No strainer, no problem.

The OneBowl is a hybrid design that allows you to cook, strain, eat and store all in one bowl! Let’s say you’re cooking pasta- rather than transfer to a strainer from the pan, put it directly in the OneBowl, twist the handle and voila! The water is release through the bottom while keeping your hands out of harms way. Then just cover and store!

The External Green House

The External Green House

The Garden Pod has one big thing working in its favor – it utilizes the external walls of a dwelling rather than clamoring for space indoors. This modular green house is designed so that it can be fitted onto exteriors of a building and can take advantage of the natural energy sources. A handy app allows you to control the setting of the pod and also relays essential information such as which vegetable is ripe enough and how much compost is available.

Reinventing Oral Hygiene Through Design & Innovation

Reinventing Oral Hygiene Through Design & Innovation

For our entire cultural history, we’ve been developing technologies to simplify our lives. It’s become the main driving force behind our species as a whole: no longer do we evolve to better suit our environment, we modify our environment to suit us. This is true of everything we use in our everyday lives. Take your toothbrush, for example. You probably take it for granted, you don’t even notice it anymore.

Expanding Power

Expanding Power

The Fit In Battery not only resolves the issue of removing a battery from its slot but also expanding to suit A size to AAA and AA sizes as well. Resizing of batteries has been of interest for many years and designers keep innovating on the form and function. The real question here is, when will the makers adopt any of these concepts, or are we really done with the round shape forever?

Sleep Light

Sleep Light

Insomnia is a disease affecting quite a large number of people; moreover sleep patterns are disturbed due to work pressures and life in general. The ‘Under The Sea’ light is an attempt to create a nurturing environment with ambient lighting that mimics calm waters. The thought process behind the design is the sense of security we feel when in our mother’s womb and it builds upon this concept. To add a dash of functionality, when you turn down the light, it switches to study or reading mode.

Instant Stain Removing

Instant Stain Removing

It’s the law of attraction: you’re having a trashy morning and just when you’re heading out the door with a cuppa java on the go… you spill it on your shirt. The only difference this time around is that instead of fretting, you slide on the Electrolux Instant Cleaning Glove and wipe out all traces of that offending coffee stain in a jiffy. The neoprene glove disintegrates any stain or dirt from fabrics using the combination of nanotechnology and ultrasound.
