In the market for a camera that can focus -- after your pic is snapped?
How about a solar-powered source of clean water?
One of our favorite design blogs, Core77, which recognizes the most innovative in tech -- ranging from interactive design and consumer products to transportation and social impact -- recently announced the winners of this year's best designs.
Here are a few of our faves:
Consumer Products Professional Winner: Lytro Light Field Camera
An entirely new vision on an age-old mechanism, the Lytro Light Field Camera throws away conventional thinking in the shape and structure of the traditional camera, developing, instead, a sleek, simple tube (much like a kaleidoscope). The light-field technology allows the user to focus a photo after it’s been taken, and the design lets you zoom by sliding your finger up and down its side.
Social Impact Professional Winner: Eliodomestico
Eliodomestico is an “eco-distiller” that runs on solar power, with no filters, and uses a design that can be produced by local craftsmen. The result: easy, clean water access (up to five liters a day) for residents of the developing world.
Transportation Professional Winner: The Revolights bike lighting system
No more nerdy blinking lights clipped in awkward places! Safety just got baller. The Revolights system includes a series of LED rings that fasten to the wheels of your bike, acting as both a heads-up to drivers and as headlights for the cyclist. Jury comments: “It also provides a nice visual effect when stopped and an overall unique graphic signature.” Translation: “It also looks pretty friggin’ sweet.”
Eco-distillers? LED bike lights? Sold to Team Glittarazzi!
