Personalized Gas Chamber

Personalized Gas Chamber

There were rumors floating once that Michael Jackson used to sleep in an oxygen chamber to de-tox himself. Alas, he is no more but the quest for pure, unpolluted air continues. Knowing his quirky personality, this CAIR Air Helmet would have been the ideal gift for him. It’s this helmet kinda device that sucks in the air from the filter at the back; purifies it and vents it directly to the face-end. A protective visor ensures that purified draft doesn’t escape without hitting you first.

Be Flexible With Diabetes

Gluos is a non-invasive blood sugar meter with a detachable sensor for more flexibility. As a diabetic you really want to measure  fast, easy and unobstrusively. The small device measures sugar levels using a display with an LED scale between a low result and a high result in different colors. Low sugar levels are shown in red. A normal level appears in white white and a high level goes orange. It stores the result and transfers it via bluetooth to a mobile phone and computer so your doctor has instant access.

Safe Wrap

Safe Wrap

Unlike the Beagle scarf-hoodie, SQUEASE is a jacket kinda haven for folks with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Fashionable and with-it, the jacket allows the wearer to apply deep pressure to their body, so that they can calm themselves and get over the sudden rush of anxiety. The integrated headphones reduce the sound level of high frequency noises like alarm bells or the sound of chairs scraping on a floor; soothing those with hypersensitive hearing.

Quality Control On Air

Quality Control On Air

Unless you work at Google or a similar office, ventilating your glass-chambered chubby-hole room can be a slightly tricky situation. This also could be the reason why I see a surge in designs that feature air quality indicators. LULA here is one such device that collects data and indicates the quality of air around your space. When hooked to the net, it deciphers the collected data to pinpoint the potential health side effects and suggests how to rectify the situation with behavioral modifications.

Put Your Insulin on My Hip

Put Your Insulin on My Hip

When I clip you clip we clip. The “Tolea” is an insulin pump for those folks with Type-1 diabetes. “Utilizing a flexible elastomer embedded with artificial setae, the nano-scale growths found on gecko’s feet which allow them to stick to virtually any surface.” What does that mean? It’s a little sticky-bump that sits on your side that you insert disposable insulin cartridges into to deliver the insulin into your body constantly and without pain. Ease? With diabetes?

Making Pee Drinkable

Making Pee Drinkable

You aren’t dreaming! And this isn’t Waterworld! You know what I’m talking about, Kevin Costner. This is a device for emergency areas / unclean-water areas for yes, you guessed it, turning urine into drinkable water. Human or animal. First, pee on the Activated Carbon in the device to make the pee lose it’s color and it’s flavor. Second, squeeze the container, third, drink!

A Hip Lab Assistant

A Hip Lab Assistant

Like all other centrifuges, laboratory centrifuges work by the sedimentation principle, where the centripetal acceleration is used to separate substances of greater and lesser density. To give you a scenario, for testing your blood, a sample of it is put into centrifuge tips and placed into a lab centrifuge to separate its components, which is then analyzed. Here we have the LABCENT jazzing up a lab’s tabletop coz even though the stream may sound too intense, even scientists can do with some hot looking gadgets in their labs!

Safe Drinking Water Even In Floods

Safe Drinking Water Even In Floods

The most certain thing in life is death; however we can never come to terms with this fact especially when lives are lost due to the forces of elements. Unpredictable yet certain, natural disasters like flood, hurricanes and tsunamis occur across the globe periodically and besides the loss due to destruction and devastation, the toll keeps rising due to non-availability of pure, clean drinking water. Rescue Bottle is the need of the hour as it is designed to be used under one such condition: Floods.

Pill Time! Pill Time!

Pill Time! Pill Time!

Uh oh which one of my pill alarms is it? Oh it is the one that says take the Yanko Pill, because I’m about to get hit in the face with another industrial design concept. This is the “3Medis,” and quite simply: it is an alarm which tells the user to take a pill. It’s easily programmable, made for elderly users, and has a built-in calendar and kind-hearted voice.

Not Just 3D Goggles

Not Just 3D Goggles

Do these look familiar to you? These goggles? These… 3D goggles? To my, they look like the “Awesome” 3D Environment games they used to have at the state fair. It was sooo 3D! Almost like real life! These are not a game. They are heavy, so do not touch them. This is REAL real life. These are a medical instrument for elderly people. The “ForeSeeHome” by designer Eitan Shariff of I2D: not to be having fun with.
