Basic House designed by Barcelona based designer Martin Azua. It’s basically an lightweight balloon that can be carried in your pocket and used for shelter.
“The Basic House is a temporary housing solution so portable it can be folded up to fit in your pocket. Created from a metalized polyester material, when unfolded it self inflates with body heat or from the heat of the sun to provide an instant shelter. Once inside the shelter, the material reflects your body heat to keep the user warm. If reversed the material will reflect the sun to keep a cool interior.”

F.A.T. Lab and Sy-Lab are pleased to present the Free Universal Construction Kit: a matrix of nearly 80 adapter bricks that enable complete interoperability between ten* popular children’s construction toys. By allowing any piece to join to any other, the Kit encourages totally new forms of intercourse between otherwise closed systems—enabling radically hybrid constructive play, the creation of previously impossible designs, and ultimately, more creative opportunities for kids. As with other grassroots interoperability remedies, the Free Universal Construction Kit implements proprietary protocols in order to provide a public service unmet—or unmeetable—by corporate interests. (via The Free Universal Construction Kit | F.A.T.)

Well it’s about time.

Slända (Swedish for dragonfly) is a pen that at a first glance might not seem to have the ability to stand…

Oooh, that’s nice.

This gorgeous tactile keyboard was designed by Brooklyn-based Pratt student Michael Roopenian. After testing several different surfaces including stone and sand he arrived at this wooden key solution that’s cut from a single piece of sandblasted lumber. Anybody need an incredible industrial designer? He’s for hire. (via core77)

“Haptica is a Braille watch concept which, by function, enables the user to get a quick and accurate time reading while maintaining user discretion. Through form, Haptica elegantly negates the stigma of a disability while providing an intuitive, ergonomic, movable interface.”

Floating Lamp
At first glance, it looks like any other table lamp until you notice that the top half of the lamp is just floating above the bottom half. Must be an illusion, right? Nope. Electromagnets keep it suspended in thin air.

“Forget Shoes. What You Need are Kevlar Socks”
The somewhat misleadingly-named Swiss Barefoot Company wants you to wear their socks, which are made from kevlar with polyester nubs on the sole, and nothing else.
