Ornamental Pluggings

Ornamental Pluggings

Here is a completely refreshing take on the drab power strip! Ornamental almost akin to a Ming classic, the 360° rotating plug sockets are fascinating! Each socket on the Takoyaki has a router function and once you hook in a plug, the rim around comes to life as a nice blue glow. Ideal if you want to use it as a nightlight, because these kinds of power strips, you don’t want to hide anywhere. In fact, you can actually be a show-off and find them a prominent place!

Measure This

Measure This

The Shell is a sleek digital scale sexified with good modern looks. Lift off the Stainless Steel measuring bowl to reveal a large LCD display and simple controls. Rest the upturned bowl on the unit and it’s ready to weigh both liquids and dry foods. A convenient ‘add and weigh’ function also allows multiple ingredients to be weighed in the same bowl during recipe preparation and an auto power-off feature maximizes battery life. So perfect for all my crazy crafting needs, like changing base metals into gold. Hehehe, hahaha, AHAHAHAHA!

No Scratch Watch

No Scratch Watch

This cool concept watch by designer Allan George is basically aimed at the youth who like to wear trendy fashion, but maybe rough with it. Although latest scratch-proof glass materials are used in Omega, Rolex and ilk, but not all brands use this for their entire collection. And a watch with scratches on its glass looks so lame! Allan’s concept simple does away with the glass face and replaces it with a plastic-rubber finish. The colored hands peep out, behind a transparent rim, giving the watch a trendy and easy look!

Cooking Made Efficient

Cooking Made Efficient

The Catalyst is a all-in-one cooking solution designed for the Indian market consisting of a hood, microwave oven, fryer, and cook top. The induction cooking plated slide apart to reveal a fryer for all those delicious Indian foods. All the vapors are captured by the hood above which also happens to be the oven. Quite the efficient design no? I LOVE me some Indian food too but find the fragrant spices to be so strong, my eyes water. That hood better be damn near a vacuum of air.

Musical Deja Vu All Over Again

Musical Deja Vu All Over Again

Way back in history, humans used to stretch magnetized strips of a petroleum derivative and electronically infuse them with audio recordings. The original audio recording playback machine was at least the length of a football field. Until someone noticed that you could spool the “tapes” of recordings into easily potable “compact cassettes.” And it was good. In the 90s, after two failed attempts, audio recordings were being stored in Magical Playbacker 3 boxes or “MP3 Players”. And it was better.

Be Your Own Lighter

Be Your Own Lighter

Are you one of the enlightened few that can play music with an instrument well? If you are, or if you think you are, thank you! I love when people release fabulously constructed strings of notes into the atmosphere for all to hear. Really really! How about you who can stand behind a photo camera and take truly well-crafted pictures? How would you like to employ one of the oft-forgotten most important weapons in the music-players arsenal? The music stand. How would you like to have a light upon it?

Where Is My Seat? Oh, Now I See It

Where Is My Seat? Oh, Now I See It

These days we can choose our own seats over the internet for airplanes and train travel, thus we know exactly where our seat is going to be. At least for that moment we do know. However in a practical scenario, many people don’t check-in online or our memories fail us on the date of travel. Where Is My Seat? is a concept where a pictograph of your seat location is printed onto the boarding pass. All I can say that it’s more helpful than just printing seat 34A, Economy Class.

But Is It Faster Than A Rabbit

But Is It Faster Than A Rabbit

It’s a USB flash drive inspired by a turtle. Just slide the toggle to make the turtle head, I mean connector pop open. Pretty straight forward eh? It doesn’t do anything special. It’s just freaking CUTE. Look at the eyes! Hey, I’d buy it. One question tho; is it faster than a rabbit?

Capture Cleavage Pictures The Legit Way

Capture Cleavage Pictures The Legit Way

Aerial Capture is a digital camera that can capture precious moments of your life from a height of 20 meters above you. Hovering over your personal stratosphere, this quirky cam is attached to a helium inflatable balloon, which strings onto a hand-held reel and trigger. Some naughty boys would love to capture cleavage and I don’t really blame them for wanting an aerial view of the mountains! The only catch is that the camera doesn’t have flash, so sneaky pictures of folks in the dark are a strict no!

Swack On A Backpack Will Ya!

Swack On A Backpack Will Ya!

Necessity is the mother of invention they say, and designer Terence Simmons has firsthand experience with it. Forced to be on crutches for a while, he escaped serious injuries due to a fall he took, when his backpack’s strap got entangled in his crutches. The incident left its mark, and with creative juices on a high….he came up with the Swack! Sweater + Backpack! Revolutionary? No…but functional, cool and handy…YES!

Measure Four Times

Measure Four Times

Welcome to simplicity in measurement. This right here is the “Tutti,” a measuring spoon that has not one, not two, not three, but four measuring spoons on it. The most advanced simplicity in measuring spoons I’ve seen in the past is the set of spoons on a ring. This is better than that. It’s 4 bits of ability in one piece of metal. That’s rockin. Also it looks slick.
