Simply Superb Lighting

Simply Superb Lighting

It’s the synthesis of technology & craft, natural & high-tech. It’s called the Alhazen Lamp and its economical, eco-friendly design is made of a simplistic, ultra-lightweight wood base & LED light. The acrylic LED tube and wood base create a harmonious and dynamic task lamp with just the essentials, making it as practical as it is understated. In variations of MDF, Beech, Walnut and Ash woods, there are just enough options to get a little choosy!

An Entirely New BBQ

An Entirely New BBQ

Why is it called the “Social Barbecue?” Because it was designed to bring people together, creating an entirely new barbecuing experience through innovation! The first table-safe charcoal grill of its kind, now users can gather round the picnic table and take part in the process together rather than designate a single chef who’s isolated to the side. Similar to a fondue-style dining, it fosters a convivial atmosphere of sharing and entertainment!

Scooter Plus Bike Equals Scoobi!

Scooter Plus Bike Equals Scoobi!

Scoobi is the all-in-one scooter, bike and trike for training tots to ride and scoot! The design features a variable wheelbase so little ones can start out on a 3-wheeled trike before using their new skills on a more difficult setting. When they’re ready, the two rear wheels merge into one to transform into a true bicycle. Better yet, a removable seat allows for easy transition between scooter and bike depending on the rider’s preference!

Swipe, Zigzag and Scan

Swipe, Zigzag and Scan

In the league of portable scanners, so far the biggest innovation has been to make them as small as a wand. Harry Potter series is long gone and its time to lose the wand and embrace the Zcan – the world’s first wireless scanner mouse. Mind you people, we said MOUSE! We have seen plenty of scanners before but not this kinda 2-in-1 Device!

A Smarter Stop Smoking Solution

A Smarter Stop Smoking Solution

Current e-cigarette designs leave it to the user to gradually reduce their own nicotine dosage until they’re prepared to quit entirely, but the notion that users who have trouble weaning in the first place will curb their own addiction is a dead-end road! The E-Volve system takes the user out of the equation. To smooth the process, the autonomous design fractionally reduces the nicotine output at a gradual level that is unnoticeable by the user. This also eliminates the need for complex capsule dosages and calculations, further reducing the effort it takes to quit.

In Your Face Lap Times!

In Your Face Lap Times!

Rather than using expensive, sensitive, hi-tech hardware (like a head-up display or mini lens-projector), Jun Yin’s Viewpace goggles offer a simple extension of a timer for swimmers to track their lap times. The extension is slim and lightweight yet rigid enough to stay intact during rigorous underwater movement. While there is a level of resistance it creates in relation to hydrodynamics, this is negligible compared to the current method of stopping entirely to check a stopwatch located at the edge of the pool!

Washing with Air

Washing with Air

Air Wash is a revolutionary way to clean garments using NO water and NO detergent! The eco-friendly design captures, compresses and converts CO2 into its liquid form which has the unique natural ability to penetrate and remove stains and dirt. Not only saving energy and freshwater during the wash cycle, there’s also no need to tumble dry! Once the wash cycle is over, the door automatically opens and the CO2 liquid instantly evaporates, leaving clothes fresh and dry.

Wheel to the Rescue

Wheel to the Rescue

The RollEvac military vehicle concept uses biomimicry to aid in time-sensitive rescue and evacuation operations in combat situations. Inspired by the golden wheel spider, which curls its body into a wheel shape and rolls down sand dunes as a method of escape, the RollEvac maneuvers in an upright position, rolling over terrain with spring-loaded legs for traction. Inside, passengers are balanced and protected by the armored exterior while being transported to safety.
