Headphones Inspired by YOU

Headphones Inspired by YOU

When we think of “biomimicry,” we usually expect an exotic, animal-inspired advancement… but let’s not forget the untapped resource we carry with us every day: our own amazing bodies!  The Canal Headphones are a perfect example of human-biomicry that utilize a series of interlocking and twisting canals that acoustically enhance music as it makes its way to the ears. Think of them as an extension of your own hearing system!

Sailing on Ice

Sailing on Ice

The Kaira ice boat is a system of functional frames joined together to work like a sailboat, only it relies on wind-power only to skate along the ice. A steel stave runs the length of the boat and supports the mast and a runner-plank on which it rests at right angles to form a kite-shape for stretching the canvas. It runs on three steel skates attached at the edges. A single driver manipulates the canvas with a rope netting to increase or decrease speed between an amazing 30 and 100 mph!
