Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall, this is the Most Bada$$ One of All

beauty_smart_mirror_layout

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!

This Drive is Just Delish!

dimsum_01

This quirky design called “Dimsum” is a bite-size twist on solid-state storage! The compact drive sports a soft silicone skin that almost feels like jiaozi dumpling. It’s tactile, easy to grip and perfectly cushioned to absorb impact. A cute finishing touch is its attached USB cord plugs into the body to form a convenient handle so it’s equally easy to carry.

Headgear for Little Humans

amor_helmet_07

This visually appealing and highly functional baby helmet Amor is a strong example of good design. S2VICTOR, the studio behind Amor, have paid close attention to detail and sacrificed little with safety here. From ventilation and skin irritation to quick releasing buckles and easy to clean fabrics, Amor offers A(lot)more upon the second inspection.

Amor is based on the average infant head sizes between 6 to 12 months of age. S2VICTOR set out to find a balance between a cute and sophisticated design. The Amor seamlessly blends between these two styles. With the added lip to the front of the helmet, Amor becomes this playful, cool cap in a sense. The option of breathable material gives choice to an array of colorful combinations. This safety helmet has now got the potential to become an everyday accessory.

The chin strap is fully detachable from the helmet, with a magnetic overlap at the rear making it easy to remove in any given situation. The release clasp for the chin strap is located close to the helmet itself, trading places from its usual placement below the chin. Instead, what you will find here is a soft fabric replacement to prevent any discomfort from the Nylon strap.

The Amor is a carefully designed step forward for safety equipment, we can only hope they consider an adult version to match.

Show Where You Go

I can’t count on two hands how many times I’ve used the appropriate hand signals to indicate the direction I’m turning on my bicycle… because the answer is… um… NEVER. I’m slightly ashamed to admit it, but I know I’m not alone! But since we’re not invincible, BLINK is here to protect us.

The design goes beyond the standard functionality of a bicycle nighttime blinker and actually indicates the rider’s intention to turn right or left or even when they’re braking. Using bright LED lights and a substantial screen, it brings heightened awareness to surrounding drivers, pedestrians and other cyclists.

The Phone Freshener Upper

phone_sterilizer_01

Trust me, you don’t even want to know what invisible things are lurking on the surface of your phone! Just think about all the things you touch in one day – money, door knobs, bathroom faucets – the list goes on. We wouldn’t rub our faces on any of these things, yet we have no problem touching our phone and then putting it to our ear!

That’s where the Phone Sterilizer concept comes in. It will clean and disinfect your phone in a jiffy using UV light. Almost like a cryogenic pod or a vertical tanning bed for your smartphone, you simply have to place your device in the pill-shaped container and switch it on for a quick and easy detox!
