This link --> http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-18560_162-57562201/how-to-design-breakthrough-inventions/ came highly recommended and I am half way through but as a postgraduate in Industrial Product Design I thought I should share it.Its about IDEO the company that came to life through many innovative products like the first apple computer mouse ! David Kelley founded IDEO in Silicon Valley - I suggest you jump over on the link above and find out more.
Why - because we are a nation of animal lovers and this will freak out the neighbours- that is what would make this a winning product. Its so cat like. I mean looks like a real flying cat.
How to stop cats pooing in your garden..the list goes on.The Audio High Top Sneaker
This was so futuristic in concept as CD's were still in use. Note the speaker positions and teeters will make this a less comfortable shoe to wear. It probably didn't make it past Photoshop. Imagine how annoying you could be on the metro with this !Tiny Small Video Camera or Telescope
Its not clear if this is telescopic or not and that copy says 8x Super not BE Super. I like the latter. A useful size but would need a design to attach to to free up your hand.
Of course you can play with this when not using it as a bottle opener. Just check out the detailing ! This is never going to get old nor unloved.Arm - inserted control.
Now this is more the new Total Recall that I was talking about having a phone in your palm. This is a more ugly and not very well designed vision but the idea has some merit though you have to imagine a better interface with less clutter.If Apple did jewellery II - return of the ring
Not for me this one - not at all as cool as the other bangle in future products IISony Slide Out
Again some good photoshop trickery here - this product doesn't exist for god reason - might look cool at first glance but why ? I guess they are trying to solve the problem of fitting a keyboard in somewhere - much like the stay - go laptops and slates of today #FAILShoe Thrusters
With these you will loose 20lbs ! They supply anti gravity effect. Either that or they are for the asbo toting youth as a way to report their location. #FAIL but good for some kind of inspiration as its weird things which jog your brain.
We continue to showcase the best industrial design and photoshop creativity.Xbox Automated Controller
As a working dad I can assure you that I don't get the same time as does a teenager and so its really hard to build a decent kill streak in call of duty ! They really need a dads (working dads) category so we can play at our own eternal noob level. I need some help to up my gun classes and short of hiring an individual in china to play for me (under my login) this is the kind of product I could use. Sway left and overshoot past the gobby teenager and oh yes he killed me...this is a thing of the past as a CPU takes over the game.One to watch
Add up the dots designed as a circuit board to tell the time - I feel this design won't make it.Its NOT TRUE THOUGH !
Its still not true, does this marketing really work for you ! It boggles my mind. Clearly heading back to the 80's with this watch design.If Apple made Jewellery..
The designer that did this appealed to a few of my weird tastes namely the studded array each side of the glowing logo. The only issue is that its a logo for me but I have seen logo tattoos go well so why not.
