Music Echo concept

25 Apr

If you would have noticed by now, there would be a bunch of product design students attached to the University of Dundee who have to come up with a final year project, and they are busy pinging electronic gadgets and design blogs all over the place to pimp their design, hoping to gain as much accolade and bouquets as possible. Jennifer Crossley has come up with a rather interesting Music Echo concept, where she intends for this device to help those out with hearing impairments.

The Music Echo intends to help hearing impaired folks enhance their enjoyment of music, where it is able to take just about any song, vibrating the music through a range of interactive beads to clarify it further. All you need to do then is wrap those beads around your hand, or place them in your pocket, and you will experience a new dimension in music. Since it is highly portable and stylish, you will be able to wear the Music Echo electronic gadgets in just about any situation without feeling out of place. Anyone wants to turn this into a real world product?

Hyper Touch Guitar concept

28 Mar

Truly inspiring designs roll about once in a while, and we’re pretty happy to bring you word of the Hyper Touch Guitar concept, where it intends to usher in guitar design into the 21st century. Just how does it hope to achieve that? For starters, the strings are replaced as well as the fret board, relying on a touch screen display instead that offers an unprecedented level of flexibility. Purists might argue that this will dilute the amount of skill required when it comes to manipulating the guitar, but it would surely help the touch screen generation connect better with this insturment. Coolest tech gadgets! The design itself lets you change the setup of the guitar with but a push of a button, allowing you to change from six string to 12 string, or perhaps adjust its tunings in a jiffy. Of course, we do wonder whether this will double up as a MIDI controller or not, or whether it can function as a standalone instrument. Those are questions that engineers will need to work out if it were to roll off a production line.
