Roll And Play Mouse

Roll And Play Mouse

Say hello to the Roll Instant Rechargeable Mouse. This slim guy can be charged by the laptop that you are working with and even when it’s being used. The charging is done via short-distance wireless charging as it uses wireless Bluetooth technology through resonant inductive coupling (electromagnetic induction) for wirelesses charging. That’s a lot of high-tech words for my simple mind; nevertheless you get the gist. This technology enables a slimmer mouse volume as there is no need for a large battery.

Straight From Chopping Board To The Fire

Straight From Chopping Board To The Fire

The Curling Pan is one heck of an innovation! Just imagine popping the cutting board onto the fire and get cooking right away! This means that the board is the pan. Crafted from shape-memory alloy, it transforms from a flat cutting board to a frying pan when it comes in contact with heat. The edges start to curl up after a certain temperature. This is because of the nature of the material with which it is made from: shape-memory alloy with a two-way memory effect.

Raúl Lázaro’s Giraffe Cup is proof that a small change in an otherwise classic design can go a loooong way to spark the imagination. The leggy design is both a cup and an art piece, sure to start conversations. Exotic enough to make a statement, but not so much that it looks like bad Tommy Bahama!

The stroller that grows up too...

The stroller that grows up too…

As baby grows up from being pushed in a stroller, to taking his first steps, to learning to pedal a tricycle, the Piv-O stroller is there every step of the way! The “polifunctional” design needs only be adjusted as your child transitions from stage to stage, meaning there’s no need to waste money on numerous devices. By the time he’s grown out of it, he’ll be totally prepared to lose the training wheels and ride a real bike!

Double The Warmth

Double The Warmth

Inspired by the Asian idea that the earth was square and heaven was round, the Double Warm Multi-functional and Energy-efficient Coal Stove was conceptualized. It is designed to have a water-storage volume surrounding the furnace so that you can boil water while you use the stove for cooking. This hot water can be used for bathing etc. Nice idea, especially since it is aimed for the energy-starved counties where resources are expensive and scarce.

Hot and Cold Waterfall

Hot and Cold Waterfall

We never get a chance to see how the hot and cold water blend together within the faucet, before it cascades out like a stream. The Pavati Tap builds upon this element, to showcase how beautifully the two streams of water can create drama whilst you wash your hands. A Y-shaped waterfall effect mixes the cold and hot water into a single mutual waterfall, for your viewing pleasure. Sweet!
