Gear  |  Design


With this G-PAD, a slide-on silicone sleeve which turns your smartphone into a Game Boy. Created by Aws Jan who's currently trying to raise $16,000 on Indiegogo to put it into production, the G-PAD is designed to work with an iOS Game Boy emulator called GBA4iOS that doesn't require iPhone users to Jailbreak or hack their hardware to install. The sleeve slides up and onto an iPhone so that it perfectly covers the emulator's on-screen controls. There's no additional software needed and no Bluetooth connectivity. This idea looks cool.

It’s wine packaged in a paint bucket – a design concept by Lithuania-based ad agency, McCann Vilnius for Beaujolais Nouveau, a batch of new red wines produced annually by the Beaujolais region of France. The premise of the paint bucket design is that wine does more than intoxicate. It also, like paint, colors the lips and teeth of the consumer. The back of the bucket provides a color chart, letting the drinker know how many glasses of wine it might take to “paint” your teeth various shades of purple. Cool design.

Felix Re-Entry Suit

Array
Gear  |  Design
This re-entry suit designed by Bulgarian artist dfacto, an astronaut abandons his doomed craft and returns to earth. Perhaps NASA has similar things in mind, but this is just a wishful concept. Good idea!
"Watching the Felix Baumgartner jump was one of the highlights of the year for me. I was really blown away, and this is my homage to that moment: a theoretical look at what advances his jump could bring for space exploration and astronaut survivability. In this case it's a specialized hardened suit that can allow for re-entry from low earth orbit. Not a jump you want to make, but when you have to you'll want to be wearing this suit."
