LED Bud Lighting Up

Just twist on up! The cap above the pedal, that is. It’s like a volume knob, opening the flower or closing it, bringing the light to a broader world or directing it to a sharper area. 32 warm and cold LEDs spread across four adjustable pedals on a pivot and twist head joint.

Take a peek at the black border image down there while I explain up here to see what I’m chatting at you about! Down from the light head there’s a twist joint that twists 300degrees (weird?) and a counter-weight on the bottom to hold the light up. There’s a couple of dimmers in here too- one for cold light, one for warm!

Fifteen vold D.C socket under the bottom base, 4 watts power consumed total. Kind of a small amount you might think. Are you all up into this?

Speed Away On Speedway

You wait till you’re legit enuf to drive and then you wish you didn’t have to! Truth is traffic snarls, parking woes, speedster and drunk drivers are out there to get you. So how about a future where cars no longer line the streets, they move magnetically, come in two modes and give you freedom from traffic jams. How about a future with the Speedway Concept Car? A future where we revolutionize the infrastructure facility by embedding the highways and streets with linear motors.

The idea is to enhance the current limited range and speed of the electric vehicles by putting in a linear motor into the highways. This external propulsion is embedded beneath the pavement and drives the vehicle by a drifting magnetic field. Due to the transfer of the propulsion power for long range drives into the infrastructure, the futuristic car can be lighter and nifty.

Förg says that the “contact-free operating linear motor can be installed beneath existing roads and therefore offer the possibility to implement the new system step-by-step, without derailing the existing system. During the ride, the infrastructure can be used to charge the onboard batteries.”

Speedway’s interiors transcend between two different shapes and modes effortlessly. In the City-mode, the car becomes compact thus saving space and resolving parking issues. In this mode the seats of the car are upright and elevated to give a better overview.

In the Speedway-mode, the aerodynamics of the car optimizes. The front seat turns around and switches to a more comfortable communicative position.

Förg also proposes that we build parking towers where the cars can speed away to (automatically) once you disembark from it.

I know many of you are going to shake your head and go…here’s another one of those sci-fi-movies-inspired thang, but I tell you something like this is quite needed. I mean, have you seen the traffic jams at peak hours? Once passionate, now I dread driving me car!

Induction Iron

The brief was to optimize the application of BASF’s plastic material ULTRADUR and the result was an Induction Iron. Utilizing ULTRADUR’s heat resistant heat resistant properties to his advantage, Therese came up with a bare minimal design that has been “stripped down to the essentials.” This cordless induction heating iron works through an electromagnetic field that transforms the energy directly and heats only the ironing plate.You may recollect the ironing board that is being used here, it’s that same flip-mirror one we showcased earlier.

Designer: Therese Glimskär in collaboration with BASF

Wife Acceptance Factor (WAF)

You read that right. The first technical term written in the “about” of this project sent to me is the WAF factor of this amp. It’s got a good WAF – it’s made for indoor use, not supposed for the garage. Aki Hirota’s made this amp to be for those who aren’t aiming to be in a band. The users of this particular bit of equipment are aiming to just jam on the singular personal tip.

To be clear once again here: the design is an AMP. It’s got a really good WAF number. The cabinet surrounding the amp is made of one piece of bent ply-wood and can be manufactured to have the minimum amount of glue and toxic materials. Too bad it needs any at all! What do you think of that?

It can be made in any number of any different finished colors, even made to match your guitar. Inside is a solid-state amp with a vacuum tube preamp section. The tubes are what you can see up there on top. They’re protected by a clear polycarbonate cylinder.

Front baffle is a custom-cut CNC machined wood piece, unique upon request to each amp unit. Made for no-concert-use only!

Book Case Genetics

Returning lumberjack slash designer Joel Escalona has a bookcase for us all that gets back to basics in a real metaphorical way. Or is it physical? What I DO have the real 411 on is the fact that this is definitely not for putting in the corner. Definitely this DNA is made for the center of the room. All seeing!

Escalona defines this particular case as a definer of “a significant part of your personal identity.” You bet! Fill this up with things with 4 sides. All seeing this is indeed because everyone from all sides can see it.

This ain’t no big brother, it’s the Book brother!

Pure Safe Water In The Tropics

AquaIris Portable Water Purifier is meant for folks in the tropical regions and is packaged as a really sexy looking bottle. The reusable removable filter is attached to a lanyard that sports all the usage instructions. You need to fill the water into the bottle and insert the filter into the special slot. The water travels under a layer of converter crystals where germicidal UVC rays directly hit every water molecule passing by, thus making it pure and safe to drink.
