Dell Froot Concept Design Does Away with Keyboard, Monitor

Frooting amazing!
With the environment and sustainability firmly in mind the Dell Froot concept saves the planet courtesy two projectors: One for the virtual keyboard, and another for the monitor.Designed by Pauline Carlos as part of a sustainability contest sponsored by Dell, the Froot also uses a colorful case that’s constructed out of a biodegradable starch-based polymer. As it’s a futuristic concept, the lack of a mouse is understabdable—we’ll no doubt be using our brains by then.

If only I could wipe this swarmy look off my face…
The YikeBike is an electric, folding “mini-farthing” (think “penny-farthing”) bike — €3,500 gets you a 10kg electric scooter that folds up to the size of a cymbal set and travels 10-20km on a single charge at 20km/h. Ideal for short-hop commuters who are too lazy to pedal a bicycle, as well as anyone who doesn’t think a Segway is dorky enough!

The Glowing ARTIKCAR



Bicycle Design is always trawling up remarkable cycle oddities. This one, the work of UK artist Ben Wilson, is modeled off the kids toys Ben remembers from youth. Though more art than daily mule, ARTIKCAR is steered by leaning the body. It was conceived for a parade masterminded by Walk the Plank, a UK “creative force of artists, theatre makers, pyrotechnicians and event engineers.”

Fleximus – Flexible Camera Concept



We’re not sure why designer Art Lebedev wants to shoot video from the oddest of angles, but with his new design concept he calls Fleximus, he says “your horizons for creativity will be broadened tremendously.” His design concept for a flexible snorkel-cam with a lens on one end and a compact peephole viewfinder on the other is certainly original.
