Time and Memories

Time and Memories

Wonjune Song sent us his version of how time flows like a river and memories are all that are left behind. Nice esoteric thoughts, but I dig the Memory Time Watch more for its casual looks, and the subtle way the inner mechanics are revealed. Let’s just go with the memory flow!

We’ve given you [some] frajabulous [lists] of [items] we’ve got just bursting with potential in our YD Store, things you could, oh, I dunno, buy for a loved one or someone similar, but now here’s the magic maker.

Each Hour By A Cyclist

Each Hour By A Cyclist

To pay homage to cyclist Graeme Obree’s amazing career, Mr. Jones Watches just released “The Hour” watch. Each hour of the day is revealed by a cutout with words that have particular meaning to Mr. Obree. For example, the 12 o’clock position reveals the numbers 52.713 which is the distance Obree covered to win the world cycling championship in 1995. Inspired by Obree’s flare for the unconventional, the watch uses design cues normally reserved for children’s watches. It’s playful, allows for intricate illustrations, yet very professional and functional.

Architectural Finger Bands

Architectural Finger Bands

This is a bit of jewelry from the school of thought that revolves away from the stacked minds inside the stuck in the mud world or normalcy. That’s right! These are jewelers who like to create objects of majesty outside the norm, inside the realm of oddity and excellence. These rings go by the name Mirador, each of them modeled after the geometry found in the city of Barcelona. Several different versions for your pleasure.

Convertible Shoes

Convertible Shoes

So you’ve got a pair of shoes for the sun, right? Do you have a pair of shoes for when it’s raining so much you’ve got to slosh through the puddles? Oh you do? Well how about a pair of shoes that are BOTH of those things upon a quick adjustment? A cool designer by the name of REN Fangying has a design like that. It’s called “Sunny and Rain” and it works both as a pair or regular shoes AND as a pair of overshoes, whichever you need!

For Coats, Not Zapping!

For Coats, Not Zapping!

Our ol’ pal Michael Sholk is back, this time with something so simple, something so neat you wish you’d thought of it, that we’ll go ahead and call it Pop Art. That’s what Pop Art is, right? Something amazing, simple enough you could have done it yourself, but woops, you didn’t, so the person who made it gets all the genius points? That’s right! Michael Sholk’s a smart fellow. Once he put 2 and 2 together on this power-lines to coat-hanger idea, he got to hackin away at it, and poof! Here it is!

Sunlight VS Pixel Power

Sunlight VS Pixel Power

Sunglasses, the coolest thing since sliced bread, are about to get a wild revamp. Designer Chris Mullin presents “Electronic Sunglasses,” a concept for blocking the sun not all at once, but in a targeted manner, creating not just a blocked vision, but a modified one. These glasses have what Mullin calls a “glare shield” that reacts to and follows bright light sources inside the glasses area, blocking it to a degree that will potentially change the way you see the world, letting you see straight forward when otherwise the sun would force you to blink.

Sassy Hanger Bag

Sassy Hanger Bag

Look at that! It’s a clever bag for carrying home all your newly purchase clothing you got this excellent shopping season. It’s an upside-down hanger, it looks nice, it’s got some great color to it. But what’s this? Is this… yes! It’s detachable, and I can use it to hang my clothing up! What a good little bag you’ve been. I will not recycle you. Have fun, use your products always! Add this to your file of “best packages basically ever.”

Nice Coat... Nice Purse!

Nice Coat… Nice Purse!

Wait for it… it’s a coat! Wait for it… it’s a sack! There’s almost nothing I like better than a good transformer when it comes to industrial design. You know I love it when one item adds something simple and gains a whole new level of usefulness. It’s a whole new world when two items combine into one – case in point: “Wear Me Bag” by Rotem Lewinsohn, a lovely fashion accessory that can convert into a carrier.

In No Way Wet

In No Way Wet

This project goes by the name °ßWet ? No Way.°® – or “Wet? No way.” and it’s designed by Huang Tai-Shun. What this project consists of is a fold down (and up) package that you use once you’ve been out in a rainstorm with your fold-down umbrella and now have to enter the office or any other place where you’re probably not going to have the opportunity to set the umbrella out to dry it off. What does this package do? First of all, it’s tiny, then it folds out to be a tube the size of your folded-up umbrella. Place your wet umbrella inside, snap on the cover, and wowie!

Chubbify Your iPhone 4

Chubbify Your iPhone 4

I just find this iPhone 4 case by Arkwhat hilarious. While Apple spends millions on R&D to make their phone as thin as possible, a soft goods manufacturer puts out a case to make it as fat as possible. The Arkhippo I – Love it! It’s made of dense foam in a myriad of colors – super lightweight and shaped like an old school brick. Yes, I’m sure those of you old enough to remember the beginnings of cellular technology will remember how FAT phones were.
