This Audi-inspired electric scooter is designed to redefine sleek and safe commuting I think it’s about time we all admit that scooters are cool – even those aluminum kick scooters that would sometimes slice your ankle in two when they swung around too quickly. Scooters have had some major developments in recent years. With suburban millennials moving to cities, getting around the city on electric scooters has almost become synonymous with ride-sharing. Thankfully, electric scooters look a little more grownup than those slim, foldable scooters we grew up riding around the block. Daekwang Kim recently developed his interpretation of the electric scooter, e-Tron, with inspiration from the automobile manufacturer, Audi, to bring ...
This portable grill looks just like a classic metal toolbox! I’m assuming there’s a major overlap between people who love grilling in the outdoors, and people who love DIY projects… and this toolkit-shaped BBQ grill is perhaps the coolest gift you could give those people. Designed to look exactly like the archetypal metal toolkit you’d find in your garage or toolshed, the BBQ Toolbox from SuckUK opens up into a nifty outdoor grill with two grilling platforms. a compartment for resting your grilling tools (skewers, spatulas, whatnot) and two racks for storing your spices, herbs, and condiments.
Perfect for a nice alfresco barbecue, the BBQ Toolbox comes in a handy, ...
This modular low-cost flotation device uses recycled plastic bottles! The World Health Organization is spearheading efforts to help children in low-income areas learn how to swim, and the SAVIOUR concept attempts at creating highly-effective, low-cost training tools for children as they gradually pick up swimming. The Saviour is a modular system of interlocking tubes that help you create flotation devices. The tubes don’t float themselves, but rather, allow you to attach multiple plastic bottles around the rim to help the overall product stay afloat. You can either assemble the Saviour to form a U-shaped training apparatus, or join multiple pieces to close the U, turning it into an O-shaped ...
This retro-inspired grill gives charcoal infused flavours with the ease of using an oven! It’s not every day that we stumble upon grills that are purposefully built to bring the joy of charcoal grilling to everyone. Of course, the Gravity Series 800 charcoal grill with griddle and smoker we saw recently, does offer its service, but for grillers, it’s more about convenience and flavor – which the Spark Grill intends to provide in a sleeker and portable design.
We all know charcoal grilling tastes better, but they have been sidelined by gas grills because the latter are convenient to use in comparison to the messier charcoal ones. Most grill-outs today, therefore, happen over a ...
Just like luban lock puzzles, this chair is entirely made of wood and won’t require screws for assembly! Burr puzzles are those three-dimensional, handheld cubic puzzles made from finicky, interlocking wooden sticks. Essentially, they’re really complicated locks that won’t come apart without a fight. Depending on its country of origin, the burr puzzle’s shape will vary. In China, a variation called the Luban Lock is the most well-known burr puzzle and it’s been around for centuries. Luban Lock is a traditional, Chinese folk toy whose concave and convex wooden sticks interlock perfectly, forming a solid geometric shape. Cultural traditions like the Luban Lock can provide plenty of inspiration for furniture designers as these intricate toy designs provide insight ...
This Apple Watch band with two onboard cameras means your wrist now shoots photos/videos in 4K! Love your Apple watch and want to upgrade its functionality to the next level? Meet this cool new camera feature coming along with a strap designed exclusively to house your Apple Watch. Called the Wristcam, the band features two cameras: an 8MP lens on the front and a 2MP camera that faces you when you lift up the wrist to see the watch screen. Interestingly, the Wristcam weighs only 23g but it’s the overly bulky appearance – owing to onboard cameras and battery – that may be slightly putting off for a few. But if you, like us, love the ...
This houseboat was designed to blend in the natural landscape & encourage sustainable travel A young couple who were living in a modest apartment in Budapest reached out to architect Tamás Bene to design a small houseboat on Lake Tisza which would be their summer getaway home. They only had one ask – the structure would allow them to be immersed in nature so they could express their love for the region. The houseboat was a perfect concept that fulfilled their wishes without being fixed or grounded just like the river Tisza which is the source of lake’s thriving ecosystem.
The compact houseboat gives the residents an opportunity to spend time closely in the ...

Tesla Cybertruck-inspired camper trailer for Tesla fans who can’t just wait for the truck! If you’re waiting to drive the most outlandish vehicle of our time, the wait is going to be a little bit longer. Allegedly ballistic and tougher than a tank – the Tesla Cybertruck is not going to be a real deal any time before the end of 2021. If you can’t wait that long to get into a Cybertruck – there are a few rip-offs you can get into right away. But if you’re an outdoorsy person, you’d want the imitation to take you off-road and into the woods where you can relax for a night or two under the ...
This outdoor puffy jacket isn’t just weather-proof, it’s fireproof too! Most weatherproof jackets fail to consider the one element that’s often key to the outdoor experience… fire. Imagine this – you’re outdoors on a trek, and you’ve made it to your campsite. Craving some food or even a coffee, you build yourself a campfire, and a rogue spark or ember flies into the air, making it onto the sleeve of your jacket. You immediately brush it off, but it does manage to burn a small hole through the outer fabric of your jacket, not just ruining it aesthetically, but also compromising its ability to keep you protected in the rain ...
Here’s a Dyson motorcycle concept that doesn’t ‘suck’! You’ll blow right past your opponents…
Alright, enough with the Dyson puns. They don’t have that much wind in them (Okay, I promise that was the last one).
The Dyson Bike started as a mere warmup sketching exercise for Rashid Tagirov in 2019. Seeing how the aesthetic began taking shape, and finding himself with extra time on his hands in 2020, Tagirov decided to take his sketch to the next level and flesh it out in 3D. The Dyson Bike champions the British appliance company’s design language, turning mundane geometric forms into a well-balanced thing of beauty.
A uniting factor ...

