These are able to connect to the web bringing a new array of functions and possibilities. We are substituting our cell phones for PDA (personal digital assistant) devices. This is the way in which different functions become available in one device. The form of this PDA responds to the way in which we normally hold a phone and a camera. This has shifted the way in which we design products, now, more frequently, the shape of the object doesn’t respond to its function, becoming a black-box, that enables the interaction through its on-screen interface. This example demonstrates an alternative to the black-box that enriches the semiotic communication of the object. The form has a slight shift in its line that allows for a semiotic recognition of a phone, allowing us to hold it as a phone or as a camera.
“Elasty”, designed by Yoori Koo is actually an iPhone Case made from silicon with slits feature on its back which not only provides wire management for your earphones but also stuff which you can tuck it into. Not sure if he really does that but this design got a place as a silver winner of the 2011 Belkin Design competition. So now how much do you readers think this product should be worth should it be out on the market, considering that not only it’s a case which protects your precious iPhone, but also features which lets you neatly store away your earphones and even your EZlink card, etc.

Sony has taken the wraps off its first Android-based Walkman media player – the Z-1000. The NW-Z1000 is equipped with “S-Master MX” sound processing, digital noise-cancellation and a dedicated “W” button for the music player app. Running Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), Sony’s would-be iPod touch rival comes well spec’d with its 4.3-inch WVGA (480×800) touchscreen, NVIDIA Tegra 2 1GHz dual-core CPU platform and 512MB of RAM. Connectivity comes courtesy of WiFi 802.11b/g/n, GPS, DLNA, Bluetooth 2.1 (with EDR, AVRCP, A2DP, OPP profiles supported) and HDMI output.
The Wireless Touchpad features a touch sensitive surface 5-inches (12.7 cm) across that supports up to four fingers at a time to replicate some of the multi-touch gestures found in Lion, including two-finger scrolling, and three- and four-finger swipes. It is powered by two AA batteries, which should provide up to four months of touch swiping and scrolling. There’s also two physical buttons at the lower edge for left and right clicking. In contrast to Apple’s minimalist design fashioned from aluminum that communicates via Bluetooth, Logitech’s offering is made from plastic, is a little bulkier and communicates wirelessly to a range of up to 82 feet (25 m) via the 2.4 GHz frequency by way of Logitech’s Unifying USB receiver.
The device features two integrated high quality MEMS microphones that are designed to capture specific sounds like a fire alarm, or someone calling out from a distance, or the doorbell and transfer them into a visual pattern onto the display as blinking lights and pictograms. The Communicaid Visual Sound Station is a small portable device intended mainly for indoor use, allowing the hearing impaired to recognize sounds. The second concept from the series is a pair of glasses that can capture sounds and bring them to the wearer’s attention via blinking LEDs in a hair band style device. The device is intended for use during outdoor activates like jogging, commuting, shopping, etc. Intended for outdoor use, where a bulky sound station cannot be carried around, the Communicaid Glasses allow deaf people to become more aware of warning sounds and traffic on the street.

The Toggle multimode touch remote concept uses an innovative application of existing technology to deliver a rich, intuitive experience at an extremely affordable cost. The challenge was to take a complex array of devices and uses, and distill them down into one, flexible, multimode device. Though originally conceived for use with media, the Toggle platform can be applied across a wide variety of multimode remote applications. The core of Toggle is a simple touchpad, much like you might find on a laptop. Type is a qwerty keyboard for entering titles and URLs.
