Conique Concept Toaster Looks Like An Alien Weapon

Fraser Leid has submitted his latest concept design proposal for Alessi. Conique is a unique toaster design, resulting from Fraser’s attempt to re-envisage a common household appliance into something with futuristic form. Fraser felt that toasters nowadays share similar characteristics, not much has changed since it was first introduced. After researching into different aspects of how toasters work, Fraser decided to threw the rulebook out of the window and made an attempt to design a piece that holds a never before seen aesthetic with the same functional value.

Certain areas are highlighted as an attempt to improve the current design such as: an angled slot elevation instead of vertical configuration, allowing toast to be easily accessed by user, no more exposed toast slots to create better aesthetic and limit foreign objects from falling inside, more efficient heating element, and remove electromagnet bread carriage mechanism by replacing it with a gradual system, making “pop up” a bit subtle.

The main aesthetic inspiration behind Conique concept toaster was streamlining of the 1930’s. Fraser wanted to produce something that would be more presentable in a kitchen environment, something that you don’t need to hide.

The finalized choice is extremely minimalistic, featuring clean aluminum exterior apart from the rear mounted timer dial. Press the canopy cover, it would slowly rise and recede backward as 2 glass ceramic toast slots elevate out of the toaster, presenting themselves at 35-degree angle. Insert the bread and return the canopy to a closed position, the semiconductors then begin to toast the bread. Closed canopy design allows your toast to stay warm for longer period of time. There’s a heat sensor located at the rear of the enclosure, it detects the variance of temperature inside the toaster and engages extractor fan when it becomes unhandleable. You can find more cool concepts from Fraser at his portfolio site.

Beast : Futuristic Hover Jet Bike Concept Is Powered by Just A Radial Fan

Awesome Sci-Fi vehicle, Beast is a futuristic hover jet bike concept powered by a radial fan just like those you can find on graphic cards or maybe classic hairdryers from the 70’s. It’s a single-pilot vehicle, a future vision of personal air vehicle might look like in the year of 2116. It’s a combination of a hovercraft and a motorcycle, the idea here is to use one super powerful fan that could life and move the vehicle. There are wings at the bottom for steering with two big thrust reverse brakes to stop.

SoberPixels Red Racer : Futuristic F1 Concept Racing Car by Ronald de Groot

SoberPixels Red Racer could be the next generation of F1 Racing Cars. It’s a futuristic car that blends the aesthetic of F1 racing car and neon-powered engine. The body of the car has been designed extremely low, suitable for indoor racetracks, perhaps that’s why the designer uses white rubber tires. Sleek and sharp lines of the car’s body makes it runs extremely fast. Ready, Set, Go!
