This Apple Car concept is a 360-degree maneuverable, self-driving, two-seater for the future When you think about it, driving solo or even with one other passenger in a five-seater car is a wasteful thing! Many may beg to differ, but I think the purpose is defied when a vehicle capable of ferrying up to five people has just one or two alighting at the car park. That’s the primary reason I may for a minute visualize streets filled with two-seaters.
An Apple Car in that domain is slightly an overboard assumption but then we have been through a number of Apple Car concepts in the past, and all of them have some level ...

This space-saving foldable heater is as cool as your Xbox Series S A compact heater crafted for individuals who are fed up with the bulky and impractical design of static heaters that beam heat only in one position. This highly maneuverable heater is different from those traditional ones in all respects though!
Winters brings with it chilling cold and consequently, and out come the good old heaters to neutralize things. While heaters solve the intended purpose, they don’t always look as good as modern radiators. Nor are they as compact and handy as some other appliances. Therefore, I’m always left with the unsatisfied craving for an ultra-compact heater that looks good, does ...

Renault Pet Communication EV is the future of maintaining your pet-life balance We cannot rule out the fact that interacting with pets can improve a human’s physical and mental health. Ask any pet parent and they will wholeheartedly vouch for it. But as I see it, not everyone of us gets enough time to spend and communicate with our pooches or kitties. Travel and work schedules are two biggest criminals. An electric vehicle design for Renault, aptly called “Pet Communication Device” sets out to provide a stylish and accessible transportation concept that could level things up in our favor going into the future.
If you’re lured by new design and innovation, you ...
This futuristic ferry terminal looks like an alien’s gantry and will begin construction in November 2022! The Chongqing Cuntan International Cruise Centre is an upcoming futuristic ferry terminal designed by MAD Architects for Chongqing near the Yangtze River.
Terminals and transportation centers are escapist by design, bringing us either to some bygone era or somewhere in the distant future. Take the TWA Hotel at John F. Kennedy Airport or the recently renovated King’s Cross Train Station—the former brings us back to the 60s, while the latter takes us to some crossover between the 1920s and the 21st century.
Still, early on in its conceptualization phase, the Chongqing Cuntan International Cruise Centre is an upcoming project from ...

Created by Spanish design studio Nagami and To: it has been dubbed The Throne and it ...
Can You Turn Wood Into Velcro? Velcro is awesome. Whoever thought of using two fabric strips (one with tiny hooks and another with small loops) to hold things together is a downright genius. Everything would have Velcro fasteners on them if it were up to me! But alas, that can’t be the case, or can it?
YouTuber KURAHITO thought the idea of Velcro was so unique and simple that he tried applying it to wood. By chiseling different sized hooks and fasteners, he set out to see if you could stick two wood blocks together without any adhesive. The results are interesting, to say the least:

This Stop Motion Milk Crate Creation Video is Just So Satisfying To Watch Making a milk crate shouldn’t be a big deal. I mean, it’s just a bunch of wooden planks nailed together.
And yet, there’s something special about how YouTuber omozoc made their milk crate. It could be a mixture of stop motion and cartoony sound effects, but this video is poppy, snappy, and a treat for those who love some good ASMR.
The way the wood is cut using different kitchen utensils makes it look almost effortless. What typically includes minutes of cutting and clouds of flying sawdust is condensed into a few still photos played in seconds.
Even the way ...
Can Military Helmets Withstand A Hydraulic Press? Helmets are supposed to protect your head. That’s what they’re for, after all. But military helmets are a bit different. While bike helmets, hard hats, and the like are supposed to prevent damage over a wide area, military helmets ensure bullets don’t penetrate through a single point.
There have been many types of military helmets over the years, as seen in this video by Crazy Hydraulic Press. To kick off 2022, they pitted a couple of military helmets (a steel one from 1968 and a Kevlar one from 2008) against possibly the strongest industrial machine there is.
They first did ...
This 3D Animated Video Shows What Makes The Statue of Liberty Tick Though you could easily pull up Google to research facts for yourself, you would be missing out on the awesome animation work done by Jared Owen. He uses 3D animation software to explain things, and what better way to do so than with moving pictures made using a computer?
His Statue of Liberty video, for example, gives an in-depth look at the inside of Lady Liberty:
Did you know that the outside of the statue is made out of thin, 2.4mm sheet copper? Or that its original color was, well… copper?
Liberty Enlightening The World (the real name for the ...
YouTuber The Q Turns Old Plastic Bottles Into 3D Printing Filament Though people like to say 3D printing is an easy way to make something yourself, the materials required aren’t exactly cheap. A decent 3D printer will already set you back a couple of hundred dollars, not to mention the filament needed to print whatever it is you want to make.
While he hasn’t quite found a way to make a cheaper 3D printer (at least not yet), YouTuber The Q takes solace in that he was at least able to make the filaments more affordable. How? By reusing old plastic bottles, that’s how!
Breaking down old plastic bottles into filaments ...
Spongik Cleans Dishes With Natural Materials & Prevents Bacteria Buildup Washing dishes with a sponge is often a nightmare for those who can’t afford a dishwasher.

