These concept designs may not be on the market yet, but they can still inspire you to create something just as futuristic and exciting online.
The designs may be impractical in some cases, but the idea is to put the concept out to the world to see how it evolves and grows.
Remember that these are all just conceptual, you can’t buy them yet! Some may be closer to being produced than others, particularly when they come from a large company like Braun or Samsung. Otherwise, who knows if or when they will be available.
This is an elegant concept created by designer D.K. Wei. The Cloud sofa is supposed to give one the illusion of floating on their own personal cloud. A magnet in the base is supposed to generate enough magnetic force to hold the sofa aloft. The cloud is constructed from a plexiglass mold.

This concept design was inspired by the curves and tapering of the Macbook Air coupled with the look of an iPod Touch. Rodolphe Desmare is responsible for this iPhone concept, which is more notable for its imagined features than its looks. The front camera would allow video conferencing on the iPhone, something that the blogosphere is already very excited about as a potential feature for the new release of the iPhone.
iPhone 4G Concept
This fantasy iPhone mimics both the look of Mac OS/X and the aluminum case of a MacBook Pro. We couldn’t suss out the real name of the designer but you can see more pictures from this designer under his handle “youngSpace” at Flickr. The video capability in this design preceded the one in the iChat, above. The removable battery is also tantalizing.

The Polygon concept bike was designed by Reindy Allendra. Inspired by the design of human DNA, this bike has controls for your iPod/MP3 Player built in to the steering area.

BMW 2015 Concept Car
The final thesis of the Transportation Design students at Turin-based IED (Instituto Europeo di Design), developed in partnership with BMW towards the goal of creating a car for 2015 within the BMW brand philosophy.
Scarab was also designed by David Gonçalves. This concept vehicle features styling straight out of “Tron”. The four wheeled, single passenger vehicle has all of the thrill of a motorcycle with the safety of an enclosed cab. Included in the feature set is the ability to run either on batteries or on a biofuel internal combustion engine.
This innovative “Transparent Toaster” concept uses special heating glass to warm a single slice of bread. Unfortunately, the glass does not reach a high enough temperature — at this time — to actually toast the bread.
Incredible LED Watch
This watch was created by Hironao Tsuboi and developed by the studio found here. The watch looks like it’s all wristband until the digital display lights up.
