float pilsner flutes

January 31, 2007

 

The float pilsner flutes can be used to serve hot or cold liquids. The suspended bowl design at the bottom of the glasses serves to elevate condensation away from the table surface, making the use of a coaster unnecessary. When used for cold drinks, beads of moisture from condensation cling to the rounded underbelly of the glass, adding delicacy to the optical effect. Whatever you serve, it is the liquid inside which is emphasized, becoming a lens of liquid color, suspended within the glass, projecting a play of colored light onto the table surface.

Polaroid reborn? Zink, a company whose first product will be a stand-alone printer that’s about the size of a deck of cards.

Rocket Fishing Rod

January 31, 2007

 

As if fishing is not muscle degenerative enough sitting by the lake the whole day without moving an inch…

The Rocket Fishing Rod eliminates the need for casting out and incorporates a mechanism which fires out hook, line and sinkers within a unique and patented capsule that will double as a float when in the water, alerting the user when a fish is biting the bait. The only effort now is to reel in  for retrieval of line with or without fish.

MP3 3tt3

January 28, 2007

The designer says that you can navigate using the side keys and the ring or just use the ring as a hole for your lanyard… nice… but isn’t it a bit excessive? Either keep the frame or the ring, not both… but its nice if I don’t think about it and be critical…

Update: Greg says “It’s because you can use also the frame to put the Mp3 player on your belt.”

Klop filtering ashtray

January 28, 2007

Klop is a filtering ashtray, using plant leaves. It’s can be also an object to measure the cigarette smoke effect on smoker environment, the more your smoke, the more the plant is sick, made of ceramics and recyled plastics. Actually I can do the same by not watering the plant and deprive it of sunlight… hey… actually it makes sense too, the smoker will die without water and sun too… Seriously, I like this concept.
