Want A 3D Mobile Phone?

Want A 3D Mobile Phone?

With Samsung and company outing 3D televisions for home viewers and China loving 3D newspapers, it’s not too farfetched to picture the technology being used in laptops and mobile phones. Focusing on the use of 3D in cellphones, Petr Kubik has designed this all-in-one-piece that includes the glasses, intuitive stylus and expandable screens. The 3D apps support 3D movies and camera plus allow you to make surreal calls with family and friends that pop outta the screen!

A Rule For A Man's Man

A Rule For A Man’s Man

Well here’s something clever and that means I want it! The Leather Ruler works just like any other except there’s a large piece of supple leather to provide the weight and traction necessary when drawing those important straight lines. When you’re done, just roll it up and throw it in your pack. If it seems unnecessary then let us not forget MUJI makes a crap load of money selling items just like this. People would definitely buy it.

Solar Energy, Band-Aids and The iPad

Solar Energy, Band-Aids and The iPad

Those kooky but fun Korean design gurus are at it again. You’d be surprised how hefty the iPad is and that smooth surface is just begging to slip out of sweaty hands so the Band are band-aids you stick all over the back of the iPad to create traction. A little too kooky for ya? How about the Solar Panel Bag – yes a backpack with solar cells arranged into Steve Jobs’ favorite fruit. Let the whole world know you’re an Apple fan.

Draining Experiences Can Be Cute!

Draining Experiences Can Be Cute!

Cleaning the toilet drain is quite a stinky job in my opinion, and can never be labeled as cute! However, a look at the delightful Carack Drain Design, and I’m sold. The cuteness factor is personified in the accompanying video, where once the drain is choked with your body grime and hair, a blue head bobs up and down to indicate – it’s un-clogging time! Another factor in its favor is the sunken drain-trap; it keeps the ghastly hair-strands out of sight.

Danger Alert Enabler

Danger Alert Enabler

A view of the ambient noise is what this device hopes to give people with less than a perfect sense of hearing. The fashionable bit of the Danger Alert Enabler, is the wristband, but it also comes with a “micro device.” The way these two bits work together is: sound goes in one, comes out the other. But as the micro device, which sits on your belt, hears sound, it interprets it and translates it to a corresponding pictogram and in some cases, a vibration for warning.

Book Journals My Shrinking Waistline

Book Journals My Shrinking Waistline

To lose weight you must decrease caloric intake and increase physical activity. Simple equation but damn hard to follow. Motivation is the all important and invisible variable and very few products on the market address it. Workbook 001, the Food & Fitness Diary flip book logs 26 weeks of nutrition and exercise. Following every two weeks you measure yourself and by the end of the year, even Kate Moss will envy you. Don’t believe me? Just flip thru the book and watch that shrinking waistline.

KitchenAid Variable Grill

KitchenAid Variable Grill

The KitchenAid Variable Grill is Tempur-Pedic bliss to your burgers. The top surface of the grill is split into more than a hundred individual surfaces that completely envelope food. This provides a fuller grilling experience from all sides. The cool thing is each unit only turns on when it senses food thereby saving energy (sic). Interesting concept. DO WANT!

Illuminating Cells

Illuminating Cells

It doesn’t really take a lot to be creative in the way you illuminate your home space. From the outlandish Etirement lamp to the sophisticated elegance of the d°light Bubbles, all it takes is a little knack of picking out the best. The Cell Lamps here, easily fall into the “cute idea” category. Bunch-up a couple of them, just like the leaves of a tree, and see how awesome they look together. As a single piece, they give a healthy competition to the Soap Light.

Pressing Out The Bacteria And Grime

Pressing Out The Bacteria And Grime

Lupe is this innovative iron which can cut down the 3 steps of doing laundry into 1. The 3 steps being: washing, drying and ironing. Swipe it over that blob of dirt on your favorite Tee, and watch it dry-clean, sanitize and iron it at, all at once. Am I being to futuristic about this? No ways! I think if appliances like this are made available, then Carrie Bradshaw and her single friends will have no issues with doing the dirty laundry!

Pencil Sharpener?

Pencil Sharpener?

Apparently I’m out of the loop but some people grind their pencils against cement flooring to sharpen it so this handy dandy device called the Re-knife makes it a bit easier with a portable stone. One side is rough, the other smooth. Who knew? Would any of you use this?

A Vase Full Of Plugs

A Vase Full Of Plugs

I’d like to think of the “Draw Rose” project as a vase full of Rose Plugs! I doubt there are many who like having wires around; Bluetooth and wireless peripherals are the way to go. But if we do need to resort to extension cords, plugs and sockets and the wires-drama; may as well make it as appealing as rose plugs!

They’re Cute!

Jazzing Up The Indian Piano

Jazzing Up The Indian Piano

Those of you who follow Indian music will know that the Harmonium plays a very integral part in Bollywood music compositions. The instrument per-se may not be used in the songs but when the movie director, music composer, singers and the hero of the movie, sit for “music sessions”, they rely on this instrument for composing the melody. Designers Amandeep Singh gives this dowdy wind instrument a fresh lease of life, by making it look as good as any swanky Yamaha piano!
