Are We Having A Road Cone For Breakfast?

Are We Having A Road Cone For Breakfast?

Sorry, wrong menu but right intentions… The On the Road Ceramic Breakfast Set is purposely crafted to resemble a Traffic Cone. Why? Simply to add the fun elements to ceramics plus to give you an espresso cup, juice glass, tea cup, cereal bowl and a small plate, in one go. Super cute and super simple, that’s the way to go!

Music In My Pillow

Music In My Pillow

A cross between the boombox on your shoulder and an MP3 player is the right description for the MU SPACE! Touted as this relaxation portable music system with a mat included, nirvana will be miles away if you use it to catch those forty winks at work! However, investing in the MU SPACE will be cheaper than Sleep Pods. After all it’s for the sake of stress-busting, relaxation & motivation of employees or pepping up complacent teens.

Yipee It's A Waterfall Sink

Yipee It’s A Waterfall Sink

There are several things that I find unique about the Sink Plate Washbasin Unit and some that I find pretty disturbing. For instance, I simply love the waterfall style faucet that is elegantly fitted onto the top panel. From a distance the entire unit looks to be stylish and exudes glam. But….

Portable Freezer With Lights

Portable Freezer With Lights

The Eco Freezer is a small picnic-hamper-sized freezer unit that uses a unique method to keep your beverages and salads chilled and fresh. The cover of the freezer features two led lamps with photocells. These lamps produce the energy for working the freezer and dispense the current via magnetic induction. If you haven’t over-stuffed the box, you may want to opt for the one lamp function, where the freezer goes into a “low mode” and gets power from only one lamp; the other lamp can be used of illumination.

Egg Shower

Egg Shower

The proteins in an egg can do wonders for your skin, but how about taking a shower in one? I’m talking about the egg-shaped shaped Cocoon Shower Stall that literally cocoons you once you shut all the glass slides. The usual spa features seen in such kinda stalls are included, but to spell them out: shower, bathtub, hydro massage (Jacuzzi) & mood lighting are there. The rain-showerhead is plum in the center of the ceiling, but I’d much rather use this for the hydra therapies!

Button Up A Watch This Winter

Button Up A Watch This Winter

Its winter and just when your hands get warm and cozy in your gloves; you get this itch to see the time. In a normal situation you would just ask someone else for the time and ignore the watch on your wrist (under the gloves). But I’m not here to relate a normal situation! Allow me to introduce you to the idea of a Button watch. A teeny-tiny clip-on that clips to your jacket or bag and tells you the time on a need-to-know-basis. Click the face once and it displays the time and date on the glass face for a few seconds.

What’s Up On The Ceiling?

What’s Up On The Ceiling?

A Fan! On one hand we have futuristic Dyson-esque Bladeless Fans seeking our attention and on the other we have a retro beauty vying for love. The Loft Wing kinda reminds me of the traditional fans or Punkahs that were attached to strings and pulled by diligent Punkahwalas in ancient Indian kingdoms. This one of course is modern enough to include a motor that performs the swinging motion.

Prison Diary Online

Prison Diary Online

For a moment the news of Brit prisoners on home leave being handed out Viagra made me crack up, but once I understood the psychology behind it, I was more compassionate. It’s very vital to keep prisoners in the “right frame of mind” and creative writing can be a good outlet. The P:log is a secured random blogging system for prisoners that keeps the author anonymous, but family members and mentors are allowed to identify and communicate with the author.

Switch Socket

Switch Socket

Neat name for a Switch + Socket system – One.One.Two! The idea behind this design is to give you a sleek multi-purpose socket so that you can use it to hook up the many devices you own, without going on socket-installation overdrive. The combo of course is of switch & socket, but what’s different is that it doesn’t use up-down motion to function; it uses a push up-down mechanism instead.

DJ with a Real VJ

DJ with a Real VJ

You’ve been to some shows. People up on stage singing and dancing, bands playing amazing music with some lights behind them. Have you seen Slayer? They’ve got a gigantoric screen behind them. Not only does their music explode people’s eardrums, the visuals explode their eyeballskins. What’s new in that? It’s faderTouch. A rear projection touchscreen interface developed by VJ Fader, aka James Cui.

Convenience In Pressing!

Convenience In Pressing!

Since the chore is so dowdy and downright hateful, Designer Lisa Töpfer decided to make us a fun ironing kit that entices us to actually iron some clothes. I totally dig the foldable ironing mat that holds in the iron, when not in use. The main unit uses Lithium-Polymer-Battery-Technology offering the convenience of cordless ironing. A temperature sensor integrated into the iron makes the appliance work at a single setting that is multi-textile friendly. Like Lisa says, “Find a positive ironing experience with the ironing kit Feinraus.”

Pay The Correct Fare

Pay The Correct Fare

Hate to admit this but auto rickshaw meter tampering in India is quite common. The drivers get away with their devious plan because the current meter calculates fare based on the rotations of the wheel of the vehicle. This system can be easily tampered with; hence a lot of us end up getting duped! The A-Rix hopes to solve this problem by offering a tamper-proof device that calculates fare with the help of a GPS Chip.
