Radiator Mug For Cold Hands

Radiator Mug For Cold Hands

There is a reason why this coffee mug is called the Radiator Mug, the bottom fins (called heat sinks) take inspiration from the radiator mechanics found within the PC or an engine, to keep things cool. Likewise these ceramic fins eliminate the need for a handle and keep your hands cool while holding a steaming cuppa coffee/tea.

Only Photogenic Pictures Please

Only Photogenic Pictures Please

At times it’s the photographer’s fault that your picture came out weird and at times you’re plain ugly! Ha! So scrutinize and be in control over which picture of yours is groovy… So, Are you camera-shy? Not with this funky digital camera that has two separate sections, one is the Lens part and the other the screen. Both stick together via magnets, but when someone wants to click pictures, the screen part detaches and is kept with the subject and the clicked shot comes over to the screen via wireless USB.

Happy Rested Feet

Happy Rested Feet

One of the coolest things you can do for your feet is to pamper them. A little bit of TLC never hurt. This is why we have been cajoling you folks to rest them a while on the Webble Active Footrest or better still treat them to a good massage. I’m sure there is no dearth of good foot massagers in the market, but the Foot Massager by designer Xiaoxsi has taken my fancy because it’s modeled similar to the Webble, only difference is the two counter-rotating massagers and heating options.

Un Capsize Able

Un Capsize Able

The indestructible car! Inconceivable! As one might think, there’s no real such thing as a completely safe way of auto-mobiling around the Earth. That goes double, triple, 10x as much for people who use rally racing as an excuse to drive insanely fast around a treacherous death trap of a track. But there’s such a thrill! That’s why designers are here to design safety measures for the crazy at heart. What’ve we got here? Impact resistance, a self-righting system, and pit climbing features.

How to Keep The Nose

How to Keep The Nose

How much do you appreciate the photos you have? The videos you’ve filmed yourself? How about your collection of old smells? What do you mean they don’t have that!? I’ll tell you who has that: Kawamura Ganjavian. In his design, the “Scenter,” Ganjavian owns smell. How else do you plan on keeping the smells you’ve grown accustomed to once you can’t go to the places where you smelled the smells? You gotta have little jars, and in the jars, big smells.

A Knee-t Crutch on Wheels

A Knee-t Crutch on Wheels

Ohh that is clever. This is a project whose main function is to get you around in two kinds of style. One prerequisite: your leg has to be broken. What the weird!? Or if you want to fake it just to use such a wild and wonderful design, well that’s your own business I suppose. What this design, the “Stryder,” does, is act as both a one-legged crutch AND as a knee-standing scooter. It’s a transformer!

Breathe Fresh Even In Smoke Emergency

Breathe Fresh Even In Smoke Emergency

It may sound as a random fear to some, but the Uphar Cinema Case makes me shudder at the thought of asphyxiation, smoke and fire. No one can really tell when things can go wrong and a simple trip to the movies turns bad. Only if we can equip ourselves with economical, functional, countertop aids like the Firescuba. A simple design using cardboard and carbon filter, it cups your mouth and nose to facilitate easy breathing (through smoke) till help arrives. Sometimes small things like this make the difference between life and death.

Kettles in Detail

Kettles in Detail

Folks at Product Tank have redesigned the kettle for many reasons but the focus still remains on easy carrying and filling. Let me get into the specs of this particular design, it’s got an attached lid that flips out and is used as a mechanism to help fill the kettle. The multiple hand grip positions make it easy to carry, fill and pour the water. A hybrid between the traditional and jug handled design; this kettle provides multiple grip points and has thick insulated walls.

The Hanging Fetish

The Hanging Fetish

What fetish do you have? Come on be honest about it. I know of a designer who has a fetish of designing stuff that hangs…but honestly it’s really cute stuff. Like the last time I showcased his Hanging Tea, which we all appreciated. So does ID also include novelty stuff like this cute Hanger Dog? Only thing with this prop is that it’s not restrictive to teabags, you can hang your keys around its neck, and it sits sweetly around the edge of your cup, frames etc. I think I have a “cute stuff fetish”, what about you?

For When You're Up There

For When You’re Up There

Do not fall down! This is for staying up! I’m always for more extension ladder accessories, especially if they mean I can bring as much paint up there as I can at once. The design your about to look at not only innovates on the bucket, it innovates on the rug. Lots more space on the bottom, lots more space on the top. Light, sturdy, and above all, the magic word: functional.
