Vite is a collapsible snow stretcher aimed to rescue the injured people in the snow within the quickest possible way. The backpack shell acts as a sled and allowing an injured to be carried easily. The design intends to be opened easily and quickly in order to lessen the setting up time of the sled. The products that are available on the market are deliberated to be used by two people. But these products became much heavier which resulting a lesser speed. Vite, on the other hand, is however not a professional level rescuer, rather this product would be ideal for people living on mountains and groups of expedition for emergency situations.
To all paper book lovers, Bookmark Dictionary is going to be very handy. Some people think that in the end, e-book is going to kill the printed book. Apparently that opinion didn’t stop Raghunath Dhayalan, an industrial designer, to design this innovative gadget. Most readers don’t like the idea of stop reading when they come across a new word they don’t understand. Stopping in the middle might spoil their focus on the story for awhile. Usually they skip new words and continue to read or make a note on bookmark to search the meaning for those new words later on.
Bookmark Dictionary brings our traditional dictionary in the form of sleek electronic gadget. It has a sensor for capturing the image and highlights words on the book. The touch screen enables the reader to find the meaning of a word in just seconds. This gadget features inbuilt speaker to pronounce the word and a scientific calculator. The sleek body design makes this dictionary can be used as a bookmark.

Tuvie has received this project from our ‘Submit A Design‘ feature, where we welcome our readers to submit their design/concept for publication.
Autonomous Living Unit has been demonstrated last April for the first time in the Future Cities exhibition occurred in New York City which is a concept chair with a unique look that integrates all the functions that a home may have into a single chair. This concept is outlined by imagining the furniture that could be fitted in derelict buildings to provide the fundamental needs of human being. This project symbolizes the current housing crisis due to the tendency of people to live on their own and the tradition of transforming architecture into consumer products. In fact, this concept product shows the visually alluring yet most minimal objects that still can provide the basic needs of human being.
Autonomous Living Units is a somewhat satirical project that stands at the intersection of the current housing crisis, the tendency of people in developed countries to live on their own and the trend of turning architecture into a consumer product. The project poses a scenario in which living units (homes) have evolved into the most minimal yet visually alluring objects that can still provide for the basic needs of the 21st century human being.
Because of the morphing of architecture into furniture, the Living Units could be inserted in derelict areas and ruined housing projects. This project was exhibited among others at the d3 Gallery in New York for the “Future Cities: Past, Present” exhibition in April 2009.
