Tesla is pretty much the king in the world of all-electric cars that offer a killer performance. It’s only natural that the reigning monarch be challenged, and Porsche apparently intends to do that with the Mission E Concept.
Crosswalk buttons (when they work) are something like honorary bros – you press the button and it clears the road for you to walk through. It only makes sense that this button be treated like the bro that it is, and rather than a cold push, the interaction with it can be a much warmer fistbump.
In another life, Flyte would have been a mystical yogi who has unraveled the secrets of meditation. Staying disconnected from the rest of the world, this bulb floats above its base, probably to show off its detachment from worldly affairs.
Images and art by Italian photographer Giuseppe Colarusso are quite tantalizing, sometimes creating a surreal world, and often playing with the idea of something that’s possible, but really improbable. Starting off on the path of creativity and off the usual, Giuseppe got his first photograph by creating a pinhole camera out of a shoebox. He used a photographic paper at the bottom of the box and a hole at the center of the lid to get the camera into action.
Water is precious, and every drop saved is a big deal. And when we get to save it in such elegant forms, well that’s just the icing on the cake. Royal College of Art student Simin Qiu has designed a faucet that saves water by swirling it into elegant patterns.
We love the idea and thought that went into creating these e-Ink shoes. The Volvorii Timeless shoes show quite an interesting idea and design. The exterior of the shoes is an e-ink display that works with a Bluetooth module to connect with your smartphone, and to allow customization of the design/patterns on the body.
The giant Birdsnest does not leave much to be desired by way of looks, or the allusions of comfort. Birds would probably have little use for a nest like this, but humans, we’re sure, would enjoy its comforts and novelty. We can’t say we’re in love with the jagged wooden edges, but overall, the design from OGE CreativeGroup is quite lovely.
It’s about time the prophecy of Back to the Future came true. Well, it’s 2015, and the hoverboard seems far away, but thankfully, we do have those sweet auto-lace shoes from Nike. As much as Nike’s idea does look like that in the movie, it’s more desirable to do that auto-lacing thing better. That’s exactly what the Powerlace sneakers intend to do. It looks like a regular shoe, and has a solid auto-lace mechanism that does not depend on motors, batteries, and springs.
Trion, and by association, the Trion Nemesis are both new names in the supercar game. And as things stand, they might as well be here for the long haul. I say that because I’m smitten with its good looks and excellent form. Top of the line model Nemesis N1-RR comes with a humongous 9.0 liter twin turbo V8 engine that has 2000 horses at its command. This motor will be mated to an 8-speed sequential transmission. Working together, the arrangement promises a zero to 60 mph time of 2.8 seconds, and a top speed of 290 mph.
Ever since the umbrella first showed up, it has had the same basic appearance. A stick to hold it, and a cloth or some other material up top to stop the rain. All that is about to change if the Air Umbrella goes through. In essence, it is still the same principle, as in you hold a stick, and stay under a surface that protects you from the rain. Except, here the protecting surface would be air, not the usual fabric that we are used to.
