Revenge Of The G-Spot Mouse

Revenge Of The G-Spot Mouse

Its International Women’s Day and its befitting that I confuse you guys with Andy Kurovets’ Maze Of Time. There is a connection between the two… you had fun at the expense of the female anatomy and now it’s time to pay for those silly smirks! The Maze Of Time watch uses colors in a kaleidoscopic way to represent the time. So when you see a chaotic yellow line below, it’s actually the number “1”. Blue is the number “2”, red color stands for “3”, and “4” corresponds to the green etc. Kinda TokyoFlash-esque and time to get your grey cells working!

Lovely Globey Ironing

Lovely Globey Ironing

I know when you think Futuristic, you think Ironing. I know that when you drew (or draw) pictures of the future with crayons, you made sure those space-people had nice, no-wrinkle shirts on, right? Right! So what we need here is Adam Wendel’s “Infinity Iron.” It is an iron for the future. For sure. With its interactive nature and unique form, it will make the world a flatter place, with great skill and aesthetically pleasing form.

Hello there to you, mister eclipse. So nice to see part of you today! This lamp right here is called the “Nissyoku”, and it is inspired by just that fabulous lunar event, the solar eclipse. Join me, if you will, in exploring all the ways you might use its special swiveling pieces held together with magnetics, magic, and wonder. This is a unique lamp, if I do say so myself.

Entertain Yourself: Jamo A 804 Speakers

Entertain Yourself: Jamo A 804 Speakers

In part 1 of our Entertain Yourself series we took a look at the Sony BRAVIA NX800 3D HDTV. It’s our pick for amazing picture quality, industrial design, and packs a wallop of future proof technologies to take you far beyond 2010. Tho the built-in speakers are a wonder in themselves we wanted dedicated speakers. Last year we came across the Jamo A 804 and have been in love ever since.

A Giraffe Fork And A Monkey Spoon

A Giraffe Fork And A Monkey Spoon

I’m suffering from cute overload because this concept is just too… well, cute! The Children’s Cutlery and Dinner Set (they can do better than that) attempts to tie in the joys of eating with a bit of education. Kids can learn about animals while training to use flatware. Where’s the adult version huh? I want lions, panthers, bears, and a platypus. Yea a PLATYPUS. I want the plate to be a training stage for real manly eating – a Mortal Combat dining experience if you will.

No Excuse For Bad Oral Hygiene

No Excuse For Bad Oral Hygiene

At most it only takes 10 minutes to go thru a proper oral cleaning routine but many of us are guilty of skimping out. You know who you are. They have devices that do all the work now so there’s no excuse but in this immediately gratifying lifestyle we always want the easy way out so the Steward Oral Care system is here to save the day.

The Tiniest Room

The Tiniest Room

In each little room is a little place where you can stay between trips. This sort of project has been done on Yanko before, see if you can spot it! But this is definitely a bit different. For shizzle. This one’s for a larger cross-section of locations. Small, independent bubbles made for versatility. For placement in places with large concentrations of people like airports, sea ports, events, resorts, international fairs. Micro locations for the macro plan.

Stuck to Rivers and Lakes

Stuck to Rivers and Lakes

This right here is called “Waterfall.” It’s totally beautiful. Let’s just get that straight right now. Next, let’s talk about what the heck it is. It’s a project by designer Barbara Bona that came to her brain while she was studying the space of a window. Noting that while during the day, a window shows natural daylight, during the night, it’s totally just a black, blank screen. So she decided to take advantage of the space and totally light up the night.

The Real Guitar Video Game

The Real Guitar Video Game

The REAL, I said. The REAL one. This is the one where you learn a real, actual, applicable beyond the game skill. Habeeb it! The designer of this project had the idea stop upon his mind-grapes while he was watching friends jam upon Guitar Hero and Rock Band all day long. He thought hey, they’re so good at this, but they can’t play a real guitar at all! Well wouldn’t you know it, he was (and is!) an industrial designer so he pumped up his muscles and got to work creating what he calls “Vision.”

Wind Up With Glee

Wind Up With Glee

Putting it straight enough for you, Wind Up Socket has a timer to it, once you set the duration and time’s up, the electricity supply to that socket gets cut off. For grownups who don’t have many restrictions and can self regulate, this one may seem more cumbersome than anything else. But for moms with teens who don’t comprehend “half hour of TV / Videogames time”; this is booty! I’d only be careful of placing the cords of various gadgets carefully, otherwise its set!

Mozart Of Lights

Mozart Of Lights

So you can’t be a conductor of any musical symphony nor do you have any creativity in painting and art. Tough luck, but what if I gave you this magical wand, that allowed you to transform your ceiling into a magical landscape of color LEDs, that brighten up and dim at the flick of your wrist, wouldn’t you be the Mozart of lights? Draw The Lights makes you a capable light conductor! What I mean is that clusters of LEDs take command from this “light brush” in your hand, and sparkle to create mesmerizing ambient settings.
