It’s inlayed with some mother-of-pearl work and looks like the Korean ‘Najawnchilgi’ lacquer ware craft, but Gyo-Ji is actually a translation device. Compared to the ViewTrans that we saw recently, this scroll features a rolled-up screen and allows you to write the foreign script directly onto it for translation.

So it’s summer. You get kinda tired of the skin-bubbling heat, so you decide to head to the chill zone for some much-needed ski or snowboard or sled-dog action. You get out there and you get injured in a major way! Who comes to the rescue? Wolves. Well not anymore! Now there’s the CARV, aka the Compact Alpine Rescue Vehicle as designed by Matt Hardman.
With a name like Hardman you imagine dear M.H. must be a one bad mother designer. And having a reputation as a bad mother designer and alpine rescue expert AND total bad-ass mountain man, you know he’s got his brain in the right place with this four-track monster from ice heaven.
A350H Airliner design is inspired by the shape of a dolphin, it has an aerodynamical form to achieve high speed with minimum effort. As a new type ofairliner, A350H has been designed to be more friendly to the environment by using cryogenic hydrogen that is contained in high pressure tanks.
You say you live in an apartment complex where you pay for your rent + electricity, and that’s it? Check it out. You get yourself one of these bad boys, (or 2, or 3,) and hook them up to the water pipes, and bam! Your on the slick road to free home electricity. It’s the “Mini Hydro Turbine” from Yanko frequent Jin Woo Han. Don’t mix up the cords!

Relax, work, party or play; whatever your mood for music, imagine controlling the flow with a gesture alone. No shuffle or playlists required, just a good old SHAKE! I’m talking about the flOw, an interactive set of soft silicone speakers that respond to your vigor by choosing the tracks on your iPod and playing them. So if a bunch of friends are around and you shake the speakers hard and fast, expect some Rocking Music!
Your hands are gesturing but I do not understand! Is it me or are your hands telling me something?
Comprehending sign language is not an easy task, but should that be a hindrance for communication between you and a vocally challenged person?
I guessed not, hence this Sign Language Translator will be the apt solution for you to transcend borders of gesture-based communication.

Designer Evan Jardee takes on a redesign project for one of the most well-known models of modern industrial design in the world. In the whole world! The polaroid camera. If you think about it, you can almost certainly pop up an image or two in your head about what the camera itself looks like. Everyone knows what it does. How about taking that instant-print concept though, and adding more functionality, then also changing the form almost entirely? Sounds like fun!

Allow me to introduce to you Monami, French for ‘my friend’; but here a project by the versatile Andrew Seunghyun Kim.
