The Invisible Umbrella

The Invisible Umbrella

SRSLY! You won’t find any delicate nylon material to rip, or flimsy metal rods that’ll break… in fact, no canopy at all! Instead, this innovative design uses air flow to protect the user from rain. Call the Air Umbrella, it creates an invisible shield with multidirectional air-jets that dispel raindrops and keep the user dry. Though it looks high-tech, it’s actually quite simple. Better yet, it might just be available sooner than you think. Jump to the vid!

Little LEGO Windmills

Little LEGO Windmills

Inspired by the building blocks and modularity of LEGOs, the Windflock is a wind-energy system that is flexible. The ‘add-on’ system is made of mini windmills and can be hooked up with each other. The cool quotient is upped by the fact that when connected, the mini windmills resemble a 3D crystal composition.

The Barely-There Brush Mouse

The Barely-There Brush Mouse

The innovative Brush Mouse is a clever twist on the classic smooth-top peripheral device. Unlike the continuous surface of the regular mouse, the pegged design keeps hands from getting sticky and hot. The ergonomic solution also prevents hand fatigue by distributing pressure evenly and giving the hand a mini-massage as it moves! With less material, it’s also thinner, lighter and easier to keep clean. See both prototypes in action after the jump —>

The Power Of A Fan!

The Self-Generator is an amazing ceiling fan concept that can preserve the mechanical energy after the fan has been powered-off. The system uses electromagnetic induction and the remainder mechanical energy is converted into electricity and saved in the capacitor. This reserved energy can be used for next time.

Keeping your Identity Safe

Keeping your Identity Safe

Just the other day a friend of mine had her accounts hacked and meddled with. She not only lost her bank details and personal details to the hacker, she also had to go through the trauma of someone stealing her online ID. Offline ID Cards can also be compromised, which is why an additional layer of security has become a necessity we must implement. The Safe ID comes with fingerprint recognition and divulges the details only once the rightful owner uses it. Clever!
