Mega Block Motorcyclin' on Down the Line

Mega Block Motorcyclin’ on Down the Line

Lines. Lines and Lines and lines. With the front face looking like a Lego, or a mega-blok. It’s the “2015 Honda CB 750″ by Igor Chak. The engine is powered by a four-cylinder liquid hydrogen engine. POW! A six-speed dual-clutch transmission with electronic lurch and traction control. Electronic tuning by the onboard computer. I’ve decided to call it “Frank”. Hello David, Frank, aka CB750, is here to take you over the canyon top.

Get Touchy Feely With Time

Get Touchy Feely With Time

Although the blind will not be able to appreciate the simplistic style of Feel the Time, the practical approach of the design will be well received. The watch face features rotating discs with a tangible nub on each. Feeling the nub helps the blind read the time. Three−dimensional rings distinguish the discs from each other and a flexible membrane protects the face of the watch. A break at the 12’O Clock position acts as the guide for feeling the time accurately. Sight or no sight, the watch will look neat on any wrist.

Hot Baby Bottle!

Hot Baby Bottle!

My recent 32-hour train journey across the length of India brought back memories of the times when I last traveled with my son on such a long journey. He was just six months old then and I remember having to sweet talk the Pantry Attendant to keeping the milk bottle in the fridge and later re-heating it on the stove for me. Times have changed and we no longer need to rely on such small mercies. Take this Baby Bottle Thermos for example; it’s the apt design for a mother who is traveling with a baby.

Visualizing the Peanut Gallery

Whom amongst you partakes in the art of search engine optimization and general internets traffic-directing? How’s your web-page doing? I’m sure a lot of you use such as Google Analytics or whatnot. But what if you want a giant bowl-clock with pretty amazing lights that help you visualize your traffic fate? It’s big and crazy and good.

Enlightened Paper Mache

Enlightened Paper Mache

Given a chance, many of us would like to glam up our décor with some prêt interior lighting and classy furniture. However the likes of Dana Otto prefer to opt for subtlety and the de-glam route by fashioning a lineup of lamps out of recycled paper and wires. Needless to say the outcome is impressive as you can see with this Growth Series. The unpretentious trio can be placed whichever ways you like to project light on walls, ceilings or even the table. Custom Lighting at its best!

Ode to Das Wine Boot

Ode to Das Wine Boot

Oh, Das Wine Boot, how I wish theoretical science did work perfectly in sync with real-world physics. The three minds at Kyouei Design contain at the very least thrice the creativity that my fake-German brain does – evident here in the wine-holding “Glass Tank.” Get the wine in that bubble and you’ll be booting your way to strange wineglass supremacy. An eye opener, to be sure… or maybe an eye closer? How much you drinking?

What a Sense of Direction! Orbita Mouse Review

What a Sense of Direction! Orbita Mouse Review

We don’t often review mice here on YD unless it’s something really unique and or special. When Cyber Sport approached us about reviewing the Orbita, a hockey puck shaped mouse, we thought “hey why not!” My last experience with a puck mouse left a bad taste in my mouth (ahem: iMac) so I was prepared to be let down, or was I? Hit the jump!

The Case of the Disappearing Home Interior

The Case of the Disappearing Home Interior

Whoa. Where’d it go? Oh shizzle it’s future day! This particular project is projected for 20 years from now. It’s meant to take full responsibility of the technologies that will be available in 2029. So it uses… buttons? Oh wait. It’s also made to retain the humanity of it’s users: humans. That’s why the furniture and whatnot is made of nice wood, steel, and glass. The entire system of this kitchen is contained under and above it, entirely concealed when not in use.

Eggy-Blob for Television President

Eggy-Blob for Television President

What in the heck is this thing? Is it an egg? Is it a blob? Nay! It’s eggyblob -I mean, actually, the “Infinity Remote Control.” Designed by Damien Crossan, this remote was designed to fit a model of a possible remote 7 to 10 years from now. This remote utilized “4G” technology, lithium polymer batteries, and flexible touchscreens. And for its next trick, separation anxiety!

When France Gives You Champagne, You Make...

When France Gives You Champagne, You Make…

Beauteous industrial designs. Below check out three top amalgamations of the eco-friendly totally-new Veuve Clicquot champagne box. Devour the color of this “Design Box,” first of all. Look at that yellow! Or is it gold? With red accents. Oh then also it’s made of paper. Paper only. Less than 5% coverage with inks, glues, and solvents. And no plastic film. And micro-grooving is used to reduce the amount of paper in the packaging. AND the paper is FSC approved. What’s that mean?

Apple Mac Folder

Apple Mac Folder

Is it next MacBook? no, but everyone likes to put their 2 cents in. It’s called the Mac Folder – not all that different from any other laptop but this could be the netbook everyone wants/expects Apple to make. The UI has been reworked to work more like the interfaces seen on the iPod Touch and iPhone and of course it has a multi-touch screen and OF COURSE it’s as thin as Kate Moss if not more. Want one?
