Peril Sensitivity Glasses Shut Out Stuff That Might Freak You Out

Peril Sensitivity Sunglasses

Fight or flight. Which response would you choose if you’re faced with one of your worst fears? If you often go for the former, then you might want to look into these Peril Sensitivity glasses. As the name implies, these glasses are “sensitive” to things that stress you out or cause anxiety. It determines this by checking your vital stats, care of the temperature sensor, pulse sensor, ambient light sensor, sound detector sensor, and accelerometer crammed into the device.

Once your anxiety level is up, the glasses shut down and black out your vision by making the glasses opaque. In short, these glasses let you block out the problem by blacking it out. Out of sight, out of mind–do you agree?

Edilble Business Card Gives You a Boost, Leads You to the Right Direction

Edible Business Card

 

High altitudes do weird things to the human body, even if it might be one that belongs to a seasoned trekker. Dizziness, nausea, fatigue, headaches–these are pains you wouldn’t want to have to go through in the middle of a climb.

First of all, it’s a business card, so all the hostel’s pertinent contact information are printed on it. Then comes the interesting part: each card has a detachable, edible section made from coca leaves that gives climbers an extra boost as they chew on it.

Drunk for Justice: Justice League Beers

Justice League Beer

Ever wondered what superheroes did to unwind? They probably went out on trips or pretended to be mere civilians for a change. Or they could be huge beer fans and brew booze whenever they get the chance…or not.

These Justice League-inspired beer bottle designs were created by graphic designer Marcelo Rizzetto. Each one features a superhero’s iconic logo and is given an appropriate name, based on who inspired them. For example, Batman’s is dark ale beer with his bat logo splashed across the bottle, while Superman’s is pale lager that’s dubbed “Super Strong Beer.”Continue Reading

Ooho Water Blob

Water bottles add to the bulk of trash that’s already overflowing in most landfills. Thing is, people still need their hydration on the go and some just can’t be bothered with water jugs. The alternative? These edible blobs filled with water created up by three London-based industrial design students Rodrigo García González, Pierre Paslier, and Guillaume Couche.

It’s called the Ooho and it’s a membrane made up of a compound formed from brown algae and calcium chloride. The gel-like substance is able to hold water and eliminates the need for non-biodegradable containers because, as mentioned earlier, it’s edible.

Pizza Hut Concept Table

 

Nothing beats pizza, fresh out of the oven. But waiting for the pie to be served can be a drag, especially if you’re starving and happen to be dining at a pizza place that’s filled to the brim with other equally-hungry diners.

In a quest to make the ordering and waiting process less of a pain, Pizza Hut teamed up with Chaotic Moon Studios to come up with this concept for an interactive NFC-enabled table. It’s essentially a gargantuan, table-sized tablet that hooks up to diners’ smartphones via NFC. It transforms into an interactive menu where you and your companions can choose what toppings you want on your pizza.

Flexibler is an Umbrella That Stands

Standing Umbrella

There are many reasons why most people prefer folding, automatic umbrellas. For one, they’re more compact and expand with a simple push of a button. They’re less of a pain to carry around and you don’t have to deal with one problem that people with regular umbrellas have: trying to make it stand when it’s prompted against a wall or table.

Solving this first-world problem are Liang-Hock Poh and Ming-Hung Lin, who came up with the Flexibler. It’s basically an umbrella with a flexible, adjustable handle that you can bend and twist this way and that to stabilize it when you want to make it stand.

A New Kind of SMS: Smoke Messaging Service?

iPhone Smoke Signals Case

 

Back in the day, our ancestors used to communicate to one another using nothing but smoke signals. Now you can do as what they did in the past (with slight modifications) with the SMS case, with SMS standing for “smoke messaging service.” It’s a case designed by Dennis de Bel which hides a chamber filled with lamp oil inside.

When the button on the side is pressed, the case heats the lamp oil up to produce wispy clouds of smoke. Of course, in order to respond via smoke as well, others will also have to have an SMS case or another contraption that can produce smoke.

Seems a little backward in this day and age of instant communication, so maybe that’s one point Dennis wanted to touch on with his project.
