Bring This Book to Me

Bring This Book to Me

This project right here is about a notch. A notch in the top of a book. In every single page along the top, making it a cinch to pull out with your finger from your collection on the shelf. It’s all about getting that book all out of the shelf, all at once. Truly taking the book off the shelf is the most taxing of steps in reading a book, especially in a simple thin book like the one in the example here. But if you’re reading The Fountainhead, still, you wanna make it as easy as possible. Whip it out!

One Attachable Ladder

One Attachable Ladder

Now I’ll start saying here that I’ve never fallen off of a ladder. Or at least when I did, I wasn’t up enough rungs to make my falling a breaking and a crunching. Instead, let’s look at this fabulous new Safety Extension Ladder by designer Martin Gibson. You will be the king of the top of the ladder on this one, and you wont be falling down nohow. Nail all the hammers you want up there, with basically no chance of breaking.

How Much Clearer a Switch

How Much Clearer a Switch

I ain’t never seen. I’ve seen some switches with words on them before, but never before such an elegant one. I challenge you to show me a more elegant “ON” switch. In fact, this one is so elegant, and cocky in its elegance, it is titled ‘”On” Switch.’ Our man in Russia, Burakov Denis, sent in this design with the clear intent in mind! To show the world exactly what was going on in the world of lightswitches. But that’s not saying it’s just for that, no! All you engineers, hook this up to your weirdo machines!

Interactiv' Boxing And No Misspelling Here

Interactiv’ Boxing And No Misspelling Here

I tried boxing once and sucked at it. Yes friends, I hit about as hard as bird poop on a car window. It’s pathetic so before I return to the boxing gym, I need the Interactiv’ Boxing companion. It’s wall mounted and as the name suggests, interactive! Aim for the targets as they light up and choose from 10 training programs. They come with a pair of gloves so fistacuffs is not the name of the game here. Once I’m good and ready, I can return to the boxing gym with my head held high.

Tang, Tea And More, On The Go

Tang, Tea And More, On The Go

Cumulus Bottle concept is simple, it’s a plain reusable bottle with a juice concentrate dispenser located in the cap. Pop in the juice cartridge into its compartment, fill in the water and you’re set. At the push of a button, the drink concentrate (or granules) dispense into the water and mix into a refreshing drink. Most often we discard the used juice/soda bottles, but with the Cumulus, we eliminate that action and re-use it time and again for flavored drinks on the go. Eco-consumers at their best!

Nintendo 3DS With Huge Screens!

Nintendo 3DS With Huge Screens!

Olivier Demangel is basically a 3D artist and his take on Nintendo is really awesome. What’s missing in the real-world version is screen real estate and this concept takes care of that. Over the years many designers have had their take on this game console, but thus far I like this the best. So what do you think…do we need a Nintendo DS redesign or are you happy with what you got? Psst…those who want a peek at what an iPhone gaming console should look like, hit this link.

These Kisses are NOT for Eating!

These Kisses are NOT for Eating!

I mean it! They’d rip holes in your gullet all day long! Nay! These are for a much more technologically advanced purpose. Yes! It is true, they are made specifically for holding your compact-disk-shaped objects aloft. You too, can experience the perfectly lovely shape and usefulness of the kissy object without all of that melty, irresistible chocolaty innard. That’s what’s going on here. Made out of aluminum.

Cuteness at Tea Time

Cuteness at Tea Time

All you cuties out there who drink tea! Your time is now! Yes, today you, yes you, get another sensory experience out of your time for tea. And it’s so small, and it’s so cute. It’s kawaii. No, it’s super kawaii! It is a spoon from designer Ha Cho Hee. And guess what? The name of the designer rhymes with the name of the spoon. How cute! It’s the “When You Stir Tea” by Ha Cho Hee! Hooray!

Creature Feature Time

Creature Feature Time

It’s that time again! It’s time for a clock. This one is frightfully titled “Creature Clock”, but not in such a terrible way. Nay! This is truly the monster you’ll love to have around your bedside. In five pieces. Yes, weird! Wonderfully abstract! This clock comes in five distinct pieces that you set out, all next to one another, on your shelf or counter, all of them in a group as one. On the one you can see the time, but as there are no numbers, and the forms are mere suggestions of beings, it is all very vague.

New Meaning To Front Wheel Drive

New Meaning To Front Wheel Drive

I can already hear the keyboards of thousands of readers tearing into this concept so lets just step back and embrace the idea for a minute. The TAA concept car was designed with older people in mind, hence the retro styling. It evokes various eras gone by but quickly grabs you by the ankles and drags you into the future with it’s non-existant rear wheels. It’s all front wheel drive and gyroscopes to stabilize this electrically powered beast. Could such a concept work? I wouldn’t mind going for a spin.

Stale-o-meter

Stale-o-meter

The Foodmer is kinda like a stale-o-meter that will tell you how fresh or rot your food is. Tupperware and Seal containers have spoilt our habits a bit. Even I have a tendency to pre-cook, chop and store my veggies and fruits. Normally I’m not the sorts to let my veggies go stale, but you can’t expect everyone to be diligent and keep a track. If nothing else, the red warning strip will remind you to consume the contents before they spoil. Preventive measures I suppose.
