All In One Loo With A Reason

All In One Loo With A Reason

The Home Core concept integrates the toilet bowl, sink, mirror and a vanity table into one. However, this is not the central theme for this all-in-one-loo. There is a water storage tank right below the sink, where you can choose to store the currently used water or allow it to drain off. (The stored water is meant for flushing the pot) Also, the water pressure from the tap can be moderated to four different levels, giving you the satisfaction of conserving some resource.

Smart Dispenser

Smart Dispenser

Very basic and minimum, that’s the Eco-pump Refill Dispenser for you. It’s just an outer shell, with a nozzle and pipe that can fit over refill pouches directly. So this means you don’t have to spill the refill pouch contents into a bottle…you know the drill. Result? Minimal wastage, once you’re through with the refill pouch, screw in another. Just for an added effect, the pump has tiny Braille engravings so that shampoo and soap bottles can be differentiated, even with shampoo suds in your eyes.

Less Emissions than a Narwhal

Less Emissions than a Narwhal

It’s true! Even narwhals let some gas go once in a while. This boat we’re about to talk about has zero! When the beans don’t go in one end, the beans don’t come out the other! It’s called “ZEMBO” because it is a zero emissions boat. How does it get around then, you might ask? It’s got a wave generator! And a fuel cell, too. I’m totally pumped up about the wave generator though, most of all.

Monitor Your Power Diet

Monitor Your Power Diet

Diet charts are hard to monitor, but keeping a tab on what your power-hungry gizmos is not so cumbersome, easy in fact. You need stuff like the DIET WATT system to do the calculations for you. The DIET WATT_Sub keeps a tab on the plug of the gadget and displays consumption info in real time. It transmits the readings to the DIET WATT_Main, which is the hub of info and calculations for all your appliances. The idea is that the results will put you on this guilt trip and encourage your to conserve rather than squander our resources.

Love Pot is HOT!

Love Pot is HOT!

A brilliant design with good intentions is always a winner. For the design part, Love Pot is a non-electric humidifier plus aroma dispenser. It has this tissue ball made from laminated wool felt to maximize evaporation in limited volume. Another point in favor of the wool felt is that it absorbs water fast, and launders well. For the intentions part: this $30 pot is for the Nanum project, where 100% of the profits go as charity to provide educational scholarships to impoverished children. That’s what I call Design with a Conscious!

Just A Matter Of Habit

Just A Matter Of Habit

Bad habits die hard, especially the ones where you have to go switch off your electronics from the mains. Doing their bit to resolve this issue, designers Daun Yun & Junil Choi have come up with the “Switcle”, the plug-point and the switch married into one! Dang, only one tiny flaw, you still need to remember to switch OFF.

Disposable Handles Are Cookie Friendly

Disposable Handles Are Cookie Friendly

We have disposable cups so why not disposable handles? The Clean Cup holder slides onto most disposable cups instantly turning them into a proper mug. You can even write on the neck so people know what you’re drinking and who it belongs to. But perhaps the most interesting tidbit is the offset design of the rings enabling one to securely hold their cup while manipulating a delicious cookie

This Time It’s A Sexy Watch

This Time It’s A Sexy Watch

Besides it’s sexy looks, what I like most about the OXY Watch is that it’s unisex. Routine specs like Time, Date, Calendar, and Alarm are included, but what makes it stand out is its gorgeous E-ink display. It’s been conceived in several versions with stainless steel and colored leather strap combos, encasing a monochrome display with mineral glass. XKALIA Typography has been used to display the numerics, which really goes well with the styling.

Light Up Some Memory

Light Up Some Memory

Dedicated to Phillumeny, the Phillu is a matchbox shaped portable memory storage device with matchsticks that have 5 GB storage capacity. Nine sticks in the box, essentially translating to 45 GB collective capacity. The trick is that you really need to light the sticks to transfer the data.

The Business Of Re-potting Plants

The Business Of Re-potting Plants

I’m not so updated with the green business, but I’m sure folks who have an active green thumb understand the nuances of “Re-potting a Plant” and the burden that comes with proper transfer of plants from one pot to the other. Re-flowerpot looks at doing away with the heartbreak of losing a sapling due to its incorrect transfer. The pot simply breaks-up into two parts, kinda like a mold for your soil and plant. Happy Re-potting to you!

Cargo Shipping With Care And Accuracy

Cargo Shipping With Care And Accuracy

While working in the cargo bay for moving and shifting heavy loads with cranes, two things really bother the crew, one is their safety and the other is accurate transfer of the load. Addressing both these issues is the Safeguard Device. It’s a contraption that attaches to the crane (as illustrated in the images). From it’s height above, the device beams a laser graphic to the floor below, clearly marking the danger zone for the crew to avoid. The infrared helps in assisting the accurate transfer of the cargo from point A to B, thus eliminating the help of the ground crew.

Italian Supercar Bathroom

Italian Supercar Bathroom

Two objects, both inspired by the famous car studio Pininfarina. Aerodynamical forms, fast and sporty. These lovelies come in two colors: fresh green (color of a life,) and scarlet (a traditional racing color.) Surfaces similar to racing auto varnish, nice to use, nice to race (if you’re into racing sinks, that is.)

Skip To Make Some Light

Skip To Make Some Light

With all the energy you expend while jumping rope, imagine using some to power a handy torchlight fitted within the skipping rope handles. Torchlight in any form is a good idea, but the cool quotient in this Jump Light comes from the fact that you won’t need any batteries to power the bulb. It simply runs by converting the kinetic energy from your jumps to electric energy. Now if that isn’t motivational enough for you to skip just a bit more!
