Enter the great wave of excitement around Apple/Mac concept design. Daily, the inspiring team of coders and designers come up with some of the most innovative, jaw-dropping, and sometimes, ridiculous ideas for the next best thing in Apple’s future.

Here are a few concepts we found awesome and ridiculous

Awesome: LCD iView

The LCD iView is a Mac concept design. The iView is the first screen with two distinctive characteristics: a double panoramicscreen with a unique curvature accompanying the natural eye curvature and movement.

Ridiculous: MacPad

MacPad is another Mac concept design. Although the idea is equipped with a convenient sliding mechanism that can display and vanish the keyboard at your convenience, the look and feel of the device is completely contradictory to Mac’s widely popular, minimal physique.

Best: MacBook Duo

A hybrid device that is a unique combination of Apple’s existing portable media device technology with an e-reader/netbook. The MacBook Duo would offer enough usability in each arena to make it a standalone solution for frequent travelers. Work, browse, read, write, share and play all on one device.

Daaaaang: Apple-inspired Superyacht

Venus is the result of what happens when the superyacht concept and a design guru collide. Venus officially launched on a Sunday in the Dutch port of Aalsmeer, just over a year after the Apple co-founder, Steve Jobs, died.

Halloween Horror, Apple style.

iOS Device + Halloween Costume  = Win.

As seen in the below video, NASA engineer Mark Rober cleverly reinvented the wheel in terms of modern costume design. No need to be fancy and spend hunders of dollars on individual trinkets: all you need is an iPad or iPhone to create a scary (or hilarious) halloween costume. Available in various haunting styles (and even custom looks you can make on your own), your next halloween costume could be one iPad away.
