Hollywood Sign Hotel Concept

As far as I know the original "Hollywood" sign isn't anything close to the size depicted here, but you've gotta love Danish architecture firm Bay Arch's concept of turning it into a mixed-use commercial complex. The chief draw would be a 300 room hotel in the facade, but the nine letters would also house a wellness center and spa, a nightclub and of course, a movie theater.


Volkswagen E-Bike

Check out VW's new electric bike concept, designed to fold into a circle that fits in the compartment previously occupied by the spare tire.

With a range of 12.5 miles, the pedal-less bike is not meant to be a long-hauler, but it would make a neat accessory if you were touring, say, European cities; you could drive to one, ditch the car and buzz around on a bike to see the sights. And it's designed to be charged up by the car itself, meaning you don't have to find a wall to plug it into.

Techart Panamera Black Edition

Completely swathed in matte black, Techart's latest model features their aerodynamic kit, 22-inch alloy wheels (painted in black, of course), daytime running lights and a custom exhaust system. The color theme continues on the inside with black leather and Alcantara seating in addition to a matte black dashboard, door panel trim, center console, air vents, cup holder and pretty much anything else that can be painted.

The price for the Black Edition? €220,000, which is nearly an €85,000 premium over the base price of a Panamera Turbo in Germany.


iPhone 4

An Apple employee left the next generation iPhone in a bar, someone found it, and now the good people at Gizmodo have given it the full inspection.

Click here for the video.

What's new

• Front-facing video chat camera
• Improved regular back-camera (the lens is quite noticeably larger than the iPhone 3GS)
• Camera flash
• Micro-SIM instead of standard SIM (like the iPad)
• Improved display. It's unclear if it's the 960x640 display thrown around before—it certainly looks like it, with the "Connect to iTunes" screen displaying much higher resolution than on a 3GS.
• What looks to be a secondary mic for noise cancellation, at the top, next to the headphone jack
• Split buttons for volume
• Power, mute, and volume buttons are all metallic

What's changed

• The back is entirely flat, made of either glass (more likely) or ceramic or shiny plastic in order for the cell signal to poke through. Tapping on the back makes a more hollow and higher pitched sound compared to tapping on the glass on the front/screen, but that could just be the orientation of components inside making for a different sound
• An aluminum border going completely around the outside
• Slightly smaller screen than the 3GS (but seemingly higher resolution)
• Everything is more squared off
• 3 grams heavier
• 16% Larger battery
• Internals components are shrunken, miniaturized and reduced to make room for the larger battery

How cool would it be to slide your iPad into a desktop-sized arcade cabinet and rock it old school with some Pac-Man or Space Invaders?

Enter the iCade iPad Arcade Cabinet! To use the iCade, gently slide the iPad into the docking cradle. The docking cradle uses a standard 30 pin connector to link the iPad to the professional-grade arcade controls. Once the iPad is in place, launch the iCade App (available free in the App Store April 3rd) and it's game on! We didn't want to take any chances you'd run out of juice during your favorite game, so we included a 10w USB power adapter so you can charge the iPad through any electrical outlet. Now you're all set to make an uninterrupted run on the Dig Dug World Record!


Mobiado CPT001

The luxury phone maker Mobiado is back with yet another striking creation, the CPT001 concept phone. Highlighting the creativity of Mobiado, the CPT001 is made from one piece of solid marble with gold-filled engraved letters and details. The touchscreen of the phone is fashioned from a single large piece of sapphire. The buttons and watch crown are made from solid gold, and there is a brilliant gold skeleton mechanical watch movement positioned between the “Call” and “End” buttons. Mobiado says that the concept of a marble phone may sound a bit unusual, but that’s what they call “out-of-the-box’ thinking in design.
