It’s every home maker’s nightmare of trashing the trash but the new concept design trash can is some thing that should take care of these worries. Named as Ultra Efficient Odorless Compost Bin designed by Industrial designer Joe Brunton ensures that the waste material don’t stink inside the bin but the organic waste recycles itself by the use of carbon filter technology which dries up the decomposing waste while preventing the malodorous ammonia to enter kitchen. These filters are replaceable which need to be changed every six months thus ensuring the functionality of product as well as that of the process. A good practical thought for sure.
Joe explanations :
This projects aim was to encourage people to recycle their own organic waste at home. One reason why this wasn’t happening was because the compost decomposes and creates an unpleasant smell; this is caused by wet compost and high nitrogen / ammonia levels.
The “Smellfree” compost bin uses carbon filters to dry out the waste and lower the nitrogen levels so even when you lift the lid of the bin the compost will not fume out your kitchen whilst also making it much more efficient. The bin will take between 1 and 2 weeks to fill. This is if the organic material going into the bin is chopped to a reasonable size, also making the compost process more productive.
The main body is 300mm high and with the lid its 400mm. This was set so it could be easily kept on a kitchen work surface or be cleaned in a standard dishwasher. The body can come in any colour, and even with custom print to make it more desirable to the consumer.
Wooden Cloth is an expandable table designed to adapt itself in size to different occasions in your life. It’s made out of solid ash with transparent Osmo oil finish, quality furniture is made to last for years so that it can be passed down to the next generations and treated with care. That’s why Natalie Dackelid wanted to make a table where it can be useful in many special events.
When you move to a smaller apartment, you still can use this table. When you need to host a dinner with some extra friends, simple expand the table. It measures 620 (1200) x 750 x 720 mm.
Pedro Nakazato has designed Bones orthopedic cast with sensors to capture the muscle activities around the fracture area and stimulate full recovery time of the patient. The main objective of this project is to provide specific information and achievement of the patients based on their level of exercises during the cast period. Bones will simulate the time of recovery based on all the physical activity data of the patient.
Patients go to Hospital when they suffer from bone fractures to be analyzed and receive proper treatment from the doctor. They will be presented with Bones orthopedic cast. Each time the user turns on Bones, the EMG sensors will record all muscle activity around the fractured area and save the data in the cast device. All this information will then go into the community based website of Bones where Doctors, physiotherapists, and other new users of Bones can follow the patient’s progress. In this way, new users can visualize their achievement based on the data from former patients with the same type of fracture. Sharing this information is a good way to encourage other patients to engage with their recovery process from beginning of the treatment.
In the end, using Bones orthopedic cast can reduce the overall period of recovery time. Because the recovering process from a fractured bone doesn’t depend only on period spent with the cast but the entire activity and muscle strains recovery process. During the cast period the fractured limb loses huge amounts of muscle strain due to the inactivity of the area. One of the causes is that users start to exercise the limb only after removing the cast while they should be engaged in keeping the muscles around the fractured area active from the very first day with the cast.
For this project, the designer has done some research to decide the material for the cast. It has to be lighter, hygienic, and thinner compared to traditional material. He decided to use Polycaprolactone for the cast. The muscle sensors are embedded on the band which goes under the Bones orthopedic cast to keep the muscle tension around the fractured area.
