eCycle For A Greener World

eCycle For A Greener World

Packing in trendy, effective, effortless and easily maneuverability into an electric bicycle sounds like a distant dream. That is till you have a look at the eCycle, an electric bicycle that aims to make biking the obvious choice of transportation. The dynamic frame of the eCycle integrates battery and motor within a lightweight and flexible structure. Taking inspiration from retro motorcycles, the bike hosts a stylized fuel tank to mask a battery pack.

Kitsch Dress Your Camera

Kitsch Dress Your Camera

The Spectrum Camera Concept is high on the novelty quotient and very low on functionality. However if we keep our minds open, I see us using the idea of a customizable wrap-around flexible display in more innovative ways. Just the other day we heard of an Apple patent that employed a similar idea, where the display went wrap-around the phone. This can turn into something big, what do you think?

A Case with a Conscience

A Case with a Conscience

Besides being just plain cool, Coconut’s series of phone cases gives anyone who’s creative a chance to make the world a better place! Each design is crowdsourced from people around the globe, & each color represents a different cause. With each purchase a donation is made to that case’s respective charity. From planting trees in the heart of Kenya to treating HIV globally, buyers can show their support for their individual passions in a tangible object that gives back! Don’t miss the video on this great cause!

Synthetically Strong, Naturally Tough

Synthetically Strong, Naturally Tough

Ramus, latin for “tree branch,” is a sculptural piece that combines the strongest of man-made materials with the natural structural advantages of a tree’s branches. The carbon fiber, steel and Kevlar-reinforced base is virtually indestructible, yet has a misleadingly delicate aesthetic. In gloss or satin finishes, it’s a super chic addition to the modern office.

Hot Honda Hatch

Hot Honda Hatch

I love me a hatchback! More so if it’s electric and fast! Jex Chau’s Honda R-EV concept was designed with the already trending EV racing in mind. With sharp lines and abrupt angles, the 2-door makes perfect brand-sense for the evolution of Honda’s current aesthetic. It’s like a Fit on steroids!

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.

Well, this Smarty-pants iPhone case did! Did someone ask why? That’s because the smartphone case has a whistle integrated into it.

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!
