Senior Phones

With a name like “No hint will be lost on a kindred spirit”, you’d expect me to write a poem or an essay, but I’m actually going to write about an easy-to-use phone and communication system that is designed for the older generation. Besides being this really cool bracelet, the device monitors the health and mood of the wearer. It can be used as an effective communication tool that helps people stay in touch, and keep an eye on their health at one go.

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!

All of it oozes with sexiness and makes this a tempting offer. Hot the jump for more pics and drool-worthy specs.

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 Alchemist Matter kit teaches you how to create DIY matter through physicochemical phenomena. Mind blown?

Do-It-Yourself Oil

Do-It-Yourself Oil

For the choosy culinarian, the Daily Expeller offers an entirely new way of utilizing cooking oil- by manufacturing it yourself to your own requirements and tastes! In only 15 minutes, you can extract enough oil for 2 individual meals (100g ingredients for 20cc of oil) using any kind of nut or seed of your choice, including walnuts, peanuts, sesame or sunflower. Aesthetically, it’s a bit steampunk-ish, a bit scientific, and a whole lot beautiful. Watch it in action —>

Taking the Tech Out of Technology

Taking the Tech Out of Technology

In contrast to the current trend of high resolution imaging, the Ambient Display project relies on the quality of fuzziness! This effect is created through the combination of an ALUCOBOND media LED matrix with a Bencore aluminum honeycomb structure. With just 1000 large pixels, it bridges the digital and analog worlds. Less detailed and more subtle, the result is an artistic visual experience with a variety of application opportunities. Hit the jump to see how the designers put it to use!
