The Half & Quarter Trick

The Half & Quarter Trick

For some unexplainable reason, measurements for stuff (products, clothes, tables etc.) end up being in quarter or half-inches. They seldom are rounded off to the nearest whole number, which is why accuracy in measuring is of prime importance. The Half & Quarter tape highlights the 1/2 and 1/4 measurements via an intuitive LED strip in the tape interface. It just makes life easy for fashion designers, professional carpenters, product designers, engineers and architects.

Emergency Moto

Emergency Moto

While highly effective, the vast majority of emergency vehicles like firetrucks and ambulances are so large that they’re limited in the places they can go. For these hard to reach areas, there’s the Angell Unit. Meant to be supplemental to the arsenal of emergency vehicles, it’s loaded with a variety of firefighting and medical tools to provide fast reconnaissance and preliminary support, especially in isolated areas. As an added bonus, it looks badass!

A Wino’s Wet Dream!

Introducing, Vinaera – the world’s first electronic wine and spirit aerator! You need only insert the aerator into the bottle, press the top button and voila! It will dispense fully aerated red wine. In seconds you can enjoy the complex aromas, full flavors and rich textures with a smooth, less acid finish in 30-40 minutes faster than a glass decanter. For spirits, the oxidation through large surface exposure to bubbles releases fused alchohols, making them less spicy and bitter. See it in action —>

Bathroom Cube

Bathroom Cube

The Q-Compact Toilet could very well become the synonym of compact. It’s essentially a cube that fits in everything – washbasin, toilet, water storage tank, shower – the works! The washbasin’s faucet doubles up as a retractable shower and can be used in such a way that you can take a head-shower without having to take a full-body bath. Why? Well some women like to wash their hair in the sink, so this is for them!

Drones are all over the news, but not often for good reasons. It’s a bad wrap!

One Remote Rules Them All

And it’s not your wife! It is the Holme! A culmination of all the pros of a remote control and a Smartphone, the device eliminates all the cons seen individually. For example the remote is more specific and does not host WiFi while the Smartphone is very intuitive has Internet connectivity and Bluetooth. As the designer puts it, we are in a digital era and our homes are getting digital as ever! This has to be the next step in user innovation.

Dust-light-buster For Oliver Twist

Dust-light-buster For Oliver Twist

Love the idea of this Lighting-up illuminated broom; it lends an edgy streak to the Harry Potter brooms that we have grown used to. With a clever twist, the bristles of the broom light up and make it easier to clean dark corners. An excellent way to motivate yourself to spring cleaning!
