The Ball Boy

The Ball Boy

To make things more efficient around the Tennis Court, we have here the Tennis Ball Boy, an automated ball collector. The good news is that it efficiently picks up the tennis balls from the court and the bad news is that you won’t be able to apply for the Ball Boy position at the Wimbledon anymore!

Always Take The Weather With You

Always Take The Weather With You

Love the song and the deep meaning of taking the weather with you, albeit only if it’s sunshine and cheery! The thing with weather predictions in most countries is that it’s the most unreliable news relayed on the TV Channels. For example, in my hometown if the station predicts a sunny day, be assured it’s going to rain heavy! To remove this ambiguity about the weather, we have here the StormTag – your personalized weather station.

Mind Your Step

Mind Your Step

LOOK OUT is a pavement brick concept where the sides of the brick are coated with a naturally illuminating material. The purpose behind this is to make a pedestrian aware of a loose brick and prevent a fall. It happens quite often that the pavement bricks become unleveled and jut out; a simple shiny coat of reflecting Phosphorescent paint is all that it takes to solve the problem.

The External Green House

The External Green House

The Garden Pod has one big thing working in its favor – it utilizes the external walls of a dwelling rather than clamoring for space indoors. This modular green house is designed so that it can be fitted onto exteriors of a building and can take advantage of the natural energy sources. A handy app allows you to control the setting of the pod and also relays essential information such as which vegetable is ripe enough and how much compost is available.

An Intelligent Road Marking System

An Intelligent Road Marking System

Razmetkus is a design concept for an intelligent road marking system. It features an interactive road pavement along with sensors that track the position of all road users. If required, Razmetkus can display information for each driver individually, updating them about the traffic situation and alerting them about impending hazards. Perhaps this concept will trigger the highway authorities to better integrate technology with roadway safety and information systems. Looking forward to a tech-savvy drive in the future!

Campers know that to find the right tent it’s gotta be sturdy, reliable, lightweight, highly durable, thoughtfully shaped for strength and should feel just right. Well, look no further because here are not 1… not 2… but 3! They’re based on a specific molecular structure called “diamond grid’ made of air beams built with a resistant double-layer construction and extra airtight thermoplastic urethane bladder that keeps air inside for a long time. Introducing, The Cave, The Wedge and Mavericks. My fave: the Cave! Check em’ out!

The 45-degree Effect

The 45-degree Effect

The Outdoor Flashlight has two main selling points to the concept. One – it has a 45-degree angle to it and two – it has twice the solar charging panels to it. The angle is to ensure proper illumination and ability to guide the light in the correct direction. The solar panels give it the extra edge in eco-charging. Since it is the outdoor light, you will have enough exposure to the sun!

Funky Outdoor Fireplace

Funky Outdoor Fireplace

This wild looking concept is at once a sculptural centerpiece and functional fireplace for your outdoor area. The modern wood-burning design differs from other fire pits in that it encourages people to lean on and touch its surfaces to warm their body while observing its internal spiral flame created by an air flow rotation system. The copper strips that fan outward are also warmed to provide heat to the user’s feet.

Playful Pixel Furniture

Playful Pixel Furniture

The Tarta series of outdoor furniture is a clever combination of industrial design, art and technology that offers a contemporary look at transforming the virtual world into the real world! Inspiration for the chair and table was found in geometry consisting of multiple modules that remind of the diamond-shaped pixels of modern displays. These hexagons are matched to each and bent to become three dimensional, creating a texture by variable thickness that moves in space to create an enveloping seat and table top.
