Staying Hydrated for Dummies

打印

Now, here’s a design everyone can use, because it doesn’t matter who you are… you’re either not drinking enough water or not often enough! Especially useful for those who get busy at work, Drinki is designed to keep you properly hydrated throughout the day.

It features a top lid infuser so you can add in your favorite tea leaves or other flavors. Because it can be used for tea or cold water, it also sports a cute, glowing temperature gauge that mimics the shape of a water droplet so you can always ensure your water is just right. Because it’s easy to forget to hydrate, it alerts users with a sound and vibration alert when it’s time to quench. A digital happy face at the bottom of the water droplet screen will track your progress and display a happy face when you’re staying hydrated. Alternatively, it will rock a sad face if you haven’t sipped for an hour. No water in 2 hours = dead face. So drink up!

Telling Time Through Tints!

The 12-hour clock is possibly the most common wall clock in the world. It finds itself in every household, on a wall in the living room or bedroom, above your television or on your bedside/study table. It breaks your 24 hours into two halves, better known as day and night. However, the 12-hour clock doesn’t tell you when it’s day or night. It just tells the time.

The Dusk will tell you the time, but through its design, will also tell you the time of the day. Sitting on your wall like any conventional clock, the Dusk’s clock face comprises two discs of polarized acrylic glass. The polarized discs rotate with time, turning darker as the polarization begins to kick in. Completing one full rotation every 24 hours, the discs go from transparent to opaque based on their orientation with respect to the polarization direction, forming an ever-changing canvas behind the hour and minute hands to tell you much more than just the time.

Transparent/light during the day, and turning dark around sunset, the Dusk clock tells you the time while hinting at the am/pm too, using light and dark colors to indicate the color of the sky at the time of the day. While it tells the time like most conventional clocks, it acts almost as a window into the outside world, letting you visualize the sky going from dawn to dusk and back… a natural phenomenon in an unnaturally beautiful and simple timepiece!

The dimension of Dusk is bound to the Golden Ratio. So common throughout nature’s form – ferns, flowers, seashells – the harmony of the Golden Ratio arises from its unique capacity to connect individual parts of a whole so that each retains its own identity and yet blends into the greater pattern of a single whole.

Sony unveils man’s ‘new’ best friend (and more) at CES

sony_ces_showcase_01

Sony has been known to show up at CES with an upgraded version of what they released the following year…yawn…but this year, Sony means business. This year Sony is showcasing a pair of truly wireless headphones (WF-SP700N), a new portable speaker (SRS-XB41), a compact and elegant projector with magnificent sound (LSPX-A1) and a cute little surprise in the form of aibo, the robotic dog. Of course, there’s also a new TV, sound bar, and compact digital camera to add to the list.

With an artificial marble top, aluminum frame and wooden shelf, the LSPX-A1 transforms your living environment while complementing its decor.

There’s a lot to be desired about what Sony has released this year. For example, the WF-SP700N has digital noise cancellation, waterproof with the all-important IPX4 rating and comes with a nifty carry case, not to mention the embedded Google Assistant making life easier. The design choices of the WF-SP700N are interesting but definitely distinguish their place in the line up of wireless headphones out there.

And of course, how could we forget about aibo. One look is enough to know precisely what aibo needs. With a face full of life and expression, always drawing attention, aibo conveys emotion intuitively. That’s right, aibo’s facial expressions are magnificent. “Sparkling with a clever twinkle,” aibo’s mannerisms speak volumes, continually giving you a window into its feelings. Not only this, aibo is full to the brim with tricks and gestures in the hundreds, enough to surprise you and to discover new things about aibo constantly. Using the camera located at the end of its nose, aibo is capable of detecting obstacles, bumps, people, and more, aibo reacts accordingly. Not only this, aibo listens attentively, locating the sources of sound, turning its head in the direction of people’s voices. Also, aibo loves pink, which is why all the aibo toys have pink elements FYI.
