The iWatch Effect

The iWatch Effect

What is the iWatch all about? It’s a little about being a wearable device, time teller, sci-fi and magic. Perhaps we are getting ahead of ourselves here, but since we are into the home stretch and the iPhone 6 will be soon announced. It’s only fitting that we feature this beauty envisioned by Benjamin Schuster.

Choking Over A Drain

Choking Over A Drain

We are all guilty of choking the kitchen sink with food debris and not matter how diligent we get, the damn thing ends up clogging the sink. A plumber’s delight and our nightmare, the only thing we can do is to adopt preventive measures. We can use innovations like the Water Pass – a double drain cap that allows you to keep the sink unclogged and drains the water at the same time. Do want!

Paper Light

Paper Light

With the hallmarks of an industrious project, the Muchen Lamp is a creative DIY Lamp that uses wood and cardboard. Both the materials are recyclable and don’t cost an arm and a leg. Keeping this in mind, I think I have suitable place for it on my desk … and I love the red cord, which breaks the monotony of the brown color.

Walking With An Independent Streak

The sensors recognize objects that are distant and report it to the user via its interface.

Dot Matrix Microwave for Dummies

Dot Matrix Microwave for Dummies

I know I’m not the only one who has NO CLUE how to use my microwave’s gazillion features. For us, there’s the Dot Matrix Microwave. — This innovative design takes the guesswork out of heating various foods by utilizing a single knob that toggles between the only the most common settings including defrost, liquids and 3 straightforward power settings. The design could have used a 2 million pixel LCD fancy shmancy screen, but nothing really emphasizes its simplicity like a beautifully basic dot matrix display!

Composed of reclaimed materials, including upcycled tires, each unit is as efficient to produce as it is eco-friendly.

Flat Spoon Means Super Functionality

Flat Spoon Means Super Functionality

The Polygons Measuring Spoon is an innovative and surprising redesign of the kitchen tool that eliminates the need for multiple measuring units, thereby saving space and time. The design applies intentional geometric cuts to a single sheet of plastic that allow the design to be pinched at different sections to create varying bowl sizes. When you’re finished, it snaps back to flat making it easy to wipe, clean and store. Watch it in action —>

The Capping Routine

The Capping Routine

It is frustrating to misplace the cap of a pen; kinda makes it look handicapped. A sidestep in design is to have a pen with no cap. Taking the old concept a bit further, we have the A-Pen – a pen with an integrated cap. Very simple and very clever!

Saved By the Net

Saved By the Net

Net Rescue Boat is a lifeboat dredge with a net. The purpose of this re-design stems from the difficulties rescuers face while on missions using a regular lifeboat. The net area makes it easier to bring people to safety and commence first aid. Yep, in playtime we can also think of many party uses for the net area … but that’s just a wicked side of us!
