15 Cool Product Ideas

"15 Incredible Conceptual Designs You Wish Existed"
Creative Closeup (February 17, 2009)

"Imagine the first person that ate a shrimp. That ugly little creature from the sea ended up to taste so damn good. On the other side, consider the poor guy who first tried some stunningly good looking, bright red, little fruits hanging from bushes only to find out that they were deadly poisonous.

"It clear that both shrimps and poisonous red berries didn´t have a product test before being exposed to the humans, just like we have today with consumer products.

"This article gathers a group of 15 useful and enticing conceptual designs that for several reasons may never reach the production stage, but may set a trend and definitely make us whish they really existed...."

It starts out with "Nike Hindsight by Billy May" - sunglasses with Fresnel lenses that let you see (a little) behind you. I wouldn't recommend them for someone suffering from vertigo, but it's a pretty good idea.

Each design has a photo or rendering, and a description.

There's the folding bicycle, a Juke Brick (you'll have to read about that one), and the very weird "Paint or die but love me by John Nouanesing." Wouldn't you know it: The bright red table doesn't really exist, and it's French.

Some of these concepts may not go anywhere, but I wouldn't be surprised to see something like the "Sand+Time watch by Pavel Balykin" or "Flying Stick Camera by Tsunho Wang" on the shelves in a year or so.
