Wireless Bluetooth headset with camera built-in Looxcie

If you ever wanted to have very unusual gadgets this one is for you. This headset has 4 GB of internal memory can record video with a resolution HVGA 480x320. As well the device performs the usual functions of Bluetooth-headset and allows you to answer the phone.

It has two applications - LooxcieMoments and LooxcieCam. The first allows you to shoot video in 360p, second 480p. It is still a question why they didn't combine those into one. There are no applications for editing and uploading reordered videos. Both applications are pretty buggy in the viewfinder mode. There are versions for Android and iOS, but the second one made ​​a very sad impression on its testers because it was very raw.

It is also a bit tricky to make it face the right direction to shoot on go. However, it is worth it if you want to record your trip to work or walk in the park. It also works great as a headset. The sound is crisp and loud without any interference. It is priced at $ 199 in Amazon store.

HTC Gemstone – Technology and Luxury

French designer Sylvain Gerber made an attempt to design a new mobile phone for HTC – the company that is considered to be one of the best cell phone manufacturers now. The designer presented his own view of their smart phones. He managed to achieve his goal. The HTC Gemstone concept does differ from any of the serial models of the manufacturer.
Sylvian Gerber uses some of the design codes of the HTC Diamond 1 and 2, however, he refused the gloomy black color and presented the phone in much brighter colors. The HTC Touch Diamond phone features android system as well as an AMOLED screen. The animated graphic engraved at the back of the cover looks great and reminds of the geometric shapes of gems. The designer says that this mobile phone design combines technology and luxury. The phone does look luxurious and makes it owner the center of attention.

Nokia's aeon "full surface screen" cellphone concept

Nokia's research and development team have kicked it up a gear with an attractive "aeon" concept phone showing up in the R&D section of the company's website. The most prominent design feature of aeon is a touchscreen that stretches over the full surface area of the phone, similar to BenQ-Siemens's Black boxconcept phone we saw recently. Currently mobile technology isn't quite up to realizing this fantasy, but we'll sleep better tonight knowing that at least one of the cellphone industry's biggest names shares the same dream as we do -- BenQ's dream didn't count, unfortunately

Enchanting Folding-out Laptop With Utopian Specs

No matter how advanced, progressive, sleek and lightweight our laptops get, the one thing that we sorely miss is an elaborate keyboard. I know of someone who uses his Macbook but in conjunction with a wireless keyboard. Many hybrids and self-built versions are out there being used by folks, so the question really is, are we happy with what the industry is dishing out to us? Or do we have to lust after Utopian concepts like the iWEB 2.0…with really drool-worthy features!

Laptop/Desktop Hybrid...

Wow, I have seen parsecs worth of concept computer designs during my visit here on Earth, but nothing like this “B-membrane” design by Korean designer Won-Seok Lee. He has taken the need for a bulky monitors right out of the equation and opted for beaming your YouTubing onto any surface you can point the omni-directional projector at. Some highlights of this Kubrick inspired mother ship computer include a membrane keyboard that appears when needed, integrated optical drive and when not used as a computer, the projector can beam ambient light effects on any surface you desire.
Designer: Won-Seok Lee

At night it can be used for mood lighting.

AA USB – Battery and USB Drive Two-in-One

Since humanity invented flash drives, these have been a really rich source of inspiration for designers and engineers. This regards to both manufacturers of USB drives and very creative concept designers. The latter seem to be eager to build USB drives into everything they see. 
Wonchul Hwang, a very talented designers offers a new idea. The idea seems to be very logical: if you use your USB very often, if you keep it hooked to your computer most of the time, so why not to give an added value to your USB stick drive? The designer has combined USB drive with an AA battery. Thus Wonchul Hwang offers to use an USB drive for two aims simultaneously: to transmit information and to charge the accumulator. This simple, but genial concept is called AA USB.

All-InOne Computer....

Every mobile device concept offers something new. This can be either a set of futuristic functions or truly unique design. The new InOne concept by Jakub Zahor definitely belongs to the second category.
It is quite difficult to say for sure what type of computer the InOne is. On the one hand it reminds of notebook, however, a laptop with 22 inch display can be hardly called a mobile computer. On the other hand the device does not have a foldable construction, thus this is an all-in-one computer with sensor panel instead of traditional keyboard, touchpad, speakers and lots of other features. The device seems to be very interesting, however, it does not seem to be reliable enough, because breakdown of one of its elements means breakdown of the whole InOne computer.
