More Furniture for Bikes

Like the rest of the Furniture for Bikes series by Quarterre, these designs aren’t like the typical eyesore of a bike stand. Both draw on the tones & high quality materials of Cherchbi brand’s accessories collection. The exclusive ‘Fell Grey’ color & dark wood finish for the stands have been developed to complement the hand finished leather detailing, which incorporates Cherchbi’s signature Herdwyck Tweed & vegetable-tanned English saddle leather.

Evolution of the Jet Ski

Evolution of the Jet Ski

Recently pre-launched at the Monoco boat show, the Wesp is unlike any jet ski you’ve seen before. Inspired by Formula 1 racing, the craft is characterized by an unorthodox yet functional shape that allows it to cruise gently across the waves or switch into high speed racing mode. In an exhilarating twist, direction is controlled using a body motion steering system where the driver swivels from left to right, similar to how a motorcyclist flicks from side to side to initiate a turn.

Fed up with a tiresome train commute in his local Sydney, designer Richard Heath designed this modern city commuter, the BlueSkyBike. The electric assisted, folding design features a rear hub motor, angled folding mechanism for easy transportation and storage, a regenerative braking system for supplemented energy, and even smartphone linking capability that makes it possible to monitor energy systems and the bike’s security. Besides all that nifty tech, it’s just plain cute! Hit the jump for the video!

Five Reasons To Flash A Smile

Five Reasons To Flash A Smile

A camera is best described as a device that records images that can be stored directly and transmitted to another location, or both. We have seen it evolve through the years in both technology and in design. This brings to mind the question, what is the future of a camera in say about five to ten years from now. Will it be minimal or elaborate? One thing is for sure, the cameras of the future will be high on technology but their designing may get radically unconventional.

Wings of Steel

Wings of Steel

I love a design that makes you wonder, “what the heck am I looking at?!” Especially when it’s as pretty as this chair by Laurie Beckerman. The design is both fascinating and functional with a unique optical pattern that’s captivating from every angle. Though its aesthetic is light and delicate, the laser cut, black powder coated steel construction is super strong, perfect for indoor or outdoor use.

Handsfree Cooking!

Handsfree Cooking!

The Easystir is an automatic stirrer that allows you to pursue other work while it diligently looks after your dish. Foods like soups, broths and curries require constant stirring and I know for a fact that with some Indian cooking you need to keep on stirring for hours; yes HOURS! The stirring speed is adjustable, it is dishwasher safe and it doesn’t require recharging, battery replacements or plugging at all. It simply uses magnets that react to your induction stove!

Subscription Undies

Subscription Undies

I’ve been trying out this new service called MeUndies – a subscription based underwear delivery service. Let’s just assume you change your undies at least once a day. So unless you have 30+ pairs or constantly do laundry or supplement with a few days going commando (kinky), then you’re gonna need some more undies. Although the service does allow you to buy a la carte, you get 20% off per pair by subscribing. That’s $16 a month to get one pair of undies tailored to your style/color preferences shipped direct. But are they any good? Hit the jump.
