What Did Your Pet See Today?

What Did Your Pet See Today?

Did your cat chase a mouse or a sparrow, did the doggy pee on your car tire or was it the tabby that scratched your new linen sofa? To answer these and many more questions we have the Pet’s View concept. It’s not entirely a new idea for a pet’s perspective camera, however I like it for plug and play USB integration. It will be interesting to monitor and catalogue what your pet has been up to all day (or night) especially when its gone forever…. leaving behind just these truth-tapes.

Water Purifying Bridge

Water Purifying Bridge

This bridge proposal for the Amsterdam canals follows the form of a water vortex, pumping dirty canal water through steel tubes while creating a current to replace it with fresh water while also easing the cleanup process of the current boat system. The bridge also acts as a sanctuary for birds attracted to the clean water and even features a coffee shop for the many cyclists and pedestrians who would cross every day.

Cook, Chop, Clean and Serve from a Table

Cook, Chop, Clean and Serve from a Table

The kitchen in the future, say 2025, is not going to be more than a table! This is what most designers and even Electrolux predicts. Future Cook is an interactive unit that doubles up as a prep area, induction cook top with integrated food processor and a washing area. Using existing technologies, it will be possible to add quirky features like nutritional information of the food being cooked and electronic recipes, to the workstation. The idea is to be a ‘smart counter’ for folks who don’t have the luxury of time to cook. Interesting!

It’s All About Being On Facebook

It’s All About Being On Facebook

Monday morning and I’m sharp with a cup full of freshly brewed coffee, crisp toast and a farm-fresh Facebook Phone! Pardon me, but the Blue Experience is utterly fascinating and an odyssey of newly developed Facebook Apps that work beautifully on a dedicated FB phone. Love the instant Instagram button and minimal tech-specs. Enclosed in a blue saturated aluminum casing (17.5 cm x 5.5cm) and designed in as a wedge, the display is easily viewable even when the phone is flat on a table.

The Piano is a super sexy desktop lamp crafted out of black metal and warm bright wood. It has a unique way of closing and stowing and was evidently inspired by the piano. To close the lamp, simply rotate the three elements and present it as a flat table decoration. Yes, it does resemble the ebony and ivory when closed!

Big Car for Chinatown

Big Car for Chinatown

The Taihoo 2046 Concept Car is intended for the 18-35 year old young couples in China, apparently the big spenders and lovers of all things flashy! Taihoo`s styling is inspired by the Taihu Stone, which is also a porous stone. Essentially combining the porous and transparent features into a super sexy design, has worked out pretty well for this car. One of the super cool features is that the interior design can easily transform to a camping tent and the windows are slightly curved so that you can project movies onto it. What fun!
