It'd be kind of neat if the shuffle was horizontal and had a display like DJ's concept has. I can picture holding it like that. :)

I was thinking some thing more like this. It would fold up into the typical shuffle size, press a release catch and the screen would swing out. The movement could be dampened like those casette decks from the 1980s or could be undampend like a switch knife or the 'phone from the matrix.

This is a very quick and dirty mockup (modified from CoMpX's excellent concept) - sorry about the poor quality shading.

I like that, it's a really cool concept. i especially like the "super wide-screen" type of effect you get. The screen would have to be color of course. :D

How about that design, but with a cover that would slide over the screen to protect it, but not cover the whole shuffle so one could still use the controls with the cover on. Either way it would be awesome.

Here is my quick little idea.

A better cell phone + iTunes.

Wouldn't work for making outgoing calls though unless the numbers were pre-programmed into the phone. Or maybe scrolling across the screen to get the numbers to dial. I will put something together later that I think would work out a lot better for a all in one PDA/iPod/Cellphone similar to some larger devices; just smaller and better.

The idea is that once opened, there would be a numerical pad inside, like every other cell phone; that is just the outside front when it is closed.

or, the click wheel could be used to select numbers from an on-screen display, elliminating the need for number keys entirely.

except that it would have to be one aspect, and films can come out in several - 16x9, anamaphoric, 4:3, etc...

I'd want the 30" iMac to get rid of the chin... I think the display should go all the way to the edges (like the top and sides of the current ones) even around the bottom. Because of the screen size, the components should fit easily.

calebjohnston
Mar 7, 2006, 08:25 AM
Yeah, if they ever made a 30" iMac, I'm sure they wouldn't need the big chin anymore. Possibly just enough to have the apple logo displayed on front.

Here's my iPhone concept. It's in the Nano case (1g) but it's a little thicker, and it has a special coating to keep it from scratching. The buttons are touch sensitive, like the Chocolate. The buttons change for what you're using it for (phone or iPod) and it's solid black when it's off (can't see buttons/click wheel/screen).

The buttons are actually a touch screen, so you can change the color of the buttons.

Size - iPod Mini,
Model Name - NewtonM - in homage to the Newton and the fact its a smartphone rather than a music phone.

Techniques used to produce imagery.

Initial modelling in solidworks, exported via stl to 3ds max, then its all rendered, nothing apart from the outside border was added in photoshop although the screen was produced in photoshop :)

It's kinda cool to look at all the mockups that people make (before the product they are mocking up is released) and compare it to the way the actual Apple product looks. For example, the iPhone. Everyone (ok, not everybody) thought it would be the iPod case with phone capabilities. But then it turned out so much different. The OP did an amazing job of predicting what the Mac Pro would look like, it is quite exact, other than the placement of the USB ports and FW (they are horizontal) etc. But that was really cool. I bet nobody was able to predict the insides, though.

Is that a second screen on the back? I don't understand the point of it.

The designer said a second built in LCD screen on the back would be useful for students and graphic designers, I don't really know what he meant by that. I think it would be useful when dealing with clientele sitting on the opposing end of your desk. But I think it's mainly and simply an aesthetic attribute, desktop patterns can be displayed on that screen to personalize the unit, harking back to the original iMac days, bondi blue et al.

A working LG model of that particular design aspect can be found here.

Agreed, I imagined a more rounded design like the current iPhone but didn't really have the time to manipulate it to where I wanted it.

More of a "get it out of my head and onto the screen" mockup, 20 minutes tops.

I may revisit it and make a proper mockup.

Not really. But it certainly isn't perfect, thus the "quick" mock-up. I didn't spend much time getting it as flat as it should be, etc.

I like it a lot.

I imagine it looking a lot like that but maybe using the matte black of the iMac's back on top with the glossy black logo.

What would be sweet is if they merge the time capsule and tv. Those are two machines that one machine could easily do. Although, seeing as how I just bought a 1 TB Time Capsule a month or two ago and want to buy an tv after Macworld expo, I'd be a little "Son of a..."

Quick mockup of what I want from a redesigned iPhone

I really like this as well. I think it fits in with their line of products much better than the current iPhone.

The Aluminum on the back looks amazing and I like the black button contrast on the front.

This would match my iMac quite nicely :D.

Agreed, I actually didn't believe the rumors and leaked photos of the 3G before release because they went completely against where Apple design was at and moving towards. It was a major step backwards in design.

As far as the remote, my mockup would simply make it less overpriced, imo. But I doubt Apple's going to be using aluminum for their tiny things, unfortunately.

Quite true. Seeing as how cheap pieces of plastic and silicone for iPod and iPhone cases are usually $29, I'd think it would have to be that price or more.

I don't imagine a radical departure for the Mac Pro, but more of an evolution.

The cheese grater front gets the "tiny hole" look of the MacBook Pro speaker grilles and the stealth blended power button. Loses the plastic trim on all of the ports.

The logos on the side are shiny black. That's it. Subtle and sharp.

I may take a crack at it...

I just can't imagine a Mac Pro family member with slot loading drives, it's not part of the family history!

Compared to?

I think it's a classic design. I don't see the need for it to be revolutionized, just pushed into the future a little.

I honestly don't know what Apple has planned, I really can't imagine a better designed case, inside or out.

I agree. Although it's a classic look, so were the last PowerBooks and other designs, but things need fresh looks. Updating the Mac Pro with the shiny black apple logo and other minor details simply matches it to Apple's latest design schemes. Apple's usually better than that, so I'm hoping they WILL redesign the Mac Pro more noticeably. The current Mac Pro is not particularly impressive on the outside. It's a huge tower with a handle on each corner. I think Apple will be able to do better.

It would have the connections on the top so that the wires can go through the hole in the iMac stand, and fan vents could be on top and/or on the back. Small, white-light use indicator on the front.

Two decent concepts in my opinion both shaped in a typical iPod way, in fact I think they should totally get rid of the click wheel as well as the iPod touch brand, and move on solely with touchscreens, albeit with physical play/pause & forward/shuffle buttons on the side. With the nano being flash based and the bigger 'classics' with a high capacity hard drive.

the thing is though...some people do not want to always use a touch screen, and a click wheel really is a great to change songs and stuff without looking up from what you are doing.

I just think that the click wheel is iconic. Whenever someone sees that wheel, their minds automatically go to iPods and Apple. I don't think Apple would be too quick to give it up.
