Retro 1940s-Inspired race-car concept is powered by an electric drivetrain!

The Helvezzia Tipo-6 exists in a parallel universe where electric vehicles were commonplace back in the 1940s. I wouldn’t be surprised though, if the world, plagued by the 2nd World War and the need to have an efficient way to transport humans and resources, developed electric cars on a mass-production scale. [Fun Fact: EVs did, in fact, exist in the 1900s but were soon phased out after the discovery of large petroleum reserves in the USA] Let’s step out of that scenario for a second to admire ...

How one company designed the ultimate camera bag for every photographer

Designing a camera bag can often be an extremely challenging task given the demanding and everchanging needs of photographers. Some travel with large lenses, others require dedicated storage for a drone, tripod, external flash, or extra clothes on a lengthy shoot. The issue with (and the challenge behind) designing the perfect camera bag revolves around this uncertainty, the fact that cameras and accessories come in different sizes and shapes, and that every photographer has their own setup. ...

The Proclamation Duo was designed to cook the world of cuisines with just a few pieces

The Proclamation Duo from Proclamation Goods is called a kitchen anti-set for a reason. Together, the two-pan (with lid included) combo effectively performs the job of a skillet, a wok, a stockpot, and even a dutch-oven, challenging the idea that home cooks need a cabinet full of cookware. Designed to be versatile enough to use independently, or hinged together to form a heat-trapping oven, you can actually cook everything from phenomenal steaks to pizzas to braises. The iF Design Award-winnin...

The URÆD wristwatch pays tribute to the creator of the world’s first closed lifeboat

If you haven’t heard of the story of Mr. Ole Brude, sit down and grab a cup of hot chocolate, because it’s pretty incredible. Back in August 1904, a Norwegian by the name of Ole Brude designed a lifeboat no larger than the size of a minivan. The unique feature about this lifeboat, however, was that unlike most boats in 1904, this one was enclosed, and shaped like an egg. Brude, perhaps fueled by eccentricity and hope, decided to take this van-sized boat on its maiden journey from Norway to Ame...

Pablo Escobar’s new smartphone aims at taking on the Samsung Galaxy Fold

No, this is nothing like those cheap Airpods knockoffs you find on Aliexpress. The Escobar Fold 2 is a ‘legit’ folding phone with an eerie similarity to the Samsung Galaxy Fold… and with a $399 price tag. Launched by Roberto Escobar’s ‘tech company’ which debuted with a Flexpai-mimicking smartphone last year, the Escobar Fold 2 is a direct dig at Samsung, promising to ‘ruin the big brand’ as Roberto believes these brands steal from the common folk. Pot and kettle, am I right? Although seriousl...

Cool Kids Guide of Things to Do in Seattle with Kids (adult’s love these too!)

Seattle is cool. Uniquely cool. And there is a great balance of things to do in Seattle with kids AND for us adults too! Starbucks. Amazon. Microsoft. Costco. Boeing. Pearl Jam. Nirvana.

Border Patrol Threw Away Migrants’ Belongings – A Janitor Saved And Photographed Them

A Nuclear Reactor For The Future

As current nuclear plants grow outdated, researchers, founders, and developers eye the energy source’s inevitable evolution. Most notably, the next generation of nuclear reactors will be smaller—almost 1/100th the size of current models.
