Urwerk EMC Watch is the perfect timepiece for you, control freaks. The company innovation and anti-establishment spirit has been channeled into a watchmaking Holy Grail: EMC. Electro Mechanical Control (EMC) provides you with world’s first precision mechanical watch where timing can be both monitored and adjusted according to the user to suit their lifestyle. If you were not satisfied with the timing rate of your watch, simply touch a button to fine-tune at the perfect rate of your choice. An exclusive watch that is made from titanium and steel with satin finish, now you can get reliable and accurate data about your timepiece at the touch of a button, a functionality which until now has been preserve of professional watchmakers.
James Coleman, a Product Design student at the University of Brighton, UK, has conceived of a revolutionary way of producing sound, for use in freestanding loudspeakers (eg hi-fi, TV surround sound and desktop computer speakers) named Levitating Superconducting Speakers. We have featured his work previously when he tried to redesign Kodak Box Brownie.
The Levitating Superconducting Speakers concept works by having a superconducting element housed inside a transducer, which can be suspended in a superdiamagnetic field by an electromagnet. Changing the electromagnetic field strength will cause the transducer to oscillate, which will impart sound directly into the air.

There are two contrasting designs. The first has a black base with gold transducers. The upper sections of the base rotate in opposite directions to allow the transducers to provide stereo sound. This version of the Levitators has no user input and is controlled entirely by whatever device it is connected to.
The second design of Levitating Superconducting Speakers has a blue/green base and silver transducers and consists of two separate units to provide stereo. This version includes a touchscreen around it’s base, and by moving one, two or three fingers up and down anywhere on the screen, the user can control the volume, bass and treble respectively. The display can also show information about the currently playing media. Power and data are transmitted wirelessly in both designs.
These Levitating Superconducting Speakers concepts have been made not as a realistic present day design, but as a design concept of a future product. The technology required to create these speakers exists today, but the superconducting material does not yet operate at room temperatures and is too expensive for mass production, and the wireless power is not efficient enough to provide the power required. These technologies are improving every day and it is likely that these speakers will be a viable product in 20-30 years.
Currently James Coleman is available for freelance product designer and photorealistic 3D/CAD product visualization artist. If you are interested, you can contact him: email@example.com
We just got a submission from Hussien Al Jammazi, this time he has designed TENNEN electric car for daily use. Since it is meant to use in a crowded cities, this two-seater electric car has been designed with a compact body to allow its user park easily, even in limited space. If you’re wondering why there’s a dinosaur logo on each image, well, he said that he got the inspiration from fire-attributed dinosaurs when he designed the body of this car.
