Mobi Electric Folding Wheelchair by Jack Martinich The Mobi electric folding wheelchair is a powered mobility device designed to meet the lifestyle requirements of our aging population. Mobi reflects the future of products for an aging population. Stylish and convenient, it offers urban mobility alternative to bulky, generic electric scooters. For added versatility, the design of the wheelchair features an innovative folding mechanism that allows it to be folded up and stored and transported in a vehicle without any need for disassembly. To encourage user independence and promote the user to be physically active, Mobi electric folding wheelchair is controlled similarly to a traditional manual wheelchair; the user pushes on the hand rims. However, force sensors in the hand rims detect the user’s physical exertion and add additional power to the wheels. Designer : Jack Martinich (Monash Uni, Caulfield) Dimensions: 700x700x500mm.

Mind-Blowing Apartment in Australia, the Ultimate Bachelor’s Retreat Here is a delightful and spectacular looking apartment located in Darlinghurst, New South Wales, Australia. Designed by Weir Phillips Architects, this three bedroom apartment bursts with freedom and craziness, which is what inspired us to say that this is the ultimate bachelor’s crib. The living room is the focal point of the house and accommodates some of the wackiest elements this loft has to offer, such as a SPA and a BBQ section. Other spectacular features of this apartment include a retractable roof, a concrete floor, a large study area and an indoor office with abundant storage space, intriguing art works and many, many more. We particularly like the fresh and vivid color palette as well as the overall youthful feel inspired by this place.
Vespa's Sexy, Unpronounceable Future | Autopia By Sean Smith, Hell for Leather The Vespa Quarantasei (46 in Italian) is a concept inspired by the 1945 MP6 prototype. Times have changed, though, and engine technology has made significant advances in the last 65 years. Although the Quarantasei is a styling concept, its engine is the real deal. [partner id="hellforleather"]The new hyphen-filled motor is an air-cooled, fuel-injected three-valve four-stroke. It’ll be available in two displacements: A 125 cc putting down 11.6 horsepower and 7.6 pound-feet of torque or a 150 cc good for 13 ponies and 9.3 pound-feet. So why’s it air-cooled? Water pumps and radiators are expensive and scooters are supposed to be cheap. Looking at the shapes and textures of the concept, it’s easy to be reminded of your girlfriend’s Venus razor. The bars are swept clean of anything unnecessary and end in wing-shaped LED turn signals. Photos: Vespa

Infographic Of The Day: Why Should You Care About Typography? I have a confession to make. There was a time, many years ago, where I thought that typography was fashion by another name. I didn't really appreciate how different typefaces function, and how the discipline evolved over time, under pressure from aesthetics and technology. And it makes me particularly red-faced to remember that I once flaunted that ignorance, going so far as to tell a noted creative director that bit about type as fashion. Created by someone who only calls themselves Noodlor, it does a pretty superb job laying out the basics of typography, such as the common types of faces, ranging from regular to condensed, and the anatomy of letterforms. From there, we get into more subtle territory: The basic principles of layout, which begins with the basics of direction, contrast, and rhythm: "Don't try to be original, just try to be good" — Spoken, originally, by a master of typographic clarity, Paul Rand.
