Very cool new tablet design by Lenovo! If I were Apple, I think products like this would make me at least a little bit nervous. I'm not yet convinced the performance of the projector is outstanding but I'd like to try it out before making any final judgement.
I realize we've already covered Ross Lovegrove in our Tuesday Tribute but I recently found out Bernhardt Design celebrated its 125th anniversary by commissioning designers to create new furniture pieces for their brand and I thought the Anne Chair by Mr. Lovegrove was particularly interesting.
In his own words, "When thinking about this project, my starting point was the American courthouse chair. These chairs were such a visible part of the American landscape because of their very powerful presence. Using this historical reference, I wanted to create a chair that is contemporary and a reflection of my design vocabulary."
Interesting interaction design model by Microsoft. It's not exactly new but it does look more sophisticated and comprehensive than previous iterations I've seen.
This interesting iPhone accessory by Relonch aims to bridge the gap between iPhones (and the photography-base social media apps that go with them) and high-resolution DSLR cameras (which take awesome photos that are sometimes difficult to share with friends and family). The user's iPhone docks into the 41-megapixel Relonch camera which takes print quality 'fancy photos' and stores them directly on your iPhone for easy sharing. Check out the video below for more info.
Really interesting wearable technology concept by Nixie who has developed the Quadcopter Drone to be the first drone camera to fit on your wrist. The concept is interesting and the technology is cool (assuming it works; all they have showcased here are renderings and animation) but I'm having a hard time envisioning scenarios that would highly demand this type of application. Their video does a good job of illustrating a few potential scenarios that make sense but they don't seam like common scenarios that would resonate with most users. Maybe I'm just being skeptical. I suppose time will tell.
