Naomi Kizhner’s Parasitic Powered Jewelry

In the dystopian future of The Matrix, humanity has been converted into a renewable crop by energy-starved sentient machines, with “farms” of human bodies harnessed and harvested for their metabolic output. It’s one of those disturbing sci-fi premises which can leave one suspicious of artificial intelligence, robotic vacuums, and the whole “internet of things” trend. But maybe Agent Smith and his robotic compatriots were onto something in regards to the human body as a renewable energy source. The ‘e-pulse conductor’ is a pendant without a chain, harvesting bioelectricity from the human body’s neurological system, “plugged” into the spine via pincer interface. Industrial design graduate student, Naomi Kizhner of Jerusalem’s Hadassah College envisions jewelry one day serving purposes beyond adornment, a three-piece collection connecting and converting the human body into one gigantic battery for biological data feedback. Energy Addicts’ entomological-styled accessories hints of early David Cronenberg at hisbest/worst, the jewelry’s macabre beauty furthered by how each piece is worn: sharp pincers and stings pierce skin, establishing an “interface” between body and each bio-electrically powered accessory. Blood Bridge: designed to tap directly into the action of ulnar artery – the body’s main blood vessel – the pulmonary flow of the heart spins an enclosed wheel to generate electricity.

Ring Leading Of The Future


 

Ring1

Ever since the evolution of cell phones, the need for watches has quickly disappeared. As the style of society also has changed the watch came back as statement. Large watches represent more of a fashion sense than a conventional use for an item. But now, a completely revolutionary idea has changed the time game. It is a watch with three movable rows; each with a unique function designed specifically in regard to helping tell time.  The first row shows numbers 1 to 24, the second shows 1 to 59, and the third sports little dots, which correspond to the hours, minutes and seconds, respectively.  To tell the time, built-in LEDs will light up the corresponding labels as soon as the ring is spun.  The Ring Clock is made from 316L surgical stainless steel and has a simple and sleek design. With the lights that are faint but still visible, this ring is sure to start some great conversations.

eBay Unveil 3D Printing App


ebayexact_01

As the 3D printing revolution continues to gain pace, eBay have jumped on the bandwagon with a new iPhone app that lets users customise accessories before they are printed and shipped out to them. Named eBay Exact, the simple app shows you several items from 3D printing companies MakerBot, Sculpteo and Hot Pop Factory – mostly iPhone cases and jewelry. You then pick an item and modify features like the pattern, material, shape and color. Although the app is rather basic at this stage, it could become key part of eBay’s business, signalling a shift towards highly customisable products.

Futuristic Ring Clock

CGSociety user, Cyber recently designed a ring clock, a mechanical ring made from stainless steel that displays the time. It has three rings that rotate separately, displaying the hour, minutes and seconds. An indicator ensures that you put the ring on properly, and the current time is highlighted. Not only is this little gadget functional, but it’s also quite stylish.

Mobiado and Aston Martin Show Transparent Droid Phone Concept


gsmarena_001

Mobiado, the luxury phone maker, and Aston Martin, the luxury car maker, are in cahoots, trying to co-create phones. The first prototype they’ve shown is a stunning transparent Android phone. The Mobiado concept phone is called CTP002 is basically one big, transparent sapphire glass with two titanium edges on the left and right. The glass is a color capacitive touchscreen. We know it’s only a concept and from a technical standpoint it seems all but impossible, but the Mobiado CTP002 is a joy to behold. The phone will connect with the car and its display. The car display will show a map with all local venues and your friends from Foursquare. The cameras integrated into the car can be set to snap a photo periodically and post it on Facebook or Twitter and the CTP002’s accelerometer will track the drivers body in case of a collision, giving the car’s airbags better information on how to react. The Mobiado CTP002 concept will be shown off at BaselWorld, the world watch and jewelry show in Switzerland this year.
