No Cold Coffee, Only HOT!

No Cold Coffee, Only HOT!

Regular YD-ers know about my coffee addiction and how I love my cuppa joe by my side. According to my survey there are two kinda tea/coffee drinkers, ones who love their brew piping hot (or a particular temperature) and ones who prefer tepid. The Nano Heated Mug caters to the former faction; those who love hot beverages at the ideal drinkable temperature.

Half the Bike, Twice the Fun

Half the Bike, Twice the Fun

Appropriately named the Halfbike, this new you-powered trike allows users to explore new horizons and have fun in an entirely new way! The design utilizes the core driving mechanism of a bicycle (wheel/crankset) and applies it to an upright user position that trains balance and reflexes. The standing position is closer to natural walking and users must use their entire body to control it. Unlike a regular bicycle, the Halfbike becomes an extension of the body that creates a smooth and intuitive ride. See it in action —>

The Mathematics in Polyhedrons and Pots

The Mathematics in Polyhedrons and Pots

It sounds a bit complicated, but the explanation is worth the effort – apparently there are only five regular polyhedrons in the world, and the dodecahedron is the most stable shape of them. Using this shape in an innovative form, we have the 12 Faces of Structure – Potholder; an interesting take on geometry.

Heel Appeal

Heel Appeal

With footwear like this, it’s obvious that you want to make a grand entrance. Not just visually, because with heels like these, I doubt you could quietly walk into a room! The UNX2 isn’t just a hulking piece of footwear. It’s designed to be a work of art that ensconces your feet. It has a unique design that, at certain viewing angles, gives the illusion of transparency. Coupled with the movement of feet while taking steps, the entire process of walking is celebrated in a stunning marriage between art and science.

Noteworthy Bits

Noteworthy Bits

At some point we all need to go back to the basics; in my case it will be writing in a notebook – the paper kind. And when I do that, I need gear that is inspiring. For some odd reason, I’m very picky about book I use and my pen. We’ll leave the pen story for another day, but for now let’s ‘focus’ (no pun intended) on the Camera Notebook – DSLR by AFTERAIN. Available at the CKIE Store, this book features an inspiring DSLR Camera, that helps you capture memories … literally!

What's a Skateboard with legs called?

What’s a Skateboard with legs called?

A Table! The joke may be bad, but the idea isn’t. Here’s a set of tables made out of skateboards. Designed with two perspectives, the tables come in a cabin-esque wooden and a contemporary steel selection. Somehow the transition from a sporty, movable object to a stationary piece of furniture comes very naturally to the skateboard’s form. Hashtag Awesome!

A Right Angled Mindset

A Right Angled Mindset

Old people don’t have it easy. Fashion doesn’t really consider that demographic, which means objects for old people are usually strictly functional, and don’t focus on aesthetics. STIK is a walking stick that’s not just functional but slick in its design too. Meant for scenarios that transcend just walking, the handle detail is designed to act as a support in a much broader sense. And with its unique extruded design, it doesn’t bend under pressure!

Maximising your MINI experience

Maximising your MINI experience

We’ve seen a lot of Virtual Reality (VR) of late. As much as it sounds fancy, it’s actually pretty straightforward. The real wonder is Augmented Reality (AR), which doesn’t just put a screen in front of your eyes. Augmented reality merges virtual elements with things you actually see in front of you. The end result is a series of holograms interacting with actual objects.
