Zap&Go Portable Charger Fills Up In Just 5 Minutes

Array
Gear  |  Projects


The Zap&Go charger gets topped up in just 5 minutes! It contains a 1,500 mAh supercapacitor, itself mostly made up of graphene instead of the more typical aluminum. This, coupled with a special power supply that funnels power in much faster, means that you could top-up the Zap&Go, then use that to recharge your mobile device at a more leisurely rate later on (since it won’t charge as fast, no matter what). 
Currently a prototype only, it is undergoing a crowdfunding campaign with hopes of delivery in October 2015. A $99 pledge will secure you one.

Air umbrella is a real“invisible umbrella”, which uses jets of air to create an invisible canopy over the user. Watch the video of it in action. The Air Umbrella weights roughly 850 grams and is equipped with a battery that can power it for around 30 minutes and it is currently up for funding on Kickstarter.
"Air is everywhere on the earth. The flowing air can change the moving path of the object. The faster the air moves, the greater the energy is. The jet airflow can isolate some objects. So when we make use of the airflow, we can protect ourselves from the rain drops. Then the airflow forms an umbrella without a visible cover. "

Yoga Joes, Classic Green Army Men Performing Various Yoga Poses

Gear  |  Projects


"Yoga Joes" - classic  green army men performing various yoga poses, by Brogamats, which is up for funding on kickstarter.
"I made Yoga Joes in the spirit of getting more people to try yoga. More unexpected folks are reaping the benefits of yoga today, from professional athletes, to children, to military men and women returning from wartime. When this idea was birthed over a year ago, I thought – what if yoga could be passed around in a way other than from a yoga class. What if yoga could be transmitted through a toy. I’m hoping people pass Yoga Joes around as an inexpensive gift to friends and loved ones, who might like to give yoga a shot. Plus, I hope yoga fans display them proudly in their homes, offices, and yoga studios. And I hope kids get to be acquainted with yoga from a young age – celebrating military men and women for their focus and discipline.
And I hope people find them funny as hell

Gear  |  Projects
Stained Glass Driverless Sleeper Car of the Future by Dominic Wilcox. His design concept for a car is a stained glass shell wrapped around a bed. The driverless glass car prototype has only a bed inside, where the passenger can sleep while the car takes them to their destination. The car combines the hand made process of glass work with modern and future technologies to create a proposal of how transport could be in the middle of the 21st century.
It's called TaxiRobot. Wilcox predicts that by 2059, you'll be able to order the driverless car that you want to pick you up and take you where you want to go. You won't have to own a car at all--just rent one of a wide variety of cars, including some with jacuzzis...
