SMP Lights save wooden crates from going waste

At the Domaine de Boisbuchet in France, fruits are delivered everyday in wooden crates, and since there is no use left of the crates once the fruits have reached, these were usually thrown away or burnt. Sergio Mendoza looked to reuse this wood, creating objects that would use this very wood as the main material. Finally, they crafted lamps from that wood, each of which takes just 60 minutes to construct and has a unique shape and style, owing to the unconventional origins.

Where’s that sound coming from? It’s the Asspeaker!


As weird gadget designs go, this Asspeaker is very likely to be pumping out super weird farty sounds. It doesn’t just end at the weird shape, you’d be tapping and rubbing the butts to get this thing working. Tapping on the subwoofer will turn it on/off, and rubbing it with your hand will get the volume up/down. The small speakers connect to the subwoofer via Bluetooth. For added effect, the logo on the speakers has been designed to look like a tattoo. More images after the jump.

House Lights: The ‘homely’ lamp


House Lights from designer Kristian Aus seeks to bring out the connection that everyone shares with their house. The lamps are made from rotational-moulded PE and rubber part. Shades are attached to the “roof” of the house by means of magnets to facilitate easy removal and joining. The chimney on the roof is topped with a rubber piece that makes the house look even better.

Neptune MM2 micro-submarine concept


Neptune MM2 concept from designer Vil Tsimenzin is a sibling of the Tryton MM2 we saw earlier. The siblings are quite a match, not just in the finesse of renderings, but also in the medieval weapons they so proudly seem to carry. While the Tryton moves on the road, the Neptune has its eyes on ruling the waters. The micro submarine concept aims to capture the imagination of the 21st century adventurer by keeping its focus on wonder, imagination, and romantic legend, as is to be expected of submarines. Designed with a wee bit of Jules Verne like visual character, the sub offers comfort comparable to modern automobiles.

Architect envisions an entire Swedish city moving on rail tracks

A city that changes everyday, while endowed with all necessities, every building in the city moves on rail tracks and takes up a new position everyday. We don’t know how this thing can be practically implement, but we do know that it is going to be friggin awesome. The idea was put forth by architect Jagnefalt Milton for Norwegian master plan competition for the city of Åndalsnes.
