Smart First Aid Kit has been designed to allow and encourage patients (critical to everyday patients) to become e-patients. Using Smart First Aid Kit, user is able to utilize great potential of the e-patient network and perform self triage. When you have ankle sprain, this kit can help you measure the swelling and inflammation of your ankle in real time and compare the results to others on the e-patient network to know how bad your injury is.
This first aid kit has utilized Footfalls & Heartbeats technology to try to improve healthcare system worldwide. The designer intention f or this product is not for mass production, actually it is meant to become an attention grabber, conversation starter and conceptual idea. Once Footfalls and Heartbeats has the attention of the design and consumer world the company would release a commercialized version.
Designer : Richard Clarkson
The idea of using wooden box as the case came for more than one reason. Richard Clarkson says “The first is the psychological connections we have with the materiality of wood. As a substance it carries with it connotations of nature, warmth and individuality. It is these qualities that I feel perfectly suit the values of Footfalls & Heartbeats.”. The wood of Smart First Aid Kit came from New Zealand Native Rimu which has antibacterial characteristic, similar to bamboo, therefore, it is applicable for both the casing and instrument of medical goods.
Eco Bath is a dual water-tank designed primarily to recycle water rolling down from a washbasin. It is composed of two key parts including a left part having recycled water, while the right part comprises of tap water. It looks just like a regular water-tank when looked outwardly, except for 2 levers plus a single LED. The LED turns green when the left part is filled with recycled water so that the user can pull the lever to use the recycled water and flush the toilet. On the other hand, the LED turns red, indicating it is not full yet. Thus the user can pull the lever to make use of tap water for flushing the toilet.
Vladimer Kobakhidze, a 29-year old Georgian car designer has sent us his Audi bike concept, a premium transportation for urban traffic to reduce pollution. Please don’t get confused by the name, it’s not an official concept from Audi, but clearly it was inspired by the famous Audi brand design philosophy.
In this fast growing population, the reloaded urban traffic and the polluted environment needs a sustainable, flexible, safe and comfortable bicycle device. It is a difficult task to find out the real innovation in this, in the bicycle design segment. The goal is pretty straight forward, design a family bicycle for “Audi” based on the general design and philosophy of this German automotive company from rationality, visibility and quality. It has to meet the principle of modern sportiveness for premium consumers.
The “Audi Bike” Design project combines the new family of the bicycles: The “Audi” Sports bike, the Folding bike and the electronic + (HP) humane powered Bike. All of them feature fluent lines, more surface transitions and sporty look with emotional appearance.
The “Audi Bike” Sports bike
The “Audi Bike” Sports bike represents a premium class bicycle segment. The dynamic body frame made by solid and lightweight material (like carbon fiber or aluminum) combines the Seat post construction and the Chain ring mechanism. The innovative bicycle body design language contains the functional and safety features. The seat post construction can be regulated by the user with a simple and convenient convertible, transformable option, also the saddle can be regulated in a high ergonomic level.
The Chain ring mechanism is a simplified by the safe covering system, which makes the Chain ring device convenient and safe in use, the design language of a new Chain ring represents a new technical solution of a modern bicycle Chain ring. In general the “Audi Bike” design language represents the new design ideology, to minimize the old fashioned technical, conservative construction approach and maximize the functional, safety and aesthetics features.
The “Audi Bike” Folding bike
The “Audi Bike” Folding bike represents a urban transportation segment. The general design language follows to the new “Audi Bike” family design direction, with a rational and sportivenes, dynamic body language. The folding bike design face has been reworked to be more urban oriented. To the global rising urban traffic, the foldable option can be used in a efficient and useful way. The bike lightweight body and convenient proportions make it easily to be placed inside the car’s trunk. It can be connected with a global city network using a new smart phone or GPS mobile device system, offering to the consumer a live city map, the free parking zone and urban traffic map.
The “Audi Bike” Electric bike
The “Audi Bike” Electric bike represents a mountain (hilly) urban transportation segment. The Electric bike design language follows to the new “Audi Bike” family design direction, with a much more refined surface design definitions. The dynamic body frame and wheels are made of carbon fiber, which makes it lightweight and solid. The upper part of the body frame combines the eclectic lithium battery cargo, with a battery range for regular urban use. This electric bike is equipped with (HP) humane powered mechanism, which can be used as a generator option for charging the electric battery.
