Your Car In 2030

Your Car In 2030

Envisage a futuristic vehicle that draws inspiration from the beautiful and organic shapes of nature and blends it with advanced ec0-technologies, making the cities healthier. Intended for ultra-crowded cities of 2030 and beyond, the Bionic concept car runs on solar energy generated by a see-through polycarbonate roof with attached solar photovoltaic cells.

A Wally Oasis

A Wally Oasis

Thinking about how ecology plays a role in urban spaces is a re-emerging trend in design. The Symbiotic Green Wall takes the idea of wall beyond its dividing role. It provides a vertical system for an entire ecosystem to exist. The wall collects, purifies and redistributes water around the site using natural processes. A digital monitoring system sheds light on water usage and overall health. It even cleans itself with purified water. I would love to see more of these sculptural installations in big cities around the world.

What Pot is This?

So you’d like to relax in your bathroom. Seems pretty reasonable. Do you like flowers? That’s good, because that’s today’s solution to your relaxation problem, and it’s presented by 2-B-2 Architecture.

It's Called Jogging

It’s Called Jogging

Or yogging…apparently you just run. What is the exercise you speak of? You need to get your heart rate up. And not just with a tall glass of coffee. You’ve got to get out there and run around like crazy. But that wont work! You’ve got to have a nice healthy jog to get your body in shape. But your music doesn’t go with the feet moving! Until now! Clip the “Joggo” device on to your shirt and the headphones into your ears and the beats will be keeping you in check in no time flat.

Concerning Wooden Mice

Concerning Wooden Mice

You use a mouse. Even if you have a laptop, you’ve USED a mouse, and when you go to the Apple store, I bet you use one of those giant computers with mice to check your emails. I mean I do that, right? Yes I do. And when I do, I think about how plastic the mouse is. What do I want instead? This lovely piece of design right here: the “AlestRukov” wooden mouse! Plug-n-play!

Are You Green Hanger Savvy

Are You Green Hanger Savvy

Don’t tell me you didn’t get a tad bit influenced by the movie 2012 or seek out the 2012 phenomena? With dark notions like this looming ahead, it really makes me want to do good stuff now, this instant. Stuff like recycling paper and using it in many different forms. One such is the HangSavvy Eco-friendly Recycled Waste Paper Hangers. Stable enough to hold up to 10 kgs of weight and with the same lifespan as the normal steel or plastic hangers. Good quality, reasonable pricing and efficient packaging makes it a winner!

A Very Social Phone

A Very Social Phone

It was about time that someone came up with the concept of a phone that was dedicated to social networking. YD’s resident designer Shane Crozier is on top things and has his finger on the pulse. 31337 (Elite) Phone connects to Facebook and Twitter and hooks up to the contacts to fill up the address book. Usual suspects like camera, speakerphone, music, video and internet functionality have been removed for the sake of functional transparency and ease of use. This minimal phone is good for inbound and outbound calls!

Hang On The Rim

Hang On The Rim

All it takes is a hook-shaped carving in a paint brush to quantify it as an ingenious idea. Something that I’m willing to endorse! I may not be a house-painter but I can foresee the situation of someone getting this itch to scratch his nose (or butt). If he were using the Hanging Brush, then naturally he would just hang it by the rim of the paint can and scratch …. Superb!

The New Clarity

The New Clarity

The Mac. He is back. He’s clear again. He is so clear this time, you’ll just want to get out the windex just to see if the glass is actually there. Two concepts. One is a phone, the other is a desktop computer. Made with the real intention of creating something straight out of a sci fi for the greater good of your eyeballs and future humanity.

Put That Baby in the Trunk!

Put That Baby in the Trunk!

OK all you moms… OK all you dads…! Listen up! It’s time you knew about putting your baby in the trunk! The “Trunk Stroller,” that is. Made by design geniousness in Seoul, this stroller folds down to the space you’ve got left over! And when you need to put the baby in it, it comes back up in a jiffy! Now I’ve got a stroller to stroll my baby in, and when I need it back down, it fits in the trunk of my car with plenty of space left for holiday presents!

Cabinets Aplenty

Cabinets Aplenty

Who’s up for some cabinet design? I am. Let’s do this. We’ve got some flatness, some whiteness, some mirroring, some rounding, and some televisions and speaker equipment placed in there. What do you know! Four objects, one post, one design group: the Art S=4pieR2 sphere, the Mystere Hyde, the Why Not, and of course, the Soul of Pop.

Affair With Notefolio

Affair With Notefolio

Most of my friends get all awestruck and goofy when they lay their hands on the latest netbooks. For me it’s always been an affair with notebooks and paper; a case of old habits dying hard, because I grew up using portfolios and paper books. Stationery essentials like the Notefolio are just my types. It’s a gamut of things: a handy recycled chipboard cover with a note book inside, a folder with an envelope for business cards; plus a strong rubber band that holds it all together. Apt for an Executive Assistant like me!
