HOLLA!

HOLLA!

Say hello to Holla. It’s a wearable smart-gadget that fits snug on your wrist! More compact than a cellphone yet larger than a watch, it has a full 2.2 inch touch display along with an integrated earpiece for taking calls and streaming music. It’s this attention to audio that sets it apart from other wearable devices which often only focus on the tactile and visual senses. Holla uses NFC, Bluetooth and WiFi for seamless connectivity to all your other devices, making data transfers fast and easy.

Calculator 2.0

Calculator 2.0

Take a look at the aesthetics and simplistic design.

A Transforming Twist on the Speaker

A Transforming Twist on the Speaker

Twist is the portable speaker that functions exactly as you might imagine- with a twist! In the off position, it appears a smooth, simple cube, but turn it on and 2 corner layers twist around to reveal hi-def outputs. Keeping with the stark aesthetic, the subwoofer is also hidden on the underside. The transforming design not only puts the fun in functionality but protects the sensitive speaker components when not in use!

3D GPS for the Blind

3D GPS for the Blind

Discover is a handheld navigation tool designed for the blind that goes beyond the limitations of Braille maps, allowing users to “feel” their surroundings. Using pin-screen impression technology (similar to that of pin-art toys popularized in the 1980s), the user can touch the immediate topography to gauge everything from buildings to cars and other objects around them. GPS, tactile 3D maps and location tagging make it the ultimate nav for those who can’t rely on sight.

Together at Last!

Together at Last!

There’s nothing worse than an awkwardly quiet dinner! On that note, there’s nothing that will kill the aesthetic vibe of a room quicker than ugly electronics. As you might have guessed from the name, the Soundlight is the answer to these woes! It provides both ambient light and music by using a slim 360 degree speaker built directly in to the shell of the minimal pendant. Seamless and effective, it’s the perfect way to subtly set the mood for dinner!

Cooking Starts In The Garden

Cooking Starts In The Garden

It would be so easy to have your own vegetable patch to source fresh veggies and herbs from. There are two main obstacles though: lack of space and lack of a green thumb. To solve these two issues we have here the “Little Helper’ a cultivation pot with a combining app. The idea behind it is to help us grow and harvest our own vegetables and eat healthier (think GMO and Pesticides). I quite agree!

Customer Service Goes 3D

Customer Service Goes 3D

Grrrr.. there’s nothing more annoying than calling a customer service number only to wait on hold before being transferred to a robot that can barely understand you! Despite the reason, getting face-to-face help is the most effective and least frustrating way to get results . That’s the idea behind iContact.io. Designed as a directory for public places like malls and hospitals, the informational kiosk provides an on-demand, 3D experience with a REAL customer service rep. Features like eye-contact recognition and an intuitive touch screen make it natural and even kinda fun!
