Umbrella is one of the easiest ways to keep you dry in the rain, however, once you close it, it will end up soaking you itself because it’s wet. Remember when you wet your pants because of an umbrella? Yeah it happens often, doesn’t it? Carrying wet umbrella when you use crowded public transport can be uncomfortable for other people since conventional umbrellas are designed in a way where the wet side goes outward. Inverted umbrella adds a nice twist to our classic umbrella by turning inside-out when you’re not using it. In this way, the dry inner side of the umbrella comes on the outside, keeping the wet side away to keep you dry when you make it in from the rain.

Trilogy is an excellent approach to interpret and reduce the entire system to its core components, which was implemented to develop an exclusive water purifier for the China market. This project was commissioned by EcoWater LLC. The water purifier features the water filtration column, a hot water tank plus a re-engineered pump system for dispensing water. Experts adopted 3 key cylindrical shapes with this trilogy idea, with each cylindrical shape performing individual functions. While the center and the right cylindrical volume were integrated together as the main structure of the design, the water filtration system was integrated as an obliterable left cylindrical cap to ease changing and cleaning. All the 3 cylinders were tilted forward to facilitate the pouring pitcher idea. The CES connected right away to the kitchen tap is said to be compact in its category, giving out high-quality H2O for your Chinese tea.
Shelly is a polaroid camera to share photos instantly taken on i-paper. In the future, we can store and display our information on e-paper. The concept is to make more intimate the picture something we can touch and feel within digital benefits. How does it work? Jean Hong explained : “You take a picture, stock on the i-paper (consumables), send it via the Internet to other owners of i-paper therefore to wallets, picture frames, at home, in the office … everywhere and anywhere.”
