No-Holes Wall Hanging

No-Holes Wall Hanging

The Magnektik hanging system is based on unique magnetic units that hold up to a whopping 220 pounds! This allows heavy items like televisions, shelving and artwork to hang without slipping and without causing damage to the wall. The system works by grasping to a series of thin, decorative metal panels glue to the wall and installed in a visible or invisible manner. The resulting a clean look with hanging ability you can count on. Vid after the jump!

Taking the Tech Out of Technology

Taking the Tech Out of Technology

In contrast to the current trend of high resolution imaging, the Ambient Display project relies on the quality of fuzziness! This effect is created through the combination of an ALUCOBOND media LED matrix with a Bencore aluminum honeycomb structure. With just 1000 large pixels, it bridges the digital and analog worlds. Less detailed and more subtle, the result is an artistic visual experience with a variety of application opportunities. Hit the jump to see how the designers put it to use!

The Ultimate Mobile Printer

The Ultimate Mobile Printer

So how about this … your phone case also doubles up as a portable printer. I like the concept and logically speaking, we are seeing many new practical designs that support portable printer – scanners that are pint-sized. Taking it a step further and cramming it as a Smartphone cover is an eventuality. Just a matter of time! So we have it on paper now … let the drum rolls begin…

The Very Visible Traffic Lights

The Very Visible Traffic Lights

Panorama Traffic Lights are easily visible to pedestrians even if it is hidden behind tall buses (and other bulky vehicles) at the signal crossing. It is designed in a manner that increases the signal’s visibility across various viewing angles. It enhances road safety by cutting down accidents and ensuring that crossings are safer. Love the design and wonder if this is the solution we are looking for.

Easy Pain Relief

Easy Pain Relief

I’ve just been through a painful patch of wound dressing and using awkward bandages, which is why I know that an improvement in design is needed. Although meant to be used as a Pain Relief Patch (for muscle pains), The Rolling Patch concept can be extended for all kind of bandages and First Aid dressing concepts. You can alter the length of the patch and trim to the requisite length, avoiding wastage and promoting easy application. Super!

The Luggage Trap

The Luggage Trap

This luggage tray concept surely tops the ones I have seen long distance buses use. The entire tray pulls out and allows you to load the bags with ease. Next, you slide the tray back in and you’re ready to go. The difference actually is the ability of the tray to slide out completely and hold the weight of the bags thanks to the pull-down legs. A simple redesign that can work out well for the loader and his back! Relief from the strain!

A Clean Swim

A Clean Swim

Public swimming pools can get messy and dirty during the summer months and maintaining them is quite a task. Typically water filtration is done best when the pool is empty, however concepts like this Water Filtration are intriguing and helpful. Individual capsules of filtration systems line the pool ropes and help clean the water constantly. Yes, you can swim with peace without having to worry about how many kids have pee-ed in the pool!

Clear Signals

Clear Signals

I have experienced driving in foggy and rainy conditions and know the kind of danger it poses for tailing cars. Ideas like the Wipers LED Barricade Lights are innovative and can go on to prevent accidents. Most often, smaller cars just have to rely on their taillights and flasher to warn others behind them, so this wiper plus LED Display can reduce the risk of accidents. Great work!

Double the Power

Double the Power

Wireless Dual Battery is a compact disk-shaped design that splits into two components. Both the ends house recharging gear and can be used to juice your dying Smartphone. Love it for its design and convenient portability.

Superfast Extinguisher

Superfast Extinguisher

Designed to be rolled on the floor as you run towards extinguishing a flame, the O-Extinguisher is easier to move than traditional one. It even discharges a larger amount of fire suppressants to douse a fire. Super clever and super fast, this is a concept that I’d like to see move to the next level. Any takers?
