Transfer Documents On The Go

Transfer Documents On The Go

U Transfer USB stick eliminates the need for using a computer as a medium to transfer information from one stick to another. It is equipped with a display that is hopefully a touchscreen, and has a slot at one end to hook up another stick. File transfers promise to be easy, and I can imagine myself using this stick at live blogging events.

Brilliant Bench Design

Brilliant Bench Design

Ever gone to the park and found someone else sitting on your favorite bench? Ever wished your bench was turned the other way because you like the other view better? This genius outdoor bench design offers a solution to both. Each bench system consists of 4 seats that can easily be tilted in the direction the user prefers, or to simply put a little space between you and strangers. Not to mention, its fantastic to look at!

City Cycle

City Cycle

The 100% electric Monobike might not look very “mono” at first glance, but at higher speeds the rear wheel lifts, balancing only on the front portion of the bike. The design, which is really more of a “dicycle,” aims to relieve the congested roads of urban streets by providing a slim yet speedy solution for getting around the city. Its miniature size and unique design make it possible to park in a vertical position, further reducing the amount of space it takes up.

Bike Locating Lock

Bike Locating Lock

Bless the person who devised remote controlled car keys; its a boon being able to locate your car in a crowded lot, thanks to the unique sound. Wish there was something similar for a cycle lock. Wait, there is! Yes, the Acoustic-optical Lock for cycles is designed on similar lines. This version features a lock system that has a radio transmitter in the key and a matched radio receiver in the lock. Simply press the button and the lock makes a sharp sound and switches on the LED light.

Lamptron!

Lamptron!

Does anyone remember Armatron?! Designer Otto Polefko’s COG lamp instantly reminded me of one of my favorite childhood toys. The quirky design has a similar robotic aesthetic that was inspired by the designer’s hometown of Miskolc, Hungary, which used to be an industrial center in the 80s. The lamp is a blend of former and modern style trends, and is as functional as it is fun!

Visualize the Time

Visualize the Time

I’m loving this creative clock design by Shen Yuebo! Let’s say you need to set an alarm- simply draw a mark at the exact time you need and the clock face will change colors to notify you! You can even make marks with different colors so you associate each alarm with a different hue!

Electro-Kart Action

Electro-Kart Action

Unlike the conventional (and totally passé) gasoline go-karts, the ACTO kart is entirely battery-powered, and of course, boasts zero emissions. Its strong, feather-light, monocoque body has a playful, formula one-like aesthetic that places the driver in the center for enhanced ergonomics, excitement, and protection. Clean and fun!

Get On the Awesome Train

Get On the Awesome Train

The Auto Train aims to provide a sustainable solution for traveling distances too long to drive by car but too short to fly by plane. The fully-automated system accommodates individual passengers and their vehicles. So that it doesn’t need to stop between destinations, a number of train sections are designed to easily merge and diverge from the track at specialized stations, allowing it to work like an automated taxi that automatically drops you off at your destination!

Look Ma, Robot On My Wrist

Look Ma, Robot On My Wrist

I guess we have Hollywood and the Japanese to blame for our perception of a robot. Most often seen as a human clone, can you imagine it to be a device around your wrist? Designer Julian Grote explains, “the focus of the research was not to explore the potential of technological intelligence, but rather to explore the limitations of human attention and emotional resilience.” This wrist robot has the sole task of managing its owner’s everyday life. Interesting!

Scooter in the Sea

Scooter in the Sea

Air Container Scooter is for deep-sea divers, to make their underwater ride smoother and enjoyable. With a heavy oxygen tank on the back and both hands occupied with the propeller, a pleasure dive can become quite tedious. Air Container integrates both the functions, giving the diver free hands to take pictures and explore the ocean with ease. Remote controls on the gloves make operations easy. I have only one deep-sea dive to my credit, but next one will definitely be with a scooter!

Tree-Inspired Train Station

Tree-Inspired Train Station

This winning underground train station proposal was inspired by a predominating staple of the Israeli landscape- the Ficus Microcarpa tree. To imitate the ambiance provided by the ficus in the outside world, the design allows plenty of natural light to fall on the trees planted in the underground station. In addition, features like the steel piping on the deck were designed to replicate the robust trunk that is a signature of the tree. Stepping foot in this station, you’ll feel like you never left outside.

Lighting Naturally

Lighting Naturally

When you live in the city, it’s easy to lose touch of some of mother nature’s simple offerings like a breeze or wild plant life. Keeping in mind how these things can inspire appreciation of nature, the designers at Pensa created this unique lighting solution that mimics the shape and sway of water reeds. Powered by the water’s current, the Light Reeds provide a subtle, romantic glow to public areas while offering a deeper connection to the waterfront.
