    ‘The Star Wars’ Concept Trailer Based on Original Concept Art (Video)

    Tonight, the latest chapter in the perpetual Star Wars saga hits theaters.

  • Teleavia Retro TV Concept

    Teleavia Retro TV Concept

    Ultra thin widescreen TVs look great, but sometimes I still find myself envious of the old-school retro feel of 1960s TV sets, while not for a moment wishing I could go back to the Frank Tashlin nightmares that were picture quality fifty years ago.

    Project Neptune: An Aston Martin Submarine

    The James Bond comparisons practically write themselves – Aston Martin is teaming up with Triton Submarines for its own flagship luxury sub.

    Slow: The “Anti-Energy” Drink Concept

    Aleksandra Wiśniewska was sick of the onslaught of energy drinks on the market, promising ever more nervy waking hours – couldn’t there be room in the world for a drink that calms you down rather than revs you up (and no, I’m not talking about alcohol). Enter Slow, a “calming milkshake” created from natural ingredients […]

    It’s 2017 and the heroes out there at BrainMonk have come up with a technological improvement over the conventional tape deck.

    ‘Tipping’ Cabin Concept by Christophe Benichou (Pics)

    Tipping may not be a city in China, but it is a striking and bold concept for an outdoor cabin recently whipped up by artist and designer Christophe Benichou. True to its name, this cabin appears to tip over the edge of a cliff—or at least it would if it ever got actually built in […]
