Turns out you can do more in an Ikea than purchase high-design furniture, get married, or nearly break up with a significant other: you can eat, too!
The Swedish retailer, long a purveyor of meatballs and recently a leader in breakfast, as well, has teamed with Stockholm Design Lab to jazz up the look of its packaged foods.
Swedish designer Anders Kjellberg has developed a stylish concept design for Apple’s eagerly anticipated iWatch. Kjellberg’s design features an iWatch with FaceTime capabilities; it has an 8-megapixel camera built into the face of the watch that is also able to record videos in HD.
These imagination-driven, push-along toys take green vehicles to a smaller level.The ‘Tube Toys’ are a series of vehicles to assemble were the packaging is also part of the product, reducing considerably the amount of material discarded after purchase, and the added cost that traditional packaging involves.
Nike announced its new FuelBand technology back in January, an extension to its existing, uber-popular Nike+ mobile app. The Nike+ FuelBand, in a nutshell, is a wristband that tracks and measures every movement you make. It’s also Nike’s attempt to expand its reach beyond the serious runners and keep-fit freaks, and into the realm of everyday activities.
And now two Android apps have been realeased to accompany your FuelBand. Nike+ Basketball and Nike+ Training. These two new additions to Nike’s armory are now live for ‘athletes’ in the US, China, UK, France and Germany, and are designed to work in tandem with Nike+ Running and the Nike+ FuelBand.
The “Chork” is here! And it puts and end to the East/West culinary conflict. That may be stretching things a bit, but this new kid on the utensil block is certainly proving a hit with diners. The Chork is a cross between the fork and chopstick and has been designed to keep users of both equally happy, but with less clutter on the table.
The world’s first social streaming media player? If Google’s Nexus Q doesn’t confuse you, it could make your music and movie experience so much…better.
Simple is the intention here: the mysterious black ball is controlled by normal Android smartphones or tablet actions and pumps your playbook through your own audio-video system. Easy as plug’n’play.
In 2004 SANAA principals Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa were commissioned to build a small home in Tokyo. To complement the unusual succession of spaces, they designed a slender, inconspicuous birch chair that could function in nearly any situation.
Its unusual ergonomics made it instantly recognizable, with two iconic “bunny ears” that ostensibly relieved pressure on the spine. And this year, the company is trying a different angle on the chair, a wider one, specifically, with a seat two inches broader than the standard size. Some speculate that the wide version is targeted towards the, uh, more obtuse American market.
It can be impossible to know if you’re dressed properly for the temperature, until you go outside and confirm that, yes, you were the only one silly enough to wear shorts in the unseasonably frigid breeze.
Cloth is a fashion app–a way to share your daily wardrobe over social media–but it’s their latest update that has our attention. They’ve added weather information to your catalog of clothing.
We’ve been enamored with Hannes Harms for a while now, but his latest design might just be his best yet: the recent RCA grad was able to “reduce material, volume and components through flat electronics” to create a flat boombox.
The personal audio solution consists of a perforated sheet of acid-etched stainless steel… and apparently not much more than that, thanks to the flat speaker component. In other words, it’s something like a speaker grille without a discernable driver or speaker cone.
High-octane fuel. Ear-bleeding noise. Neck-snapping acceleration. Potential dismemberment. That’s what you get when you drive the 638-horsepower Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. Death is also an option. What do you do with 638 ponies? Good question.
Most people drive sane automobiles, and no sane car needs that much juice. But there is nothing sane or necessary about the ZR1. Like a lot of fast cars, it comes in black, which make it look dangerous. Unlike a lot of fast cars, this thing is actually dangerous.
