One Gee'd Up Blade

One Gee’d Up Blade

This is a revival of the scariest bathroom tool ever created by mankind. The butterfly knife. And in this case, it’s made to be used only on the throat and the face. Not for killing! For shaving. Designer George Christou is very disturbed with the idea that the butterfly knife to the throat for shaving or, as he calls it, the “art of shaving” ritual, is about to be gone forever! So he made a new one!

Come Give Me A Gentle Squeeze

Come Give Me A Gentle Squeeze

Sometimes I really consider myself to be a fusspot when it comes to stress relief. I find squeezing stress balls too childish and the juggling of those Zen balls is best left to monks. One thing that has taken my fancy is lights and the unique odd ways in which I can use it to my advantage. Diana Lin’s d°light Bubbles looks dandy enough on their own, but I totally dig the interactive aspect. The bunch just beckons you to come over and give them a delightful squeeze. They even give out a ‘whoo’ sound at every pinch; sweet silicone bubble LEDs.

Monster On Rescue Mission

Monster On Rescue Mission

Monash student Damien believes that by 2025 our urban infrastructure is going to be under considerable strains, which is why our streets are going to be jam-packed with traffic most of the time. Providing speedy Emergency Medical Services (EMS) to victims will require funky reconnaissance and first aid vehicles like the Re:Veive. Agile and nimble, its soft silicon body houses a quadrapedial hydraulics system that allows it to navigate through traffic by literally standing up and walking thru.

Don’t Give Up The Stub

Don’t Give Up The Stub

Unless you are one of those twisted minds that create art out of pencil stubs, the normal routine would be to discard them. But from now on, you can become a pencil stub collector. The 1 + 1 = 1 is no mathematical error, but applied to this equation: 1 pencil stub + 1 pencil stub = 1 long pencil. Really functional and awesome!

Hot On Your Heels

Hot On Your Heels

This is one of those unique opportunities where the product’s extended collection of copy (that’s the words) lends a direct hand in the title of the post. This post is a special case in more ways than one, though, as you’re soon 2b seeing. The name of the project is “Stiletto Police”, and as far as industrial design projects go, this one’s rather graphic. Look at these shoes. And fall right into a maniacal state of wonder.

How Skeletal can an H Bike Be?

How Skeletal can an H Bike Be?

Made to be above all minimal. Should I be funny and just leave that one sentence as a description? Nay! Naw! Heck naw! Let’s talk all about this bike right here, buddy! The lines on it are simple yet dynamic. The shape is extreme, as if we were living on an alternate timeline where this bike had grown from a bizarro world history. And what is it made of? Carbon! And what’s its name? Hybrid City!

It Binds the Galaxy Together

It Binds the Galaxy Together

Welcome to what you might call tomorrows… business card? This post features an exercise in mobile device brainstorming under the title “Tie.” Each of the pictures in this project is an interactive version of what folks pass around today. Maybe it’s just the simpler version of the smartphone. Or maybe… it’s something completely new! Devour, chew on, spit out, taste, nibble on these images. Tie them all together.

No iPad Jokes Get The iDrift?

No iPad Jokes Get The iDrift?

While the video here explains exactly how to use an iPad, lemme tell you more about how you can accessorize it. If you’re into car-games, then rest assured you’re going to need add-ons like the iDrift. Unlike the hype of the Wii Mario Kart Wheel, this one is an easy to use peripheral; it has no mechanical or electronic parts whatsoever, making it cheap to manufacture and durable. This submission has got me thinking, how long before the next iPad related concept surfaces…sooner thank you say Jack Robinson!

Are We Having A Road Cone For Breakfast?

Are We Having A Road Cone For Breakfast?

Sorry, wrong menu but right intentions… The On the Road Ceramic Breakfast Set is purposely crafted to resemble a Traffic Cone. Why? Simply to add the fun elements to ceramics plus to give you an espresso cup, juice glass, tea cup, cereal bowl and a small plate, in one go. Super cute and super simple, that’s the way to go!

Anything with Wonderland in It

Anything with Wonderland in It

Put the word Wonderland in the name of your product, piece, or design and you’ll get me to look twice, that’s for dern sure. Take a whimsical look at this fantasy land designed by the rather fashionable Eunsuk Hur. In this “Nomadic Wonderland” you’ll find a series of interchangeable, interlockable, interspectacular pieces of material that come together to spell nothing less than glamorously wonderful.
