In A Flash

In A Flash

I love the structural design of the Condenser Flashlight, which is crafted from flexible materials. The reason behind this is to add flexibility, making it easy to grab the flashlight and even control the contours of the light beam. Simple physics and clever thinking!

Glossy Glow

Glossy Glow

The smooth form of the futuristic looking ‘Mona’ lamps by Lucie Koldova somehow reminds me of Eva from the movie Wall – E. Crafted for ‘Brokis’, in the designer’s signature style, the tinted glass pendant features sensual curves and an elegant presence. The lamp comes in two styles, pedestal and pendant. The pendant version is suspended using proportionately sized lanyards. The juxtaposition of metal and fabric against the glossy form of the lamp brings in a seductive appeal to the lighting system. Mona lamps dresses up your light in Haute Couture.

BMW R90R - A Classic Revived

BMW R90R – A Classic Revived

I have often felt that most of the present day motorcycles are over designed. The designers’ attempts at aggressive form language usually results in the rides ending up with a liberal dose of visual clutter and makes me crave to see the honest and clean design style of café racers back on the road. And exactly for this reason, transportation designer Kévin Biolluz’s reinterpretation of the iconic cafe racer BMW R90S on its 40th birthday is interesting.

Discovering tangible patterns and predicting future outcomes based on it has always enticed the collective imagination of humanity. From mapping of celestial movements to the weatherman’s forecast, this fascination for predicting the future has helped civilizations to make sense of the macro system that they are part of. The ‘Predictables’ project aims to bring this forecasting to a personal level.

There are too many “what if” questions in life and one of them is, what if Vespa came out with consumer good?

Pretty Flight For A Flight Guy

Pretty Flight For A Flight Guy

The Aerial filming and observation mini helicopter systems have ushered in an era of filming spectacular and dynamic visuals at an affordable budget. Also employed in risky operations such as inspection of high voltage electric lines and surveillance, they greatly help to minimize human casualties. However filming with the mini helicopters does come with some constraints. For one, it requires a skilled team of at least two persons working in tandem.

Articulate Beats

Articulate Beats

I completely connect with the Le Pen concept, where the designer has tried to marry a pen with a music player. I still recollect those glory days when I used to solve math equations to the beats of U2 and Police. Somehow music helped me zone in and focus on those numbers. I’m sure many of you like to work with something strumming in the background, Le Pen takes an innovative approach towards that.

Watch Me, Please!

Watch Me, Please!

It’s the current norm to have smart watches hook up with smartphones via Bluetooth, however they are limited by their display size. The Watch-Me has extended display up to 20mm x 140mm and with gyroscope sensor installation. The accompanying video explains how this concept works and I am sold on it. Can’t wait to get my hands on one of these babies and try them on….have a look….

Take Your Pills On Time

Take Your Pills On Time

The Pill Watch is an innovative way to ensure that you don’t forget to take your pills on time. It even has a small compartment to store the tablet. I suppose you can keep it as an emergency backup pill or the real deal. The watch is capable of measuring the pulse rate, which is a good add-on.
