O2 Magnetic Dumbbell


Rate This Concept Now!

Overview: Looking for a variation in your exercise routine? How about the O2 Magnetic Dumbbell, one that allows you to do many different exercises thanks to the embedded electromagnets. One of the biggest advantages that these dumbbells possess is that thanks to their compact size and magnetism, they are easily transportable. They adjust to all kinds of training routines as we can simply switch the polarity of electromagnets and get going.

Features

  • The strength of these electromagnets can be set by adjusting the level of electric power according to the work out intensity wanted by the user.
  • It is no longer necessary to carry different regular dumbbells for ten different work out levels, instead only one magnetic dumbbell will always meet the current needs of different training intensity levels.
  • By integrating the push-pull power of the embedded electromagnets, users are no longer bound to the local gym.
  • The display indicates 8-circled bars which each represents an additional weight of 3kg.
  • The user can conveniently choose the right training weight ranging from 3kg to 24kg at a glance.
  • The user can follow the repetitions of each training-set as they are indicated on the display in the middle of the device.

W.E.T – Water Enhanced Tempelhof


Rate This Concept Now!

Overview: The W.E.T. system harnesses solar energy and H20 to enhance public spaces. As it rains, the design collects water used for cleaning & fire emergencies. Excess water is kept in an underground collection tank where it is then dispersed through misters to keep the public cool on hot days. On especially rainy days, extra water is used to supplement the surrounding irrigation. On top of the beacon, a solar panel collects the sun’s energy to power lighting at the foot & top of the system that keeps the area illuminated at night.

Izotz – Intelligent Food Conservation System


Rate This Concept Now!

Overview: They say words have power – for example don’t call it a bowl of veggies, call it a bowl of stir-fried exotic vegetables with tangy sauce, dollops of butter and a dash of crushed pepper to spice it up. Salivating? Likewise, new-age refrigerators are Intelligent Food Conservation Systems with a dash of Innovation. The Izotz is one such appliance that has some interesting features – read on to know more.

The Izotz is mounted on the kitchen wall and sits half inside and half outside. The appliance is such that it takes advantage of the outside temperature and adapts to it. For example, during winters it takes advantage of the cold temperature outside to sustain the internal cooling of the fridge and thus lower electricity costs. And during summer it takes advantage of the solar energy to power the fridge.

The appliance even sports an herb bed that breaks down their internal cellulose, an organic compound, which Izotz later converts into a biopolymer. When we store some food inside the system, it gets coated with the biopolymer, which in turn vacuum seals it to retain freshness. This layer can be easily removed and is recycled by Izotz. This project is one of the shortlisted Top 35 Electrolux Design Lab Competition entry for 2014.
