Car Shelves Galore

Car Shelves Galore

So you’ve got your bike-sharing situation in the city, do you? We’ve got one over here in Minneapolis, and it’s working great! Electric bikes for everyone! Mister Roberto Dei Lidi liked such an idea, but wanted to spread it on over to cars. Car sharing, you say? Not just any car sharing, electric car sharing! How would you do such a thing? With a tower of cars, of course.

Bike Folded Sharp as a Razor

Bike Folded Sharp as a Razor

There have been many folding bicycle concepts posts in the many years Yanko Design has been in business, and here’s another one. One bike might fold to a small size, one might fold in a way that allows you to wheel it around. This one folds down max, max, max. Take a look at all the previous posts with folding bike concepts in them and compare.

Umbrella Is High On Grass!

Umbrella Is High On Grass!

How I love the double-meaning to this title, but sadly (err, debatable!) the grass referred to here is the sober green variety that grows in your backyard. Awesome idea displayed with the Green Trace project! A flat umbrella stand comes fitted with mesh and some pre-sowed seeds; lean wet umbrellas as suggested and let the water drip down to water em greens. Easy in a jiffy get indoors grass; a green patch out of nowhere! How very organically-kitsch!

Let Me Count Your Money, Honey!

Let Me Count Your Money, Honey!

So much cash stashed at home that fingers get tired while counting! Who wouldn’t want to live that life! The truth is that small business and maybe some households do have that kind of money, and the big counting machines currently available are inconvenient. So the solution lies in a compact Counting Ring, a simplified money counting machine. It packs in features like LED Display & Power Switch, Sheet-Separating Veins, Battery Slot and Infrared Ray Scanning. Slip it on the thumb and you’re set.

Teeth for your Tea Drinking

Teeth for your Tea Drinking

If you’re anything like me, you’re sad that it is no longer Halloween (unless, when you’re reading this, it is again Halloween, then hooray!) So you must find all sorts of amazingly strange ways to make it your favorite day of darkness all year long. Here is one of those things. It’s a teeth mug. You can buy it, you should buy it, it’s weird, it’s wonderful. Also it’s for coffee, but if you’re already this far, might as well fill it with something nastier.

Vac for the Future

Vac for the Future

During the summer of 2010, organizations expressing concern for the environment around the world headed out to the ocean to collect marine debris. Once they had a bunch, the sent it (I’m assuming in a zip-lock bag) to appliance mater Electrolux to see what they could do with it. Basically, Electrolux took out the mould and got moulding. With this debris, Electrolux created “Vacs from the Sea.”

Multiple Indubitable Perceptions

Multiple Indubitable Perceptions

Here’s a clock to add to your collection of oddest clocks of all time. This is the Parallel of Time clock and it’s a concept reflecting off the idea that although the speed of time is indubitable (the designer used this word, and I love it, so I will keep using it forever,) the perception everyone has of it is different. Time is perceived. Here is a strange clock.

Socialize With Me Here

Socialize With Me Here

It’s called the Habitbox. Its form is designed to encourage socialization behaviors a.k.a. it’s a cool place to chill – a hang out spot. Not quite sure if those surfaces are hard or soft but I know I rather sit in one of these things than a park with grass where ants poop. Yeah, I said it. Ants do poop. Same reason I don’t like swimming in the ocean. Whales poop too.

Home and Personal Radiator

Home and Personal Radiator

I would appreciate this more if I lived in a colder climate but I still want it!. The Akopo is a new kind of radiator system made from PVC, refractory stone and ceramic. I say “new kind” because the main body not only radiates heat like a traditional unit, but also warms up detachable modules made of PVC elastomer and ceramic. They’re safe to use and incredibly flexible. Sometimes you don’t need to heat up the whole house. You just want to warm yourself up.

Iron None More Black

Iron None More Black

This is the most metal iron for clothing you will ever find in the world. You can use it for ironing, then, if there’s a zombie apocalypse, you can stab the heck out of some undead skulls with it just as easy. This is A Menës Iron by Nico Kläber. This project is made for men, men who are ashamed of using a regular white iron because they are afraid of being called a sissy. Truly they will be the most masculine of flat-clothing men now.

Maniacal Webbed Metal

Maniacal Webbed Metal

Based on a 1995 NASA experiment in which spiders were exposed to various chemicals then were tested based on the patterns of webs they spun. Fun! This project goes by the name SOD_Project and is a three-dimensional re-addressing of the webs these bonked-out spiders spun, but this time in metal. Each of these objects seems to be created as a sort of art-objects, but I bet you could put your apples in there too.
