The Seamless Screen.

The poor bezel, I wonder what it ever did to us to deserve this hatred, but wow… Humans really dislike them. With every smartphone from last year trying hard to kill the bezel, Asus Rog finally designed a hack that does just that, but it isn’t for phones just yet. The Bezel Free Kit fulfills the dreams of gamers, allowing them to put together three monitors and remove the bezels between each WITHOUT using electricity or batteries). How does it do that? Refraction. The kit comes as two independent strips that can be placed between monitors. It uses a lens that ‘bends’ light in a manner that removes the bezel from view, making it look like you have one continuous screen.

The result isn’t perfect, but it’s enough to make a difference. You still notice the fact that there’s something sitting between screens, and it applies a slight blurred effect to the imagery behind it, making it good for games, but not for productivity. The Bezel Free Kit snaps right on to monitors and comes in three sizes, designed for 24″, 25″, and 32″ monitors, but you’ll need to make sure all your monitors are the same make and size, so that the lens strips can easily mount onto the displays. Scroll down to check out a video of the guys at Verge having a look at it. Wouldn’t it be fun though if your smartphone screen protector could refract light to remove your bezels?

Levitating Wireless Computer Mouse

Russian designer Vadim Kibardin bothered about carpal tunnel syndrome (median nerve dysfunction / entrapment) that occurs with long-term use of computer mouse and developed the “BAT” – the levitating wireless computer mouse. It consists of a floating navigator and magnetic base ring. As any active computer users can be prone to this ailment, the system aims to eliminate numbness, tingling, weakness, or muscle damage in the hand and fingers caused from over exposure to a mouse by elevating the controls to an ergonomic position.

The People’s Car Project.

The Volkswagen hover car is a product of the “People’s Car Project” in China, which called upon customers to contribute design ideas for VW’s model of the future.  The crowd-sourcing initiative debuted in China last year and, to date, has inspired 33 million website visitors to submit 119,000 ideas.  The hovercraft uses electromagnetic levitation to float along its own grid above the regular road network; distance sensors keep the craft from colliding with other vehicles.

The disc-shaped pod seats two people and is controlled by a joystick that offers amazing maneuverability. The car can move both back-and-forth and side-to-side and can even spin on an axis.  Automated safety features monitor the Hover Car’s surroundings and can take control if a potential accident is detected. The concept car produces zero emissions.

8-Bit Movie Posters.

No matter how far technology comes, there will always be a certain respect for the old school.  One of the first things people of my generation remember from the digital world are 8-Bit images.  That being said, getting a look at certain CGI heavy movies from an 8-bit perspective is quite an interesting thing.  Check the method below.

The Future Computer.

This concept computer-of-the-future by designer Jakub Záhoř allows the user to operate the device anywhere they can find a glass surface. The user simply attaches the central unit to any glass surface like a window or coffee table, switches on the power, and watches their system light up before their eyes. The display appears as an interactive hologram on the glass that the user merely has to touch to operate. It also makes for an easy, take-anywhere way to project photos and presentations or stream movies. Windex not included.

The Throw Clock.

Click the pic to see the Throw Clock.

Throughout the history of time, way too many different clocks have been created for me to mention them all.  Thats why me mentioning this one means its a bit special.  The ‘Throw Clock’ is a digital internet application that does what all clocks do… tell the time.  And since its an online app, it tells the time that’s already on your computer, (which may be wrong).  But all in all, its pretty dope.  The digits fall from the top, and are in military time, which may make it a bit confusing for some.  And… if you leave the screen and come back, the numbers all tumble down in a Matrix-like rain which is pretty dope.  Click the pic to check the method.
