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.
Skulls, as we have found, make excellent seating spaces. All you need to do is find one that will comfortable hold your arse, and you could be on your way to doing so many great things, the least of which would be sitting on a giant fake skull.
Continuing with his very classy and creative work, artist Cory Barkman has come up with this very beautiful Intergalactic Coffee Table. The table takes on the appearance of a very retro-looking spaceship, and absolutely scores a win in the appearance department. The video here is especially interesting, and we could as easily believe it to be part of a sci-fi show trailer.
The Iron Vault desk is inspired by turn of the last century furniture fixtures. Apparently, such riveted and extra strong looking desks were all the rage in offices and businesses that time. We got to say, that strong, rustic look is quite interesting in itself. The table is crafted out of steel sheet and sits on heavy duty metal wheels to do the moving. Priced at $2600.
Bring a cloud to your living room, and appreciate its silver lining. Or maybe you could just enjoy having a nice, fluffy designer lamp. The Cloud Lamp might loom dark, but we’re pretty sure it can create a nice ambience.
