Daizi Zheng designed this Nokia concept phone to suck carbohydrates (sugar) out of liquids and convert it to the energy it needs to keep you connected, so all you have left after you finished talking is pure, eco- friendly water. The so called “bio battery” is said to keep your mobile device running “three to four times longer than conventional lithium batteries”, and “is fully biodegradable”. So the only drawback would be that you´d have to share your loved softdrinks- but hey, in this kind of future you would finally be able to make better use of your free refills.

Look at that, somebody finally found a way to hide all these toys you would love to spend a pile of money on in something more, well, practical. This 2.2m westminster chiming grandfather clock is a piece of designer Ryan McElhinney, who also gets some credits over at imdb. I would just love to have one of these reminding me every 15 minutes that time is ticking, but i guess these beauties are not priced to sell to the average geek. You can enjoy some more images plus a golden lamp after the break, for the full product catalog, visit Ryan´s website. (Found that at Gizmodo who found it at Dezeen)
