Niektórzy w czasie trwanie własnego dzieciństwa, przy drobnej pomocy dorosłych, spełniają wszystkie swoje marzenia. Inni muszą czekać aż do emerytury, aby móc bawić się jak na szalonego staruszka przystało. Nowy wózek inwalidzki z funkcją śledzenia przewodnika [wideo]
Nasi dobrzy znajomi z firmy Hyperflesh wyprodukowali nową, jak zwykle wyjątkowo realistyczną maskę. Tym razem padło na gwiazdę serialu „Dwóch i pół” – Charliego „Tiger blood” Sheena. Przerażająco realistyczna maska (wideo)
This is a beautifully simple example of brilliant green packaging design. It solves three common product design problems at once by (1) providing sturdier packaging for shipping shirts, (2) making it easy to recycle and (the best part) (3) having it transform into something sustainable, reusable and useful that works with the object in the package. The unassuming exterior of the so-called HangerPak looks conventional enough, with curved-and-folded ends to keep the inside wares from crumpling. Flipped over, however, and it reveals a simple set of instructions for converting the cardboard shell into a shirt or coat hanger within a few short steps. If you, like many of us, always find yourself short on hangers then this is in the product design innovation for you. Moreover, it is simple, cheap and easy to construct and could be easily marketed and licensed to existing environmentally-savvy manufacturers around the world.
There are the quite direct light-up door handles that illuminate and look like light bulbs, but there are also color-changing ones that shift to indicate occupancy (green for empty and red for full) or car door handles that illuminate upon touch to help you open them at night. Whatever the application, these can be clever ways to find the nearest entrance or exit in the dark, to communicate something to an occupant or visitor or simply to add another easy-to-spot light source that could be triggered by a switch or a simple turn of the handle. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
No one wants to talk about it, but there is something odd about leaving public (perhaps even private) bathrooms by way of a grab-and-twist knob, handle or other hand-held object. The solution is simple, safe and sanitary, but still rarely implemented. Toeopener has a nice ring to it, and speaks to its functionality as well as the photos or videos – simply use your foot instead of your hands. This plastic-bumpered metal bar screws into place, making installation (and removal) easy as well.

Posted by hipstomp | 30 Aug 2010 | Comments (19) I have to recaulk my bathroom sink, an infuriatingly small-bowled object that splashes water everywhere yet is astonishingly heavy. It's a solid chunk of porcelain that doesn't deliver good functionality for the amount of matter it consists of, and I dread having to pull it off the wall cleat so I can scrape off the bad original caulking job, which was apparently done while the contractor was having a seizure. If I had my druthers I'd own Santa-Monica-based design studio Minarc's RUBBiSH, a sink made from recycled rubber . Melting down old tires is an awesome way to make a sink--not only are the resultant sheets easy to clean, they're only 1/8" thick and can simply be stretched over a form to give them shape, resulting in a super lightweight sink. via 3 rings and architect magazine
Posted by Robert Blinn | 23 Feb 2011 | Comments (7) Core77 had the opportunity to be invited into Dror Benshetrit's Studios to take a glimpse at QuaDror , his new structural joint. QuaDror is a lap joint construction that provides for limited freedom of movement without the use of a traditional pin. The design is elegant enough to prompt wonderment that it hasn't already been built in the world, even as forgotten carpentry.
what a makeover! this made me feel 'myownapartamentsick' even more than ever :) bulb-lamp is great, i also made something like that, but there were less bulbs so the effect wasn't that stunning. love the shower, look really great, also the brick wall and, what surprised me, that green tone in the bedroom. you had great ideas and you fortunately put them into effect.
Gravity is a possible, but not necessary, starting point for the design of every structure and object we occupy or use. What if we stripped away this assumption and began shaping space that can work from any perspective and at any angle? Bureau Spectacular created this incredible installation that turns what we know about up and down sideways, spinning it around at increments to create a fully circular experience of space. It completes a full rotation once per hour, forcing occupants to keep up or get out.
A Hood That Will Make All The Difference Blockbuster Hollywood movies can bring on the spotlight to lesser know disease and medical conditions. For example, After Rain Man we all knew what Autism was. That story told us how autistic people suffer from impaired social interaction and communication. In children the condition is heightened with sensory disorders and even minor noises can disturb them. A recent research suggests that stimulants like music, aromatherapy, and textured toys can help alleviate the condition.
For those who like laying back in the garden and leaning against a sturdy tree or bush while quietly reading a book, this grow-it-yourself natural wood furniture concept might readily take root in your imagination. Best of all, you can watch while your favorite new seat grows right up from the ground in your own backyard or from a pot on the patio or porch. While the growing framework does not require growth to make it work, the insides of the chair (designed by Michel Bussien) evolve right before your eyes. In short, this is more about the pleasure of gardening and change over time than it is about a practical seat design.
Growing a garden has never been easier, complete with vegetables no less. For those of us who are DIY types but do not know the first thing about gardening (or how to grow anything inside either), this roll-out all-in-one pre-planted garden for beginners is perfect. How does this delightfully green idea by Chris Chapman work?
Practical or not, when you make something yourself for your it adds a layer of engagement with your environment, interactivity with your own interior spaces. These do-it-yourself speakers may not be functional but they sure are funky. The idea here by Jocko Chan is simple: as the bamboo grows, so does the quality of your sound system – piped up through the stalks and into the room.
