Mobile Home Living 2010

Mobile Home Living 2010

Let’s talk. Let’s talk about a way of living that’s really gotten a bad reputation, as far as ways of living go – that being mobile home living. People who live in trailer parks – they’re poor. People who live in trailer parks – they’re not the best kind of people to be hanging around with. That’s the kind of talk that’s basically standard in the USA, but if a project so fabulous as the one I’m about to show you takes off, that image is sure to change.

Magic Trick Number 420 - Water Flow

Magic Trick Number 420 – Water Flow

Ever noticed the magical hand gestures that Chris Angel and David Blaine use? Appling their knowledge and art to the good old kitchen faucet will make a real sorry show, unless you use the “Spatial Interaction” touchless kitchen tap! Touch-less as it gets, air-skim your hands in a gesture as to draw out water and pesto…the flow begins. Magic in your hands control everything, temperature, flow, speed, stream, but unfortunately this trick is restricted to the kitchen.

Accordion Speakers

Accordion Speakers

The beauty of the Music Accordion Speakers is that they are compact, yet spread their wings when the need arises. Fanning out like the musical instrument, the two extendable arms maneuver to face any direction, resulting in personalized sound effects! Two suction cups at the center gives it the flexibility to latch onto surfaces and be twisted to eccentric shapes, just for fun! Needless to say it syncs with all the latest PMPs and phones.

Each One that Sits on Goes Ahhh

Each One that Sits on Goes Ahhh

That’s a comfort “Ahhh”, not a scream. Though you MIGHT be screaming when you find out how excellent this chair is. That’s what we’re talking about. It’s a seat that goes by the name “Ipanema armchair,” and it’s oh, so pretty. Made out of medium densified hardwood with a multi-laminated shell wood. This sort of combo allows for a great number of shapes, they say, and your eyeballs are about to explode with flavor when you see the ones they’ve combo’d.

Unidrill, For The Drill Challenged

Unidrill, For The Drill Challenged

Picture this – I’m holding a Black & Decker drill ready to mount this damn TV sitting on the floor for months. I go in for the kill and everything just goes wobbly. My hands are all over the place. The drill bit is stripping the screw, the screw has gone in crooked, and I’m squealing like a banshee. Not a good look. I’m a 29 y.o. man. I need the Unidrill.

In 2020 We Can Wear Sony Computers On Our Wrist

In 2020 We Can Wear Sony Computers On Our Wrist

Our present need for internet connectivity is so profound that secondary devices like the Nextep Computer are bound to happen. Developed to be worn as a bracelet, this computer concept is constructed out of a flexible OLED touchscreen. Earmarked for the year 2020, features like a holographic projector (for screen), pull-out extra keyboard panels and social networking compatibility, make the concept plausible. Ten years from now is not too far away, so how many of you think we’d be buying such gadgets?

I Want To Be A Foreman

I Want To Be A Foreman

The lifestyle of a construction foreman never appealed to be because it’s not glamorous enough. We are talking about me here. I’m about as reserved as Cher on Oscar night. I digress. If the TRIANGLE is what future foremen will be riding around in, then sign me up. Yes its got all-terrain mobility and an electric motor but HELLO, it’s a CATEPILLAR disguised as a scooter. I get to be in charge and do so in one of these things? Loves it.

Let’s Play Doctor Doctor!

Let’s Play Doctor Doctor!

Identity Crisis is the theme for Antrepo Design’s “I’m Not A…” series and the last item in this lineup is Stethedphone – I’m not a doctor! Predictably it’s a headset that looks like a stethoscope and comes with a remote and mic. It allows you to make and receive calls, access voice-control features, and listen to music from your iPhone or iPod. The scope is made from ultra light and flexible plastic, plus three sizes of soft silicone ear tips add extra comfort.

FROM THE CRADLE TO THE GRAVE

FROM THE CRADLE TO THE GRAVE

What one product do you own, will be useful your entire lifespan? Can’t think of it? That’s because it doesn’t exist, until today. Introducing the GO-GO TRANSPORTER by Tory Orzeck. Originally designed for “obese Americans” (not sure how that is relevant), this design was a finalist at the 2010 IDEA (International Design Excellence Awards) by IDSA. With interchangeable components you can build out a stroller for a newborn, a wagon for playtime, a piece of luggage for your anxious years and a dolly to haul your dead butt to the grave.

Dune and Milk

Dune and Milk

Now, depending on what kind of a person you are, you might have expected that the title of this post had something to do with a wild science fiction movie and a tasty beverage OR, you’d know it’s about some amazing furniture one way or another. And truthfully, yes, there is an abundance of the big F-bomb in here, lots of places to sit, lots of places to put a glass of milk. All of it done by DUNE.

Open Book, Get Chair

Open Book, Get Chair

Is two posts enough to see a trend? Here’s a book that, when you open it, becomes a seat. Sit on it. It’s called the “Take a Seat” and it’s designed by Darris Hamroun, who more than likely owns more than one bookshelf. This book sits perfectly well up there with the rest of your novels and Star Wars chapterbooks and Teen Beat magazines, then when you want to take a sit, you literally take a book to take a sit. And you sit.

Pebble This, Pebble That

Pebble This, Pebble That

What you’re about to experience right now is a little piece of electronic device called the “Pebble.” It is a simple new take on the keychain car opener based not on buttons, but on sliding. You’ll be sliding all around the town when you find how fun and simple and strangely sensual it is to use the Pebble. It’s stylish. You’ll understand how to use it in basically 5 seconds, and it’ll never be set off in your pocket by accident…?
