LG Touch concept just won the Grand Prize of “LG Mobile Design Competition 2012”. The winning design is the project of talented Italian industrial designer, Andrea Ponti. You’ve probably seen his works that we featured several times at Tuvie such as Traccia pen-like mobile phone or AG++ metal case. The idea behind LG Touch cell phone concept came from the understanding of universal design, a challenging task to design an object that would fit all users perfectly yet feels custom made and flexible enough for each individual.
LG Touch boasts innovative technology with its raised touch screen that can morphs in 3D, this can happen by utilizing micro-shock waves running through a polymer membrane. It provides tactile feedback which also helps impaired vision users to interact with their smart phones, elderly users would find it easier to type, and everyone will get the benefit from the level of interaction and dual feedback (visual and tactile). The main point of this phone design is interaction and ergonomic rather than style.
Mac Funamizu is back with a new concept. Highly inspired by the WVIL concept camera demonstrated is CES 2011, Mac conceived of a similar device that looks smaller and thinner. Klipp, the future camera concept by Mac Funamizu is totally idyllic. The idea is pretty clear. The lens has a clip behind it so that you can place it over various places. The lens system is literally self-contained with all the necessary things required to take SLR high-quality photos. Regardless of where you clip it, the lens system sends the pictures to a hub device – a transparent screen, wirelessly.

Vlad Icobet says :
“The Egg is an all in one cooking and food preparation unit that unfolds like a flower from a cylindrical starting position using advanced electro-active polimers. The wings form three separate units that provide a place to prepare food, a cooking surface, and a washing facility. The Egg also includes an interactive holographic projector that allows the user to find information online to create recipes or get cooking instructions. When not in use, the Egg can be easily stowed to save space. It can be customized in any color to fit any kitchen decor.”
