Swanky Bluetooth With A Dash Of Convenience

Swanky Bluetooth With A Dash Of Convenience

If I had to point out the one really good feature in the Aliph Solo Bluetooth Headset, it would be the fact that it doesn’t require separate recharging. Apparently the earpiece is consolidated into the cellphone and charges auto when you hook up your mobile phone for juice. Now plenty of us folks have charging-chores: laptops, phones, MP3 players…get the drift? So one less item to tank up, is a blessing!

Don’t Judge By The Cover

Don’t Judge By The Cover

I read my book everywhere; on the bed, in a chair, on the pot (you do too!), on the park bench… Point is, once engrossed, you really don’t bother about your posture and when that nagging pain in the neck comes visiting, you really wonder why! The Bookmate is a functional cover that protects the book, but can also be converted into a stand by folding out a few indents; encouraging a better posture for you. Although awkward and bulky it’s got 2 things in its favor: illuminating strips that work as light source at night and edges that double-up as bookmarks.

Boxlike Business Interior

Boxlike Business Interior

Welcome to the “Toolbox,” a design interior made for incubating ideas and working in a creative manner efficiently, effectively, and in as lovely an environment as possible. Made specifically to “mediate user plurality and diversity with the coherence of the design concept.” Made of a series of both standard and odd materials such as cork and rubber. It’s all very boxy, as I say.

Good Head for Sitting On

Good Head for Sitting On

Dearest David, thanks for standing around for so long. You know how many times Michaelangelo’s David has been reproduced? Many, many times, perhaps even endlessly. But almost always in full. How useless is a 20 foot tall nude man? If he’s made of iron, quite. How about if we just chop off his head? Well then! That’s something we can use, innit?

Detector VS Black Skin Cancer

Detector VS Black Skin Cancer

Just yesterday I wrote about a lovely tea container by Antonia Haaf, today Haaf’s got a device for us that detects Black Skin Cancer. Wow! It is a gift you receive as a designer when you’ve given the opportunity to work on even as small amount as 2 projects with such a different set of intentions. When you get rid of your skin cancer, have a nice cuppa to celebrate. Or maybe have a cuppa if you detect that black spot as NOT being cancer. How about that?

Rolling Bundle To Park Your Tushy

Rolling Bundle To Park Your Tushy

Although intended for small apartments that demand functional furniture, I don’t see why we can’t include the Zip-Up Chair in mansions. I love the simple methodology used in wrapping up a bundle of oversized upholstered swabs; and encasing them in a zipper sleeve. Zip open, turn down a few swabs and park your posterior onto an impromptu stool. Kitsch and comfy!

Want A 3D Mobile Phone?

Want A 3D Mobile Phone?

With Samsung and company outing 3D televisions for home viewers and China loving 3D newspapers, it’s not too farfetched to picture the technology being used in laptops and mobile phones. Focusing on the use of 3D in cellphones, Petr Kubik has designed this all-in-one-piece that includes the glasses, intuitive stylus and expandable screens. The 3D apps support 3D movies and camera plus allow you to make surreal calls with family and friends that pop outta the screen!

Big Boat Dragovic Yacht

Big Boat Dragovic Yacht

With a name like Vuk Dragovic, one doesn’t need to go very far to find a unique name for any sort of design they’ve made and need to name. However! Dragovic does also happen to be a world-class name-creator too, so the concept you’re about to look at goes by the name “Atreides Yacht” and lives up to the elegance of the letters that title it. And it’s got some radical innovation on it’s side too, hooray! And not just in the greener section of things. It’s got a fully extendable shallow pool that shoots out the back.

Three Dimensional Wrist Communicator

Three Dimensional Wrist Communicator

It’s that time again. It’s time for the Mac. The dude who keeps coming hard with the strangest, wildest, most fantastically cool looking conceptual designs on such a regular basis that I can’t believe he doesn’t already work for a super secret design corporation run by time traveling aliens from outer space. Wait. I’m getting a message from Mac. He can see what I’m typing and is telling me to hush up! Oh jeez! Better just talk about this new design – “Dew”, it’s a conceptual mobile communication device that works in three dimensional projection space.

Glassy Mc Teatipper

Glassy Mc Teatipper

That’s what I’d name this project if I had the idea first. But I didn’t. So you know who gets to name it? Designer Antonia Haaf gets to name it, and name it good: “Tea Time Joe.” It’s what he calls a new concept in teatime, that being a tippy kind of teatime. Just put your teawater and leaves in one end, let the magic happen, and get to tipping! The straining happens in the middle through a fabulous removable strainer. Will you go big, or will you go cup-sized?

A Rule For A Man's Man

A Rule For A Man’s Man

Well here’s something clever and that means I want it! The Leather Ruler works just like any other except there’s a large piece of supple leather to provide the weight and traction necessary when drawing those important straight lines. When you’re done, just roll it up and throw it in your pack. If it seems unnecessary then let us not forget MUJI makes a crap load of money selling items just like this. People would definitely buy it.

Solar Energy, Band-Aids and The iPad

Solar Energy, Band-Aids and The iPad

Those kooky but fun Korean design gurus are at it again. You’d be surprised how hefty the iPad is and that smooth surface is just begging to slip out of sweaty hands so the Band are band-aids you stick all over the back of the iPad to create traction. A little too kooky for ya? How about the Solar Panel Bag – yes a backpack with solar cells arranged into Steve Jobs’ favorite fruit. Let the whole world know you’re an Apple fan.
