Pebble Garden Machine

The pebble garden machine is an additive manufacturing process developed for dry landscape design. It deploys coarse randomized aggregates, using epoxy resin as a binder and is assembled by an industrial robot into three-dimensional structures. It is perhaps the first application of 3D printing for dry landscape design and fabrication, creating counterintuitive geometric features such as tapering walls, cantilevering edges and low spanning arches. Overall artefacts have natural, man-made and machine aspects that are beautiful and breathtaking, capable to be produced at a fast rate.

Atmo

Atmo is a tabletop game console that blends physical and digital worlds. Our goal is to introduce tabletop games in a new, immersive form in arcades, entertainment parks and bars. Players can interact with the games using physical dice, tokens figures, cards, etc. The machine recognises what is happening on the table, and reacts to it with animations, light and sound effects - thereby making the play even more immersive. This solution mixes the quick and intense feedback of videogames with the social and tangible aspects of face-to-face boardgames. The result is a fun experience for all ages.

Fly Flapper RFID

The new RFID design can quickly scan the objects without repeated scanning, a maximum of 200 pieces in a long distance and storing 55,000 at one time. Even when it is out of battery, the scanned information can be saved automatically. It is very small and light, easy to hold and convenient to use. It can be connected with mobile phones through Bluetooth, in order to efficiently transfer the scanned information.It's a compact and light device, easy to use with good anti-fall and wear-resisting functions.

Happaratus

Happaratus is a power tool that is worn as a glove and enables a user to shape and sculpt hard materials such as wood or stone using the hand. The tool has great potential for disrupting traditional crafts, as it opens up the possibility of creating very complex shapes with a very intuitive workflow. A prototype has been tested by artisans from various disciplines including stone-carving and furniture restoration. David Neat, a London based sculptor used a Happaratus prototype to create Grinlings, a series of beautiful wooden objects.

Qoobi One

The Qoobi design concept originated from the desire to create a unit that is a world apart from any existing sound devices. The design of Qoobi combines two contrast but harmonic natures. Acute sides of a metal figure appear to be frozen into a glass prism. However, being heated, vacuum tubes seem to be melting the glass to enhance the outside world with the warmth and liveliness of music. The main focus was on its usability, reliability, and its sound excellence along with its appealing design. This unique concept is the source of pride to the Qoobi team.

01: Dimensioning Instrument

01 is world’s first dimensioning instrument. Carved in aluminum, and contained within a pen, pencil or stylus, 01 rolls to capture dimensions of any object, then logs, converts and shares the dimensions through your mobile phone. 01 is an essential tool for everyone who makes. Designers, engineers, architects, tailors, carpenters and masons for example. It’s also for the hobbyists, and even kids studying geometry, shop or physics. 01 is Crafted. Elegant. Thoughtful.
