Virtual Treadmill

The major difference between conventional treadmill and this 'Voyage' treadmill is the virtual experience you can get like you are really running on the road. While on a normal treadmill you can only run for minutes and minutes and so on and it was quite boring.

Water Purifying Raincoat

A very creative concept, this raincoat holds. Purifying rain water instantly is literally a strange but useful concept for those who lacks pure water in their territory. This raincoat can collect some amount of rain water with the help of tall collars and can be purified via some built-in charcoal filters and some sort of chemical purification.

The Future is Solar Roadways

Solar roads are going to emerge as future roadways to enable energy re-usability. These roads are about to take shape in trial as parking lots to test its compatibility and functionality. And the real plan is to implement them as 12 by 12 wide road lanes which has LED warning system that alerts drivers where ever desired and it can illuminate the roads in the dark. Also the heating system prevents the stagnation of snow and water on the roads. And the main advantage is these roads will generate some energy when vehicles travel over them. Despite of some setbacks these roads can revive the future roadways.

Plants Cool your PC with Planter PC


Has anyone of you thought that green plants are capable of running your PC? I am sure no one of you has not. But one designer who is more concerned about our mother earth, developed a brilliant PC that can work with the energy of green plants. This PC design showcases a whole new concept in PC design. The I/O devices are common here but the processor set up differs completely. As I said this PC runs on plant energy, so basically a planter setup is required. This one is a water proof setup where provision for seeds and soil is provided. You can choose your choice of plants like creepers, flower plants etc. This planter is connected to regular processor setup in the form of slots [see the pictures].

Plantbook: The Oxygen Notebook

This notebook stands as a technological leap towards eco-friendly gadgets. Imagine a notebook which can be rolled and carried away. And the most important thing is it can work with oxygen which eradicates the use of electricity which in turn reduces power and is eco-friendly.
When the notebook is rolled out completely, one can find a tag like structure which is a battery indicator. Of course, charging this notebook is nothing but immersing the notebook in to a bucket of fresh water! The cylindrical part of the notebook is incorporated with the entire mechanism that can use the oxygen in the water to power up the notebook through electrolysis method. And the status of charging can be perceived via indicator tag. If water is not available to you, no worry! This thing can be charged through solar energy too! Quite impressive.

Kitchen waste helps you to cook Food

Recycling is the concept of creating something out of nothing. We can make use of junk material by creating something useful out of it. And this system didn't leave even kitchen junk go waste. Electrolux, a good manufacturer of home appliances designed this kitchen biodigester named Celsius. All this can do is, it can convert the kitchen waste which is organic into heat energy which in turn can be used to cook the food. For this purpose,  the device is equipped with 3 accessories for heating, boiling and juicing purposes.

Hubless Bike with a Motor

Designing a bike with out spokes or hubs is an imaginary concept but Synapse made it possible. Though many people believes it cannot be possible real time, one should note that, we are in the world of making things that are impossible as possible. This bike too comes to that sort. Surprisingly you need not use your strength to ride this. Instead, it is equipped with an electric motor to enhance riding capabilities. The wheels are made with very dynamic materials to withstand the friction and the body of the bike is made with bio-genetic materials which is eco-friendly as well as strong.

EOLE: The Wind Energy Watch

We have solar watches to those who prefer saving energy sources. But we can't imagine a wind watch that can display time by blowing air on it. Don't worry, you need not continuously blow the air to make it charge or something. If you wanna know time at any instance, just blow air gently, and the wheel rotates, then time will be displayed on the icy blue display in digital format. When the wheel is rotated the mechanical energy is converted to electrical energy to display the short visual sequence. With in a few seconds the display will be disappeared to reveal a black dial again.

MacBook of 2020 Concept


Put aside your critical ego for a moment and enjoy designer Tommaso Gecchelin’s vision of an Apple MacBook circa 2020. Keyboards, mice and 2-dimensional screens are passe. Hit the jump for the future.
Envisage a computer nearly paper thin, able to shape shift from metal to plastic. Thanks to molecular manufacturing, a micro-lattice nano material enables you to shrink the dimensions to fit into your pocket. Nano technology miniaturizes familiar technologies into thin sheets of composites, each serving a separate function. One layer is photo voltaic for infinite battery life. One layer projects ultrasound waves for tactile feedback. Another layer works like a pelican cam to capture the real world in 3D while a separate layer works like a holographic emitter. And of course, everything is wireless. No ports, no cables. I only have one question. Will it blend?

Water powered Lamp

Water generally extinguishes light source but water as a source for lighting is very strange and thinkable concept. This strange concept is made possible by a Japanese designer making an eco friendly lamp. Just feed this lamp with a few drops of water to make it glow for some time. As water is abundant any where (compared to other resources), this lamp serves very well. The key process involved is the usage of a hydroelectric battery which extracts electrical energy from water. The battery is a carbon stick with magnesium powder which is very economical combination making the product quite affordable. The name of this product is WAT.

Transparent TV

Transparency is the current desirable trend most of us are wanting. We came across transparent mobiles, transparent speakers and many other stuff related to transparency that attracted most gadgetians. Transparent TV is similar one in the same row. Transparent TV is a frameless glass piece that can show you the background of the environment when not in use. However it will display solid images when the TV is switched on with high contrast quality picture and with rich color reproduction. This transparent television uses both LCD technology and the latest TOLED technology. Eagerly waiting for it to release in to the market.

Tree Charger

Charging stations are very common at airports, railway stations where a bulk ports are released and many phones and portable devices can be connected in a row. Same concept applied here but with a designer touch. Resulting in a trendy designer 'Tree Charger'. These chargers if kept in a hotel rooms, residences and pubs give really awesome look. The green cords can be pulled out when necessary can can be plugged in to the portable device. The number of devices increase, the color of the light display varies.
