Looks cool too!

Robotic Clean

Robotic Clean

The one place I’d like to see robots do their thing is in the domestic space. The Mab is a concept in this direction and looks at giving home space a robotic clean look. Essentially it is an automated cleaning system consisting of hundreds of flying mini-robots which will clean all surfaces. Mab scans and custom cleans an area according to its requirements.

Carbon Creature Stool

Carbon Creature Stool

The Red Dot Award winning Plum Stool’s swift, aerodynamic form emulates natural, organic style in modern carbon material. Though delicate looking, the logical structural geometry and material quality together make it not only strong but incredibly light. To highlight this, the design’s name is a derivative of the Spanish word “pluma” which means “feather.”

The Sports Car of SUVs

The Sports Car of SUVs

Now here’s a crossover we can get behind! The Audi concept sports a sleek yet muscular physique in proper SUV proportions. But with its short rake, lower height and shorter length, it’s designed to tackle urban traffic more than grapple the off-road. It would be a shame, after all, to muddy such a posh interior.

This pen sucks...

This pen sucks…

Literally! It suctions onto any surface to keep your designer 316 Liner pen handy. Its sucker is both the base for keeping it upright and the cap for protecting the tip – so both parts are easy to keep together. I always forget how useful rubber-suckers truly are (even if they feel a bit 1991!).
