    “holographic display, smartphone integration, Bluetooth speakers”…

    Why not – washing machine, 40 inches TV, microwave oven?

    Sometimes I wonder where those designers are living?
    Do they like to be just designers, or to bring something useful to the world?

    People need something simple, cheap and above all – useful…
    The icons of the design and popularity are the first VW beetle because it was cheap and affordable and high quality. The same is with Fiat500 (the old model, with new one – FIAT screw up).
    Kalashnikov is another example.

    I hardly wait to see an article about the electric bike which will be designed for the people and not for the news…
