Stackable City Cars

November 4, 2007

The City Car, a design from the MIT Media Lab, is a stackable, foldable car concept that hopes to alleviate traffic jams. These cars—which are supposed to be rentable near major transportation hubs such as airports and train stations—solve the last mile of public transportation by giving folks a small, low-cost way to drop their vehicles altogether. The cars themselves are supposed to be incredibly agile, being able to turn on the spot and drive sideways to parallel park.
But humans being humans, if the neighbour has a Jaguar, will you settle for something that you don’t even own?

Vegetable Twister

November 4, 2007

 

Cucumber, potatoes, radish and many other types of vegetables are transformed into endless spirals and spaghetti. The selected vegetable is slipped on the twister screw and afterwards screwed in either the slicing attachment “spiral” or “spaghetti” as desired. By choosing a flat thread, even hard types of vegetables can be twisted through the Vegetable Twister.

A relief design of both slicing attachments, together with integrated openings, produces a highly decorative and distinctive effect.
