Finally, Rest for the Weary!

Finally, Rest for the Weary!

Can’t sleep because of all the noise? No prob! Ipno allows you to find sleep even in the most disruptive of environments. This personal-size speaker broadcasts white noise: a sound that includes all frequencies and has hypnotic qualities that allow the brain to disconnect external noise while soothing the heart rate and clearing the mind. Good things when you’re trying to catch ZZZs! Simultaneously, microphones in the back capture surrounding noise which is then transmitted to a Digital Signal Processor to cancel out the external noise.

Bespoke Baby Bed

Bespoke Baby Bed

Nuture is a concept that replaces the core and support layers of traditional infant mattresses with a strap system that allows for a bespoke design to be created for every child. The aluminum frame provides rigidity with adjustable tension straps that allow the profile to be altered. This means parents can tailor the mattress contours to their baby to help prevent flat head syndrome, limit acid reflux and more. It’s also extendable to adapt to a range of infant beds & grows as the child does, all the way until they transition to a regular bed!

Fire Away, Fire Away!

Fire Away, Fire Away!

This might just be the first car EVER designed from the ground up to be completely BULLETPROOF! Not just bulletproof though- according to designer Mike Enayah it could also brush off a few IEDs like they were flies. We’re talking tank tech here. You’d need it too with all those haters that be jelly! Aesthetically, its like a Maybach and a 1967 Shelby had a baby… er.. if they could have a baby. I want it just so I can blast David Guetta’s Titanium song and not even be kidding!

The Apollo Moonwatch

The Apollo Moonwatch

Lots of reasons to love it! For me, it’s that I pay very little attention to the moon & therefore know very little about its phases. Embarrassing… but true. This timepiece is not only a reminder that our celestial pal is there, but an educational tool that illustrates the moon’s changing phases. Also, I’m so reliant on my smartphone that I often forget to wear my watch at all. This fun multifunctional feature definitely provides some incentive! So maybe you’re into astrology, are a space buff, or like me & not at all. Either way, its hard not to find it cool for you.

Social Design with CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE on the Cloud

As a pioneering innovator, one of the biggest benefits that you can take from the Internet and smart computing is mobility. The freedom to access your data and files across all platforms, sharing and collaborating with colleagues on a project are functions that are becoming a necessity rather than a perk. Dassault Systemes understands this and has come up with a brilliant solution with the CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE on the Cloud.

Bottle Belt

Bottle Belt

We all know that it is important to stay hydrated while exercising but the problem is carrying a bottle when out on a run. Looping in a bottle at the waist is inconvenient so designers Yuan Peizhuo & Jin Huijian have fashioned the Annulus, a water bottle belt that holds about 350 ml of liquid. A clever contraption that comes handy and adds to the exercise!

Easy Slide

Easy Slide

The space saving and functional 8° Battery has a unique design. Agreed that round batteries have their own reasons, but time and again we have seen designers try to fashion something different. Well, this one is mainly to save your nails from chipping and pressing out easily. What do you think, will this work better than this list?

This Ain't No Domino's Drone

This Ain’t No Domino’s Drone

With big companies like Amazon and even Domino’s Pizza conducting serious UAV tests, the age of the private drone is right around the corner. This concept explores the more serious side of drone deliveries, aiming to give the medical industry a super-fast way to transmit everything from drugs and vitamins to blood banks and even organs! The unique design allows for vertical takeoff before transitioning into a full glide to the destination where it agains drops vertically. Upon arrival, recipients can unlock the contents using a secure touchscreen.

Stealthy Static Motion Lighting

Stealthy Static Motion Lighting

Inspired by aircraft aerodynamics, Aurora is an exploration into the dynamic balance between linear forms and planar shapes. The result is an elegant lighting object with severe sharpness and a slender profile that merge with light to create an illusion of static motion. A sculptural ornament during the day, the design comes alive at night with soothing hues of cyan and blue that mimic a natural aurora phenomenon.
