I-K is a Snowmobile concept that was created in base of an extensive investigation on the possible future needs in snow environments as ski areas. This is a patrol unit that allows the user to have a full freedom and incredible power. With 2 positions of use, patrol and speed, this unit is able to change its configuration to give a better view to the user when is searching in slow speed and in the case that more speed is needed it configures in a aerodynamical position. This design was fully developed by GRUPOTORO Studio, Buenos Aires, Argentina.
GAIA Smartwatch is a design submission from Cristian Tomas Moyano, a design student from Argentina. It’s a futuristic watch with multi functions, you can read his explanation below.
I’m introducing the GAIA Watch Project. This design project was developed as part of an Advanced Design Course in Córdoba, Argentina, given by the former Mercedes Benz chief designer Lucas Colombo Carbone.
As the functions of actual wearable devices are not convincing for both manufacturers and users-consumer, i try to imagine the scenarios where this technology could be helpful. Taking a step forward from health and fitness activities, I centered my design project on environmental health. A subject much needed in current times.
The GAIA Watch is a wearable device project developed for the year 2020. As the human beings constantly continue to damage the environment, the general population doesn’t have tools to measure and diagnose how healthy are the environments where they are living.
GAIA Watch aims to be a device that combines not only traditional Smartwatch functions, it also includes environmental contamination measurement capacity. This way, the device collects information from the different places where the user has been and, at the end of the day, the collected data is shared with a global social network. So, as the device is a Consumer Product, there will be hundreds, thousands or even millions of watches around the planet collecting and sharing environmental health information.
It is helpful to people and communities, to know and be aware of the contamination levels of each town, city and region in the world, but is helpful also for authorities and NGO, who could take advantage of the collected data to know where to improve the situation first.
Tuvie has received “Gaia Smartwatch” project from our ‘Submit A Design‘ feature, where we welcome our readers to submit their design/concept for publication.
Have you ever imagined driving a super cool car on your city roads that can knock out others? Well, RCA have unveiled sleek sustainable concept cars composed of aerodynamic glass or with a split framework mimicking a motorcycle and sidecar. The Royal College of Arts has recently showcased auto designs which are sleek and cutting edge concepts ready to steal your heart away. Their display included electric engines to ultra-lightweight materials to driver less navigation system. Most of the cars are 1-seater or 2-seaters. Some of the designs are so amazing that you just cannot wait to bring them home.
