Measuring only 4 mm, The Edge is one of the thinnest titanium watches in the world. You would think that only big bulky watches can look sexy but The Edge Watch forces you to rethink that notion. This fully jeweled analogue quartz movement displays a slim stature of only 1.1 mm. A skeletal design, sapphire glass crystal encasing the purist dial and plain hands, create a subtle impact.

The E-Coil uses frequency waves and light without scent or fragrances to repel mosquitoes and keeping them at bay. The traditional coil leaves ash residue and may have an annoying scent. This new e-version releases frequency waves identical to the ones that male mosquitoes release when flying, and this wave apparently irks the female mosquitoes and keeps them away. Tell me about it!

This clever lamp design has a subtle vintage vibe thanks to its unique base composed of two clamps styled after classic clips of the past. Together, they hold and support the shade. To adjust the height and direction of the light, simply unclamp the shade and adjust!
Named after the 13th element that composes its unibody frame, the electric Bike 13 is both a feat of functional engineering and aesthetic integrity. Its hybrid engine is packed tightly within a robust yet lightweight, compact frame. Also built into the frame is a self-locking mechanism that freezes the rear wheel when parked to deter theft. It’s pure e-bike… nothing more and nothing less than what you need. Let’s crowdfund this thing cause I want one for Christmas!

The Plate Cooker is intended for busy working folks who can’t spend much time on cooking. It reflects a unique Korean culinary culture: preference for soup and rice as a breakfast, and cooking and freezing the food over weekends. This food is then heated and consumed over the upcoming week.

I am sure there is a very good reason for cell phones to have a rectangular battery. I’m not going to dispute the reason but instead present Ji Hye Park’s idea. The Tilt Battery is simply designed with a sharp slope on one end. This is so that it’s easy to load in the battery and removes all ambiguity of which ways to slide it in! Awesome!

Mórimo is a multi-sensory instrument which helps the “listener” experience music beyond hearing. The structure is covered with an elastic membrane connected to an amplifier and transducers around a wooden resonance chamber. The device can be attached to any instrument or other sound source. The input is converted into vibration which can be felt throughout the tactile surface!

Using DigitalHabit(s)’ gestural interface, this twist on the desktop speaker encourages user interaction by reacting to movements of the hand. Manufactured in concrete and fir harmonic board, the resulting sound has a deep resonance with enhanced bass tones. Pair your favorite Bluetooth device to stream music wirelessly and set the volume, change the song, or pause/start with a simple wave!
The I Fresh is a food scanner equipped with a camera that captures the barcode on the food packaging, just before you store it in the fridge or cupboard. It hooks up to the fridge like a fridge magnet and can store data like the date of purchase. The idea behind the device is to make sure you consume fresh food and don’t eat the spoilt.

The Wave Dry is an innovative concept that looks at drying clothes faster and in a cost-effective way. It basically is this solar device that can be charged via the windows of the house. The soaked up solar goodness is used to power the drying UV lights and hot air. Although it looks to be a bit bulky for now, I think a couple of refinements down the line, this idea can do some great good!
