There are two reasons why I love the ClickStick, a revolutionary deodorant dispenser that has been developed by two amazing people. The first is the obvious – it's innovative, functional and high-tech; the second is that you can easily gift it to those smelly co-workers without really offending them. After all who can fault such inventiveness that brings about a unique change?
The ClickStick is the first refillable eco-friendly deodorant applicator that can save up to 90% of deodorant plastic waste. It features a unique electronic dispensing system. What makes it smart is that it delivers the right amount of deodorant to the ideal spot on your armpit, avoiding stains, skin irritations and sensitivity. The more important thing is that thanks to the right amount of deo dispensed via the accurate push-button, unhealthy overuse of aluminum (active ingredient in deos), is minimized.
The accompanying app reminds you to apply deo everyday; it reminds for refills and ensures that you're always protected. There is a premium Kickstarter Chrome Edition that looks super sexy, the kinds that we at YD would get! Do check that out.
The eco-friendly refill containers are filled with your choice of deodorant/antiperspirant and are easily replaced. Designed trendy, the deo holders come standard, with the magic push-button delivery and LED lights. The modern look gives that edge on your bathroom shelf. Know more here.
We caught up with the designer duo and asked them more about their creation. Gilad, the founder of ClickStick, is a passionate engineer, out-of-the box thinker, great cook and a nice guy. As a graduate student in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Princeton University, he started working on the ClickStick project with his best friend Carla. Carla is an exceptionally smart person with unique attention to details (that's why they had to build 20 prototypes until she was happy with the location of the push button). “ I truly believe that with your help we can revolutionize the old personal care industry and make every day product like deodorant exciting and fun.”
Gilad recounts, “I had been frustrated with conventional deodorants for many years, continuously getting marks on my clothes and that wet and sticky feeling. Mostly, every time my deodorant ended and I had to throw away all the plastic, I wondered why we still have to dispose so much waste after using it for just a few weeks. In addition, deodorant application is one area of personal care that hadn’t made significant (or any) advancements since the 50′s. I said to myself that there must be a better way than turning the archaic knob that always reminded me of dial phones and old manual car windows. When I met Carla, the idea of ClickStick started to come together as a product. She immediately identified with the need of ease of use products. Carla’s father had suffered from ALS and had difficulty in simple everyday tasks. She also realized that there's no reason that in the 21st century, everyday task is not easy and fun.”

The 'Tear off a Scoop' is a clever Packaging Design for a detergent that integrates a scoop spoon. Simply tear along the dotted line to fashion a spoon, which scoops out sufficient suds for a regular wash. Perhaps Tide would like to take notice! What do you think?

Flooded streets can be catastrophic for travelers and emergency personnel alike, so Noè is a project that explores innovation in urban roadways by introducing a new, more effective storm drain. Implementable to existing drain systems, the design does more than provide drainage for excess water. It also separates large and small debris for better clog prevention and easy removal while an internal rotary mechanism creates a whirling action that draws waste-free water into the pipe system. The result is easier maintenance and more reliable drainage.
Designers: Cesare Tamagno & Simone Di Gioia

Once upon a time, the umbrella was merely a fashionable accessory… but impracticality doesn’t suit the modern wo/man! The best of both worlds, Brolly is the discerning user’s ecological, high-end solution for all those bad weather days. The 100% RPET canvas whisks water away while its ergonomic Resound handle and the unique auto-open/close system won’t let you down in the rain.

So the holidays are coming up soon and as always you want to stay on the top of your game with gifting. I have a brilliant suggestion on hand, that will give you a head start – Ollie, the next generation app-controlled robot. Flipside, you may want to get this for yourself! Why? Cause nothing is better than tech that is full of awesomeness!
Dedicated to the total adrenaline junkie, Ollie is a robot that rockets around at 'floor-warping speeds'. Ollie spins, flips, and does all kinds of crazy tricks and due to its tubular design, he can tumble over and keep on rollin'. If you remove the optional tires, you can even do drift racing on smooth surfaces. What I love about it is the perfect blend of good design with technology and fun!
Ollie can spin like a top, do flips and 180′s, and more when you combine gestures using the joystick and trick pad within the app. You can create, master, and share your trick combinations with friends.
Engineered for speed and customizable, you can pump up your ride with different tires and hubcaps available through Sphero’s online store. Conquer any terrain and connect to the next level through Connected Play.
