Case Study1: After giving a lot of effort, doing several editing on the paper according to time-to-time requirements, John, the chief editor of a printing agency, went to his client’s office to submit the final design. His client was very much satisfied with the job but wanted to change only few words here and there.

As a child of the 80, you can bet I watched Tron enough times to wear out the old VHS. I love that movie and blew more than a few weeks’ allowance playing the arcade game at the corner gas station. With the new Tron flick set to launch soon there are all manner of new toys and other items coming to market to rekindle those childhood memories.

It’s probably not an issue to most people, considering if you get a Sony-branded 3D-enabled HDTV, then you’d expect Sony’s 3D glasses to work with them. And, the same goes for any other 3D TV out there. But, what if you know a lot of people, with a lot of different brands of 3D HDTVs? You need to put on a different pair of 3D glasses all the time, and that could get pretty annoying after awhile. Thanks to Monster, we don’t need to worry about that anymore.

Students get another netbook options designed for them from HP. The HP Mini 100e Netbook is a 10-inch netbook powered by an Atom N455 processor and comes in a lightweight design. You can be sure that HP will preload education-friendly softwareto the netbook. There’s a light indicator which will turn on when the netbook connected to internet, you know, to let the teacher knows what the students doing in the class. Unfortunately HP Mini 100e didn’t adopt swivel display design while its hard drive also has no shock protection. The brightside for these is that HP able to offer the 100e with more affordable price. Yep, expected price for HP Mini 100e is below $300.

ColorWare is pretty notorious for doing custom paint jobs for your favorite gadgets. iPads and mobile phones, things like that. They were well known for their color-throwing ways, but notorious for the price tags that went along with it. And when they added HDTVs to their list of things that could be colored, eyebrows were raised. But now, well, we’re speechless.

Verizon, Motorola and Google have officially announced the DROID X, the latest Android smartphone and something of a multimedia powerhouse.  Powered by a 1GHz processor, the DROID X has 8GB of ROM, a 4.3-inch 854 x 480 capacitive touchscreen and will come with a 16GB microSD card preloaded for a total of 24GB storage; that’s useful, as the phone also has an 8-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording.

If you’ve ever stared angrily at your 27-inch iMac and asked what – beyond OS X – it’s ever done for you, then Belkin’s new AV360 Mini DisplayPort Converter may be just the ticket.  The converter box is capable of taking in an HDMI input – such as from a games console, set-top box or Blu-ray player – and outputting it in through a Mini DisplayPort connector.

There are hundreds of stories about ambitious people who quit their jobs to start businesses in their garages, worked 80-hour weeks, sold their companies and wound up rich. This isn't one of them.

Instead, this is about the growing number of average people who are spending their leisure hours selling hobbies and services on home computers and the Internet. With full-time salaries stretched thin and the cost of necessities rising, more people are looking for low-risk ways to earn extra income.

"The Web is a great place to shop and spend money, but it's pretty great for making money too," says Joanne Pratt, a Dallas-based adviser to the Small Business Administration on at-home commerce.

More than half of all small businesses are based at home, according to the SBA. "Computers, Internet access, cell-phone technology and simplified web-page design software have all become cheaper and faster in recent years, making it easier to launch some type of at-home enterprise without sinking a lot of money into it," says Simon Yates, senior analyst at Forrester Research.

Most people who run an at-home business use a desktop computer, connect to the Internet and live in a household where the average annual income is $65,000, reports Forrester. To manage the extra cash, many entrepreneurs are using accounting software programs for small businesses, such as Intuit's QuickBooks line, which generated revenue of $654 million last year -- a jump of nearly 100 percent since 2000.

"If you're the slightest bit entrepreneurial, you can reach large numbers of consumers instantly over the Internet, while key-word searches at Google let consumers reach you just as quickly," says Pratt. "The Web is an amazing marketplace." How can you turn your PC into a cash machine? It's easier than you think:

How often do you forget your cellphone at home? How often do you misplace it and how long does it take until you find it again? How many phones have you lost in public places? Well, the answer to this questions for many of us is “a lot”, so it’s time to solve this using the Samsung Proxima.

If Batman is proud to be a owner of a car that can split into becoming a motorbike, you can also have the same self-righteous through Lightweight concept, a lightweight futuristic car that features the ability of transforming the rear wheels into two segway bikes, which is higher than the number of bikes Batman’s car can be. The key point of the car, being lightweight, has been achieved by comprising two parallel side panels and a combination of several cross panels. The cutting-edge design of the car is no less exciting at all than that of Batman, to some extent; it will be more alluring and acceptable to the users with its unique and realistic form. To sustain on the future condition when fuel would be a vital lacking, this concept car has been designed with maximum energy efficiency.

