I’m Rich With Memo Money

I’m Rich With Memo Money

Fake Dollar bills are commonplace and illegal, but if you’re looking at playing pretend ‘I’m a Rich Korean’, then Money Memo is for you. Nothing earth-shattering about the concept, except that you get to show-off wads of Korean Won, albeit a note-pad version. Stash some in your pocket or wallet for handy note-takings (pun intended)!

My iPad Has A Camera

My iPad Has A Camera

Ha, I’m one up on you iPad users and I don’t even own an iPad for that matter! But if I were to buy one I’d team mine up with the iPad Cam-Case , because it makes up for the loss of a camera on the pad! What makes the concept super-awesome is that the camera can be rotated to capture your face when video-chatting. The camera is located in the corner which works well for landscape or portrait viewing and the rubber-plastic case provides a better grip when handling the device.

Eat Where You Please

Eat Where You Please

Recent design graduate Khatija Aslam knows the student life pretty well, especially the mealtimes! Living in dorms, the uninviting cafeteria and the lack of time to actually grab a bite…she’s been there, done that; hence this project! The Dine Away is a lunch box concept that allows you to pack in food and carry it to your comfort place to dine in peace. It’s got everything planned, right from the flatware to the mats. I know some of you could really do with this compact box.

Diploma In Cord Management

Diploma In Cord Management

Do you have a diploma in appliance management? It’s a new course for silly folks who wrap the electric cord around a hot toaster or kettle, burning out the plastic cover and putting themselves in danger. A candidate for this diploma is my mother, coz she’s always doing such silly things to her appliance, especially when she is stowing away the iron! Dumb, but true! Since course fees are high, I’m gonna ask appliance makers to adopt the E-Line Cord instead, sensible to wrap around a grooved wire, than a hot appliance.

Beetle Juice Inspired!

Beetle Juice Inspired!

The onymacris unguicularis is a beetle found in the Namibian desert and has the most unique way of procuring water. Early in the morning, when the dew enriched fog is settled over the dunes, the beetle goes to the peak and positions its body in such a way that it helps in dew formation, and slurps up the water thus formed. Using this technique is the Dew Bank Bottle. It’s made is such a way that the steel body helps to assimilate the morning dew and channel it into the bottle immediately.

Not Your Typical Dishwasher

Not Your Typical Dishwasher

Most dishwashers are the size of a washing machine, taking up as much space. What if you are a small family unit or a singleton? You don’t need such a huge size for 2 plates, a glass and some dishes? The Instant Dishwasher addresses these questions and comes off as this table-top version that integrates comfortably into your kitchen counter. A sliding top reveals a pull-up basket for your dishes, and more importantly it’s placed right next to the sink for easy plumbing and waste disposal.

Light Saber For The Table, With A Digi Frame

Light Saber For The Table, With A Digi Frame

It depends on you entirely, how crazy or clean you keep your workspace. Family pictures, calendars, table lamp etc. require their own nook, thus cramming up the table. For those who can’t do without stuff, you need a table that can conceal the frills, until required. You need the “Hidden Friends”, a table that has a pop-up table lamp (looks like a lightsaber) and a pop-up digital pictureframe concealed into its surface. Clever way of keeping a clutter-free table! But what if you place a book on top of the concealed frame and forget about it?

Piano Mode For MP3

Piano Mode For MP3

Most digital players come with an array of bizarre functions, some essential and some of them frivolous. If bizarre is the name of your game, then I’m sure you will appreciate the Piano Silhouette, an MP3 player that comes with a roll-out piano keyboard. So you can listen to music and make some too! For now it only allows you to play along with the music, kinda like reverse karaoke. *But what will be really kickass is if it allows you to record compositions directly to the player.

Automatic Funnel

Automatic Funnel

UNIECO (Universal – Ecofriendly) is a very smart bottle design for those who use liquid refills like soap, shampoo, lotions etc. Refill packs always work out economical, but the problem with the pouch is the transfer of contents to a bottle without spilling out, especially if the bottle has a small mouth. The UNIECO bottle comes with a reversible silicon rubber flap near the neck. When inverted, the flap becomes a funnel and directs all the liquid straight into the mouth, thus avoiding spills and wastage. Good for butterfingers!

Loop Makes The Difference

Loop Makes The Difference

i-sound Transformable Earphones are simple! They are normal earbud-style and they don’t presume that your ear hole will be a perfect fit. Hence they come with a cord-loop that goes around the earlobe. I told you the design was simple and easy to implement, why didn’t Sony or Apple think of this? The earphones that came with my K750i keep falling out!

What Do FIFA Referees Lack? Third Eye

What Do FIFA Referees Lack? Third Eye

It only takes a stinky fish to dirty the entire pond, and this year FIFA has 2 fishes tainting their image. To rub salt over our wounds Sepp Blatter apologizes but still says FIFA has reservations over incorporating technology into the sport. I have only two words for him: England and Mexico! Even a money-spinning sport like cricket has adopted the third umpire into the game, because we are only HUMANS! FIFA too needs a “Referee Third Eye”.
