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!

DO let your eyes deceive you!

Move around the Eye+ window and you’ll soon forget that it’s not a window at all! 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!

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.

Very Intuitive Camera

Very Intuitive Camera

CMY(si-mee) is a very intuitive camera with simple functions. Pulling it out of its protective case means turning it on; pushing it back in – yes, turning it off! If you need to zoom, then simply twist the crank on the side. Rotating it outward means zooming out, while inward means zooming in. The only button on this camera is the shutter, just push it down to take a picture or swivel to a desired duration, like a kitchen timer, to take a self-timed photo. Remind us of the Polaroid days, the camera comes with a self-printer.
