Pagan Rules For USB

Posted: 31 May 2010 01:30 AM PDT

The USB Link Together Series is a quirky reminder of the man-woman relationship. Literally symbolic of their union, one stick piggy-backs into the other from the rear slot, forming a USB chain for hooking up gadgets galore. On previous occasions we have discussed the merits and de-merit of continuous ports, but looks like the idea is catching on and worth exploring further.

Coffee On A Stick

Posted: 31 May 2010 01:00 AM PDT

Allow me to introduce you to the most revolutionary way of making coffee….directly from a stick! The Cappuccino Coffee Stick is a spoon laden with your favorite coffee-fix that dissolves deliciously into a steaming cup of water. Tear away the plastic wrap, dip the instant spoon and a few good swirls later; a piping hot cup of coffee is ready for your consideration. The need for "your type of coffee" can only be understood by an addict, I'm one and for me this design wins full brownie points. Now only if Nescafe Select were available on this spoon!

CCTV for Me!

Posted: 31 May 2010 12:15 AM PDT

This right here is a project that has directly to do with closed-circuit television, a system also known as CCTV. These sort of cameras are different from, say, broadcast news cameras because CCTV cameras are meant to only transmit to one spot. CCTV cameras are only supposed to be watched by one person, or one group. What this project in this post, “The Observer,” consists of is a personal viewer for everyday citizens allowing them access to any CCTV camera in the country.

The Observer’s concept mockup is simple, made of sheet steel and aluminum, but the implications are great. As designer Lee Murray notes, the world would be a whole new place if security was (once again) everybody’s business. Interested in mystery, surveillance, and spying, through this project’s exploration phase Murray began to wonder what would happen if a large number of people saw a crime, each of them in a different position, each feeling a different moral obligation to do something about it?

What if The Observer were turned into a game, where rewards were given to the first person to report crimes to the police?

What a wild world it would become.

No Need for a Plant

Posted: 31 May 2010 12:10 AM PDT

Behold! All the fun parts of making a plant grow and none of the stressful, worrisome thoughts about it being dead! That’s right, with this product, the “Show”, you’ve got your wall sitting or wall hanging piece of art that grows when it’s got enough water, then disappears when its dry. Designer Wu Shu-Cheng from Taiwan has this bit of decoration in mind for every plant loving yet allergy-having individual in this interior decoration world.

That’s right, there is no plant here. This project known as “Show” is just that, a show, no real plant, instead a lovely display that appears and disappears depending on the amount of water that’s sitting in it’s tray.

Such a strange, sensually elegant concept.

Global Game of Intuition

Posted: 31 May 2010 12:01 AM PDT

From the sweet streets of the Czech Republic comes this fabulous learning game made by designer Karel Vranek. This was originally a school project at the Academy of Arts – Architecture and Design Prague under the instructor Ivan Dlabac. This is a game totally based on intuition. This game is a ball, it’s probably totally a ball to play, and it completely lights up. This game goes by the name “Welcome!” and it’s made to teach every little person to get along through play. Check this sphere out.

This gray ball has a slew of buttons all over it. It’s a game of pass back and forth and learn as you go. Formed as a sphere to represent the world, this gameball’s the perfect size for little kiddies to get to know one another by. And might I say, if they work anything like the classic game “Simon,” they’d be a great desk item for design-minded folks around the world. Cutie!
