Onida Phone for India, Meant to Cost Less Than $5


Philippe Daguillon is aware of the problems that India is facing and imagined a handset that will fit this market. He created the Onida cellphone, a very affordable handset, that’s supposed to cost less than $2. In India 80% of the population lives with $2 a day and can be illiterate, according to the designer.

This is a phone for illiterate persons, share in the Indian community and packing a low price. I don’t mean any of these as an insult to India, these are pure statistics. The cover for the Onida phone is also a wallet and as you can see the device is very simple, with a small display showing signal, battery, time and carrier, with some numeric keys, a messaging button, a call and end call button and an up and down button. Considering the fact that the idea of the Aakash tablet with a $35 price tag came to life in India, maybe this phone will be turned to reality, too.

I know we have a lot of readers from India. How do you feel about this phone and do you consider it will help the poor population of the country?

SoberPixels Red Racer


SoberPixels Red Racer could be the next generation of F1 Racing Cars. It’s a futuristic car that blends the aesthetic of F1 racing car and neon-powered engine. The body of the car has been designed extremely low, suitable for indoor racetracks, perhaps that’s why the designer uses white rubber tires. Sleek and sharp lines of the car’s body makes it runs extremely fast. Ready, Set, Go!

Designer : Ronald de Groot

Buoyancy-Road, Automatic lane separator


There are times when sudden raining or snowing can make central lane markings on the road become invisible, thus causing traffic congestion or worst, traffic accidents. Buoyancy-Road design tries to solve this issue by automatically rising lane separator when water or snow obscures a road’s lane markings. This buoyant lane separator emerges due to its buoyant quality, therefore, when water or snow covers the road over the height of the traffic lane, it will raise this device automatically. In this way, drivers will still be able to recognize the position of the lane markings. Buoyancy-Road system can also be activated manually in the case of a temporary lane reversal.

Designer : Joh Minhoo

Tiny Car Tower of Power


What you’re about to take a look at is a vehicle that may be shorter and more to the point than any car you’ve yet experience. This is the eSetta, inspired by the legendary BMW Isetta, made to be as compact as possible with its intent being set for the car sharing environment across the earth. Will its bright red and yellow accents be enough to entice you to get tiny?

This vehicle is inductively charged at sharing hubs which sit around your city, these places being where, like similar bicycle hubs, you’ll be able to unlock and drive a vehicle to your next destination and back – no sweat! The front door has a slide and rotate ability that allows you the driver to enter and exit via the sidewalk – frosting on the pie!

Have a peek and see if you’d be willing to ride one of these sassy little numbers around your local city!

Samsung Galaxy S3 with a 360 Degree view of video


This is the Samsung Galaxy S3, which design by 4.8 inch device with a 720p display and Super AMOLED Plus technology involved and a quad core Exynos 4412 processor at 1.5 GHz, an 8 megapixel camera at the back with dual LED flash and 1080p video recording at 40 fps and optional slow motion mode (qHD resolution at 150 fps).

These specs seem to fit those detailed by the latest rumors and also keeping up with them, this concept comes with a ceramic backing in black and white. There’s also an aluminum chassis in the mix for extra strength. Software buttons are also in the mix, those typical Android 4.0 ones below the display.

Designer: Tyler Lehmann

Smart Phone Pamphlet Design


This is an example of the Smartphone Booklet, a disposable phone thin as a cardboard and imagined by Ilshat Garipov. The designer envisions a handset that you can throw after using and that’s able to unfold like a pamphlet with each side being used for a specific application or function.

Manufacturers will be able to cut the device to any size and if you get tired of the Booklet or if it wears out you can recycle it. No problems with storage here, since everything is based on cloud technology and there are no worries about the battery, since the sun will provided the need energy, absorbed by nanoparticles. The only problem with this cardboard/paper/nanoparticle phone is that it looks pretty fragile, as if it’ll break apart or tear any minute now.

iPhone 5 concept by ADR Studio


I want to see a new iPhone 5. I suspect it's will like concept or not? Example designing by ADR Studio, this model comes with a capacitive home button, aluminum unibody case, a 4.3 inch screen and a dual core Apple A6 processor.

It’s also got iOS 5.1 and iCloud, while its body looks more compact than ever, so it may have a thickness lower than 8.5mm (Galaxy S II thickness). The elongated capacitive Home button is something that people have been talking about for a while now, so it would be a pity not to capitalize on that innovation.

This week I’ve heard that Apple finally decided to go with Samsung as its next CPU maker, although TSMC seemed like the favourite for making the A6 for a while… Also, inside sources are saying that the same case size of the iPhone 4S will be kept, but the screen will be made bigger, so maybe we’re talking edge to edge display here. These are all usual rumors, that we’ll be hearing for a year now, till the iPhone 5 gets released…

Hyundai Motorcycle, stretch and contract concept


Inspired by musculature, this concept evokes a fluidic sculpture from the upper and lower sections intertwined together. The whole body is made up of materials that stretch and contract just like your muscles do and enables steering without any kind of assistive apparatus. When turning a corner, the entire body relaxes so that it can smoothly corner, and when accelerating, it contracts to form a rigid body. I’m totally intrigued by the idea. Not so sure about the design though.

Designer: Min Seong Kim
