Koriko – iPhone Dock Concept

I want an iPhone dock that can change its forms reflecting various kinds of notifications needing attention as well as some simple controls for applications. The feelings you can get with that kind of tangible output & input are what touchscreen lacks.

Koriko is a simple iPhone stand with speakers and a flexible long arm (tail?).

Notifications are represented with the tail forming simple shapes.

When a song is played, it works as music control buttons you can push directly.

It not only changes forms, but also makes certain movements for some time. It waves good-bye when you turn it off.

There are so many possible other applications that would work with Koriko. It would be really fun to see it working.

iPetals

I like Fandi Meng‘s great “Sunny Flower” concept very much and was inspired a lot by the design.

It’s a solar charger for an iPhone. Based on Fandi’s design, I made it work also as an iPhone stand.

Post-It on Desktop Icons

This is simple and it might have been used already, but I really want to paste a post-it on a desktop icon so that I won’t forget what I should do with it. So if anybody knows a plugin like this, please let me know!!

Post-it colors, font size should be customizable just like “Stickies” (a default mac application).

Quick Look (a quick preview feature) or hover the cursor to see the enlarged image of the post-it.

iAcqua

Maybe I’m into projector concepts.

It’s an iPhone stand with a transparent touch screen, speaker and projector.
Dock your iPhone at the top.

Tilt it slowly to either side and your photos, songs or movies start running one after another at random like water coming out from a fountain. Each image will disappear in a few seconds. You can touch a photo to see it, a movie to play and a music icon to play the song.

Now turn up the faucet and when the dish is full, the images will be spilled on the floor, which are actually projection from the stand. You can also tilt the stand to spill images little by little to a certain direction.
And now you can play with larger images.

When you play music, you can see the visualizer working. Spill the visualizer on the floor and you see “full-screen” projected visualizer!

Sway, Charge & Study
Swing this many times and you get some electricity to charge your iPhone. This time, its motion censor sends your form data to your iPhone so that you can see your own golf swing animated.

Gravity on Desktop #1

Newton virus concept (which I love) + pinball.
Not practical at all. Just for having fun playing with the files on your desktop.
