Smart Fridge by Ashley Legg
Smart Fridge Is Your New Recipe Card The Smart Fridge here is for those who have shunted cooking to a hobby and rely more on designer microwave meals. The idea is to give you a fridge that is intelligent enough to come up with a healthy recipe, depending on what you stock in it. Not only that, it guides you with vocal instructions, spoon by spoon, till you dish out the perfect-wholesome meal. A touch interface door glams up the appliance, creating the desire to own a piece that’s futuristic but may not be what you’re looking for! Designer: Ashley Legg

Connected TVs, fridge used in global cyberattack A smart refrigerator on display at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) last week in Las Vegas. Security firm: Global cyberattack was launched from more than 100,000 everyday appliancesGadgets included routers, televisions and at least one "smart" refrigeratorProofpoint said the attack occurred between December 23 and January 6 Poorly protected "smart" devices may be easier to infect and control than PC, laptops, or tablets (CNN) -- It's bad enough that we have to fear identity thieves who are trying to scam us with malicious messages sent from PCs. We now must worry about being targeted by our household appliances, as well. An Internet-security firm has discovered what they are calling a global cyberattack launched from more than 100,000 everyday consumer gadgets such as home-networking routers, televisions and at least one "smart" refrigerator. It's being called possibly the first proven cyberattack to originate from connected appliances -- the so-called "Internet of Things."

Sink dishwasher Split-Face Sink, Very Nice! It’s so natural for us to put all the dirty dishes into the sink and come back later to tackle them. Wouldn’t it be great if our sink got intelligent enough and cleaned up the mess automatically? Designer: AHHA Project

What Does Love Mean to a Four-Year-Old? | John Mark Ministries A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds, “What does love mean?” The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined. See what you think: “When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn’t bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That’s love.” “When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. “Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.” “Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs.” “Love is what makes you smile when you’re tired.” “Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK.” “Love is when you kiss all the time. “Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.”

X – tape, Hinge Print Tape by Hyoungmin Park & Jeongmin Lee for mmiinn &... Sealing With A Hinge So far you have been sealing your cartons with either duct tape or normal transparent scotch tape. If you were to have the option of the X-tape, I’m sure you would have used it. Design is not always about problem solving or functionality. Sometimes elements of surprise, like this optical illusion “hinge” tape gives creativity the fun-edge that it requires. Mr Lee & Mr Park, how about sealing it with a kiss next time? La promesse d'un réfrigérateur magnétique silencieux et écologique Le réfrigérateur magnétocalorique fonctionne selon un cycle en quatre temps, qui ne nécessite que de modifier un champ magnétique au niveau d'un échangeur de chaleur réchauffant (2) ou refroidissant (4) un fluide. « Je crois vraiment que c'est quelque chose d'important » affirme Nini Pryds au magazine danois Ingeniøren (L'ingénieur) pour présenter une nouvelle technologie touchant un appareil demeuré à peu près immuable depuis son invention : le réfrigérateur. Fini le moteur bruyant faisant circuler un gaz, comprimé dans le radiateur extérieur (ce qui le chauffe) et détendu à l'intérieur de l'enceinte (ce qui le refroidit). Ce nouvel appareil est magnétique : un mélange d'eau et d'alcool (comme le liquide de refroidissement des moteurs d'automobiles) se réchauffe et se refroidit alternativement au contact d'un électro-aimant. Le fonctionnement s'appuie sur l'effet magnétocalorique, découvert en 1881 par le physicien allemand Emil Warburg sur le fer. A voir aussi sur Internet

Instant dishwasher Not Your Typical Dishwasher Most dishwashers are the size of a washing machine, taking up as much space. What if you are a small family unit or a singleton? Designer: Robert Lange In Collaboration With Bosch Storm Drain Graffiti Great pictures of storm drain graffiti taken in Sao Paolo, Brazil. Added 5 Nov, 09: Less is the New More: Making the Most of Small Spaces Good Design For Living in Small ApartmentsAs people migrate to smaller spaces, good design helps a lot. This is something they figured out in Europe long ago, that if you don't have a lot of horizontal room you can go vertical. Tumidei in Italy makes some of the nicest stuff, like this unit with lots of storage under the bed. This unit just raises the floor high enough for beds to slide under. This one looks a bit clinical, but has two single beds plus a pull-out double bed in between. None of this stuff is cheap, nor, as far as I can tell is it available in North America, but there are ideas here that demonstrate how people can share a space and still get a little privacy, a good place to work and a lot of storage in a very small envelope.
