I have a love/hate relationship with Yanko Design's site. I love that they serve up a dazzling array of great products that make me literally bounce up and down in my chair and emit disturbing little "yip yip yip" noises. I hate the fact that some of the ones that bring me closest to retail ecstasy are only concepts. Sigh. This mechanical midget butler-wannabe is one of those. Just imagine: your alarm sounds and you roll over to find not a wad of bills left on the table from your guest the night before but your CHOICE of coffee, juice or hot chocolate AND TOAST! Yes, TOAST! And if you know me, you know I love me some toast. But alas, until this concept becomes a reality I will leave my ad in the paper for "vertically challenged mini-man to serve as morning butler. Some back-scratching required. Must wear gloves. Stumpy fingers creep me out."

Blast those blonde moments sky-high.... from Yanko: Fireworks Help Find Your Car Every time I get out of a car I yell to my friends the exact floor, side, and column it’s located on. Two hours later we’re all wandering around trying to find it. Constantly clicking the remote keyless entry doesn’t help unless you’re within audible distance. I need something bigger, something I can’t miss. How about fireworks? The Fireworks Locator system by futurist with a sense of humor Mac Funamizu uses holographic projection technology to set off a display of lights and color you can’t miss. A remote activates an emitter installed on the top of your vehicle. That’s pretty much it. Feasibility aside, I could totally see Honda using this idea in one of their future ads. Imagine hundreds of Hondas creating an unforgettable light show.

Think superhero mermaids.... from Yanko: Hot Jet-Ski Action with No Environmental Reaction I can ski above the water with an electrically charged motor? Sign me up! The Foiljet MR1 provides a speedy water motorcycle experience while supposedly causing minimal wake in the water and relatively no noise when in operation. Mermaids better keep their heads down for this one. Designers Matt De Bellefeuille and Robert Vandenham bring it to you straight: “An environmentally friendly recreational vehicle powered by a high torque 48 volt electric motor with benefits that include increased safety, efficiency and low noise. A unique and innovative vehicle which utilizes the latest in battery technology to provide unique thrills with no cost to the environment.” Check out the imagery and additional words below and tell me where the first race is because I want to be there with a big soda to watch the crashes. Designer: Matt De Bellefeuille & Robert Vandenham

Another amazing concept design from the Yanko Site: An Urban Oasis OASIS is a water purifier, air purifier, and humidifier all in one. The idea loosely biomimics how nature cleans, recycles, and balances air and water. Water is naturally filtered into clean drinking water. Whatever you don’t drink is given to the plant which in turn cleans the air and balances humidity. The concept is a bit esoteric but if you break it down to its simplest form, it’s quite clever. Designer: Yura Lee

Presenting the best way to get lost in a walking stick. The GeoCane by Felix Hardmood Beck takes the idea of a divining rod and finds you some great adventure in the great hiking pilgrimage. Stamping the ground creates a path that noone else has followed, creating a unique experience for you, the final and last one true highlander. Designer Felix Hardmood Beck puts it like this: “The goal of this project was to translate the central aspects and values of the pilgrimage into a digital object – a new interpretation of the traditional walking-cane: The GeoCane. This new cane shows various references to the historic and modern pilgrimage, as well as historic and modern forms of navigation. By using the GeoCane, the user receives a new understanding of the historic identity of pilgrimage. “Geographical coordinates for a specific goal are loaded onto the GeoCane through a docking-station. Throughout the Neo-Pilgrimage an integrated microchip traces the chosen path, so that you are never guided on an already known road. By a slight vibration at grasping hight, the cane leads the way for the user. The place of destination remains unknown for the user and is not of such great importance as the path in itself.” Heigh Ho! Designer: Felix Hardmood Beck

