What SaY?

What SaY?

The SaY mobile phone was designed quite a while back but somehow the design looks still fresh and in sync with today’s needs. Right from the colors to the angles, the use of a rubberized body in contrasted with a slightly angled glossy keypad that fits perfectly in the talking position; everything is relevant to date. The camera and a pair of stereo speakers are arranged in a graphical and eye-catching fashion. Strikingly modern, yet rustic!

How's the air up there?

How’s the air up there?

Aerio is a nifty gadget that aims to provide users with information about their environment’s air pollution. Paired with the user’s smartphone, the device transmits data to a central network with other devices also giving real-time air quality updates. More than just a sensor, it also brings awareness to the user’s own individual carbon footprint in hopes of encouraging eco-conscious behavior throughout the day.

The Less is More Phone

The Less is More Phone

While the majority of modern smartphones focus on more, more, more to increase productivity, the CELs phone was developed from the belief that less distraction and “uni-tasking” rather than multitasking is the key to being productive. It focuses on just 4 basic functionalities: music, photography, fitness, and communication. What it lacks in apps (even internet!), it makes up for in a cool, quirky aesthetic and a straightforward, user-friendly interface!

Easy Sketchbook

Easy Sketchbook

The Easy Sketch is a transparent drawing pad, which allows you to trace and sketch views during your outdoor trip. You don’t need to be the best of artists but just have the knack of thinking imaginatively. The pad is capable of combining different views into one painting, and incorporates color and brushworks. A good and engaging alternative to the digicam!

Just like the name suggests, the Easy-to-View Compass makes reading the radius of circles or arcs in technical drawings a cinch.

It’s not only more accurate, but decreases fatigue by eliminating the needs to constantly readjust and monitor the setting.

Solo Laundromat

Solo Laundromat

The SOLO is a unified laundry system for single folks. Besides being compact and wall mounted, the system cleans, irons, de-stains and refreshes clothes using modern technologies. For a better part it works on the water-less washing system by employing UV lights etc. I love it for its futuristic clean sweep style and ‘shirt-shower’ function!
