Rethinking the Ruler

Rethinking the Ruler

Duplo might be a simplistic twist on the ruler but its basic redesign gives it much greater functionality! A sliding component makes it easy to draw predetermined line lengths in a flash. Just slide it to the desired position and go! It also makes it quick and easy to identify and save the length of measured objects without having to peer closely or line up. Just snap it on and slide it closed for perfect measurements each time!

Surphase is the ultimate in portable cooking! The multipurpose cooking appliance can be used to heat and cook or even to cool food.

A Shopping Assistant for Everyone

A Shopping Assistant for Everyone

The Overview device provides shoppers with an innovative, highly visual feedback experience capable of offering audio reviews on products purchased by other users. To activate, a shopper performs a simple “check-in” when entering a store. When a popular product or store area is approached, the pulse (represented by light and vibration) of the product begins to increase on the device. Users can then listen to a library of uploaded reviews to make a more informed decision before buying, or leave their own review for a product they’ve used.

Leather Goods for the Purist

Leather Goods for the Purist

Almost all leather goods are made by cutting with knives or die cut, then stitched or glued together, & finally embossed or imprinted with a name or logo. PACT leather cases are entirely different! Inspired by origami, architect Darrin Griechen has created a process whereby leather is cut into extremely precise patterns using computer-guided lasers, & then woven & folded together by hand. No thread, glue or hardware. This “unimaterial” construction method allows for pieces that are both strong & durable. With no other materials to wear out, they also age beautifully.

Taste Bud works like it sounds, but with even greater functionality! Working in tandem with a native smartphone app, its the ultimate kitchen assistant. It uses a combination of sensors to detect food temperature, freshness and preparedness. Tap into an egg to see if it’s safe, or check the internal temperature of meats to ensure they’re thoroughly cooked. Waterproof and heat-resistant, you can even leave it in cooking food mixtures to alert you when it’s ready!
