Zero Mouse makes mousing feel more like ironing

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on March 11th, 2009

Zero Mouse makes mousing feel more like ironingThis is bound to be the preferred mouse of housewives and maids everywhere. Shunning conventional computer mouse design, Oliver Rosito’s Zero Mouse concept “combines state of the art design with lightweight materials.”

We’re just a little concerned that the lack of side grips may have your grandmother holding it like an iron and accidentally fake-ironing your shirt, which has now become a mousepad, while chatting on the Martha Stewart forums and playing online bingo.

Cadillac WTF: Zero maintenance with 24 wheels

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on January 14th, 2009

Cadillac WTF: Zero maintenance with 24 wheelsHere’s one hell of a conceptual design: the Cadillac World Thorium Fuel concept. Otherwise known as the Cadillac WTF. It was created by Loren Kulesus. Everything about the aptly named WTF has been created to last for 100 years without maintenance. That’s the reason for the element number ninety, thorium: to act as a nuclear fuel powering batteries that would power this beast.

Also, every major system is redundant just in case of a failure. Even the wheels are covered and shouldn’t give you much trouble. The wheels don’t have individual tires. In fact, what you get is one combined unit made up of six individual wheels. That gives you 24 wheels in all, and each wheel has its own induction motor just for good measure. According to the creator, “The vehicle would require the tires to be adjusted every five years, but no material would need to be added or subtracted.”

Fridge uses zero electricity, cools with fire

Fridge uses zero electricity, cools with fireA research team at Stanford has developed a refrigeration device the size of a thermos. What’s interesting is that it uses no electricity. Zip. Zero. Nada. Zilch. Instead, it contains some kind of coolant that becomes cold when it’s exposed to heat.

Details are scarce, but the units would be fairly cheap to produce at about $50. The price makes it an ideal way to deliver medicines and cold water to developing countries as well as having a bunch of other uses a bit more noble then your next camping trip. It’s a great breakthrough. All a user would need to cool any given thing is fire, which is readily available.

Mercedes-Benz Formula Zero luxury racer

Mercedes-Benz Formula Zero luxury racerThis is how Mercedes-Benz sees the future of racing. Formula Zero racing combines elements from land yachting, the luge, and Formula One of course, but it also incorporates environmental responsibility. Each team has a certain amount of energy to complete the race, and points are awarded based on elapsed time and energy efficiency.

It’s all very futuristic since it’s to take place in the future. The race will even be run on a glass track allowing the audience to watch the race from below. How’s that for a view? Will it ever happen? Maybe one day. Or maybe we’ll just see certain elements. But probably not for many years to come.
