For The Love Of Drumming

For The Love Of Drumming

Ever caught yourself doing the air-drums in the middle of a song? Van Halen and WWRY get me to do that all the time. Well, the option of using a portable instrument like the Y-Drum is a good one, especially when it works out good for beginners. It is a mobile, accessible and easy to use; making the percussion practice even more fun.

Schproket Lights

Schproket Lights

The very cool named ‘Schproket Light’ is clearly inspired by mechanics. The lighting system employs a low voltage, safe socket create this magical circle of incandescent light points. Basically designer Christopher Moulder wanted to experiment with a lighting piece that would use no wires or sockets, so he started experimenting with low voltage bulbs. Hence Schprokets are lit with high efficiency Xenon long life bulbs.

The Cooking Expertise Of Chef Brown

The Cooking Expertise Of Chef Brown

Chef Brown is an adorable chef sitting on your kitchen counter. Hooked up to the Internet, the chef is a hub that searches for recipes from both pre-installed data and the web. The interactive device is good to the beginners and children and keeps track on the steps and timings indicated in the recipe. If you need it to narrate the recipe instead, it will do that too. How accommodating!

Custom-Capacity Bag

Custom-Capacity Bag

This versatile utility bag, called Shirrley, is composed of just one piece of mesh fabric and a single string. It’s deceivingly strong and the flexible nature of the material accommodates a variety of objects. When fully collapsed, it looks like a shirred handbag but when stretched it becomes a full-size grocery bag. The space-saving design can be crumpled and easily stored in the car, closet, or another bag.

Time-telling Trickster

Time-telling Trickster

Gotta wuv this clever clock! Using an Arduino Uno light and distance sensor embedded in a vintage clock, Wallace plays with the viewer’s perception by gradually slowing down as they approach it. When they walk away it speeds back up to return to the correct time. It will take a minute before you realize you aren’t trippin! An excellent conversation starter. Watch the vid to see how it works!

Lighting Gone Linear

Lighting Gone Linear

The Polyline Desk Lamp replaces the mechanical & visual complexity of traditional task lights with the versatility of a linear LED strip & a simple, minimal aesthetic. The linear form produces strong but diffused light for desk or table work, but can be activated in portions to provide localized lighting for specific tasks. Instead of bulky, expensive, & failure-susceptible mechanical joints, it has a fluid, almost seamless form with maximum rigidity and minimal part lines.

KIT and DIY

KIT and DIY

The K-I-T or Keep-It-Together Chair is a thoughtful DIY design that’s as comfortable as it is easy to put together. Composed primarily of MDF panels, the shell is held together by velcro strips, giving the chair some flexibility and wiggle room. Optimized for reading, the shape allows the seated person to rest their elbows on the armrests, making it possible to read comfortably for a longer period of time.

The Blue Leaf Water

The Blue Leaf Water

Watering is an innovative water purifier intended for singles. It can be wall mounted and features a blue leaf that indicates the number of glasses you have consumed during the day. It is recommended that we consume at least 8 to 10 glasses of water a day, so with each rotation, the blue leaf keeps a track of the number glasses consumed. You can customize the temperature and other features to suit your needs. I like it more for the fact that it integrates so well as a funky wall art décor!

Stunning Achromatic Studio

Stunning Achromatic Studio

This modern studio is all about openness and transparency from one section to the next- so much so that anyone with privacy issues might find themselves feeling vulnerable. Corner to corner, the viewer’s perspective shifts from light to dark, inside to out. The minimal aesthetic is contrasted by dark grey tones and raw textures of concrete, wood, marble and steel. A single colorful object, designer Igor Sirotov’s signature rubber duck, is hiding somewhere – see if you can find it.

Mouth-Watering Bugatti

Mouth-Watering Bugatti

The Bugatti Gangloff is like the chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream frosting of the luxury supercar world… self indulgent…  decadent… sexy… sinful. It was inspired not by late models like the Veyron or the mighty Galibier, but rather one of the classics of the brand: the 1930s Gangloff S57. What’s under the hood? Who cares… it’s much too pretty to drive anyway.
