RaDoTech lets you perform a full body scan to see how healthy you are on the inside

Yes, your smartwatch can read your heart rate, but does it know your stress levels? Does it know how your lungs are performing? Or whether your liver is okay? Or how about your pancreas, bladder, or even stomach. Designed to help you get a more holistic view on your body, vitals, and internal organs, RaDoTech is a simple hand-held device that can, in a span of 5 minutes, help you perform a full body scan to see how healthy you are on the inside. Bring it in contact with certain acupressure points on your body, and the RaDoTech reads electrical currents to judge the health of your internal organs. The clinically tested results are sent to your phone, allowing you to see how each individual organ is performing, giving you an accurate health reading, along with personal, actionable insights to help you live better.

The RaDoTech could be labelled as a consumer tool that’s great for everyone’s health, but it’s best suited for people who want to keep better track of their internals. They could be medical patients, fitness freaks, or just people who want to take better care of their loved ones and themselves. Designed to work by simple touch, the RaDoTech helps you examine your body right down to the organ level to make sure you’re living your best life possible.

Cosmetic bottles that stack into each other for functionality as well as beauty

Place the Cubessence bottles on top of each other and they stack almost seamlessly. The trick is in the design of the bottle, that comes with an angular base, but a regular skirt around it. The bottle’s bases are placed at an angle to avoid the neck of the bottle below, but that doesn’t mean they sit at an angle when you place them on their own, because the side walls still extend downwards in a regular fashion. This allows each bottle to individually look slightly unique, but look beautiful together, as they vertically align, forming a totem-pole of sorts. This makes the Cubessence bottles both efficient to pack, as well as interesting to look at! A third benefit lies within this design too. The angled base reduces wastage. By making sure that one corner of the base is lower than the others, Cubessence makes sure the pipe within the bottle sits at this lowest corner, pumping out every ounce of the liquid to make sure the bottle is completely empty before you decide to dispose of it!

The Cubessence is a winner of the Red Dot Design Concept Award for the year 2019.
