Wearing red underpants over blue tights is not going to make you Superman! You need to exercise….and maybe beef up that chest with the Elastic Exerciser! This handy elastic rubber sheet is disguised as a mousepad. When no one’s looking you can do a rep or two and your secret will be safe. Same rules apply for Batman and brigade.
Camerang is a refined version of the balloon, stick and glider concepts of flying cameras. Infusing a sense of abandonment, the camera aims to capture pictures that are most natural. It actively takes shots as it flies through the air, while the central lens rotates automatically to fix its focus on the subject. The camera intuitively calculates the required lens angle as it flies and clicks a set of freeze frames as it orbits around the subject. Most definitely a fun way of taking pictures!

The Helix-IR concept is designed by Jean HONG & Dassault Systèmes DesignStudio team. It’s a wireless headphone that looks like mechanical wizardry with all the moving parts. The central part is made from sheet aluminum, laser cut and stamped. This configuration provides a lightweight, flexible structure complimented with high end finishing. It surrounds the head like an exo-skeleton. We don’t have much information on the specs but told the performance is top-tier for the hardcore audiophile.

If you’ve been lucky enough to visit Japan and see the majestic mount Fuji, then you understand why designers like Yuchen Liu are inspired by it. It’s perpetually surrounded by mist and that’s when it clicked for Yuchen Liu. The Fujisan Humidifer is an homage to mountain – purifies the air and puts moisture back into it. Beautiful, honest design.

While you may assume that bigger is better when shopping for a dining room table, you need to take the space into consideration. That gorgeous, extra wide table may look spectacular in the showroom but it will quickly dwarf a small room. Not to mention, you want your guests to be able to comfortably walk behind the chairs (not squeeze), even when they are occupied.
Most dining room tables measure around 30 inches tall with an average width of 36 to 42 inches. While that may not seem like a big difference, six inches can have a positive or negative effect on a room. Unless you absolutely have to, avoid tables that are narrower than 30 inches as things tend to get a little cramped if you have all of the seats filled.
Round or Square?
Although square tables tend to be preferred, if you do a lot of entertaining, round dining room tables are actually ideal because your guests can chat a little easier. Not to mention, since they sit on a pedestal, there are no legs to take up extra space. If you love the look of a traditional square table that seats four people but you know that on occasion you like to invite over an extra couple, consider buying one with a leaf that can be added and invest in two additional chairs that you can store in the spare room.
If you have a rug under your dining room table, it needs to measure at least four feet wider and longer than the table. This will allow room on all sides. No one enjoys sitting in a chair half on and half off of a rug.
Also, if you have a large chandelier, your dining room table needs to be 12 inches wider than the piece. This will balance the room and ensure that no one hits their head when they stand up.

This twist (literally) on the chair, the brainchild of designer Markus Johansson, challenges the straight, rigid, and traditional forms of the modernist aesthetic, presenting itself as a violent and chaotic swirl of solid wood frozen in time. Combining modern and age-old technique, NEST is constructed of a free form combination of round pegs that are bent and then drilled in a CNC milling machine for a precision fit. The pegs share an identical cut, making production easy and straightforward without sacrificing style.

It’s a strange thing that we’ll never fully experience what it’s like to see ourselves through someone else’s eyes. Seeing your reflection, or viewing photos of yourself is somehow different than how other people see you. Deception of Reflection by designer John Leung is a mirrored analogy of this phenomenon. The frame’s 3D honeycomb surface makes it appear as though the frame is magically reflected in an entirely different color, reminding the viewer that what is seen in the mirror is entirely subjective.

In the cockpit: two tandem seats, flight controls including a liquid crystal display embedded into the glass, throttle/joystick combination, rear seat display, and bucket seats.
