Interactive 3-D Pets In A Jar

Posted: 18 Jan 2013 10:52 AM PST

I love the Jarpet concept for being an innovative and interactive way of exploring the animal kingdom. Basically the Jar is a 3-D projector that hooks up to the computer. You can download information and the app for a 3-D projected pet that sparks into life when the Jar is turned on. Ideal for chidlen, it can turn into a hub for learning the lifecycle of a butterfly to owning a pet squirrel. Kids can enjoy vivid interactions with it, via multi-sensory technology.

There is a USB connection at the base of Jarpet, through which it is charged and transmits information. Online Jarpet shops will provide image data for various animals, and parents can make purchases according to their children's interests.

Jarpet is a 2012 red dot award: design concept winner.

Designers: Zhang Di, Zhao Tianji, Ma Yinghui & Cui Minghui

Kick Stand And Lock!

Posted: 18 Jan 2013 09:51 AM PST

Yup, that's what you've literally got to do to lock your cycle, when you are using the Quick Stand & Lock, locking system. The locking system is integrated into the stand in such a way that all you need to do is park your bike, and as you kick it's stand down, the number lock just gets into action. The clever thing even cuts you the step of actually chining up your cycle. Pretty clever if you ask me!

Bedside Beauty

Posted: 18 Jan 2013 09:42 AM PST

The simplistic Decale bedside table is a thoughtful design composed entirely of reclaimed beechwood and pine taken from used pallets. The construction is traditional in shape with slight differences in the angle (and color) of the legs that give it just a touch of modernity. Using repurposed wood means each table has a unique character with its own imperfections and subtle differences.

Blend, Baby, Blend!

Posted: 18 Jan 2013 12:01 AM PST

The FRXSH blender is refreshingly minimal compared to the many bulky, user-unfriendly designs out there. The remarkably small base is simple (even lacking a start button) and easy to use thanks to an automatic trigger mechanism that starts when the container is twisted in place. Focusing on verticality rather than beefiness, the design doesn’t take up a lot of counter space or intrude on the aesthetic of the kitchen.

Geometric Light Experiment

Posted: 18 Jan 2013 12:01 AM PST

Some lighting designs are all about minimal visual impact on the space in which they live and others, like the Dodeck light, are about filling space! The giant geometric structure that makes up the shade is composed entirely of wastepaper cardboard of a wide variety colors produced locally in Berlin. The individual parts are reduced to geometric basics that come together to form a unique crystalline centerpiece that also creates decorative patterns on ceilings and walls. Get it here!

Designers: Markus Dilger & Thomas Hiemann
