I never imagined a pill-shaped wardrobe” which just goes to show how conditioned we are to live within the walls (or doors) or what we know. But Orior decided to shatter the notions of regular expectations by ad...

Is resurrecting Google’s BookBot the need of the hour?

Everyone in Silicon Valley is trying to design something straight out of the future. We treat science and technology as the end all be all of our issues and rightfully so, but here is an unpopular opinion – do we REALLY need technology in every aspect of our lives to make it better? A decade ago, robots doing all our tasks were just a thing of movies and today we don’t go a day without interacting with a robot – think about it, even if you call a place there is a 99% chance an automated voice ...

This Apple Pencil-based dropper is a DJ that drops data instead of beats!

Remember the simpler childhood days of using the dropper to pick a color and spill it *carefully* on another sheet?

Who knew an aroma-diffusing vortex could be so calming?

Part aroma diffuser, part snow-globe-inspired desktop delight, the Twystr brings a visual element to aromatic diffusion. Rather than just diffusing the mist into the air, it does so by creating a miniature vortex trapped within a glass bell-jar-style lid with an orifice at the top that allows the mist to escape into the air. This visual flair isn’t just an aesthetic feature, it helps the Twystr diffuse aroma efficiently and with speed.Twystr is a better, better-looking aroma diffuser that allo...

I am an all-time architecture content consumer and nothing fascinates me more than seeing concept homes designed for the future!

A bamboo iron to smoothen out the wrinkles in sustainable living
