Mobile Phone Airbag: Spring-Loaded Legs Deploy to Save Dropped Devices

[ By WebUrbanist in Gadgets & Geekery & Technology. ]

Protecting better than conventional cases or edge bumpers, this “active dampening” unit acts like an airbag for your portable handheld gadget, springing to action as it heads toward the concrete sidewalk or hardwood floor below.

Award-winning German mechatronics design student Philip Frenzel designed the ADcase with four “legs” that auto-detect a phone’s fast motion, flipping out to slow it down upon impact. The protrusions can then be tucked back in for repeated use.

Currently a prototype, its popularity has already leant the innovation success in crowdfunding leading toward commercial production — the extra depth added by the attachment will also optionally house additional battery and a charger.

Screen time: digital displays bring art to your home at the touch of a button

<p>Disruption has been the buzz business idea of the last decade. Uber, Airbnb and other champions of the sharing economy are commercial wrecking balls; iTunes, Spotify and similar have upended the music industry, while YouTube and Netflix continue to move the ground under the entertainment behemoths. Up to now, though, the art market has yet to feel the full disruptive force of the digital revolution.</p> <p>There have been efforts to sell immaterial art: Sedition, launched in the UK in 2011 by Harry Blain of blue-chip galleries BlainSouthern and BlainDiDonna, offers members access to a digital vault of limited-edition works from art A-listers such as Tracey Emin, Bill Viola, Michael Craig-Martin, Elmgreen &amp; Dragset and Jenny Holzer, with prices starting from just &pound;5. Yet digital art remains a tiny part of the total art market: according to a recent report by British insurer Hiscox and market research company ArtTactic, online art sales currently represent 2.4 per cent of the $65bn global art market. But only 0.5 per cent of those sales are for digital art, as opposed to physical art.</p> <p>A wave of new launches is determined on creating a sharp upswing in the sales figures for digital art, bringing digital art into the domestic sphere with hardware-to-software-to-content propositions and a radically democratic model of art distribution and ownership.</p> <p>This May, for example, a Kickstarter-funded New York outfit called Electric Objects launched a high-resolution electronic art screen, while Tokyo-based Framed, also Kickstarter-backed, is to release a similar proposition, though with added gesture controls, later this year. Meural, another New York-based operation, will launch its gesture-controlled screen this autumn, promising access to digital versions of museum-held masterpieces, an instant-access take on the gift-shop print.
