Future Of Washing

Future Of Washing

A trip down the aisle of washing machines in an appliance store tells you that not much innovation has come about in the design language of these machines. Innova hopes to rectify this with its futuristic design language and innovative techniques. This washer-dryer concept uses only steam for cleaning, and consumes much less water compared to the current crop. Thanks to its ergonomic design, the drum of the machine is perched at an angle and gives a better view inside.

The Men’s Only Toothbrush

The Men’s Only Toothbrush

The goal for designing the Braun Concept Electric Toothbrush was to clearly define and create a toothbrush that is targeted at men. Unisex designs in toothbrushes often tend to appeal to only one gender, so the task at hand was to see if a design could be created that identifies only with one gender. A look at this concept and it is clear that it’s a sexy men’s-only electric toothbrush! Mission accomplished!

For The Love Of Tea

For The Love Of Tea

Man and his perfect cuppa tea are often inseparable. The innate art of brewing tea and with a specific blend is almost like a traditional ritual in some cultures. Keeping with this essence we have here the O’cha, a mini tea-infuser that gives you an opportunity to make their tea on the go. According to Somi, the driving factor for the design and the size was to make the infuser fit comfortably into a standard bottle. Thus making it easily adaptable and portable.

Fiery Feast

Fiery Feast

The Volcano is a barbecue grill that is modeled on the unpredictable volcanic eruptions seen in mountains. The idea stemmed from the love of watching dancing flames on barbecues as they slowly cooked and grilled assorted food items and transformed them to yummy delicacies. Although a cumbersome process, people still go through the pains of setting up the grill and indulging in elaborate fares, hopefully the Volcano will make life easier for them all.

Hands-Free Hairdryer

Hands-Free Hairdryer

The modern woman’s life is a tough one- raising kids, working, taking care of the house… all while staying attractive and beautiful, of course! The Yuca hairdryer is here to help make that part a little easier. The design is ergonomically adapted to be held in the variety of positions required for getting your hairdo just right. Better yet, it can rest flat on any surface, leaving your hands free to comb, brush your teeth, or even use your cellphone. The result is mind-blowing freedom!

Hairy Situation

Hairy Situation

Hairfall is a common problem across all generations and gender. It is kinda highlighted when we brush our hair or use a hair dryer. Unruly strands breakaway and gather in an embarrisong pile on the floor, and many a times we don’t find the time to clean the mess. With the Vacuum Dryer one can easily remedy the situation. One end of the nozzle works as a hair dryer and the other as a handy vacuum cleaner. Awesome!

Intelligent Washing

Intelligent Washing

Smart Chime is an intelligent washing machine that RF scans the clothing tags to see if the wash cycle is safe for them. Essentially it makes sure you don’t end up washing delicates with cottons or color bleeding fabrics with the pastels or whites. It’s intelligent enough to intuitively indicate how much more time is left before the cycle is up. Nice concept and with certain refinements I am sure it will take clothes washing to the next level.

iFresh Scan

The I Fresh is a food scanner equipped with a camera that captures the barcode on the food packaging, just before you store it in the fridge or cupboard. It hooks up to the fridge like a fridge magnet and can store data like the date of purchase. The idea behind the device is to make sure you consume fresh food and don’t eat the spoilt.

The Dry Wave

The Dry Wave

The Wave Dry is an innovative concept that looks at drying clothes faster and in a cost-effective way. It basically is this solar device that can be charged via the windows of the house. The soaked up solar goodness is used to power the drying UV lights and hot air. Although it looks to be a bit bulky for now, I think a couple of refinements down the line, this idea can do some great good!

A camping stove is essential cooking equipment; something you can’t leave behind, but almost always the most inconvenient thing to carry!
