Transparent Trucks Of The Future?

Art Lebedev might not be a household name in the U.S., but it’s one of the leading design studios in Russia, and it has been known to turn out some pretty interesting ideas. The latest is a system of cameras and screens that lets the traffic behind a semi-truck see what’s on the other side.  By putting a camera on the front and a set of projection screens on the rear doors, the traffic behind can see what’s coming–even around bends. That could be a huge help when attempting to pass a semi on a narrow two-lane road, where even following at proper distances it’s hard to see what’s ahead.  The design is, for now at least, prohibitively expensive as it requires the car approaching from behind to have a wireless projector capable of displaying the transmission from the truck’s front-mounted camera in order to project the image onto the rear of the truck.

The design negates the need for large, bright screens on the rear of every cargo trailer in existence, but at a cost.  Such a projector would have to be incredibly bright to be seen in daylight and also robust to withstand the conditions experienced by the average automobile, but it does show where the future of road safety could be headed. After all, who would have thought ten or twenty years ago that we’d have heads-up tunr-by-turn GPS displays and pedestrian-recognition night-vision cameras in production cars by 2010?  Art Lebedev Studio director and designer Artemy Lebedev calls this rolling display concept “Transparentius” and offers it purely as a conceptual take on future road safety.

The Hi-Can (or High Fidelity Canopy) bed ensures you never have to leave the house again – or bed for that matter. While it’s designed to look like a futuristic canopy bed, it’s in the gadgetry where this thing really shines. The bed comes with everything you need to waste the day away, including built-in blinds for privacy, state of the art surround sound system for watching the built-in projector – yeah the one that’s connected to a built-in game & entertainment console.

Apple iPad Pocket Projector

The pocket sized projector is easy to bring along seeing that it’s smaller than your current smartphone, and weighs just 5 ounces. The 35-lumen LED is rated for 20,000 hours of use, and lets users project at 640×480 pixels, creating a diagonal image that spans up to 60 inches. In addition to being a plug and play device for the iPad, this projector will also work on older versions of the iPhone and iPod Touch, and can even function as a backup battery for your iPhone in those emergency situations.

Kanye West debuted his new song “New Slaves” through a projection on 66 landmark buildings in 10 cities across North America, Europe, and Australia.  The content of the track is in stark contrast from the topics of in industry rappers, and even from Kanye himself.  But the message is loud and clear, and could not have been marketed better.  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.

Meet Pico.


Pico - "I Feer Sreepy"

The first time I saw this camera, the first thought that came into my head is “This has Kristy W. written ALL over it.”  but this interesting little camera has alot more under its cute appearance than it may seem.  Don’t let the designer fool you, it’s three things in one. This is “Pico,” a projector/video camera, two in one.  It has a camera for an eye, a projector for another eye, and a microphone for a smile.  It’s also got fold-out feet so it can stand on its own.  Pico features the ability to plug a tripod into it, but that’s neither here nor there.  The Pico also has the ability to Present and record at the same time, and work free of a laptop or other potentially cumbersome computer.  Like the rest of this “smart object” generation, this device has the ability to do everything in and of itself.  It has a full-size display on the back from whens you can also present on a more personal level.  With optical zoom lenses, simple to use interface, and compactness, I just might pick one of these up for my birthday or something.
