If you are asked to improve the design of toothpaste tube, most of you might have the same idea like me – tube is tube, what else can you make a tube better? However, the students (Sungmin Hong, Yubin Choi, Yun Kim, Mi Jang and Seokgyu Hwang ) from Dankook University don’t think that way. They smartly give a hole to the toothpaste tube at the end to help to squeeze out the last bit of paste. Look at this inventive design, the hole at the end of the tube is meant to be used as a spinner. Simply put your finger in and give the tube a good spin, centrifugal force will push the toothpaste towards the tube top and make for an easy squeeze. It is a quite interesting design and will definitely add some fun to the tooth brushing time. However, thinking about the toothpaste you can save from the design and the extra money you need to pay for the new design, it might not really worth it. But I should still say it is a quite clever idea.
The Scroll Bookshelf is a bit old design, brought 5 years ago and still just a concept. Not sure why it is that hard to bring an innovative design like this into life. However, I have to say, even after 5 years, it still looks like a pretty neat design and worthy of a feature.
When talking about the mega yacht, the first impression comes into your mind might be something related to floating hotels with traditional luxurious interiors. However, Hareide Design, the award-winning studio thinks we should switch our focus from extrovert admiration, to creating a platform for people can better enjoy the natural surroundings. Get the name from its classic 108 m mono hull design, the 108M mega yacht concept features an elevated dining and viewing area, a tranquil garden surrounding a 20 m pool and a seamless transition to the water at the stern. The multi-functional space of the grand hall also provides a number of spectacular views for people to experience the beauty of the nature. Moreover, this hybrid yacht equips with 300 square meters of high efficiency solar panels which can provides the ship with enough power for slow cruising along quiet shorelines. For longer distance and higher speed, it can be switched to the option for diesel-electric propulsion. Overall, this yacht looks fantastic. However, I do have a concern, due to its open stern design, how the yacht will handle the flooding water during storm?
Who never lost an umbrella? And sometimes, it is really not our fault. They just disappear from where we left them. Hence, giving umbrella a lock is not a new idea in the industry and the only thing matters is how to make the lock compact and functional. Designed by Zhang Shuo, Daishao Yun, and Wang Wen-Year, UMBRELLOCKED is an umbrella with a special handle which has an inbuilt lock (like a bicycle lock) that extends outwards and allows you to loop and secure it around any pole, railing, or piece of furniture. It comes with a combination key, so you don’t need to be worried about losing actual keys at the risk of protecting your umbrellas! Pretty clever idea! I am looking forward to see in on market.
