Eric Dubois of Hope, Rhode Island
iPod in a watch? Absolutely. In fact, we’re kind of surprised this hasn’t already been done. Eric Dubois’s design for an iPod-oriented chronograph was by far the most sophisticated of the entries we saw, to the point where it looks like it’s ready to be shipped to an Apple Store near you. The most clever touch: The wrist strap detaches to reveal a standard port for a docking cable, letting you reload the Watch with tunes and charge it up for another day on the go.
Prixa Souvannavong of Portsmouth, Virginia
Apple hasn’t had a game console on the market in over a decade. Is it time to revisit the idea? Prixa Souvannavong reimagines an Apple-themed gaming device by taking the DNA of the Power Mac G5 and shrinking it to fit under your TV. We love the idea of using the flanged, anodized aluminum handles/stands to elevate the console (which would probably run hot) and give it room for natural cooling. Using a virtual-button touchscreen for the controller instead of real, mashable plastic seems like madness in a shoot-’em-up scenario (since your eyes would be on the TV), but we’d still love to see Apple run with this idea and take it beyond what, say, the Nintendo DS has done.
