Up and Up Watch

Up and Up Watch

The watch you’re about to see right here is called the “Ever Increasing Watch” and it’s designed by none other than the fabulous crew at EleeNo. You know what kind of world we live in. One where you’ve got some sort of phone or computer device with you at all times. Some sort of object with you constantly that’ll give you the time of day whenever you want it. So what’s the point of a wrist watch? Again I say, for the love of the game! In honor of the simplicity offered in the readout on your cellphone, EleeNo offers this watch to engage!

A Porsche for Hauling

A Porsche for Hauling

What do you do when you’ve got a lot to haul, but you don’t want to go down to your local Dodge dealer? How about if you’ve got about 500 pounds of gold you’ve got to move from one place to another? How about diamonds? You can’t go around moving that stuff in a Ford truck! You’ve got to get yourself a PORSCHE! But they don’t come out with Porsche trucks like the kind you want all the time, you know so you’ve got to invent it yourself. That’s what’s going on here!

Friends With The Wind And Sun

Friends With The Wind And Sun

Our dependency on gizmos and gadgets leads us innovate and come up with portable solutions for charging them. Even on a hike in the wilderness, a GPS device holds more prestige than a compass! With The Source is a device that plans on harnessing the solar and wind energy to tank up enough juice for your everyday gadgets. It even incorporates a powerful LED Torch to light up the camping nights. My only concern is the sturdiness of this design. It looks to be pretty easy, but I’m sure you technical guys will have a bone to pick with it.

Furniture for Leaping On

Furniture for Leaping On

Truly it is the law of all children that one must find it his or her duty as a young human to decide the jumpability of each and every piece of furniture in their own environment. Yes! Furniture was mean to be played upon. But lo! It was no designed that way. And so! Here comes a brillaint designer mind by the name of Kaja Osholm Kjølås to lead the way with “Buskas,” a set of furniture to INSPIRE play for all kids.

Volvo Reality, Twenty Fifteen

Volvo Reality, Twenty Fifteen

This car right here is the sassiest little number this side of Volvo, and it’s aiming to be the car that leads every pack. Designer Nouphone J. Bansasine presents his vision for the 4 door coupe, taking the trend for these to be highly sought after, producing here a 4 door sportscar for the year 2015. What’s more? This car was made during an internship Bansasine rolled with at the Volvo Monitoring and Concept Center (VMCC.) What’s that mean? It’s the real deal, honey!

The Boss’s Door

The Boss’s Door

One theory suggests that to keep office efficiency at maximum levels, employees should have minimum personal interaction. Meaning no chit-chats or coffee-breaks together, just emails and IMs! Supporting this theory is the Electronic Office Screen Door that embeds an electronic imaging screen underneath the sheer veneer and above the wood. It has its pros and cons….like you can always display a “Busy In A Meeting” message before that nagging accounts guy wants to come in for bills clarifications. Or that guy who got the promotion can keep rubbing the “New Manager” title in your face!

Designing Erasers

Designing Erasers

Let’s be metaphoric this Monday Morning and discuss how you would re-design everyday objects. As designers I’m sure you must be using pencils and erasers, so let’s just zero-in on erasers for the moment. How would you restyle this synthetic, perfumed piece of plastic so that it not only looks good but works effectively too. One of the things with erasers is that they erase better when they have a sharp edge. So does this mean the Pebble Eraser fits the bill? I think it does…

Underground Cat Bathroom

Welcome to the modern world, cat, no more pooping above the ground for you. Nay! From now on you have your own room to poo. In through the ceiling you shall go! This fantabulous contraption is known as the “Modcat,” and to the future this cat shall go. The top has an opening through which the cat shall go, and inside this bucket of pleasure the cat shall have just enough room to do the business and exit. From there, it’s just a simple flip and grip and you’re on your way to cleaning!

USB Post-it Are Damn Handy

USB Post-it Are Damn Handy

Where is the scribble paper when you need it? Never ever around; and the same thing goes for pen and other stationery items! Not all of us are as organized as the Virgos who have prim-n-proper workspaces. Hence, a USB stick with a notepad to it is an AWESOME idea! Details like a plastic cover to keep the notes contained really impress me. I wonder if this will mean the demise of notepapers, or is this Digilog Memory the second generation already?

Coffee Loving Umbrella

Coffee Loving Umbrella

Try carrying your tall café latté in the rains! One hand full of your stuff, the other has an umbrella….get the drift? The solution is to get a functional Umbrella, like the one designed by Jung-Woo Lee. A convenient coffee-cup rim integrated into the handle solves the issue. I say cheers to more coffee and bring on the rains!

I Carry My Own Streetlights

I Carry My Own Streetlights

In this day and age of multi-functional lifestyles how can we expect fashion to be far behind? Wouldn’t it be tacky for a pair of socks to simply be a garment? We need to rev it up a little, maybe add kinetic theory to it and a pair of bulbs and make it headlights for our feet. Go jogging in the dark or sizzle the Milan Ramps, but the moral of the story is to “Keep on running…baby….oooo…yeah!

Harley Futurism

Harley Futurism

Let’s talk about the future of Harley Davidson. Motorcycles from OUTER SPACE! And what does that mean? Laser cuts. Laser cuts all over the place. Options. Wheels. Great things. All of this under the title “2020 Harley Davidson 1,” designed by Jonathan Russell. There’s other features, like two ways to sit, greatnesses here and there, but the most fabulous of these is the Apple Computers inspired laser-etched perforations in the aluminum which gives translucency enough to let the LED lights underneath shine through.
