Always Take The Weather With You

Always Take The Weather With You

Love the song and the deep meaning of taking the weather with you, albeit only if it’s sunshine and cheery! The thing with weather predictions in most countries is that it’s the most unreliable news relayed on the TV Channels. For example, in my hometown if the station predicts a sunny day, be assured it’s going to rain heavy! To remove this ambiguity about the weather, we have here the StormTag – your personalized weather station.

Living in the U Bubble

Living in the U Bubble

The U-Bubble is a refrigerator that can be suspended in air and is inspired by the soap bubbles that we love so much. It’s basically this plastic construction that is temperature controlled and works with your smart devices. Like most advanced apps, it relays critical food info like quality and freshness state. With the social aspect you can compare food habits and trade recipes with friends.

The Social Gas Mask

The Social Gas Mask

The nature of a gas mask has a negative connotation as it is, but in this example it’s used as a tool with psychological coping during emergency situations. It’s called the Social Gas Mask, and its large eyepieces, cheeky filters and small mouth opening work together to offer an empowering image and positive experience. It facilitates better communication between individuals spending time together in a stressful situation. It’s as friendly as a gas mask could be!

High Fashion Faucet

High Fashion Faucet

The Oblio faucet is entirely different than any you’ve seen, yet just as intuitive to use! Its fluid form mimics that of liquid, reducing visual weight with its compact dimensions. Though complex in appearance, its striking aesthetic is balanced by straightforward functionality. Ideal for dual sinks, the system consists of not one, but two hoses for distinct uses: aPVC section for precision rinsing and a rigid steel section for a stable flow. At the center is a single multidirectional block that controls both pressure & temp of both sides independently.

Sculpture Meets Cycling Machine

Sculpture Meets Cycling Machine

The Vito cycling system dares to be different! As much of an art piece as it is a fitness machine, its unique shape is unlike any other. Complete with an epicycloid transmission system (fancy words for rotational gearing), responsive LED performance lighting as well as mobile/tablet integration, it aims to encourage regular exercise. The longer it’s gone unused, the brighter its red LEDs glow. With its retractable saddle and handlebars, it can be easily tucked away or left out as a sculptural design element in your gym or other workout space.

The Modern Man's Moka Pot

The Modern Man’s Moka Pot

Peter Dudas’ slimOKA gives you the rich, authentic coffee taste of the classic moka pot with the convenience of a modern coffee maker. In black or silver anodized aluminum or steel, its aesthetic is also a modern twist on the classic. At the heart of the design is an electronic system that steam heats coffee with the press of a button, alerts the user with an audible tone when finished, and automatically lowers temperature to keep coffee warm without burning it. Unlike stovetop moka pots which you have to keep an eye on, you can set it and forget it!

New Parents' Best Friend

New Parents’ Best Friend

After almost losing their minds trying and failing to figure out how to operate a baby monitor to keep an eye on their first-born, designers Satu Niemelä and Erasmus van Niekerk vowed to create an easy-to-use monitoring solution with even greater functionality to use with their upcoming set of twins. The result is a monitor that not only provides live video and audio, but tracks vital signs, records developmental milestones and even lets distant family members tap into the feed to be closer to baby! They call it Onni, their 4th child!
