Samsung has not only released several smartphones with advanced display technologies, like the Galaxy Z Fold and Galaxy Z Flip, but they’re still developing new ones. Designer Pranab P Kumar gives us a preview of one such device, called the Galaxy Stick, and it has a slide-out OLED display. When not in use, the display is hidden inside the mobile phone’s frame and at the push of a button, it slides out. There’s a smaller secondary touchscreen for notifications and the fingerprint scanner.
Created by designer Greg Brown, the Firenze Lanciare just might be the world’s first flying supercar concept that is actually plausible, or so we think. Boasting retractable wings extended, it’s powered by two Williams FJ-33 jet engines producing 2,000 pounds when in the air, enabling it to cruise at 520 mph and a range of 850 miles, thanks to a 300-gallon fuel tank. When on land, the vehicle utilizes two electric motors that generate a combined 1,000 horsepower, which means a 0-60 mph time of under four seconds.

All the way back in 1897, electric cars existed and found their first commercial use as taxis in Britain as well as the United States. Unfortunately, internal combustion engines (ICE) in the first decade of the 20th century took away the advantages that electric cars had due to their quicker refueling times, and cheaper production costs. However, if electric race cars existed in the 1940s, it would probably look something like Alex Baldini’s Helvezzia Tipo-6.

First introduced in 1998, the Audi TT is a 2-door sports car now in its third generation. The takes TT name comes from the successful motor racing tradition of NSU in the British Isle of Man TT (Tourist Trophy) motorcycle race. With that said, what if the automaker were to create a futuristic up-sized, four-door concept based on this platform? Meet the Audi GT concept by designer Jordan Gendler. In addition to the four-door model, he also envisions a race car variant.

The 1995 film Waterworld is set in the distant future where the polar ice cap has completely melted, and the sea level has risen over 25,000-feet, covering nearly all of the Earth’s land. If this scenario were to ever become a reality, Dada “Currents of Currents” proposal are perfect. Put simply, they are modular floating homes that can easily be setup and transported just about anywhere in the world.
