Scorpion Concept Excavator for JCB Features Greater Degree of Freedom

Scorpion Concept Excavator is a design proposal for JCB, it’s a project submitted for “Project 120” design contest held by JCB. The brief was simple, each contestant had to design an innovative JCB Digger for the year of 2073.

In 2073, we need a new breed of earth moving machinery. Inspired by scorpion, Arpan Jyoti Mahanta, an industrial designer, has come up with a remote-controlled concept excavator to fit this future role. It’s powered by 750 bhp diesel, yeah, pretty massive yet still efficient, it sends power to all those all-terrain wheels through an electric drive transmission, and those arms via hydraulic servo motors.

Hydaway Collapsible Water Bottle by Niki Singlaub

We just got portable water bottle design submission, we really love that you guys keep on trying to design the best products to make our life easier. It looks similar to Stash but Hydaway has its own special features.

Chances are, you’ve got a whole lot of water bottles in your cabinet, each with a design that almost fits all your needs. I’m just like you and got tired of settling for “almost”, and I took matters into my own hands and created Hydaway; a completely re-imagined collapsible water bottle.

Expanded, it holds 21 ounces. Collapsed, it’s just an inch high and tucks away until you need it again. Hydaway’s patent pending design is made of flexible, food-grade silicone, so it’s durable, dishwasher safe and delivers taste-free, waste-free hydration. No more lugging around bulky “empties”, no more disposables in landfills, no more hard to clean bottles taking up valuable space in your kitchen, your bag, your life.

Nimble Backpack Features Innovative Modular Attachment System

Nimble is a backpack designed for mountaineering brand Alpina, aiming to solve one main problem:

How do you carry big objects which don’t fit in your usual backpack?

Nimble was born through a process of observation and research in which a problem was detected when carrying large objects in mountain and urban environments.

Inspired by tool boards and the way rock climbers organize their items, Nimble features a modular attachment system through the use of straps that makes it easier to access to your items at the same time it removes the physical limits of traditional backpacks. The unique design allows you to carry larger objects such as ski equipment or snowboards. This attachment system consists of a series of hooks which are inserted into different holes of the backpack, and through which a strap can be adjusted. Once inserted into the backpack, these hooks are locked when rotated clock-wise 90º, allowing at the same time free 360º rotation of the straps so objects can get placed both horizontally and vertically.

Fish Hole Creates Safe Ice Hole In Frozen Lakes or Ponds

In winter, lakes and rivers usually freeze but only on the surface, allowing fish to survive beneath the ice. However, as winter progresses, oxygen levels begin to drop as well as food, yes, fish can learn to adapt to survive, but not all of them can do that. We could create holes to save the fish, but people also might accidentally fall into the ice hole, so, keeping this in mind, Fish Hole is created.

It is a weighted double-layer column which can be placed in lakes or ponds before icing up to create safe, uniform ice holes. Once the column is frozen in place, you can remove the inner tube to allow the oxygen in. at the same time, it can be used for fish feeding or fishing. The bright colors of this unit offer a nice warning about the presence of holes in the ice.

Urban Skyfarm : Future Vertical Farm for Urban Areas

Based on recent studies, in the future, most world’s population will live in urban areas, and the total of world population will increase by about 3 billion people. Urban Skyfarm proposal was inspired by Dr. Dickson Despommier’s concept of vertical farm, it’s a possible solution to deal with our future problems of land shortage, deforestation, and of course, environmental pollution due to over population.

The idea here is to locate a vertical farm in downtown of Seoul, right adjacent to the Cheonggyecheon stream which is an ideal place to host local food production and distribution. This skyfarm takes advantage of hydroponic system as substitution to soil based agricultural extensions, yet it is able to produce the same food but more efficient and healthy thanks to controlled environment (heat, light, moisture). Urban Skyfarm will be a zero energy facility, it uses renewable energy produced by both solar and wind energy for the production process, including transportation and food distribution.

The optional camera module allows HC1 to stream wearer’s point view to other members for live feedback in real time. HC1 caters for left and right eye in a single product, it’s one of the main focuses during the design process. After several prototypes, the result is a horizontally symmetrical main housing that can be detached from the soft-goods frame. It can be flipped horizontally in order to swap the display from one eye to the other.

iStick USB Flash Drive with An Integrated Apple Lightning Connecting

Finally, someone made something that’s been on my mind for ages. iStick USB flash drive is integrated with Apple lightning connector to make it easily and quickly move data between computers, iPhones, iPads, or iPod touches. Seriously, I don’t really like the idea that I have to connect to iTunes every time I want to access my music files. Using this little device, you don’t need internet, wireless, networks or the Cloud, all your data are safe from other 3rd party server operators.

USB flash drives are a great invention, they are great way for transferring files between computers and don’t even require setup, unfortunately, they don’t work with Apple iDevices. Well, iStick opens this door for us and I believe that all Apple fanboy would love it as well. Simply slide the switch on the iStick to switch the connector from standard USB to an Apple lightning connector. Transfer your music from computer to iPhone or playback directly from iStick, forget about lengthy synchronization process. You can free up the space on your phone by backing up all photos, videos, or files.

USF : Ultra Small Footprint Vehicle by Alex Langensiepen

USF (Ultra Small Footprint) Vehicle was a sponsored project for GenZe by Mahindra, the objective was to design a vehicle for the next generation (Generation Z) for one of largest cities of the future.

USF has been designed around the city of Tokyo for the year 2025, with the aim at bringing excitement back into the commuter day to day travels. The city of Tokyo, while it has an extremely efficient transportation system that arrives promptly, all of the commuter trains are grossly over capacity, some as close as 200%, which leads to a dismal commute to work.

3D Printed Fractal LED Generator by Margot Krasojević

The light’s ceramic 3d printed shell is modeled using an ever decreasing repeated pattern, these fractal dimensions reserve self-similarity across scale, where at any magnification there is a smaller piece of the object only being restricted through it’s entire form. When air passes over it the light freely rotates picking up speed as a result of it’s weight,

Balance and pattern repetition. The movement rotates a motor which creates a current using a joule thief circuit to light up a cluster of LED’S. The light only uses wind power to generate this electricity, a capacitor allows the light to store up energy when there is no wind power to turn it. There are no batteries in the circuit only the electronics circuit shown below. The ceramic shell was designed using simulation software to test the aerodynamics and fluid dynamics of the form, materials and densities.
