The Night Gestures

The Night Gestures

The Night Communication is a solar empowered, LED silicone glove concept that allows people to communicate with gestures even in pitch darkness. Imagine yourself trekking in the woods and there is a considerable distance between you and the others in your party. In situations like this, using common gesture like how we use in scuba diving can help in communicating over the long distance.

When it Couldn't Get Easier...

When it Couldn’t Get Easier…

Especially compared to digital clocks, analog ones are easy enough to change when daylight savings time hits, right? WRONG- there’s always room for improvement! Proof- the Ambigu wall clock has a hanging element on the reverse side that’s very similar to standard designs but with one major difference: dual-positioned hook spaces that make it possible to easily rotate the clock one hour forward or backward in accordance with the time changes.

Everything but the TuTu

Everything but the TuTu

Who knew that with the introduction of gaming systems like Wii and XBox Kinect that the stereotype of lazy, couch-potato gamers would fade and be replaced with modern, home-fitness freaks?! This smart-app, called Pas de Ballet, is a great example of how interactive gaming systems can be used as supplemental training in a variety of sports and other physical activities. Using Kinect’s motion-sensing technology, it helps ambitious users perfect their skills even when a coach isn’t available. Check out the vid to see it in action!

Steaming Up Foul Language

Steaming Up Foul Language

It’s almost impossible to monitor the kind of abusive and foul language kids use in online chatrooms these days. So when the analogy of difference in temperatures steaming up a window was explored, designers Kim Hyerim, Chang Hanearl & Kim Junhoe came up with the Steamy Window application. The system basically auto-detects abusive and foul language used during chats and steams up the user’s display window.

Clustered Lighting

Clustered Lighting

Though at first glance it looks like a singular unit, the Square Bell hanging pendant is actually 5 lamps in 1. Smaller, pyramid-shaped shades surround a larger central shade, creating a functional cluster that is at once united and separate. The unique placement and angle of each individual shade casts expansive directional illumination, making it an ideal choice for lighting larger spaces.

Gigodesign’s Woodware series is the most modern & sleek use of natural wood in a utensil I’ve seen. The fork, spoon & spatula are easily kept handy with embedded magnets that can be attached to the wall mount or any other metal surface.

Dressing Up The MacBook

Dressing Up The MacBook

The thing with buying Apple products is that you can’t dress them up in just any old accessories. Whatever you use has to be of top-notch quality, befitting the Jobs legacy. For example, the new MacBook Pro with its shimmy new features deserves a sleeve from the Carga Sleeve Collection. Basically these hand-assembled sleeves are done in small batches using single-piece vegetable tanned leather. Elastic and leather closures add a dash of panache.
