Two Flashlights In One, And Some Florescent Magic

Two Flashlights In One, And Some Florescent Magic

The Emergency Flashlight is meant for a grab-me-on-the-way-out emergency situation. What it features is a single flashlight tube that splits up into two and is connected via s florescent rope. The two split-up tubes work as powerful independent flashlights and the rope in between the two is used as a safety guide. The user scenario would be something like this; two responsible adults hold on to the two lights and the elderly and children hang on to the luminescent rope.

Zipped Tight Seat

Zipped Tight Seat

This seat is the one you buy if you want everyone to say – “where did you get such a chair, such a completely unique and wild chair?” You want people to say that, right? You’re that kind of wacky fellow or lady, correct? Lemme tell you all about this chair “Zipfred.” It’s made of cable ties, 6 wooden elements, and 20 layers of cardboard. The cable ties hold the entire chair together solid, the entire structure in its final form looking like you bought it directly out of a modern art museum fancy shop.

Earcushions!

Earcushions!

Earos provides a convenient padding to your ear when you use it with your mobile phone. It fastens to any phone and even doubles up as display stand, when used in reverse position. A convenient fastener hooks it up to most phone models. It rotates on two axes, so that the ear pad can be repositioned in a jiffy, allowing access to the display. Its looks to be a comfortable addition to the phone, especially if you are the sorts to talk on it for long. Ears really tend to heat up fast, and Earos can be a good barrier!

It’s All About The Double-faced Pan!

It’s All About The Double-faced Pan!

Flip your pancakes or stir fry some veggies, shallow fry or cook some pasts, the versatile 2 in 2 L Pan allows you to do some much more! Laying it flat on its wide base makes it function like a normal pan, but using the indented narrow side allows you to whip up gourmet delights that require some frying. Totally love its space-saving attitude, and I’m already saving a hook for it in my kitchen!

Heat Me

Heat Me

The ORA is an interesting radiator heat concept meant to be portable enough to move around, but for the ultimate in portability, a removable sleeve can provide ample heat around your neck when needed. The radiator itself has a simple clock-timer feature and the whole package looks quite fetching no?

HTC Diamond 3 (but not made of them)

HTC Diamond 3 (but not made of them)

Through two iterations of the Diamond series, and there hasn’t been a nary of “diamond-esque” qualities to the lineup. The unique carved back of the original Diamond was the closest we ever got, so designer Sylvain Gerber envisaged a design worthy of the gem’s brilliance; the Diamond 3. Android equipped with the latest tech hardware but the “shine” is really in the case. You could blind someone with this bling.

Disposing The Dead Fly

Disposing The Dead Fly

So you swatted the fly, now how are you going to dispose its body? Pick it up with a tissue paper you say! Nay! Dare you waste the paper! I’ll give you a better tool, the swatter itself! The weapon itself becomes the disposer; how cool ‘n creepy. A niche in the swatter lets you pick the dead fly with precision and dispose it in the bin. Yes! Swatter; awesome!

Tea Coffin Revisited With More Friends

Tea Coffin Revisited With More Friends

Reminding me about the Tea Coffin is this project called the Te a me. However, designer Vera’s efforts are more comprehensive and take into account a kettle and jug system as well. For the cup and saucer, of course the burial ground for the teabag is there and so is a clever nip in the cup, to desist your bag from sinking into the tea. The complementing water jug can be placed directly on the stove for brewing the cuppa, or can be used as a kettle. The thermo magnetic saucer lets you serve piping hot water directly at the table.

Alarm Compass For Aiding Evacuation

Alarm Compass For Aiding Evacuation

Last Sunday I was at this theatre watching a movie and all of a sudden the lights went out. Pitch dark, even the damn emergency exit sign on the doors quit working. Although it wasn’t an emergency situation, just a normal power trip, I dread to imagine what would have happened if we really needed to evacuate. Scenes like this sound horrifying, but you do need a reliable system to sound out directions or visually guide you through. The Compass Alert System is one such aid that plays an audio track and indicates the direction you should be heading towards.

Talking With A Palm

Talking With A Palm

The future iPhone is here or at least in conceptual form. Given that size, design and features need to be drastically innovated, the NOT A Phone – Next Generation iPhone, delves into the projection arena. So basically you strap the next-gen iPhone to your wrist and project the display to your palm. You can figure out rest of the drill from the images, so my question to you today is….are we in for projection screens for phones? Is that the future of phone display, have a basic small screen and project the rest of it?

A Double Squeeze

A Double Squeeze

The Citrange is a hand squeezer for the citrus fruits in your life. The unique funnel design makes it feel that the juice is going to spill out of the glass; but it does not. The double-grooves design allows you to squeeze the wide (like an orange) to the narrow (like a lime) fruit from either ends of the juicer. I like the fact that a strainer is built-in and the overall procedure cuts back one whole step in juice-squeezing. Ok, I love it!

Non-drip Umbrella

Non-drip Umbrella

The purpose of the Mohock Smart Umbrella is to get rid of disposable bags for carrying wet umbrellas and making sure you don’t lose them. The first achieved with a handle redesign, where it’s thick and wide enough to take in the dripping water by placing the umbrella upright. And to ensure that you don’t forget it anywhere, a unique top attachment has been crafted, so that you can hang it off a table. Love the attractive colors that it comes in, plus the three-fold and two-fold options. One question Mr. Designer….when can I buy one?
