Headphones to Speakers Instantly

Headphones to Speakers Instantly

You’ve got your headphones on, and you hear the greatest song of all time. What do you do? You just chill with it, if that’s the way it affects you. But sometimes a song slides through your headphones that explodes upon you in a way that demands you share it with everyone. What do you wish you had instead, at that point? Speakers. If you’ve got “Dubnium,” speakers are exactly what you’ve got. Dubnium is a pair of headphones until you flip them to position two: high quality multi-person speakers for the whole world to hear what you’d love for them to hear.

Whoa! Men To Pee and Wash In The Same Stand!

Whoa! Men To Pee and Wash In The Same Stand!

I’m not a man so I really don’t know how comfortable you guys are going to be with this thought…peeing and washing hands in the same urinal stand! What Designer Yeongwoo Kim has done is incorporated the wash basin just above the spot you take aim to pee. The reason cited is that you’ll save a water flush cycle, coz when you rinse your hand after the job (I hope you guys do that!), the same gray water can be used to cleanse the urinal basin. Tell me, how many of you guys will be comfortable with this? For once, my opinion doesn’t count, but I do find it funny!

Satisfying Curious Children

Satisfying Curious Children

Oh!Why? is a set of interactive devices meant for children. The aim is to let them record their world around them and then sit down as a family to answer questions based on their videos and satisfy the biggest question “Why?” The set includes a camera and a digital book and both sync with each other. The book can be used by parents to leave IMs and it even doubles up as a nightlight. Interesting to see technology being used by tots at an early age, even if it is for parental communication….better than have no lines open at all!

All the Little Paper Chairs

All the Little Paper Chairs

I’ve become quite fond of the world of laser-cut everything over the past few years, especially when it comes to designed artwork. I say designed artwork because this piece of display is certainly made by Sam Drury because he enjoys it, because he feels the need and has the skill to express himself by creating an image for people to look at, but there’s something else. This “Chairs” posterlike object becomes designed artwork, designwork when it’s made with its audience directly in mind. Drury knew exactly who he wanted to see this when it first popped into his mind.

Seeing Time Differently

Seeing Time Differently

Inside this post you will see five watches. Of these five watches, there are four designs, one with two colorways: black and white. These watches are made by designer Denis Guidone, who says, “I don’t like to design watches, what I really like is to design time” That’s a pretty bold thing to say, yes? But Guidone’s got some pretty fabulous watches here. Let’s take a look.

Three Layers of Memory Foam

Three Layers of Memory Foam

Let me tell you how much Memory Foam this particular chair (part of a chair and table set) employs. Three layers. You could sit on this chair so much that one layer was wrecked and you’d still have 2 left! And it’s super cute and comes in either pink or pink and green. It’s called the “Origine Du Monde, Maybe!” Which in English means “Origin of the World, Maybe!” A totally wild title for a totally wild set of furniture by designer Italo Rota.

Let’s Scale Some Lights

Let’s Scale Some Lights

The Weight of Light is a simple structure lamp featuring a unique way to operate the light. Mimicking the style of an industrial scale, the intensity of the lamp is controlled by shifting the “weight” up and down the “scale”. I adore its refreshing approach, the cute way it tips the scale and minimal look.

Gripping That Milk Bottle Better

Gripping That Milk Bottle Better

As an able bodied person it’s hard to comprehend how simple things like opening a milk bottle and pouring from it can be a challenge for some people. This Milk Bottle Re-design takes into consideration, the use by people who are suffering from dexterity problems; however it doesn’t ignore normal usage either. The solution is one where less or even no clamping force / grip force will have to be applied in order to lift and pour the milk out of the bottle. And thus this new design.

The Everlasting Baby Pram

The Everlasting Baby Pram

The new-age prams are a step-up from the old-gen and transform to become strollers but beyond that I don’t think any designer has come up with ingenious ideas to extend their useful life. Babyoom is what I’d like to call useful thinking, with all probabilities of becoming a cherished family heirloom passed down generations! From ages 0 to 3 it serves as a faithful baby buggy and car seat; from ages 3 to 6 it transforms to a children’s cycle; and beyond that it can be used as a shopping cart for all your shopping sprees.

One Person Camper APE

One Person Camper APE

Do you know about the Piaggio APE 50? It’s the cutest little three wheeled vehicle you’ll ever set your eyes on. Do you love camping? How about totally on your own? How about camping totally on your own inside an APE? The project you’re about to set your eyes on is called the “Bufalino,” and it’s a one-person camper using the APE 50 as its platform. Made for absolute flexibility, the Bufalino contains all the elements needed for living. Only the engine, frame, chasis, and parts of the cab were kept perfectly APE.

A Purple Suit Turned Auto

Have you ever ever ever in your long long life heard of “De Tomaso” car manufacturing company? They’ve done well, almost went into liquidation a few years ago, and are now back in business. And you know who wants to be on their team? Designer Frederik Tjellsesen. And he’s done one heck of a job creating a concept to catch their eye. Tjellsesen’s created a four-door sports car by the name of “Ghepardo,” accenting the fabulously modern gray with a smooth, sensual purple.

Handling Porcelain

Handling Porcelain

If you had a living room full of furniture that was made of all porcelain, how long do you figure it would last? How about if your bicycle were made of porcelain? Your computer case? Well, what do you know, porcelain is breakable, isn’t it?! Yes is it. So why do we made anything out of it? Because it looks and feels amazing. The human eye and the human hand, oh how they love it. Designer Isabell Fringer knows this, that’s why she mad a collection of tableware that’s both porcelain AND super easy to handle.

USB Gets A New Face

USB Gets A New Face

The USB interface is quite fascinating, it’s got an entire peripheral industry started to cater to its existence! We have USB hubs, compatible heads for car-charging, compatible plugs for wall sockets, etc. To cut this long route of buying compatible peripherals just for the sake of charging, why not include the USB seat into a normal socket plate? Let it sit pretty next to the 3-pin socket…just as we see in this picture!
