Dial W For Water

Dial W For Water

You don’t have to dial any alphabets for this faucet to work, but you do need to set the duration for the flow via the dial. The thought behind this dial-connection is of course eco-consciousness. A better style than those push button taps, where one push gets you enough water to just wet your hands and nothing else!

So dial wisely…5, 10, 15 seconds…or more!

A Place for Your Lightsaber

A Place for Your Lightsaber

So you’ve got about 500 gaming controllers, all of them all over the place. Am I right? What do you do with them? Do you wrap them up, push em back into the drawer? Tie them up together, wrap em up, tangle em up? Unwrap those thangs! Get em out here! Let’s see em! Because you know what? They were designed to be used, but they were also designed to be beautiful. I’m of the opinion that if you’re one of them “gamers”, you should let that title hang out there, flappin in the wind. Let’s look at this thing here.

Do It for The Birdies

Do It for The Birdies

Park benches are a thing I’ve seen innovated upon not nearly enough. I must admit that when it comes down to it, a seat in a park is a seat in a park, and metal + wood has served this world kindly for many years. However! There is someone who wants more! The common park bird. Those little tweeties they say hey, we want some more interaction here, we want to be even closer to those friendly humans always feeding us bread crumbs and whatnot, we love em!

Eggy Furutistic Wheels

Eggy Furutistic Wheels

It’s the egg on wheels. Inspired directly by Peugeot egg-car, GM’s P.U.M.A, Toyota’s I-real, Honda’s U3-X personal vehicle, and of course, my favorite, a penguin! The “Gentoo” concept car takes its form inspiration from the Gentoo penguin, a cute and lovely and environmentally friendly little thing. The idea of this car is just that, to be cute, to be really nice to look at, and to be nice to the environment: the Gentoo uses no fossil fuels at all.

Nurturing A Digital Flower

Nurturing A Digital Flower

There are benefits to nurturing this digital flowerpot called Bionic Humidifier. As you guessed it, proper care (regular top-ups of water) will ensure a healthy environment for your space. Tardy persons will be greeted with a dead, limp digital flower, which would have otherwise been blooming and humidifying the room!

You Can Not Escape Watch

You Can Not Escape Watch

Look at that face. That’s a face you cannot escape. Looks like of like a labyrinth doesn’t it? Actually it’s based more around the swinging of the Earth around the Sun, and the Moon around the Earth, and the bird flying around my head. GET OUTTA HERE YA BIRD! And it looks so nice! It’s got no numbers, no hands, but it’s got a time about it, doesn’t it? Look at it for a moment, and you’ll see quite easily how you’re gonna know where you are in this continuum. And decide you must, how to serve yourself best: black leather or steel mesh!

Getting All Square with Coke

Getting All Square with Coke

Alright eco-force! Get ready! It’s time to turn Coca Cola into…whaaa? An Earth-friendly means of distributing 20oz of soda! Coke’s always been a sort of futuristic thinking brand, but this would be a big fat huge giant leap forward in the right direction if I do say so myself. It’s a design for a much more reasonable, smart, ergonomic, and gosh darnit, it just looks lovely. It’s so green, it’s 100% plant based. It’s made out of greens! And it’s much more stackable. And cooler!

Turn That Frown into a Seat

Turn That Frown into a Seat

Or more specifically, a small armchair. Designers at Sand & Birch Luxury Design have designed this lovely little thing by the name of “Smile.” S&B pride themselves in being known as designers who take a special amount of time and effort in choosing their shapes and materials so as to create not just seats, but sculptural furniture. With this Smile chair, they took a stab at clashing what they find great in both fullness and compact design. Smoothness, niceness, a big set of chompers.

Running Out Of USB Ports?

Running Out Of USB Ports?

One of the limitations on notebooks is the lack of USB ports in proportion to the number of devices we would like to hook up. An easy remedy these days is the USB Hub, but YD won’t be YD if we showcased run-of-the-mill solutions! So here’s the Infinite USB – an alternative plug on devices that kinda acts like a tag team. The design speaks for itself, so no point elaborating, however what we can do is talk about its effectiveness and limitations. For starters I don’t think we may be able to tag too many devices one behind the other.

Helmets for Your Brainskull

Helmets for Your Brainskull

How many helmets does it take to protect a brainskull? One. One helmet is going to save your life one day. It’s the difference between a hard skull and a soft one, and I think you know what I’m trying to say. But I know you’re also concerned with fashion. Fashion over death, we live in that world, make no mistake. So even though these helmets aren’t made exclusively to make your head look nice, they’ve got that going for them too!
