This RFID-blocking key-fob case works like a faraday cage to protect your car from theft

Just like your contact-less payment cards stand a chance of being tapped into by a miscreant with a POS device, your car’s key-fob stands a risk of being hacked into, its signal being boosted or duplicated, and used to unlock your car. Ever since the introduction of remote-controlled key-fobs, car theft hasn’t decreased, but rather has seen a 56% spike according to the office of national statistics.The problem with key-fobs is that security for this is easy to compromise. People have been know...

The popular travel pants that are forcing the fashion industry to make comfort a priority

For the longest time, the Fashion Design Industry eluded the entire approach of designing through problem-solving. Infamously enough, the fashion business is known for setting trends, creating aesthetics, and developing styles, but not solving problems… why else would women’s pants still not have pockets? (P.S. The real answer is so that women continue to buy purses. Create pockets and purse sales will immediately tank.)The minute you ask the public what they want in the clothes they wear, the...

The EVA Cushion turns any surface into an ergonomic, comfortable seat

There’s a pretty big chance you’re reading this while sitting down. On a seat at work, at a restaurant, in the subway or the bus, at home, why heck, perhaps you’re on the crapper. Last example aside, we’ve descended into a majorly sedentary lifestyle that involves a lot of sitting, and anyone who does a lot of sitting (basically everyone) knows that after a while your spine, neck, and tailbone start telling you to have mercy on them. You get up, take a walk around, and after a 3-4 minute break...

The world’s tiniest bottle opener and multitool is deceptively small

The TiBO is small enough to be underestimated. Roughly the size of your thumbnail, it’s easy to dismiss the TiBO as something that’s too small to be useful… but it’s also a wildly inaccurate thing to do, because at just 21.5mm in length, the TiBO is the smallest multitool, packing a bottle opener, a flathead screwdriver, and a prybar into its deceptively tiny footprint.Conceived in 2016, the TiBO went through its share of design iterations before it reached what it looks like today. Optimized ...

Wingback’s hip-flask explores a radically different pocketable form

Hear the word hip-flask and you immediately picture a curved, rectangular metal container with a lid. The hip-flask’s design is surely archetypal, and most would say that it isn’t a design to be reinvented or toyed with, but that’s not how the design industry works. Deciding that it’s time to give the trusty old hipflask a functional and aesthetic facelift, Alasdair MacLaine created the 100ml Hip by Wingback, a novel-looking flask that opts for a more secure, machined-to-perfection cylindrical...

The must have lighting tool for filmmakers and photographers

If you’re a budding filmmaker or photographer, you will know the challenges that come with capturing a dark and poorly-lit scene. And whilst an external flash or lighting set-up will solve this, they can be impractical and often inaccessible, as well as a carrying a hefty price-tag! This is where the Crack Light really shines, leading it to become a must-have tool to keep on your person!Blind Spot Gear are no strangers when it comes to lighting solutions, with this being their sixth Kickstarte...

Meet the Nowa Superbe, a smartwatch that never needs charging

You’d never guess that the Superbe was a hybrid smartwatch. With its incredibly fashion-forward aesthetic, the Superbe is a gorgeous looking wristwatch with a unique dial and a simple yet classy design that’s fitting of its Parisian roots… but the Superbe is more than just a gorgeous looking wristwatch. It’s a hybrid smartwatch too, with a world-clock, activity tracker, sleep tracker, Bluetooth controls, and probably its biggest feature, its ability to work without needing to be charged. This ...

A lubricating roller for your bike-chain that lets you ‘grease with ease’

Grease, as many of my white shirts will stand testament to, is an absolute nightmare when it gets on your person. Even a drop or so on your fingers can require multiple scrubs to get rid off, because that’s precisely the nature of the liquid. It’s supposed to lubricate, but it’s also supposed to stick around, eliminating friction between moving parts for a long time, before they need a second coat of lubricant.Ideally, the grease you apply on mechanical moving parts isn’t supposed to get on yo...

This limited-edition kitchen essential comes with a PANTONE Living Coral handle!

Let not the name scare you! Symbolic of how sharp their kitchen knives are, we’re here to celebrate the 4th year anniversary of Cut Throat Knives. Centered around the principle that the knife is perhaps mankind’s oldest culinary instrument, and that as an instrument that’s been with us for over a million years, knives deserve utmost reverence.

This backpack with built-in Bluetooth speakers can start parties anywhere

It’s usually a privilege (and an incredibly high honor) to be given aux-cable rights in a car. The person with the aux-cable is usually the person who’s musical tastes everybody respects the most. This person takes ownership of playing music that everybody loves, turning a long road-trip into a long-and-fun road-trip.The Speaker Backpack extends this privilege, giving this person (with great taste in music) the ability to start parties anywhere.

