Designed by Gustavo Brenck, Gig Pack is a scooter backpack for the daily use, intended to be used to travel small and medium distances. Generally, it is a nylon backpack with a fold-able aluminium structure scooter. When the scooter is not in use, it can be folded to the inside of the backpack and has plenty space left for your stuff. Holds up to 90kgs riders and with large rubber wheels, holes on the track are no longer a concern. It will be a good option to travel to work/school and fold it into a backpack when it is time to go into the building. Perfect backpack for travelers and daily commuters.
Sometimes designers come to mind different thoughts about what awaits us in the future. Hence, designer Ilshat Garipov put pen to paper and came up with the Smartphone Booklet – a disposable phone as thin as a cardboard made possible by switching from traditional silicon to nano particles. The whole idea based on this future material – cheap compacted mix that includes a base (something like cardboard), and the “smart” nano particles that can uniting in various combinations to create computing power, microphones, speakers, displays and etc.
The Booklet unfolds like a pamphlet with each side representing a commonly used application or function. Manufacturers can cut it to any size and once it’s worn out, just recycle it. Don’t worry about private information because everything is served from a cloud. Power is supplied by, SURPRISE, the sun thanks to energy absorbing nano-particles. [source]
Liya Mairson, a graduate of the Shenkar College of Engineering and Design, has created a children’s play house that takes cues from pop up books, except this on is life size. Called “My Space“, this playhouse was designed for small apartments which lack the space for a dedicated playroom. When opened, it encourages children to experiment with different layouts and lets them bring to life their dreams and imaginary worlds. When closed, it can be easily stored behind a door or under a bed. Pretty neat idea, just hope the cardboard can last long. [source]
