This Vacuum Sucks!

This Vacuum Sucks!

In the best way! As you might’ve guessed from the name, Not Only Dust is a handheld vacuum solution for picking up more than fine particles. Most mini-vacs get larger debris stuck in the mouth opening, but this features a dual compartment design that collects and stores big and small fragments separately without obstructing air-flow. Better yet, it’s reversible and can be used as a dustpan for even larger debris.

The Easy-to-find Fire Extinguisher

The Easy-to-find Fire Extinguisher

If a fire broke out in your office or apartment building, would you know the location of your fire extinguisher? Probably not! You’d likely be in such a panic that you’d also be less concerned with looking for it. The “I’m Here” extinguisher takes these factors in to account & features a built in smoke detector that triggers audible & visible light alarms that not only warn you of fire, but make locating the extinguisher easy. Better yet, the light doubles as a flashlight so you can make your way to safety at night or in heavy smoke.

Share the Noise in Your Life

Share the Noise in Your Life

Tchotchkes, photos & other tangible objects are all effective when it comes to reflecting on our memories, but what if you could hear your memories rather than see them? The Backtrack concept explores this alternative sensory approach to preserving memories. Equipped with GPS, the device detects the user’s location & records audio when specified. Users then define the precise emotion they were feeling at the moment.

The Shutterbug's Speaker

The Shutterbug’s Speaker

Before you start pouting and trying to click selfies with that thing, let me just tell you, it may look like a camera, but it’s actually an audio device. Yeah. Soundbarrel is a camera lens-esque speaker that uses its iris diaphragm to actually regulate the amount of sound coming out of the speaker. Isn’t that a cool gimmick?! Plus, bonus points for highlighting the ‘dB’ in the SoundBarrel logo!

A charger for Mr. Rubik

A charger for Mr. Rubik

The guys behind the Cu.Braker charger took “circuit breaking” rather literally. Everyone owns a smart-device. No one owns any modicum of patience. We put our phones on charge and just forget about it for hours. Even though manufacturers take precautions for overcharging a device, it still isn’t good for the battery’s health or life. Cu.Braker is an indicative charger that let’s you know when your phone has charged completely, and also does you the favour of mechanically cutting off the power supply.

When it comes to desks, there’s a fine line between too little and too much. The latest design from Tommasco Guerra is a perfect example of that sweet spot! Simplistic, light, and minimal in form, it’s equally substantial in usable desk top space without an overwhelming footprint. DO WANT!

Modern Classic Timepiece

Modern Classic Timepiece

The “Epic” concept watch features traditional shapes, colors and material finishes, yet is unconventional in the presentation of the time. No hands, no numbers… simply 3 disks of varying size (designated for hours, minutes and seconds) against a symmetrical burst of lines represent the hour. At once modern and subdued, users will find its style is easy to wear both dressed up or dressed down.

When the Phantom calls, everyone listens...

When the Phantom calls, everyone listens…

The Germans and the Italians are pioneers in automobiles. The Swiss in timepieces. The French, although connoisseurs of fashion, have created some surprisingly good audio equipment. The Phantom, by Devialet (the most awarded audio equipment company in the world) isn’t referred to as a speaker, but as an “imploding sound centre”, and for fathomable reasons. The tiny soccer ball sized speaker is formidable enough to outshine loudspeakers more than twenty times its size.

Go Out in Style

Go Out in Style

Far from your everyday horse-drawn funeral carriage, The Last Ride was designed to remind everyone that you’ll be just as fierce in the afterlife as you were in this one! Ok… but in all seriousness- the carriage takes inspiration from classic artillery and funerary carts where the large wheels were a dominant visual element, translating this to one giant wheel with two hubless rotary tracks. With The Last Ride, it’s sure to be the most fabulous funeral everrrrr!