This portable armrest makes working on computers much more comfortable

The Mouzen is a product that previously never existed in a category that previously never existed. However, it’s one of those products that should pretty much instantly catch on, given how incredibly valuable it is in terms of upping comfort, and productivity.The Mouzen, and I find it weird even saying this, is a portable armrest. Why would you need one? Because it’s designed specifically to support your arm as you work on a computer. Think of it as one of those padded mousepads, but less of a...

The SSD Chair proves that more designers should take to crowdfunding

If IKEA pioneered the flat-pack furniture industry, the SSD Chair brought it to crowdfunding. You see, a lot of designs get abandoned as concepts because there’s no easy way to manufacture and sell them without having distribution channels, marketing teams, and retail partners. IKEA is what it is today only because it’s a phenomenal force of retail and has warehouses and brick-and-mortar stores in a number of countries… most independent designers do not. Creating a chair is easy. Selling it is...

Nordgreen’s watches are all about Scandinavian simplicity, symmetry, and social responsibility

I remember first getting a glimpse of Nordgreen’s watches when I saw Sam Gwilt (our buddy, Sam Does Design) wearing them. Designed in Copenhagen, Denmark, Nordgreen’s watches spoke of true Nordic minimalism, with design details that omitted everything complex, retaining just the elements that were necessary. A clean dial, three hands, and a date window. Together, these three elements were all that were needed to build a beautiful watch that’s outwardly simple, sophisticated, and minimal to the...

The SPIN is figuratively the coolest fireplace ever made…

I’d be compromising my journalistic integrity by using the term ‘lit’, but that’s precisely what the SPIN is. A portable fireplace that ditches the age-old flame for a fiery vortex, the SPIN is absolutely alluring to look at. The portable fireplace, or fire vortex if you’re the technical kind, can be used indoors or outdoors. It comes with a base that holds the fire-starter, and an optional glass hood that helps expand the flame to make the vortex bigger and more visible.The SPIN works by usin...

The Getaway Duffle is made to travel in literally any weather

Outwardly, the Getaway Duffle by Articulate looks like any other duffle bag, but take a closer look and you’ll notice that its classic styling hides a whole slew of features that make the Getaway a modern classic. For starters, its wax-coated canvas cladding and YKK zippers ensure that the Getaway adheres to the highest levels of durability, and can withstand rough use as well as rough weather. The waxed canvas is naturally hydrophobic, is scratch + stain resistant, doesn’t fade, and keeps dus...

YD Talks: With ‘Sam Does Design’ about designing The Weight lamp for Gantri

Sam Gwilt started his fledgling YouTube channel to capture his journey as a designer. Over time, that YouTube channel helped build a community that, along with Sam, ‘does design’.

The Hashy bottle deserves to be in a contemporary art museum

If I asked you to imagine a water bottle, you’d probably think of a flimsy, disposable plastic PET bottle with a branding-label around its waist. Even if you go a step further to look at reusable plastic bottles or even metal thermoses, there’s an underlying design that unites all of them into an invisible category. This invisible category (which helps you differentiate between the bottle designs for water, or beer, or ketchup) is a nice guideline to follow, but more often than not, it results...

Imagine if you just needed one bag all your life… the Onli Pack was designed to be it

You probably have a laptop bag, a travel bag, a sports duffle, probably a camera bag too, a check-in suitcase for flights, and a handy carry-on case. Designer David Logan was audacious enough to ask the question, what if you didn’t need that many bags? Quite aptly titled Onli, Logan’s bag design aims at being the only bag you need to own. Whether it’s to carry a laptop strapped to your back, or to carry your luggage on a plane, the Onli Travel Venture Pack shapeshifts between a conventional ba...

The TIMIO is a child-friendly tech-toy that introduces learning without the tech addiction

I heard something extremely interesting the other day. Children in homes with smart speakers had gotten so used to talking to the AI that they would often begin projecting human-like behavior on these voice assistants. Saying please, saying thank you, etc. While at first, I thought about how lovely that sounded, my second reaction was quite the opposite. These are artificial lines of code! They aren’t humans! They shouldn’t be humanized, and more so, children shouldn’t have to live in a world ...

Inspirational toys, made from inventive materials

You could give a child an iPad. It would hopelessly addict them to screens, and have them consuming digital content for hours, attached to the array of pixels you call an ‘educational app’. You could give them an action figure that would spark their fantasy, surely, but wouldn’t encourage creativity the way a build-it-yourself toy would. Toys that require interaction and imagination in larger quantities help a child question certain realities, and imagine newer possibilities. Lego, Meccano, or...
