Sands Of Traffic Times!

Sands Of Traffic Times!

The Sand Glass is a new look at traffic lights. Surely people must be frustrated with the current design, which is why we have seen THREE DIFFERENT DESIGNS recently. Make this the fourth dimension using the sand-hour-glass as its model. LED lights trickle down to make an obvious statement, regarding the time left for the lights to change. Easy and intuitive.

I Can See Through Your Juice

I Can See Through Your Juice

The Second Life Mobile Phone Concept works on the premise that we often forget about the battery life of our mobile phones, hence run out of juice, just at the wrong time. As a remedy (rather power-saver-option) the phone incorporates a double display. When in active use the AMOLED screen powers up in all glory and in standby mode the E-ink display gets active. This essentially means that the E-ink uses very little energy and the degree of transparency of the display shows how much battery is remaining. The more transparent the display, the less battery remaining.

Spice It Up With Samba!

Spice It Up With Samba!

Spice up the art of cooking with these delightful salt ‘n peppers shakers called the Samba!  Akin to playing the maracas, these shakers bring back the fun-element in cooking. Handcrafted in fine bone china, they come in three versions and two finishes: salt and pepper, salt and chilli or sugar and cocoa; in red or black silicone rubber seals finishes. My pick is the sugar and cocoa in black!

Clipping Ergonomically

Clipping Ergonomically

The awesome Klhip Nail Clipper is a fantastic way to clip your talons. Imagine using a 17-4PH surgical stainless blade clipper designed with better grips and new kinda physics for working! So far, the pressure to be applied to nail clippers was concentrated at the end of the stick, but with the Klhip, you need to apply it right above the blade. Effortless cutting and no-flying-nails is what you get! Delightful!

BT Headset Circa 2007, Still Looks Good

BT Headset Circa 2007, Still Looks Good

Pure Rubber is a bluetooth headset designed in 2007. At the time BT headsets where large and made every wearer a cyborg-esque automaton. As sexy as that sounds, it wasn’t a good look. Once in awhile it’s nice to reach back into the archives and bear witness to which concepts actually stood the test of time. Today’s headsets all pretty much mimic the size and shape of the Pure Rubber. Nice one.

Pavement Pressure For Your Cycle

Pavement Pressure For Your Cycle

We don’t have an organized cycle-riding system here in Mumbai, but I’m sure cities like Amsterdam and Beijing will appreciate the Air Station on their pavements, where cyclists rule the roads! The station is a unique approach at providing an air pump at steady intervals, much like the gas stations for cars. The difference of course is that the Air Station is fitted into the pavement (as explained in the video) for easy access. Hook up the bike and pedal-push some air! Nice!

Drop Of Fresh Air

Drop Of Fresh Air

The awesome Air Sphere breaks from the conventional norm of fans being these blade-and-industrial-looking objects. The sophisticated drop-shape exudes elegance and becomes the focus of attention, despite its oblivious approach. It functions as an electric fan in the summer, and as an air circulator in the winter. The compact sphere (with a diameter of 300 millimeters) is small enough to fit in any room, but make no mistake about its power to please!

The Fascinating Legacy of the 2010 TUDOR Heritage Chrono Watch

The Fascinating Legacy of the 2010 TUDOR Heritage Chrono Watch

If it’s not the celestial bodies, man has depended on earthly resources (sand-clock) to keep an account of the precious moments that tick away. With age and technology, refinements to the system gave us pocket watches, grandfather clocks and even the humble wristwatch. Subtle significance in fictions like Paths of Glory, where a watch played the crucial evidence that rocked Edmund Hillary’s claim to Everest, or real-time standstills found at ground zero, a watch is a Precious Heritage that we all identify with. The 2010 TUDOR Heritage Chrono Watch is one significant addition that you’d like to inherit.

A Clean Shirt Everyday

A Clean Shirt Everyday

I actually enjoy doing laundry because the results always leave me in some warm, cuddly, lethargic relaxed state. Maybe it’s the combination of heat and dryer sheets; does it to me every time. But, if you told me I could leave it all behind and have clean clothes each time I opened my closet, I’d hand you my credit card.

Fingers For Food Feelings

Fingers For Food Feelings

The See With Fingertips is a specialized plate for the blind, to help them feel around the food-plate with hands and eat confidently, without spills. The thoughtful shape of each niche is quite interesting and I feel this idea can be extended to toddlers getting their grips on independent eating. What do you think?
