"GlideX " Green Lights Glide on Magnets

These automobiles are made to speed. And on the power of magnets, they shall. But how do they work, these cars? Magnets are difficult to understand, right? No way, what are you thinking? This isn’t magic. It’s science! And it’s Chinese! Yes, this car right here is meant to play a large part in the gigantic burgeoning Chinese economy by (in 10-15 years time,) playing a role in the environmental, economic, and cultural wave-like revolution!

On Time Headset

ON TIME Sound headset system is a project that looks into the future of trends and style. It redesigns the concept of headsets, placing it as a fashionable design object.

It works as an headset or as a clock-bracelet developing a strong interface experience with the user trough it´s aesthetic & functional values. When using the headset, the user can see the caller id on the touchscreen as well as the time clock. While not in use the locking area for the headset provides a easy and safe storage area.

Eggy-Blob for Television President

What in the heck is this thing? Is it an egg? Is it a blob? Nay! It’s eggyblob -I mean, actually, the “Infinity Remote Control.” Designed by Damien Crossan, this remote was designed to fit a model of a possible remote 7 to 10 years from now. This remote utilized “4G” technology, lithium polymer batteries, and flexible touchscreens. And for its next trick, separation anxiety!

Braille E-Book

Visually challenged people require braille books in order to read. However, not many books are available in braille due to cost and inefficiency. Translating a 500 page book into braille nearly doubles the thickness. EAP is a technology that can dynamically change the surface pattern by way of an electromagnetic signal - simulating braille text. Not exactly a new idea but a nice executive nonetheless.

Designers: Seon-Keun Park, Byung-Min Woo, Sun-Hye Woo & Jin-Sun Park
