Reinventing Oral Hygiene Through Design & Innovation

Reinventing Oral Hygiene Through Design & Innovation

For our entire cultural history, we’ve been developing technologies to simplify our lives. It’s become the main driving force behind our species as a whole: no longer do we evolve to better suit our environment, we modify our environment to suit us. This is true of everything we use in our everyday lives. Take your toothbrush, for example. You probably take it for granted, you don’t even notice it anymore.

Expanding Power

Expanding Power

The Fit In Battery not only resolves the issue of removing a battery from its slot but also expanding to suit A size to AAA and AA sizes as well. Resizing of batteries has been of interest for many years and designers keep innovating on the form and function. The real question here is, when will the makers adopt any of these concepts, or are we really done with the round shape forever?

The collects the real-time temperature, humidity, smells and sound of your desired destination and recreates it in the machine before releasing it into your home environment.

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.
