Tactile Time

Tactile Time

Designed for the seeing-impaired, the Touch It watch makes it possible to feel rather than view time on its face. Hours and minutes are represented by raised bumps that rotate underneath a flexible surface, providing a tactile way of reading the time. While it was designed primarily for the blind, it’s also a great way to check the time without being rude!

The Z Cool Fridge

The Z Cool Fridge

The Z-Refrigerator is a refrigerator, which has the function of professional cook’s fridge and is the size of a double-door fridge. It is has the Z structure; when door is opened to the left, there is a large space, and to the right is a space where drinks and instant food can be stored. The fridge also saves energy by minimizing the amount of cold air escaping at once. I think I like it more for its funky design more than anything else!

Sh*t Happens

Yes, pets mess up the lawns, driveways, hallways…almost everywhere. And all we can think of doing is getting rid of the dump asap. If we take a step back and look at the alternative then the ‘Convertor of Pet Waste’ doesn’t sound like a bad option. The device basically converts the pet’s dump into a useful biological fertilizer.

Thin is in.

Thin is in.

The skinny on this minimal lighting design by Terrance Seah is just that…. it’s skinny! The Cloudline  lamp sets the mood with diffused LED light that emits upwards from its thin, linear structure. Lightweight and technically simple, it’s both easy to mount and easy to operate with its touch sensitive dimmer. It’s a great way to efficiently illuminate any space with little disruption to the aesthetic of rooms in minimal style.
