Wooden Weight Calculator

Wooden Weight Calculator

As a person who has had to battle the bulge for eons, I am scared of standing on this Bamboo + Scale! It looks precarious yet innovative. I mean, no more investing in those pencil cells for power or calibrating the weight springs, but the thought of breaking the bamboo platform will always haunt me!

Tickle-me Socks And Wakeup Call

Tickle-me Socks And Wakeup Call

The ACUWAKE is a pair of socks that buzzes you awake in a gentle fashion. Essentially the socks come fitted with micro vibrators, which massage your feet at the acupressure points resulting into a healthy heart, strong spine and an efficient intestine. There is an Acuwake mobile app that can activate the socks from a million miles away. I’d totally use it to play pranks rather than as a wakeup call!

Triple the Fun

Triple the Fun

Named after the very feeling riders get on their bikes in the first place, the Keeway Euphoria 1130 is a concept motorcycle that sports a versatile (and trendy) triple cylinder engine that’s as comfortable commuting as it is twisting the canyons. As for aesthetics, it’s birdlike and scantily clad in geometric fairings so that it falls somewhere between naked-style and full-fairing… and that combined with a triple seem to put it in a sweet spot where it’s sure to win the admiration of riders from both styles.

For the serious slacker...

For the serious slacker…

…but not the type you might think! It’s the overnight fad that’s as frustrating as it is fun! It’s a sport called “slacklining” and it defies gravity and belief. Whether you’re bonkers for balancing or crazy about strengthening your core, the Redtail Slackline Kit is your key to slacklining whenever, wherever. One nylon line, a wood and metal ratchet, tree-saving pads and one carry all are all you need to turn your favorite garden, backyard or park into an awesome balance course.

Easy Home Heating

Easy Home Heating

Mirage is anything but unreal. It’s a well-rounded approach to home heating design, and not just in the visual sense! The system aims to replace current inefficient central heating units as well as provide heat to low-income homes without any existing unit. Mountable on any wall, it draws in cool, mid-level air to heat before circulating it from above and below to create an invisible whirling mass of warm air. No unsightly controls or cords, the user can control it from the convenience of their tablet or smartphone, even while away.

The 45-degree Effect

The 45-degree Effect

The Outdoor Flashlight has two main selling points to the concept. One – it has a 45-degree angle to it and two – it has twice the solar charging panels to it. The angle is to ensure proper illumination and ability to guide the light in the correct direction. The solar panels give it the extra edge in eco-charging. Since it is the outdoor light, you will have enough exposure to the sun!

The T-Block Effect

The T-Block Effect

Watches are to men as diamonds are to women; both count as the number one fashion accessory and are timeless. Innovation is of essence and creative ways of telling time is a novelty factor. Beyond doubt, complications and mechanical watches are the epitome of technicalities, however due credit has to be given to path-breaking manufactures like the T-Block Watch. Designed to dress the wrist, the most challenging part is to resist the linear display of time!

Aqua Audio

Aqua Audio

There’s nothing like the natural sound of moving water to relax the mind and body. Swonar harnesses this tranquility in an interactive instrument you can control. 5 rhythmically oriented streams allow water to fall on stones that have each been perforated to achieve a unique tone. Users can make their own music by using a pressure touch interface or sit back and enjoy the soothing sound of falling water.

Get Ready for Oculus Rift!

Get Ready for Oculus Rift!

After being successfully crowd-funded, the consumer version of the much anticipated Oculus Rift is still a mystery. This concept by Carlos Pendas gives a glimpse as to what we might expect the virtual reality head-mounted display to look like. It’s designed around 3 main features: a curved screen, integrated headphones and a gesture recognition system. Simple and friendly, it’s a far cry from the gargantuan headsets of yesteryear!

What Racing is All About

What Racing is All About

On one end of the spectrum, electric cars are hitting a milestone with their very first Grand Prix race this year… albeit a quiet one. On the other end are screaming mad, jet fuel-guzzling, ferocious, terrifyingly loud dragsters that are more crazy than carbon-conccious. Guess which end the Equinox is on? 6 wheels and multiple fins are barely enough grip to keep its dual jets and single seat cabin on the ground. I’m sweating just looking at it.

Table That Is A PC

Table That Is A PC

The C-Walker is a radical PC + Table concept whose idea germinates from the fact that workstations with CPU, wires, screen and keyboard look cluttered and distracting. One of the ways to streamline the desk is to integrate the PC into the table itself. What we have now is a desk with wires that are internally set, a virtual keyboard and a projected screen. USB slots and CD ROM slots are flushed to the side of tabletop, along with the power button. Essentially we have a hybrid desk that part PC and part table. Yes, the functional future has arrived!

Modular Cooktop

Modular Cooktop

CookPlat is conceived as a portable Pyrex vitroceramic cooker that uses magnetic induction technology. Designed to be modular, this cooker can be transported and used in just about any environment. Since it is a vitroceramic hob, the cooker directly heats up the utensil via a magnetic field and doesn’t use heating resistors (radiant heat).
