Considering a Slice of Cake

Considering a Slice of Cake

Yay let’s have a party! I’d eat cake every day if I could! I remember when I first went to college, I ate icecream every night. Designers at WAGAii are considering how to cut the cake. Really! Each box of Petals consists of a single plastic flower. With it, you can cut a cake perfectly into 3, 4, 6, 12, 5, 7, 8, 9, or 10 pieces. I didn’t get lost in there! There’s two ways to cut! So many options, one single flower of plastic.

Washing Machine Divides and Conquers

Washing Machine Divides and Conquers

I want this in my home NOW. We all know step 1 in caring for your clothes is to properly wash them but who can be bothered with the whole separate and sort bit? Technically you should sort by color first, then fabric. That all adds up to multiple loads, some of which may not be full which makes you an evil water waster. The Individual Washer concept is an upright washing machine with 3 compartments to sort and launder your clothes together without worry about color bleeding or bleaching. Now I’m looking at my washing machine with contempt.

Replicating Guitar Reality

Replicating Guitar Reality

I would like, if I may, to take you… on a strange journey. Actually on a weird, wild, perhaps futuristic guitar trip. What we’re dealing with here is an electric guitar that the designer reports has all the pros of electric sound with none of the downsides of a non-analog. Pickups and frets with digital imputs which work on a MIDI-signal that’s adaptable to replicate any guitar and amp setup. And what’s weird about that? No strings – but your fingers wont believe it.

Deep Sea Exploring

Deep Sea Exploring

Fluke is a diving robot designed for the deep abyss. The data collected serves to deepen our understanding of the ocean as an ecosystem. The research probes are equipped with flexible, pressure-resistant carriers suitable for holding various sensors in order to prepare for the respective missions. Extremely effective and featuring reduced energy consumption, the low-complexity drive system concept is based on the movements of a fish and can be manufactured affordably.

Over the Land and Through the Port

Over the Land and Through the Port

Look at that port! More on that later. This concept vehicle is the OEX-B, the Overland Expedition type B. Overland, basically meaning across land exclusively, describes where this truck shall go, and sightseeing is what its passengers shall do. Made for tourist travel, is what it is. For the best tour ever, with the most eyes directed towards YOU. Because there’s no way in HECK there’s going to be a truck like yours on the road when you’re cruzin in this bad boy.

Projecting With OO

Projecting With OO

Built from semi monocoque carbon fiber, the durable OO wireless projector is a part of the GEO series from designer David Riesenberg. As he explains, the projector displays high definition (1080p) data via WiFi or internal SSD storage and works independently from any wire for up to 3 hours. It does rely on its internal Li-Ion battery for some support but hooks up to any power source (via a single wire), should the need arise.

Getting A Drip On Light

Getting A Drip On Light

The Ring-ge-roo Light shuttles between innovative, unique and kitsch! It definitely takes the sting out of a hospital drip, which is loathsome yet essential. The uniqueness lies in the way the design uses LED and water for effectively refracting light and creating an eccentric ambiance. I wouldn’t mind hanging this off my arm; just to get some special effects I’d use colored water, as recommended by the designer.

Revenge Of The G-Spot Mouse

Revenge Of The G-Spot Mouse

Its International Women’s Day and its befitting that I confuse you guys with Andy Kurovets’ Maze Of Time. There is a connection between the two… you had fun at the expense of the female anatomy and now it’s time to pay for those silly smirks! The Maze Of Time watch uses colors in a kaleidoscopic way to represent the time. So when you see a chaotic yellow line below, it’s actually the number “1”. Blue is the number “2”, red color stands for “3”, and “4” corresponds to the green etc. Kinda TokyoFlash-esque and time to get your grey cells working!

Lovely Globey Ironing

Lovely Globey Ironing

I know when you think Futuristic, you think Ironing. I know that when you drew (or draw) pictures of the future with crayons, you made sure those space-people had nice, no-wrinkle shirts on, right? Right! So what we need here is Adam Wendel’s “Infinity Iron.” It is an iron for the future. For sure. With its interactive nature and unique form, it will make the world a flatter place, with great skill and aesthetically pleasing form.

Lamp Swingy Magnetive

Lamp Swingy Magnetive

Hello there to you, mister eclipse. So nice to see part of you today! This lamp right here is called the “Nissyoku”, and it is inspired by just that fabulous lunar event, the solar eclipse. Join me, if you will, in exploring all the ways you might use its special swiveling pieces held together with magnetics, magic, and wonder. This is a unique lamp, if I do say so myself.

Entertain Yourself: Jamo A 804 Speakers

Entertain Yourself: Jamo A 804 Speakers

In part 1 of our Entertain Yourself series we took a look at the Sony BRAVIA NX800 3D HDTV. It’s our pick for amazing picture quality, industrial design, and packs a wallop of future proof technologies to take you far beyond 2010. Tho the built-in speakers are a wonder in themselves we wanted dedicated speakers. Last year we came across the Jamo A 804 and have been in love ever since.

A Giraffe Fork And A Monkey Spoon

A Giraffe Fork And A Monkey Spoon

I’m suffering from cute overload because this concept is just too… well, cute! The Children’s Cutlery and Dinner Set (they can do better than that) attempts to tie in the joys of eating with a bit of education. Kids can learn about animals while training to use flatware. Where’s the adult version huh? I want lions, panthers, bears, and a platypus. Yea a PLATYPUS. I want the plate to be a training stage for real manly eating – a Mortal Combat dining experience if you will.

No Excuse For Bad Oral Hygiene

No Excuse For Bad Oral Hygiene

At most it only takes 10 minutes to go thru a proper oral cleaning routine but many of us are guilty of skimping out. You know who you are. They have devices that do all the work now so there’s no excuse but in this immediately gratifying lifestyle we always want the easy way out so the Steward Oral Care system is here to save the day.
