The Safe Line

The Safe Line

Statistics show that a number of accidents happen due to the difference of radius between inner wheels and the outer wheels, when a heavy-duty truck is turning. To help negotiate the turn, an infrared ray system with sensors, called the Safety Line, is installed on both sides of the truck. This line can detect the status of the turn and alerts pedestrians or other vehicles in the danger zone of the turn.

The Pleasure Pressure

The Pleasure Pressure

I am not a medic, but I do know that if you apply pressure to a wound, the compression generally helps to heal and alleviate the pain. The Anti-compression Bandages has been designed on the lines to help ease out the pain thanks to an external compression integrated within the bandage. It even allows paramedics to monitor the wound safely. I guess the concept can be tested in limited conditions to see if it really works. What do you think?

Cordial Chords

Cordial Chords

Mark Twain once observed that ropes possess an occult power to tangle themselves when you don’t look at them. Ropes and chords haven’t changed a bit in the past century. Thats why we all need ‘Cliphone’ to bond our headphone cables into submission. Designed in minimal style, the intuitive chord binder is a breeze to use. Constructed with silicon and and a Nylon snap button, ‘Cliphone’ can stretch itself to accommodate the fattest loop of headphone cables. Wish they came in a latex variant too

iPhone - A Case Sturdy

iPhone – A Case Sturdy

What if an iPhone could defend itself against the harshness of the environment it is subjected to? In a world less perfect than what Steve Jobs and Jonathan Ive expected it to be, KLOQE comes to the rescue. This next to naked Aluminium iPhone case mimics the profile of the phone with such a slender profile that the entire KLOQE + iPhone 5 combo is slimmer than the naked iPhone 4. And thats not even the best part. The slide to lock, two part, KLOQE’s patent-pending design makes it the only all-aluminum iPhone case that does not affect your phone’s reception.

Charger On The Seat

Charger On The Seat

Car chargers are so yesterday! How about a charger (USB Slot) integrated into your seatbelt? The idea is restricted to public transportation like busses, but I see so much value in the idea. Intuitively, most of us hang on to our phones and devices. At the most stuff it in our pockets or keep it on our laps. OMG, this is such a brilliant idea, please make it!

In A Flash

In A Flash

I love the structural design of the Condenser Flashlight, which is crafted from flexible materials. The reason behind this is to add flexibility, making it easy to grab the flashlight and even control the contours of the light beam. Simple physics and clever thinking!

Glossy Glow

Glossy Glow

The smooth form of the futuristic looking ‘Mona’ lamps by Lucie Koldova somehow reminds me of Eva from the movie Wall – E. Crafted for ‘Brokis’, in the designer’s signature style, the tinted glass pendant features sensual curves and an elegant presence. The lamp comes in two styles, pedestal and pendant. The pendant version is suspended using proportionately sized lanyards. The juxtaposition of metal and fabric against the glossy form of the lamp brings in a seductive appeal to the lighting system. Mona lamps dresses up your light in Haute Couture.

BMW R90R - A Classic Revived

BMW R90R – A Classic Revived

I have often felt that most of the present day motorcycles are over designed. The designers’ attempts at aggressive form language usually results in the rides ending up with a liberal dose of visual clutter and makes me crave to see the honest and clean design style of café racers back on the road. And exactly for this reason, transportation designer Kévin Biolluz’s reinterpretation of the iconic cafe racer BMW R90S on its 40th birthday is interesting.

There are too many “what if” questions in life and one of them is, what if Vespa came out with consumer good? The answer according to designers Rotimi Solola & Cait Miklasz, is the delightful Vespa Camera Concept. i love the Vespa design cues and the wonderful outcome.

Pretty Flight For A Flight Guy

Pretty Flight For A Flight Guy

The Aerial filming and observation mini helicopter systems have ushered in an era of filming spectacular and dynamic visuals at an affordable budget. Also employed in risky operations such as inspection of high voltage electric lines and surveillance, they greatly help to minimize human casualties. However filming with the mini helicopters does come with some constraints. For one, it requires a skilled team of at least two persons working in tandem.
