Toasty Mug: The Hand Warmer Mug





This hand warmer mug was designed to make tea and coffee drinking even more satisfying. Featuring an enveloping and ergonomic handle, the “Toastymug” fits perfectly in the hands. Thanks to its special shape, it keeps the liquid and your hands warm. Perfect for those cold winters. “Toastymug” is handmade by craftsmen in the Ceramic District of Montelupo, a little town near Florence (Italy). Available in two vibrant colors: grey and green.

This Hammer Will Hurt ‘Em

The Hammer in Hand concept integrates a clever window-shattering hammer, which can be used in case of an emergency situation in a train or a bus. Coming from a state where such accidents occur on a regular basis, it will be reassuring to know that safety implements like this are easily deployable by commuters. With a few tweaks here and there, I’m sure we can build this idea into something bigger and efficient.

Door Handle for Dummies

Admit it- you’ve approached a door and had trouble figuring out whether to push or pull. Even though we’ve all experienced this, it can still be embarrassing! Here’s a solution: the Push/Pull Affordance Rotating Handle was developed from a series of cognitive tests that revealed a correlation between handle shape and the directional guess the user has to make. When the user sees its flat surface they will push, and when they see the pointed surface they will pull. It’s a simple concept, but oh-so-smart!

I’ve seen swans giving their babies a ride around the lake on their backs, I’d never thought of hiring one to carry my wallet, lip gloss, phone and notebook for me. Clever.

The Ultimate Bike Handle

Okay first of all, WOW. The simply named Bike Lock probably took some real ingenuity to create and I would LOVE to see a prototype. The handle itself can be detached from the main frame and used as modified bike lock but wait, there’s more. It can also function as a bike stand when you park it indoors. CLEVER!

Enlightened Door

The very stylish ORB Door Handle can be used in diverse scenarios thanks to the integrated LED light ring. For a bathroom door handle, a lit-up ring can indicate the room is busy. For a hotel room door it can signify DND and for the children’s room it can be the nightlight!

This Ring Fits Me Right

Those of you, who travel by cars, please move on to the next post, because this one is just for my friends who take the bus and trains like me! Overhead handles and rings, tell me about it! If god wanted us to be of the same height, he would have done so…..we don’t need the transport department helping us out there. Press, Change Length is a concept that allows the user to adjust the length of the grip ring so that we can keep a comfortable posture while standing in a moving vehicle. Buses in my route need this so badly!

Press, Change Length is a reddot design concept winning entry.

Designers: Jia Shenghui, Zhou Hailun, Liu Zhen & Chen Jian

Pushy Handle

Unlike traditional door handles, the UltraLatch doesn’t twist or turn.  Instead, this functional hardware simply pushes or pulls to open an interior door, making it possible for small children, physically challenged adults, or anyone who’s arms are full to enter and exit safely with a mere 1/2 inch push or pull. Inspired by the auto gear shifter, the Ultralatch was designed to conform to the shape of the human hand and is not only ergonomic, but retrofits to most existing cutouts on standard doors.

Designer: SOSS

Spoonachos


My brother sent me the link to this incredible creation :D (Thanx Bro!)

Spoonachos! Awesome to manages your salsa to chip ratio!! Gizmodo calls them the Holy Grail of Chips and I have to agree :D

Sadly, Spoonachos are only a concept at the moment, designed by Denis Bostandzic. But I have a gut feeling that it won't be too long before we see them in supermarkets! Definitely hope so!...
