All That Jazz And Lights

All That Jazz And Lights

It is hard for the Sparkbeats iPhone Case to get lost in the sea of designs being created on a daily basis. First off it features an original design that I have yet to see anywhere. Secondly it turns your camera flash into a stream of light, the only thing missing is some music! Without being too much of a burden on the battery, the Patented technology used in the cover requires no external LED and battery. How cool is that!

The Most Eco-Friendly Bottled Water

The Most Eco-Friendly Bottled Water

With a title like that, I bet some of you just rolled your eyes, but hear me out. Treeson is an eco-friendly, toxin-free, trash eliminating, clean energy making, tree planting, best tasting, purest natural spring water ever. Designer Carlton Solle figured out the current recycling system is flawed so he came up with a new system that produces/recycles the bottles, fills them with spring water, and ships them out. Each bottle comes with a built-in return label so it ends right back at the source. AND a tree is planted for every bottle sold. Cradle to Cradle?

The Manure Master

The Manure Master

The so-called manure catchers on the backs of horse carriages do little to keep piles and piles of poop from collecting on the streets! For a lot of cities, it’s an epidemic and comes down to find a way to catch the poop… or stop the tours! The Fiaker 2.0 addresses two of the issues: actually catching the manure… and maintain the traditional look for an authentic experience! See how it works —>

The iPhone Saga – More Real Estate

The iPhone Saga – More Real Estate

So, the story continues….we have another brilliant iPhone 6 concept that features a flat screen with 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch display options. The resolution of screen allows the icons reorganization on the springboard. I think it looks very fulfilling to have a screen that spills over the edges.

Imaginary Faces

Imaginary Faces

Though its construction is skeletal and light, the Hedron table uses simple geometries to give the illusion of mass. The dual octahedron supports not only give the piece structural integrity, but create invisible planes that are easy to imagine as solid figures.

Beyond a Blowdryer

Beyond a Blowdryer

Chances are the words “communal blowdryer” spark some less than desirable mental images from your last visit a hotel bathroom. Not cute! The OBLOW dryer solves many of the functional and aesthetic issues of current models with a cordless, minimal, wall-mounted, easy-to-clean design. That’s easy enough… but the heart of the system is its digital interface that allows users to play music, schedule a taxi, check flights, locate points of interest and anything else a traveler needs!

Business On the Top, Party On the Bottom

Business On the Top, Party On the Bottom

This eye-catching piece, called Hudson, combines an industrial structure with sophisticated modern accents. The focal point of the design is a bright, powder-coated base of intersecting legs that seem to play trick on the eye or change shape as the viewer moves. In contrast, its slim and elegantly carved tabletop is garnished with a striking intersecting diagonal inlay and is reminiscent of traditional Danish furniture.
