Yes, thats true. And that too from Sony. An alarm clock with a brochure saying “how to set alarm”. Though it is a CD player which has alarm clock inside, but seems like Sony has shortage of good designers.. no?
Another one, an interesting “exit” signage in a hotel of Las Vegas (Courtsey: good experience blog). Now after looking at this signage, i question myself, where do a person go to exit?

There was a design competition called “greener gadget design competition” by core77 in conjunction with Greener Gadgets all over world. You can find all entries here. Some of the entries i liked so much. And one of those entries are “eject powerstrip“. The concept behind this product is ..
“Powerstrips have become so cheap and widespread that people fail to notice that they usually have more devices plugged in than they are actually using. So now the questions remain: why don’t people unplug their devices? And can we design a green gadget that would make people unplug their devices when they are not in use? ”
So, Mansour Ourasanah – United States designed a device that would allow people to easily and enjoyably unplug their device. This product has small foot panel to traditional power strip. This pedals are used to unplug the device which are not in use.

One of my favorite destination is IDC (Industrial Design centre, Indian Institute of Technology, Mumbai, India). These days final year batch is busy with their DDS (design degree show) which is from June 9th to June 15. Students of IDC have created some explorations.
This is the one i like the most. Created by Suri Manekar.
Now question comes is-what is Degree 44. The first thing in my mind comes is “it is sure 44th year of IDC”. But, not. This is 39th year of IDC. So finally the idea behind “Degree 44” is,
“This year IDC produces 44 young, spirited, enthusiastic and ambitious designers. The 44 designers are ready to take on creativity, with a fervor of unmet needs of the society and will to make a difference.”
