Vestalife, the award-winning lifestyle electronics company, and world-recognized strategy and industrial design consultancy RKS today announce a new strategic partnership as Vestalife prepares to launch new products at Macworld and CES. “As we were designing Vestalife’s new iPod speaker docks,” said Ravi Sawhney, RKS Founder and CEO, “we realized that RKS and Vestalife are kindred spirits. We both appreciate the power of design to create an emotional connection with consumers. We look forward to the using Psycho-Aesthetics, our philosophy of creating an emotional connection between consumers and brands, to help propel Vestalife to even greater heights.”
When you look beyond Vestalife’s products, competitive iPod speaker docks are driven by function and lacking in character and emotional appeal. The Firefly’s organic, flowing lines and evolved geometric shapes give it a unique attitude and personality. When closed, the Firefly design uses negative space to dissect its overall shape into three distinct sections. The bold breaks and gaps give the design a layered look and hint at the promise of kinetic transformation as the system is opened.
The metal rings on the base, front, and rear of the Firefly add a refined, sophisticated feel. Angled, hidden hinges allow the Firefly speakers to open, not just to the sides, but also moving slightly forward, in a welcoming and embracing posture. In front of the iPod dock, there’s a subtly-curved, touch-sensitive volume control. With the speakers open, a “billboard” area is revealed on the center face of the Firefly. The Firefly will come with interchangeable faceplates to allow for personalization. Factory customized faceplates will also be featured in limited edition models of the Firefly.
For the Jewelbox, the RKS design team was inspired both by the velvety, rich textures used in the Ladybug and by the famed Fabergé eggs. A symbol of the height of luxury, Fabergé eggs are known for their artistry, rich detail, and for the promise of a hidden surprise. In this case, the hidden magic is the opening of the Jewelbox to reveal the speakers and the iPod dock. The touch-sensitive power and volume controls give the Jewelbox a friendly smile whether opened or closed. The speakers are designed to accommodate factory-changeable graphics for special edition models.
Both the Firefly and Jewelbox were created to bring distinctive design and style to your music listening experience. “RKS is thrilled to be working with Vestalife, a company that truly understands the value and power of emotion to connect with consumers and build brands,” said Tom White, RKS Executive Vice President. “We look forward to working with Vestalife in the coming years.”

As the result, many are now into diet programs, exercise programs, and other activities that could elevate their health condition. Some are into sports program like jogging, running, and the likes.

We don’t see any manual or warranty card, but perhaps it’s as a product sample.

Once you notice the blue/red indicator, you can set your mobile device to search and pair them without releasing the button. Just in case you need to enter a pin, simply enter “0000″.
The headset has been specifically designed for sports and comes in a stylish round form. It’s a splash proof device which makes it perfect for outdoor use, you don’t have to worry a sudden rain. The company claims it has stereo sound quality, however, we need to remind you not to expect the same sound quality from Sennheiser. This headset delivers good enough quality to listen to your favorite music considering the offering price, we’ve found many other expensive headsets that don’t deliver the sound quality as good as this brand. This also means that you get decent quality of conversation when you answer or make call, yes, it is completed with built-in microphone.

Tuvie has received this product from our ‘Ask for A Review‘ feature, where we receive test unit/product sample for a review.
SOLAQUA is a useful device, going to be used as a water disinfection unit in the rural areas of Sub-Saharan Africa. As per the design, this device will obtain infra-red and ultra-violet rays from the sun and will utilize them to eliminate pathogens of contaminated water. Unrefined water will initially pass through a filter of sari cloth to improve the effectiveness of solar water disinfection. A funnel of five taps fills five different bottles to acquire 10 liters of water. Then these transparent bottles are scattered on the ground to get maximum exposure to ultra-violet rays. The black rear surface of these bottles soaks up heat and the reflective inner surfaces imitate ultra-violate rays within the water.
