Sixth Sense Motorcycle

Sixth Sense Motorcycle

The renowned Royal Enfield brand usually conjures thoughts of cafe racer, bullet-style bikes with retro aesthetics. Ditch what you know because the Royal Enfield Pioneer is anything but! Its futuristic styling unapologetically retains NONE of the Enfield’s classic styling… regardless, it’s a fresh look at the evolution of the e-motorcycle. Designed for new riders, its self-balancing system/autonomous riding mode give it a sort of “sixth sense” that helps train newbies and hone experienced rider’s skills.

So what about my needs of a bag that is between haute fashion and functionality? Something that is sustainable, high on utility and design, something that will suit my metrosexual sensibilities. That is my QWSTION!

Magic From Salvaged Furniture

Magic From Salvaged Furniture

Designer Alexander Schnell Sramek’s ‘Anti-Slip’ contemporary furniture collection stemmed from a peculiar situation. He had an empty bedroom that need furnishing and a mind that rebelled against the mass production/consumption culture of contemporary urban societies. Working with a limited space and tools, he set out on a project to furnish the room in 30 days and nights with out spending a dime on it. When creativity finds a path to flow through constraints, the end results are often pleasantly surprising.

The Safe Line

The Safe Line

Statistics show that a number of accidents happen due to the difference of radius between inner wheels and the outer wheels, when a heavy-duty truck is turning. To help negotiate the turn, an infrared ray system with sensors, called the Safety Line, is installed on both sides of the truck. This line can detect the status of the turn and alerts pedestrians or other vehicles in the danger zone of the turn.
