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 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

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 —>

If James Bond Wore a Smartwatch

If James Bond Wore a Smartwatch

Most smartwatch designs are focused around ultra-minimal, even futuristic styling with either a monocoque band or simplistic rubber strap and square interface… but that look isn’t for everyone! The HTC Omni stands alone as the smartwatch for users who don’t want to sacrifice classic watch style for smart technology. The design features a traditional metal linked band in gold, silver or black and an elongated interface that almost looks like it was simply dropped into an existing formal watch face. It’s digital tech gone dapper!
