The Brave Little Light Cable

The Brave Little Light Cable

The entire cord is stays whichever way you style it. It’s got a flexible electrical lining that allows the entire chord to take part in the way the lamp sits. It’s like, totally alive. Every style is unique. Not like those crappy normal lights. Think of all the things you could use this for! I’d bring it with constructing with me. Next we need it to have some A.I. in there so it could go the next step: follow me around and totally snake smart.

Jazzed-up Washing Machine

Jazzed-up Washing Machine

Some of us would do anything to shy away from a chore, be it cleaning up or doing the laundry. However our friend Murat Ozveri is trying to entice us into at least wearing clean clothes once in a while thanks to his innovative OVO washing machine. The enticement comes in the form of visual appeal more that practical application however. It’s the spunky colors, ergonomic outlines, lights and disco show that glams-up OVO!

 Wet, Pause, Lather, Pause, Rinse, Now You’re Clean!

Wet, Pause, Lather, Pause, Rinse, Now You’re Clean!

Environmental issues are close to my heart simply because I hate to see us waste so much of our resources. Water is a precious one that we take for granted and like it or not we do waste a lot of it when we take a shower or a soak. Industrious designers are coming up ways to cut back the guilt of a nice hot shower. Take a look at this Ishi Shower for instance.

It's Guitar Learnin' Time with Dr. Roboto

It’s Guitar Learnin’ Time with Dr. Roboto

Designer Eugene Cheong brings you “Maestro,” laser and mp3 guitar learning aid. You put mp3s into the device via SD card, the songs are converted into guitar tablature, and the tablature is projected, with laser lights, onto the guitar fretboard as you play. No longer will there be a barrier between you and the great and powerful rock and roll god!

It is a rock and roll (laser show) fantasy!

As Simple or Complex as You Want it to be

As Simple or Complex as You Want it to be

Fingerprint recognition to activate biometric profile. Blank surface when not in use. 3-D interface with artificial intelligence that automatically rearranges your options and thangs based on usage and preference. Touchscreen with growing buttons (really, 3D, up in your face.) How many “smart” phones does it take to screw together the world community?

I got the hookup! Or should I say C. Ferraz do?

Dandyism Rule: Ride Must Be Stylish

Dandyism Rule: Ride Must Be Stylish

Dandy gentleman prefer to be chauffeured but that’s only because there isn’t a ride suitable to the lifestyle. Bentleys and exotic imports are way to flashy. They need something more refined and subdued like the Motobecane Motivo. The electric scooter rides you around in style. The in-wheel motors are powered by a removable, rechargeable suitcase wrapped in luxurious walnut. Not as tasteless as its Japanese counterpart and no where near as brash as an American chopper.

Brush Can, Cleans A Fine Toothed Comb

Brush Can, Cleans A Fine Toothed Comb

You won’t catch me on my hands and knees sweeping with an old fashioned duster. No sir I prefer to use the power of a little wonder called the Roomba but sometimes getting manual is the only way to go and the Brush Can makes it a tad easier to keep up cleaning chores. The densely packed bristles can magically clean themselves if you pull them thru combed teeth. Also a perfect way to hold the brush in place. Brills.

Difference Between Life And Death Is A Light

Difference Between Life And Death Is A Light

As if the tragedy of losing a dear one to an accident is not enough, the reason of poor street lighting just doesn’t justify the situation. A simple jog in the twilight, walking your pooch at dusk, do these circumstances warrant an accident due poor lighting or visibility? Better safe than sorry…. get visible dear! NR4 Illuminated Running Apparel is attire that integrates luminescence into the outfit, making it safer for you to take that evening run.

Future Cup Alert! It has the V Shape.

Has this ever happened to you? *Cup ring on nose*

Well me too! Always with the cup ring on the nose from the wanting to get the liquid out of the cup. And not only that, designer AMINATION (aka Amin Saadat), has got a thing or two to say about all the “fats and bacteria from the edge of the glass.”

More Vacuous Crap From ole' Mac

More Vacuous Crap From ole’ Mac

As Yanko regulars might notice, we post a lot of concepts from Mac Funamizu, but I’m putting my foot down and stopping the love fest here and now. This flexible OLED monitor concept which supposes the OLED material would roll up inside the white stand and allow the user to choose the optimum screen size. Supposing that the material could compact itself that tightly, he goes on and mounts a cd drive behind the translucent screen and for good measure throws some invisible projection technology in as well.

Backyard Science: The Solar Tree

Backyard Science: The Solar Tree

We all know that we are screwing the environment with the enormous carbon footprint that we leave behind, so its time we take charge and come up with practical solutions to tidy up the mess. On the sustainable side we have been harnessing Solar Power for a while, but existing solar panels on roofs have their own set worries like professional installation and structural issues. The Solar Tree offers a realistic solution to structural woes and more.

Sculpted Phone No Different From Hosta

Sculpted Phone No Different From Hosta

More often than not, designers take inspiration from the natural environment to come up with something spectacular in technology. If it weren’t for the dragonflies we wouldn’t have helicopter now, would we? The project we see here is a simple home phone taking inspiration from the Hosta Plant. For those with a serious lack of green-thumb-knowledge let me tell you that it’s a foliage plant that is not fussy and comes in a broad range of solid colors.
