Confessions of a Coffee Addict

Confessions of a Coffee Addict

Like most of you, I’m a coffee addict and love to carry my java with me. The problem with most cuppa joe’s is that they don’t provide for instant gratification, aka brewing on the go. The Nomad Coffee Maker rectifies the situation by being this portable maker that taken in the coffee filter on one end and dispenses the brew into the other (or any cup/container). Practical in its approach, the design also includes a USB connection to power the maker via your laptop or wall socket. Very Clever!

Meet The First Aid Blanket

Meet The First Aid Blanket

I love the world of inspiration, imagination and concept design! How else is it possible that we have two strikingly similar concepts, designed by teams that are geographically poles apart and both go on to win prestigious design awards. Take a look at the First Aid Cover by Jussi Koskimäki here, now come back and review the First Aid Blanket. Jussi bagged the prestigious Braun Prize, while the Asian team has bagged the Red Dot Awards. To be honest I love them both, because of their practical approach at guiding lay people in first aid.

In The Mood For A New Laptop?

In The Mood For A New Laptop?

Love this refreshing design for a laptop by Antoine Beynel. It’s got that sexy aluminum finish and neat keys on the keyboard. What makes it stand apart is the customizable integrated sleeve that becomes a part of the computer. This ways you can protect your laptop and carry it with ease. Another striking feature is the way the ports on the side can be hidden and protected while traveling. Very cool!

New Skin ... Faster Than Ever

New Skin … Faster Than Ever

The ReSkin Device is an innovative medical tool that can help burn victims make recovery faster with the help of skin grafts. Essentially, stem cells are harvested and then made to grow as skin in a special incubator. This special formula is then sprayed onto the victim requiring the graft. The time taken for the initial process is under two hours, which is significantly faster than the current methods. What is interesting is that the entire healing process takes about a week and is relatively painless. Super!

Neat Pair of Headphones

Neat Pair of Headphones

Headphones these days are either over packed with features or over packed with design. Finding a pair that balances the two is quite difficult. When Grain Audio announced their Over Ear Headphones (OEHP.01), we at Yanko Design got quite excited, because here was a pair that offered impeccable acoustics, superb design and a complete Sonic Experience. The equation balances just beautifully!

The Camp All-rounder

The Camp All-rounder

Love this idea of making things compact and portable, especially with camping gear. So what we have here is the 2 In1 Walkie-Talkie Audio, it is basically an LED Flashlight, Bluetooth Speaker and SOS GPS Locator Device, rolled into one. It syncs with your mobile phone and can be used as independent products. The concept works as a walkie-talkie, where the Flashlight communicates with the base and can be used in emergency situations to locate with those gone astray.

The Age of Modular Phones

The Xcel 1M concept phone has the vibe of being a very simple modular phone that does away with complicated user interfaces. It features three simple slots to connect external devices and works with a custom ROM called SLIDE UI. Simple and sleek the idea worth exploring and taking forward. Any takers?

From the makers of the super-portable T1 lamp comes an equally minimalist counterpart that feels right at home on the top of your desk. Called the T2 lamp, its thin form is achieved thanks to a custom LED board producing 520 Lux of brightness using only 2 watts of power! In a material mix of natural wood, steel glass, and colorful cording, it’s the best looking T lamp yet.

Audiophile or not, the basic requirement for enjoying your music is a great speaker. If you add portability, then you have a winner on your hands. I’m talking about the Proper Audio 2, a speaker that offers rich sound and great flexibility. The truth behind portable speakers is that they are mostly used at home or at work, so instead of paying a premium for a tiny speaker, PA2 gives you useful movability, great sound and sleek looks at an amazing price.
