The World's Most Eco-friendly Kitchen

The World's Most Eco-friendly Kitchen

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.

The new can design utilizes a process called impact extrusion, a process where an aluminium slug (solid piece of metal) is pressed at a high velocity with extreme force into a die/mould by a punch. Conceptually, designer Dzmitry's concept could work, but it remains to be seen if it is comparable to the current standard can in price, quality and even feasibility for full-scale manufacture.

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."

A turn radius of zero? Purrr..... Another thing to add to my Wish List. from the site: Jeep pulled out all of the stops when they designed this one of a kind concept vehicle known as the Hurricane. The twin powered (that's right - 2) 5.7-liter HEMI engines deliver a combined 670 hp and 740 lb-ft of torque. One engine resides in the front, the other in the rear. Can excess be managed responsibly? To test the theory, Jeep equipped both HEMI engines with a Multi-Displacement System (MDS). Depending on the driver’s needs, the Hurricane can be powered by 4-, 8-, 12- or 16-cylinders. What does that mean? Torque on demand! This Jeep can climb obstacles other 4x4 vehicles can’t even comprehend. In addition, it has the power and traction to move from 0-60 in less than five seconds. “Jeep Hurricane is simply the most maneuverable, most capable and most powerful 4x4 ever built,” said Trevor Creed, Senior Vice President – Chrysler Group Design. “It pays homage to the extreme enthusiasts’ Jeep vehicles in form and off-road capability, but is a unique interpretation of Jeep design. Simply stated, it is the extreme example for the Jeep brand.” The Hurricane features a turn radius of absolutely zero, thanks to skid steer capability and toe steer: the ability to turn both front and rear tires inward. In addition, the vehicle features two modes of automated four-wheel steering. The first is traditional with the rear tires turning in the opposite direction of the front to reduce the turning circle. The second mode is an innovation targeted to off-road drivers: the vehicle can turn all four wheels in the same direction for nimble crab steering. This allows the vehicle to move sideways without changing the direction the vehicle is pointing.

I won't get into my political views on the death penalty (unless you're offering me whiskey) but I WILL tell you that this exhibit from the Museum of Capital Punishment is pretty amazing. from Yanko: In an exploration of potential museum experiences, the museum of capital punishment was invented. "Last Meals" is an installation that attempts to bring first hand experience to the table through 310 unique portraits of those executed in the state of Texas. The contents of the menu are comprised of the actual meals requested by prisoners killed on death row thus far. The trays portray a vivid portrait of the prisoners and the incidents that led them to their prosecution. The experience is further pushed, as one sits at confined dining units to digest the full scope, complexity, and finality of that moment. For those who do not have the appetite for this experience there are plenty of declined meals. Collect all 310 souvenir trays.

Make sure you're wearing nice underwear, ladies.... (*cough* Britney *cough*) from Yanko: Remember that whole fad when pagers, mobile phones, and even computers (cough -iMac) were transparent revealing their innards? What if we applied that idea to a car? The Gamma Concept takes advantage of new polycarbonate and composite materials to create lighter, stronger, and more fuel efficient cars. Sounds like the automotive holy grail. What gives? The Gamma’s visual language features large transparent areas to show the underlying structure and engine parts; to remind how the car works and present a more honest (transparent) design than its contemporary counterparts. All body panels are made from polycarbonate. To keep manufacturing costs to a minimum the panels are shaped using thermoforming, and then glued onto a carbon-kevlar reinforced aluminium chassis.

Wet, wild and wonderful concept. From Yanko: This transportation concept introduces the Hydrofoil technology into the sailing yacht world and shows an innovative approach to a traditional transportation field. Hydrofoil consists of a wing profile that moves underwater, similar to the wings of an airplane. When at wind speeds over 10kn, Hydrofoil produces a lifting force which lifts the boat above water and reduces the displacement and friction of the boat enormously. Thus it enables open ocean travels above the waves at the high speed of up to 30kn and provides space for 2-10 maritime jet setters. Designer: Arnold Freidling

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.

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.

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
