Fridge of the Future

Fridge of the Future

Chances are, your upright refrigerator has more than a few items long overdue to be theown out. It’s in part due to our increasingly hectic schedules, but also because the design isn’t conducive to food organization and management. Future Connect refrigeration ditches the large fridge/freezer combo for a modular system of refrigerating units that compartmentalize meals in trays that can also be used for cooking. Each unit also informs the user when items are approaching expiration. Check the vid for more!

Robotic Clean

Robotic Clean

The one place I’d like to see robots do their thing is in the domestic space. The Mab is a concept in this direction and looks at giving home space a robotic clean look. Essentially it is an automated cleaning system consisting of hundreds of flying mini-robots which will clean all surfaces. Mab scans and custom cleans an area according to its requirements.

Sweet Noise

Can noise ever be sweet? Yes, only if it’s routed through the Music Yue – noise converter device. The idea behind this project is to transform everyday noise pollution to something more soothing. Imagine living near the railway tracks or on a busy street and having to live with those track noises and blaring horns! The Music Yue simply detects a recurring rhythm and transforms it into a pleasing tune. Imginative and something we urbanites could do with!

How Toxic Are You?

How Toxic Are You?

With the current GMO outcry, it is important that we ensure that what we are eating is nutritious and not the opposite. Nurtima is a kitchen scale that calculates the nutritional values, possible toxins and freshness of your food and ingredients. The scale combines piezoelectricity with smart and flexible technologies, and is charged by bending repeatedly. This action creates enough electric charge for the scale to operate for the duration required.

Drinkable Sea Water

Drinkable Sea Water

Before you scream ‘absurd’, let me tell you that I am talking about Puri – a sea water desalinating bottle. There are several ways to remove saline from sea water, for example evaporation, vapor-pressure, and ion-exchange membrane method but all of them are not practical for use on a life raft or rescue boat and require big equipments. The Puri on the other hand is a slim portable bottle that works with a pumping action. Take a look at its video below.

No More Pesticide Food

No More Pesticide Food

ECO Washing Balls are sensor driven balls that move in the bowl of water, ridding your fruits and vegetables from harmful pesticides. I am all in support of this kind of innovation; just two days ago I read a news report about some school children that succumbed to pesticide-laced food. Simple dishwashing and running water are not enough, either we stop using these harmful chemicals of get the industry to come out with such innovations. What do you say?
