Two Holes Are Better Than One

Two Holes Are Better Than One

A small annoyance of mine is having to wait for a sauce or dressing like ketchup to trickle down from the bottom but with the Dual Bottle, my impatience is alleviated. A simple solution would be to always leave the bottle inverted, but I’m way too OCD for that. With the Dual Bottle, there’s no up or down. Just open the end where the condiment goodness is closest to and BOOM (ala Steve Jobs style), food is smothered.

Chemistry Lab Equipments On The Table

Chemistry Lab Equipments On The Table

A look at these bottles and you go…OMG am I in the chemistry lab again? No you’re not, but you may as well re-visit the Pipette Bottles and enjoy them. Only this time you store your oil & vinegar in it and proudly display them on your kitchen counter or dining table. Actually go ahead and store any kinda drippy sauce in them, and use the pipette to measure out the exact quantity of the condiment you want. Not a drop more nor a drop less!

AC On The Blind

AC On The Blind

Blinds on the windows do nothing but hang out there and shade the room from the sun. Say if we were to add functionality to it, what can we include….k, give it some Solar Power, plus add in some engineering tech, and pesto you got the Blind Air Conditioner! An AC that doubles up as blinds and sources green power from the sun. Design-wise it all adds up, but function-wise and scope-wise I’m still on the fence about it. So what’s your take on it?

This Table Be All Crumpled Up

This Table Be All Crumpled Up

Oh yes! A table that started out as a “simple software experiment.” This is exactly the sort of thing that an investigatory exploratory design junkie like me likes to read when discovering a new design. Experiencing the CNC technology was the first aim of this project. In the end, it shot out into outer space where the aesthetically unpromising became the end product, the critique of all other tables became the conclusion.

Wearable Regulation for Children with Autism

Wearable Regulation for Children with Autism

As you might already know reading a post about Autism, one of the most obvious tendencies of children with Autism is to repeat certain actions. These can range from bobbing the head, rocking the body, scratching the flesh, and banging the hand. That’s a small list. What this product tries to do is to take that tendency and aim it at this product. It’s soft, stretchy, and can be tugged, rubbed, squeezed, bitten, etc.. Will it work?

25 Homeopathic Years of Brita

25 Homeopathic Years of Brita

Designer Julien Hadley had the task of branding a gesture marking 25 years of Brita water filters. Hadley chose the phrase “We’ve Got a Plan” to note Brita’s aim to promote a more sustainable approach to consumerism and how people use products. Environmental responsibility! Along with that is this lovely plant plan: “My-oan” – a platform that enables users to grow homeopathic plants on their own, in their own home.

Nike LunarGlide+ Review

Nike LunarGlide+ Review

Nike is renowned the world over for their running shoes so when the LunarGlide+ racked up award after award for product design, I got interested. I’ve never been a runner so this was a golden opportunity to get my feet wet. Thanks so much to Kasey and Demetria for hooking up the sneaks. Hit the jump for my review.

Harley Davidson Circa 2020

Harley Davidson Circa 2020

Somebody pass me a helmut and a time travel ship because if this is what Harley bikes look like in 10 years, I’m so there. Designer Miguel Cotto pays homage to the big road hogs by keeping the large 883cc engine, complete with high revs and roars. The similarities end there. The design is almost tron-like in execution. Check out the wheel hubs. They’re actually giant bearings. I do see glimpses of Harley DNA in the center chassis but seriously, can you image any road warriors riding this?

Little Night Lamp For Sderot

Little Night Lamp For Sderot

It’s not often I see product design mixed with politics because it’s tricky and definitely an invitation to royally f*ck up. However if your ideas are shaped by a politically active environment, there’s a real possibility for brilliance such as the Little Night Lamp For Sderot. The lamp is created from a bomb shelter light switch as a gesture to the citizens of Sderot, Israel who have been living under siege for years.

Posture Perfect with the iTilta Superchair

Posture Perfect with the iTilta Superchair

Chair on wheels, wheelchair that is. The iTilta’s designed by Gu JiaWei to further push the wheelchair into the regular lifestyle of those who have to use it. It is the goal, isn’t it, after all, to make these tools (wheelchairs, artificial arms, legs) as much a part of the body as the limbs that are naturally attached? I think so!

2B2 Changes Faucet History

2B2 Changes Faucet History

Faucets, the untapped design challenge. Is that what you say when you see a wild faucet? This is a wild faucet, one of the wilder ones I’ve seen. It’s whipped up by designer Andrey Bondarenko to effectively change the evolved history of the sink itself. Instead of reflecting the shape and sensibilities of a waterfall or a geyser, as it is with a “normal” tap, this faucet takes on the form of the water as it’s fallen in the round sink. Wild, yes?

KeyPing Grandma Satisfied

KeyPing Grandma Satisfied

The project you are about to behold is called “KeyPing Touch” and it’s made for people who wish to keep an eye on everyone all at once without being overly intrusive or big-brotherish. But I tell you what. There’s no real way to keep an eye on everyone all at once without being totally intrusive… so says I and mine. For all you other people out there, the ones who aren’t bothered by their friend/relative/mate’s unwillingness or inability to “cut the umbilical” -this is a fun little gadget for you!

Many Hues Of Songs

Many Hues Of Songs

What is life without color and what is design without innovation? Addressing the two is the Hélio DAB Radio. The design uses colorful solar Grätzel panels that are transparent and add a bit of psychedelic creativity to the room. The Grätzel solar panels get their color from vegetal ink, upping the green quotient. The LED panel and Speakers compliment the radio and are in sync with the form. It’s the sort of thing we would love to bring home!
