Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and ignoring it due to tardiness is a very bad idea. However a great idea would be the Pea-Personal Portable Breakfast Solution that Vyasateja Rao designed for the Electrolux Design Competition. Personally I think it’s a brilliant idea. This portable device has the capacity to serve you a freshly toasted slice of bread, carry a breakfast cereal or fruit plus provide a hotplate for your meat. Inspired by a pea pod, the device is meant for those who are always on the move and heed to hurry and be out of the house, ASAP!
The great thing with concepts is that you get to play with so many ideas, which you hope will one day bear fruit and be accepted in the real world.

The basic premise for the iMood alarm clock was to construct one that followed the environment and form language of high-end technology. The Ported speakers with component inputs and outputs are featured on the center iMood unit.

With strong references to the Japanese foyer as the “warmest place at home”, the speaker comes with a transmitter that hooks onto your audio source and has a 30-meter range.

Although it is still a concept, the Energy Box could prove to be a vital link in you turning eco-friendly. This unique box designed by Jiang Hao from China, uses solar energy to power and recharge various devices. It has a very functional slot on top of the box that accommodates your device. MP3 player, mobile phone or camera, it hooks any of these plus plays back music or doubles up as a handsfree. The Energy Box has the capability to turn the trapped solar energy to electric, so that you can juice up the gadgets. It would be great if such concepts are encouraged and they see the light of the day.

There have been many concept cars developed in the name of progressive technology, but very few are there that have a sever focus on design. The Sunrise is a concept car that was designed by the students of the Hunan University. Although there is very little information available for the concept, the images speak for themselves. What really strikes you when you view a slide is the ample windshield that extends to the roof. Urging you to simply Drive Your Passion, the concept focuses on bringing as much natural light into the car. Although the extent of safety of this idea cannot be guaranteed, it looks sturdy enough to pass all road-safety regulations. Doing away with the need for a sunroof, Sunrise hope to make your journey as beautiful as possible.
All this while you thought you couldn’t do without your handycam, phone, musicplayer etc. but if Sony has its way, you may be able to have just one gadget that does it all for you. It will be your mobile phone, still-camera, video recorder, PDA, music player; in short everything bundled together. This concept phone has a unique twist to it, to lock it or use it; you need to twist the movable base. It sports a 5 MP camera and has dual mode. You can either use the simple keypad or a stylus for inputs. WiFi and music/ video broadcasting capabilities complete the package. It also features handwriting recognition, which is quite an essential function for gadgets. This brilliant concept could give the Nokia Xpress phones a run for their money.
Hard Drives have the sole purpose of cramming your information into their bellies. However the biggest problems with this storehouse of information, is that you need to boot the entire system to access info like memory and capacity.

The surface of the drive acts like a fingerprint reader; acting like a password it the readily displays the memory space left and other info via the digital display. A wonderful idea, that would help the geeks know how much more info they can pack-in, in a jiffy!

Now here is an interesting design that incorporates two aspects of life that keep you from being tardy. For starters, this is a clock, an ordinary clock that has the simple function of telling you the time, so that you are never late for your next commitment. Secondly it features a note board carved into each hour, so that you can pin up those reminders. This way you get to see those notes glaring into your face, reminding you to do the job promptly. I’m not sure, but if this design does include an alarm at the hour of the posted note, it would compliment the purpose as well.
