Getting Wasted with Jeong Min Kim!

Getting Wasted with Jeong Min Kim!

It’s the “FOODOO!” In Korea, food waste cannot be tossed out with the rest of the garbage. The food must be collected in a separate bag, kept together until garbage day when it’s handed to the garbage people. During this time it gets YUCKY. And you know what happens when things yet YUCKY: things also get real SMELLY. What Jeong Min Kim has here is a device that both heats and dries the food waste into a solid block. Don’t put your puppy in there!

YiAhn - Bassinet That Turns Storage & Table by Min Kang

YiAhn – Bassinet That Turns Storage & Table by Min Kang

It is not only a normal bassinet; when the baby outgrows his bassinet, it can also be used for storage such as a toy bin and a mini bookshelf with drawers. As the baby becomes a child, it can convert into a set of a chair and a table for children. It can also be used as a bassinet again, if the family has a second baby.

Gadgets for the Peeper

Gadgets for the Peeper

Sometimes a candid shot is better than a staged one. The Peepster, a USB flash based camera with a timed shutter, began life as a CP+B product accessory for VW’s Routan and then became an all out spy cam under the Duh Technologies umbrella. With Peepster’s small form factor and squid like appendages, he could be anywhere – whether that’s behind a rearview mirror, a mug or in a box – waiting for the perfect shot. And like all things powerful, power can be corrupted — and with Peepster, it’s up to you to use it wisely (though it’s probably more fun not to).

Oranges And Air Coolers Have A Deep Relationship

Oranges And Air Coolers Have A Deep Relationship

Min Sung Kim feels there is a deep connection between an orange and an air cooler. He uses the simile of a fresh juicy one against an arid dry orange to describe the refreshing experience of his Airflow Air-Circulator Concept. The highlight of this circular cooler is the 300 degree rotation angle that circulates cool air into the room with greater efficiency. Basically, the warm air is sucked into the tube from the ends and cool air dispensed through the fills on the length of the body.

Enemies of Garden

Enemies of Garden

Friends at last! For what greater enemy does a vase have than a baseball? Maybe a cat. But that’s not important right now, because this is the “VaseBall!” In fact it has little to do with baseball at all, and a lot more to do with water and magnets. As you’re soon to see, the base of this vase and the top of the base of the vase each have magnets. When the water in the vase is too low, the lightness and the opposites in the poles make the ball lift!

Reptilian Roadster

Reptilian Roadster

Designer Zhi Min Lin’s prediction for the future of ground transportation is that cities will become so crowded & dense that new streets will eventually change from the current 2D flat roads into a 3D U shape to utilize limited space. The U-Wall Lizard is a vehicle adapted for driving on these new roads. Four independently powered wheels, expandable clawed tires & a unique suspension system allow it to grip terrain on both horizontal & highly angled surfaces all while balancing the body of the vehicle.

Hanging Hangers

Hanging Hangers

Gotta love this clever design by designer Jo Jae-Min. From afar the Dual Hanger looks like a stylish yet fairly standard coat rack, but take a closer look and you’ll notice that its removable “hooks” actually double as coat hangers!

Nice See Cups! (Fashionably Loud Headphones)

Nice See Cups! (Fashionably Loud Headphones)

Great Accessories in Music History: Mozart’s powdered wigs, Elton John’s sunglasses, The Ramones’ black leather jackets, Tommy Lee’s “third” drum stick, Kevin Federline. Now designers Min-guk Ji & Hong-joo Kim & In-oh Yoo & for Metatrend Institute have invented what could be the greatest music accessory since the groupie. The “Transparent OLED Headphones” (working title I’m assuming) are made from flexible OLED panels that allow the user to custom design a lighting show or patterns across your cranium.

Tactile Flash Cards for the Blind

Tactile Flash Cards for the Blind

Rhea Jeong, YoungSoo Hong, Sun Min Lee and Sae Hee Lee of Samsung Design Membership have it all figured out. Surely by now the schools for the blind have their lessons and so forth figured out by now, right? I mean, we’ve been teaching sight-impared folks for generations, right? There is ALWAYS room for improvement, everyone, and here is a big step!

I'd Hook My Bike Up to Nothing Minus

I’d Hook My Bike Up to Nothing Minus

Nothing less, that is, than “P+!” It’s the P+ bike system. Created by Young-Min Kim, Hyeon-Jeong Woo & Kyung-Goo Lee to promote healthy bike use in areas that don’t normally tend to bike users (especially in the way of bike protectors, information kiosks, and rest seats!) Spring is here, time to bike! P+ bike system for safe keeping!

Ain't Big Enough

Ain’t Big Enough

Those waste paper baskets seem like their big enough but they’re never big enough! It would be easier to get a bigger one but they’re small for a reason – they usually sit in tight spaces. The Growing Bin by Young-min Heo has an adjustable set of concentric rings that expand vertically to accommodate more trash. Eventually you’ll run out of rings too so quit being lazy and empty the trash bin already!

Bend the Beats to Stop the Flow of the Beats

Bend the Beats to Stop the Flow of the Beats

The best (and worst) thing about a garden hose is that kink that stops the flow. I love that kink. And so does the crew that’s whipped up the “Music Flow.” MP3s that spew forth from a faucet with matching earbuds and controls. Flow on!
