30 Weird And Awesome Inventions

On the other hand, there are these every day problems we all face, yet no one comes up with a viable solution that could solve them. So maybe, just maybe, one of the crazy inventions out there could actually prove to be useful with time, even if in the beginning they sound plain ridiculous? Like, for example, motivating yourself not to give up on a diet – if you got trouble saying no to that extra helping, start wearing a weight-watcher belt, so that everyone could see your progress with the centimeters!

Current problems for people There’s a war going on in the living rooms of the world – the never ending battle between home electronics and interior design. It might be the huge TV that really doesn’t work with the nice old cupboard, or maybe the heaps of cables that for some reason needs to connect to our stereo system. Just making it all connect in the right way is tricky enough. Making it blend in often feels impossible unless we would build it into our walls. People want music to sound good.

This speaker tries to answer all of the questions above. How we designed it for people The transparent design lets the speaker blend in to any living room out there. Usability The speakers come with a small wifi antenna, that can plug in to any computer, music player or smart phone out there. Rechargeable WiFi antenna that plugs into any headphone socket Sustainability Being big is good for sound quality, but not so good for shipping. Image courtesy of Category Tags. L’Usine à Design, une belle rencontre. Le concept du site ?

L’Usine à Design, une belle rencontre

Emilie Gobin et Charles Digby-Smith : L’Usine à Design se définit comme un site marchand autour de l’ameublement ET un site communautaire. Le design devient accessible économiquement (car moyen de gamme), géographiquement (car proposé sur le web) et intellectuellement (car il se démocratise). L’Usine à Design est en réalité à la fois site et boutique regroupant du mobilier et des objets design importés d’Asie, abordables et destinés à un grand public. Le Blog Retro Futur.
