No More Slumpin’!

Modern man spends nearly 13 hours a day sitting. Aside from inactivity, it’s just plain bad for the back as you naturally begin to slump from back muscle exhaustion after sitting for long periods.The Backboard is a simple, adjustable lumbar support that helps improve posture and restore the natural curve of the spine when seated. It’s lightweight, flexible and yet incredibly supportive. Use it everywhere from the office to the living room for a better, happier back!

The Lightest Lights

The Lightest Lights

The Airy Lamp Series is so named for its barely-there materials and faint cut-out form that together make it no more than a subtle silhouette during the day and soft, diffused glow at night. The design kit utilizes delicate Japanese rice paper made durable and strong with lamination. A simple slot-in assembly of the five and six panel designs means each to be shipped flat-pack and the finely cut perforated pattern in each panel allows the user to extrude each panel into their desired form.

Scientific Bean Grinding

Scientific Bean Grinding

Coffee-geeks will love Pisona as it merges the versatility of a burr grinder with the compactness of a blade grinder, creating a revolutionary two-phase grinding process that enhances the aroma and flavor of the grounds. Rather than “shave” off parts of whole beans directly, the new auger system and innovative internal configuration first crack beans to 3mm and then transfer it to be ground to the user’s desired fineness. The closest thing to the preferred hand-grinding method, its slower automated process ensures beans aren’t heated in the grinding process.

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.
