Coffee On A Stick

Coffee On A Stick

Allow me to introduce you to the most revolutionary way of making coffee….directly from a stick! The Cappuccino Coffee Stick is a spoon laden with your favorite coffee-fix that dissolves deliciously into a steaming cup of water. Tear away the plastic wrap, dip the instant spoon and a few good swirls later; a piping hot cup of coffee is ready for your consideration. The need for “your type of coffee” can only be understood by an addict, I’m one and for me this design wins full brownie points. Now only if Nescafe Select were available on this spoon!

CCTV for Me!

CCTV for Me!

This right here is a project that has directly to do with closed-circuit television, a system also known as CCTV. These sort of cameras are different from, say, broadcast news cameras because CCTV cameras are meant to only transmit to one spot. CCTV cameras are only supposed to be watched by one person, or one group. What this project in this post, “The Observer,” consists of is a personal viewer for everyday citizens allowing them access to any CCTV camera in the country.

Global Game of Intuition

Global Game of Intuition

From the sweet streets of the Czech Republic comes this fabulous learning game made by designer Karel Vranek. This was originally a school project at the Academy of Arts – Architecture and Design Prague under the instructor Ivan Dlabac. This is a game totally based on intuition. This game is a ball, it’s probably totally a ball to play, and it completely lights up. This game goes by the name “Welcome!” and it’s made to teach every little person to get along through play. Check this sphere out.

Espresso For Scootertarians

Espresso For Scootertarians

If you love Vespas and love your coffee, you might like the Vespeo Espresso Machine. Heavily influenced by the iconic people mover, the Vespeo is a combination of tradition, modernity, and Italian flair. It’s technical, mechanical, yet fun to look out. The display even looks like a speedometer; intelligently telling you how to blend the right amount of water, steam, and coffee for that perfect cup every time.

Gemmy Tea Set

Gemmy Tea Set

Here’s a set of bone china carefully carved to look like raw gems. The Ceramic Gems collection consists of a tea set and coffee tumblers. I really like the lids. There’s something distinctively Scandinavian about them yet this was designed and manufactured in India. If I’m going to have a spot of tea with the Queen, I’m doing it on my terms – not out of those frilly sets they use at Buckingham Palace.

Smart Fridge Is Your New Recipe Card

Smart Fridge Is Your New Recipe Card

The Smart Fridge here is for those who have shunted cooking to a hobby and rely more on designer microwave meals. The idea is to give you a fridge that is intelligent enough to come up with a healthy recipe, depending on what you stock in it. Not only that, it guides you with vocal instructions, spoon by spoon, till you dish out the perfect-wholesome meal. A touch interface door glams up the appliance, creating the desire to own a piece that’s futuristic but may not be what you’re looking for!

House Noise

House Noise

All the world’s my Stage, and bottles, tins and glasses are my actors! Forgive the twist in Shakespeare’s famous quote, but it fits apt for the “Stage Speakers”. Fun and contemporary, place any object like an empty glass bottle or a tin on the “Stage” platform and hook it to your iPod. Enjoy weird sound enhancements and discover music vibrations like never before. Surely not for the Bose-types, so party-poopers stay out of here!

Swing Pro Solo Auto

Swing Pro Solo Auto

This rather wildly designed concept car is called the “Swing Beginner” – it’s what’s the start of what’s probably going to be a spectaculalrly fabulous line of Swing cars, this one acting as sort of training wheels for the whole line. It’s designed by Yanchao Wang to act as a solution for the future world of infinite population and zero room for gigantic cars and trucks. Welcome to the future of simply “inside and outside” – Wang’s way of saying we can no longer afford to drive in a car with any more room inside and out than we need.

Illuminate Your Influenza

Illuminate Your Influenza

How would you like to be able to blow into a device and know what you’ve got, no matter what it is, anywhere in your body? We’re not there yet. What we DO have here is a device that, with genetically modified bioluminescent bacteria, can visualize traces of the influenza virus in your body. To do this, you’ve just gotta collect some spit in this special container. In 15 minutes, if the special bacteria inside stop emitting their continuous flow of bioluminescence, you’ve got it.

Romanova Solar Powered Streetlights

Romanova Solar Powered Streetlights

An idea that should’ve been off the ground ages ago: self-sufficient lights on the streets of every city. Natalia Romanova presents this project with the very to-the-point title “Self-Suffieient Streetlights.” Romanova says we only use lights along the streets 20% of the entire day. Pretty accurate, I’d be willing to bet. So what about the other 80%? Solar panel collection. Romanova aims to use the sun to cut on cost, improve sustainability, make the world a better place with hot aesthetics, and keep the world alight until the apocalypse.

Glass Flower Pot

Glass Flower Pot

Botanists have secrets and we must learn them. Did you know some plants perform better when their roots are directly exposed to sunlight? A common example is the popular orchid. Every time I buy one, it dies within weeks. The Life Pot is a clear glass container that shows subsoil growth. That plant’s roots become part of the sculptural element. Don’t worry about breaking it because it’s made from Pyrex glass.
