The Color Of Pain

The Color Of Pain

Paraplegic athletes who are into extreme sports like Sit-Skiing, Wheelchair Basketball and Ice Sledge Hockey and are subject to their risks. These sportspeople are often suffering from reduced or total loss of pain sense and don’t even realize that they are bruised or injured. The Bruise is a smart injury detection suit for Paraplegic Athletes.

Starry Starry Night

Starry Starry Night

The designer describes the Bang and Olufsen’s A9 Wireless Speaker Concept as the “binary transitional relationship in musical experience”. In lay terms it just means a new way of relaxing with music. The speakers need not be imposing design disasters, but an object that is sublime and adds a third dimension to its creativity. The transition of opaqueness to transparency is achieved by using gradient printed polycarbonate legs. It certainly looks dashing!

The T Ride with iPhone

The T Ride with iPhone

Daily commute with the T-Scooter looks to be a dream. The reason why I say this is that it hooks up a smartphone and updates the rider on the road conditions ahead. Basically it is an electric moped that gives you an intelligent driving experience. The smartphone fits into a handlebar socket and the pre-installed application establishes a data connection with the wireless camera at the rear of the saddle. In essence you get a superior riding experience.

All That Jazz And Lights

All That Jazz And Lights

It is hard for the Sparkbeats iPhone Case to get lost in the sea of designs being created on a daily basis. First off it features an original design that I have yet to see anywhere. Secondly it turns your camera flash into a stream of light, the only thing missing is some music! Without being too much of a burden on the battery, the Patented technology used in the cover requires no external LED and battery. How cool is that!

The Most Eco-Friendly Bottled Water

The Most Eco-Friendly Bottled Water

With a title like that, I bet some of you just rolled your eyes, but hear me out. Treeson is an eco-friendly, toxin-free, trash eliminating, clean energy making, tree planting, best tasting, purest natural spring water ever. Designer Carlton Solle figured out the current recycling system is flawed so he came up with a new system that produces/recycles the bottles, fills them with spring water, and ships them out. Each bottle comes with a built-in return label so it ends right back at the source. AND a tree is planted for every bottle sold. Cradle to Cradle?

The Fiaker 2.0 addresses two of the issues: actually catching the manure… and maintain the traditional look for an authentic experience! See how it works —>
