USB Concepts by dialog05

USB Concepts by dialog05 mixes conceptual art, USB technology, and hint of iPod sensibility.

Heineken World Bottle: Green Means More than the Color of the Bottle

Heineken has created one of the most ingenious products I’ve seen in days. As you can see from the image above, the new Heineken World Bottle or WOBO can be used as a building material after its contents have been consumed. This product presents a real challenge to my moral compass. One perspective is that […]

Phonofone II by Science + Sons

OK, I’m now on the Phonofone bandwagon. I think I’ve read no less than 10 posts on the topic which will all tell you the same thing I’m about to tell you: The Phonofone by Science and Sons is a ceramic amplification system for you iPod. This mechanism uses passive horn acoustics to amplify you […]

Cocoon by 02

Cocoon is a really fun all-in-one phone that I saw recently. There are a number of features about the phone that I like. First, it comes standard with an MP3 player and a 2 megapixel camera. Pretty standard nowadays, but good. But wait, what’s that on the outside of the phone? There is a very […]

Gorenje Refrigerator With Swarovski Crystals: The Agelina Jolie of Kitchen Appliances

This may be one of the flashiest, most insanely gorgeous, and at the same time functional gadgets I have ever seen. A Few minutes after I spent time with this refrigerator, I immediately thought of Angelina Jolie. When I think of Angelina, (we’re on a first name basis, you know) I think of beauty, I […]

Muon Speakers: Quite Possibly The Finest Stereo Equipment Ever Made

Recently, I’ve come upon the Muon speaker. Muon speakers are, quite frankly, the most opulent speakers ever made at an unreasonable price of $145,000. Mind you, this price would get you a Ferrari with a pretty decent sound system. But, if you are extremely wealthy and are an audiophile who knows no bounds then you […]

Balancing Bowls from Royal VKB: Stupidly Simple Measuring Device

I am in love with this product! These are the unbelievably simple measuring devices by Royal VKB called Balancing Bowls. Royal VKB, by the way, is a young Dutch kitchenware firm with a vast stable of talented designers. Their work really creates new rules for how you can eat serve and make food. It’s quite […]

Bell & Ross Watches’ Subtle Boxiness Wows

This past weekend, The New York Times had an advertising supplemental that was a slick magazine devoted to the watch, a dying breed of product design. Probably my favorite of the watches was the Bell & Ross BR01-97. It is, quite frankly, one of the ugliest watches I have ever seen, but there is no […]

The Aurea HDTV by Philips: A new Paradigm in Television Experience

Philips, one of the most innovative companies in the world, has taken a big leap of faith with their new Aurea HDTV. This is no ordinary 1980 x 1080p LCD HDTV. No. It adds two dimensions to the viewing experience that I think are unique with these types of televisions. First, the Aurea is surrounded […]

The P’9521 Mobile Phone from Porsche Design

I have not tried this phone out, so I cannot speak of the P’9521 by Porsche Design’s usability just yet, but I can say that they have some seriously stiff competition from the iPhone. What I can say that makes this phone unique is the designers’ decision to carve the phone out of a single […]
