New technologies and gadgets

A small selection of new technologies and the concept of new products.

iPod Disk: the concept of the player as a pendant
Somehow this concept reminded Christmas joke with the MacBook Wheel. And all thanks to the control disc, which in this case will of the designer Yungvanya Cheya (Junghwan Chei), and is the very player. The only decoration of this concept are a special LED display on the entire surface of the front panel. It allows you to change the interface according to your preferences. The front panel iPod Disk while protected from scratches special coating. The player itself can be worn on the wrist like a watch or hang on the neck as a pendant.

Scratch-n-Scroll - mouse pad + Notebook
It would seem, why every time sitting at the computer, look for the leaf, look for a pen or pencil when you need something urgently to write, if you can do it right on the mouse pad, and a finger? And erase writing pad with a snap - simply lift the upper semi-transparent layer pad and lower it into place. Thus we have a reusable "leaf" for the notes, which is at the same time also a mouse pad.

And is this accessory with intricate called My Reading Light for developing countries, where there is little electricity, but a lot of sun. The creators promise a low price. But it is not what they say. We are much more interested in - how easy is to use this gadget with the device for reading electronic books.

Concept charger Solar
Another great idea for the inhabitants of warm countries, where a lot of sunny days and little by little electrical outlets. Author of the concept - young designer Fendi Meng (Fandi Meng) from China, who, despite his young age, has had one of the winners of the If Design Competition last year. His project Charger Solar has a design fan and is called Sunny Flower, which literally means "sun flower" and at the same time reminds word Sunflower («sunflower"). This charger has just 6 solar panels and unfolds as a portable satellite dish from Hollywood blockbusters. Yet it has a suction cup for mounting on a window or windshield (for charging) or the table (in this position, as seen in the figure, which is to charge a gadget). See all well and looks quite plausible to commercialize proizvodsta now.
