Move! Your Butt And Stuff

Move! Your Butt And Stuff

Dual functionality is the name of the game and if you add in words like “green”, ecofirendly” or “recycle”, the game gets better. What we have here is a simple enough solution to a problem that might not exists;but let’s just go with the flow for a moment. Scenario is that you move often and/or don’t have the resources to furnish your sparse accommodation, so you probably need boxes that can double up as furniture. So when you’re not packing stuff into “Move!”, just rearrange its body to become this seat to park your butt.

For The Love Of Coffee

For The Love Of Coffee

I think I’ve confessed one too many times that tho I’m a coffee addict, I just can’t spend too much time nurturing it. There are actually freaks like me who LOVE instant coffee and don’t want to do the grinding-percolating routine. Which is why I simply adore this ceramic-glass fusion called Coffee Set. It’s a cup with a slotted bottom that holds in just right amount of coffee powder and water, for you to stir the mixture with the handle. Yup no spoons required! The design gets even more interesting with the saucer, which has a missing bottom!

 Becoz I Like To Move My Sofa Around

Becoz I Like To Move My Sofa Around

Long before it became a fad to hire interior designers to do up your rooms, humble folks just rearranged their furniture to give their home a new look. Times and trends now dictate that either we use innovative stuff that never gets obsolete or keep hiring the cash-drain! Fitting into the former category is the EQUALIZE Multifunctional Furniture Modules; a set of three pieces that can be configured in your free-fancy way. Create sofa, couch, folding table, flower or fruit vase!

Washing Machine Divides and Conquers

Washing Machine Divides and Conquers

I want this in my home NOW. We all know step 1 in caring for your clothes is to properly wash them but who can be bothered with the whole separate and sort bit? Technically you should sort by color first, then fabric. That all adds up to multiple loads, some of which may not be full which makes you an evil water waster. The Individual Washer concept is an upright washing machine with 3 compartments to sort and launder your clothes together without worry about color bleeding or bleaching. Now I’m looking at my washing machine with contempt.

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.
