The SV/BS Swissvoice Bluetooth Speaker delivers great sound in a unique form factor that channels SV’s sporty identity. Precise bass response, upward and outward facing drivers, and detailed mid-to-high range sounds make it a top tier choice for steaming tunes. Unlike most small Bluetooth speakers, it’s equipped with dual screens: one that displays the time, and another that makes it easy for users to navigate their music library even when they’re not near the streaming phone, tablet or other device.

The LBS Portable Fire Extinguisher is established on Location Based Services technology and alerts residents the minute a fire starts in their locality. The purpose of the service is to evacuate the residents in a short, speedy manner and get the fire in control asap. Based on APP management, the extinguishers also help in sensing the core location from where the fire is spreading. An able tool, concepts like this can go on to help fight fire more efficiently.

There have been several occasions where I've walked out of the house with just my iPhone and forgetting to carry cash or cards. Trivial as this may sound, inevitably Murphy's Law kicks in and it's on these cashless occasions that turn out to be the ones that I needed money the most. With the QUICKDRAW Phone Wallet, HUSKK assures me that I will never be in such situations again.
With so many other options out there, why the QUICKDRAW Phone Wallet Case … to uncover more and get this question answered, I asked the HUSKK team the question and this is what they had to say, "HUSKK is much more than just slimming – it’s about cultivating the discipline to carry only what you need in everyday life, and to clear out excess baggage for better living. Phones are getting larger. Your pocket isn't. Something's got to give. Make the wallet smaller or better still, get rid of it all together!”
As Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook puts it, when asked on Charlie Rose about benefits of not carrying a wallet, “Nobody really wants to carry a wallet, you dont need another thing you need to remember to put it in your pants…you dont need another thing you can loose”.
HUSKK is a marriage of functional quality and design and the QUICKDRAW Phone Wallet is designed around a user carrying just a smartphone, the most intimate personal item you have in your pocket today.
"Crafted from high-end Italian vegetable tanned leather, which is the material of choice. It is a resourceful material, while at the same time natural and personal. This leather will develop rich unique patina and age nicely with time, making the relationship with your favorite everyday carry piece even more intimate."

In creating Jarosinksi & Vaugoin’s design No. 192, Thomas Feichtner drew inspiration from the classic methods involved in producing utensils by hand, a process typically used by the manufactory. The resulting product employs a clever combination of clear surfaces and radiuses with a theme of two diametrically intersecting phases that together lend the cutlery a highly individual character. Robust yet refined, the collection is well-balanced for both casual and formal table setting alike.

This clever canine creation, appropriately named “Hipster,” is a harness that helps rehabilitate dogs with hip problems such as dysplasia. The design serves not only as a harness for walking, but pulls up and strengthens the hip muscles to keep the femur in position to avoid popping out of its socket. With simple velcro straps, it’s as easy for owners to put on as it is for dogs to maintain mobility while recovering!