This 3-in-one sponge set is made from natural materials, making the dishwashing task safer for you and the environment.

This Wooden Chevrolet Silverado Is Packed With Moving Features Action figures are always better when they have moving parts. This wooden Chevrolet Silverado carving by YouTuber Woodworking Art is no exception. 
While the artist could have made a static carving and called it a day, he added a few extra pieces to give the wooden pickup some much-appreciated articulation.
A Comfy Interior With Adjustable Seats
Hollowing out the massive piece of Fujian cypress provided space for Woodworking Art to stretch his creative muscles. He installed rear seats in the back while front seats with working recliners were placed in the middle. Way up in the front, you can find a ...
YouTuber Accepts Dangerous Build Ideas From His Fans Ending the year with pure excitement can put a bit of pressure on content creators who are trying to please their followers. One of them is YouTuber Alex Apollonov of I Did A Thing.
With the pure intent to connect more with his subscribers, he did what any self-respecting content creator would do – he solicited some ideas from his fans and tried his best to produce them. First was a treadmill belt sander.
Treadmill Belt Sander
The project was easy enough for Alex. He just replaced the running belt of an old treadmill with a custom-fit roll of sandpaper. ...

Un ciel nuageux pour camoufler le futur modèle de Maserati Plus qu’une tradition, c’est un procédé vital pour les constructeurs automobiles. Camoufler les voitures avant leur sortie officielle revêt plusieurs intérêts et contraintes qu’il faut avoir en tête et avec lesquels Maserati décide aujourd’hui de jouer ! On vous en parle de suite.
Dans les faits, les constructeurs automobiles sont contraints de sortir les véhicules sur route ouverte pour faire des tests en conditions réelles, et parfois faire les derniers réglages nécessaires avant de pouvoir dévoiler la voiture au grand public. Les phases de conception et fabrication des véhicules sont alors plus ou moins avancés. En phase de développement, on ...

Domino Artist Created a Huge Harry Potter LEGO-Domino Chain You’re either a Lord of The Rings fan or a Harry Potter fan. There is no “both” or “neither”; magic fans only deal in absolutes. That said, this LEGO-domino creation by Lily Hevesh is for the Harry Potter stans.
Released last June to coincide with LEGO Harry Potter’s 20th anniversary, this hodgepodge combined 25,000 dominoes with the new LEGO Harry Potter set into a giant screen link.
According to Lily, a screen link is a video editing trick where multiple shots are made to look connected. Using a similar red and gold color scheme for the dominoes and LEGOs helps sell the illusion that the single ...
La surprise sous cloche : Collection Morphose par Constance Guisset pour Ibride 2 ans après les tasses morphose, la designer française Constance Guisset voit les choses en grand tout en reprenant ses traits si caractéristiques sous forme de cloches.

Constance réinterpréte la cloche de service, en un objet mystérieux, grandiose et fantastique. Telles des pièces d’art elles trouveront aussi bien leur place en cuisine, sur une étagère, sur une table haute ou basse, le champ des possibles ...

Kara Pure Is an All-in-One Water Harvester, Purifier, & Dehumidifier Even without a medical degree, the healthiest thing you can provide others has to be water. Forget all that chia seed and kale nonsense: you won’t survive a week without water.
With this mindset, Kara Pure has got to be one of the healthiest things you can invest in. It’s a water harvester, purifier, and dehumidifier all in one.
Like any water harvester, Kara Pure takes in surrounding water vapor and condenses it into drinkable H₂O. Depending on the humidity, it can make up to 2.5 gallons (10 liters) of water a day.
But before water can be dispensed through the middle ...
Citroën MY AMI BUGGY : le hack des designers pour qu’il devienne (vraiment) cool ! Depuis sa sortie début 2020, la micro-citadine fait couler beaucoup d’encre ! A contre courant tant dans son approche que dans son style et sa manière d’être distribuée (vous pouvez la retrouver dans les magasins du groupe Fnac-Darty), elle a de quoi susciter l’intérêt.

La Parentesi de FLOS plus proche que jamais de l’idée originale de P. Manzù & A. Castiglioni Il est d’usage de considérer bien des éditions spéciales, desquelles les éditions anniversaires font partie, comme de simples opérations marketing. On est heureux de voir que cette Parentesi 50 déroge à la règle, offrant un morceau d’histoire à elle seule !
 
C’est ce fameux tube coudé, esthétiquement très fort, qui a instinctivement permis de baptiser la Parentesi (comprendre parenthèse, en italien). L’idée d’une lampe qui pourrait glisser verticalement et pivoter à 360° est issue d’un croquis de Pio Manzù, designer industriel méconnu du grand public et décédé avant la conception de la lampe. Le croquis représentait une boîte cylindrique ...

Concept Car : Air4 la Renault 4L volante Quand Renault décide de rendre hommage à son modèle emblématique 4L, les choses ne sont pas faites à moitié… Une collection complète de modèles sont alors repensés, déclinés, extrapolés par différents créatifs et designers. On notera à travers ces hommages, des versions inspirantes comme celle du designer français Mathieu Lehanneur baptisée Suite N°4 et depuis quelques heures maintenant le modèle AIR4.
