The Weight Recorder by Weiche Design Works.
This project seeks to analyse our body as a memory container that contains both physical and emotional experiences. By using two ordinary objects, a scale and a height chart, that translate biological data into a readable language which allows us to recall a particular experience or moment easily.
The scale and height charts might remain unnoticed in daily life but nevertheless, when encountered, they offer a significant ‘hint’. In this way, as long as people find interest in the objects, they will be touched and surprised. While people have diverse personal value systems, with this, everyone responds to the hint, not only the one who had the original experience. In summary, the aim of the project is to investigate the relationship between the body, psychology and an object, in terms of memory. Following this, the way memories, objects and human beings influence each other, will be analysed.

Mood Mugs have been cleverly designed with double wall insulation to ensure that your beverage is kept hot but your hands kept cool, eliminating the need for a handle and creating more cupboard space.
Happy Larry, Seriously Sleepy, Monstrously Moody, Horribly Hungover, whatever side of the bed you wake up on, your mug can reflect your mood!
Made from recycled drink packaging, designer Ed Chew has created the TetraBox ceiling light. Once installed, the lamp casts a cool web of shadows and shapes into the surrounding space. (see more pictures here)
The best design often comes from collaboration, but it can be near impossible to get your whole team in the same room. Whether you are collecting inspiration for a new fashion line or making final edits to a graphic design project, it’s always better to show than tell. Marqueed was created to efficiently bridge those distances and streamline your collaborative workflow.
Marqueed allows users quickly collect images from around the web, save them into public or private collections, and discuss them with invited collaborators. Marqueed was created by designers for designers. The app is in it’s beta release and the Marqueed team is looking for feedback from fellow creative people. Drop them a line on Facebook, and follow their page for feature updates.
Watch this video to get a quick idea of what Marqueed is all about:

The Copenhagen Wheel turns the bike you already own, quickly and easily into an electric bike with regeneration and real-time environmental sensing capabilities. The wheel harvests the energy you input while braking and cycling and stores it for when you need a bit of a boost. At the same time, sensors in the wheel are collecting information about air and noise pollution, congestion and road conditions.
