Redbull energizes cars now!

redbull_car_charger_1

Aside from giving you wings, Redbull attempts to give your car wings of its own too! The RedBull conceptual car charger is an absolute home-run for the brand and a pretty neat way to usher in the age of electric car charging. The charging station by RedBull mirrors the look of the classic energy-drink can with its memorable logo and iconic color scheme, allowing it to be recognized from a distance.

The move towards car charging would be a brilliant one, if RedBull were to take it up. They’re invested in a large way in all sorts of high-adrenaline sports, including the Formula 1 races. They’re no stranger to automobiles, and their brand is synonymous with instant energy. So, why not, I say!!

The stool with a wood transplant

zero_by_stool_1

What the designers have done with the Zero Per Stool is just ingenious. This stool uses its own waste to build itself! That too in a way that gives it such an incredible character… one that is unique to each stool.

The stool’s legs/base are cut from a sheet of wood. They’re made so that they can be assembled using wood joining techniques. The seat, however, is made from the scrap wood (offcuts) that gets left behind after cutting the legs of the stool out of the rectangular wood piece. The waste pieces are broken up and placed in a mold. Resin is then poured in, binding the pieces together, turning waste into artistic wonder… and officially leaving you with zero wastage and a stool you can’t get your eyes off!

Designers: Jang Won, Kyungsun Hwang, Min-a Kim & Hajin Yoon.

This drone knows Yoga!

drne_drone_1

While drones can fly, I’ve realized that they’re quite a nuisance when they aren’t flying. Their complex schematic and aerodynamic shape occupy a lot of space, and they aren’t really easy to carry around (in a car or a bike).

The DRNE proposes a solution that looks obvious and possible, but needs some work. The quad-motor drone’s four members fold inwards (propeller and all) to become a selfie-stick of sorts. Obviously the grip isn’t the most ergonomic, but the drone’s footprint gets pushed down by large amount. Essentially, you can now grab/pack the drone as easily as you would a bottle of water. Noice!

A different kind of Home-Delivery!

mobile_house_1

The home isn’t a product as much as it’s a space. However, the Mobile Home is given a product style treatment. You don’t build the Mobile home. You buy it, and it ships to your location, assembled and ready to use! The Mobile House is therefore a product, rather than a space, meaning it isn’t technically real estate. It comes on a moving platform and can be shifted anywhere, be it urban/suburban areas, or even scenic spots like forests or pastures. With the Mobile Home, you don’t even have to wait for construction (or pay separately for it). The home comes literally ready to use, and all you have to do is populate it with furniture/decor of your choice.

Understandably, the Mobile Home is rather compact. Its aesthetics and size rival those of the MUJI minimal cabins that were launched slightly over a year back. The Mobile Home is wide enough to fit on a freight-liner truck, and comes with a mezzanine floor with a skylight right above your bed so you can fall asleep to the stars, and rise to the beams of the early morning sun. Just take my money, now will you!!
