Pistol Grip Mug

Pistol Grip Mug

It’s the pistol grip mug on my desk at all times. Filled with coffee and sitting there at all times. Trigger happy designer with a cup full of caffeine ammo, that’s what you’re gonna be with this sassy momma. It’s the “Kill Time Gun Mug” by ChilliChilly. It’s 7.6 oz or 225 ml of fire hot fury. Don’t let the trigger fool you though, this cuppa’s made of porcelain and paint only. The only bullets you’ll be firing is the ones out of your eyeballs when you’ve swallowed your 15th glass of joe from this cannon.

One Crib, All Babies

One Crib, All Babies

One panel, all personalities. That’s sort of the idea with this particular line of furniture that focuses on the panel. It’s called “Muu” and it’s got a “MuuPanel” system working for it. Imagine the luck, them having the same name like that! We’ve got a tiny bit of info on their Sam Collection – premium, colorful, and fresh. It’s all right inside this modern hipster style furnishings age we’re in. Right in there. I expect some amazing rock and roll screenprint posters on the wall and all natural food in the fridge for sure.

Power Around My Neck

Power Around My Neck

Most photographers use a sturdy camera strap while clicking pictures and here’s an idea that wants to capitalize on it. This is done by making the strap solar-savvy! Meaning, adding thin solar films across the width of the strap, so as to harness solar energy when out on the field. Aptly christened the Solar Camera Strap, it’s a neat idea; when we can have solar panels on backpacks and what not, then why not on a camera strap!

Making It Easy To Communicate With Grandma

Making It Easy To Communicate With Grandma

If it’s not the technology, then it’s the size of the gadget that some senior citizens find challenging. Touch interfaces are not necessarily friendly to arthritis fingers. The IC Social Communication Tool is a project that Mikael undertook when he realized his grandmother was having a tough time coping with emails, chats and video calls over the internet. He devised the IC to be the perfect medium for electronic communication.

Best Of Machine And Digital

Best Of Machine And Digital

The Mechanized Digital Watch features a digital font but manipulates it to function as a “mechanized” number because the elements of each digit physically move to create numbers. Every digit is composed of 7 panels and to create a number, panels on the watch face recess revealing contrasting sidewalls. Thus creating the outline of a digit and a whole lot of fun!

Food Storage Orchestra

Food Storage Orchestra

What better way to store your gobs and gobs of food than with a full band? This is the “Food Symphony” by Chow Pei Huan, Ho Wen Chi, and Chua Kai Ren, designing conceptually for Electrolux. In a way that, as far as I know, has never been done before, this big box can store food, and store it well. In individual storage units with adjustable temperature settings it stores, sensing the integrity of the food inside as it does so. This is the sort of thing you’ll wonder how you lived without.

Large Lovely Shipyard Taiwan

Large Lovely Shipyard Taiwan

This project goes by the title “Shipyard Taiwan.” As you probably have already guessed, it’s a Taiwanese shipyard, one that’s designed, planned, and visualized by Motion Code Blue. Built onto and into an existing u-shaped hall and production building for motor yachts, this project aims to add an office building, green and recreational spaces, and a showroom. And in the vein of near-impossible design requirements the world over, the commissioner asks MCB to give this project “landmark-like characteristics.” It’s sort of like saying “make it godly, please.”

Chaos Theory For Books

Chaos Theory For Books

How do you arrange your bookshelf? Fat to thin, tall to short? Horizontal, vertical….so many ways to do one thing; filling up the bookshelf! On my shelf chaos theory rules; no matter how neatly I arrange it, the order of books get all jumbled up after I’ve pulled out a couple for reading. “Need Not Arrange Anymore” brings art to the way we pile up books. A neat looking shelf with tons of attitude!

Dirty Linen Goes Straight To The Closet!

Dirty Linen Goes Straight To The Closet!

The notion of dumping laundry in a basket and then taking it out on laundry-day will probably be redundant in the future. All you will need to do is hang your clothes in a specialized closet and await molecular technology to do its thing. The Clean Closet is your laundry basket, washing machine and drying cabinet – all rolled into one. Using its tech, it scans clothes for stains etc and removes it, freshens it (de-odorizes), and that too without using water.

Memory Clip-on

Memory Clip-on

Although I find hanging my USB stick around my neck quite alright, I wouldn’t mind if it came as a clip-on. Something that looked like this Metro USB Clip would be perfect; slip it securely on a pocket. The added advantage of auto backup on second drive, sliding feature and color changeable shells, transforms it from a regular stick to something different.

Beer Energy

Beer Energy

There’s a time before a meal when some people get prepared, get super hungry, get so fantastically ready to eat. This time is called the “appertivo time,” and during this time people drink alcohol. They drink beer. They have a good time. Carlos Zanotti Cavazzoni of Raver Studio had an amazing idea. Why not signify this pre-meal energy with light? How about putting that light in the base of a glass for beer? Fabulous! Completely fabulous and beer-sexy.

Wood Yacht Fantasy

Wood Yacht Fantasy

I almost titled this post “Orange Yacht Fantasy” because the redness in the seats throughout this fabulous ship. It really brings out this yellow tones in the wooden decks, but then I realized, yes, they are wood. And it’s totally sexy. Sexy like a boat is sexy. This is the “Sentori 50 L”, a 50 feet flybridge motor yacht. Its length is 15.3 meters, its beam is 5 meters, its displacement is 18 tons, and it’s got so many features that you’ll be swimming in em. Or you would, but you’ll be on a YACHT.
