Domino Clock

Domino Clock

Award-winning product development consultancy Carbon Design Group repurposes an icon with the introduction of the Domino Clock™. The Domino Clock™ takes a simple, iconic object and transforms it into a new way to tell time. The concept is simple. Three larger-than-life dominoes are equipped with articulating “dots” that flip back-and-forth between black and white to keep time. They hang on the wall or stand free, communicating wirelessly as they quietly mark the passing hours and minutes.

No Fruit Allowed

No Fruit Allowed

Welcome to a portable cooking experience like you’ve, perhaps maybe, never seen before. This is “Roll-Up”, an induction cooktop which separates induction coils and electronic circuits in order to make a very thin, very elegant solution for mobile cooking. Each coil is made small enough so that the heating part of the Roll-Up can be folded. Electronic circuits are placed in a “fancy looking hard-drive like case.” Plus – sensors!

Love Letter to Alex the Water Bottle

Love Letter to Alex the Water Bottle

Oh Alex, how you’ve become my favorite water bottle these past few months. I didn’t think much of you at first but then I found out former Oakley team manager Chris Hotell and pro snowboarder Gretchen Bleiler founded the company who made you and I become intrigued. You’re so special. You do a lot but there’s two things you do better than anyone else baby.

UPDATE: Holy Cup of Doubleness

UPDATE: Holy Cup of Doubleness

Now in mid-production! So be sure to Pre-order the Holey Jolly on CKIE, the offer is open for a very limited time.

Holy cheese anyone? This is a cup with holes in it. What’s the use? Well it keeps your hands cool when you pour in a hot drink, for one. But wait! Won’t the hot drink sploosh out the sides when poured in the top? No way! Know why? Because there’s two layers. The outer layer has holes, the inner layer contains the liquid. Sound good? Sounds super fancy! Sounds great!

Spice It Up With Samba!

Spice It Up With Samba!

Spice up the art of cooking with these delightful salt ‘n peppers shakers called the Samba!  Akin to playing the maracas, these shakers bring back the fun-element in cooking. Handcrafted in fine bone china, they come in three versions and two finishes: salt and pepper, salt and chilli or sugar and cocoa; in red or black silicone rubber seals finishes. My pick is the sugar and cocoa in black!

Field Pen of Solidity

Field Pen of Solidity

Uh oh! Looks like designer Sylvain Gerber is at it again! This time with something completely different than a speaker flake: this one is branded with the high quality field pen brand Rotring and called “FLEX MECH.” It’s a flexible topped pen where the flexible rod is housed in a guide tube which pushes the ink down with a spring, then brought out the mine at the bottom. What a weird pen situation!

High Efficiency Energy Saving Audio

High Efficiency Energy Saving Audio

It’s sort of like when you “shop more, you save more,” but you know what I mean. It’s not as much energy as you’d be using with your everyday stereo system. This is “Presence,” a high efficiency, energy saving bit of equipment joined together “by a visual brand.” It consists of a pair of loudspeakers, CD player, pre-amp and amplifier, vibration damper, and a 50 inch plasma TV. I’ll take one, please! Read more below.

Back to the Typewriter

Back to the Typewriter

Now here is a media center project unlike any I’ve ever seen before. Inspired by the iconic typewriter he has at his desk, (a Lettera 22,) thinking about the futuristic world we live in and will live in in the future, this designer decided to combine the aesthetics of the typewriter with the guts of a modern day media center. A media center, for those of you who’ve get to get on board, is a computer specially equipped to act as your television hookup.

It’s that time again. Time to guess what this item is without us telling you what it might be.

Bike Folded Sharp as a Razor

Bike Folded Sharp as a Razor

There have been many folding bicycle concepts posts in the many years Yanko Design has been in business, and here’s another one. One bike might fold to a small size, one might fold in a way that allows you to wheel it around. This one folds down max, max, max. Take a look at all the previous posts with folding bike concepts in them and compare.

Multiple Indubitable Perceptions

Multiple Indubitable Perceptions

Here’s a clock to add to your collection of oddest clocks of all time. This is the Parallel of Time clock and it’s a concept reflecting off the idea that although the speed of time is indubitable (the designer used this word, and I love it, so I will keep using it forever,) the perception everyone has of it is different. Time is perceived. Here is a strange clock.
