This bike reflector with true 360° visibility instantly makes night riding safer

You know what’s more eco-friendly than a fuel car, and cheaper than an electronic vehicle? Good-old man-power! Countries are slowly and surely realizing how much easier and healthier it is to commute via cycles. You can drive on footpaths, bike-lanes, roads, off-road, you can carry your bike into the subway to cover larger distances, and most importantly, you stay healthy. The only drawback to bicycling is that it’s difficult to spot a rider in low-light settings, and FLECTR’s award winning ad...

A handsome, handsfree wireless hairdryer!

We put so much thought and consideration into our homes interior design, that it’s just not acceptable for it to be aesthetically compromised by the unsightly appearance of an abandoned hairdryer and the abundance of cable that comes with it. The Fondre Hairdryer addresses this issue, whilst also bringing with it an additional layer of functionality. Storing hairdryers isn’t always an easy task, their awkward form doesn’t make them a draw-friendly device, so why not allow their form to harmoniou...

This skateboard uses less than half the material but provides more than double the strength

This porous skateboard may seem outwardly fragile, but it’s designed and engineered to be as strong as any other regular skateboard, if not stronger. Designed to be more sturdy and ecologically conscious than wood, the Lightweight Skateboard is die-casted using a magnesium alloy that’s finished using CNC Machining. The high-strength, low-weight skateboard comes with an adjustable wheel-base too, giving it even more of an edge over your regular wooden skateboard!Designer: Wang He of Hanma Creativ...

Public Furniture That Makes a Statement: Snøhetta and Vestre's Peace Bench, a/k/a "The Best Weapon"

Yes, I reflexively almost put this into the Design Roast, before reading up on the intent of the design. This is the Peace Bench, designed by Norwegian architecture firm Snøhetta and manufactured by Vestre, a company that bills themselves as the first carbon-neutral outdoor furniture manufacturer.To be honest, from a practical standpoint the design makes no sense to me. The anodized aluminum bench is over 21 feet (6.5 meters) long, yet appears to seat only two. Furthermore, physics presumably in...

Three Ways to Create the Photocopy Glitch Distorted Type Effect

The warped and distorted text effect is a classic technique artists would use when creating collages, posters and flyers with photocopiers in the analog days. The effect is still used today to create abstract art, but we can now also use digital creative software to reproduce the distorted appearance with text, logos and other graphics. In today’s guide I show three ways to create photocopy style glitch distortions. Firstly the manual way using a scanner, then techniques to mimic the effect in P...

A Great Example of Better Data Visualization: This Voting Map GIF

Done properly, the art of data visualization can be an incredibly powerful tool for educating people. It allows us to understand things that would otherwise be ungraspable due to their sheer complexity.Done improperly, data visualization can be incredibly misleading. It's important that we have talented and hopefully unbiased (I know, what are the odds) designers presenting the information. As one example of how bad data visualization can mislead, take a look at this map below. What you're seein...

An Ingenious, Eco-Friendly Solar-Powered Lighter

An indispensable piece of EDC kit, whether you're on a camping trip or prepping for the apocalypse, is a lighter. French company Solar Brother has designed the Suncase, an inexpensive and lightweight alternative that requires no fuel. Instead, two mirrored wings flip out, focusing the sun's rays towards a protrusion in the center of the device, in which you stick a twig, a rolled up piece of paper or a cigarette (which it appears to be sized for; this was invented in France, after all). Once the...
