Minimalist Juicer

Minimalist Juicer

Nae is an interesting take on what designer Thibaut Rouganne calls a minimalist juicer. Personally I can envisage a far more stripped looking tool for something as simple as juicing but I do like how the lines of the design emphasize its function. The entire thing could be made from one sheet of plastic and it’s far more compact than the traditional juicer.

Fold-out Faucet

Fold-out Faucet

You can mistake the Flat-Fold to be a high-tech mirror thang in the bathroom or even a cabinet; but a faucet…most definitely not! The tap fits flush with the base of this discreet wall mount and comes with digital technology, plus a capacitive touch sensitive panel. So basically you can personalize the flow of the water and have it set to taste.

iPhone 5'ish Likes Your Fingerprints

iPhone 5′ish Likes Your Fingerprints

The iPhone5 concept by Zeki Ozek suggests using a fingerprint scanner instead of home button. You can assign your fingerprints for opening apps. Swipe your finger twice for background working apps and of course use your fingerprint for NFC payments and app store purchases. It looks similar to the iPhone 4 except squattier (sic) – cute chubby little thing. I’m 100% sure the real iPhone 5 won’t integrate any of these features but that brings up the question, why aren’t any of the major smartphone makers using biometric sensors?

Ear Cleaning With A Zing

Ear Cleaning With A Zing

We have professional ear cleaners here in India, who can be found on the streets, ready to clean out the earwax for a petty fee. Amazing as it sounds, the uppercrust doesn’t indulge in the practice, they still prefer the trust old ear bud! And this brings me to the Easy Buds; a redesign of the old with added features like adjustable buds and contour fitting! The bud consists of three major parts flexible rubber cover, adjustable stainless steel sheet and detachable synthetic rubber buds. Apparently this design is more comfortable to use and is more effective in collecting the wax.

Half-sized Sheets of Toilet Paper

Half-sized Sheets of Toilet Paper

I’m a big fan of paper towels perforated into smaller sizes because not every mess demands a giant square sheet but can toilet paper benefit from the same design? HowGee looks like every other roll of toilet paper but the sheets are perforated at half-sizes. Ultimately the designers hope by letting you choose how much to use, you’ll save paper. So let’s think about what we use toilet paper for because lets be frank, not every “mess” in the bathroom demands a full-size sheet right? RIGHT?

The Ultimate Sled

The Ultimate Sled

Steil is a conceptual sled with easy-carry straps designed for multiple sitting positions. Just check out the pictures after the jump. Doesn’t the guy look like he’s having fun? Oooh! I got a story. Gather ’round kids. When I was 9, I woke up to snow falling in Texas (yes it snows in Texas). I grabbed my sled and attempted to glide on a sheet of ice in the driveway. Needless to say, I ended up bruised and dented the family car. From then on I decided snow was no longer my friend and blamed my imagery friend “Matt” for the fiasco.

Scanning Watch

Scanning Watch

Inspired by scanning devices for scanning targets in sci-fi movies, the Sonar Watch has three themes – blue for sonar, green for radar, and red for a scanner interface. The time is shown as three targets which are lit up. By pressing a button, a radar/sonar/scanner animation will play. The dots represent the hour, minutes and seconds. Cool, novel design. Definitely something I could see Tokyoflash selling.

Helmet with Wristband Indicators... No You Cool

Helmet with Wristband Indicators… No You Cool

The Aura Commuter Cycle Helmet has an incorporated rear light and detachable wristband indicators. The indicators are automatically activated when the cyclist raises their arm to signal. The indicators attach to the helmet when not in use. The helmet was design to be appropriately styled to fit the urban environment, offering an alternative to race derived helmet designs.

Braille iPad

Braille iPad

The Omnifer is an innovative cover for the iPad that transforms it’s flat surface into Braille, reflecting the contents of the page you are surfing. Essentially the idea is to make the iPad accessible to the sight impaired. If supporting technology for this does come around, then I’m sure it will be quite a revolutionary concept to be commercialized. Nevertheless, when not in the Braille mode, the jacket acts as a protective gear for the iPad. Lovely!

Pet Stool, No I'm Serious

Pet Stool, No I’m Serious

Project “Pet Stool”, just a little something from Eyal Hirsh to bring a bit more joy and playfulness to our drab and stooless lives. The stool is made out of oak wood, solid yet a warm material. (HA!) The upholstered leg penetrates the seat  and just beckons to be played with. Inside that leg is a solid leg that keeps the stool stable. It’s humorous and I think quite comfortable to sit in. Not all furniture has to look like it came straight out of Dwell Design and no, that wasn’t a jab at Dwell. We love Dwell.
