Deep Sea Exploring

Deep Sea Exploring

Fluke is a diving robot designed for the deep abyss. The data collected serves to deepen our understanding of the ocean as an ecosystem. The research probes are equipped with flexible, pressure-resistant carriers suitable for holding various sensors in order to prepare for the respective missions. Extremely effective and featuring reduced energy consumption, the low-complexity drive system concept is based on the movements of a fish and can be manufactured affordably.

Projecting With OO

Projecting With OO

Built from semi monocoque carbon fiber, the durable OO wireless projector is a part of the GEO series from designer David Riesenberg. As he explains, the projector displays high definition (1080p) data via WiFi or internal SSD storage and works independently from any wire for up to 3 hours. It does rely on its internal Li-Ion battery for some support but hooks up to any power source (via a single wire), should the need arise.

Getting A Drip On Light

Getting A Drip On Light

The Ring-ge-roo Light shuttles between innovative, unique and kitsch! It definitely takes the sting out of a hospital drip, which is loathsome yet essential. The uniqueness lies in the way the design uses LED and water for effectively refracting light and creating an eccentric ambiance. I wouldn’t mind hanging this off my arm; just to get some special effects I’d use colored water, as recommended by the designer.

Revenge Of The G-Spot Mouse

Revenge Of The G-Spot Mouse

Its International Women’s Day and its befitting that I confuse you guys with Andy Kurovets’ Maze Of Time. There is a connection between the two… you had fun at the expense of the female anatomy and now it’s time to pay for those silly smirks! The Maze Of Time watch uses colors in a kaleidoscopic way to represent the time. So when you see a chaotic yellow line below, it’s actually the number “1”. Blue is the number “2”, red color stands for “3”, and “4” corresponds to the green etc. Kinda TokyoFlash-esque and time to get your grey cells working!

A Giraffe Fork And A Monkey Spoon

A Giraffe Fork And A Monkey Spoon

I’m suffering from cute overload because this concept is just too… well, cute! The Children’s Cutlery and Dinner Set (they can do better than that) attempts to tie in the joys of eating with a bit of education. Kids can learn about animals while training to use flatware. Where’s the adult version huh? I want lions, panthers, bears, and a platypus. Yea a PLATYPUS. I want the plate to be a training stage for real manly eating – a Mortal Combat dining experience if you will.

No Excuse For Bad Oral Hygiene

No Excuse For Bad Oral Hygiene

At most it only takes 10 minutes to go thru a proper oral cleaning routine but many of us are guilty of skimping out. You know who you are. They have devices that do all the work now so there’s no excuse but in this immediately gratifying lifestyle we always want the easy way out so the Steward Oral Care system is here to save the day.

The Real Guitar Video Game

The Real Guitar Video Game

The REAL, I said. The REAL one. This is the one where you learn a real, actual, applicable beyond the game skill. Habeeb it! The designer of this project had the idea stop upon his mind-grapes while he was watching friends jam upon Guitar Hero and Rock Band all day long. He thought hey, they’re so good at this, but they can’t play a real guitar at all! Well wouldn’t you know it, he was (and is!) an industrial designer so he pumped up his muscles and got to work creating what he calls “Vision.”

Wind Up With Glee

Wind Up With Glee

Putting it straight enough for you, Wind Up Socket has a timer to it, once you set the duration and time’s up, the electricity supply to that socket gets cut off. For grownups who don’t have many restrictions and can self regulate, this one may seem more cumbersome than anything else. But for moms with teens who don’t comprehend “half hour of TV / Videogames time”; this is booty! I’d only be careful of placing the cords of various gadgets carefully, otherwise its set!

Mozart Of Lights

Mozart Of Lights

So you can’t be a conductor of any musical symphony nor do you have any creativity in painting and art. Tough luck, but what if I gave you this magical wand, that allowed you to transform your ceiling into a magical landscape of color LEDs, that brighten up and dim at the flick of your wrist, wouldn’t you be the Mozart of lights? Draw The Lights makes you a capable light conductor! What I mean is that clusters of LEDs take command from this “light brush” in your hand, and sparkle to create mesmerizing ambient settings.

Bumping Action Deleted

Bumping Action Deleted

My memory for movies is trash but I’m sure there must have been many which featured a scene where the hero and heroine accidentally bump into each other, around a corner…papers fly outta their hand, they look into each other’s eyes and fall hopelessly in love. Revise this scene with the Corner’s Communication Warning Sign and it’s ought to be a killjoy. But for practical purposes, down long office corridors, restaurants and hospitals, this corner sign could save a lot of spills.

Never Singe Another Garment

Never Singe Another Garment

As a new bride, it was expected from me to know how to manage all the household chores. The spoilt brat that I was, I didn’t even know how to iron clothes. Yes, the expected happened I burned many of my husband’s shirts, mainly because a telephone call or a whistling pressure cooker would grab my attention. I’d leave the iron right on the garment and come back to a gaping burnt hole! The Roly Poly Iron would have saved me a lot of clothes thanks to a built-in weight mechanism.

Do You Have The Right Sexy Tools?

Do You Have The Right Sexy Tools?

I didn’t know tools had to be so sexy (think Mike Delfino), ah naughty minds! I’m talking about this REPÄIRE TOOLSET; handy dandy and smart! All the necessary tools to help you become the puurrfect handyman, so much so that you can actually show this set off! It gets integrated into the bookshelf and within arm’s reach. What I really dig is the color combos and the way a central blue (or red) ring is the hub of all equipments.

Swinging The Other Way

Swinging The Other Way

Most of the time you’re nudging your co-bench partner to give you more seat space. So essentially sitting on benches really sucks. Generally they’re hard slabs of wood or concrete and do nothing much for your posterior or fun! This is the reason why we need more of the Swing Together Bench; I don’t need to say much…just have a look at the video and you’ll get the full picture. Google Offices can do with this swing!
