Project Ara MDK Launch in January 2015

Thursday, April 17, 2014

How would you like to customize and build your own phone? Google recently announced the Project Ara MDK (Modular Developer Kit), which is expected to launch in January 2015. The device will be called the "Gray Phone". "It’s called the Gray Phone because it’s meant to be drab gray to get people to customize it," It's scheduled to go on sale in January 2015 for around $50.

Google is looking to shake up the smartphone industry with Project Ara, the idea behind the project is that you will not need to buy a new device when you want the latest hardware inside your smartphone.

Instead you swaps components on the modular device, and this allows people to get the latest components they want to suit their phone needs. Would you get one of these?

Pibal Bicycle
Have you seen the Pibal bicycle crossed with what? A scooter. French designer Philippe Starck and car company Peugeot have unveiled a prototype bicycle crossed with a scooter, designed for a free cycle scheme in Bordeaux, France. Good idea. The first 300 units are expected to be manufactured and delivered by Peugeot in June, when they'll be loaned to citizens for Free. I wouldn't mind trying one out, but I don't live France.

Lumen: A Retro Reflective Bicycle

Wednesday, April 2, 2014

Lumen Reflective Bike
This is an interesting idea and looks to keep the cyclist safe while riding at night. The Lumen is a retro-reflective coating bicycle inspired by late nights, city lights, and full moons. By day its frame and fork appear to be dark gray, but by night they both glow white under direct light. There's no on/off switch, no batteries required.

This is there third Kickstart and if you pledge $499 on Kickstarter you get just the frame and fork. If you want the whole bike you're looking at spending anywhere from $1245 to $2500.  Check out the there Kickstarter to get more information.
