Backpack Body Fusion

Backpack Body Fusion

Ok, so if you turn it around it would sorta look like one of those pregnancy simulators… but it’s because of these natural curves that the Fusion Ultimate Black backpack is so darn comfortable! The ergonomic design follows the natural curvature of the body to make it flexible, comfortable, aerodynamic and easy to wear for longer periods of time. In full grain calf leather it’s also durable enough to take almost anywhere.

Sleek and portable, the radiator syncs in with your smartphone for complete control.

Moloform celebrates the launch of their premiere product line with this trio of pendants- the Zebra lamps. The minimalist design is characterized by true Scandinavian style with simple lines and angles formed from a single sheet of aluminum. The sheet is folded to form a polygonal piece where slivers of light are visible through each crease. With three variations in pure white, each is a perfect compliment to modern interiors.

Shop Shark

Shop Shark

Sharks, water, inhaling… I can’t think of a more opposite inspiration for this electric tool! But that’s precisely the cool-factor behind this handy shop blower! It biomimics the form of the basking shark’s strangely large mouth, inverting the functionality to push out rather than intake. Cleaning up shop has never been more creative!

The Carry Pill

The Carry Pill

Mainly intended for the silver generation, I love the simplicity of the Convenient Pill Box. It combines the convinence of carrying your daily meds with a PET water bottle by integrating as bottle cap. The shape is ergonomic and makes it easy to open the bottle and the “Date Setting” on the pill box prevents the users from taking the expired pills. Easy and awesome!

Staples Right!

Staples Right!

Innovative stationery has always fascinated me and the Right Angle Stapler is a winner in my eyes. We have managed to increase the width, size and capacity of the humble stapler but no one has ventured into its orientation. Stapled papers develop ugly dog-ears and the Right Angle Stapler prevents this. I have only two words for this concept – LOVE IT!

3D Shoes! Footloose!

3D Shoes! Footloose!

By pairing data acquisition, user behavior, and rapid prototyping, the designers at Pensar wish to create footwear conforming to our individual anatomy and using biomechanics as the foundation. The DNA concept leverages rapid manufacturing to create a shoe built to our foot contours. Pressure sensors and accelerometers fitted trainers are taken for a run and then based upon the data collected, the 3D printed shoe is created!

Mortal Time

Mortal Time

Time is a great reminder of the fact that there are some things unexplainable about this world we live in. For example faith, belief and hope, all come to us at a time when we need them the most. To signify the importance of god and faith, we have here the Crux Watch.

For lumberjacks who want to keep their limbs…

Accidents while sawing are generally the result of the user turning their body to achieve a certain angle while cutting trees horizontally. In this awkward position, the saw often slips from the user’s grasp, spinning from the torque before coming into contact with a leg or other extremity. To solve this problem, the Rotation Saw is fitted with a revolving handle so the user can adjust the angle at which they’re cutting without moving from the proper body position. Hit the vid to see it in action!

The Phone, Simplified

The Phone, Simplified

Gotta love the simplicity of this minimal desktop phone by Younghwan Kim! Designed for the OCD professional with a perfectly organized desk, the phone at first appears to be a black, glossy block accent. Un-nest it from the base, however, and it will reveal a minimal interface with basic number keys and an simple LED screen. Its functionality is as minimal as the stark aesthetic, and that’s its charm!

Living Light Bulbs

Living Light Bulbs

Already being used as a large-scale power source for housing heating/cooling & biodiesel creation, algae as a natural energy source is one of the more exciting alternatives of the near future. The AlgaeBulb is an exploration into the use of the organisms on a micro-scale in single LED lightbulb that harnesses the green-power of algae. Using a small air pump compressor, tank, and hydrophobic material, it creates just enough electricity to power the LED for limited durations. Hit the jump to see how it works!