SimplyColor3D Add Multi-Color Models and 3MF Support SimplyColor3D has now now moved to version 2.0, and it includes a lot more features. 
With the increased availability of multi-color 3D printers, there is a demand for multi-color 3D models. However, there’s a huge problem: there are hardly any such models available in popular 3D model repositories. 
In fact, I took a cruise through Thingiverse and found only ~2300 entries tagged with “multicolor”. While that may sound like a lot of 3D models, it is only 0.05% of Thingiverse’s vast collection, or about 1 in every 2000 3D models. In other words, there really aren’t very many color 3D ...
Tama Is A Hand Hug For Those Cold, Lonely Nights With 2020 the way it is, celebrating Christmas might be a bit lonely for some. Maybe you’ve been cooped up “two weeks” already. Maybe you’ve thrown off the restraints of government tyranny. Either way, everyone needs a good hug. You can’t do much about social distancing and the rampant virtue signaling, but you can do the next best thing and get yourself a hug. A hand hug that is. By which I mean, a mug… with a sleeve… to stick your cold little nubs in:
As you can see, Tama isn’t a hugging machine, per say (I’m pretty sure you ...
MIT Researchers Develop A.I. To Detect a COVID-19 Cough Yes, COVID-19 has made the year 2020 a living nightmare and yes, it’s still here… we think – Is it? No? Yes? Well, at least the flu is no more. You already know how some people are asymptomatic (meaning HEALTHY), which is used as an additional method to keep you in fear, but I digress. Now, your healthy cough can (allegedly) reveal if you’re haulin’ virus bits around unbeknownst or not.
Magic A.I. 8-Ball Says… You Diseased
MIT researchers Jordi Laguarta, Ferran Hueto, and Brian Subirana have developed an artificial intelligence model that is designed to distinguish COVID-19 asymptomatic individuals from audio ...
A Portable 4K Touchscreen For High-Res CAD on the Go With 4K screens the norm nowadays, you would think there are many an option for portable 4K displays. Well, there are. There are just a couple of problems. First of all, there are a lot of options. Second, the combo of 4K, touchscreen, and features means a price point that skimps on one or the other.
The Lumonitor brings the best balance we’ve found among portable 4K displays with the widest range of applications from coding and CAD to streaming and gaming, at a price-point that, while higher than some, is reasonable for what you get.
Best Portable 4K Display ...
iFactory3D Launches Low-Cost Belt 3D Printer German startup iFactory3D has now launched their inexpensive belt 3D printer on Kickstarter. Inspired by the 3D print community, Artur Steffen and Martin Huber developed an open source belt 3D printer design way back in 2018. They posted this design on Thingiverse, and apparently received demand from visitors to provide a kit to build the device.
Here they discuss how the project started:
While open source designs are freely available, that doesn’t mean anyone is capable of sourcing the parts and putting them all together. In reality, there are relatively few people that can do so compared to the masses ...
LEGO’s Latest Largest Set Is A 9,036-Piece Roman Colosseum If you thought the Death Star was the biggest LEGO set in existence, then you’re still living in the 2010s, my friend. As of November 2020, the award for the biggest, baddest set in the Denmark-based toy company’s arsenal goes to the new 9,036-piece Roman Colosseum.
Just ask LEGO designer Rok Kobe, who talks about the set’s many details in a recent video on the LEGO YouTube channel:
According to Kobe, he never intended for the Roman Colosseum to be the largest LEGO set currently in existence; this was actually just a byproduct of him adding more detail to the ...
Volvo Donates New Cars To Be Dropped 30 Meters For Rescue & Extrication Practice You’ve heard of YouTubers who drop phones and other pieces of tech to test their durability, but have you ever heard of a company actually donating their products for the sole purpose of destroying them?
This is exactly what Volvo has been doing recently. In order for Swedish rescue teams to get into the practice of saving lives, the car company has donated ten of their newest models so they can be picked up and dropped from a height of 30 meters.
You may be wondering, “Why not just use some old, banged-up cars?” The answer lies in modernity. Cars ...

Microsoft’s Xbox Series X Takes The Fridge Meme and Turns It Into A Slick Advertisement Well, they’ve done it. They’ve hacked into our brains. Barely a day after my neurons were all a-buzz with interstitial activity over the thoughts of the next-generation console as “mini-fridge”, Microsoft busted out a premier release of a CGI trailer for their new Xbox Series X Fridge and it’s slick!
Now I’m pretty sure they are not gonna be releasing a juiced-up super fridge to the masses, but with a video, description reading “Power Your Memes”, who knows to what end they might channel our thoughts!
Now to be clear, Microsoft is using meme culture in a tongue-in-cheek way to ...
The DiFOLD Origami Bottle Is a Reusable Liquid Container Which Folds In On Itself I jump at any chance to save the environment with my actions but sometimes, these alternatives can be a tad inconvenient.
