Plane Takes Off On Magnets

Plane Takes Off On Magnets

The MagLevAir is an airplane shuttle system with reduced noise, space and energy consumption during take off. The airplane is hooked to a maglev shuttle saving expensive cerosin for accerleration during take off. In flight the delta wing shaped airplane uses scram jets. The MagLevAir is part of a hub and spoke system. It could serve in an urban environment and transport passengers across short distances to bigger airports with more standard Airbuses and Boeings.

Grippy For The Grip Challenged

Grippy For The Grip Challenged

Slip Grips are designed to help individuals with limited hand mobility manipulate objects that they would otherwise be unable to use. The product is used by slipping the finger holds over the thumb and forefinger and then snapping objects in to place via the clips located in between these finger holds. At a slight angle, the clip directs objects placed in it downward, giving the user a natural range of motion.

How To Read A Non-Braille Book

How To Read A Non-Braille Book

You’re blind, I mean sight impaired and the situation is that you wanna read Harry Potter but the Braille version is not available. So you pop out the “Haptic Reader”, place it on the front page, and allow it to scan the contents. Almost magically all the letters get converted to Braille, which dot the surface of the reader. Want more magic? Turn on the voice system, to hear the story instead.

Sphere-it in the Sky

Sphere-it in the Sky

Electricity is in the air. Literally. This vehicle, the futuristic “Bio Top” utilizes “wireless electricity” technology. The front of this vehicle has 2 wheels, the back has one, and this one is a sphere which charges the electric car battery as it goes, then transmitting the energy from the battery to the car through that wireless electricity. Also you’ve gotta have a listen about the steering wheel!

Choose Your Atmospheric Fate

Choose Your Atmospheric Fate

So perhaps you’d like blue today. Or perhaps you’d like magenta? Or perhaps you’d like to go for broke and say choose… pure white light? My goodness you have all of these choices, all of them, with this lamp I am about to show you called the “Color Therapy Lamp.” A color LED selection of “millions of colors” right from your mobile phone. Not so novice!

A Very Simple Plug

A Very Simple Plug

I won’t bore you lengthy explanations on this Plug Extension Cord Project, because it really doesn’t require one. It’s been designed to basically explore the possibilities of using only one hand or simply just your foot to unplug your gadget. Sometimes we do get into a situation where our hands are full and we need to unplug the damn cord. This plug extension is for one of those sticky situations. Neat, simple and superb!

Utilize That Sling

Utilize That Sling

Recovering from broken arm is not much of a pleasant situation; coz one needs to diligently follow a physiotherapy routine to build back the muscles. Maybe something like the Recovery Sling will help you stay on track coz it doubles up a physiotherapy aid. As a sling, it offers adequate support to the fractured arm, without putting much of a strain around your neck. The arm loops are adjustable and post plaster-removal, can be used as a rehab aid to do some muscle building exercises.

Incredibly Lazy In The Future To Cook

Incredibly Lazy In The Future To Cook

Dumbledore’s Pensieve would come in handy here, but the thing is, I need you to look into the future and not in the past! The scene is this, you’re as lazy and rusted in the kitchen as Irona coz you now have a full-fledged butler-robot to do your cooking; Butl-R-Bot. It’s compact, intuitive, cooks, cleans and flies like Tinker Bell; only the fairy dust is missing! This futuristic kitchen-o-bot relies on “Responsive Artificial Intelligence and advanced technologies.”

Ten Futuristic Computer Concepts

Ten Futuristic Computer Concepts

Apparently when it was suggested to build a Home Computer, the trade analysts predicted that there would be a demand for only 2 PCs a year. Times have flown and look where we are now! In a family of four with modest means, we own 2 desktops and 2 Laptops! The point is, we have seen many creative concepts in laptops and PCs on YD over the years. Agreed many are farfetched, but dreaming big is a part of the creative process. Here is a look at Ten Futuristic Computer Concepts that we hope get realized.

13 Pieces of Wood and 2 Bits of Rope

13 Pieces of Wood and 2 Bits of Rope

What do the ingredients in the title make? A table! At least in Aïssa Logerot’s world they do. I might be mistaken on the number of bits of wood, but the equation remains the same: a completely enjoyable build-it-yourself table made from simple, visible parts. Lots of people get down on IKEA for creating low-quality, oversimplified designs, but I say no! The best part is being able to build it yourself, and easily!

Logerot’s on this same tip.

The Up and Down Lamp

The Up and Down Lamp

Lumix is a lamp that shines either up, down, or up and down. That’s it! I mean there are other details that you might want, like, where can I buy one, but basically the smart idea’s in the pudding! A block in the middle of the lamp and two bulbs. This is precisely what me, a night-working fellow, needs in the apartment.

I’m Moving…

I’m Moving…

My kitchen, that is. Like, I want it here in the middle of my dining room; instead of a table….but Chris Burns says it will look funky by the deck. Long Tran wants me to place it aesthetically next to the bar in the living room (he’s a designer you know). Takashi couldn’t care a less about where I place it, as long as I cook him a decent meal! Well, a “Moving Kitchen” is possible, and quite a functional one at that. Small in size, it’s got an induction cooking space, folded tables that double up as work-area plus plenty of room to store some kitchen essentials. Excellent for singles.

A Room With A View

A Room With A View

Right from the Five-Star gilded service to behind the bushes; I’ve used many kinda bathrooms in my life. And the two things that contribute towards making an impressionable one are ambiance and cleanliness. At home, you would want to create a bathroom that’s functional yet chic. Easy to maintain (ugh lime scales) yet classy. One such bathroom design that fits the bill is the Wavflow concept. Clean and uncluttered, the soft waves-like finishing creates a rejuvenating atmosphere.
