Smooth Sophisticated Smoking

When I think of pipe smoking, I imagine an older generation of men sitting around reading newspapers or conversing about times gone by. Yet with this new and sleek pipe design by Hakan Bogazpinar, I can see a much more hip, younger crowd partaking in its’ pleasures. Eolos is our modern day pipe. With a smooth, almost aerodynamic design, it looks the Ferrari for pipe smokers.

Hitch a Free Ride

Hitch a Free Ride

A belt with three GIANT suction cups for you to hitch onto anything. That’s exactly what the Hitch concept is by designer Robert Nightingale. He believes in a free world where opportunistic travelers just latch themselves onto moving vehicles. The triple load vacuum suction cups are strong enough to keep you from flying off. As the designer puts it. . .

Seating for Every Shape Bum

Seating for Every Shape Bum

Remember the story about Goldilocks and the 3 bears? While the bears were out, she helped her way into their house trying everything until she found the perfect fit. In hindsight she was on to something. We all want products designed custom just for us. The Wave Seat eludes to this old axiom and makes it possible thru the magic of nanotubes.

Take On the Urban with Beema

Take On the Urban with Beema

Beema is a inner city trick bike by Andreas Martin that allows you to take on any obstacle that the urban area throws up; chairs, banks, rails or just the street. It fills the gap between FMX, scooter and BMX. Besides the the stunt riding it gives you the possibility to overcome distance inside a city by having two kinds of driving modes, the stunt-riding mode of course, and then the cruise mode that seats you in a more relaxed position.

Trike for Disabled Tikes

Trike for Disabled Tikes

Conceived after visiting a children’s hospital in Jerusalem, designer Shabtai Hirshberg created the A2B trike so disabled kids could mount and ride by themselves. When a child mounts the trike, stepping on the pedal locks the wheels, enabling the child to literally walk right into a seated position. The chest support keeps the child stabilized, and the whole trike can be customized to each child’s needs.

Prepare Your Nachos, Footballs, and Beer Bellies for MANVAN!

Prepare Your Nachos, Footballs, and Beer Bellies for MANVAN!

When I think of a van, I think of something a family owns: a “Soccer Mom” van, or one of those “full of crap” vans that a hectic multi-child family owns. The “Man”, as the Manvan defines it, is not one who would put up with foolish children delivering or cross-country-to-grandmother’s-house treks with family, no! The Manvan tends to to football loving man, the man who wants to watch hugescreen television in an empty parking-lot man, the strange future man!

Nowadays living with a delicate footprint is important and thats trickled its way down to kid’s toys. Take for example the Bam Bam Baby trike.

A Futuristic Ferrari. Speed is a Given but Automated

A Futuristic Ferrari. Speed is a Given but Automated

Designer Iman Maghsoudi believes driving cars in the future will be akin to operating a PC while traveling 200 km/h. Humans lacks the concentration and dexterity required to handle such a task but the inevitably of hyper-computerized vehicles is a truth we can’t avoid. Monza is built for speed but smart enough to drive itself.

Vroom Vroom Beep Beep!

Vroom Vroom Beep Beep!

Who says I can’t play with my electronics! Move To The Radio shoves a radio inside a traditional wood block car toy. The volume is controlled by the wheels so if you want to turn it up, you gotta push the car along, purse your lips, and make the VROOM VROOM sound! Okay that last bit is optional but if you’re gonna play, go all the way.
