Gecko Bionic Design Window Cleaner by Olcay Tuncay Karabulut

Gecko Bionic Design Window Cleaner, just like its name suggests, this concept window cleaner was inspired by a Gecko’s ability to climb different surfaces easy. The key to the gecko’s sticking success is that tiny hair like structures called setae that can be found on the base of its toes. Those microscopic bristles have the ability to split into hundreds of nano-sized tips called septula, giving gecko adhesive abilities on dry and smooth glass or walls.

Recently, several robots for building façade cleaning have been designed and developed to reduce the cost of these tasks as well as increase the safety of workers. Keeping this mind, Olcay Karabulut has designed a unique window cleaner for household and small office use.

Sicuro Pet Carriers For Eldery People

When I say a dog is a man’s best friend, I’m sure I speak for most of us. I love having my dog around me all the time, a pet provides companionship and a great time you’ll be having with them around. Seniors have the same feeling when it comes to pets. Research shows seniors who own pets are healthier and more alert, because pets keep the owner engaged and give them a companion to live with. Unfortunately, existing pet carriers are bulky and heavy, it’s difficult for elderly people to transport their pets from one place to another. Sicuro Pet Carrier has been designed to address this issue.

The main concern of existing pet carriers is the lifting part, by adding wheels to the carrier and a telescoping handle, the task of transporting the pet becomes faster and easier. Sliding lid makes it easier to open and close when compared to current latch system, not to mention the design of existing pet carriers are more like a cage. There are small holes in the lowest panel that allow the pet to see out and the owner to check the pet. The telescoping handle allows the user to both extend the handle for easy pushing, as well as lock it in a shorter position to easy lifting. This also comes in handy when storing the carrier. Most pet owners consider their pets as family members instead of just pets, that’s why Sicuro has been designed to look like a baby carriage to remove the connotation of a cage. The small size of Sicuro came from interview results. Most seniors interviewed say that they prefer small pets because they are easier to take care of.

Stone Table Was Inspired by Those White Rounded Stones of Versilia River

The form of Stone Table reminds you of the white rounded stones of the Versilia river. The table is made of CRISTALPLANT, and consists of a main unit, the table, and four other small units that are joined to the main body through a small magnet. The other four units can serve as footstools or small seats, depending on the use made of Stone Table.

Indeed this table can have many different uses, it can be used as a coffee table, or as a small children’s table, its curved shape with no sharp edges make it suitable for use by children, or as an outside table, to decorate the garden or any other open air space
