Sexy Steel Case For iPhone

Sexy Steel Case For iPhone

When compared to my leather Plain-Jane Capdase iPhone Case, the Sheet Metal iPhone Case looks smoking HOT!. Thankfully this is not one of the YD staples of being a concept, yes it’s available for purchase! Sleek Steel on the outside is combined with silicon padding for the innards and clever cutouts tackle wireless signals and heat emissions. Only dilemma is that with the iPhone I opted for a candybar style, this cover makes it an awkward flip, if I walk the middle-path…apparently you needn’t flip open to talk.

Move! Your Butt And Stuff

Move! Your Butt And Stuff

Dual functionality is the name of the game and if you add in words like “green”, ecofirendly” or “recycle”, the game gets better. What we have here is a simple enough solution to a problem that might not exists;but let’s just go with the flow for a moment. Scenario is that you move often and/or don’t have the resources to furnish your sparse accommodation, so you probably need boxes that can double up as furniture. So when you’re not packing stuff into “Move!”, just rearrange its body to become this seat to park your butt.

The Whole Childhood Made of Wood

The Whole Childhood Made of Wood

What’s a good plate with nothing on it? No, what’s a bunch of good food without a plate? What’s a good baby without a single bed to sleep upon? How about when that baby gets a bit older, what happens then? Buy more furniture for them? Heck no! You take that crib you’ve got there and you transform it into a whole bunch of little person friendly bits of fun! Complete with another bed for that ever-elongating person.

Organic Lampstick

Organic Lampstick

This is a lamp with a dimmer. Does it look like a dimmer lamp you’ve ever seen before? It reminds me of a lamp I saw in an abandoned house once; it moved up and down smoothly from the ceiling based on how much you pulled down or touched up. Well what do you know, the lamp we’re talking about right now does something very similar! Instead of the lamp moving, this, the “Etirement” lamp, has easily adjustable intensities of light.

These Are Not Animal Balls

These Are Not Animal Balls

They are called “Aniballs.” There is a relatively large difference between these golf ball creatures and the testicles of a cow. You can hit them all with a golf club, but only about 6 out of 8 will result in anything more than a kickback to the face. Aniballs! They come in cow, sheep, donkey, pig, goat, and dog. With four feet, a face, and a flight plan. All you need is a club, gravity, and a place to put the ball.

For The Love Of Coffee

For The Love Of Coffee

I think I’ve confessed one too many times that tho I’m a coffee addict, I just can’t spend too much time nurturing it. There are actually freaks like me who LOVE instant coffee and don’t want to do the grinding-percolating routine. Which is why I simply adore this ceramic-glass fusion called Coffee Set. It’s a cup with a slotted bottom that holds in just right amount of coffee powder and water, for you to stir the mixture with the handle. Yup no spoons required! The design gets even more interesting with the saucer, which has a missing bottom!

 Becoz I Like To Move My Sofa Around

Becoz I Like To Move My Sofa Around

Long before it became a fad to hire interior designers to do up your rooms, humble folks just rearranged their furniture to give their home a new look. Times and trends now dictate that either we use innovative stuff that never gets obsolete or keep hiring the cash-drain! Fitting into the former category is the EQUALIZE Multifunctional Furniture Modules; a set of three pieces that can be configured in your free-fancy way. Create sofa, couch, folding table, flower or fruit vase!

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.
