Clever Medical Design: ZipStitch, a DIY Non-Invasive Substitute for Stitches Based on Zip-Ties

I once got stabbed in the head with a wooden knife, during a martial arts class. To close the wound, I had to go to the ER to get stitches in my forehead. It was both gruesome and expensive. The doc couldn't do much but stitch the wound shut, so if there was some DIY way to close the wound, I'd have done that instead and saved myself the bill.Well, now there is a DIY way to keep wounds shut, and it's scalable to the length of the wound. ZipStitch is a clever invention that requires no expertise ...

Topas ecolodge aims to be a model of sustainability

From conception, the goal of the Topas Ecolodge in Vietnam has been to encapsulate sustainable practices at every turn. They also carry a heavy burden of social responsibility by focusing on providing local jobs and sourcing materials from the surrounding areas whenever possible. Nestled into a mountainous region in North Vietnam, they aim to assist the five local hill-tribes that remain largely untouched by the modern world. The vast majority of the 100 employees live in surrounding villages o...

Auto Safety Feature of the Near Future: Airbags on the Outside of Cars

In World War II, tank crews would cover their vehicles in sandbags, logs and even concrete. None of these add-ons would completely stop or deflect an incoming shell, but the idea was that the more material you have to soak up an impact, the less the explosive force would penetrate into the cabin. This principle would also be useful, if impractical, during collisions between civilian cars. And a German auto supplier called ZF Friedrichshafen AG believes they've found a way to make it p...

Shy Girls: Lay And Be Lonely

Shy Girls (aka Dan Vidmar) returns with a lighthearted, slightly melancholy tune from his forthcoming album Bird On The Wing—set for release 1 March on Keep Cool / RCA Records. The song is lyrically sparse and, despite its vulnerable subject matter, infectious. “But if there is something I could belong for / It would be tranquility / When I’m quiet there is a motion” Vidmar croons in the …

Apple made the AirPods, Pitaka made them better!

The AirPods are pretty great the way they are, but ask any designer and they’ll say that they could be much more. Ask designer Tang Gan of Pitaka and he’ll straight up tell you that the AirPods should A. Wirelessly charge, B. Have a longer battery life, and C. Not be so difficult to find inside a backpack. Combine those three insights and you get yourself the AirPodPal, an attachment that augments the abilities of the AirPods… or as Tang says, “Makes your AirPods easier to carry, charge & find...

This human-powered bakery can provide bread for 150 summer campers a day

London-based practice Studio Micat helped some very lucky campers learn how to make their own bread while at summer camp this year. But this wasn’t your everyday pat it and prick it situation — the designers helped the children design and build a human-powered bakery. The innovative Brawn & Bread contraption uses a stationary bicycle to process grain, knead dough and fuel a wood-fired oven. The “bread gym” can provide enough bread for up to 150 campers and staff members every day. While most s...

90s Look is Coming Back - Graphic Design Collection abduzeedoFeb 19, 2019 We have been posting a series of posts featuring graphic design and web design work that, in a way, brings back the 90s in terms of aesthetics and style.

Kohler Mode makes showering more intuitive and relaxing

Have you ever been in a situation where you have turned on the cold water instead of the hot water, for your shower? It typically happens to me at hotels or when I go stay with my parents. Modern bathrooms can come with super-complicated fittings, because manufacturers want to pack in as many features as possible. I remember there was a time when jet-showers were a rage, so along with the main shower, came the super jets on the two side panels. They promised to give you a spa massage experience,...

How to Be a Leader, Not a Boss: 5 Secrets
