Double Door Knob Use

Double Door Knob Use

TIBOU is the first collection of luxury hardware developed just for kid!. The primary function of handles and knobs is to open a door or drawer, but kids often double them as a hanger to place their jacket or a bag. The object loses its main function and it becomes difficult even impossible to open the door. To account for this duality, all the elements of the TIBOU collection present a small hook on their front face, giving the child a perfect place to hang their belongings without hampering the opening of the door or drawer.

The Monkii Bars are a lightweight and ultra-portable suspension-training tool. They are the sort of bars that you can carry anywhere and pack in a quick workout routine. No longer restricting you to a gym, the suspension training system is stored inside each baton, including 18′ of super-strong Spectra line, and a simple to use adjuster. Inspired by the school Monkey Bar system, the physical challenge is too much of fun!

Cute Baby Popsicle

Cute Baby Popsicle

Love this Popsicle Baby Thermometer for infants. The intuitive shape makes them what to lick it and put it in the mouth. The exact reason why this concept will work! Kudos for an intelligent solution, what do you think?

Story of ‘Mr. Up’ and ‘Mr. Down’

Story of ‘Mr. Up’ and ‘Mr. Down’

There is a very inspirational story behind the creation of the Legacy Machine N°1 Xia Hang Watch by MB&F. It all began when the Legacy Machine N°1 was conceived by Maximilian Büsser, the force behind the enchanting MB&F Watches. Daydreaming how he would radically design a three-dimensional machine for the wrist, Max dreamt of including Eiffel Tower and Jules Verne to its design.

Everyday, 6 million people travel by airplanes globally. With such large numbers, the probability of medical emergencies during flights are also very high. For this reason, the flight attendants are trained and certified for administering emergency first aid mid-flight before expert care can be availed to the affected person. The ‘e+ emergency patch’ is a compact system designed to diagnose conditions to help in accurately administering first aid to inflight heart attack scenarios.

A Pinch of Life

A Pinch of Life

Salt – the one ingredient that can make or break your signature dish! Understandably, this is why the Pinch was the first product ever launched via Kickstarter. It is the drama and experience of adding ‘a pinch of salt’ to the dish that makes it exciting. In its conceptual stage, we loved and supported the Pinch; now when it’s the real deal…we want to share its story with you.

Phone Sharing

Phone Sharing

International roaming or renting a phone service for a trip abroad can be quite a tiresome process. This is especially true when you have a locked phone and can’t use an international SIM with it. The Public Mobile Phone System is much like the share-a-bike system, where you have a communal pool of phones, waiting to be rented. Use and return them back to the rental kiosk, when you’re headed back home. Problem solved!

On My Fingertips

On My Fingertips

Love the idea of my index finger serving as a phone and the Nokia FIT. Hands-free Headphones is all about that! Crafted from soft silicone and flexible rubber, the phone is waterproof and has basic functions of texting and talking. Notifications are received through vibrations and the ergonomic design makes all the buttons accessible. Take it along for a dip in the pool or keep it wrapped around the finger, as the phone is extremely lightweight.
