Bottle Hanger : Redesigned Bottle Cap to Become a Hanger

Even a bottle cap can get redesigned to become more functional for user. Navid Vahidian & Soroush Vahidian have come up with a new bottle cap with a twist, it features an attachment to allow you to hang your bottle onto your backpack or your belt loop. We usually buy a bottle of water when we are out at the park, beach, or outdoor events, we might want to carry the empty bottle for later use or wait till we can find a trash can. This little hanger allows you to hook this bottle onto your bag, giving you free hands, sounds pretty useful right? It’s a simple design but it provides you with smart solution.

Honda NSX Design Study Redesign by Andreas Fougner Ezelius

Due to his dissatisfaction of the new Honda NSX design, Andreas Fougner Ezelius tried to come up with the redesign version. You can read his explanation below.

This project was a pretty quick one. I have thought about doing a remake of the classic NSX for quite some time. I wasn’t happy with the Acura/Honda new NSX because I think it lost most of the proportions and styling of the original car. So I created this. As with all my projects I aim for the less is more approach. I try to strip down my design to the bare minimum and on this project I focus only on the exterior. I tried to retain the very low profile and almost fighter jet like cockpit from the original car. I wanted a certain 90s vibe to it but at the same time make it feel modern. I think most cars nowadays get lost in tons of details and I would like to get back to beautiful, simple, purposeful shapes.

The colorful presentation comes from months of darkness in Sweden. I simply need a contrast to winter :)

Krossblade SkyProwler VTOL Transformer Drone Can Be Easily Reconfigured to Suit Your Need

Coming from the same company that designed a conceptual VTOL airplane called SkyCruiser, it’s exciting to see they have come up with smaller version of that concept, SkyProwler. It’s a high performance VTOL Transformer Drone that takes off just like a chopper and when it picks up speed with its high powered thrusters, it transforms into cruise flight with its high speed wings. It is equipped with multirotor take-off mechanism that folds away in-flight to give SkyProwler optimum aerodynamics and better range compared to pure copters or airplanes.

For your missions, there are times when you need maximum hover time with tight turns, it doesn’t matter, because you can simply re-configure SkyProwler without tools. You can take the wings off, change its tail, or create wingless SkyProwler with Hornet configuration, this is a cool thing you can do that you probably can’t find with other drones.

Electric Shaver Concept Is Inspired by Lamborghini Aventador

This Electric Shaver Concept is a continuation of Lamborghini accessories (after Avenger Watch). The idea here is to follow the same design language as the watch, sharp lines, aggressive appearance as resemblance to Aventador (overall intention is a series of accessories as a tribute to this car). The product design is influenced by the body of Lamborghini Aventador with characteristic air intakes and top as the engine compartment.

Again there’s the recognizable Lambo orange signature in combination with black carbon. The bottom of the shaver ends with specially design battery which can be connected to a charger. The main purpose of this product is actually more as a brand identity booster than a practical product.

Smartcall : A Smart Watch for Hearing Impaired People

Smartcall is a smart watch designed especially for hearing impaired people. This watch has the ability to alert or make calls to both hearing and speaking impaired people. They can’t hear your calls or notice signals if you are behind of them. The device works with a paired Bluetooth and GPS enabled mobile phone or two paired smart call watches. The device is useful between two impaired users or one impaired and other non-impaired user. Press and hold the call button to make an alert or to respond to one, the receiver would get a vibration feedback when receiving an alert. The Bluetooth technology transfers the call to vibration and GPS locates the direction of an alert, also the user can give an alert to a group of people in the Bluetooth range.

If both users are hearing and speaking impaired then they can use smart call watch to transfer alert or call if the device is already paired. At the same time, if the first user is impaired and other is non-impaired, this Bluetooth and GPS enabled mobile phone can be used to make a call or send noise alert if you installed a smart-call application in your phone.
