A Marriage Of Style And Technology

A Marriage Of Style And Technology

I don’t think I need to remind you of the quirky sunglasses, MP3s or headsets that we have seen on YD over the years. However is this one of those moments where I bring you an item that’s all three! Bluetooth headset, player AND Sunglasses all rolled into one. Mood is something you would like to wear down Miami Beach and impress the crowds with your style. It’s a multifunctional accessory for your music, phone and eyes.

Wake Up to An Alarming Juice, Toast, and Coffee

Wake Up to An Alarming Juice, Toast, and Coffee

Ou de chocolat! The one time I was in France in my life, I stayed at a nice place of lodging just down the street from the Moulin Rouge (no lies!) And in this place of lodging, every morning, we were served toast and a choice of “café, tea, ou de chocolate.” And with the “Wake Up” alarm, that’s just the choices you’ll get. Every morning. Automatically.

A Chair Made of Rubber

A Chair Made of Rubber

Wait. Not made of rubbers. Made of rubber. And not made entirely of rubber, but the joints are made of rubber. And the skin is made of rubber. The chair is made of a regularly solid material (wood or metal of some sort), while the joints and the skin of the chair are made of rubber. You may bend and turn any way you wish, without breaking or busting. Don’t bend too far, however, as the chair has not been rendered fall-on-your-head-proof.

Welcome to Bathroom Paradise

Welcome to Bathroom Paradise

A bathroom of a thousand and one follies, lollies, and lick-em-lollys, a magic fountian flow of non-stop wine, women, and moochie-coochie-koo! OR, or, if you want to be technical about the whole thing: it’s the outdoors indoors. This interior concept is called the “Peaceful Clarity Bathroom” and it’s an exercise in luxury and yes, my favorite, feng shui. Top to bottom! What a lovely bathroom I AM TELLING YOU!

 Split Your Wheel Into Eight

Split Your Wheel Into Eight

I don’t mean take a knife and cut it into eight parts but instead follow the design that our friend Charlie has in mind for us. He has devised the Dynamically Augmenting Wheel System or simply DAWS. His aim was to design a wheel system that would allow a car to shift its center of gravity without losing its traction footprint.

Old School iPhone

Old School iPhone

It’s a total hash of digital and analog ideologies and still looks uber-cool! I guess this is what an iPhone-esque phone would have looked like in the 80’s. Calling itself the Touch Screen Rotary, this phone is a Retro Blast but with modern functionality. Needless to say, touch controls on the rotary are there and so is a backlit screen. If you plan on calling me on this phone I will know it’s you thanks to the incoming caller ID.

Created by Young-Min Kim, Hyeon-Jeong Woo & Kyung-Goo Lee to promote healthy bike use in areas that don’t normally tend to bike users (especially in the way of bike protectors, information kiosks, and rest seats!) Spring is here, time to bike! P+ bike system for safe keeping!

Paper Clip with Several More Spins in It

Paper Clip with Several More Spins in It

What! Everyone knows there’s only a couple turns in a paper clip. And that paper clips are not fun. No fun with paper clips allowed! What Art Lebedev Studio has done is totally add metal to this legendary invention, curve it up a bit more than usual, and slap an excellent name on it. “Super Paper Clip!” it was named, later changed to the more Russian “Skrepkus.”

Are You Cuckoo for Nooka Fluff?

Are You Cuckoo for Nooka Fluff?

What we have here is a cute little watch. It is flexible rubber, digital, and is basically an arm-cuckoo clock. Kind of like a Rodger Rabbit sort of thing. More fantastic work from the folks at Nooka, right? Actually, not affiliated. Inspired by! Hannes Grebin submitted this to us (and half a dozen other design blogs) and I’m sure it’s about to blow up! Rightfully so?

*Blow up on the internets, I mean. I’m sure it works just fine. Have no fear! lol.
