Two Headed Faucet and Filter

Two Headed Faucet and Filter

You’ve seen them, those giant honking water filter additions for your sink. The ones that look like a big egg at the end of your elegant faucet head. Well those days are over! Here is something lovely and new. Two faucet heads, one faucet. And best yet, there’s a new filter involved too – the “carbon block” – eliminating odors, residues, and chlorine. Will it pass your interior design fashion test?

All-In-One Credit Card

All-In-One Credit Card

Quite a few of us use multiple credit cards and every time one card expires, its plastic adds to the trash. So do the numerous receipts that we accumulate after swiping our CC. The fundamental of the One Card Electronic Card is quite simple; it wants to eliminate the trash (and resolve issues like identity theft via discarded expired CCs) by proposing to be this all-credit-cards-in-one device. On one end of the gadget is a Memory Card Slot that will help the user upload their various CC Details.

Alternate E-Book

Alternate E-Book

I am a voracious reader but I must confess that I prefer paper to the E-Books. However I won’t let my bias get in the way of showcasing the Bibliofile Electronic Book Reader. This one’s a nifty reader that uses page-turning gestures to generate the power necessary to update an e-paper display. The display supports something called the Active Reading margin which features apps like dictionary and word games that make reading fun without distracting much.

A Real Lifesaver

A Real Lifesaver

SOS Rescue Lifesaver Ring according to me is a completely well thought-out concept. It’s got GPS embedded into the ring that comes into play once the ring hits the water. The sea-water also helps generate electricity in the ring to power an in-built heater belt. This lifebelt will keep the victim warm and hopefully delay hypothermia. The rescue-ring also has compartments that can store small supplies of water and food. All these features collectively increase the chances of survival of a person lost at sea.

Rolling Down The Hill

Rolling Down The Hill

eRinGo is predictably this rotund vehicle that can go from a one-wheel car to a three-wheeler, depending upon the deep curves you wish to take. The main central wheel balances the car while in motion, and its panels house the electric motors and other machinery of the car. The two-seater has two steering wheels, allowing either of the drivers to take control. Naturally when one steering is being used, the other gets locked. Two smaller-side wheels get deployed intuitively to stabilize the car when parking or hitting the curves.

This Traffic Light Is Always Green

This Traffic Light Is Always Green

Now here’s a creative design that is not only Green, but also cost-effective. Solar Traffic Light has been designed to include Discolor LED (Light Emitting Diode) technology, essentially hosting all the three colors of the lights within a single unit. Red, Amber and Green all together! The lights source power from the Solar Panel on top of the unit, which is elegantly designed as a hood. Quite Brilliant!

Dogs and Cats on the Internet

Dogs and Cats on the Internet

This is a project about the future. The future of pets. Dogs and cats, mostly. It’s a harness. On this harness is a bunch of information: GPS location, vaccinations, and medical information. With these tidbits, enter the online experience: communication with fellow pet owners becomes a whole new level of creepy / excellent with realtime pet updates.

So My Fork Makes Me Feel Guilty

So My Fork Makes Me Feel Guilty

Statistics in books make me just totally fall asleep. What this projects aims to do is to add another page to the three dimensional world of awareness. “What if this kind of information crawled off the page and seeped into the products that surround us?” That’s what Nadeem Haidary aims to explore. The first image you’ll see is of a fork whose prongs each represent the calories each capita consumes. Frightening?

reNEW Your Charge

reNEW Your Charge

I love designs that are misleading. Kinds that look like one thing but actually function as something else. Take the case of this reNEW Solar Battery Charger. It looks like this neat decorative frame that hangs on your window (via the suction cup) or sits pretty on a table. In reality it’s a solar charger for your re-chargeable batteries. Slide the batteries down the back of the frame, into the protective charging pouch, and when it’s all juiced up, pluck it out from the bottom.

Control Your Tea Strength

Control Your Tea Strength

Ignoring the pun in the name Fall Tea Kettle; let me go straight ahead and tell you what’s so cool about this concept. Due to its transparent glass body, you can choose the strength of your brew based on visual judgment. Whilst the water is boiling and the leaves brewing, based on the color of the drink, you can easily slide up the tea strainer from the pot and maintain the strength of your tea. The kettle comes complete with its heating element at the base, and the niche at the bottom keeps the pot grounded safe on it.
