29. High End Public Telephone
30. Universal Charging Dock
The Stream concept by Barton Smith consists of Experience Modules (Media, Memories, Connections, Documents, Creations, Games), a Core Component, Component Modules (processors, memory, graphics, power), a 3.5” Portable Display and Charging Cradle and Universal Charging Base. This product separates computer functions into six categories called ‘experiences’. Currently, if a user wishes to purchase a computer purely for documenting and internet they must accept that it will come with processing power and features well beyond these needs. With the Stream concept users would purchase only the Connections and Documents modules as well as the Core Component to perform only the desired functions. The Connections module also acts as a phone. Visit the product page for more information – there is lots of it.
Tima is a watch concept by Julien Bergignat that allows you to have both a digital display and a classic view of the time.

The Nike Hindsight gives bicyclists a pair of bifocals for their peripheral vision. By using Fresnel lenses on the sides, riders can detect motion in a field of vision beyond the normal human limit of 180º. The obvious benefit is in the early warning of approaching vehicles, but a less obvious advantage is reducing the necessary head rotation to check behind. By Billy May.
