TOYOTA Fun-Vii image movie introduced at 2011 Tokyo Motor Show.
Watch how future technology will help people make better use of their time, focus their attention, and strengthen relationships while getting things done at work, home, and on the go.
Inspired by musculature, this concept evokes a fluidic sculpture from the upper and lower sections intertwined together. The whole body is made up of materials that stretch and contract just like your muscles do and enables steering without any kind of assistive apparatus. When turning a corner, the entire body relaxes so that it can smoothly corner, and when accelerating, it contracts to form a rigid body. I’m totally intrigued by the idea. Not so sure about the design though.
Bento is quite an exceptional and forward thinking concept by René Woo-Ram Lee. It’s quite a plausible scenario that most of use/own a tablet, a PC, external hard drives and a smartphone. Now combine the power of these to have fully customizable Bento Laptop! The Box accommodates all the gear to work as one whole unit or individually; as you see fit.
When tasked with creating a synthetic urban tree for the City of Boston (or any city) that could provide all the benefits of a real tree (de-carbonization and protection) without requiring soil and water, a team from Paris rose to the challenge. Their innovative concept is called Treepods. The systems are capable of removing carbon dioxide from the air and releasing oxygen using a carbon dioxide removal process called “humidity swing.”
We’ll be seeing touchscreen technology a lot more in the future. Corning Incorporated, best known for their Gorilla glass technology, released an interesting promo video laying out its vision for the future of displays. From refrigerator doors to shop windows, the five minute clip, titled “A Day Made of Glass” shows a wide range of applications that could be soon within our reach.
Director Mischa Rozema returns with another trademark visually unique mixed media film, combining live action with 2d/3d animation, motion graphics, stock footage and visual effects. BSUR approached PostPanic to help them create an extra special product launch film to match the distinctive new MINI Rocketman concept. Most staggering is that the whole production took just 4 weeks from start to finish, including two studio shoots in Amsterdam and Munich.
The Aerius concept is a high performance electric vehicle for 2025. The concept is combines the performance of race cars with emerging sustainable energy sources and materials. It’s driven by Michelin Active in-wheel electric motors at the rear and on-board electric motors in the front for instantaneous acceleration and agile handling. The aerodynamic body to reduces energy consumption and solar panels re-charge the carbon nanotube super-capacitors to extend its range while emitting zero carbons. Time travel will cost extra.
A concept watch for Tokyoflash, the Solaris features solar cells as an integral part of the design. It definitely has that almost “too hard to use” quality found on most Tokyoflash watches but theres something about this design I find extremely appealing. Perhaps because it looks like a device a sci-fi hero would use to jump through time.
Still Dream about having a iPhone? Not after you see this one!
How many “flips” does it take to make your Smartphone super-sexy. The answer? Three flexible AMOLED touchscreens and a keyboard on the reverse! Here’s what the Flip Phone feels like: a smart triangular piece held together with soft steel mesh hinges, hosting a custom flavor of Android.The boundaries of a PC and phone have smudged-up big time and this is a sample of what that future looks like. I love it!
The Second Life Mobile Phone Concept works on the premise that we often forget about the battery life of our mobile phones, hence run out of juice, just at the wrong time. As a remedy (rather power-saver-option) the phone incorporates a double display. When in active use the AMOLED screen powers up in all glory and in standby mode the E-ink display gets active. This essentially means that the E-ink uses very little energy and the degree of transparency of the display shows how much battery is remaining. The more transparent the display, the less battery remaining.

One of the most unique and common forms of art on the Internet these days is called concept art. Concept art is a form of illustration where the main goal is to convey a visual representation of a design, idea, and/or mood for use in movies, video games, animation, or comic books before it is put into the final product.
Awesome concept car “Peugeot Shine” made by Piotr Czyzewsk, a CG artist that uses his experience in 2D and 3D to make incredible Concept cars, shoes, watches and other things. Now working for Cobrey has a Yacht designer Piotr uses 3ds max, mental ray, Photoshop, Flash and Adobe Premiere.
Eclipse is a media player that uses the photovoltaic cells on its backside to draw in solar power and sticks onto the window via a suction cup. As expected of any “good media player”, this one too features Bluetooth connectivity to steam in music from your MP3 player or catch weather updates, podcasts & radio. The speakers are built-in but the cutest aspect to the design is the compartment to hold your music device. It resembles the compartment used in cassette tape players from yester-years; the evident “eject” button et all!
Suggestions for Android and iPhone users to download Eclipse App for “interesting screen savers as you play your favorite songs”, sounds cool! Perks of being a concept I tell you!
The Seabird is a design created for the Mozilla Labs’ Concept Series by a fellow named Billy May. It’s basically a community-driven exploration of how an Open Web phone might look. The design involves an Android-based operating system, “an 8 megapixel camera, dual side pico projectors, wireless charging, and an embedded Bluetooth dongle,”
