The River Flowing System by Choi Hyong-Suk does not give its users the chance of wondering whether they have it set to tap or flow. The showerhead is placed ‘above’ the faucet and the water flows down as a miniature waterfall. Temperature and water pressure are controlled via one knob. The user simply turns the shower on and the water cascades down the bowl-lip, indeed offering the very best of both the worlds.

This is LED wristwatch and phone at the same time. It was created by industrial designer from California Johan Loekito. As it was noticed in description of device it is a collaborative project with Samsung Design America created in fall 2009.

Concept Phone, Liquid Battery Type, Transparency AMOLED, Aqua GUI

The device is called AQUA and it looks like it really consists of water. Designer found his inspiration on a wet table, where he thoughtfully drew different figures by his finger.

As a result he got a concept Samsung AQUA together with a graphical user interface and water-based display. It is assumed that the user can remove icons from the panel by simply rubbing the display with their hands. The cellphone runs on liquid type battery that apart from being eco-friendly supports the transparency of the screen as well.

Pablo's heart 01 (PB-01) experimental electronic instrument
hardware engineering by Junkyu Ko
software engineering by Jaewon Bang
model / performance by Cindy Sizer

CCollaborated and inspired by young indie artists in Seoul, PB-01 is a next generation electronic sampler which experiments with the sound in different mediums. The instrument elaborates with taking the analogue characters of existing instruments and transcending it to the digital, making it an innovative DJ performance culture. Instead of pressing buttons to trigger sound, you can play the sound samples with different units such as the horn and string unit inside the instrument. Also the sensitive body can be tapped and moved to amplify and transform the sound in different pitches and tunes. The user can perform and play with them in different ways where creativity allows. Pablo’s Heart was inspired by the form of the AK-16 gun that was a symbolic figure as a tool for destruction, the idea was to shift it to the idea of creation.

'Tap Water Bottle'is a bio disposable plastic refillable water bottle with a lid shaped like
a faucet handle. the motion of opening the water bottle is like that of turning on a tap,
making us reconsider drinking from the tap rather than buying bottled water.

Named after Henry Dreyfuss, the designer of the Model 302 and other iconic telephones, the Dreyfuss Special is a stereo speaker made from an upcycled telephone handset. As many of Dreyfuss's original phones were constructed from Bakelite, they are nearly immune to breaking down in landfills. Designers Jinsop Lee and Justin Kim claim on their site that they did not set out to recycle an existing product (saying that it is "a decent looking product that worked well, and just happened to use a recycled component"), but we think it's a marvelous reincarnation of outdated yet classic tech put to modern use. The form of the design passes from one generation to the next, as the nearly defunct landline gets repurposed as a portable MP3 speaker.

This device is to apply a controlling condition to a ball in order to rolls to only one direction. Let’s draw a straight line with a ball that has restrained with directivity. With added ruling device feature, the length of line will be measurable. Even people can draw an exact length of straight line as desired. The total length of line will be indicated on the product by installed measuring wheel. The mounting area is made with a flexible rubber material to provide the best tightness.
