Move Over Laptop, Meet Taptop!

Slides

Even the skinniest desktop computer looks like a clunker next to the Taptop computer concept! This desktop PC design ditches the big box CPU that collects dust in exchange for a compact device that’s also at the center of the user interaction.

It fuses the usual cursor optimized desktop interface with a multi-touch control strip that also functions as the Dock and Touch Bar. This way, users can interact with he actual device, not just with peripherals. Better yet, it brings the familiar concept of having all your apps at your fingertips!

Our generation is so used to swiping at things that it only seems natural that something like the Nimble Cutter would exist! Cleverly named, the Nimble is a thimble that sits on your finger, but instead of preventing needle pricks, this little bad-boy comes with a blade that’s capable of being the best cutter you’ll ever own. Convenient in its design, the Nimble’s silicone cap shape allows it to comfortably rest on any finger. A tiny blade on the tip lets you simply slide across surfaces you want to cut, be it paper, tape, clingfilm, etc. The blade’s small enough to slice through packaging, but too small to actually cut skin, which means the most the Nimble will do is poke you a tiny bit.

Perfect for the upcoming festive season (what with all the unboxing you’ll have to do), the Nimble takes a natural gesture, something we pretty much do all day on our touchscreens, and converts it into something useful, so you can ditch those harmful boxcutters and deadly knives!

The ultimate dust-royer

handy_vacuum_cleaner_1

When you think of vacuums, there are probably a few images that come to mind – the engineering aesthetics of Dyson, the loveable face of Henry the Hoover or the old reliable clunky hard-shelled Bosch and Siemens of the past. Well, what if you were to take the brilliance of both the emerging Chinese and Korean design languages and transform the handheld vacuum – you’d stumble upon the Handy Vacuum Cleaner designed by Myeonghoon Lee & Yubin Choi.

This product is edgy, coming off as intimidating almost, something that you would pick up in the toughest of situations and never bat an eye. This handheld vacuum is a dust-royer. The cyclone and motor located just under the handle, have a visual appearance like that of a futuristic concept bike, adding a subtle flair with the orange highlight. There is one area that I feel Lee and Choi rushed, which was the charging unit. With the Dyson handheld vacuum, the charging unit can be mounted to a wall, like that inside a closet, and the interaction of docking the vacuum is an effortless process, a carefully thought out one. It’s features like the Dyson charging unit that make good products great.
