In Your Face Lap Times!

In Your Face Lap Times!

Rather than using expensive, sensitive, hi-tech hardware (like a head-up display or mini lens-projector), Jun Yin’s Viewpace goggles offer a simple extension of a timer for swimmers to track their lap times. The extension is slim and lightweight yet rigid enough to stay intact during rigorous underwater movement. While there is a level of resistance it creates in relation to hydrodynamics, this is negligible compared to the current method of stopping entirely to check a stopwatch located at the edge of the pool!

Washing with Air

Washing with Air

Air Wash is a revolutionary way to clean garments using NO water and NO detergent! The eco-friendly design captures, compresses and converts CO2 into its liquid form which has the unique natural ability to penetrate and remove stains and dirt. Not only saving energy and freshwater during the wash cycle, there’s also no need to tumble dry! Once the wash cycle is over, the door automatically opens and the CO2 liquid instantly evaporates, leaving clothes fresh and dry.

Wheel to the Rescue

Wheel to the Rescue

The RollEvac military vehicle concept uses biomimicry to aid in time-sensitive rescue and evacuation operations in combat situations. Inspired by the golden wheel spider, which curls its body into a wheel shape and rolls down sand dunes as a method of escape, the RollEvac maneuvers in an upright position, rolling over terrain with spring-loaded legs for traction. Inside, passengers are balanced and protected by the armored exterior while being transported to safety.

No Knobs, No Problem!

No Knobs, No Problem!

The Little Twist Faucet is just that: a twist on the bathroom fixture that focuses on minimalism and functionality! Rather than knobs and handles that become grimy and damaged over time, the design features a single spout-shaped key situated directly beneath the water flow. This unique placement ensures the key is always rinsed clean and makes it easy for users to wash their hands without soaping up the handles or contaminating their hands with a dirty knob. DO WANT!

The Perfect Day Boat

The Perfect Day Boat

With a worth of almost $3 million, the Riva Rivale 52 means more bang for your buck in the form of expert craftsmanship, the highest of high-end quality, aesthetic sophistication, and lux interior digs! The Rivale features two double cabins, separate crew quarters, and two powerful MAN 1,100 engines launching it to a cruising speed of 36 knots. Despite its size, that’s fast enough for wake-boarding and water-skiing, both of which are included. The next time you’re in the Mediterranean, you can take it for a spin here!

Well-Balanced Lighting

Well-Balanced Lighting

You won’t find any springs, hinges or screws on the Triad lamp, but that doesn’t mean it’s not flexible. The minimalistic design rests on a rounded base and uses a system of weights that can be removed or replaced to balance at the user’s desired angle. Its elongated LED is a continuation of the lightweight, hallow tube that forms its seamless Y structure. At once futuristic and sophisticated, it’s a perfect interactive addition to the modern office space.

Solar Fun In A Sail

Solar Fun In A Sail

If I have to sum up the innovative quotient in the Kira Yacht, then it has to be the lead in the keel of the boat, which is designed to become a giant battery charger thanks to the solar cells in the sail. 40-meter Sail Yacht allows the owner to live in complete comfort and with zero carbon footprint.

The Thinnest of Thin Timepieces

The Thinnest of Thin Timepieces

The Titanium EDGE is characterized by minimal aesthetics and high precision. Housing a wafer-thin jeweled analog quartz movement of just 1.1mm, it is one of the slimmest titanium watches in the world with an overall thickness of only 4mm! The ultra slim calibre floats between sapphire glass crystals, supported by a skeletal framework. The contoured matte case is machined from a single piece of titanium and features carbon fiber details for a sporty look that’s complimented by a sleek golf-patterned leather strap. Sorry righties!
