If apple somehow start a lightsaber bussiness, iSaber in this post is probably what they’d look like. 3D modeler extraordinaire Martin Hajek went ahead and designed this iSaber. Designed by Apple in Tatooine, and assembled in Hoth, this fictional energy weapon has been cleverly visualized to include all the telltale design cues of a real Apple product. Called “an elegant weapon for a more civilized age”, it comes with three editions: gold, silver and space gray. No one knows when the iSaber will in your pocket.
USB warming coffee mug is not something “New”, but this iCup has something different – it is created because of designer’s love for the Apple brand. Vancouver-based designer Tomislav Zvonarić created this iCup, an apple-shaped mug which sits on small heating plate which can be connected to your computer via a USB cord. There is nothing special about its funcationality, just keep your coffee (tea, milk, etc) warm as long as you need. But you have to admit its design is quite eye-catching, no matter you are apple fan or not. The Apple iCup comes with a saucer and a coffee spoon, both of which are also made in the form of an apple with a bite mark in it. Moreover, in Tomislav’s clever design, the stem of apple is not only decoration but also doubles as mug handler. Quite interesting concept right?
Still remember Viktor Hertz, the artist behind the Hilarious Honest Logos? This creative guy just came up another funny series called “Think Different: Apple Tribute“, where he’s taken that iconic Apple logo and made several variations of it which are often times laugh out loud funny and other times just quite clever. The idea behind this series is: The Apple logo is just such a strong one, everyone recognizes it and have their own relation to it. Viktor Hertz thought it could be fun to elaborate with the concept and create a set with new ways of thinking. Below is some of our favorite and you can find more on Viktor’s flickr. Hope it can be a great inspiration for your next Logo Design. [source]
