Parents of preemies can find themselves at home worrying in the first days or weeks following the birth & miss out on building a physical/emotional connection. Baboo is a baby bonding system that creates a connection between the hospital incubator & the home, immersing new parents in the newborn’s progress as much as possible. It gives real-time information (awake, asleep, activity, weight, etc.) presented in a calming way to decrease feelings of stress, guilt & worry. Over time parents will notice these changes & establish a sense of pride for their little fighter!
Baboo is one of the first designs to use data visualizations in a 3 dimensional object rather than on a screen. When baby is active, Baboo mimics by moving its own limbs. When baby is awake, it also “awakens” with a gentle light. The weight of the baby is symbolized in the depth of Baboo’s movements

The biggest problem with camping is the battle with mosquitoes (and other creepy crawlies). No matter how much of the repellent you rub on yourself, they do tend to find a spot to attack you. The 'Anti Mosquito' is a mushroom inspired design that needs to be placed around the tent. The solar panels on the head source energy during the day and lure in mosquitoes and moths during the night via a soft glow, exterminating them using a current. Not the best way, but better than being bitten!

It's not the question of carrying money and cards; its how we carry it. A well-designed wallet is all that we ask for, one that is minimalistic, sexy and above all – functional. The silver lining to the SLIDE Wallet is the materials used, which is cork fabric & classic denim. Who would have thought that something as simple and sustainable as cork can be used to design a great wallet!
We caught up with the designer Calvin Kwok, and asked him what led him to create the SLIDE Wallet.
Calvin – The SLIDE Wallet was created after an inquiry from a friend who was looking to replace a traditional bi-fold (read FAT) wallet. I have always carried a front pocket wallet but I was definitely not in love with what I was using at the time. The following weeks were spent critiquing what was already on the market and sketching out a few ideas. Function was a driving factor in the design of the SLIDE Wallet. The natural materials of cork and denim sets the SLIDE Wallet apart from the sea of black and brown that makes up the men’s accessory market.
On a more personal note, Calvin says, "I am a project driven person with an eye for clever solutions to everyday problems. Previously, I spent a bit of time in furniture design but abandoned that medium after being confined to a small den in a condo. I ended up borrowing a 1921 Singer and picked up sewing as my new creative outlet. I started designing textile solutions to everyday problems for my own personal use.
STITCH & LOCKE came to fruition with the help of friends who were excited about my early wallet prototypes. They put together an early business plan to urge me to launch the SLIDE wallet Kickstarter campaign. Navigating the design and manufacturing world has been an exciting and rewarding experience."
Calvin's story goes on to re-enforce our belief that if you dream … you dream big and be big.

The key to a good scuba dive is knowing your surroundings, so the Scubus S provides multiple layers information to divers through augmented reality. More of a head-up display on the screen of the goggles, the wristband-controlled interface shows users vital info like depth, direction, water temp, air supply and more. Because safety is paramount in a dive, it immediately alerts to dangerous situations and gives users the ability to signal for help with the push of a button.
