Life of Pi

Life of Pi

Disasters strike without any warning, so the best thing is to be prepared. For example this Life Box, which is a rapid-response disaster recovery box that can be air dropped. The box basically turns into a four-person inflatable shelter and holds relief goods. This foldable polyethylene box includes two cardboard boxes containing food, water, sleeping bags etc. and transforms into an inflatable shelter.

Time isn't concrete...

Time isn’t concrete…

… but this clock is. Toronto based design collective the NDC found inspiration for this modern wall clock in a vintage hobby book found on a road trip! It’s called the Cairo Star Cut Concrete Clock (say that 10x fast), and its bold multifaceted design gives the illusion of heaviness, but at only 10mm thick, it’s actually quite light! For contrast, it features a translucent neon back plate that captures ambient light for an illuminated effect. Own it here!

The Mono Effect

The Mono Effect

One of the biggest assets that The Mono Sink has is its minimal approach towards lines and bevels. The other highlight is that on the sink’s side there is an overflow, which, alongside with the outlet is designed to manage a maximum water flow rate without any problems. Crafted from Cristadur, an innovational material, the finishing of the sink is superb!

MB&F Legacy Machine 101 Features First In-house Movement

MB&F Legacy Machine 101 Features First In-house Movement

As a watch enthusiast, I understand the pain and pride behind developing an in-house movement. So this time around when MB&F announced their Legacy Machine 101, my interest piqued as it houses the very first movement developed entirely in-house by MB&F. Dominating the dial is a monumental suspended balance wheel, which is another point of interest in terms of design and functionality.

Feel the Time

Feel the Time

The Ehsaas (feel) watch was designed on the principal of the Braille reading system to give sight-impaired users a familiar and easy way to tell the time. Over a glass layer, an advanced electronic active polymer material raises against an overlying plastic substrate. Pixel circuits form and change with the time in the form of Braille so wearers can feel time. Vid after the jump!

Cable Entrapment

Cable Entrapment

While most of us have been talking about the advantages of having a charger integrated into the Smartphone case, cool dudes at LAB.C have already gone ahead and made their version. The Cable Case for iPhone 5S integrates an 8-pin USB cable into the back of the case, allowing you to ALWAYS have a charger on-hand. Clever!

In Case Of Emergency – Break Door

In Case Of Emergency – Break Door

The X-gate addresses one of the biggest situations faced in the aftermath of an earthquake: entrapment. Typically, doors are heavy and main doors are dead-bolt heavy for a reason. The X-gate’s design is such that it can be shattered with ease, thus aiding rescue operations. I suppose its ideal for cities that live in the earthquake zone.

A bike worthy of the name Bison

A bike worthy of the name Bison

With its hybrid design language that allows users to transition between on and off-road modes, the Bison bicycle is the last and only bike you need. The good: robust yet lightweight composite frame, hybrid handlebars, 29″ rims, convenient one-click storage box. The bad: there’s only one example… but maybe not for long (including an electric version to come). Watch it come to life —>
