神來之筆!Round 1


【神來之筆!Round 1 】

現在每人都拿著iPad/iPhone上班上課,是的,智能電腦雖然方便,但是足夠快捷便利的紙和筆仍是很多人的最愛,亦是小編每天上課上班必備。嗚嗚,可是小編很大頭蝦呀,我每天坐車都會隨意用便利紙寫上所見所感,但回到office,便利紙往往不知所終….

那就要靠這枝由澳洲設計團隊Neo LAB設計的Smartpen 智能筆了!它可以在我做筆記的同時將我的筆記數字化,那就不怕不見了便利紙啦!Smartpen 可以記錄你做筆記時的動作,通過位於筆夾上的掃描器將動作數字化。你亦可以通過藍牙與平板,智能手機或桌面系統連接。

小智慧訂書機


【小智慧訂書機】

小編今天幫朋友制作一本小冊子,朋友的小冊子設計是一本小書,趕著在明天活動用。我們一大清早便跑到書局把小冊子打印,想著一打印好便趕回辦公室訂裝,誰知我們一向用開的古老訂書機機身太短,訂不到小書中間,最后花了好一會又再趕回書局才訂裝完成,真折騰丫。。。
網上翻翻,看到這個可拆分式設計訂書機能輕易的規避了這些問題,為什麼不被我早點看到呢!? “Align"可拆分式的訂書器是由美國設計師 Kenneth Rubis 通過設計孵化平台Quirky設計,它不同於傳統訂書器那樣只能夠在紙張的邊緣處裝訂,而是完全可以做到想訂哪裡就訂哪裡! 設計師最大的改動來自其內部,,在這裡底座和主體是完全分開來的。首先通過底座來確定物體需要訂的位置,之后再用主體一錘定音。
意念簡單,用途廣泛,我喜歡!

一身兩用剪刀?


【一身兩用剪刀?】

小編身處緬甸孤兒院,今早正打算打開物資袋分派小禮物給小朋友的時候,突然發覺物資箱包得好實,老師給了我一把普通的剪刀,我一手拿起當界刀,箱子是打開了,但我手都不慎界傷了。。。。哭。。。心想如過我們有帶這把Quirky 兩用剪刀Sheath就好喇!!!

Compleat 便當包 Round 2


【Compleat 便當包 Round 2】

知道昨日的 Compleat 便當包不能滿足大家喇~ 擔心Sandwich 會壓扁? 可能可以考慮一下這個同樣由挪威 Unikia 公司設計的Food Bag,是用食用矽膠做的,還可以放進微波爐呢!小編覺得用它帶Pasta也是不錯的選擇, 你們有其他更創新的便當包設計分享嗎?

Compleat 便當包 Round 1


【OL的新寵,Compleat便當包 Round 1】

近日公司流行Sandwich便當,OL最愛,方便又唔肥,但裝三文治的袋同時開始變成比武場,無錯,這個比武好比名牌包包的競技,非常激烈,如果你是用一個透明的保鮮袋,實在是不入流再加點Leung呢。。。
這是由挪威unikia公司設計的彈性便當袋, 利用高彈性的矽膠布包覆三明治,再扣上三邊的扣具就可以完美封存三明治、漢堡,方便爽朗,成為大贏家~

最忠心的自拍神器!


【最忠心的自拍神器!】

空拍飛行器已成為潮流~ 但最新推出的 Lily Drone是一個會跟蹤主人的空拍飛行器, What!? 點解嘅!?
原理是Lily 搭配一組餅乾大小的 GPS 衛星定位器使用,只要將 GPS 衛星定位器放進使用者口袋或戴在手腕上,Lily 就會循著 GPS 訊號即使用者的動作跟隨拍攝,不用搭配任何 App,只要把它往空中一扔,Lily 就會穩定飛行與自動拍攝畫面,降落部份則透過內建的視覺技術系統、搭配攝影機,拍攝完畢時 Lily 會自動降落在使用者手上。

非常適合應用在滑雪或衝浪等戶外運動的好設計,不需拜託別人也能輕鬆補捉自己的畫面 ,See my face > 0 <

可樂變清水, 勁過飛無腿!


【可樂變清水, 勁過飛無腿 】

這款由美國OKO公司開發的先進淨水水瓶確實有著強大的過濾功能,將可口可樂倒入這款淨水水瓶中,再經過瓶口過濾系統的淨化後,倒出的液體猶如清水!
實際來講,其實水瓶是無法完全淨化出無色無味的純淨水,可樂當中的糖分沒有被完全去除,但是小小一個水瓶能有這樣的效果,還是值得一贊!

