Paper Pot…

Posted: 03 Dec 2010 06:57 AM PST

Did you realize that it's the attention to detail that always makes a difference? Sure you can just have a bunch of paper napkins sitting on the sideboard or hang out a toilet roll in the loo. But if you want your place to look classy and elegant you need to invest in knickknacks like a napkin holder or up-scale tissue box. It need not be an expensive affair; it just needs to be different…like this Paper Pot!

Available in Black & White or dashing hues like in Orange, Pink, Green and Blue. It's sure to add the zing to your abode!

Designer: AI Collection [ Buy it Here | Paper Pot is available for $40 at the YD Store ]

For Scenes Above And Below The Sea Level

Posted: 03 Dec 2010 05:27 AM PST

UNDERABOVE is a dual-lens buoy-style camera that can take pictures of the underwater happenings and above the water happening, at the same time. The idea is to experiment and add more dimensions of picture taking while at sea. The clever design incorporates air in the top-half of the body and water in the lower half, to help it stay afloat. An LCD screen gives you a quick preview of the shots taken, and a timer facilitates self-portraits as well.

The symmetrical camera body is made with polypropylene, which has a lighter weight than seawater and floats easily.

I simply love this idea and wish its made in time for my next Scuba trip! Kudos to the SADI student and it being a Red Dot Winner!

Designer: In Kyung Han

One Component Wind Power

Posted: 03 Dec 2010 12:03 AM PST

How would you like your very own take-it-home apply-it-yourself wind power generator? How about a whole array of them? This is a design that’s just that, take it home, unpack it, screw it into the wall, connect it to whatever battery you’ve got that can hold generated power, and let it rip! This design is made up of blades, the generator, a telescopic shaft (so that the fan can be extended or “away”, electric power plug, and switch. With an array of 15 of these fans, you can power a household of four people for a month.

Oh my goodness! One of these fans, called “Wind Cubes”, could potentially generate 21.6 kilowatt-hours per month. Times that by fifteen, and you’ve got 324 kw, the same amount the designers of this project note is the amount a family of four uses per month. Seems too perfect!

The way these “cubes” work is to be attached to a wall (outside) with three screws, click the switch to activate, and sit back to enjoy the power your mother earth is providing. Multiple cubes can be connected to not only generate more power, but strengthen their collective structure, and the fans can be pulled out or pushed back and away depending on the weather.

DO WANT, VERY VERY MUCH. Can you imagine it? Free electricity! No wonder this is a Liteon Award winning design this year! Hooray!

Designers: Liao-Hsun Chen and Wen-Chih Chang

Dome of Justice

Posted: 03 Dec 2010 12:03 AM PST

This is one fabulous looking concept car, that I must say. Every once in a while a concept comes along that is not only fabulous in its plan, but fabulous in its rendering as well. Take a look at the realism in these digital illustrations and tell me you aren’t impressed by their excellence. Then lemme tell you about this car. It’s called the Astrum Meera, and it features several elements which play a role in safety, sustainability, and what the creators call “practical design.”

Practical design! Fa! Who could need such a thing! There are some people (people with lots of money in their pockets) who love practical design, that is, design that isn’t that far away from the real world, who are just ready and raring to go toss money around – practical designers, take a peek.

This car has built-in sensors near the exhaust that track the levels of CO2 and alert the driver should they be exceeding normal range. It’s got wheel rims which work with magnetic levitation, making the car fantastically light and fast. The mirrors on the sides of the car move down inside the vehicle, hiding when in park, rolling back out when the car starts up (my uncle use to have a car with headlights like this – so sweet!) These same mirrors have built-in cameras that display inside the car, allowing the driver sight without turning their head – especially useful in inclement weather.

And on top of all that, this mad maniac of a car looks really radical and totally tubular. It looks spectacular, yet real. I’m sure that was the designers intent. Rippin roaring good time of an auto.

3D Projections for Airplane Learning

Posted: 03 Dec 2010 12:01 AM PST

Winner of the 2011 Gold Design Award of Germany (aka the country’s highest distinction for design, aka the “Design Oscar”) is the following project: Lufthansa Brand Academy 360degree Tower project. This architectural masterpiece was designed by Dan Pearlman, Berlin brand and experience group, and consists of a 360° projection in the tower of Brand Academy. That’s right, a spacial experience consisting of three hundred and sixty degrees of digital projection magic.

With this project, Lufthansa is able to bring their collective knowledge together and present it to 25,000 employees and executive in a fantastic and engaging way. The subject under examination here is the local and global connections of international air traffic – much better with teeny tiny airplanes flying overhead, yes?

Berlin-based interactive firm WHITEvoid is responsible for the 3D visualization for this gigantic project. With this project, students are able to see real-time 3D visualizations of 16,000 daily flights, the entire system of viewing these flights completely interactive. This project is located in Frankfurt Seheim, the Lufthansa Brand Academy offering its employees a floor area of 1,100 sq meeters in which to train. Gorgeous!
