World-recognized strategy, innovation, and design consultancy RKS is proud to announce that JBL has introduced the next generation of its groundbreaking, industry-standard EON® series portable loudspeakers. JBL’s unveiling of the EON500 series powered and lightweight speakers immediately raises the bar in the category of molded powered loudspeakers in all aspects, from industrial design to sonic performance, integrated utility and portability.
“We congratulate JBL on the incredible reception received by the release of the new EON,” said Ravi Sawhney, Founder and CEO of RKS. “We’re thrilled that our collaboration and JBL’s leadership have taken powered PA to a whole new level.”
The resulting design is a striking departure from the original EON. The full, foam-backed, perforated metal grill provides an added measure of protection to internal components, while offering a clean, uncluttered look to the entire line. The speaker’s shape, like the EON’s power, projects from the rear of the speaker where the amp is housed. “The design flows from the back of the speaker in a single, accelerating curve,” explained Lance Hussey, RKS Vice President of Design. The bold port vents, provide a visual accent and evoke fond memories of the original EON.
To minimize abuse to the speakers and users alike, the design team removed all the hard edges and corners. “Not only does that make it very durable, but also very comfortable to move around, there are no corners to bash into your knees and your legs and things or slide in and out of your car,” said Jones. The EON500 series includes three lightweight compact models that each feature an on-board minimixer with loop-thru or mix-out capability. The EON515 puts out a massive 450 watts of power, yet weighs only 33 lbs.
To take full advantage of JBL’s lightweight technology, this flagship EON features three handles. Each full-bar handle, one on the top and one on each side, is placed for optimal ergonomics and balance, and over-molded with a soft comfort-grip. Pole-mounting speakers has never been easier. No more bending over to lift the speaker off the floor. Just grab the top handle, and then easily switch to the side handles as you effortlessly lift the speaker and set it atop the pole.
This is an attempt to design a new cell phone for HTC that is known as one of cool mobile phone manufacturers at this moment. Sylvain Gerber, the designer, offers an innovative and original design with the same creative spirit in HTC Gemstone. He uses some of the design codes of the HTC diamond 1 and 2 but plays more on the bright lights of precious stones with these metal shells that reflect the splendor of the gem. This phone features android system and a AMOLED screen. There’s animated graphic engraved at the back of the cover to remind you the geometric shapes of gemstones. Sylvain said he tried to combine technology and luxury into this cell phone design.
Totem is the perfect solution for anyone who lives in a small space apartment or travelers. It is a multi functional modular food system that enables you to prepare and cook by simply stack and flip the units. Due to its simplistic design, this unit allows you to perform in any situation; in fact, it doesn’t require main power source since the exterior has been coated with EnSol, spray-on solar cell technology. Totem is capable of performing various kitchen tasks in any location by stacking flipping, and building the units for your specific requirements. It uses less energy and space. Even when you are in remote locations, you can still use this cooking device.
Each unit has the same capabilities to cook, clean, chill, and freeze. However, the orientation of each unit determines the mode. If you want to bake a cake, just combine several units together to form a hexagon. If you want to fry something, just flip it.
