Maybe not. One thing for sure, though, there is at least one person in this world who have gave thought about it and he is Australia-based veteran artist Kode LGX who specializes in digital art.

Design Studio Reimagined 60s Space-age Television And It Looks Fabulous

Thanks to the space race that spanned from the 50s to the 70s, it inspired a tsunami of sci-fi movies in the 60s-70s including classics like Barberella and Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. These movies, together with the then on-going space race, in turned inspired the designs of many things ranging from appliances to furniture to even automobile which resulted in products that oozes with space age details in them. When we say ‘space age’ details, it was the soft curves and minimalist outlook that we are talking about. It was an era that some of us reminiscences but not necessary thought has a place today, or so we thought. And then we stumbled upon the RE:MAKE WE:MAKE Teleavia P111 TV by Hogeun Jang of South Korea design studio, PDF Haus.

Apple Should Make This Pill-shape Concept Mac mini A Reality

With Apple CEO Tim Cook quoted saying that Mac mini will remain a staple of Apple’s lineup and it (the Mac mini) being tipped to have some much needed overhaul, industrial design student Louis Berger jumped at the opportunity to imagine what it will look like and boy, was the concept a drool-worthy we-want-it-to-be-real Mac mini. With Berger’s design, he completely reimagined what a Mac mini should look like. Gone is the now passé set top box-like design and in is a tube-like form with touchbar integration. Louis called it a “Taptop Computer Concept” that, unlike Apple’s current (and previous) designs, puts the Mac mini in the forefront of your desk.

Dadbag Adds Dad’s Beer Belly To Your Waist Without Actually Having One

I am not aware of any man who harbors the secret desire to have a beer belly, AKA dad bod. I mean, seriously, no man would want an oversized belly that looks like they are three months pregnant. However, in some rare instances, there are man folks who sought out this alternative look, but if you happen to be one of those odd balls, well then, the good news is, the Dadbag is here to help. Conceived by one Albert Pukies, the Dadbag is “made for people who want a Dad bod without eating junk food,” or perhaps, for those who simply love a dash of quirkiness in their life.

Laptop Stand That Is A Giant Heatsink Seems Like A Match Made In Heaven

I am sure you are familiar with heatsink. Typically milled out of aluminum, heatsink sole purpose is to mitigate overheating by dissipating heat quickly from high heat-generating equipment, such as a processor or LED elements. And it does so by introducing multiple fins which increases the surface area of a heat-conducting block. The science behind is, the more surface area there is, the quicker the heat can be taken away by the virtue of natural cooling. Understanding this and how much heat a laptop can produce, designer Bryan Wong has conceived a laptop stand that’s basically a giant-ass heatsink which kind of makes us go, “why we didn’t think of that!” Continue reading Laptop Stand That Is A Giant Heatsink Seems Like A Match Made In Heaven

Is Herrera Bladeless Drone Concept The Next Evolution In Drone Tech?

Consumer-grade drones are a dime a doze. It seems like everyone knows how to build one and sell it to you for a handsome amount. Most drones available today differentiate themselves with sophisticated software and sensors, but really, that is all there is to it. The drivetrain that makes them take flight is pretty much the same, comprising of, you know, brushless motors and rotors. While companies are cashing on this common technology, design engineer Edgar Herrera decided to challenge the status quo. And what he has proposed is, imho, a slap on capitalist businesses who seek little to no innovations and taking the easy way out to milk the market.

Someone Is Bringing Back Cassette Tape Player And It Looks Totally Rad

People, start digging out your collection of ancient cassette tapes from your closet or attic (or self serve store), because a new age cassette player maybe coming your way. Well, that’s if Lithuanian audiovisual art duo, BrainMonk, have their way with Elbow, the next-generation portable cassette player.

Bold MacBook Pro 2018 Concept Has Huge Touch Keyboard/Pad Hybrid

Now that Apple has implemented touch bar on its MacBook Pro, it wouldn’t be farfetched to think that in future, the entire keyboard, along with the touch pad, will be replaced by a huge-ass touch-based keyboard. Such a design is exactly what Seattle-based industrial design student Daniel Brunsteiner is driving with his MacBook Pro 2018 Concept. The concept is nothing less than audacious, but the possibility is very real and while regular users may not appreciate the huge touch canvas, creative professionals could benefit from it. Continue reading Bold MacBook Pro 2018 Concept Has Huge Touch Keyboard/Pad Hybrid

Elon Musk Envisioned Minority Report-style Highways, But Under The Ground

Elon Musk is a visionary who nobody really knows what goes inside the complex head of his, including his choice of personal companion. Since after Paypal, the man, as it seems, wants to turn the world into one that many sci-fi novels and movies have predicted and these futuristic tunnels dreamed up The Boring Company is one of them. The Boring Company is anything but boring. The ‘boring’ here is obviously does mean mundane, but rather, more of digging, tunnelling and stuff, and hence the futuristic tunnels pitched forth by the company.

A Skyscraper Suspended From An Asteroid Is The Craziest Idea Ever

In what could be the craziest proposition we heard this week, a New York architecture firm, Clouds Architecture Office, has proposed an outlandish architecture which will be truly the ‘world’s tallest building ever’. Dubbed Analemma Tower, this insane idea proposed the building to be built not on solid ground like every other mortal structures, but it will be, wait for it… suspended from an orbiting asteroid 31,068 miles (50,000 km) above the Earth (basically, a rock in outer space). Wait, what? An asteroid? Yes. You heard that loud and clear and if anything, it looks like the brilliant minds over at Clouds AO has done their homework.
