Spectacular Display Of Color - Tulip Fields (11) 1

Spectacular Display Of Color – Tulip Fields

At first glance it looks like as if these aren’t real, but a creation on canvas. Millions of tulips in various colors like pink, orange, purple, yellow, red, & green create this amazing effect. Both the flower & its name originated in the Ottoman Empire, although tulips are associated with Holland. A tulip isn’t actually a Dutch flower as many tend to believe. And as a matter of fact, tulips were brought to Europe in the 16th century. The tulip, or “Lale” as it is called in Turkey, is a flower indigenous to certain parts of Central Asia. Though these amazing fields are like a rainbow, this colorful landscape is a short-lived phenomenon as once the flowers are gone, there comes the regular crops of vegetables.

In Dutch more than 10,000 hectares are dedicated to the cultivation of these flowers, & more than three billion tulips are grown each year & two-thirds of these are exported, mostly to the U.S. & Germany.

Weight scale with a spin

Oh the dread of standing on your bathroom’s weight scale. That anxiety you feel as you step onto a device that most of the time delivers only disappointing news. Well get over the fact that you have been a little self indulgent lately and probably should have avoided having that daily Starbuck’s coffee milkshake with luscious whip cream, rich chocolate shavings and smooth chocolate syrup drizzled over crunchy toffee crumbles….. guuuuuu… heart attack in a cup…..(drool). Anyway, what was I saying? Oh yeah, so you are a fat pig and being told that by your scale pretty much sucks. Well now it can be more fun with this latest design by phenom Jaren Goh. His “Fullscale” weight scale design is a novel and fun way to find out just how bad you been. Stand on the scale and go for a ride as you are spun towards your magic number. Simple, fun and still depressing, kind of like dating a playmate.

Designer: Jaren Goh

Texts from the designer:

Stand onto a weighing scale and you see two regions, the “viewing” region and the “foot rest” region. Instead of separating the “viewing” and the “foot rest” region, I took both of these elements and combine them into a singular and harmonious feature. Therefore now the “foot rest” is also the “viewing” region. Instead it offers to show the whole dial, which there is not a need to hide it. The dial becomes the façade of the product. It functions just like a normal scale should but will produce a different first user experience.

Flat, black and all that

Since Apple’s iPhone was such a runaway success, the entire mobile phone industry has been playing catch-up with the pocket wonder. Jonathan Ive’s (Apple’s Chief of Design) minimal flat black screen design has instantly become a gadget icon and seems to be the inevitable future of mobile phone designs for everyone looking to grab market share. The problem with this design direction is the very limited aesthetic potential. How many ways can you reinterpret the flat black touchscreen screen? Well designer Jaren Goh has done a pretty decent job of putting his own spin on this movement with his “Basic Tab” mobile phone design. He has masterfully taken softer side out of the iPhone silhouette and gave it a more edgy, masculine appearance. His clever use of red translucent materials mixed with chrome harkens more retro future funk sci-fi creations like 2001 A Space Odysseys “HAL 9000″ and the Cylons on Battlestar Gallactica.

Designer: Jaren Goh

Texts from the designer:

The heart of the design for this mobile phone does not lie on the technological advances it had in it. It lies on being a normal phone and was designed to complement our fashion and the way we dress and not to evoke too much technological gadget traits.

On the front lies a lush wide black screen and nothing else to steal anything away. The screen resides on a metal slab to add volume and a premium touch to it.

Perhaps a better way to show how this design correlates to fashion is the camera tab on the back. Instead of having it looking like camera shutter or lens cover. It was designed using features found on handbags and fashion accessories that is so everlasting.

Hot Tatra

The last ten years has seen the resurrection of legendary auto brands like the Maybach, Bugatti, Healey, Mini and recently announced Alpine car brand. Tatra Motors, the third oldest car company on the planet behind Daimler Mercedes-Benz and Peugeot was the inspiration for this new concept design by Czech magazine AutoDesign&Styling. They asked designer Mike Jelinek to create this concept vision of the Tatra of the future. The result is the 903 Concept, a fuel cell luxury sportscar with innovative aerodynamic solutions. Jelinek adds, “The water drop shaped back refers to one of the most characteristic values of Tatra, the aerodynamics – same as covered rear wheels.” At present, Tatra only produces heavy trucks, but the this latest commissioned concept may get enough people excited to convince them to relaunch their passenger car line. Fingers crossed.

Beer gut Saver

I just love ideas that come from outside “influences”, like “oh man, I may be totally blitz right now but we should totally head to Vegas tonight!” or “If I had money, I would totally open my own bar…but a cool bar, with every kind of beer from around the world…and every kind of nachos from around the world too…” Well dear friends, thank god most of us usually pass out before such genius ideas ever come to fruition. I present “the Kegstand” by Michael Roller, born of an apparent need to consume more beer more elegantly in your backyard. Never again feel the shame of drinking with your buddies in the backyard from your plastic trash can, now you can be the life of the party and Mister Cool with this plastic trash can/ keg housing / oh what the hell am I writing about anyway… you get the point. It’s a giant plastic garbage can that makes it easier for lazy people to get their drink on faster and comes with cup-holders. Britney Spears approves!

Designer: Michael Roller

Texts from the designer:

As we began defining our concept we discussed sustainability, realizing the keg lifecycle is optimal – rent, return, refill – then rent again. So we went into the field and looked for other opportunities to improve the keg experience. We discovered that the three key areas in need of our help were transportation, maintenance, and entertainment.

We added handles and wheels to our concept so that the Kegstand can easily transport a keg from the store to your backyard.

Second, we evaluated the required maintenance while using a keg. 10 out of 10 college students prefer cold beer; so submerging the keg in ice is essential. Here’s where it can get tricky: Users have the daunting task of lifting the 15.5 gallons of beer into an aluminum trashcan. Because the host house sacrifices their trashcan, trash becomes unmanageable, piling up around the house to be cleaned up the following day.

To address these issues, we broke the keg cozy down into two parts. Users now only lift the keg about a foot onto the base, then slide the top half over the top and buckle it down. Dump in the ice and you’re ready to go. When you’re finished, a plug allows for easy drainage of melted ice. Built in hooks let the hosts hang a garbage bag to do their best managing all the empties.

Finally, we wanted to make the keg the center of the party instead of that guy. We added a cap display so you no longer have to ask, “What kind of beer did they get?” Then we added a cup dispenser and serving tray so you don’t have to jockey for position waiting to fill up.

Blockenspiel…you know, for kids!

Bust out the aspirin and put down that toy AK-47 fully automatic machine gun you were thinking about buying Junior for his birthday and think about giving the gift of music. Check out the latest in getting your groove on like a tyke, this ‘AMK’ is a modular sound toy specially designed for preschool children. Kiddies can independently play and combine sounds through plugging these uniquely programmed music blocks. Designed by Berlin based PKNTS, this has my vote for a “minor” hit.

In interaction with the computer, single sounds and entire sets can be transferred  to sound blocks.

The children can independently play and combine the sounds through plugging these blocks.
