iPod nano redesign: Multitouch, tiny, $149 8GB, $179 16GB

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Apple, Portable Audio / Video

iPod nano multitouch

In addition to all the other news coming out of Apple’s , the company announced a complete redesign of the . The click-wheel is gone, as is a lot of the display size, as Apple instead focused on making this thing more like an iPod shuffle with a multitouch display. The new nano is 46% smaller and 42% lighter than the previous model, and while it gains multitouch and what appears to be a modified version of iOS, it loses the video camera (of course, if you want an iPod with a video camera, the new iPod touch meets that need.) Apple says the battery on the nano will provide 24 continuous hours of audio playback, and the device is available in seven colors. You can get the 8GB model for $149, or the 16GB nano for $179. Pre-orders are live now, and they ship in a week.

Iron Man MacBook decal is awesome

Iron Man MacBook Pro

MacBook decals aren’t new to us, heck I have mine decked out in the Snow’s Revenge vinyl myself, but this Iron Man decal kind of takes the cake in the awesomeness department. What do you think? Are you a fan of the decals? We like them way more than stickers, because they can be easily removed without leaving any sort of residue.

Snow’s Revenge MacBook Pro vinyl

MacBook Pro Snow White vinyl

When I first saw the Snow’s Revenge MacBook Pro image that you see above, I thought it was a clever and unique etching. When I realized that it was simply just a $15 vinyl applique, I bought on immediately. I mean, seriously, how cool is it to see a seemingly dark-sidish Snow White holding on to a glowing Apple? Just saying.

Oh, and speaking of Ms. White, be sure to peep our Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Blu-ray review over in our movie section, FilmCrunch.

Will Alsop Alessi Daytimer Watch - Polygonize Your Wrist!

Will Alsope Alessi Watch

Will Alsop has been designing buildings and public spaces in chic European locales for decades - Hamburg, Marseilles and London to name a few.  Recently he has begun lending his designing eye to Alessi, an Italian design firm responsible for a wide range of products too high-end and/or cerebral for me to understand much less afford. 

One thing that I do understand, though, is my need for ironic/retro kitsch - and nothing says retro kitsch quite like a neon green polygonal watch.  If you are looking for something cool and ergonomic that reminds you a bit of the 80’s yet don’t want to wave your nerd-flag too high with calculator watch then this is the timepiece for you.  At $118.48 (83 Euro) it is a small price to pay for a modernized piece of your childhood… if you were a child in the 80’s.  Wow, having to preface that makes me feel old.  Now where is my Prince - Purple Rain concert t-shirt?

DYA Phone mobile concept

DYA Phone

What you are looking at is a mobile phone concept by tech designer Aran Mun, affectionately called the DYA Phone, but we think it looks more like a DIY phone.  After all, who but a user would come up with a phone covered in elastic paint that protects it from damages?

Not only that, but who would come up with a phone with a set of ordinary looking, out-of-place buttons? Quite frankly, this thing looks like a mess, and the user experience would be fairly intolerable. What do you think?

Altitude LightLane for Bicycles

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Design, Transportation

LightLaneAltitude’s Alex Tee and Evan Gant created a prototype of LightLane for a design competition to promote bicycle commuting. Their thought was that the bike lane should adapt to the cyclist as opposed to visa versa.  The reaction was so positive that, although it did not win, it is becoming a reality nonetheless. The device attaches to the back of the bike and has both bright red LEDs and DPSS green lasers. It comes with a universal attachment bracket and phone charger.
