The New Needle

The New Needle

For those of my friends who like to do needlepoint, I have a great design here; one that will remove all frustrations when it comes to dropped needles. The 20° Needle is a great concept – it features a 20° bend on the eye and this helps you pick it up, should it ever fall down. The bend is slight enough for you to sew easily without a hitch.

The Easy e-Bike

The Easy e-Bike

Electric bikes currently on the market are largely U-G-L-Y. This e-bike by Kasper Jensen, however, proves that power-assisted doesn’t have to mean poor aesthetic. Its form takes inspiration from aggressive sports car styling and features a robust, muscular, monocoque frame that’s enhanced by minimally visible hardware. An integrated touchscreen mounted just before the handlebars provides users with battery life, time and GPS location information.

Jet Powered Rescue

Jet Powered Rescue

When it comes to lifeguard rescues, seconds can mean the difference between life and death. With this in mind, the ResQ board was designed specifically to cut rescue time in torrential waters which generally take longer to tackle. The power-assisted device is driven by tandem electric motors via water-jet propulsion. Because it’s intended to be used near sunny areas, each is rechargeable on a solar docking station.
