Sleep Light

Sleep Light

Insomnia is a disease affecting quite a large number of people; moreover sleep patterns are disturbed due to work pressures and life in general. The ‘Under The Sea’ light is an attempt to create a nurturing environment with ambient lighting that mimics calm waters. The thought process behind the design is the sense of security we feel when in our mother’s womb and it builds upon this concept. To add a dash of functionality, when you turn down the light, it switches to study or reading mode.

An Intelligent Road Marking System

An Intelligent Road Marking System

Razmetkus is a design concept for an intelligent road marking system. It features an interactive road pavement along with sensors that track the position of all road users. If required, Razmetkus can display information for each driver individually, updating them about the traffic situation and alerting them about impending hazards. Perhaps this concept will trigger the highway authorities to better integrate technology with roadway safety and information systems. Looking forward to a tech-savvy drive in the future!

Instant Stain Removing

Instant Stain Removing

It’s the law of attraction: you’re having a trashy morning and just when you’re heading out the door with a cuppa java on the go… you spill it on your shirt. The only difference this time around is that instead of fretting, you slide on the Electrolux Instant Cleaning Glove and wipe out all traces of that offending coffee stain in a jiffy. The neoprene glove disintegrates any stain or dirt from fabrics using the combination of nanotechnology and ultrasound.

Aroma Bells

Aroma Bells

Wind Chimes are charming and building upon this idea is the Wind Bell. This digitally enhanced air purifier looks pleasing in the home environment and also comes with an aroma-dispensing feature. I love the simple aesthetics combined with the functionality.

Following the success of its predecessor, the Felt wall clock, the FeltTwo brings the same simplistic, soft aesthetic to your bedside! With a closer look, you’ll notice a perfect balance of materials in pressed felt and bamboo. Modern touches like laser engraving on the bamboo invoke a sense of fine craftsmanship. It’s sure to make getting up in the morning just a little easier… I mean, who could be mad at that face?!

Enlightening Light

Enlightening Light

If you’re reading this on your computer right now, chances are you AREN’T one of the vast groups of people lacking electricity (and therefore light) in the world. The Infinite Light is for them! Designed as a replacement for dangerous kerosene lamps, it harnesses the suns energy during the day to provide safe light at night. It actually kills two birds with one stone by using a ready-to-use flexible solar panel and battery system that can be placed directly in discarded plastic bottles. Once inside, it’s protected and ready to use for a lifetime.
