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.

DO let your eyes deceive you!

The clever screen doesn’t just display favorite outdoor landscapes, but also uses a camera and sensor system that detect the viewer’s motion to shift the image depending on their perspective. Move to the right to see what’s hidden behind the left border or move closer to enlarge the image and vice versa! See it in action —>

Loader Facelift!

Loader Facelift!

While wheel-dozers and loaders most often function on flat ground, there are times when more rugged terrain must be tackled to get the job done. To ease working on uneven land, the Arm Loader features a driver’s cabin positioned on a moving arm that keeps the operator elevated and balanced even when the machine is not. This provides workers a safer, less tiresome position with a better view of obstructions that would otherwise not be visible depending on the machine’s angle. Check out the vid for the 360!

Optical Heartbeat For Better Diagnosis

Optical Heartbeat For Better Diagnosis

The Optical Stethoscope is a nifty piece of technology that acts as assistive device for doctors. Through graphic representation on its knob, it shows doctors the heartbeat, or stomach fluid sounds in waveforms. Basic info like heart rate and pulse is displayed for faster comprehension. The basic idea behind the concept is to aid doctors in making faster and accurate diagnosis.

Save Water Simply

Save Water Simply

We commonly overlook the fact that the water we use to clean dishes, flush the toilet, or water plants is the same quality of what we drink! It’s not only unnecessary, but wasteful when we use new fresh water rather than reuse it for multiple purposes. The DuO sink system aims to solve this problem in the kitchen with a simple dual-reservoir design that separates reusable water from sewage. The saved water can then be used to water plants or assist in the dish-washing cycle.
