A new creation from Microsoft Research designers strikes with its futuristic but elegant outlook. A high-tech frock developed by Asta Roseway, a senior designer at Microsoft Research, and Sheridan Martin Small from Xbox, allows you to type out anything you like and wear in public. This is a really new step in the art of fashion, which gives trendsetters an opportunity to manifest their individuality.

Electrolux named the finalists of the 2011 Design Lab. This is the 9th annual competition for international designers to demonstrate their intellectual mobile innovations. Eight finalists were chosen from 1,300 participants by a jury of expert designers. The jury considered the entries based on intuitive design, innovation and consumer insight. The winner will receive the first prize of a six-month paid internship at an Electrolux global design centre and 5,000 Euros. A second prize of 3,000 Euros and third prize of 2,000 Euros are also on offer.
