Out of this world
That the I.N.O.X. Titanium Sky High Limited Edition timepiece from Victorinox has been inspired by extraterrestrial elements is evident in its Naimakka paracord attachment, in white and speckled black, with Technora® inner strings. This para-aramid fibre, eight times stronger than steel, is known to have been part of a robotic rover landing on Mars; paracord has also been used to repair the Hubble Space Telescope. Each of these timepieces comes in its own shock-proof, water-proof time-capsule box.
Sprocket, from HP, is the technology’s answer to the problem of printing photographs clicked on smartphones. Running on rechargeable batteries and using Zero Ink Technology, it does not need cartridges, is easy to carry and connect to your phone, and even has fun stickers and filters on a companion app that are compatible with Android and iOS devices.
Light & strong
Budapest-based product designer Rita Koralevics has developed a paper pulp using high quality paper waste, glue, varnish and sawdust with which she has created various products by hand with rough, unfinished surfaces and minimal forms. Established in 2013, her brand Paper Up! offers serving trays and vases as well as jugs, bags, folders and ceiling lamps in various styles. For instance, the Dome+ lamp is made from cement and paper, a combination that ensures it is both lightweight and tough.
Classy & lazy
