Post Baroque Hardcore Violin

Post Baroque Hardcore Violin

For over 500 million years… or wait… 500 years, the form of the violin has deviated from the baroque style very little. This violin right here, it’s different. Made by designer Hopfgartner Gerda to spearhead a new age in 4/4 design, this is indeed the “Gavari” Semiacoustic Violin. Created in co-operation with a professional Viennese violin maker to assure perfect dimensions and sound criteria.

War of the Patio Worlds

War of the Patio Worlds

There’s no deflection like reflection! Does that make sense to you? It will in a second here, just wait. As for the title of this post: this products we’re about to explore is a Heat Reflection Canopy and it’s made, quite simply, to keep your patio warm. Oh that didn’t explain it well enough for you then, ey? Well perhaps our alien overlords could explain better?

The Green Share A Cab

The Green Share A Cab

In Utopia you can actually find cabs that are willing to take you to your destination. In that same fantasy land, cabs drivers and passengers actually believe in carpooling! For such fantasy situations is the Carpool LED Top Light. This sprightly indicator harnesses the wind energy via the embedded fan to power the indicating lights. Sadly we don’t live in Utopia and we can never find a cab, let alone share one!

Skipper Don’t Forget The Rewave

Skipper Don’t Forget The Rewave

Rewave is essentially a design using Reverse Osmosis for desalinating the sea water. More for private consumption in coastal regions where fresh water is scarce or at-sea disaster situations, the Rewave is quite self-sufficient. It floats in water and harnesses the energy from the waves to power itself. Since a great amount of pressure is required for RO, the aperture has been placed at the bottom of body, allowing the seawater to get through to the motor area. After desalinating, the fresh water accumulates at the top and comes out via a pipe.

Star In Your Own 3 D Shower Movie

Star In Your Own 3 D Shower Movie

The Waterdrop Shower Room brings to life the childhood fantasies of role-playing while taking a bath. Sometimes you’re a beastly pirate and sometimes a brave hero rescuing your ducks. This exciting enclosure comes with a tactile touchscreen that almost envelopes you. Its giant screen happily plays for you soothing melodies of the Chinese Opera to Nemo (although I reckon the big guys will opt for something more seductive!) and transports you to fantasy land!

Go Around The Buttons

Go Around The Buttons

Merry go round the buttons I tell ya! Dang the button area around your starched shirt is tough to crease-out. Some irons do have indents on the side, allowing you to kinda skim around the sweet spot, but it ain’t got a Full U like the “U-Button Iron”. Hit the special button the iron and voilà! The tip retracts to reveal a U that slides under the button to give you a fully ironed shirt.

Crazy Cutlery With Identity Crisis

Crazy Cutlery With Identity Crisis

Does the Chopork have an identity crisis? Like would you classify it as a fork or a chopstick or both? Nah! I wouldn’t bother much about the functionality of two sticks turning from a fork to chopsticks. I’d be worried about branding it as Chopork; sounds more like chop-the-pork! Got any better name suggestions?

Elaborate Kitchens Really Need to Be Smart Dressed

Elaborate Kitchens Really Need to Be Smart Dressed

Must it always have to be about kitchens with lack of space? Can’t we for once focus on showing off smart products on counter-tops or wall mounted goodies! I vote for a change in perspective and say that stuff like the SmartSpace Dry Food Dispenser be on the forefront. It’s good to hold pastas, breakfast cereals, pulses etc, plus you can let your creativity get the better of you and fill it up in a very decorative way with color-coordinated dry snacks and beans.

Twist And Trash The Can

Twist And Trash The Can

There are two things make the NNew Can stand out; one it has a deliberate spiral shape and two its opening-clip has an uplifted indent. The reason for the spiral shape is obvious, it makes it easier for you to twist and crush the can with hand and dump it into the trashcan. And the reason for the indent in the clip is so that you can open the can easily without chipping a nail. I endorse the second reason wholeheartedly coz I always manage to clip mine while opening my soda-can!

Crystal To Open Doors

Crystal To Open Doors

The Open-Me is a fancy crystal ring that doubles up as a security agent. Besides looking like a hip piece of jewelry, the geometric cut of the crystal is the key to opening your doors. A 3-D scanner embedded in the door lock scans the facets of crystal, and pops open only after authenticating the cut. Only probs is that in a fit of rage, if you ever smash that crystal, you’d be locked out forever!

Story Of The 90 Degree Charge

Story Of The 90 Degree Charge

Plug on your gadget and hit the switch on…gadget recharges but you switch it off at your convenience; Waste of electricity. Let’s change this scene a bit, plug into the 90 Degree Charger, and rotate the plug manually to complete the electric circuit, like you do with a timer. When the gadget gets tanked up, the plug-point rotates back to the normal position, breaking off the circuit, thus saving on electricity. All eco-freaks are Happy! And So am I!

My Happy Office Beer

My Happy Office Beer

It doesn’t hurt to fantasize about guzzling chilled beer while working in office, except most offices don’t have refrigerators (or beer-guzzling policies), and even if they did, you couldn’t trust anyone not downing your can! So how about this personalized locker-style Flip Stacking Personal Fridge for the Office? It’s the sort of mini-fridge (for each employee) that you can stack a-top of each other. Its’ unique L-Shape makes it easy to stack and it uses Thermoelectric technology allowing it to work in any orientation, even upside-down!

When Colors Speak For Kids

When Colors Speak For Kids

Feelor Touch the Color is a color pencil set that comes with a specialized character-form on the head. It’s intended as a teaching aid for blind, preschool children, who are able to grasp concepts of shapes better than mere words or Braille. For example, if they are to color their page a particular color say red; they pull out a pencil with the head shaped as an apple, because apples are red. Likewise a chic stands for yellow, clover for green, and so on…
