Trio Power

Trio Power

The Trio charging station is a great way to start the accessory trend for the first ever Apple Watch! Between your phone, watch, & other devices, your charging situation probably needs a clean up… so Trio is here to help. Rather than set your precious on a surface where it could be scratched, it has an alternative inductive charging stand that keeps your device safely elevated. It also contains 2 additional USB charging ports for your phone, iPad, or computer. Perfect for the bedside stand, it also has an integrated OLED light for seeing in the dark.

The Bend is Back

The Bend is Back

Only, it’s the other way! First it was bubbles, then flat, & now curved screens like the Secret Illusion V.2. Aesthetically, this particular design is architecturally-inspired for a better blend to interiors with its subtle bend & less obtrusive, near seamless base. Experientially, it offers an enhanced audio/visual experience that aims to replicate the way our rounded eyes naturally view the world around us with peripheral vision. This includes greater edge sharpness, a wider field of view & increased depth for a truly immersive home entertainment experience.

Universal Lost and Found

Universal Lost and Found

Whether you’ve been the loser or the finder, you’ll appreciate this clever community-driven system for giving/retrieving lost things! Called #LostFound, the system utilizes 3D printing & social media to connect people with misplaced items. Attention-grabbing red hooks attach to fixtures in urban settings. When you come across a lost item, just hang it on the nearest one & post with a picture and location on Twitter or Instagram with the appropriate hashtag. The owner can then check social media by searching #LostFound to retrieve their stuff!

Swiss Cross Speaker

Swiss Cross Speaker

The SV/BS Swissvoice Bluetooth Speaker delivers great sound in a unique form factor that channels SV’s sporty identity. Precise bass response, upward and outward facing drivers, and detailed mid-to-high range sounds make it a top tier choice for steaming tunes. Unlike most small Bluetooth speakers, it’s equipped with dual screens: one that displays the time, and another that makes it easy for users to navigate their music library even when they’re not near the streaming phone, tablet or other device.

3D Printer Reversed

3D Printer Reversed

3D printing is a pretty effective way to prototype and test out products. To scale any mass production of items kinda turns out expensive because of the high cost of raw materials. To make the whole operation a lot more cost effective, we have here the 3D-Reprinter, a machine that recycles plastic into the raw material for printing. So imagine using a plastic soda bottle as the source of your new 3D Printing project! So very wild!

Tube Amp Meets Tablet

Tube Amp Meets Tablet

Låmpion is a hybrid tube amplifier and dock designed for audiophiles who want to use their smart devices, including tablets and smartphones, without losing connectability to their other high-end audio equipment.

Definitely a man cave must-have!

Every Car is a Stoplight

Every Car is a Stoplight

The addition of brake lights to vehicles & stoplights to intersections are two major life-saving standards, but still some problems exist when drivers are following large buses or trucks that block traffic signals. This design, simply called the Signal License Plate, combines the functionality of both to give heightened awareness to drivers approaching from behind. As an additional layer of safety, the plates work in tandem with signals to not only display the current red/yellow/green light, but count down to give drivers preparedness for changing conditions.

A Smart Moov

A Smart Moov

The announcement of the Apple Watch has turned into a game changer for the industry. Tim Cook’s incessant speech about fitness and its integration into the wearable device have put many of the seasoned players into a tizzy. At this juncture, fitness smart watch concepts like the MOOV Smart Watch, which target the less aggressive population, can serve as a comic relief.

A Different Desk from the Rest

A Different Desk from the Rest

Soundbox is a one-of-a-kind design that stands out both aesthetically and functionally! At the heart of this whimsical desk is an integrated old-school amplification system that captures audio from a recessed smartphone dock built-in to its surface. Odd, but oh-so cool! An eccentric blend of materials including mesh and polished metalwork mixed with patchwork wood are a perfect compliment to its overall unconventionality.

Sodavalve: The Hand-Saver

Sodavalve: The Hand-Saver

Designer Injoon Yang has grandma to thank for this clever gadget! After noticing her struggling near the refrigerator, he realized she was having difficulty opening a bottle of soda and took it as an opportunity to design a universal replacement cap that users can keep at home. Similar in shape and function to a spigot, simply replace the regular cap with one of two ergonomic handle designs for easy twisting on and off! Vid after the jump —>
