Credo E-Bone: Eco friendly and sustainable concept bus by Peter Simon

Under - Industrial Design, Technology

Credo E-Bone, a brainchild of Peter Simon for his industrial design degree project at the University of West Hungary, is an environmentally friendly and sustainable public transportation solution. The concept bus is powered by hydrogen fuel cell technology with four in-wheel motors. The bus shell is made of lightweight composite plastic which is a bone-like material composition with varied density close to joints. The lightweight construction makes the concept energy-efficient.

The organic design is quite supplemental to the overall bus concept that catches attention immediately. It would be interesting to see such concepts becoming reality to make public transport greener.

Brother’s AirScouter – Retinal Imaging Display (RID) prototype

Under - Industrial Design, Media, Technology

This wearable head-mounted display concept is not new but projecting something directly onto the retina sure is. Brother’s AirScouter wearable Retinal Imaging Display (RID) prototype, shown at the Brother World Japan 2010, creates a mysterious effect, making it look as if there’s a 16-inch screen floating one meter in front of the eyes, and the scenery behind the screen seems transparent as well.

This display uses the ‘persistence of vision’ effect to project pictures onto the retina. It does this by shining a light, at a level of brightness that’s safe for the eyes, and moving the light at high speed. The images projected on the retina are recognized by the visual sense, making it seem just as if they are floating just in front of the eyes. Learn more

Amazing piece of technology, just that how one would look making a video call on this once Smartphone connection is possible or using an iPad style app in public? I never used a Bluetooth wireless headset (and will not either) having seen how people look while talking and staring at walls (or sometimes at you) in the middle of a corridor or sitting alone at a table in a restaurant or in a bus. Apologise to those who love wearing these – it is just that I can’t.

Ora-Ïto: Industrial Design at its best

Under - Industrial Design, Inspiration

Some selected furniture designed by Ito Morabito.

Behind the Ora-Ïto brand is a creative young French designer (Ito Morabito) whose provocative ideas ensured his rapid ascent to the very top of the design world. At the beginning of his career he presented his designs and ideas for the virtual products, undersigned by known brands on his own website. People began ordering products which did not exist. Large companies like Louis Vuitton, Swatch, Apple and Levi’s, could have sued the young pretender but were so impressed by his designs, that they hired him instead.

Ora-Ïto characterizes his recognizable style as simplexity; combining simplicity and complexity. His concepts are futuristic and provocative. Today, he designs for the world’s biggest brands, such as Heineken, Adidas, Ogo, Artemide, B&B, Cappellini, L’Oréal, Toyota, LaCie, Danone, Christofle, Ballantine’s, Sagem and many more.

Square mobile payment system

This was evident as mobile platform becoming more accessible. We have seen iPad replacing hotel menus so why can’t the same device be used for paying the bill!

Introduced by Twitter founder Jack Dorsey back in December last year, Square payment system makes it possible to accept payment cards on any (internet enabled mobile) device with an audio input jack.
