Yanko Design is one of my Favourite sources of juicy product design from the drawing boards of some of the most forward thinking product designers out there. Design Sojourn drew my attention to another insanely cool product idea they’re showcasing. Recently I blogged about Sustainable sneakers, e-Write Boards and the MacBook Air but this next product is in a whole other league. Pity it doesn’t really exist, but we can play pretend can’t we.

It’s an idea I’m sure many a designer has day-dreamed about,imagining what a utopian dream world they could create if only their tools were … “Hey, snap out of it”. Ok Ok, I know it’s just an idea, but you have to give it to the people who put this presentation together, very slick. We have to think big and dare to be different before we can really achieve something truly innovative. Someone has to be willing to start putting the pen to paper on these crazy cool ideas and motivating the scientists to get their nano’s in order. Check these out.
I’d like to see a e-Reader in this format, something I can fold up and put into my back pocket when I need to. Hey I see the GTD crew going to town with something like this. But seriously, the technology has to exist to create something if not exactly like this, but close enough. Suppose it’s a bit of an expensive task but with notebooks getting thinner & smaller and screen , multi touch,disc storage, wireless and nano technology being pushed heavily in all directions I’d give it another 5 years and we might be seeing a few of these products finding their way into our lives.
I love what the designers of these visuals have done here, I call this juicy graphics, something you’d love to just take a bite out of. Head on over to Yanko Design for more cool ideas and products you can sink your teeth into.
