Elegant. Gizmodo’s covering a GPS navigator that’s as simple as a stalk that bends towards your destination…pair ’em up and you can keep track of a friend 🙂
Dandella is the winning concept from the Japan Design Foundation’s International Design Competition…woulda been cute to see the two winners finding each other with a pair of Dandellas. It’s a lovely example of tangible media and playful, emotional design…I love that it lives in a Charging Vase! Perhaps we’ll see cellphones that pull you towards your next meeting 😉
The other finalists are largely robotic concepts – perhaps typical of Japanese research – that illustrate the fascinating edge concepts of modern industrial design in Japan.
