Making A Smart Call

Making A Smart Call

The Smart Call is a … you guessed it … SmartWatch Concept, aimed at helping the speech and hearing impaired folks to lead a technologically-smarter life. The watch is designed to alert the wearer of incoming calls and pair with a Bluetooth and GPS enabled mobile phone and work in sync. The device can be used between two impaired users or between one impaired and one non-impaired user, for easy communication. An interesting concept

Some yummy looking furniture!

Some yummy looking furniture!

The latest delicious design from Claesson Koivisto Rune Architects, the Wafer collection of home furnishings combines light and dark colored walnut and maple in bold stripes, forming a pattern familiar to the confectionary wafers you couldn’t stop eating as a kid! While technically challenging to combine two types of wood, the collection does so seamlessly with curves that enhance this effect. Hit the jump to see the other mouthwatering pieces!

Pint-sized Firetruck with a Punch

Pint-sized Firetruck with a Punch

Designed specifically for India’s narrow, uneven roads, this emergency vehicle concept packs a powerfull firefighting punch in a smaller package. However diminutive, it’s capable of carrying over 1000 gallons of water, 140 gallons of firefighting foam, and nearly 800 pounds of Alex dry powder. Additional features include GPS, touch screen controls and organized tool stations that optimize space. All this and there’s room to spare for the standard 6-member crew!

This Smartwatch for Fit Kids!

Fitness education is most effective when introduced at a young age… but unless it’s presented in an engaging way, kids’ sponge-like brains won’t hold on to it! The Miiya smartwatch does just that! It’s the fitness-focused smartwatch that turns being health and exercise-concious into a game. The Miiya avatar responds to physical activity, growing and evolving in a never-ending adventure!

The Supermoto is a custom-created combination of off-road motorcycle and road-racing wheels/tires, known as ‘supermotard’ bike. Quite sporty is their approach; the bikes ride super easy at lower speed maneuvers in comparison to other sporty bikes.

Apple lightMac iMac

Apple lightMac iMac

The next version of the Apple iMac is a versatile screen that transforms from the size of an iMac to the MacBook to the iPad. Essentially, a device that moves from different forms to look and feel as sexy and innovative as an Apple product should be whilst being functional. Take a look at the detailed images that elucidate this concept … supersexy!

The Awesomeness of a Quadcopter

The Awesomeness of a Quadcopter

The innovative FLEYE is a Quadcopter that brings home stunning images from the locales it flies over. Combined with the app, it’s essentially a service that allows you to experience places that may be distant on paper but accessible via the app. Explore in-depth travel destinations and get reviews from other visitors before actually visiting a place. I think its quite apt for our generation where we get so little leisure time and would like to make the most of our vacations.

The New Needle

The New Needle

For those of my friends who like to do needlepoint, I have a great design here; one that will remove all frustrations when it comes to dropped needles. The 20° Needle is a great concept – it features a 20° bend on the eye and this helps you pick it up, should it ever fall down. The bend is slight enough for you to sew easily without a hitch.

The Easy e-Bike

The Easy e-Bike

Electric bikes currently on the market are largely U-G-L-Y. This e-bike by Kasper Jensen, however, proves that power-assisted doesn’t have to mean poor aesthetic. Its form takes inspiration from aggressive sports car styling and features a robust, muscular, monocoque frame that’s enhanced by minimally visible hardware. An integrated touchscreen mounted just before the handlebars provides users with battery life, time and GPS location information.

Quick and Painless Airport Security

Quick and Painless Airport Security

The Accordia bag aims to ease stress during the air travel check-in process by streamlining the security screening. Provided to passengers by the airport itself, the bag unfolds into compartments that are each dedicated to specific types of items like electronics, food, clothing, and so on. Security personnel are also trained to examine the bags in a more efficient way so you can get on your way!

Mother Nature's Bertoia

Mother Nature’s Bertoia

The latest from Ol’ha Shevchenko’s imaginative collection of nature and bio-inspired line of home furnishings, the Maple Leaf Chair mimics the form of the iconic leaf of the same name. Molded from recyclable polypropylene with a glossy finish, the leaf secures the seated user, wrapping them comfortably in its blades.

The Toaster Just Got Smarter

The Toaster Just Got Smarter

This functional twist on the toaster maintains the same minimalism as the classic upright toaster, but has some new and improved features! The first is a digital timer screen so you can gauge exactly how long your toast has left. This also means you’ll know exactly the right time and heat seating so you get it right each time. The second is a nesting tong built in to the side. It saves fingers from burning and when it’s removed it triggers the device to turn off so you never have to worry about accidentally leaving it on!

A Case of the Doodles

A Case of the Doodles

The Lumdoo Duo case for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus artfully plays on contrasts- from the choice of materials to the use of color. The color scheme combines a monochromatic black or white frame with a fluorescent highlight color panel that doubles as a basic tablet! You can write or draw on it using any source of light. Leave yourself temporary reminders or just doodle for fun! Get it here.
