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 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 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.
Andrew Berg lamp features an Edison bulb seated on a handcrafted red walnut base, with a silver toggle switch and a cotton power cord. All those good looks and the finesse in crafting are going to cost you $200 if you want one.
Faux pebble rug designed by Ksenia Movafagh is made from 100% wool smartly turned into the appearance of pebbles. The rug does adequately mirror the looks of pebbles you’d expect to find around the shore, but we’re not sure if it will continue to keep its looks as the time passes.
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.
Shape Changing Lamps from N&N are more than just towers showing off bricks, and since the name leaves no suspense, I’ll just go on to the dramatic side and say these lamps change shape. It isn’t so much wizardry, but just the 360-degree rotatable shades at work. The shades are made from injected polycarbonate with translucent white panels, and together with aluminum frames, they give the lamps great looks. N&N has put three lamps in the series, named Magna, Opus and Tempo.
