Accurate Climate Control

Accurate Climate Control

ROOT takes the guess work out of perfecting the humidity level indoors. The combination humidifier/de-humidifier automatically detects levels and adjusts output depending on the fine-tuned user preferences. A simple, integrated bucket also makes it easy to keep replenishing the water supply without toting the entire device around. As for its form, it pays homage to the traditional Korean braziers used in ancient times to control the air condition.

Tesseract. AllSpark. Wondercube!

Tesseract. AllSpark. Wondercube!

It takes a geek to get what I meant by that heading. Nevertheless, the Tesseract and the AllSpark are uber-powerful cubes from the Avengers and the Transformers cultures respectively. Each cube holds enough power to change life on earth. The Wondercube may just be the next cube to promise something as big as that. Designed to be one cubic inch in volume, the Wondercube has everything. Literally! A cable to charge your phone, to transfer files, a card reader (in case you need one), a mobile stand, an emergency power bank, and obviously, a torch.

I call this a School-Stool

I call this a School-Stool

As kids in kindergarten, we would place our chairs upside down on our desks at the end of the day. To make it easier for the cleaning staff to sweep the mess we’d made all day. Now, while most children don’t go beyond three and a half to four feet, stacking chairs sounds like a good practice to get kids to understand how stack-ability works. The stackstool is a colourful, child-friendly stool that stacks easily.

3D printer that's cheaper than an iPhone

3D printer that’s cheaper than an iPhone

I knew that title would grab your attention. While we’re on the subject, yes it’s true. The Tiko printer goes for $179 and apart from the highly competitive price tag, the printer boasts of a unibody design, the ability to process branded/non-branded filaments, and a new Delta technique of printing that involves the nozzle being controlled by three arms. This allows the printer to print with stunning accuracy, and faster!

Simply called the “Fold Bike,” this origami-inspired folding cycle provides ultra-portability in the urban environment without sacrificing style. The dapper design’s paramount feature, however, is a folding wheel that saves additional space. It’s been designed with a simple yet robust spring locking mechanism that engages the wheel in a fixed and sturdy position in motion. With a simple release of the lock, the wheel folds into just a quarter of its size.

Stylish Meets Space-Saving Stool

Stylish Meets Space-Saving Stool

More often than not, folding functionality means a sacrifice in aesthetics for many objects including bikes, tables, and seating. The Tension Stool, however, finds that harmonious sweet spot between folding ability and style. Its minimal yet effective construction is at once sculptural and useful for supplementary seating that can be stowed away with a simple collapsing of its 3 legs. To get it out of the way, just slide it under the bed or sofa!

Streamlined Beemer Bike

Streamlined Beemer Bike

The BMW Apollo Streamliner’s wild full-fairing front half can only mean one thing: … speed. Designed to test its legs for the Salt Lake speed record, the Motorrad’s unorthodox shape is ideal for deflecting high speed wind away from the rider while in a standard tucked position. Handsomely decked out in BMW’s signature silver steel and leather, its flashy enough… but overall, it’s better suited for straight lines than Main Street.

Concealed and Convenient

Concealed and Convenient

Switchblades are for gangsters. Army Knives are for, well, army people (duh). What about the general populace? People who randomly need a knife to cut something open, or cut something loose? You can’t keep a full fledged knife on your body at all times. That’s the first sign that you may need therapy. The Screwpop is a tiny little knife to get the job done. It has its own stainless steel protective cover (that also opens bottles…whut whut!), and a brass eye that allows the knife to be secured to your keychain or carabiner clip.
