KIDETIC is a fun project to teach children about relationship between energy, interaction and fun. This project addresses this connection by installing power generator mechanism onto playground’s recreational equipments. Electricity is a basic necessity that is in high demand globally, however there are areas where proper electric grids are non existent or power supply is not constant. As the result, the need to develop autonomous power generation system has become increasingly important. By providing the solution of this issue, it will also teach children to be more responsible of their energy consumption while putting it to good use. In the world of video games, children have become socially isolated. Through KIDETIC project, these industrial designers try to encourage children to become more physically and socially active with its reward-based system.
Orb Furniture will help you imagining of having your commercial show units, or vacation park homes or home office in a mobile structure which is extremely amazing and beautiful to look at. The Orb™ is a new generation mobile structure which is incredibly durable, lightweight and transportable. You would love to have your personal round shaped park home to spend vacations where you can have cute furniture as well as unnatural colors from both inside and outside. This concept is designed in order to highlight the modern lifestyle. If you are going to have a commercial unit then you will surely have nonstop customers waiting in a queue to have a look from inside the Orb mobile structure.
Philip Simpson, the designer, together with architect David Miller, (who designed the award-winning Media Centre at Lords’ Cricket Ground while at Future Systems) and a leading structural engineering practice, the design/idea is fast becoming a reality. One of the UK’s top interior design consultancies, Real Studios, has created a range of inspiring interiors to highlight the lifestyle potential of these unique units.
The Orb has been designed to sleep 7 people comfortably, whether it’s young couples who like to spend holidays or weekends with an assortment of friends, or couples with kids who like to holiday with or without extended family. The Orb’s monocoque construction is more durable and long lasting than any other traditionally built structure on the market. The Orb will come with a minimum 5-year structural warranty.
The materials and technology used in the Orb’s construction are exactly the same as in marine construction. Boats are designed to be incredibly strong, lightweight and water resistant – so is the Orb! Being light weight it will be easy to move on site. This makes it ideal for coastal locations, where it will withstand extreme weather conditions much better than the traditional park home.
The Orb’s continuous shell makes it an ideal branding proposition. A full graphic wrap that may be updated or changed as required can be applied to create a distinct brand differentiator.
Ryan Skelley conceived the concept of The Sunbeam Tiger during his Transportation Design course on Coventry University. It is an electric drivetrain with a pack of lithium-titanate battery which takes fewer times to charge than a lithium-ion battery. A fully charged battery can last around 4 hours along with the discretionary 3-phase charger which have made the maximum range of this car around 800 miles. Skelley has shown theoretically that the car can go 0-60 mph within 2.3 seconds and the top speed would be just around 160 mph. Moreover, the proposed materials for constructing the Sunbeam Tiger are extremely recyclable and eco-friendly.
The Tiger concept has been designed for the year 2025 (to coincide with the 100 year anniversary of the land speed record), and with the current pace of innovation in the field of batteries and motors performance such as this is not that far away.
