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!

Light Tree

Light Tree

The title of this post is pretty boring but it describes exactly what this concept is; a Light Tree. The artificial tree is covered in solar cells that power ultra-bright LEDs at the base. The light diffuses thru water which fills the entire cavity of the tree for that “glowy” look. The upper extremities hold seeds to REAL PLANTS, like OMG! I was getting worried about the total artificiality of this concept but at least you’ve got some green shrubbery in there.

Disco Lights For USB

Disco Lights For USB

Getting back to his roots, Designer Mac Funamizu takes inspiration from the Japanese Soma-Toh or a revolving lantern for this gimmicky Funny USB Memory Stick! Involved here is a transparent USB memory stick with alluring lights to represent facts. Example: no lights = empty stick; pink light = images stored; blue = documents & green = movies. And when the lights fill up the tube, it simply means memory is full. A delightful design, which is a tangent from the Swarosvki and gilded ones presently in the market.

Free Diving is a Dangerous Sport

Free Diving is a Dangerous Sport

And yet more and more people are doing it. Why people why?!?! Listen, we weren’t meant to be underwater. The fact that our cell walls start to explode and oxygen levels deplete in a few minutes should be half a clue that mother nature didn’t design us to be here. Then again, nature didn’t design us to fly nor sit at the computer blogging all day so I digress. If you love free diving, then you may need the D-eepdive gadget.

Food For Thought

Food For Thought

There’s a paradigm shift in the science of food. Fifteen ago proper nutrition meant augmenting the kind of foods you ate. Buzz words like low-carb, low-cal, non-fat, low-glycemic, organic, and natural made their way into our vocabulary and yet we’re becoming fatter and unhealthier. Philips Design envisions a range of products that not only identify the true contents of food, but also how it affects your individual body.
