Lumio is a multi-purpose portable lamp in the shape of hard-bound book designed by Architect Max Gunawan. The light turns on when you open the cover and turns off when it’s closed. You can transform Lumio into multiple shapes for many different functions – as a table lamp, a wall sconce, ceiling pendant, ambient lighting, outdoor lighting or come up with your own unique ways to use Lumio.

While 3D printer still requires the knowledge of 3D modeling and special software, 3D Doodler is something for our ordinary people – a pen that can draw in the air! With 3Doodler, you can actually wave through the air, only the line your pen creates stays frozen, suspended and permanent in 3D space. Sounds magical? And it truly is!
Ever caught yourself doing the air-drums in the middle of a song? It is kind like inevitable behavior when you are so immersed in your beloved music. However, the traditional drum set is probably one of the least portable musical instruments. Thanks to Kévin Depape, who comes up with a wonderful concept of portable drum system – Y-Drum. It consists of 9 pads, 2 cymbals, a Bluetooth module and a companion app, either mobile or desktop. Just lay out the pads, link them to the app, select a drum kit and you’re ready to practice. All of the hardware is stored in a box that doubles as an amplifier. Too bad it is still a concept.[source]
Valentine’s Day is only 2 days away and you probably have been swamped by tons of different Valentine’s day gift ideas. Now, as much as that sentiment is endearing, it might be fun to switch things up a bit – like what Hoxton-based art collective Hubbawelcome did with their “I love you so much” Valentine’s Day greeting cards. The cards feature earnest looking young chaps, professing their love for the other in funny, unique and perhaps even disturbing ways. These unique greeting cards are hilarious, twisted and definitely worth checking out!
