STIHL Leaf Blowers “Autumn Calendar 2010″

This super cool calendar is developed to promote the product of leaf blowers by STIHL. So bad I didn’t find it when I make the “10 unusual calendar designs“;

As I know, it is the first tear-off calendar, that tears off its leaves automatically! To show the necessity of STIHL leaf blowers in an entertaining way – day by day. Due the fact that leaves fall in autumn, their calendar covers the time period 09/23 – 12/21.

Aspiral Clock [link]

This super cool clock called Aspiral is handmade by inventors Will Aspinall and Neil Lambth in London.

How does it work? The spiral face you below turns slowly over twelve hours. The red ball rests on the spiral ledge; as the spiral turns it travels along the ledge to the middle. At the 12th hour it drops through the hole in the middle to begin its journey again at the bottom. There are lots of things can be customized, like the clock face color/pattern time markings…

Current time on the clock, 4:45

Bubble Shaped Skyscraper is a Fresh Water Factory [link]

Design Crew for Architecture have created an incredible water purifying skyscraper that looks like dozens of soapy bubbles stacked one on top of another. Capable of making freshwater efficiently and sustainably using a series of bubbles filled with water-filtering mangroves, the unconventional building pushes the envelope of what a skyscraper is capable of doing.

Using tidal powered pumps, the brackish water ((water that has more salinity than fresh water, but not as much as seawater) will be brought up into the tower and circulate through the mangrove plants, which have the unique ability to thrive on brackish water and perspire freshwater. The freshwater sweat then evaporates and condensates into dew on wall of the greenhouse and is collected in a freshwater tank. The resulting freshwater can then be distributed to the fields using gravitational flow.

Play ground play table [link]

Korean studio nothing design group has designed ‘play ground play table’ which allows users to grow plants in it. made of wood, the table is divided into different sized square sections to accommodate various types of plants. users also can raise fish or use it for ordinary storage.

This a a pretty odd design…My question is: How to water those plant? since the table is made of wood..is watering will cause problem? damage the table itself?

Glow in the Dark Loo Roll

Definitely fun product. I would like to try…em, one day.

In a world where scientific discovery and exploration is slowly but surely unraveling the myriad mysteries of the universe, it’s gratifying to know that some idiot can still find time to come up with such a ludicrous invention as Glow In The Dark Loo Roll. It won’t enlighten us as to what happened at the beginning of time, it will shed some light on the subject at hand, and it’s a lot funnier. Like all things luminous it needs light to charge itself up, so to speak, and the amount of light it gets will determine how long it glows for.

Wind up socket [link]

Wind Up Socket has a timer to it, once you set the duration and time’s up, the electricity supply to that socket gets cut off. For grownups who don’t have many restrictions and can self regulate, this one may seem more cumbersome than anything else. But for moms with teens who don’t comprehend “half hour of TV / Videogames time”; this is booty!

The “Etirement” lamp – lamp with dimmer [link]

Based on an orgaic skin-and-bones body, the Etirement has both: a skin and a skeleton. Pulling the rod you see in the center there adjusts the light the lamp gives off. The intensity of the light lowers down and rises up according to the distortion of the fabric membrane.

The designer of this object, Rémi Bouhaniche, calls the temporary, changing shape of the Etirement “a poetic time from a daily action.” Very pretty!
