Crystal Power Up

Crystal Power Up

So I was in the comic books and games store the other day, minding my own business, and what catches my eye? Dice. Thousands of dice. All sizes and shapes and amounts of sides and materials. Materials, you say? Yes, there was a case full of dice whose prices ranged into the triple digits for a small pack: packs of silver, gold, and other fine materials. Wacky wonderful! So what’ve the designers at Calypso Crystal got brewing for you in their lab along these lines? Maybe something… crystal?

Red Lights in Hong Kong

Red Lights in Hong Kong

One of the designers of Living Pixels, (one of the largest amounts of fun I’ve had writing about a lamp,) has designed another miraculous light holder with the name “A+ Lamp” on it. This lamp can hang every which way – up, down, left, right, and is inspired by the wet market in Hong Kong, a place where no matter which shop, stand, or place of business you come upon, there’s bound to be some red lampshades. Why? Red light makes food look tasty!

Medical Patients of the Present

Medical Patients of the Present

To me, the most enthralling idea presented in the following massively important project you’re about to experience is this: “I don’t think of myself as the Patient of the Future – it is the perspective of the providers that puts me in this box of the Patient of the Future – I’m a patient of the present!” This project / video presentation is called “Design We Can All Live With” and it is about how a Minneapolis-based design firm is aiming toward a better patient-based healthcare system through technology right this moment.

Sync Into Your Seat

Sync Into Your Seat

The Sync is a seating system consisting of a number of cubes that move up and down with a persons body weight by the aid of gas springs, to create arm rests and a back rest from the surrounding cubes. Brills! Of course that means anyone attempting to sit next to me will get my pissy face because they’re essentially sitting on my armrests. I like the idea, hate the covers. Fortunately there are other upholstery options.

Two Flashlights In One, And Some Florescent Magic

Two Flashlights In One, And Some Florescent Magic

The Emergency Flashlight is meant for a grab-me-on-the-way-out emergency situation. What it features is a single flashlight tube that splits up into two and is connected via s florescent rope. The two split-up tubes work as powerful independent flashlights and the rope in between the two is used as a safety guide. The user scenario would be something like this; two responsible adults hold on to the two lights and the elderly and children hang on to the luminescent rope.

The O+ Music Campaign

The O+ Music Campaign

From what I’ve learnt, marketing is all about how make a product get noticed and grab media attention in the shortest possible span of time. An effective campaign can either be subtle, the get-under-your-skin kinds or be totally in-your-face. In the music industry it’s the latter route that finds much success, which is why flamboyance and distinctiveness is a part of the game. The O+ Promotional Media Package is just that! Ideal for single song releases and candid promos, the kit includes music access via a vinyl record, compact disc, USB flash drive and as an iTunes Download Code, bundled together.

Zipped Tight Seat

Zipped Tight Seat

This seat is the one you buy if you want everyone to say – “where did you get such a chair, such a completely unique and wild chair?” You want people to say that, right? You’re that kind of wacky fellow or lady, correct? Lemme tell you all about this chair “Zipfred.” It’s made of cable ties, 6 wooden elements, and 20 layers of cardboard. The cable ties hold the entire chair together solid, the entire structure in its final form looking like you bought it directly out of a modern art museum fancy shop.

Boards of The Living Dead

Boards of The Living Dead

Inspired by author Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein story, designer Tlalit Segal Raayoni presents a set of wood furniture brought back from the dead, made to further our understanding of both the living and the not-so-alive trees in our world. Dr. Frankenstein wanted to understand the so-called “essence” of life and death, and to do this, combined the two – creating a strange beast, like yet unlike either of the two. So too is this new tiny collection “Vision of Dry Boards.” Behold the excellence of resurrected scraps of wood, put together and given the breath of new life.
