Fraud-proof Credit Card

Fraud-proof Credit Card

For every code there exists a hack and the Credit Card industry is not immune to money frauds either. To stay a step ahead in the game, many companies are opting for IC chip cards instead of the ‘easily-duplicated- magnetic cards’. Hidden Card is a concept that where the CPU, operation system, memory area, and security algorithm are built into the IC chip card, so it can be used for a variety of purposes.

Subtle Sensory Feedback Through Food

Subtle Sensory Feedback Through Food

The Double Contrast Glass, Jug, Hob Guard, Plate B, Mug, Cutlery and Chopping Board with Chopping Knife are all a part of the Leaven Range of Cutlery And Kitchen Tools for a person who is suffering from partial or full sight loss. Essentially the range is very interactive and with subtle hints and indentations is able to provide sensory feedback to the user. With the intention of making the dining experience more confident and fulfilling, I think designer Simon Kinneir has addressed and resolved quite a few key issues.

Conceptualized to work singly or in a set of three, Dreizehngrad’s Industrial  Collection combines sleekly shaped hand‐blown crystal glass with the classic warmth of turned oak wood. With lines that contribute to geometrically straightforward forms, t he collectionego uses on the merging of the two materials as an expression of the classic industrial pendant.

Room Division Done Right

Room Division Done Right

As urban living faces space challenges, this design team has a good solution to make most of the limited carpet area that your home may have. Cook&Bath is a clever construction and room division that allows you to make the most of the space restrictions. In a way, it eliminates an entire wall and uses a centralized bathroom-shower space as the room division. An interesting way to demark the kitchen, living and bedroom space!

Clever Office Supply

Clever Office Supply

The way children take to Toys R Us I take to stationery stores. Maybe this is why I am totally excited about the Comos, a compact and unique office supply tool. The ideal combination of a pen, a sharp pencil, a knife and a ruler that are magnetically held together! Comos relieves you of the need to carry an array of tools on the go; I like its simple design and the fact that the stationery is detachable, yet unified.

Clearly Cool

Clearly Cool

The Ghost watch earns its namesake for the completely clear material that composes the entire band. The flexible display reads the time in simple, minimal, dot-matrix style. Colorless and cool, it’s complimentary to almost any outfit. As for how it works… well, we’re not sure… no do we care as long as we can have one!

Fiber Logic

Fiber Logic

Proposed for NYC’s historical Battery Park, the ALIS bench serves as both commodity and art. Lightweight & durable, the ergonomic sections are constructed through the process of renewable resource plastic injection molding, common in the structuring of urban playground equipment. Using unique “fiber logic” reinforcement, ALIS efficiently redistributes external forces through its composite skin system. As night falls, each section illuminates from within to reveal a beautiful web of the fibrous internal strands.

A Flex Phone Would Be the Best Phone

A Flex Phone Would Be the Best Phone

The concept of smart-watches is hot right now, and even though there are a lot of designs floating around, none have kept us from thinking “yeah… but you still need a phone.” The Limbo, however, is quite different. It seems designer Jeabyun Yeon has discovered the missing link between our transition from handheld smartphones to smart-watches. Design-wise, the idea wasn’t to stray away from anything that might be remotely phone-like, but instead to merge the benefits of both. Why choose one when you can have both?!

Surgical Precision Light

Surgical Precision Light

This ergonomically designed Medlite is unlike any surgical headset on the market. Comfort is vital during a long surgery where fatigue can affect performance, so rather than an over the head adjustable strap with large knobs, this design takes two side supports & contours over & around the head for both support & stability while distributing weight over a larger area. Additionally, a co-molded foam liner & removable Velcro strap make for easy cleaning without the additional cracks & seams of most headsets.

Futuristic Faucet

Futuristic Faucet

Clean, modern, and simple, the Duo faucet strikes a balance between functionality and style with its interactive appeal and smart shape. The design forms a half-ring over the sink, allowing the water to flow in a circular fashion to the center or sides depending on the desired temperature. Built-in red and blue LED lights indicate the temperature, changing as the user moves the sliding rings to adjust the temp. 

Ergonomic eReader

Ergonomic eReader

While using an iPad to read an article, designer Chi-Tai Hsu started to notice finger pain and discomfort from the constant scrolling as well as eye fatigue from having to carefully stare at the text line while repositioning the paragraph to read more. Chi’s response to this problem is the “Reading Serenely” eReader with eInk display. Like reading a bound book, the design attempts to mimic the way in which we naturally flip from page to page with finger swipes happening less frequently.

Water Air and Ice

Water Air and Ice

I like to think of Coway as underdogs from the Far East. They have some of the most amazing consumer products that are top-notch in Industrial Design. Works like the A1(CHP-241N), CAIRS & ICE+WATER are very Rams’ styled; minimal and bespoke. With many accolades and awards under their belt, here is a look at some recent products that ring a bell.
