Zero Illumination

Zero Illumination

If you had to rethink the flashlight, what design would you try to evolve it to? André Duarte has brought in a whole new dimension as far orientation goes. The 0 Light can be held in the palm of your hand and beam up the lights to any direction. It’s like this little object in your hand that is lined with powerful LEDs. Interesting form for a seemingly basic object.

solidThinking Evolve® 9.5 – A New Level of Modeling Control

solidThinking Evolve® 9.5 – A New Level of Modeling Control

My initiation into the design community began more as a content writer than as a design enthusiast. Typical design jargons like renders, 3D modeling and cropping were alien words for me. I guess I never fully understood how these words could become the differentiating factor between a good design and great design. In due course, I learnt my lesson and my respect for designers grew and I also learnt that solidThinking was not just constructive thinking but also a vital tool for designers.

Timbre Timber

Timbre Timber

Timbre, by Casey Lin, trims the essence of the speaker down to the bare minimum, allowing the inherent qualities of the materials to become the focal point of the design. With superfluous elements stripped away, all that remain visible are glass and wood, chosen for their enhanced acoustic qualities. Placing different objects on the raw wood block instantly changes the sound, encouraging user interaction and a deeper connection to the object. Jump to the video to hear how it works!

Pod Train

Pod Train

Inspired by those awesome Japanese capsule hotels, the JIYUKŪKAN high speed rail system packs personal pod modules in which travelers can sleep, relax or just hang out on the 500-800 mile journey. Like the capsule hotels, each train packs a number of showers so users are well-rested and fresh-faced when they arrive at their destination. Passengers can get on with their day upon arriving without the lag feeling of lost time!

Lone (as in 1)

Lone (as in 1)

Lone is a Midi controller stripped back to its simplest form: a single knob! This handcrafted knob is for the musician that doesn’t require a large set up for a performance and is perfect for mapping and controlling single inputs. Its aim is to bring a sense of personality to an object that is often complex and mechanical, giving it a new interpretation through craft and aesthetic while maintaining its musical functionality.

Lil'bitty Light Sensor

Lil’bitty Light Sensor

Access to a good light meter can make or a break a photo, but the designs are often bulky, archaic in user-friendliness, and expensive. The Lumu light meter is reduced to the size of the round sensor, eliminating the need for a separate handheld device. Instead, it works with your smartphone using a dedicated app for taking luminance measurements with a spectral response sensor that works like the human eye. Why not, since you already have your phone with you?!

Hyper Vehicle for the Senses

Hyper Vehicle for the Senses

The Koenigsegg Prestera was designed with one purpose in mind… thrills! Inspired by extreme sports, the vehicle triggers the driver’s adrenaline with a dynamic carving and shifting weight balance system that creates stability in turns and exhilaration in the driver’s seat. Tucked in the cockpit, the driving experience is closer to that of riding a motorcycle or even a horse. This creates a deep connection between driver and machine where even the smallest movements are shared.

iMessaging With iBackpack

iMessaging With iBackpack

Love the idea of owning the iBackpack, a simple communicating tool for cyclists. The backpack features a transparent window through which your tablet (aka iPad) can be seen. It syncs in with your Smartphone via Bluetooth and using a special app, you can let the world know if you are going to be taking a right or a left turn. The Smartphone doubles up as a rearview mirror and relays info like break signal or emoticons and messages to the tablet.

Earphones With A Play

Earphones With A Play

The Freestyler earphone incorporates a very fun element to their design. A part of this earphone is made out of special coated wire that can be easily twisted and turned into a shape. This means you can easily store them or wear them in-ear. The special wire in the middle is for clipping to the collar or the pocket. You can bend it to really cool shapes! Kawaii!
