It is elegant and meticulously engineered, it’ll look magical no matter where you place it. The orb speaker has been designed to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand, the high quality material makes this device feels solid, not too light yet not too heavy. It emits true stereo sound where you can hear every high and low without external distortion thanks to OM/ONE levitating driver.
Nick Rhea is the designer of Aquabot, a lid that turns ordinary water bottles into a pressurized one. As an avid outdoor enthusiast, the idea came to him during a backpacking trip in Alaska where he thought there’s got to be a better and easier way to clean up his gear and his body. That’s when he noticed other people in the group used a wide-mouth water bottle. Aquabot transforms most bottles into a nice pressurized device to provide you with the convenience of a faucet, shower, water fountain, or mister. It helps to make your tasks of cleaning yourself and your gear easier, you can reduce the use of wet wipes (and use less water).
Aquabot fits on most wide-mouth water bottles, simply replace the original lid and pump it a few times to see it in action. All materials used for the lid are food grade, so you can use it for drinking as well. It’s a simple tool that you can carry while having outdoor activities, no additional gear is required when you already have a water bottle with you. You can back this project here.
Apparently keeping track of your food in the fridge is not that easy, as we’ve seen many designers have come up with unique and innovative solutions to remind you about expiration date of your food. Fridge Magnet is one of those innovative designs that features QR code scanning function to keep you up-to-date with everything you have in the fridge.
The QR code scanner on the magnet can be used to register any information about the food from the name, place of origin, production date, expiration date, and proper temperature for best preservation. As time goes by, this device will change its color to give you a strong visual reminder about the food’s level of freshness. You’ll notice the green or red color, green means your food is still fresh and red means your food has deteriorated, you need to throw it away. These fridge magnets also double as children’s toy where they can learn about food as well as notify their parents what kinds of food they would like to have for dinner.
