. We got a chance to sit in it!

It’s only natural that the world’s first fully autonomous self-driving bus would come out of Finland. Finland, believe it or not, is often considered to be the ‘Silicon Country’ that gave the world Nokia and pretty much set the very blueprint for mobile communications. Nokia was founded in Finland, and for over two grand decades before Apple launched the iPhone, Nokia was the standard to beat. In fact, there’s a high likelihood that your first phone was a Nokia (I know mine was). Post-2010 whe...

The Windows OS is perfect for gadgets with folding displays

Think about it. We’ve been using Windows with large screens almost all our life. It still remains the most popular desktop/laptop OS, used by people of all ages, and even though Google’s ChromeOS and Apple’s MacOS are strong contenders, there’s a certain framework that Windows uses that’s universal. A start button and taskbar at the bottom, files and folders appearing as windows that can be minimized and maximized, and a screen that’s conducive to power-usage and multitasking. Windows is the per...

Microsoft’s flattest, most flexible, functional mouse yet

Curved when you want, flat when you need, the Arc Surface mouse by Microsoft follows a format it set a long time ago. The mouse comes as a flat, remote-ish shape and can bend/curve/arc into an ergonomic mouse when needed. When you’re done, the mouse unfolds and becomes flat again.The Arc Surface mouse, however, has a key difference that makes it rather useful and advanced. It ditches the clicking keys and scroll wheel for a touch surface, much like Apple’s Magic Mouse. The surface lets you perfo...

10 Classic Typefaces Every Designer Should Own (and where to get them for free!)

Just like all design trends, font styles come and go, but there are a number of timeless typefaces that will never go out of fashion. Eric Gill, Adrian Frutiger and Max Miedinger are celebrated names in the graphic design industry, who created many of the typefaces that have been used by professional designers for several decades. Their fonts allow you to produce fresh typography no matter what century you’re in, so you can rely on them throughout your design career. Back when I created a si...

Microsoft’s Hololens 2 all sorts of futuristic awesomeness

The Hololens, when it released four long years back, made some great promises and lived up to a fair amount of them. However, after 4 years of being used, developed for, and pitted against competition, the Hololens 2 has a set of well-defined milestones to achieve. Microsoft spent a significant amount of time figuring out where the Hololens would enhance professions and lives, and even an incredible amount on the Hololens’ internal technology that they claim is so state-of-the-art that the Hol...

Sphero's BB-8 Rolled into Robot Fame. Their RVR Prototypes Open Up a Much Wider Universe of Possibilities.

Sphero's RVR prototypes expand on the functionality that made their BB-8 bot a household name. Late one night in 2015, the Sphero team gathered in their Boulder, Colorado, offices to watch Star Wars Celebration Live, a 30-hour live stream hyping the first new Star Wars movie to come out in 10 years. The team knew something other fans didn't: this would be fans' first look at BB-8, a lovable new droid character. Disney had licensed their team to make it, but no one had spoken publicly about it...

What if Microsoft made a smartphone 15 years before Apple did?

The year is, well 1995, and Windows has just released an operating system that defines the company’s future, and pretty much the future of computing too. I’m talking about the extremely revolutionary (for its time) Windows 95. The graphical user interface based software spread like wildfire, becoming arguably the first professionally and personally used OS for Microsoft. Just for a second imagine if the past were different. If mobile computing devices did exist in 1995, and Microsoft beat Apple ...

Lawmakers are pushing gadget manufacturers with the Right to Repair movement

The amount of electronics that we are throwing away each year is growing at an exponential rate, and this toxic trash is hazardous to both people and the planet. What are we supposed to do when our smartphones or other gadgets stop working? According to lawmakers in the United States and Europe, there is one option that should be available instead of getting rid of them— fixing them. Lawmakers in at least 18 states— and the European Parliament— believe that manufacturers should make it a priori...

Download Vincent van Gogh’s Collection of 500 Japanese Prints, Which Inspired Him to Create “the Art of the Future”

Vincent van Gogh never went to Japan, but he did spend quite a bit of time in Arles, which he considered the Japan of France. What made him think of the place that way had to do entirely with aesthetics. The Netherlands-born painter had moved to Paris in 1886, but two years later he set off for the south of France in hopes of finding real-life equivalents of the "clearness of the atmosphere and the gay colour effects" of Japanese prints. These days, we've all seen at least a few examples of tha...

The Top Consumer Electronic Products and Concepts of 2018

As the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is upon us, we thought that now would be the best time to review what trended in 2018, as we also take a look at how that may shape our 2019.

Microsoft’s Prediction of 2019 From 2009

In a video uncovered this week, Microsoft presented their predictions for the tech world in 2019—back in 2009. While some of their ambitions came true—foldable phones, gesture controls and more—much of it was too hopeful. The graphics have certainly exceeded their expectations, but innovation is moving a bit slower; we don’t have interactive newspapers or translucent and ultra-thin screens, yet.

According to experts (from Microsoft, ADAY, Google, Ideo and more), design themes for next year will be more personal—in part as a backlash to people being “mere data points” in recent years. From products becoming more conscious and personalized to a shift away from “emotionally subdued design,” 2019 is looking to be a little more about humans. Read about the nine predictions at FastCo.
