This modern take on the gurney/stretcher aims to make rescue and recovery easier for paramedics, especially in solo operations. The modular design features two tank-style tracks at either side that provide traction and control for moving down stairs while keeping the seated patient stable and safe. Ideal for time-critical emergency situations, a simplified joystick control can be operated by a single medic while additional support is in transit.

One of the reasons why whales get stranded at beaches is because the signals that they send out gauge the depth of the waters may be distorted in areas where the shores are gently sloping. What happens is that they lose their way and bearings and end up washed onshore. The Whale Whispererr hopes to fix this problem.
This self-sufficient device (harnesses power via solar energy and from the waves), needs to be placed near coastlines where whales usually end up getting disoriented, due to the gentle slopes in the sea bed. They help in emitting the right feedback to the sonic signals sent out by the whales, thus preventing any accidents. Cool!

As a watch enthusiast, I have always questioned, why would men give up their sole symbol of prosperity and class to an e-ink display? The prime real estate in question – the wrist – is worthy of a mechanical creation that screams haute horology. However, my mindset changed when I came across the Kairos Mechanical Smartwatch, the World’s first and only mechanical smart watch hybrid.
Sounding almost like a contradictory statement, 'Mechanical Smartwatch' is a term that if full of promise when played right, if you balance both the 'smart' and the 'watch' aspects, you have a winner on hand. Picture yourself wearing a Mechanical Watch – your pride and joy – showcasing the movement in an exhibition caseback. And at the same time, in comes a call and your watch display transforms to a digital screen, informing you that your ex-girlfriend is calling and giving you the option of answering it or not.
Sounds very Bond-ish, but with the Kairos Mechanical Smartwatch this is a possibility. Combining the best of both the worlds there are two main models to pick from: MSW 115 and SSW 158. The biggest difference is that the MSW 115 model is equipped with a Miyota Japanese Movement while the SSW 158 is equipped with a certified SWISS Movement from SOPROD, a highly reputable SWISS movement manufacturer. Each Version comes in three variations.
The last bit of good news is that Kairos plans on perfecting their technology so it can eventually become the ODM suppliers to other Swiss watch brands. So for example, "Maurice Lacroix Mechanical Smartwatch – powered by Kairos". How awesome is that!

If you’re like me, then you haven’t used a landline phone in years! The entire experience is sort of pedestrian and banal, but I do daydream daily about how nice it would be to not have a dropped call every other time. The Hello Cord phone combines the best of both worlds with the user-friendliness and convenience of your mobile device and the reliability of a landline. It works in tandem with your smartphone via an app that lets you access all your contacts and dial straight from the screen. No more looking and punching numbers, and more looking and punching numbers!

DonGo is the stripped-down, bare-bones bike for those who like to DIY! In petrol and electric versions, either of the skeletal design can be delivered as flat-pack ready as possible. Certain components, like the frame and engines come standard, but the basic build of the rest of this modular moto makes it easily upgraded or modified to the user’s liking and riding preference. Better yet, it’s simplicity makes it affordable and incredibly easy to maintain for a lifetime of use.
