    Scan Toaster
    Home  |  Design  
    This Scan Toaster by South Korea designer Sung Bae Chang for the Electrolux Design Lab 2008 competition. You can print the news, weather forecast and photos on the bread. This concept is simple, Plug in the toaster to a free USB port, place the bread, and the software will then start burning whatever it is you want.
    I have a new idea, Why not let the toaster can directly print and download the news, weather forecast via the Wifi network, not by the scan. It is simple, just press several botton: news or weather...
    "I got the idea from looking at my scanner and printer beside my computer," explains Scan Toaster's creator, Sung Bae Chang, a design student at Sejong University in South Korea. "I was chatting with my friends and suddenly thought, 'How about scanning to a piece of toasting bread?' and then started to brainstorm the idea."

    Da Vinci Alarm Clock
    Home  |  Clock  
    If you want to have 21 hours of awake time a day? The Da Vinci Alarm Clock let you follow da Vinci's 3.5 / .5 sleep schedule(a half hours awake, thirty minutes asleep) Designer Marc Owens explains his clock as follows: The Da Vinci Alarm Clock works on a very basic system. The Dot Matrix display will always show either Sleep or Awake. When the product is first switched on the display will immediately show the word Awake. This will continue to be displayed for 3 hours at 30 minutes. It just a concept.
    The Da Vinci sleep schedule, also known as the "sleep of genius" or polyphasic sleep, is a type of sleep pattern which involves sleeping not more than 5 hours a day. Some experts are more strict, arguing that to follow the Da Vinci sleep schedule, a person must become accustomed to sleeping an average of two hours a day, which is how much Leonardo Da Vinci himself slept; others take the term more loosely, allowing practicants to sleep a few hours a night.
    The Da Vinci sleep schedule is better suited to people who can control their daily schedules. Basically, the system requires followers to sleep in several 10-minute bursts, for a total of two hours a day. A variation of the Da Vinci sleep schedule requires people to sleep 20 minutes for every four hours that they are awake. This technique, known as "power napping" or the "Uberman's sleep schedule" is actually in use in many corporations as a way to up production of their employees.

    Sound Chair
    Home  |  Seating  
    The Sound/Chair by Matthew Plummer-Fernandez. Sound/Chair begins as a sound that is precisely crafted to form the shape of a chair when visualized as a 3-dimensional object using a volume, time, frequency plot. The chair is an exact replica of the soundwave graph. The result is a product with dual existence as both a sound and chair, and a new approach to designing products. This product was launched at the London Design Festival in September and will be on Sale at Selfridges September 2008 at £3950(about $7,900).
    fact 1: I made 719 sounds to finally reach the one I produced as a chair.
    fact 2: I do my own programming to graph the sounds.
    fact 3: There is a lot of mathematics involved in the process as the frequency domain has to extracted from the data and plotted against time and volume.
