Classical Soup Serving Dish Gets New Shape as Sphere Tureen

The Sphere Tureen concept has been designed to bring a revolutionary change in the design of tureen, a classical dish that is being used for serving soup, by giving them a modern and eye-catching look. Basically, the design was inspired to give the soup dish the shape of a perfect sphere with lot more efficiency than the traditional one. Therefore, a cap has been integrated with a rail mechanism that allows the cap to be opened by sliding. To ensure convenient carrying, it comprises two handles on both sides which along with the three-way raised base give it an impression like the fairy humpty-dumpty.

Perpetual Calendar Watch: Innovative Analog Watch for Everyday Use

Perpetual calendar watch offers unique design as the result of 40 years watchmaking experience of Dr. Ludwig Oeschslin. It’s a modern watch for everyday use that displays date of each month, yes, including February. Those dots represent the year, month, and date, the size is perfect without making user distracted from reading the time.

The Date
There are 30+1 holes around the perimeter of the dial, the 10 minute markers work as reference points. When the marker indicates 30-minutes, it also shows the 15th day of the month (30/2-15). These 5 day markers allow you to read the date at a glance.

The Month
There are 4 perforations in the month disk to indicate the month. The outermost of perforation points to 1 o’clock, it means January. But when the perforation points to 2 o’clock, it means February, and so on.

What about when it’s a leap year? Well, those small 4 perforations in the month disk can also tell you about it. See the outermost dot is orange? It means, it’s a leap year (366 days), so when it’s dark, it’s a common year of 365 days. That leap year disk actually rotates clockwise beneath the month disk. Perpetual calendar watch will be individually manufactured in Switzerland for only 20 watches this year, each timepiece will be hand-assembled and hand-regulated by Sandra Flück at the ochs und junior workshop in Lucerne.

Ultrasonic Design: Making Smartphones Thinner

In the modern world, smaller is better, and that is why hi-tech devices such as mobile phones and tablets are becoming smaller by the day but more efficient. The biggest challenge that most designers are experiencing is integrating functionality into a slimmer packaging. Such work is not possible without the ultrasonic welding technology. When you design a product, you have to constantly looking for ways to make your design more efficient, correct? This includes creative thinking about weld deposition efficiency, by reducing the number of welds, you can create a more optimized design.

Today, most ultrasonic welding companies provide a broad range of devices that enable the manufacturers and designers to work in confined spaces and achieve high accuracy and efficiency levels in their work. In the manufacture of smartphones, welding is inevitable; Manufacturers are in need of different ultrasonic machines which meet different needs. With Electronic Motion Series, you can achieve the highest quality welding for small parts. The Dynamic Series is used for thermoplastic parts for both medium to large size and small to medium size parts, such as buttons. The Standard Series has been developed to cater for the different frequency needs – small, medium, and large, in welding thermoplastic parts. For two different series, the operator can choose to use the Easy Series.

Aluminum Heatsink Laptop Stand, this project is about a laptop stand that can reduce your laptop’s heat while improving ergonomics quietly. We spend long hours at our desks, sitting in front of our computer. Depending on work environment, you may be using a desktop or laptop.

There are plenty of good looking pens out there. I know, I have bought many. So why design something new for what seems like a saturated market?

Simple – there are none that capture the true essence of the stylish 21st century technophile at an affordable price while maintaining the practicality and convenience of ballpoint ink on paper. The ballpoint pen for the 21st Century needs to be minimal without minimizing the user experience. It needs to provide you with all you want in a quality writing instrument. It needs to be unique inside and out. It needs to captivate you. It needs to represent who you are – for as long as you will. It’s time for if. pen.
