The main inspiration of the exterior trash can concept was to generate awareness of clean environment among people by featuring excellent functionalities and great aesthetics. The organic form of the product has been derived from nature and human architecture, aiming to improve the existing trash can principles. This innovative trash can has been crafted from Kerrock, a high gloss material that not only gives the can a stylish look, but also acts resistant to external influences like various weather affects. This concept features a metallic bond between the soil and the cans that provides extra stability along with link to the local drainage system to ensure drain out any unwanted liquid from garbage and rain.
Nowadays the emphasis is being given to private vehicles for maneuvering in and around the city. Also with this increase in vehicles, the parking spaces are getting cramped up by the day. It is but obvious to have an amicable solution for the same. In comes Solid – the vehicle. Designed by Nikita Gutsalenko, currently pursuing fifth year in Product Design and Transport Design at the Ural State Academy of Architecture and Arts, Russia
The Solid vehicle does have the standard protection means, like safety-belts and airbags. It also has two special elements installed in front and in the back of the car. These elements provide additional maneuverability by turning around. They also are very strong in if a crash occurs as they take the damage on itself and thus saving the booth.
The deformation of the Booth is prevented by a frame ring. In the interior, a display is installed thus creating a panoramic view. The Airbags installed in wheel of the car will operate at the side. With an approach sensor it turns on the auto brake system. The car creates the sensation of reliability as its Image is associated with specialized machines, all we can say is welcome to the future.
At the very moment the Abyss watch arrived, the white box package gave me a positive feel about it which got enhanced by revealing the even more appealing black leather covered gift box. When I completely unpacked the watch, I saw this stylish, innovative and cool all-black appearance that was hard to see appropriately from the images on the website. Read the review after the jump.
The solid dark face of the Abyss watch may sometimes seem irritating (we certainly are not used to wear a blank watch, right?) but the experience of wearing a watch that is likely to be the most unique among others would really worth it. However, a simple touch on the dark screen can immediately turn it into a nighttime sky with 60 sparkling LEDs. I couldn’t take a photo when the animation stop and the watch display the time, because my camera keeps capturing the moving LED unlike TokyoFlash watch, which I was able to capture it easily. I think it has something to do with frame/light speed, I don’t know much about the technical terms for this. Also, the screen becomes active after every half an hour automatically to show the time.
Counting time is easier than it seems. The swirling LEDs indicating hours are having white color and bigger than the blue LEDs that represent minutes. Adjusting time doesn’t require any special button or skill; the adjusting menu can be accessed by few seconds of continuous touch on the surface of the Abyss watch. It took me awhile to understand this, since there’s no button at all. Just read the included manual.
The black belt of Abyss watch is made of faux snake skin textured leather including 7 holes for a range of wrist adjustment. It requires one CR2016 watch battery which is best known as button cell, silver button cell, or coin cell batteries that we can see in usual electronic watches. Moreover, it comes with a 12 month warranty that can offer you some confidence when making purchase decisions.
I think all range of people can stylishly wear the Abyss watch, but the size seemed a bit bigger to me to call it a perfect girlish watch.
