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.

7. Dell Studio Hybrid 

Awards: CES Innovations, IDEA AwardiF Award, Japan’s Good Design Award, Red Dot Award

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.
