The Nail Within!

The Nail Within!

I see carpenters fumble for the nails in their span or gripping a mouthful quite hazardously. The Nail Hammer is an easy solution, where the handle holds a silicon case full of nails and is easily accessible. I guess this means one less nail swallowed, one finger less hurt and a nail hammered right on its head!

Bright Lights and TRON Time

Bright Lights and TRON Time

How do you read time… if you’re INSIDE a computer?! This is a question we’ll all have to ask when we’re at that new TRON movie whenever it decides it’s ready to come out. I’m anticipating the pants off it, and so is designer Scott Galloway, who today presents to the world this TRON-inspired watch called the “Seven-R-Zero-N” aka 7R0N. This watch is rare in that it lends attention to not only the face, but to the strap as well.

Tunneling Toward Comfort

Tunneling Toward Comfort

Behold a whole new way of thinking about furniture. These bits are called “Tunnels” and they’re designed by a really radical designer by the name of Noga Berman. Each of these lovelies (a stool and a bedlike apparatus in this post,) lets you slip in and out of hiding spaces as easily as you were able as a tiny child. In fact, one of the major inspirations for this collection for designer Noga Berman was observing children playing that classic game: hide and seek!

A New Way to Stand Your Pans

A New Way to Stand Your Pans

I’m always thinking of new ways to stand my pans. That’s why I love it whenever I get to write about a new pan stand. This particular pan stand comes from designer Damian Evans who has done this lovely design for the folks over at Hahn Cookwear. This stand, says Evans, was designed as a modern alternative to the traditional pan stand, and it uses a chromed steel frame with colored plastic arms to do its everloving pan holding job.

Ride Those Bones

Ride Those Bones

The Bone Bicycle takes inspiration from the natural structure of a human bone, meaning light-weight yet strong. This cycle also exudes the same feeling of being naturally strong with an easy smooth ride and a light-weight frame. It comes at the right time of Halloween, when ghost, ghouls and skeletons keep knocking at your front door!

Push-Pull; Tug Of War Is Over!

Push-Pull; Tug Of War Is Over!

Sticker industry may get a setback because their “Push” and “Pull” stickers may soon get redundant. The In & Out Door solves the problem of indicating push or pull on doors by making the door handle intuitive. On the “push” side, there is a flat panel and on the “pull” side there is a handle. Instinctively you know which side of the door opens which ways, and you get crowned as a super genius!

A Green, Green Bed

A Green, Green Bed

I’ve got to begin this post by letting you know the fantastically simple description we were given in the mail, in response to our “No more than 1000 words” request: “This is a green bed.” Very to the point. Luckily, elsewhere there was much more to be known. It’s got everything! LED reading lights above your head, speakers for music to be played to wake you up, a flower box for lovely vines to grow up the sides, LED light to help the plant grow, and more! It’s the Ecotypic Bed!

Avatar Inspired Modularity

Avatar Inspired Modularity

Here’s a lamp from the coldest snow piles of Russia, presented by designer Anton Kozhevnikov who just happened to be really inspired by James Cameron’s Avatar. This lamp goes by the name “Atan” and has three modular fixtures. The base is heavy and full of sockets, each of them fitting and locking perfectly with the fixtures in order to assure stability. LED lights blast light from the tips of these fixtures, and puppies love it!

Watch to Time, Turbines to Speed!

Watch to Time, Turbines to Speed!

Behold, the ancient power of windmills! It’s no mistake that windmills have been so prevalent in horror movies over the course of our recent past – the very thought of such a majestic beast being blown to bits gives me the shivers! Projects design group reminds us that windmills are amongst humankind’s oldest energy sources, turning water and wind into pure power! Thusly, they’ve made an object to remind us of that excellent trade here, in the Turbino watch.

Ultra Sonic Wine

Ultra Sonic Wine

No point in consuming wine that hasn’t aged sufficiently or buying plenty if you don’t have proper cellars to store them. A mid-way option is the WAVE Ultra Sonic Wine Ager And Refrigerator concept. An appliance that features two-layered shelves with the inner walls emitting ultrasonic waves, to act on the molecules of the wine, to age them! A custom touchscreen helps you navigate through the settings, helping you determine the speed of aging at the touch of a button. Definite a prized gift for the connoisseur who has serious space issues at home!

Supernatural Coke!

Supernatural Coke!

I’m not getting you high on any abusive substance here, but simply telling you about a new spiritual form of the ever-famous Coca Cola. Lovingly called the Mystic, this new package boasts of “sexy lines”, “sculpted body”, and “loving silhouette”. It’s not an attempt to get Eco Friendly, but just an exercise to bring happiness in 3 dimensions!

Windows of Protection

Windows of Protection

This is an automobile for the future of family transport and safety and it goes by the name “The Guardian.” Epic name! It’s automated enough that you need no license, there’s no age minimum, and you can be drunk as a sailor inside of it while it’s cruising down the road. Well that’s crazy!, you must be saying. It’s automated!, I say. I can’t help but think of the film Minority Report where the cars also all-but-drive themselves, allowing lots of freedom for speed but as you quickly realize, a lot of room for control by big brother.
