Cool Futuristic/Concept Gadgets That Really Inspire
Note: This post was first published on the 22nd July, 2008.
About 10 years ago, we didn’t really expect the 1.4MB 3.5 inch floppy to evolve into flash drives 10x smaller with storage capacity as big as 32GB. The interesting thing about technology is; that it’s just going to get more and more high-end, but the size will just get smaller and slimmer.
These concept gadgets you see before you today have an extremely high chance of getting into production anywhere in the future. For example, Microsoft’s Surface Computing Technology certainly tells us they are for real. Here are some cool concept gadgets, just concepts for now, but we hope they’ll be implemented that inspires. If we happen to miss something impressive, please let us know in the comments. Full list after the jump.
