One Fantastical Technology Campus

One Fantastical Technology Campus

Those architecture masters over at UNStudio have their work cut out for them, and they’ve got the knives to do it. Today their project is Plot A of the Singapore University of Technology and Design campus (SUTD.) This location is Singapore’s fourth and most prestigious university, located on a site equalling 76,846 m². This set of buildings will be a place where technological innovation and economic growth will be driven, where advancement is their middle name, where people, ideas, and innovation spring forth and flourish!

Into The Upstairs

Into The Upstairs

Welcome to a private home in the inside of Islington, London. It’s here that an unnamed client asked some design heroes (listed below) to replace their lowly ladder to their loft with a permanent staircase. This loft was to be turned into a study and the connection needed to be improved! This staircase, thusly, was to fit inside a space of 140 cm x 90 cm (aka approximately 4.59 feet by 2.95 feet.) Wowzers!

Bombshell Greens

Bombshell Greens

The Peaceful Bomb Vase reminds me of the Seedbomb project, which had a similar intent. The only difference that Seedbomb was peaceful bombing of seed-capsules to mother earth and the Peaceful Bomb Vase a showcase of the harvested treasures. The vase is a part of the design team Biaugust’s Peace Collection and apparently a part of the proceeds go to Biaugust’s cause A.N.S.W.E.R. (Act Now to Stop War & End Racism). Love this explosion!

Sunlight VS Pixel Power

Sunlight VS Pixel Power

Sunglasses, the coolest thing since sliced bread, are about to get a wild revamp. Designer Chris Mullin presents “Electronic Sunglasses,” a concept for blocking the sun not all at once, but in a targeted manner, creating not just a blocked vision, but a modified one. These glasses have what Mullin calls a “glare shield” that reacts to and follows bright light sources inside the glasses area, blocking it to a degree that will potentially change the way you see the world, letting you see straight forward when otherwise the sun would force you to blink.

The Best Pocket Cam, Flip UltraHD Review

The Best Pocket Cam, Flip UltraHD Review

Once upon a time pocket cams were poor substitutions for the real thing but those days are over. Flip, one of the originators, still sits on top as providing the best all around pocket cams. Still in its sleek package and ridiculously simple UI, the Flip UltraHD, as its name implies, shoots 720p video at 60 fps. The image stabilization is better than any competitor and at $149, provides the best bang for your buck. Hit the jump for our review.

Uh oh, look at this little beauty. Just what the doctor ordered. Need to listen to some fabulous banjo music but your electronic amp broke? No problem, just dunk your iPhone into this baby right here. It’s an iPhone dock that fits snugly around your precious smartphone and amps up the tunes with simple science. Through these two precision cut holes the music will bounce louder than they came. Very luxuriously done!

Then if you’re reading something very interesting but must take a short snack break, you can use the gap under your forearm to hold your page. Glorious!

UPDATE: Holy Cup of Doubleness

Now in mid-production! So be sure to Pre-order the Holey Jolly on CKIE, the offer is open for a very limited time.

Holy cheese anyone? This is a cup with holes in it. What’s the use? Well it keeps your hands cool when you pour in a hot drink, for one. But wait! Won’t the hot drink sploosh out the sides when poured in the top? No way! Know why? Because there’s two layers. The outer layer has holes, the inner layer contains the liquid. Sound good? Sounds super fancy! Sounds great!

Slotted Table For Books

Slotted Table For Books

The Exhibi-Table for Library is quite a unique idea, it looks at dividing books and magazines in categories to be exhibited in their own select slot. So basically you can display a lot more books up front and provide space for readers to browse though the collection. I think it will work well in schools and maybe at book exhibitions and stalls.

Print That Screen, Literally!

Print That Screen, Literally!

Document Extractor – Combi Monitor is a screen that doubles up as a printer as well. Why? Because you need precious space on your desk to put other stuff! You need to have cool tech devices that put stacks of printer paper hidden away from view! You need to boast of uber cool monitors just cause you don’t own a 27” iMac! That’s why!

Sassy Hanger Bag

Look at that! It’s a clever bag for carrying home all your newly purchase clothing you got this excellent shopping season. It’s an upside-down hanger, it looks nice, it’s got some great color to it. But what’s this? Is this… yes! It’s detachable, and I can use it to hang my clothing up! What a good little bag you’ve been. I will not recycle you. Have fun, use your products always! Add this to your file of “best packages basically ever.”

Nice Coat... Nice Purse!

Nice Coat… Nice Purse!

Wait for it… it’s a coat! Wait for it… it’s a sack! There’s almost nothing I like better than a good transformer when it comes to industrial design. You know I love it when one item adds something simple and gains a whole new level of usefulness. It’s a whole new world when two items combine into one – case in point: “Wear Me Bag” by Rotem Lewinsohn, a lovely fashion accessory that can convert into a carrier.
