Here are the some of the notable designs by the Fahrenheit Design Group –
1. Vidya AR Wearable
Awards: Spark Design Awards, Xingshi Cup Finalist
Vidya is a concept for a wearable that provides real-time feedback to yoga students using augmented reality (AR). Observing and talking to several yoga teachers, the design team developed their version of “the future of a yoga class.” The idea was to transform the traditional yoga practice into an experience that offers personalized information throughout the class.
The designers designed a device that is comfortable to wear while practicing yoga. Students can view themselves performing a pose on the device while receiving feedback on how they can improve. Furthermore, they can always see the instructor using AR, regardless of their head orientation. Being able to see the instructor is an important feature.
2. Spracht Aura EQ Bluetooth Headset
Awards: CES Innovation 2010
The Spracht Aura EQ headset has an edgy design to match its innovative technology. The capacitive volume control slider on the top surface adds a subtle yet intuitive feature. Moreover, the amplifier is equipped with a unique DSP (Digital Signal Processor) technology for augmented hearing in numerous situations.
3. Sportline Safety Light
The clip-on flashing light is primarily for runners and walkers. The 3-mode flashing light alerts motorists of the exerciser’s location, improving safety day or night.
4. Spree Sports Headband
Jointly developed with IDM Tech. Spree provides athletes with the most accurate readings of body temperature, heart rate, and calories burned. It obtains biometric information comfortably through the forehead. It is the only workout device with body temperature monitoring so you get an effective workout without the risk of overheating.
Using Bluetooth technology, Spree transmits biometric information to a smartphone app wirelessly during workouts. Fitness goals become more attainable and tangible when users can assess their progress in real-time.
5. Grok Wellness Tracker
It relies on social media and game-based challenges and rewards to motivate people to be active and get outdoors. Using multiple sensors, Grok collects information about a user’s activity. Users are provided with real-time feedback on its display, and GrokLife teams are notified of activity via Bluetooth & WiFi. In addition to achieving personal goals and contributing to the team goal, users can earn trophies and discounts from their favorite brands. Grok’s friendly pebble-like form is designed to be worn comfortably in a variety of positions. The tracker can be carried in a pocket, attached to a belt or clothing, or worn around the neck.
6. Dell XPS One
Awards: iF Award, Japan’s Good Design Award, Red Dot Award
This keyboard is designed to support the media-centric lifestyle of the XPS ONE product. This keyboard eliminates the need for a computer mouse or TV remote control. Users have complete control over PC and TV experiences with a touchpad that takes care of cursor control, navigation, and multimedia functions. Capacitive touch multimedia keys illuminate when the user touches them, for a unique experience.
7. Dell Studio Hybrid
Awards: CES Innovations, IDEA Award, iF Award, Japan’s Good Design Award, Red Dot Award
The real challenge of a design is not always coming up with a unique shape but making it a reality. For the Studio Hybrid, Dell enlisted Fahrenheit to help pack a full PC’s computing power into a very compact form, while maintaining the design vision.
The entire design was meticulously planned, resulting in a stylish, elegant, customizable product that will fit into any room. Besides being beautiful, it is also environmentally responsible, using 70 percent less energy and occupying 80 percent less space than a standard mini-tower desktop.
8. Treehouse Labs BiKN Smart Case and Tags
Awards: CES Innovations, IDEA Award
Users can track and find all their valuable items using BiKN (bēk´-in) iPhone Smart Case and Tags, including their mobile phone, keys, purse, backpack, kids, pets, and more. The BiKN Smart Case and Tags contain a compact, low-power wireless radio, and a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery. The case connects to iPhone via a docking connector and the BiKN iPhone app helps you to inventory, track, and find all of your important stuff. Even a phone with a dead battery or that is off can be found.
Both the case and tag feature a sophisticated and robust design. They are available in two base colors, with nine accent colors available.
9. Sportline Pocket Bottle
The research discovered that people’s exercising behavior created an opportunity for water bottles that could carry personal effects during exercise. Pocket Bottle’s built-in pocket is designed to hold items such as keys and credit cards, and the pocket itself does not rattle or make noise when used. Designed to not be overly complicated, the Pocket Bottle is an example of a simple solution to a common problem.
10. Biamp Desono Pendant Speakers
Awards: Good Design Award
Jointly developed with IDM Tech, it is the first loudspeaker product designed for Biamp Systems. Two pendant speakers were designed: raindrop with a more traditional ceiling speaker shape and sunshine designed to be more low profile but still offer full sound coverage. They offer superior speech intelligibility and full-range music satisfaction for indoor and outdoor applications.
