Mathieu Lehanneur has redesigned the watch and named it Take Time. To be precise he has stripped away all the parts which he possibly could and has produced a watch with a silicone wristband and an intuitive fastening method. Apparently it can be worn on your wrist (no surprises there) as well as around your belt loop in a sort of timepiece fashion statement. We couldn't currently find them on sale anywhere but expect to find them online and at your local knock-off market stand pretty soon.
Lomography have taken their inspiration for their latest venture into the retro camera from an unusual source. A sardine can. Yes, a sardine can. The shiny metal strips is a bit of a giveaway but we have been assured by sources that this model takes pretty good photos. The over-sized flash was inspired by a wide eyed sardine eyeball, staring back in astonishment at the fact they've been caught by fishermen. It isn't. We made that up. The entire package retails for £179 and has sold so well it's currently out of stock, no doubt back very soon. Lomography website.

What a simple and extremely well executed concept this is. The Rimino is the brainchild of Amid Moradganjeh. A concept piece of work which impressively blends a minimalist UI with great technology. This is Amid describing his own work
" Project Rimino redefines mobile experience through human factors research and design thinking. Informed by human experience, the project is guided by both observational and experimental design research methods. The Rimino concept is an E-paper mobile device with a user interface inspired by print posters. Historically, as technology has progressed, devices have become more conspicuous. Rimino challenges this trend and presents the alternative: technology that is more integrated and more sensitive to the human experience."
