Rhinoskin backpack is your second chance gear backpack that you should have with you when you happen to be in a war zone. This Kevlar rucksack comes with built-in protective hood, a smart civilian personal protection system. Designed by Hila Raam, this backpack is intended to be used as your personal protection against debris and impact of missile and rocket attacks. It protects your head, neck, back and sides of the body, but specifically vital organs like your brain, heart, liver, and kidneys. The designer hopes that this design can help reduce the number of fatalities associated with terror attacks.
You can still use it as regular bag, you can wear the vest as a stand alone or combine it with the backpack as one unit.
In the even of an emergency, when you hear the air-raid sirens, simply pull the side traps of the bag around your chest, the protective hood will cover your head and you should lie flat on the ground for cover and avoid any shrapnel from exploding bomb or shell.
The concept is very simple. Koishi planter pot monitors the activity within a plant and transforms it into an audio-visual improvisational performance. We can’t talk to plants but interacting is different. It’s nice to put a plant in the limelight for a change. The music played through the pot is produced instantaneously. It’s more than just a pot, it’s an instrument; controlled by your plant – imagine cooking to the sound of your basil plant in your kitchen.
We interact with one another on a daily basis, we interact with animals, and we spend hours playing Angry Birds on our smart phones; interacting with electronics. Can you see where this is going? In 2012 it’s considered normal to spend hours playing, but interacting with a plant is probably considered as being weird. Koishi Planter Pot tackles this issue, and promotes having plants indoors.
Having plants in your house can improve indoor air quality, they stabilize humidity level and also act as beautiful home decor.
Koishi Planter Pot concept changes the perspective of plants from a piece of furniture to being a plant that gives back too. This concept provides amazing calming effect, ideal for meditation. It’s very easy to use, everyone can use it – no knobs or anything. Just place the plant on the enclosure and sit back. Koishi Planter Pot makes music like no other – always unique. Composed and instantaneously… by a plant!

Greencycle-Eco is a bicycle that explores the use of our current technology, instead of high and sophisticated technology in order to reduce the production cost. The result is affordable bicycle for farmers and other lower income demographic group in Third World Countries. At the same time, this strategic implementation can also be used for First World Countries to achieve greater sustainability.
Pre-fabricated Bamboo panel products have been chosen for the Greencycle-Eco design. With the increasing demand for using greener and more highly renewable materials followed by recent technology developed in India and China, research studies and material testing on Bamboo panel products have shown positive results in the quality and mechanical strength.
Taking into consideration production costs, the design pattern of Greencycle-Eco reduces the number of component parts to three different forms with two sets of identical parts being repeatedly cut out using CNC from a bamboo based panel product.
Standard bamboo panel measuring 1200 x 2400mm can provide enough parts for eight bicycle frames which can be cut out in a short amount of time and reduce the production cost considerably.
Using a pre-fabricated bamboo panel product as the main material for Greencycle-Eco offers a number of advantages including:
The product is made from a renewable material, abundantly grown and commonly available in Asian countries.
It has consistent good quality.
The overall bicycle can fit into a small flat-pack package making it economical to transport (reducing carbon footprint) if shipping is required.
The steel brackets used as a joining component, will last and can be reused while the bamboo parts can be easily and cheaply replaced when needed.
Frame length has been increased by 20% to create greater surface area to carry loads without compromising the stability, maneuverability and safety of the user.
Changing the shape of the downward angled seat stays of the traditional bicycle creates an opportunity to provide not only a support for the rear seat but the point of attachment is required to give the users a freedom. In this way, users can develop or customize their bicycle and turn this humble vehicle into a form of transportation which better suits everyone needs without compromising its functionality as a form of transportation or operational safety.
