Home gadgets of the future

We all have some sort of gadget, whether it is the latest mobile phone or tablet, they make our lives a lot easier. So why not have beautifully designed smart gadgets for your home? We showcase some of the coolest gadgets for your home.

Transparent TV



The transparent tv designed by Michael Friebe is a marvelous piece of technology that combines conventional LCD and the latest TOLED display technology. This creates non-transparent / solid moving pictures with rich color reproduction and full contrast range from solid black to pristine white.

Floor Plan Light switch





Have you ever had a problem with forgetting which light switch stands for what light? Taewon Hwang came with the great idea of creating a master light switch with a simple design that shows you what lights you are turning on or off.

Sony Eclipse





This Sony Eclipse concept created by Hoang M Nguyen and Anh Nguyen is a media player that uses photovoltaic cells situated on its backside to draw in solar power. With this player the chances of you ever having low power on your player are very slim.

Door Handle With Self-sterilisation System









Door handles are one of the biggest places a virus or bacteria lurks, so why not have a door handle that sterilises itself after every use?

Senzo Nightlight



It’s really annoying during the night when you wake up and not find the light switch. The solution is provided by Soledad Clavell and Marcos Madia who created this wonderful nightlight that lights up the room when touching it.

Electrolux Fireplace



This fireplace created by Camillo Vanacore for Electrolux looks almost magical because of its transformation from off to on, from an opaque ceramic column to a transparent one.

Eco Cleaner






Without using regular dish detergents, the Eco Cleaner makes the plates bright and fresh using ultrasonic waves to ionize food particles on the dishes, converting the food into reusable compost for plants. Less waste and more nutrients for plants are a good idea for the future and a solution for enriching the soil. Of course, we’re talking about the soil for the plants that you keep in your apartment.

On Switch



Minimalist and elegant. That’s how you define this light switch created by Burakov Denis.

iQ Alarm clock





Instead of the snooze button which you willingly press in the morning, this alarm clock has questions that need your lucidity to solve them. This way, you will surely get up fast in the morning.

Change It! Wall







This wall has been passed around on the internet for some time and has become a neat attraction. It’s not LED or anything digital, it’s actually made of turning triangles with different colors on them, white, black and a rainbow colour. It is limited at these three options for now, but in the future various patterns and images might become available.

Orbital Washing Machine





Washing clothes has never been so easy. With the incorporated basket you can load and unload the clothes in the washing machine as easy as 1, 2, 3. This isn’t the only innovative feature. The spherical drum is moving on two axes washing your clothes better than the old washing machines that use only one axe.

WAVE Ultra-Sonic Wine Ager And Refrigerator







Ever wanted to age your wine so that it will be of a higher quality? Designer Mika Yamamoto has created a device that does just that. The Wave uses magnetic cooling system that is based on the magnetocaloric effect, which is the ability of some materials to heat up when magnetized and cool when removed from the magnetic field. It reduces carbon emissions and increases energy efficiency. It can possibly cut energy consumption by 40%. It also reduces the cost of electricity.

iChef+ Oven







Cook dinner like a pro with this amazing (and beautifully designed) oven. It makes preparing a feast so much easier.

The Tulip Bath/Shower





In a small bathroom there’s always a problem with space and the Tulip Bath/Shower designed by Piotr Pyrtek provides the solution. Saving space is not its only feature, having a number of characteristics that qualifies it as a luxury item, like underwater jets or massage programs.
