A Speaker that Speaks to Your Emotions

Wayback Machine

Introducing, artificial emotional intelligence. That’s the name of the game for the Laier speaker. Over time, it learns you and your music tastes and how what you play relates to your mood.

It’s designed to distinguish between music types, rhythms, and to pick up on the subtle nuances that make a song happy, sad, fun, or mad. Then, it reflects associated colors and patterns of light on its 4 semitransparent layers to further enhance the mood!

A Smart Solution for Transfusion

Wayback Machine

Most IV systems utilize gravity infusion to deliver blood and medicine, but this solution lacks viability in certain cases. Designed with this in mind, the PIVS or Portable IV System features a smart pressure mechanism to squeeze existing solution bags. The amount and speed of the injection can be controlled directly on the device to accommodate different dosing and medicine specifications. Portable, lightweight and ready for use in just seconds, it’s perfect for IV therapy in the home or in a healthcare setting but even more so at emergency sites or even on the battlefield.

A Smart Timepiece for Tots

Wayback Machine

Meet, Findly, the friendly smartwatch that aims to connect parents and kids! Designed for children of any age, this playful wearable is focused on making sure kids never get lost.

It’s equipped with built-in GPS so parents always know their little one’s whereabouts, even if they wander off. Parents can tap in to an app on their smartphone that will display the children’s location. On the watch face itself, an arrow will point kids in the direction of their parents and display their phone and address in the event another adult needs to contact them. Better yet, parents can keep an eye on their kids vitals like heart rate and daily steps to stay on top of their health!

Designer: Xabier Larrañaga, Josune Ciriza & Josu Ahechu

A Snazzy New Way to Snap!

Wayback Machine

There’s evidence that Snapchat could be dying which means there might be room for a new moment-capturing service! Something like Snapshot could be a viable option with its tangible twist on image/video social sharing. This compact camera marries the physical and digital experience in an entirely new, fun way that can be taken and used anywhere. Its dual lens system makes 3D and image layering possible directly on the device. Users can easily insert emojis, text or any item between each layer. The donut-style design adds flavor and dimension into social sharing!

A small design detail to make the charging cable much better!

Wayback Machine

Baseus’s Maruko Video Cable is quite clever. Usually charging cables are an afterthought, but this USB charging and data transfer cable is quite cleverly designed, turning into a stand-of-sorts for your smartphone, propping it up as it charges it. With a plastic casing around the charging port that extends down the length of the cable, it acts as a third point of contact, holding your phone up in landscape mode, allowing you to watch videos or play games while charging. Its circular head design detail is pretty neat too, as it allows for easy gripping and pushing, making working with the cable a tad bit easier. I’m pretty sure no one’s ever thought of this before…!

A Slimmer, Smart Set-Top Box

Wayback Machine

If your TV set-top box is going to sit there in plain sight, it might as well do more work for you! That’s the idea behind the Smart TV Box. Slimmer and sleeker, it takes up less space than the average box and is less intrusive on your aesthetic. The top serves as a charging station for the remote control. If you misplace the remote, simply press a single button on the unit to locate it! In addition, the front of the unit also displays useful information such as the time, weather conditions, and more!
