    Ecocapsule is a 14 x 7 x 7-foot pod, calls “the first truly independent micro-home,” is a new, teeny tiny smart home powered entirely by the sun and the wind. You can take it just about anywhere, hitched to the back of your electric car—which, by the way, the Ecocapsule’s 9700 Watt-hour battery will happily charge for you.
    The capsule has membrane water filters installed into its upper surface, which remove bacteria from rainwater before funneling it to a designated tank beneath the floor. The walls are padded with high performance thermal insulation, helping to reduce energy requirements and maintain a comfortable indoor temperature. It’s even got a proper loo, for those who were always averse to going in the woods. Cool

    A new smart watch strap  has launched on theIndiegogo, called the Kairos T-band. It is a strap which is equipped with a hidden display and is available as either T-BAND OD with PMOLED display or T-Band HD (Hidden Display). The T-Band Smart Strap project is currently up for funding on Indiegogo looking to raise $50,000, with pledges starting from $129.
    "T-BAND HD (Hidden Display) model is designed for people who want all of the smart watch functions while being super discreet. LED panels are embedded below a thin “membrane” like material which hides the display. When it’s turned off (default mode), the T-band HD actually looks like the ND model (rubber band). When there is a push notification or alert, the hidden LED panel lights up and display the necessary information.
    Battery life is same as the OD model (200mAH) which is expected to last 2-3 days on a full charge. The HD model however has one downside- it can only display English alphanumeric text and numbers. Non-alphabet characters (such as Chinese, Japanese, Korean Arabic, Russia, etc.) will not be displayed. Images and videos are also not able to be displayed through this model.
    The unit is powered by ARM® Cortex-M4 processor with Dual mode Bluetooth Classic and BLE. This setup allows the T-band to be compatible with a wide range of smartphone models (from old to new). The OD model is also equipped with an on board Mic for Speech to Text capabilities (requires 3rd party app support).
    " This idea looks cool!

    Your wristband turns into a fully functional quadcopter drone with a camera. It flies out, takes a few pics or video, then flies right back to you.  If that sounds too science-fiction for you, be aware that it’s a real product in development. It’s called the Nixie Drone, and the project literally just got wings: it recently won $500,000 through a design competition held by Intel. That’s right, Intel was holding a MakeItWearable Challenge, aiming to further invigorate the wearables market. Nixie recently got the top prize, giving it enough cash to take the rough prototype much closer to becoming a product you can buy. Good idea!

    Jerusalem-based industrial designer Naomi Kizhner created a series of sci-fi jewelry than harvest kinetic energy from a human’s body and turns it into electricity. Called "Energy Addicts".
    "It interested me to imagine what would the world be like once it has experienced a steep decline in energy resources and how we will feed our energy addiction. There are lots of developments of renewable energy resources, but the human body is a natural resource for energy that is constantly renewed, as long as we are alive"
    Blinker. Placed on the bridge of the nose and across the eyelids, it harvests energy from eye-blinking.
    Blood Bridge. Each spike is inserted into a vein; blood stream spins the wheel and creates movement likely to be turned into electricity.
    The jewelry is made from gold and 3D-printed biopolymer. Each piece contains sharp stings that neatly pierce the skin and serve as bio energy harvesting devices. The energy is generated from the body’s subconscious movements, such as blood flow or blinks of an eye. Kizhner created several designs to be worn on different body parts and to draw energy from specific physiological functions.

    Satsuki Ohata's Fondue Slipper uses higher-temp, harder-wearing PVC to produce extremely custom-fit slippers. Cool idea! Right now, they're a work of art;
    "*This prototype is using PVC, which hardens at 200~300 degrees Celsius (392~572 degrees Fahrenheit). This time I used my foot mold instead of my foot. I am currently developing a kit which allows Fondue Slipper to make at home. Soon this new kit will be complete and you will be able to make your own Fondue Slipper that fits your foot perfectly. You can wear Fondue Slipper both inside and outside. It can also be used as slipper by folding the heel, or you can wear it without folding the heel if you want to run."

    A team of scientists and engineers from carnegie mellon and the university of virginia have developed "the Drinkable Book". It is designed to educate people on how to purify water, and the paper inside the book is used to clean water. Ech book is printed on technologically advanced filter paper capable f killing a range of waterborne diseases like Cholera, Typhoid and E.Coli, and once the water is filtered it is 99.9 percent pure, which is similar to normal drinking water. This idea looks cool.
    This filter paper will revolutionize water purification. It costs only pennies to produce, making it by far the cheapest option on the market. Each filter is capable of giving someone up to 30 days worth of clean water, and each book is capable of providing someone with clean water for up to 4 years. Once water is passed through the filter, bacteria count is reduced by over 99.99%, making the filtered water comparable to tap water in the United States of America." The book was designed by Brian Gartside.

    Volvo's inflatable child car seat, Cool.
    "Rather than being constructed out of rigid plastic and metal, their seat uses heavy duty drop-stitch fabric--the same stuff you’ll find in outdoor gear such as inflatable rafts. So you can pull that car seat out of a bag, and watch it balloon into a seat. It does this amazing feat in 40 seconds, thanks to a silent internal pump. "

    Created by San Francisco-based professional interface designer Todd Hamilton, this new iWatch concept fuses the sleek design of the Nike FuelBand with the minimalist interface treatments of Apple's iOS 7.
    Todd explains a little more about the inspiration behind his iWatch concept design:
    “A few months ago Thomas Bogner posted an iWatch mockup on Dribbble that looked like a marriage between a Nike Fuelband and an iPhone. It was an impressive concept that got a lot of people excited including myself. However, it had a major flaw: the orientation of the interface made it impossible to use.
    I had some free time over the holidays so I decided to take a stab at the problem and create a more user friendly concept. I wanted to retain a slim form factor like the Fuelband and incorporate familiar UI components from iOS 7. It needed to feel natural on the wrist and look like something Apple would actually produce.”

    A private submarine yacht concept by Motion Code: Blue.
    "James Bond villains, take heed: Here's a way to one-up all those other yacht owners in the bad-guys club — the Migaloo Private Submersible Yacht. This luxury design concept for a 377-foot submarine was created by design firm Motion Code: Blue, and could become a reality if some well-heeled buyer steps up.
    Of course this vessel features all the usual super-luxury features that are so important for taking over the world on your yacht, such as a helipad for quick escapes, a two-story owner's suite with a private patio on the bow, eight VIP suites for all your henchmen, and plenty of room for those white cats you love to pet as you concoct your diabolical schemes.
    And for all those lovely ladies that constantly surround you — because they like you, they really do — there's a huge beach club midship, complete with a pool, bar and plenty of deck space for them to bask in the sun
    ."
    About the price, they didn't say, but Charlie White of Mashable noted that a comparable Virginia-class attack submarine by the U.S. Navy costs $2.3 billion to build.
