LG’s Chocolate Phone To Be Launched Soon

LG has always been a label in making Black Label fashion phones. LG has showed the photos of its new phone called Chocolate on its web site. Although, LG has not mentioned anything about the release of the phone and the web site doest not give any details of the specifications too.

LG’s new BL40 also known as Chocolate has many photos on the LG’s official web site. The photos show that the phone has a glossy look. The phone is a touch screen device with an aspect ratio of 21:9. We will share some of the specification of the phone in coming paragraphs but we will have to wait till the August end to know the complete set of specification of the phone.

LG’s BL40 has a wide 4’’ touch screen with cinema display coming with an aspect ratio of 21:9. The resolution of the display is 800 x 345 pixels. This bizarre but beautiful phone will use S-Class interface as appeared over on a German forum.

The phone will be supporting the 3G technology with 7.2 MBPS HSDPA. The phone will sport Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth too. Only 10.9mm thick, the phone has a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash. The phone has a scratch-resistant glass that will protect your new handset and make it live a long life.

The information about the price, date of release and many more specifications are yet to be disclosed by the company. But it is expected that the phone make a good deal for the fashion loving people. The looks and the features of the phone are very enticing.

Grade school taught us the basic shapes…. Triangle, Square and Circle; and those dang shapes haven’t really changed a bit in all these many years. Elegant as they are as individuals, their identities converge as this graceful Braun Geometrical Kettle. Depending from which angle you look at it, you can easily identify a distinct triangle, square or circle, seamlessly merging into each other. Clean lines and simplicity make it a hit in my books.

What is this! Only a single bit of wood and a small bit of steel support on the bottom, we’ve got quite a sassy looking little sear here! What designer Scott Jarvie has done is to not only make the single seat cut from wood with almost no waste, but multiple seats can be cut with very little waste from a single large regular sheet of plywood, too!
As you can see from the first picture and a couple others below, the One Cut concept is used primarily on this single regular chair, but below, you can see the idea implemented on several different forms.
It’s a whole potential family!
The seat provides a nice surface to sit, lumbar support, and a rather wild form to look at. Very pretty!
Very ergonomic.

The Gaudi Stool gets its name from the architectural influences of the Gothic Designer Antoní
. Like his works, this stool derives its strength from the benefits of beam-grid substructures that support its thin carbon fiber shell. Rapid-prototyping techniques employed in its manufacture ensures that the cost of production stays minimum, thus making it a viable project. Kinda eccentric-style to say the least; I quite like the black carbon finish it gleams with.
The ‘Gaudi-chair’ is currently being developed in cooperation with Dutch research institute TNO.

Inverse Proportion For Texting

The choice so far in cell phones has been large screens and tiny keypads or tiny screens and large keypads. Finding both large-large on the same device is very rare (like the iPhone) and this may irk some hardcore texting addicts. A plausible solution can be a device that goes on to have a large display when reading a message that transforms to having a large keypad when typing in the text. This is what the Blackhole Phone is all about.

UPDATE: New Pics

I guess motion sensing technology is used to transform the digital screen form big screen to big keys, coz you need to reverse the phone to switch modes.

I reckon the ample keypad is good for pudgy fingers, now only if it were a QWERTY one!

OLED monitor

This flexible OLED monitor concept which supposes the OLED material would roll up inside the white stand and allow the user to choose the optimum screen size. Supposing that the material could compact itself that tightly, he goes on and mounts a cd drive behind the translucent screen and for good measure throws some invisible projection technology in as well.

don’t mean to be overly harsh on Mac, but the nature of design is deriving realistic solutions from the hard fast constraints that exist. Without heeding the problems of design, it ceases to be relevant.

suppose I should have expected reactions like this and I’m glad such a discourse has a place here at YD. I do want to clarify my position slightly as I do not want to seem dismissive of the great work that is featured here on a daily basis.
Concepts are a great part of the design process as they allow you to selectively hurdle one or two constraints for the purpose of creative exploration. So I hope the dreamers out there will continue to dream and give us your beautiful, fantastic, incredible inventions.

spherical hours eris

Eris – the biggest-dwarf planet in the solar system. In addition, it is the ninth largest (2500 km in diameter), the heavenly body revolves around the sun. Named in honor of the world watches Eris, of course, can not boast of such size, but they are made in Switzerland, and this share is already a big plus for hours.
