The FuChat is a cordless phone for the home that can make both Internet calls and regular calls. The FuChat is also an interactive tool that allows users to increase their emotional self-awareness. The FuChat phone has sensors that can detect changes of tone in a person’s voice and changes in body temperature, in order to alert the user of their current emotional state. The goal of this function is to make interaction with the phone a more personal experience, improving communication by tying human emotions into an electronic device. The FuChat phone is made from renewable plastic to reduce its impact on the environment. Online account management and support is also included with the FuChat, allowing people to easily configure and manage their phone through the Internet.
The FuChat is made from a biodegradable plastic made from renewable materials like corn starch and sugarcane to reduce its impact on the environment. The FuChat uses a light aluminum compound for the inner framework to increase its durability. The environmentally conscious materials in the phone will appeal to users that are concerned about protecting the environment.
The FuChat uses emotion to increase effective communication. When the FuChat detects a change in the user’s tone of voice or body temperature, it will change the display, text, sound, lights, and color on the phone. Emotional self-awareness can help with business calls, personal calls, general awareness, or people with specific needs like anger management. If the user is busy and does not want to be disturbed, they can set the phone to block all calls and record voicemail messages. The user can enter information about important events into the FuChat and the FuChat will remind the user of these events before they happen. Two-way interaction with the FuChat will closely bond the user with the FuChat.
The FuChat is a tool people can use to convey personal information with others in their home. The back of the FuChat displays the user’s emotional information, the time, weather images, or the “Do not disturb” icon when they are busy. The phone can also hang from a door-handle using the hole on the top of the phone while displaying messages like “Do not disturb” or “Busy studying.” The bottom of the FuChat is weighted so it can stand upright on any flat surface in order to display messages.
The FuChat connects the user to their environment through interaction. The wall-mounted base station of the FuChat displays weather conditions, temperature, time, and caller ID for incoming calls. Weather information is taken from the Internet and is displayed using lively images. The front of FuChat also displays caller ID for incoming calls, has a numbered keypad for dialing, and has buttons to make a call, hang up, and select menu items. Access to regular land-line telephone networks provides additional reliability in the case of Internet outages.
MINImill changes the way we perceive manufacturing technologies. Developed by three students at the technical university of Graz, MINImill brings fully automated small scale manufacturing to your desktop, thus speeding up your development time enormously.
To make the CNC milling process simple and easy to use for everyone, they started developing a new software from scratch. This software automatically calculates the best way to cut parts out of your CAD files (.stl, .gerber). After automatically calibrating and measuring the cutting tool with its tool length sensor, MINImill directly machines your parts out of plastics, pcbs, or machining wax.
Designers : Jakob Neuhauser, Thomas Schiefermair, and Martin Viereckl of Minimill
Therefore MINImill is the perfect tool for creators or startups as it enables you to test out real life, physical products ranging from mechanical parts to electric circuit boards without the need for ordering expensive prototype parts. MINImill also offers designers the possibility to automatically cut beautiful enclosures for their projects, custom circuit boards or individual presents for you’re their ones out of various materials.
Designed to be safe and easy to use, MINImill is equipped with a safety door that keeps you protected from moving parts and keeps the dust created during the milling process inside the machine. It is small enough to be neatly placed on a desktop in your office or workshop, whilst keeping enough build space for your projects. This project has been developed for creators schools, small laboratories or startups, the machine and software are currently heavily tested to meet the need of its customers.
Harley Davidson TRUNK is a sovereign biking concept aiming at re-establishing green. The Trunk Concept derives self-sufficiency aspects from the earlier version of Harley Davidson to retain the quality and class. At the same time, TRUNK biking also targets to root modern specialties. The biking solution provides two vital features, one is Recycling and other one is Natural Materials. Trunk is a revolution and the advanced Chassis is developed in due with the features of Sequoia, a Californian forest tree. The tree holds high respect with Amerindians. Sequoia is also termed as giant of vegetable kingdom. Other features that have made the design special are natural mother, legend, root, custom, simplicity and self-sufficiency.
