Measure This

Measure This

The Shell is a sleek digital scale sexified with good modern looks. Lift off the Stainless Steel measuring bowl to reveal a large LCD display and simple controls. Rest the upturned bowl on the unit and it’s ready to weigh both liquids and dry foods. A convenient ‘add and weigh’ function also allows multiple ingredients to be weighed in the same bowl during recipe preparation and an auto power-off feature maximizes battery life. So perfect for all my crazy crafting needs, like changing base metals into gold. Hehehe, hahaha, AHAHAHAHA!

No Scratch Watch

No Scratch Watch

This cool concept watch by designer Allan George is basically aimed at the youth who like to wear trendy fashion, but maybe rough with it. Although latest scratch-proof glass materials are used in Omega, Rolex and ilk, but not all brands use this for their entire collection. And a watch with scratches on its glass looks so lame! Allan’s concept simple does away with the glass face and replaces it with a plastic-rubber finish. The colored hands peep out, behind a transparent rim, giving the watch a trendy and easy look!

Cooking Made Efficient

Cooking Made Efficient

The Catalyst is a all-in-one cooking solution designed for the Indian market consisting of a hood, microwave oven, fryer, and cook top. The induction cooking plated slide apart to reveal a fryer for all those delicious Indian foods. All the vapors are captured by the hood above which also happens to be the oven. Quite the efficient design no? I LOVE me some Indian food too but find the fragrant spices to be so strong, my eyes water. That hood better be damn near a vacuum of air.

Where Is My Seat? Oh, Now I See It

Where Is My Seat? Oh, Now I See It

These days we can choose our own seats over the internet for airplanes and train travel, thus we know exactly where our seat is going to be. At least for that moment we do know. However in a practical scenario, many people don’t check-in online or our memories fail us on the date of travel. Where Is My Seat? is a concept where a pictograph of your seat location is printed onto the boarding pass. All I can say that it’s more helpful than just printing seat 34A, Economy Class.

But Is It Faster Than A Rabbit

But Is It Faster Than A Rabbit

It’s a USB flash drive inspired by a turtle. Just slide the toggle to make the turtle head, I mean connector pop open. Pretty straight forward eh? It doesn’t do anything special. It’s just freaking CUTE. Look at the eyes! Hey, I’d buy it. One question tho; is it faster than a rabbit?

Capture Cleavage Pictures The Legit Way

Capture Cleavage Pictures The Legit Way

Aerial Capture is a digital camera that can capture precious moments of your life from a height of 20 meters above you. Hovering over your personal stratosphere, this quirky cam is attached to a helium inflatable balloon, which strings onto a hand-held reel and trigger. Some naughty boys would love to capture cleavage and I don’t really blame them for wanting an aerial view of the mountains! The only catch is that the camera doesn’t have flash, so sneaky pictures of folks in the dark are a strict no!

Swack On A Backpack Will Ya!

Swack On A Backpack Will Ya!

Necessity is the mother of invention they say, and designer Terence Simmons has firsthand experience with it. Forced to be on crutches for a while, he escaped serious injuries due to a fall he took, when his backpack’s strap got entangled in his crutches. The incident left its mark, and with creative juices on a high….he came up with the Swack! Sweater + Backpack! Revolutionary? No…but functional, cool and handy…YES!

Woodpecker Alarm

Woodpecker Alarm

A clock based on sleep with no mention to a specific time? I’m intrigued. The clock contains two alarms that signal each day at morning and evening. It indicates when to begin your sleep routine and receive a full 8 hours. The product reflects how sleep is a natural process and as such is made from natural materials. Over time the log will shed its bark as the user develops and controls their sleep rhythm. The alarm imitates a drumming woodpecker. You can even alter the type of drumming by switching out the “beak knocker”.

A Page of Light

A Page of Light

There’s always those moments when you need light and can’t quite flip the switch or out in public in some dimly lit restaurant that makes it impossible to read the menu. Why do they do that??? I digress to a more serene note. I find this happens when I’m reading. I don’t want to light up the whole room so something like the Lightleaf is perfect. Almost as thin as paper, the entire surface illuminates to a satisfying glow. Now sure how it works but the designer says it’s wirelessly rechargeable. I assume induction.

Fork The Cables

Fork The Cables

Honestly, how many of you read about me at Unplggd, when they featured my desk? In retrospect, I am so ashamed of all the wires that snake around my beautiful desk. As a resolve I’m going to invest in some great cable managers, and since I’m design-centric too, I’d like them to be as quirky as the Fork And Cream Sauce! Kinda like forking your spaghetti…with cream sauce…ooo and buttered mushrooms on the side, and I’m getting off topic now, oh and I’m hungry too!

Stroller Suitcase, That Is Amazing!

Stroller Suitcase, That Is Amazing!

On my flight from Tokyo to India, I did see some couples struggle with their baby strollers once they boarded the aircraft. I guess the time has come that we get an all-in-one thing that folds up into a suitcase and can be stowed in the overhead luggage compartment. Maybe something like the Polyvogue! This foldable stroller should have been a contender for the Samasonite Baby Luggage Contest, but nevertheless it’s a neat idea that can go into production and that’s what matters.

A little Nature Here And There

A little Nature Here And There

OMG this is so freakin’ ADORABLE. These Leaf Ties replace boring plastic ones you may have bundling up cables and wires around the home. Bring a little nature to it by using these ties instead. Of course, I would use it as a decorative element. Hell, I may even just wrap it around my fingers and go out like that. If you want to get really creative, think about how those exposed cables sort of like like vines, except they’re missing one crucial component – leaves! Just let that marinate in your head for a minute.

Makes Me Want A Salad

Makes Me Want A Salad

It’s so simple yet effective. I love the Hands On Salad Bowl, winner of a 2010 Red Dot Award. A pair of serving sporks are integrated into the bowl blending smoothly into the design. There’s a unique sculptural element to it and hey, it’s seriously fun to look at. The entire thing is made of melamine so easy care is the name of the game. Joseph Joseph is becoming quite the little hot spot for interesting home product design lately.
