Folding iPhone Fold

What happens when iPad Pro meets iPhone? A folding iPhone that doubles as a tablet of course, and it’s not too far fetched to imagine Apple releasing this type of device to compete with Samsung’s offerings, namely the Galaxy Fold. This particular concept measures in at 6.6-inches when folded back and 8.3-inches when opened, with a “Super Retina” display boasting 514 pixels-per-inch in both modes.

Lazareth LMV 496 Flying Bike

Ludovic Lazareth’s LMV 496 “La Moto Valante” is unlike any bike that you’ve seen before, or to be more specific, it’s a 4-wheeled motorcycle equipped with jet turbine-hubbed wheels that fold up to transform it into a flying hoverbike of sorts. At the center of each wheel hub is a powerful jet turbine, exhaust facing downward, similar to a quadcopter drone, but with much more power.

Self-driving vehicles use a host of sensors to perceive their surroundings, such as radar, Lidar, sonar, GPS, odometry and inertial measurement units, while advanced control systems interpret sensory information to identify appropriate navigation paths, as well as obstacles and relevant signage. It’s not too far-fetched to imagine supercars in the near future using these technologies for when a driver just wants to go for a ride around a track using the best possible racing line to prepare for a race, and what better way to do so than in the futuristic Porsche 357 concept.

ZTE may have faced challenges stateside recently, but they’re looking to get back on track, and what better way than by releasing a cutting edge folding smartphone? This design is based on a patent filed in April last year with the Global Design Database of the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office) and published on March 5, 2019. Rather than follow in the footsteps of the Samsung Galaxy Fold, this smartphone boasts a clamshell design that flips open to reveal a full-screen display, and in the back, there’s a dual camera setup.

The Nintendo Switch is set to get a refresh some time this year, and it already has a playable version of Fortnite, but what if the company were to go back to the basics and re-release the Game Boy? If that happened, it might look something like the Nintendo Flex. This portable game console retains a similar button layout with flush body-colored buttons and replaces the traditional cartridge slot out back with a microSD expansion of sorts that doubles as a power switch on the side.

Move Airbus Seat Concept

Let’s face it, the slimline airplane seats being installed in airplane cabins now aren’t the most comfortable, or at least for passengers flying in economy, that is unless…you’re talking about the new Move Airbus seat concept. It’s made from pressure-sensitive conductive yarn wrapped around an aluminum frame and connected to a series of sensors as well as a smartphone app. The seat sends electrical currents through the conductive yarn to adjust the firmness, while the sensors monitor temperature, tension, pressure, along with movement to perfectly adapt to your body.
