Rethinking the Ruler

Rethinking the Ruler

Duplo might be a simplistic twist on the ruler but its basic redesign gives it much greater functionality! A sliding component makes it easy to draw predetermined line lengths in a flash. Just slide it to the desired position and go! It also makes it quick and easy to identify and save the length of measured objects without having to peer closely or line up. Just snap it on and slide it closed for perfect measurements each time!

A Pen with Perception

A Pen with Perception

This clever gadget’s function is almost unrecognizable… and that’s precisely its appeal. It’s a pen, but you won’t find any push-buttons or even hear a click! It features a touch sensitive surface that automatically triggers the nib to extend when you’re holding it. Set it down and it will retract to keep the nib fresh and out of harms way. Sleek and chic, it’s the finishing touch to any ultramodern office!

Be tangle-free until we’re cable-free!

Until we go completely wireless, earphone cords and mobile phone charging cables are must haves… which means tangles and knots aren’t going anywhere soon either. The Pop-up Cord Wrap aims to resolve the problem of cable management so they stay organized and tangle-free for easy access. The design contains 3 compartments for different sized cables. Made entirely of rubber, it pops up so cables can be coiled and pushes back to store them neatly. Whichever layer you need, just pop it out!

Snaptastic!

Snaptastic!

Can you see what’s missing from this modern clothespin? No metal spring! It’s called the Snapper and its genius lies in the POM nylon-related material and its unique die cast assembly method. Unlike primitive clothespins with two pins and a metal spring, the Snapper’s tensile rebound structure is created during the moulding process. This means manufacturing is completely automated with no need for human assembly!