Another amazing concept design from the Yanko Site: Space Age Seating Roller Coaster Style Hankering for that roller coaster ride feeling? Live vicariously thru the 4NE1 (get it?) seating solution. These chairs are suspended from the roof of a vehicle. This reconfiguration increases the amount of interior space. The design was created with the elderly and physically impaired in mind but as its name suggests, anyone can use it. The design has excellent properties for impact absorption in both front and rear impacts. The safety system is further augmented by an anti-whiplash backrest that comes forward upon impact. Best part it the stowaway feature - neatly sliding up and down roof rails or folding up when you need to seat more cargo than people. A review of current products that cater to this demographic has revealed that although there are systems in place to accommodate wheelchairs within vehicles, many of these systems do not use space efficiently, are not cost effective, lack configurability and are often created with the removal and replacement of original seating. This system is completely innovative and takes a whole new look at how we perceive space within a vehicle. Concerns have been raised about structural strength within the roof , but with structural reinforcement at little added cost - there is no reason why a roof cannot support the 24G crash impact requirements. Even the build materials are innovative. The seats will be made from a patent-pending lightweight fibre-composite developed by Futuris Automotive, which has superb structural properties. What does this all mean for you? You may never see something like this in ordinary cars but don’t be surprised when they start popping up in mass transit systems. We like the idea but what about fat people? This doesn’t exactly make travel any easier for them. Designer: Christopher Simmons

This is a very cool concept for a kitchen island. From cooling beverages to cooking your favorite foods, the surface is equipped with sensors to get the job done. from eco-friend: EcoFactor: Designer kitchen with a unique blend of technology and eco-friendliness. From tabletop cooking to water temperature settings to under table compost box, Philips’ new Green Cuisine has everything that is needs to make your cooking area “green.” Unveiled at the Simplicity 2008 in Moscow, this futuristic kitchen makes the old dream of cooking and eating at the same place come true. The “Green Cuisine” is based around a table with a unique ability to cook anything, anywhere. Sensors mounted on the table detect any of your favorite dishes and apply the heat directly under the dish. The heat settings here can be controlled through touch-sensitive LED panels. Not only heating, this kitchen will work absolutely as brilliantly in cooling down your favorite drink as well. Water usage can also be controlled by selecting the temperature at which you want the water to ooze out from the taps provided. Even your kitchen waste can be put to good use, as this amazing kitchen also integrates an under-the-table composter, which in turn enables you to grow herbs on the table itself. Philips hopes that your house can boast of “The Green Cuisine” in another 3-5 years.

  • A bizarrely intimate and incredibly cool concept that I hope hits the streets one day. As long as it doesn't let people know when my mood is M&M Green. From Yanko: This is going to get a little hippie and spiritual so hold on.... A bizarrely intimate and incredibly cool concept that I hope hits the streets one day. As long as it doesn't let people know when my mood is M&M Green. From Yanko: This is going to get a little hippie and spiritual so hold on. It’s common to focus on emotions while ignoring or having any awareness of what that goes on inside our body. This lack of understanding between the two can lead to health problems, for serious. So if we could keep track of how our emotions and bodies relate, what would that look like? This portable device lets the wearer express emotions with colors by correlating them with biometric data. The idea is to create another way to externalize how we feel in a language anyone can understand. Someone walking down the street with flash red might be upset, in a hurry, or angry. A computer keeps track of your colors, sort of a diary of emotions that can be turned into choreographed motion graphic pieces. It’s an esoteric concept but one grounded in scientifically proven models. We all react to colors and in most cases, can assign specific colors to a range of human emotions. I’d love to see this concept come to fruition. Designer: Sara Forsmark

Still just a concept but a cool one at that. from the site: Tame is a concept that sets a status message synced with all of your devices and applications. If you’re driving or need some privacy, you can tell Tame to handle auto-responses to your phone, IM, text, Facebook, and more. You can store messages on each face, and when you need to change your status, just rotate the cube to the desired face. Besides a written message, Tame uses a red-yellow-green color coding system to let people know at a glance if they can contact you.
