Playful Bakeware

Playful Bakeware

The Flexy series of cake pans offer a unique twist on the generic round and square bakeware you can find in any grocery store. Mold each one to your liking for a more personal touch that will stand out from the rest. Designer Simon Michel states that the bakeware is composed of food-safe plastic, but that might need a lil tweaking considering the material’s low melting point. Other than that, it’s an interesting idea for designer-cooking at home!

Power strip makes all directions possible

Power strip makes all directions possible

The power strip design you’re about to witness allows you to plug in from any direction and at any point along the length of it. Designer Hung Wang created a design here that allows Live / Neutral-wire slots to sit next to one another no matter which of the four directions you plug in from. This power strip goes by the name of “CROSS” and without a doubt aims to keep all manner of electronics in energy in as versatile a manner as possible.

The Magnetic Draw

The Magnetic Draw

I have always been a fan of fridge magnets; it is one of the sleekest ways to stay in touch with family via notes and even be in the loop with latest family happenings.

Let’s get started…

Green USB power pack from the wall

Green USB power pack from the wall

It’s time for another new angle on the USB power-packing accessory universe, this time with one that stays in the wall socket and conserves energy. You plug this little nubbin in to the power socket, wait for it to pop up like a turkey, and grab some power. This accessory stops taking power from the socket once it’s charged up, allowing that power then to filter through its two USB ports to your smart devices.

Citroen on Time

Citroen on Time

Following the trend of automotive-inspired timepieces, the DS watch takes from the modern design language of Citroen’s huge, luxurious hatchback concept, the DS N9. With remarkable attention to detail, the watch features a similar dramatic silhouette with the same elegant, forward-pointing double chevron that’s continuously been a mark of the French brand. It’s just subtle enough that even non-Citroen drivers will appreciate it.

iPhone touchkeys become real

iPhone touchkeys become real

Designer Moon Myounghak has made a lovely effort in a very real way (conceptual on the verge of reality) in creating a case that allows the iPhone to become a touchkey phone. WIth the keys this case creates for the iPhone, you’ve got a very physical set of keys accented by a touchscreen that contains five icons across. In other words, this wouldn’t be allowed by Apple as it stands here, but with a hacked iPhone you’d have gold.

Green Thumbs Up

Green Thumbs Up

Pod is a thoughtful indoor gardening system that expands on the trend of growing herbs and veggies in smaller, urban dwellings by making it easier than ever to share and trade produce with friends and neighbors – literally cultivating a sense of community! The plug-and-play system automatically disperses nutrients and H20 in the form of fog rather than liquid, making it cleaner and easier to care for. The modular pods are perfect for trading with friends or creating a custom gift that you’ve grown yourself. See how it works!

Innovative Food Storage

Innovative Food Storage

The Pyrex brand has steadied itself as a leader in food storage, and the designers at Streng have developed the latest addition to the line to build on that heritage with a series of colorful and functional containers. The No-Leak Clear series is nothing short of innovative, featuring a new steam-release mechanism that allows the user to release steam without removing the lid entirely. It’s easier than ever to reduce pressure and cool food items without warping the container.

Googly Eyed Watch

Googly Eyed Watch

Silly really is the best way to describe this adorable timepiece by designer Mathilde Ampe! The clever SoH (Second of Happiness) watch has two separate axis for hours and minutes that resemble a couple of googly eyes. The face was designed to be easily interchangeable, allowing users to personalize the look of their watch. As time ticks by, the expression changes from cross-eyed, to bored, to mischievous. Wear it long enough and you’ll soon associate the time of day with the looks your watch is giving you!

Laser beams keeping crosswalks safe

Laser beams keeping crosswalks safe

There’s a lot to be said about taking a perfectly simple aesthetic gesture and turning it into a guide for the public. In this case it’s a couple of laser beams stopping humans or vehicles from crossing paths at the same time. This design by HOJOON Lim goes by the name Guardian and will bring a perfect stop to a crash that could have been near you.

The Keyboards And Coasters Story

The Keyboards And Coasters Story

The first thing that I added to my workstation, when I became a serious online writer, was a set of coasters. Coffee mugs, water bottle and last minute sandwich plates have a knack of leaving a stain and messing up a perfectly clean table-top. Hence to maintain the sanctity of my sacred space, a coaster became a must. If you are as finicky about keeping your desk as spotless as me, then the Keyboard Coasters is a quirky solution that I recommend. Perhaps it’s that geek-quotient of keyboard design that is striking, nevertheless, it’s worth a try.
