When we stop to think about the ways technology has impacted our lives, the obvious ones like the workplace, entertainment and how we learn and consume information comes to mind. But what we don’t realise is just how much it has affected our personal space. With more and more people in the world, there’s less space to work with and so more efficient means of using this space is needed. Of all these spaces, the kitchen has undergone the greatest change. What was the home of cookbooks and large unwieldy stoves has now become sleeker and better designed.
YouTube dropped a little bombshell of a news announcement yesterday on their blog when they released two new changes for embedded videos. The first is the addition of HD Preview Images for videos higher than 480p. But the potentially-huge news is that YouTube has enabled publishers to remove the YouTube logo from embedded videos. New HD YouTube Preview/Thumbnail Images First things first, the HD Preview Images.

Digital wrist-wear has come a long way since calculator watches. Now there are products like the I’m Watch and multiple wearable cases that turn the iPod Shuffle into a high-tech ticker . But if none of the current offerings are doing it for you, maybe this one will. The iWatch 2 is an iOS-compatible wristwatch that has enough features to make James Bond himself jealous…
I received a handful of iPhone 4 cases to review over the last several months, including the Crimson Aluminum Frame Case . Its design and form-factor set it apart from the rest of the crowd. My hope was the design would allow better reception while not compromising on usability or protection….we shall see.
by Edwin Since we live in an era where most things are motorized or at least have some sort of robotics function built-in, don’t you think it makes sense to have a Motorized Inversion Table as well for fitness buffs? This rather unique inversion table will be able to gently recline and return to its upright position at the touch of a button. Just what benefits does inversion therapy bring to the table? For starters, it helps alleviate back pain through the decompression of the spine, helping relieve pressure on nerves as well as realign the ligaments that support the back.
A sport lover would always like to go for such a gadget that is versatile and hence can resist all accidents. For instance, an athlete would prefer such a gadget that does not break easily and has a robust body. Same way a swimmer would prefer a waterproof or water resistant gadget that must have a waterproof and tight shield on it.
by Edwin When you mention the word “robot”, what comes into your mind? Most of us would have thought of characters from Transformers, or even Go-Bots (if you know what I am talking about, then you’re about in the same age bracket as me), and perhaps even the Terminator. Those who think that Chucky is scary enough might want to check out this particular robot that mimics a human baby, positively sending chills down my spine when I look at the YouTube video of it in “action”. Created by the UK’s Chris Clarke, this robotic baby will writhe around, struggling in its crib in such a convincing manner that we have taken yet another step closer to the uncanny valley.

Motion picture special effects, steampunk finery, live action role playing games, cosplay, historical reenactments, and the theater all rely on props to help tell the story. For the enthusiast, building a prop is a great way to channel enthusiasm for a particular subject and expand the user experience.
Not a Pamphlet, It’s a Smartphone Clutch your pearls because I’m about to say something amazing – nanoparticles! Yes these tiny, near invisible objects can revolutionize the bio medical, optical and electronic fields so designer Ilshat Garipov put pen to paper and came up with the Smartphone Booklet – a disposable phone as thin as a cardboard made possible by switching from traditional silicon to nanoparticles.
Posted by Ray | 20 Jan 2012 | Comments (15) Spanish designer José Hurtado started out as an architect before shifting his focus to industrial design. Among the projects in his newly-launched portfolio, one project in particular jumped out: the "Twist" bicycle concept . Twist [is] not just a bike, [it] is a union between people. Sometimes a change of direction in your life helps you to find yourself. With Twist, the change of direction will lead you to meet and enjoy the people, like you, who love cycling, mobility and [a healthy lifestyle].
It seems like every day there’s a new case out for the iPhone, and today is no different. Today I submit for your perusal a review of an aluminum bumper-style case from Japanese design firm Draco Design , the Draco IV . Is there enough here to differentiate it from the competition, or is it just another also-ran?
By David Ponce I’m being overly enthusiastic here. I mean, lets face it: who still has paper?… Well, ok, maybe a couple of you still do, and I guess that’s why the iConvert exists. I guess my point is that no one is excited about paper; it’s just one of those figments of a distant past we still have to live with.

Jan 16 If futuristic digital designs are you thing, then have a look at this latest gizmo presented by Samsung at the CES trade show in Las Vegas.

Samsung digital window can be installed wherever the user wishes: in the kitchen, to check out various recipes, in the bedroom, for early news in the morning or in the hallway, instead of a regular window.
