I am not typically into this topic, but I figured I would throw it down...
I always think the microwave is a significant challenge. :idea:

It's probably the most common every day devices that we take for granted.
The components are relativeley simple - A Magnatron, a turntable, and interface, a door, a vent.
With great ideas come great improvements...

Cost targets for low to high, recyclable to green. Take your pick.

My favourite class during Uni was concept design, in which we had to "design" (to concept stage) and comunicate the idea with an A3 board. Could this be a basis for the competition?

The next challenge should take-up redesigning this Discussion Board...I think we can all agree its a bit graphically challenged for a design site. :)

How about this?

Two ideas inspired from the Core Blog:

1.

Take a buzzword table like this and design the product that matches what you select. Like a rubberized 12-ply bamboo milk frother.

2. I like the Nokia headphones inspired from songs. Maybe we could do chairs based on the movie character that would use them or something?

Sorry if this has already been mentioned or done, I haven't read through the whole thread. I liked the idea of being able to reuse something like the business cards. I've seen a lot of ideas of what to do with toilet/paper towel tubes after the paper is spent, but I think we could come up with some better designs.

+1, let's that this!



Or do the new GM line. Retro is chic so how about we revisit the Matador, Javelin, Gremlin, Eagle, and Pacer. (AMC cars....)

I'd like to see all the car fanatics here design a cool Yugo! We always complain about why they always make cheaper cars and hybrids so ugly.

Watching "Who Killed the Electric Car" the other day made me think about something. Maybe they do it on purpose because they don't really want you to buy them. I think it's a little obvious with the cheaper cars, companies always want to lead you to their more expensive products but with the "revolutionary" all electric cars, etc..they only made them at that time because they had to, but they didn't really want to make them or have anyone buy them. So part of the strategy is making them ugly, use depressing advertisements, etc..., so that they'd have poor sales so they could scrap them and get back to focusing on the gas guzzling cash cows.

So lets see a cool $2000 "Yugo-ish" car that people would WANT to drive without being embarassed. One that the car companies would never release in a million years because they'd lose half their profit if too many people would be satisfied with it :D

and nexus edge,

allright, quite a good case with big space.. but isn't that kinda plain? kinda big black box :roll:

so a good looking full tower pc case (well no tiny video game consol or htpc or notebook design) with a large space for water cooling system is my suggestion.

And, they are all eyesores. Personally, I'm tired of looking at any of them ... mine lives in a cabinet under the desk where I don't have to see it.

What I would like to see developed is a single, multi conductor cable that eliminates the rat's nest of wires at the back; power, mouse, CRT, printer, internet, speakers, etc.

Almost every advertisement you see shows the computer sitting on a desk, free of any visible means of contact with the outside world. I want that computer.
