One Remote Rules Them All

One Remote Rules Them All

And it’s not your wife! It is the Holme! A culmination of all the pros of a remote control and a Smartphone, the device eliminates all the cons seen individually. For example the remote is more specific and does not host WiFi while the Smartphone is very intuitive has Internet connectivity and Bluetooth. As the designer puts it, we are in a digital era and our homes are getting digital as ever! This has to be the next step in user innovation.

Music on the Moov

Music on the Moov

MoovBox is a portable synthesizer that aims to revolutionize music listening by introducing an active approach to mixing audio while on the move. Like the iconic Moog, the MoovBox makes it easy to modify notes- simply adjust any combination of  the 7 knobs by rolling or sliding. Better yet, users can compose or add layers of their favorite string, wind or percussion instrument by using natural gestures. Need some guitar? Use your fingers to play like a fret board! Horns? Key and blow like a trumpet!

Simple… and genius!

Be tangle-free until we're cable-free!

Be tangle-free until we’re cable-free!

Until we go completely wireless, earphone cords and mobile phone charging cables are must haves… which means tangles and knots aren’t going anywhere soon either. The Pop-up Cord Wrap aims to resolve the problem of cable management so they stay organized and tangle-free for easy access. The design contains 3 compartments for different sized cables. Made entirely of rubber, it pops up so cables can be coiled and pushes back to store them neatly. Whichever layer you need, just pop it out!
