Tumble Dry In Vacuum

Tumble Dry In Vacuum

DryMate is a clothes dryer that uses a new vacuum technology to dry clothes at lower temperature. As a result lesser energy is consumed, and heat-related damage to the clothes is avoided. The dryer scores another brownie point for being easily accessible from a standing position. To aid its stand further, a 9 degree tilt and a wide-mouth drum has been incorporated to the design. The rounded exterior gives a refreshing new form to the redundant cuboids that we see at homes.

Cement Your Love For Coffee

Cement Your Love For Coffee

Concrete, ideal for building homes and roads but is it good enuf for a coffee machine? Tough question to answer, but apparently we can take Shmuel Linski’s help on this coz he’s designed one. The rugged appeal and the delectable cracks in its form; Espresso Solo looks smoking hot in this cemented avatar! Shmuel has kept the project simple, the machine makes only espresso: short and long. A chamber for the beans and an outlet for water are all that it features. No fuss, just solid love for caffeine and irresistible forms!

The Heating Element

The Heating Element

At first glance you can easily mistake the Toolip for a hand blender, but surprise-surprise, it’s a hand-held heating rod! Yup, the sorts that can be used to make a cuppa coffee or re-heat baby’s food. A sleek panel on the handle sports the display, which tells you the stats like temperature and a red button at its base, releases the element so that you can wash it separately. Apparently the Toolip heats up faster than your regular electric kettle and hardly displaces any liquid during this process. It’s been designed to be used in any container that has a diameter of at least 3” and a filling height of at least 2”.

Replicators - How Real Today?

Replicators – How Real Today?

You’ve all seen Star Trek – at least pieces of it, here or there. You might even know what I’m referring to when I say this project we’re about to discuss is a real-world iteration of the original matter replicator. Truly an innovation that would change the world, that’s what this is. It’s called “The Joy Concept” and it’s designed by Ali (Jeff) Jafari. Replicate a stack of plates, just like that, then just as fast turn them back into dust.

Diploma In Cord Management

Diploma In Cord Management

Do you have a diploma in appliance management? It’s a new course for silly folks who wrap the electric cord around a hot toaster or kettle, burning out the plastic cover and putting themselves in danger. A candidate for this diploma is my mother, coz she’s always doing such silly things to her appliance, especially when she is stowing away the iron! Dumb, but true! Since course fees are high, I’m gonna ask appliance makers to adopt the E-Line Cord instead, sensible to wrap around a grooved wire, than a hot appliance.

Not Your Typical Dishwasher

Not Your Typical Dishwasher

Most dishwashers are the size of a washing machine, taking up as much space. What if you are a small family unit or a singleton? You don’t need such a huge size for 2 plates, a glass and some dishes? The Instant Dishwasher addresses these questions and comes off as this table-top version that integrates comfortably into your kitchen counter. A sliding top reveals a pull-up basket for your dishes, and more importantly it’s placed right next to the sink for easy plumbing and waste disposal.

Ultimate Modular Kitchen For 2050

Ultimate Modular Kitchen For 2050

Modular kitchens of the future seem to have the basics in place but little can be said about the supporting technology. For example the Elements Modular Kitchen has wall mounted appliances that range from fridge, air-conditioner, lighting and cooking modules. You can add or choose the modules that are best suited for your home. Each unit works independently but can be seamlessly work together via wireless smart networking. They draw power (wirelessly) thru ‘powermat’ technology applied to the wall, and this is supplemented with solar energy when required.

Food Storage Orchestra

Food Storage Orchestra

What better way to store your gobs and gobs of food than with a full band? This is the “Food Symphony” by Chow Pei Huan, Ho Wen Chi, and Chua Kai Ren, designing conceptually for Electrolux. In a way that, as far as I know, has never been done before, this big box can store food, and store it well. In individual storage units with adjustable temperature settings it stores, sensing the integrity of the food inside as it does so. This is the sort of thing you’ll wonder how you lived without.

A Quad of Energy Efficiency

A Quad of Energy Efficiency

There’s a clock, a fridge, a dishwasher, and an “app.” Together, like an action team out to get the bad guys, they’re going to regulate. Like the singer Warren G, they’re going to take command of your house, helping you know how each piece of it is running, helping you keep your energy consumption to a minimum. The only one that needs any extra equipment is the app, which, incase you’ve been living under a rock on the moon for the past few years, means it’s an application made specifically for a phone or other handheld “smart” device. You can see it all from there.
