Water calligraphy device by Nicholas Hanna

Chinese men painting characters on the ground of parks with long brushes and water. Nicholas’ version is mounted on a flat-bead tricycle which is a ubiquitous form of transportation in Beijing. Passages of Chinese characters are input to a computer which transmits them to an electrical system that actuates an array of solenoid valves. The valves release droplets of water on the ground as the tricycle moves forward, thus forming Chinese characters that slowly pool together and eventually evaporate entirely.

N12 bikini by Continuum Fashion

The N12 bikini is the world’s first ready-to-wear, completely 3D-printed article of clothing. All of the pieces, closures included, are made directly by 3D printing and snap together without any sewing. N12 represents the beginning of what is possible for the near future.

Roto Moulder by Studio MyFirst

Product design students Andrew Duffy, Craig Tyler and Edward Harrison have built a machine for making plastic objects, which is powered by a cordless drill. ‘myfirst roto moulder’ is a flat pack DIY rotational moulding machine created by studio myfirst. With the use of moulds and cold setting resins, hollow plastic objects can be formed on the machine time and time again.

Sun cutter project by Markus Kayser

The Sun Cutter Project explores the potential of harnessing sunlight directly to produce objects. The machine is a low-tech, low energy version of a laser cutter. It uses pure sunlight, focused by a ball lens, to repeatedly cut programmed shapes in up to 0.4mm thick plywood as well as paper and card.

Glusion by Sci-arc & X Lab Studio

In the search of new materials and fabrication methodologies, glusions’ approach establishes a constant dialogue between the physical properties of a material and the design intents. This is an investigation and interest in material behavior and form finding. this project engages the robotics in a rheological quest. glusion addresses geometry, motion control, variable material and forming logics.

The diwire bender by Pensa

The DIWire Bender is a rapid prototype machine that bends metal wire to produce 2D or 3D shapes.Wire unwinds from a spool, passes through a series of wheels that straighten it, and then feeds through the bending head, which moves around in 3 dimensions to create the desired bends and curves. Vector files (e.g., Adobe Illustrator files), text files of commands (e.g., feed 50 mm, bend 90° to right…) provide DIWire’s instructions.It’s essentially a 3D printer that describes lines, instead of volumes, in space, and it could be used for anything from prototypes to customized products.

Valse automatique by Hermann August Weizenegger

“The old Orpheus played his Lyre so beautifully, that he did not only delight the ancient gods, but also made stones melt away. He would have found great joy in a collaboration of a designer and a musician together with craftsmen, sound engineers and interface designers, bringing their talents together to create a synesthetic as well as synergetic happening.”

ShapeShift, architectural materialization – CAAD and EAP

ShapeShift is an experiment in future possibilities of architectural materialization. This project explores the potential application of electro-active polymer (EAP) at an architectural scale.

Homeplus Subway Virtual Store by Tesco

Tesco Homeplus opened a virtual grocery store in a South Korea subway station, where users shop by scanning QR codes on their smartphones.

Wheel printer notebook cover by Postalco

Postalco is a stationery and leather goods company based in Tokyo and owned by Mike Abelson and Yuri Abelson. Based in Tokyo since 2001, they strength to produce finely crafted products that nowadays have garnered them praise and devoted fans not just in Japan but also around the world. All of Postalco’s products are born out of observing people’s daily lives. Thus, the printed wheel cover inspiration comes from seeing the tracks of the tires of the bicycle through a puddle, spinning the wheel with ink on paper can be a variety of stripes.

Drawing Apparatus by Robert Howsare

Design is a task that takes place surrounded by many other factors. In most cases the designer tries to take care of every detail so nothing can spoil the final result. On this basis, Robert Howsare plays with the arbitrary factor to create an exquisite collection of posters.

Senseless drawing bot by So Kanno & Takahiro Yamaguchi

This is a self-generated drawing machine that using chaotic movement of double pendulum and drawing abstract line dynamically in realtime. The modified electric skateboard with double pendulum detecting the direction of the movement of pendulum by rotary encoder on the fulcrum of it and amplify the wobble by moving right and left.

World’s first chocolate printer

Last year, a clutch of researchers at Britain’s University of Exeter developed the first 3D–ever chocolate printer—and the world rejoiced.

Ski design, development and testing – Black Diamond Equipment

A massive amount of effort and innovation has gone into their new line of Freeride Series skis. Watch the video here as they take you through all of the the crucial steps from CAD design to prototyping to field testing to manufacturing to quality assurance testing.

Gravity stool by Jolan van der Wiel

The Gravity Stool thanks its unique shape to the cooperation between magnetic fields and the power of gravity. Departing from the idea that everything is influenced by gravitation, a force that has a strongly shaping effect, he intended to manipulate this natural phenomenon by exploiting its own power: magnetism.

The Toyota Prius X Parlee Concept Bike

Toyota reached out to Parlee Cycles and Deeplocal to build an aero road bike infused with the same innovation that went into the design of the Prius.
