The only plans that materialize are the ones that have deadlines. And deadlines only work when they’re constantly staring at you in the face. That’s why we present to you the SuperYR Calendar. It lasts forever (unlike your planners that are only good for 365 days) and it’s much better than those pesky reminder/planner apps on your phone that stay hidden and jump out to scare you only when the deadline is approaching. Think of the SuperYR calendar as an essential for any student, professional or team looking to plan, execute, and achieve the impossible!
The greatest thing about the SuperYR is its size. It fits the entire year into its large canvas, giving you a complete overview on your year, allowing you to really plan things efficiently on a larger scale. The SuperYR comes with a transparent outer layer that allows you to go directly at it with a whiteboard marker. Plan daily, weekly or even monthly events by scribbling across the calendar’s 30inch X 40inch banner-sized canvas. Feel free to stick a post-it or two too. The SuperYR can take as much ink and repositionable glue you give it and can wipe completely clean with a single stroke of a duster or cloth. The SuperYR even comes with a magnetic sub-surface, allowing you to indulge your creative side and stick notes, prints, and even photos using magnetic pins.
You actually get two SuperYRs for the price of one. The calendar comes with a double sided print, one in portrait and another in landscape. Depending on your work environment or your space constraints, the SuperYR adapts to fit comfortably into your professional life.
The SuperYR is perfect because it’s (as its designers say) obnoxiously big. Imagine being able to visualize your monthly, quarterly, or even yearly plans at one go… being able to make updates, changes, add notes, snippets, etc to really capture plans, deadlines and events all on one massive canvas. So whether you’re an individual professional with a tight schedule, a student who really wants to manage their time, a creative who wants to achieve everything they set their mind on, or a collective team with great visions and goals, the SuperYR is perfect for you, because BIG plans require a BIG planner!

Convertible is one word to describe the Volkswagen XLAero, but probably a more apt word is Modular. Get this… the entire upper hood can be swapped with another hood design to create an entirely different car. Even the seating gets rearranged too, with one variant being a solo car (for the weekends), and another being your weekday commute (with seating for up to 2 people). What an incredibly out-of-the-box idea! This may sound like salesman-speak, but you’re literally getting two cars for the price of one! You’ve really got to marvel the freshness of this concept car’s approach!

Wait. Earphone Charging Cases can be controllers too?!? Why didn’t anyone think of that! Instead of having touch sensitive earphones (with all their single-tap/double-tap commands that are heckin’ difficult to remember) just put controls on the case, right? The AK G-12 does precisely that. The charging case also acts as a controller (with a dedicated volume dial), a screen (that displays what song you’re playing), and even comes with microSD card support (allowing you to play all your music directly out of your charging case!). Bluetooth earphones ultimately rely on the mobile phone for music storage and playback, but the AK G-12 allows you to put the music IN your earphones, making it truly revolutionary.
I also give the design major points for the pen-clip detail on the charging case that allows it to fasten easily to pockets and more importantly, look like a harmless old LAMY pen (that’s less likely to be stolen). Brilliant!

Cars are heading in two distinct directions these days: electric and autonomous. The E-tech, a project sponsored by Nissan, takes a look at what we might expect from the manufacturer in years to come. It’s packed with plenty of Nissan-ness, especially the brand’s unapologetic experimentation with interior and exterior style.
The exterior is defined by aerodynamics and smoothness. Low-slung with sharp edges and exaggerated curves, it’s aggressive and mean. The interior reflects this same sharpness across the cabin. It’s roomier than you’d imagine with wrap-around interactive screens for entertainment and system controls.

“Boulders” is a bold pendant lamp that simulates the fusion of two boulder-like concrete stones in a codependent cuddle position, challenging this rigid, robust material to be gentle, soft and even a little loving! As gentle as the two lights’ embrace is, the aesthetic is also gritty and masculine.
The single cast concrete body of the lamp is fitted with two separate LED light sources. Their separate positioning allows for a larger spread of light, making it ideal for dining areas, workspaces and other elongated areas.