懸浮的美


【懸浮的美】

一個小小的燈泡也要發揮創意~ 沒看錯,他是浮在空中的丫,設計師 Simon Morris 酷愛各種各樣的懸浮產品,設計了小編也呆看了10分鐘的 Flyte ~

Flyte 由一個LED燈泡與無線電力接收器共同組成懸浮在空中的組件,而在燈泡的基座中則包含有一個電磁鐵。在連接電線的木制底座中則包含有一個無線功率發射器和另一個電磁鐵。將燈泡放在底座上,並慢慢的釋放它就會看到燈泡緩緩上升,並穩穩地懸浮在空中。這個底座同樣也可以作為智能手機的無線充電墊。

美,美,美~~~

FACTS ABOUT BRIGHT LIGHT THERAPY

FACTS ABOUT BRIGHT LIGHT THERAPY

The concept of bright light therapy, or exposing yourself to light in order to feel better, has been around for centuries, but modern science has revealed new ways to tap into its full potential. Thinking about getting started? Here are three key facts you need to know.

Sunlight is the single biggest factor behind life on Earth, so it should come as no surprise that it plays a key role in the your life — as it has in everybody’s! Many ancient cultures recognized (and even worshipped) sunlight’s healing properties.

Today, however, the overall amount and regularity of sunlight exposure we get is lower than ever. We live the majority of our lives indoors and travel frequently between time zones. That can have a variety of negative consequences, including that you may feel “off your game" with reduced mental and/or athletic performance.

If you’re considering light therapy as a way to feel better and bring your performance back up to optimal levels, here are three basic facts to keep in mind.

Your sub-optimal performance may be a result of circadian misalignment

In other words, the main point of bright light therapy in this case will be to shift your circadian rhythm to better align with your daily life. With a shifted, better-aligned circadian rhythm, you will probably sleep better and notice an improvement in your mood, energy levels, and general performance.

Your circadian rhythm is a set of physical and mental changes that your body goes through over a 24 hour cycle. (Womens’ circadian cycles are a little shorter, though.) This way your body knows when to be alert, when to wake up, and when to release certain hormones, for example. If your circadian rhythm is off, you may feel tired when it’s time to wake up or distracted when it’s time to focus.

The “master clock" of your circadian rhythm is in your hypothalamus, a part of your brain. There are number of other “peripheral clocks" located outside the brain that play a secondary role in timing your rhythm.

The thing is, your circadian clocks don’t set their own time independently. They take cues from zeitgebers or “time-givers," which take a wide variety of forms including tides, food availability, and social activity. Zeitgebers, therefore, are what will either throw off the timing of your circadian clocks or put them back on track.

Light is the primary zeitgeber for your master circadian clock

Light, which enters your retina and travels to your hypothalamus along the retinohypothalamic tract, is the most important zeitgeber for your master circadian clock.

That’s why there is so much scientific research and interest in bright light therapy as opposed to high tide therapy, for example. We know, for example, that exposure to blue — and to some extent green — wavelength light signals your master circadian clock that it is time to be awake. Therefore it’s a good idea to avoid your computer and/or TV screen (or at least use f.lux) right before bedtime!

Your master circadian clock is most sensitive to light when you are asleep

Recent research has shown that humans’ master circadian clock responds relatively stronger to relatively smaller amounts of light during the night. That means you can get greater circadian shifting results from shorter periods of bright light therapy during the night. In other words, nighttime bright light therapy is a great circadian rhythm hack!

There’s just one small detail. If you are accustomed to sleeping at night, shining a light in your eyes doesn’t exactly help you get the rest that you’re missing in the first place. And you definitely won’t make a habit of using lights like that on a regular basis.

That’s where this recent study comes in. It showed that millisecond flashes of light through subjects’ closed eyelids (while they were asleep) were enough to make use of the nighttime advantage for circadian shifting without affecting their sleep. This finding made nighttime bright light therapy a viable opportunity for busy people in today’s sleep-deprived, jet-lagged world. And we built the Neuroon to help them capture that opportunity!

So to sum up, bright light therapy isn’t really necessary for the lucky few who wake up with the sunrise, get plenty of sunshine during the day, turn off the computer and TV well before bedtime, and travel long distances gradually with ample time for circadian rhythms to adjust. For the rest of us, bright light therapy — in particular at night — may help keep the master circadian clock ticking normally.
