Hydra Modern Piano, by Apostol Tnokovski

Posted in D. Produto, Mobiliario by Bruna Miskinis on 07/16/2010

I’m usually against modifications in classical instruments, but this piano is amazing!

The lines flow perfectly, even when the piano it’s open. Totally awesome!

Daywriter, Nightwriter, by Peter Freund

Posted in Arquitetura, Customizados, D. Produto, Interior, Mobiliario by Bruna Miskinis on 09/12/2009

Touting itself as the world’s first interactive furniture, the Daywriter (as the name suggests) is used for displaying messages during the day. But the story gets brighter with the Nightwriter. This one is like a florescent glow-in-the-dark type of board. Scratch on the words and watch them glow! Naturally you can erase all your messages and get creative everyday.

SONEA Produces Energy From Noise

Posted in D. Produto, Eco, Energias Limpas, Protótipos by Bruna Miskinis on 09/12/2009

Making use of omnipresent but wasted potential energy sources is what the green movement is all about. The SONEA, designed by Jihoon Kim, Boyeon Kim, Myung-Suk Kim, and Da-Woon Chung, makes use of one of the most annoying, otherwise-useless forms of energy out there: noise. Think about how much noise there is when you walk out into a crowded city street at any given moment of the day. And it’s all for naught. Imagine if there was a reverse speaker of sorts that was able to capture all that wasted noise and store it as usable energy. The SONEA design uses a noise capturing surface paired with a sonic electric tranducer that converts the noise energy into electricity, which is then stored via an electric cell module. The device’s rating is 30 watts per 1 captured decibal.

ShakEnergy Rechargeable Battery Concept

Posted in D. Produto, Eco, Energias Limpas by Bruna Miskinis on 09/12/2009

The folks from Mintpass have created an innovative ShakEnergy battery concept that uses a human element to maintain their charge. With five components inside that include a rechargeable nickel metal hydrate battery, a shaft, a coiled bobbin, a spring-loaded coil-magnet and a rubber shock-absorber, the ShakEnergy’s innovation is that all it needs is a vigorous shake to charge itself. The ShakEnergy battery has about half of the charge of a normal AA NiMH and can also be used with a normal charger. We’re craving for a set already, but so far, there’s no info concerning a release date.

Tactility Concept Mobile Phone for the Blind, by Toshiba

Posted in D. Produto, Protótipos by Bruna Miskinis on 09/12/2009

A bit simpler than the touchscreen B-Touch Braille mobile, the Tactility features a Braille  keypad to help blind users make phone calls. As mobile phone technology gets more and more advanced, it threatens to leave out blind users who have obvious obstacles when navigating through complex menus and advanced keypads. On the other hand, the simple, Braille-based interface would certainly be much quicker and easier to use than most modern phones. The concept designed by Siwei Liu also includes a ring on the bottom so that users could hang the phone around their neck, having it accessible at all times.

Light Drops, by Sang-Kyun Park

Posted in D. Produto, Eco, Energias Limpas by Bruna Miskinis on 09/11/2009

Rain power, baby.  The LightDrops umbrella transforms the potential energy of falling water into electrical energy by using a PDVF conductive membrane. This electrical energy then powers an array of LEDs, making the umbrella glow bright in the dark.  Designed by Sang-Kyun Park, the LightDrops Umbrella is both stylish and energy conscious, a symbol of all the power in the world that we can harness if we put our minds to it.  Beyond the symbolic, we have to admit– this umbrella looks nothing short of fresh.
