Whether you grew up gaming, chances are your parents use the line “why don’t you do something with your life!” at least once. With the D’Or gaming drone system, now you can tell them you are!
It explores the concept of gamification to rid the air of harmful pollutants so we call all breath cleaner, healthier air. The drone itself is equipped with the latest filtration and ion purification as directed by the European Space Agency. Viewing through an app on their smartphone, users can control the drone in a sort of augmented reality space, playing a variety of integrated games solo and versus other players. The more air they clean, the more points are awarded. Leaderboard and ranking features also encourage more cleaning!
Designers: Kavithasan Patkunam & Samay Sigamani
The concept was also developed as part of the KTH Innovation startup incubator in Sweden.
Designed and engineered to purify the air around us by using high-efficiency filter systems that are used in the International Space Station or ISS, which is currently orbiting around the earth.
The filter systems are integrated seamlessly into the propulsion units of the drone.
Computational Fluid Dynamics tools such as Ansys CFX and Fluent were used to understand the fluid motion/flow through the filters and the propellers.

Whether you don’t have time to make it to the masseuse or you’ve got a significant other with stingy hands, it’s important to treat yourself to a good massage every once in a while if not for the good feels, for the health benefits. This is especially true if you’ve got a desk job or are confined to a seat all day. Designed with this in mind, the Relacher Muscle Massager includes a neck and shoulder massager, posture detector and a mobile app that work together to ease back and shoulder pain.
Unlike other devices that simply correct posture by alerting the user when they’re slouching, the massage feature also soothes and relaxes the muscles to release tension and stress. Don’t worry, if you get too relaxed and start slouching it will send an alert direction to your smartphone. Using the dedicated ReLacher app, users can see how their posture is progressing and customize their massage type to fit their unique needs.
The Double Shot water purifier is one that your pet will love too! It earns its namesake for the companion water dispenser located at the foot that provides fresh H20 to any and all your pets at home or in the office.
The eco-conscious design ensures that any unused water ends up back in the lower bowl so it doesn’t go to waste. The unit also features a sensor system that detects when pets approach and will automatically refill their bowl if it’s empty. With its bead-blasted aluminum and stainless steel accents, it’s also aesthetically less invasive compared to other standalone water dispensers despite having the bonus Fido-loving functionality!

Not just for geometry geeks, the Pi bike is a functional twist on the fixie that was just released on 3/14, otherwise known as Pi Day (and, coincidentally, Albert Einstein’s bday)! The design applies the familiar shape of the pi (π) symbol to the frame of the bike. This far-out fixed gear’s high, flat top and low handlebars gives riders an extremely aggressive stance that looks anything but math nerd!
But was it as easy as pie to make?! Not quite. Before making molds, the designers sketched out the frame shape, tweaked the form using scale models made out of cardboard and plywood, and then cast the frame out of resin. After casting, it was sanded down and assembled by hand to form the fully functioning version you see today.
Coffee is like gasoline for humans, only it costs about 5 times as much from coffee joints! That being said, it’s no wonder more people are heading back into their own kitchens for a good old-fashioned homebrew. If French press is your style, look no further than the Rite Press. While it functions just like a traditional French press, its design features a twist that makes it much easier to clean.
While the standard press is annoying to clean, the Rite Press has a patented removable bottom section that twists off. After you’ve pushed down the grounds and enjoyed your coffee, simply untwist the bottom and rinse it out for minimal cleanup that takes less than a minute. Because timing is everything, the Rite Press also features a magnetic hourglass that counts down the perfect brewing duration so you get the perfect cup each time!
Designer: Owen Read
Custom designed and manufactured thermometer has a simple Blue, Green, Red scale. Blue is too cold and Red is too hot. The Green zone is centered at 200 degrees, which is the optimal temperature for a great cup of coffee. The Rite thermometer lives in the shaft of the filter so it’s easy to use and is always on hand.
Timing is everything, especially in a coffee press. Both under- and over-brewing lead to bad-tasting coffee. Our built-in and simple to use hourglass is set for precisely 3 min and 30 seconds. When the sand is done flowing, it’s time to press down the plunger and enjoy an amazing cup. The Rite timer is magnetically attached to the Rite Press.
Patented Removable Bottom
French Press cleanup is notoriously annoying. We’ve solved that issue with our patented removable bottom, allowing you to conserve energy, water, and time.
Is it a bike? A trike? A scooter? The TF1 is actually all three! This transforming kids trike/bike hybrid instantly transitions from a three-wheeled design that’s perfect for training into a two wheel bike. Its pedals can also be removed so it becomes a push scooter little ones can ride. Not only does it adapt as children’s skill evolve, it grows with them thanks to an adjustable saddle and handlebars. For added safety during training, its rear wheels rotate inward and outward to lock it in place and keep it from rolling uncontrollably.
Admittedly, when I first saw this, I thought, a beauty mirror with a speaker – that’s kind of interesting. Turns out, it’s so much more than that! This futuristic design is actually equipped with an array of sensors that detect your face’s unique skin condition and then dispenses the appropriate eye cream, moisturizer, toner, sunscreen or other topical solution you need to maintain healthy skin! Better yet, the smart design connects wirelessly to the internet to stay abreast of the weather and time of day and makes calculations accordingly to ensure you’re protected whether it’s sunny, dry or humid outside. Of course, it will also play your favorite tunes too. GENIUS!
