The Yuca hairdryer is here to help make that part a little easier. The design is ergonomically adapted to be held in the variety of positions required for getting your hairdo just right.

Hairy Situation

Hairy Situation

Hairfall is a common problem across all generations and gender. It is kinda highlighted when we brush our hair or use a hair dryer. Unruly strands breakaway and gather in an embarrisong pile on the floor, and many a times we don’t find the time to clean the mess. With the Vacuum Dryer one can easily remedy the situation. One end of the nozzle works as a hair dryer and the other as a handy vacuum cleaner. Awesome!

The Luckiest Lamp

The Luckiest Lamp

7… it’s by far the most famous number, and probably the one most associated with happiness. It’s considered the luckiest in a countless number of cultures- so much so that 3 of them in a row will get you big money in Vegas! In Chinese culture it’s highly regarded because it sounds like the Chinese word for “life essence.” You get the idea… To honor the digit, this lamp takes special inspiration from its simple yet effective form.

Twist it Table

Twist it Table

Christian Reyes’ Giros table is characterized by a warm, simplistic aesthetic mixed with a subtle, customizable burst of color. The table’s central stem is threaded, making it possible to raise the two nested surfaces simply by rotating them. The user can place belongings on either surface, or collapse the levels altogether depending on needs of the moment. Easy to construct and even easier to operate, the Giros table finds harmony in minimal construction and versatile functionality.

Part Table, Part Planter

Part Table, Part Planter

The Treeangle Table’s artificial stone base extends through its walnut top, stabilizing the surface and creating a unique visual quality that mimics the form of a forest canopy. Accentuating the organic shape, the top section is hollow, making it the perfect place for a small plant. It’s a clean, modern interpretation of the stump base coffee table!

Intelligent Washing

Intelligent Washing

Smart Chime is an intelligent washing machine that RF scans the clothing tags to see if the wash cycle is safe for them. Essentially it makes sure you don’t end up washing delicates with cottons or color bleeding fabrics with the pastels or whites. It’s intelligent enough to intuitively indicate how much more time is left before the cycle is up. Nice concept and with certain refinements I am sure it will take clothes washing to the next level.

Laser Pointer Of A New Kind

Laser Pointer Of A New Kind

The Sliding Pointer is the next-gen in laser points. It breaks away from the traditional pointer design and is fashioned as a ring. It has two different kinda points that it beams: a circular ring and straight line. Both of them can be used to make your presentation more profound. Easy to use, one can now focus more on the talk and slides rather than fumble with a puny gadget in the hand!

Blood Sucking but Life Saving

Blood Sucking but Life Saving

Blood type testing is a vital but often overlooked necessity in emergency medical situations. Unfortunately, anyone requiring a transfusion must wait for type results from the lab before one can be given. What if we could test at the location of the emergency, or even on the way to the hospital? Designed for natural disaster situations, the Emertest offers a solution that saves valuable time easily and conveniently. And what better animal to base the design on than…. the leech. Not as gross as it sounds – check it out!

Shanghai's LightScraper

Shanghai’s LightScraper

Situated in the middle of a lake in south-east Shanghai, the SH Fish building serves as the focal point among 5 other proposed structures. The circular shape of the the floor plans was determined in relationship with the waterfront, giving it a 270° lake view inside. Thanks to its unique location at the tip of the peninsula, the design is reminiscent of a lighthouse. In much the same way, it serves as a beacon for anyone visiting this cultural hub.

The Slim Edge

The Slim Edge

Measuring only 4 mm, The Edge is one of the thinnest titanium watches in the world. You would think that only big bulky watches can look sexy but The Edge Watch forces you to rethink that notion. This fully jeweled analogue quartz movement displays a slim stature of only 1.1 mm. A skeletal design, sapphire glass crystal encasing the purist dial and plain hands, create a subtle impact.

Electronic Mosquito Coil

Electronic Mosquito Coil

The E-Coil uses frequency waves and light without scent or fragrances to repel mosquitoes and keeping them at bay. The traditional coil leaves ash residue and may have an annoying scent. This new e-version releases frequency waves identical to the ones that male mosquitoes release when flying, and this wave apparently irks the female mosquitoes and keeps them away. Tell me about it!
