The Clip Button

The Clip Button

Murphy’s Law – just when you are late for office, that dang loose button on the shirt will fall off. For such emergency situations and for the likes of me – who simply hate mending – we have here the Clip Button. A clip-on shirt button design that makes mending very easy. Practical and a must-have for all single-tons!

Remote Baby Bonding

Parents of preemies can find themselves at home worrying in the first days or weeks following the birth & miss out on building a physical/emotional connection.

Mosquitoes on a Mushroom

Mosquitoes on a Mushroom

The biggest problem with camping is the battle with mosquitoes (and other creepy crawlies). No matter how much of the repellent you rub on yourself, they do tend to find a spot to attack you. The ‘Anti Mosquito’ is a mushroom inspired design that needs to be placed around the tent. The solar panels on the head source energy during the day and lure in mosquitoes and moths during the night via a soft glow, exterminating them using a current.

Simply Slide!

Simply Slide!

It’s not the question of carrying money and cards; its how we carry it. A well-designed wallet is all that we ask for, one that is minimalistic, sexy and above all – functional. The silver lining to the SLIDE Wallet is the materials used, which is cork fabric & classic denim. Who would have thought that something as simple and sustainable as cork can be used to design a great wallet!

Scuba Smart-Goggles

Scuba Smart-Goggles

The key to a good scuba dive is knowing your surroundings, so the Scubus S provides multiple layers information to divers through augmented reality. More of a head-up display on the screen of the goggles, the wristband-controlled interface shows users vital info like depth, direction, water temp, air supply and more. Because safety is paramount in a dive, it immediately alerts to dangerous situations and gives users the ability to signal for help with the push of a button.

A Moto Disguised

A Moto Disguised

Despite having pedals, the Hydro Bike isn’t really a bicycle at all. This fuel cell-powered transportation features these faux pedals because in a lot of countries it would legally still be considered a bicycle, avoiding the need for a motorcyclists license, road tax, etc.. Thanks to its compact hydrogen power tech, the unibody design is a bit slimmer and stealthier than other powered bikes without sacrificing power for not only its motor but other various components including sleek integrated lights.

This Plug is a Switch!

This Plug is a Switch!

Ideas that enhance functionality are always welcome, and hence the Clack Plug makes its way here. The socket is the switch itself; hence the design compels you to switch off the plug when not in use. Ideal of course is to unplug devices when not in use, but for now the Clack Plug will suffice.
