All Mod Cons : TV’s New Frontier

After launching the LG Display curved OLED televisions with 4K capability, this year’s offering is sure to make headlines. LG has a mind-melting 55-inch ‘wallpaper-style’ set that is a very thin 0.97mm and weighs only 4.1 pounds. As OLEDS don’t need backlighting,the actual components are not contained within the TV itself. The “mat” can be hooked up on a wall using a magnetic foundation, allowing the ever-present TV to practically disappear altogether.
No dates as to “when” this new development might hit first-adaptors..

Kiss The Future: The Kinematic Dress

3D printing continues to take small leaps and bounds as adventurers literally spin out innovative adaptations like that of Nervous Systems, Massachusetts  and their kinematically designed frock. Made from over 2200 modular, triangular pieces that move individually allowing fluid, fabric like motion. 21st Century chainmail. So wonderfully innovative that MoMa NYC has bought it to place in their museum. Printed through Shapeways, it involved ‘folding’ the stl. file within the parameters of printing capacity. A remarkable, technological feat that is equally delicate and beautiful.

3D Printing: The Evolution

The process of additive manufacturing is evolving very quickly and it won’t be long before the everyday consumer really feels the impact. For the moment, the novelty lends itself well to the luxury market, whether it’s a printed CAR, HOUSE or more modestly, the customizable Prada shoe! Clients can soon choose not only heels and other modifications on certain styles but have their own initials engraved on the heel. Couture, 21st century style.

The Osteoid Brace: A’Design Winner 2013-2014

A highly innovative design from Deniz Karasahin, Paris won the 2014 A’Design contest for a medical brace. It is not only custom 3-D printed to each patient but because of the material, is waterproof, lightweight, environmentally sound and bacteria-resistant. There are ultrasound probes on the interior that directly touch the skin so regular low intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) will stimulate bone reconstruction. Quote: “For single 20 minute daily sessions this system promises to reduce the healing process up to 38% and increase the heal rate up to 80% in non-union fractures”. The structure also allows maximum breathability, reducing infections and itchiness. Impressive.

Fly Supersonic: The Spike S-512

This sleek monster by Spike Aerospace is an 18 passenger supersonic business jet that will glide along at 1100mph (Mach 1.6). This will halve the current times between points like NYC to London in 3 hours. The streamlining is aided by the omition of windows. Yes, windows. In it’s place, the walls will act as video monitors of the outside in real time and can dim on demand. Sweet.

The Jelly Moth: Micro Flying Robot

Taking a rather novel approach to drones, this prototype for a new breed of tiny flying robots could hail a new chapter in stealth use that mimic the insect world. These “MAVs” (micro aerial vehicles) have been difficult to control and are weighed down but New York University has developed one that is featherweight and remains stable due to its petal propulsion which is a cross between a jellyfish and moth and is not much bigger than a dime! Would make a great art installation with a few dozen too….

Zaha Hadid vs. UNITED: Let the Games Begin…

Recalling the work of italian futurist Umberto Boccioni, these creations are visionary.
Hadid states: “I have always appreciated those who dare to experiment with materials and proportions”. “Our collaboration with United Nude reinterprets the classic shoe typology, pushing the boundaries of what is possible without compromising integrity.” Indeed.
Made of chrome vinyl rubber and lined in Nappa with fibreglass platform and heel, no amount of comfort is lost. Available in bronze, gold, black and silver. zaha Hadid for United

Philips DesignLine 2013

Coming to Europe and Russia later this year, the new Philips DesignLine 2013 TV comes in 46- and 55-inch screen sizes, has a LCD display sitting behind the front glass sheet with active 3D technology for Full HD 3D, wifi and smart capabilities. It also sits casually on the floor, floating above the ground in a sleek display with ambient background light for added mood. No price has been disclosed yet, however…

Instant 3D dress: Just add Dita!

Stars came out to see the unveiling of the world’s first 3D printed dress (well, Deborah Harry anyhow…) Designed by Michael Schmidt of Lady Gaga/Cher fame (ok?) in collaboration with SHAPEWAYS, the resulting linked nylon was sprayed black, sprinkled with Swarovski and poured over the VERY beautiful Dita Von Teese. Oolala!
