Welcome to 55 Blair Road

Welcome to 55 Blair Road

A terrace house done in a Heritage Art Deco style, with light open plan living and a nice balance betweeen nature and contemporary living. Fresh. To me, the best part about this house is that it’s a renovation. We’ve got no “before” pics here, but I doubt it compared at all to this magnificent living space. After that it’s gotta be the gigantic light space dividing the two sections of the house, wrapped in aluminum wall cladding absolutely pouring light into the entire abode. Just lovely.

Recycle Origami

Recycle Origami

Imagine putting all your unwanted trash papers into this recycle bin, and it spits out a trendy trash bin or stool made out of that same discarded paper. Call it Origami magic or Paper Mache wonders, but I think it’s an awesome game plan. The paper dumped into the Waste Paper Recycle Trash Bin gets mixed with “668 polyvinyl alcohol environment cement”, and is compressed into the trash-bin form.

Metal Textile Combo Breaker

Metal Textile Combo Breaker

Emi Schenkelbach’s got the combos. She thought to herself one day, hmm, what would be awesome to do today? It would be awesome to develop a new unconventional method for combining metal and textile! That’s it. – And she’d be right. That is definitely an awesome thing to be thinking about doing. Focusing on the contrast between the softness and the rigidity of the two separate elements, a grid was constructed in order to combine them. And it was good.

Getting All Mothy Up In Here

Getting All Mothy Up In Here

What in the world is that. Is that a boat? Is that a flying dirigible? Nay! It’s a moth! A moth is a kind of small, FAST, single-handed sailboat made for racing. Originated some time in the early 1900′s in North Carolina, the classic Moth can be any number of things: skiff, pram, scow, dinghy, basically anything within the restrictions of 75lbs, 72 Sw Fr sail area, and a maximum beam of 60 inches. What David Valham has done here is to make a Moth into a superior flying machine that’s riding on the edge of boatness, appearing to nearly take off!

Two Headed Faucet and Filter

Two Headed Faucet and Filter

You’ve seen them, those giant honking water filter additions for your sink. The ones that look like a big egg at the end of your elegant faucet head. Well those days are over! Here is something lovely and new. Two faucet heads, one faucet. And best yet, there’s a new filter involved too – the “carbon block” – eliminating odors, residues, and chlorine. Will it pass your interior design fashion test?

All-In-One Credit Card

All-In-One Credit Card

Quite a few of us use multiple credit cards and every time one card expires, its plastic adds to the trash. So do the numerous receipts that we accumulate after swiping our CC. The fundamental of the One Card Electronic Card is quite simple; it wants to eliminate the trash (and resolve issues like identity theft via discarded expired CCs) by proposing to be this all-credit-cards-in-one device. On one end of the gadget is a Memory Card Slot that will help the user upload their various CC Details.

Alternate E-Book

Alternate E-Book

I am a voracious reader but I must confess that I prefer paper to the E-Books. However I won’t let my bias get in the way of showcasing the Bibliofile Electronic Book Reader. This one’s a nifty reader that uses page-turning gestures to generate the power necessary to update an e-paper display. The display supports something called the Active Reading margin which features apps like dictionary and word games that make reading fun without distracting much.

A Real Lifesaver

A Real Lifesaver

SOS Rescue Lifesaver Ring according to me is a completely well thought-out concept. It’s got GPS embedded into the ring that comes into play once the ring hits the water. The sea-water also helps generate electricity in the ring to power an in-built heater belt. This lifebelt will keep the victim warm and hopefully delay hypothermia. The rescue-ring also has compartments that can store small supplies of water and food. All these features collectively increase the chances of survival of a person lost at sea.