Located in a fascinating natural environment in Valle de Bravo, Mexico, Casa en el Bosue (or “the House in the Forrest”) comes from Parque Humano, an architecture company with a very captivating portfolio. This beautiful home is so perfectly integrated in the surrounding landscape and so elegantly camouflaged that it seems it has always been there. More information on the residence from the architects: “Two pavilions, unequal in size, are set in front of the pool area. The first and biggest one contains the living and dining spaces, kitchen and a working studio. The second one: two bedrooms. Each pavilion was carefully placed on the site, incorporating all the existing trees into the program and facing the most important views.Visitors are received under the protection of a steel enclosure, entering through a small door that leads to the living room, thereby emphasizing the contrast between the closed nature of the entrance and the full openness of the living spaces and the valley itself.”

Maybe you think that only TokyoFlash company designs the most incredible watches, but the truth is that this “analog” watch created by a spanish designer is a really nice piece of design. Far from other weird designs looking for extravagant, weird and complicated ways of showing the time, the Koko Muo show the time in an alternative plain and elegant way and it’s made entirely in titanium. The outer ring displays the minutes in a semicircle and the inner ring displays the hours with a broader semicircle that also shows the a.m. hours with a different color from the p.m. hours.

“I know it sounds kind of odd, but I strongly believe it is the future of product design” When the designer himself comments on his own concept in this way, what do you expect me to write? One thing for sure is, this might be the weirdest and the most unique concept I’ve ever written about.

“Endlesstime”, as the name suggests, is a never ending watch designed to represent the endless quality of time. The design is quite simple and clean for any user. The watch is made up of semi-transparent plastic which can be straightened if not tied up on your wrist. The watch is very flexible due to the magnets concealed in the band and it can easily fit on any wrist comfortably. Designer has given a twist in the middle of the watch for reminding the symbol of hourglass. The twist also shows the division of the hour and minute displayed on the clock. Also, there is no need for batteries as the clock receives satellite signals and automatically tunes the watch as per current time zone.

Voglreiter Auto Residence belongs to designer Markus Voglreiter and falls into our category of incredible design. The unusual car-home is located near Salzburg, Austria- unfortunately, although it looks like a house on wheels, it is not mobile. The architect came up with this idea after noticing the potential a 70’s style house had to offer and completely turned it around. It may look small, but this compact house doesn’t lack any of the comfort that comes with a common looking residence. Voglreiter accommodates two generations of families in two separate portions of the “vehicle”. Moreover, the project features sustainable technologies and energy saving systems. We think it would be very interesting to see how the “car” is lined up with all the other homes, creating an enormous contrast.  

This nextgen bed for the intesive-care unit in hospitals is designed to solve many problems of the current beds, easing the job of hospital staff and improving the lives of the patients during their stay. It’s created to free the room from cables by offering a single touch screen to show all the data and also a foot-operated interface panel to enable hands-free operation. The bed is able to be set into nearly any position and inclination, with a special interest in the seat position, makes it easier to get in and out of the bed for the patient and prevents certain complications with the ventilation. The bed is also equipped with many handles that allow it to be guided, pushed and pulled easily, making it a perfect bed for driving it through the sometimes narrow and crowded corridors of a hospital. 

The designer, Dan Bishop, found a solution for crowded hospitals with lack of medical staff. The Vital Monitoring System allows the medical staff to remotely view the vital signs of the patient under their care without having to be in the same location. The device helps the doctors care for more patients than normal. This amazing device is easy to carry around as it can be strapped on the wrist of the patient, and it is designed to check the body temperature, the pulse rate and the blood pressure. The data is transferred wirelessly to a digital chart for later review and access.

The concept design today is not just restricted to the ones running on the road but designers today are coming up with exciting designs for both modes of transportation, be it on air or on water. These also include the designs aimed for leisure and pleasure, on these lines come the “Jetbike” designed by San Francisco based designer Norio Fulikawa. The concept looks hot as it can be said to be the racing bike of water because it is aerodynamically designed and has an awesome exhaust pipe and two fins to support its surge forward. All in all an awesome concept!

Cool Drive transportation design by Chinese designer Robin Wang is what he developed for mode of transportation for the future. The vehicle is quite practical as it is single-seater. It is made from complex fiber material, which provides complete safety to the driver by using brand new shock proof techniques wherein the impact on the body is directly transported to the wheels. The vehicle is shaped in the form of egg, which is another safety factor and has a front entry with a comfortable seating for the driver. By looks of it, surely it seems to be a cool drive as it can easily zip across the street in no time and also will not occupy much parking space.
