Holocube HC Tablet


Rate This Concept Now!

Overview: The first of its kind, the Holocube HC Tablet turns your iPad Air 2 into a holographic projector you can use at home. Its magic lies in a transparent synthetic mirror with a solid hinge at a 45 degree angle that captures moving media on the screen, projecting it into thin air. Crafted with a thin aluminum fingerprint-resistant housing, it maintains the aesthetic minimalism of your device unlike other clunky designs.

Overview: The Orion Stargazing Companion is a very cool device that allows us to discover and recognize constellations in the night sky. Most stargazers manage to recognize Ursa Minor and Ursa Major, however we all know there are many more. Thanks to its transparent screen, precise location technology and easy-to-use key functions, locating constellations accurately is a breeze.

Interestingly, you can even project celestial objects on a room’s ceiling thanks to the mini projector integrated on the backside.

Loewe Invisio

Overview: Ask yourself, “what’s the next step in television innovation?” The answer is transparency – an invisible flatscreen that blends into the home environment when not in use, much like the Loewe Invisio. This magnificent TV is not a big black blot in standby mode, like how all television sets are. It’s a clear, frameless glass surface that keeps the room in its “visually unaltered” state.

Michael explains, “As the first of its kind, the Loewe Invisio introduces technical innovation, combining conventional LCD and the latest TOLED display technology. This allows to create non-transparent / solid moving pictures with rich color reproduction and full contrast range from solid black to pristine white.”

Just what our homes need!

SpaceTop – Single Desktop Workspace


Rate This Concept Now!

Overview:  SpaceTop is a technological and design elucidation that merges 2D and spatial 3D interactions into a single desktop workspace. Extending the traditional desktop interface with the use of interaction technology and visualization techniques, transitioning between 2D and 3D manipulations is a breeze. SpaceTop allows users to type, click, draw in 2D, and directly manipulate interface elements that float in the 3D space above the keyboard.

As the designers say, “It makes it possible to easily switch from one modality to another, or to simultaneously use two modalities with different hands. We introduce hardware and software configurations for co-locating these various interaction modalities in a unified workspace using depth cameras and a transparent display.”

Designers: Jinha Lee, Alex Olwal, Hiroshi Ishii, and Cati Boulanger
