Urinals in public restrooms are often considered awful primarily because of the unhygienic restrooms. To break this and to make urinals in public toilets more welcoming and pleasant, an innovative idea has been put forth. By setting up the restroom in pod format with 4 urinals on every pod, the users can enjoy more space and privacy. This system as well paves way for both peeing and watering the plants. Approved by a professor of toxicology, the project employs 3 processes. The urine thus collected is filtered, which is then used for the plants. Peeing, besides being a waste process becomes a nurturing one, which appears to be a great advantage here. This idea will certainly make the very notion of urination a better experience.

When we touch a tap to open water flow, we certainly leave some bacteria and dirt on it, which we take back after having washed our hands when we attempt to close it. The Water Symphony concept comprises an electronic device for the mixer tap, with which you can adjust all the needed functions such as water temperature or pressure precisely and quickly without touching it. There is an OLED display on the top of the tap, showing water temperature, its pressure and the spent amount in liters for one time. Moreover, the tap includes a microphone and sensors that can sense an object’s proximity.
The water pressure and temperature control unit is fitted under the sink which is consists of two parts. One is the microprocessor that processes the incoming signals of the peripheral sensors and the microphone, in order to control the water pressure and temperature adjustment. Another component is the water pressure and temperature adjustment device. All the processes are carried out through electric network feed and the water is heated through the heating elements. Adjusting the water pressure is executed through opening and closing a valve and water heating requires a particular amount of time excluding the odd energy consumption and heat loss for a constant heating.
Having come to the sink, the user will pronounce the needed water temperature and when the hands are taken to the tap, the motion sensor sends the required signal to start water flow with the preset temperature. If the user wants to adjust the water pressure, approaching just a finger over different sensors will provide different water pressure. The overall procedure takes less than 2 seconds and settings are saved until next session begins.
The Water Symphony can work in both constant water supply and motion sensors modes and is a perfect solution for those who cares for health and hygiene, and keeps up with time.
The PowerMat is a concept charging platform where users can charge their various electronic devices simply by putting them on the mat. This sleek and slim charging mat can be perfectly used at home or office and can charge up to 3 devices and has one USB power port. To make a device powermat-enabled, all you have to attach the certain back cover designed for each particular device like iPhone 3G, BlackBerry, Apple dock, and many more. For those devices that don’t have a powermat back cover, there is a powercube with several extension cord types to fit various kinds of devices. Moreover, the portable mat, the most amazing member of the PowerMat family, can be folded for ultra compact storage, allowing it easier and more convenience to carry this when you are mobile. The portable mat also works with all types of PowerMat receivers including the powercube.
