Articulate Beats

Articulate Beats

I completely connect with the Le Pen concept, where the designer has tried to marry a pen with a music player. I still recollect those glory days when I used to solve math equations to the beats of U2 and Police. Somehow music helped me zone in and focus on those numbers. I’m sure many of you like to work with something strumming in the background, Le Pen takes an innovative approach towards that.

Watch Me, Please!

Watch Me, Please!

It’s the current norm to have smart watches hook up with smartphones via Bluetooth, however they are limited by their display size. The Watch-Me has extended display up to 20mm x 140mm and with gyroscope sensor installation. The accompanying video explains how this concept works and I am sold on it. Can’t wait to get my hands on one of these babies and try them on….have a look….

Classic Radio

Classic Radio

There seems to be an upswing towards everything old, retro and classic and this Classic Radio fits that bill. It hosts the design cues of the old including the mechanical sensibilities and operations. It’s the prefect marriage of digital with analog, what do you think?

Take Your Pills On Time

Take Your Pills On Time

The Pill Watch is an innovative way to ensure that you don’t forget to take your pills on time. It even has a small compartment to store the tablet. I suppose you can keep it as an emergency backup pill or the real deal. The watch is capable of measuring the pulse rate, which is a good add-on.

Split and Go

Split and Go

I’m in the market for a new car and am facing this very dilemma! I want something smaller and more efficient for zipping around the city than my slow, gas-guzzling SUV. But I can’t live without the extra space when I need it! If only I could have both…. The Split&Go concept was born of this very idea! It’s a conventional van that splits to turn into a two-seater small car for urban use. Perfect for everything from road trips to running errands!

The Power of Cross X

The Power of Cross X

The Cross X is a low-cost hybrid bicycle designed for the rapidly urbanizing countries. It hopes to be that mode of transport, which is cost-effective, traffic beating and personal. Its potential in two contexts – medical emergencies and large campuses; I’m thinking campuses like Apple or Google, perhaps!

Linear Or Long, Just The Way I Like It

Linear Or Long, Just The Way I Like It

The EON 2 is a concept kitchen whose main highlight is the rotating bar. By moving this bar from linear to L-type, you get a chance to play around with the space, looks and orientation of the room. The minimalist design is supported with the use of high quality materials and fittings.

Light and Listen

Light and Listen

The Cantador lamp brings light and sound together like never before. The minimal pendant uses hidden LEDs against a specialized film and  acid finish glass to create a diffused, multidirectional light that even illuminates upwards. An integrated sound transducer produces subtle vibrations in the glass that fall in rhythm with whatever music is playing. Together, these features create the perfect atmospheric lamp. See it in action —>
