Multifunctional City Sweeper

Multifunctional City Sweeper

The project was born from the idea of combining the different functions of various municipal vehicles into one multifunctional machine. At once, it’s a street cleaner/sweeper, garbage truck, and even a snow plow during the winter. It’s both an economical and space-saving solution for already crowded cities. If it means less noise from multiple trucks I’m all for it!

Polar Bear in your Freezer

Polar Bear in your Freezer

This clever ice cube tray takes the form of everyone’s favorite arctic animal- the polar bear! Simply fill it like a water bottle and throw it in the freezer. Because it’s sealed, it prevents the ice from absorbing the odors of your fridge or particles from other food items. You don’t even have to touch the cubes to remove- just bang it on the counter to loosen the cubes and they’ll fall right out.

Hoo Whistled?

Hoo Whistled?

Well, this Smarty-pants iPhone case did! Did someone ask why? That’s because the smartphone case has a whistle integrated into it. What if you are in an emergency situation or need to signal to a friend across the street or help prevent crimes in a dangerous situation? Don’t call a superhero…. simply use the Hoo Whistle Case and save the day!

Tear And Share USB

Tear And Share USB

I love the fun and interactive element given to the GIGS.2.GO, which is a credit-card-sized pack of USB flash drives, with “Tear – and – Share” technology. You just need to tear off a tab and take the handy USB Drive on the go with you! Crafted essentially from 100% post-consumer molded paper pulp, this economical, credit-card-sized data pack is fantastic!

Audi Saloon of the Sea

Audi Saloon of the Sea

Designer Ramazan Kaya’s latest yacht concept exudes style, luxury and comfortable recreation, taking design cues from a car brand known for its subtle sophistication and technological innovation. The Audi yacht maintains a handsomely sculpted body, symmetry and minimal detail, but it’s the signature silver and racing red accents that hint to its S-line inspiration.

Star Gazing Table

Star Gazing Table

The Nebula table is created from a combination of polygons that play with the viewer’s perspective, making the facade an interactive sculpture of sorts. Depending on the angle from which it is viewed, the glossy black surface also gives a subtle, clouded reflection of surrounding colors that resembles an interstellar cloud. Composed of fiberglass, it’s a sexy accessory inside or out.

Simpler isn't always better!

Simpler isn’t always better!

It was just a few days ago that I was in the midst of adding parmesan to my homemade pasta when I started pondering the old-fashioned grater that I was using. I was thinking, “this thing is so simple, yet so uncomfortable and hard to clean.” I wondered if it could be made better by simplifying it further. Needless to say, I never came up with a solution. BUT, looking at the Satellite Grater here, I now realize the answer wasn’t to simplify, it was to enhance! Check it out!

Sustainable Cleaning Bot

Sustainable Cleaning Bot

Move over Roomba! Limbo Robot is sort of like your own personal Mars-rover… only instead of being plutonium powered, it actually harnesses the energy of the waste it “consumes” from cleaning your kitchen and other areas! It uses a process called microbial electrolysis; a proven process that uses bacteria as a power source. The flexible honeycomb wheels allow it to move over obstacles and even collapse to help guide it up stairs.
