Saved By the Net

Net Rescue Boat is a lifeboat dredge with a net. The purpose of this re-design stems from the difficulties rescuers face while on missions using a regular lifeboat. The net area makes it easier to bring people to safety and commence first aid. Yep, in playtime we can also think of many party uses for the net area … but that’s just a wicked side of us!

Gravity Controlled Clock

JELLY is a playful twist on the alarm clock that was designed for “kidults” who will recognize and enjoy its shape inspired by a familiar childhood fragment: the jello cup!

Tron Dartboard

Tron Dartboard

Love this laser-empowered, Tron-inspired dartboard that can be put up just about anywhere. The great news is that the darts can be color-coded and divided as per the teams and they are not needle pointed. They stick onto the dartboard via special glue and won’t end up poking someone in the eye!

Dragonball Z for the Firemen

Dragonball Z for the Firemen

Light Ball is an illuminating ball designed for firemen. The innovation here is that the ball emits light and absorbs smoke at the same time. Small and portable, the ball is supposed to be thrown into an area that is affected by smoke and fire. The light ball absorbs fumes and emits light, increasing visibility and making it safer to cross the section.

Eye Development Meets Entertainment

Eye Development Meets Entertainment

This thoughtful sensory toy, called Wiggle, stems from designer Adva Rave’s own immersive experience working with visually impaired kids and aims to help children practice their eye movements while having fun. The therapeutic toy hangs from the ceiling, swinging in a controlled slow movement to help kids anticipate direction to catch it. With continued use, it helps develop central and peripheral vision, movement of the pupil, acute 3D perception/timing as well as hand-eye coordination.

If James Bond Wore a Smartwatch

If James Bond Wore a Smartwatch

Most smartwatch designs are focused around ultra-minimal, even futuristic styling with either a monocoque band or simplistic rubber strap and square interface… but that look isn’t for everyone! The HTC Omni stands alone as the smartwatch for users who don’t want to sacrifice classic watch style for smart technology. The design features a traditional metal linked band in gold, silver or black and an elongated interface that almost looks like it was simply dropped into an existing formal watch face. It’s digital tech gone dapper!

Since 1968, the EF66 series of electric-only locomotives have been synonymous with strength & dependability, ushering in the golden age of engine craftsmanship in Japan for high-speed trains. As a tribute to this legacy, Masahiro Minami designed the EF66-2000 concept as an experimental model of the vehicle typology. The design inherits aesthetic & quality DNA from its ancestor & sports a modern output of 3,900 kW, 1,500 V direct current, and a VVVF inverter within its 100.13 ton weight, all resulting in a top speed of 130 km/hr.
