Equestrian Inspired EV

Equestrian Inspired EV

The Fayton, inspired by the natural (horse) and human (carriage) components of the phaeton horse-drawn buggy of the 19th century, is a project aimed at providing comfortable transportation with a minimal carbon footprint. The EV’s most noticeable features are its transparent body and large glass canopy that provides a 360 degree view outside. The sunroof is made of four glass pieces that, when open, fold back and resemble a horses mane.

Riot Slower Downer

Riot Slower Downer

With widespread protesting and rioting on the rise, it’s no wonder that concepts like this have become a more popular design subject. Disperse is a system of transportable triangular units that can be arranged in combination to create a series of honeycomb paths that rioters must weave through to reach the destination on the other side. Like the name suggests, the aim is to disperse the mass of people into manageable numbers that law enforcement can safely contend with.

Plants Love Your Leftovers

Plants Love Your Leftovers

To many, the idea of starting a compost pile seems like a daunting task. Few of us have large enough outdoor areas or the time and patience to manage. The Nepenthes planter provides a smaller, cleaner way of recycling organics and growing your own food. Simply place your leftovers down the hatch and let the bacteria do the rest. Nutrients will be released back into the soil where they can be used by plants. No need to worry about the smell, a built in carbon filter ensures the planter stays smelling fresh.

Moto-inspired Beemer

Moto-inspired Beemer

Simone Madella’s BMW Tandem is the latest in a trend of concept autos that take inspiration from motorcycles, mixing some of the advantages of both to create a futuristic, adrenaline pumping, and unique vehicle. The Tandem is powered by the same 193 HP engine found in the BMW S1000rr motorcycle. The moto-inspiration can also be seen in its sporty yet light exterior styling and, of course, the tandem seating in the cockpit.

Display Your Magazines

Display Your Magazines

What to do with all those magazines? For starters, throw them out or give them away. Minimize your life. If you can’t, then pay attention to my finger. It’s pointing at you while the word “hoarder” flies out of my mouth. So if you have to keep them, check out the Magazine Globe. It’s designed for reception areas but anyone can use it really. Comes flat packed for easy shipping too. My only issue is once you fill it up to capacity, it’ll be kind of hard to skim covers.

Digital Skin

Digital Skin

As intuitive as touchscreen tablets maybe, I think there are certain situations where you wish you could add on the keyboard for a more comfortable laptop experience. PC Digital Skin addresses this need in a very clever way. It is the combination of a tablet, a mobile phone and a lizard-skin cover, which doubles up as a Bluetooth keyboard. All three used together, give you the perfect laptop experience and yet retain their individuality.

Connections are Everything

Connections are Everything

The conceptual Opportune smartphone app tracks a user’s interests based on keywords from their Facebook updates, web searches, and frequented sites and gives them real-time geolocated “connections” that might be able to help them with something they’ve been searching for. For example, someone in the market for a house could walk in to a coffee shop and see that a real estate agent is at the same coffee shop. With a simple click of a button the two can link up and talk business within minutes!

Wheelchair for Air Travel

Wheelchair for Air Travel

For those confined to a wheelchair, getting around onboard an aircraft can be quite challenging & usually requires assistance from one of the flight crew. Adding this element to the already frustrating flying experience can discourage users from travlling altogether. This is where the Skycare Chair wins- utilizing wheels placed under the seat rather than at the sides & a hand-operated lever system to move forward or backward. It offers independence when moving to & from the lavatory or from chair to gate.

The interchangeable cylinders come in both floor and pendant lamp designs and can be rearranged in a number of combinations to suit the user’s taste. Don’t be deceived by its size and volume though, this design is actually flat-pack ready!
